The Villa del Mar and, to a lesser extent, the sister property next door, Villa del Palmar, are undergoing extensive updating and reconstruction of rooms, parking areas, paths and grounds. The workers start early and, at least some of them, work till dark. From 8 am until at least 6 pm, one hears drills, saws, hammers and cement mixers. I... More

Spacious clean rooms with kitchenettes & huge bathroom. Excellent staff keep everything spotless. Transit is right outside the hotel, walking distance to large supermarket. Only draw back was NO internet - only for the owners of the condos. Restaurants were very good. Would stay there again.

Upon arriving at this resort from a much larger and more luxurious resort in Nuevo Vallarata, my family and I were a bit disappointed. The resort, itself, is on the small side, and seemed rather cramped after our previous sprawling resort. Although the resort is beachfront, and the small grounds are pleasant, the designated swimming area is very small and... More

We stayed at the one in Cancun last year and it was awesome. We felt this would be a good as well. The staff was amazing, everyone was super nice and very helpful. The grounds were amazing and the pools and hot tubs were beautiful. The rooms have beautiful bathrooms with custom tiled soaking tubs. The huge king size bed... More

The hotel grounds are beautiful kept, I was very impressed. It is connected to the Villa del Palmar, so you are able to use their facilities as well. Including the Palmar's, there are a total of 3 pools and 2 jacuzzi's so you can choose whichever you want (the quiet or the loud). There are tons of activities going on... More

Paradise in Mexico, A beautifully kept and spotlessly clean resort. The rooms are bit dated in the del Mar area, but really, how much time do you spend in your room while in Mexico. Staff is friendly and welcoming. We would like to thank Claudia Gonzalez; she was our Guest Services contact and she gave us excellent service with room... More

Beautifully kept, spotlessly clean. The rooms are bit dated, but really, how much time do you spend in your room while in Mexico. As long as the beds are comfortable and it's clean. And the beds ARE comfortable. Staff is friendly and welcoming. They do try to get you to attend a "breakfast presentation" which is your "timeshare accosting", but... More
