We have stayed in the Hotel Villa del Mar for many years and will continue to do so. It is a traditional Mexican hotel (not to be confused with the Villa Del Mar resort hotel). The rooms are basic but there is daily maid service, friendly staff and the hotel is located within walking distance to fruit and vegetable markets,... More

We stayed here for one night on our way home - we had spent most of our time in Punta Mita and wanted one night in the city. We were travelling with all our kids and their significant others; there was eight of us altogether. The hotel was very well managed with friendly staff and the place was CLEAN. The... More

Reviewed Seacruise's review about this hotel and booked into it for three nights. Everything that was said in the review was still appropriate even though the review was dated 2007. The noise off Madero was tolerable because the buses only came by once in a while after 11:30 pm. Great value and worth returning to. Very clean and the room... More

It had fast, working wifi and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. This is a 0 amenities hotel, but that was just fine with us. They tidied... More

The Villa is a nice clean, friendly place . It can be a bit noisy as people come and go, largely because... More

Very basic "just to sleep" hotel - no amenities. Even the wifi is really slow, room was a little bit dirty and the bathroom looked like nobody cleaned it for a while. And there is a window going on the direction - inside the hotel!

This area is not for families. I just arrived back from PV and stayed in this quaint little hotel. Once you go in it looks fairly nice - very nice workers also. Room was OK, not the best but hey, it's a budget hotel. The worst thing about it was I had to actually buy earplugs due to the traffic... More

I took a chance through Hotwire and what an unpleasant surprise we got. Hotwire classifies this hotel as comparable to Hamptons inn, Ramada Hotels, Comfort Suites, La Quinta Inns and 2.5 star rating. I can tell you that it is nothing more than a lie on behalf of the hotel and on Hotwire. We got there and the place is... More

I have been travelling to Puerto Vallarta since 1993 and have stayed at this hotel every time. The staff are so friendly and helpful. I feel so "at home" here. The mirador (roof top) boasts a great view of the city and lovely sunsets. Since the hotel is located near the local farmers market, one gets a great feel for... More

Stayed at Hotel Villa Del Mar on Madero Street from 1-15 December 2012. On vacation. Was very pleased with this hotel. Expedia picked it up as a listing in 2012. Much repeat business, especially Canadians. Guests would congregate on the roof around 530 pm to chat about their day. In the neighborhood, there are cafes, laundries, grocery stores, pharmacies, etc.... More
