Last summer we bought a time share through the Villa Group at Flamingos, out toward Bucerias. We were able to get a GREAT deal at Villa del Palmar, so spent our first week there. We didn't want to leave! From the beginning, we were treated great by all the staff and made to feel special. Our concierge, Katy, was absolutely... More

This was the second time my husband and I visited Puerto Vallarta. The first time was just for a day because it was one of the ports on our cruise. From the moment we got off of the airplane, everyone was very helpful and very friendly. At the hotel, the front desk people were nice and also accomodating. When we... More

I own a Starwood, one bedroom timeshare and traded our week with II for a week in Puerto Vallarta for our anniversary. As we arrived we were attacked by timeshare representatives at the airport both for this hotel and others. Someone is at the hotel waiting for you to sell the hotel also just in case you successfully dodge them... More

I traveled with my wife and two friends. We had a 2 bedroom unit, had 3 full baths and a balcony overlooking the pool. We cooked a few meals, there were adequate pans and trays to make pasta, breakfast meats, etc. Beds were very comfortable, room was very clean and enjoyable. The location of the hotel is excellent, a $5... More

They do expect tips and such, but it's to be expected. My friend just got an awesome deal at this place which is what make me look up the reviews. Good deal if you can afford it! https://livingsocial.com/deals/42275?ref=conf-jp&rpi=10706636

Kayak tour for 30 minutes...WONDERFUL! The guys and girls who put on the show were beyond friendly! No pressure to buy anything. The food was o.k. but we had better dining outside the resort. One waiter actually asked where his tip was. But his Manager asked me a day or so later who it was and etc... Like the caption... More

I was a bit surprised with the quality of the resort since so many people were so harsh in their feedback. This resort has adequate amenities, is super clean and provided quality service during our stay. A couple things to note: - The resort offers free kayaking for a half-hour every morning. Take advantage, it's a great way to get... More

Olga Medrano, pool concierge provided outstanding service and effort in getting our whole family tickets and seating for an otherwise sold out Pirates Beach Party the evening of 4/21/11. Jeanette helped me get my medication from the pharmacy and helped to straighten out a medication-related problem.

We booked this trip through Costco and the price was very good. The website showed nice rooms and the resturants looked good too. We went with our 7 year old son and were well prepared for the time share sharks - they were not an issue. Just be firm. The room we were given ( a 2 bedroom suite) was... More

We just returned from a week at Villa Del Palmar, Puerto Vallarta. It was nice to get away for the week...and we were generally comfortable, but it wasn't what we were expecting. We are timeshere owners through Diamond Resorts (where we have always enjoyed our "home" resorts, which are very nice) and booked this through our timeshare exchange on Interval... More
