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

Located a few blocks from Los Muertos pier, local hangouts Roxy Rock House and Bolero bar, Hotel Villa del Mar is standard, comfortable and clean, with charm and character all its own. The staff is friendly, helpful and courteous; housekeeping is tidy and prompt. Sadly, there is no pool at this hotel, but there is a nice large terrazza where... More

This is a nice place if you're on a budget. about a 5-10 min walk from the beach and the centre of the town. rooms were big and clean with bathroom attached. great roof terrace with a view over the whole town.

Look folks, it's Mexico. You can spend even less than this, depending how few amenities you can survive with. Many Americans and Canadians can't seem to adjust to the way the rest of the world does hotels, with less privacy, no carpet, and old world ways. This place is cool, if all you want to do is sleep and change... More

We stayed twice in this hotel and our stay at Villa del Mar was very good. It's a budget hotel so expect the best a budget hotel can offer. The hotel is divided in 2 different areas, both are clean, staff is friendly, free wifi at reception and complimentary coffee! The roof is great for relaxing moment at sunset and... More

I stayed recently at this hotel over a weekend in PV. The hotel was the worst part of vacation!!! There is no privacy at all... don't expect to get any sleep. The first night, a neighbor guest across the hall had his TV way too loud-- of course, you can hear everything every guest is doing because there are holes... More
