“Wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Thanks to all of the staff at Villa del Palmar for making our holiday so good. We stayed with 20 of our family and friends for my husband's 40th June 8th-15th. The rooms were spacious and kept clean everyday, the landscaping beautifully maintained, and all of the reception staff very helpful. The wait staff took great care of us especially through happy hour! Thanks from the Booker clan!

Room Tip: Can only pay by room charge at the pool and restaurants. Tipping in cash is a nice idea.

We have been going to this resort since the ealy 90's. We love the facility, the staff and the location. The rooms manager Miguel Valasco and his staff are the best and so helpful. The bellmen are also great especially Jose Lepe. The grounds are beautiful thanks to a dedicated staff of gardners. Housekeeping is great, Amelia and Martina are top notch. Can't wait until next May to go back

I love villa del palmar! I was thrilled with the service and felt like the people who worked there were my friends! They recognized me each day, and went above and beyond to make my stay memorable! I will definitely be coming back:)

This was my wife's and my 7th (?) stay at the VDP. This one was for two weeks. We had a one-bedroom in building 6. Room was good; no bugs, excellent maid service (hate the pillows, however). Left out money and electronics on many occasions- no problems. Left a small tip on the pillow most days which often resulted in our dishes being washed!
Spent most days by the pool. Very quiet. Maybe 20-30% occupancy? Service was good poolside- especially Ernesto. Professional and efficient. Never ate at the resort, except poolside lunch occasionally. Those meals were very good. Drinks were good. Three happy hours per day (noon, 3, and 5). Never had any special requests, so can not comment on guest services. The guys out front, Joel and Miguel, are fanastico! If you have a questions about anything PVR, just ask them. They work hard and are always willing to assist.
This is not a party hotel- rarely gets loud. Not many drunks. This trip however, did have a group that was very obnoxious (came from the bars drunk, yelling and screaming, refused to follow resort rules around the pool, etc.) We just avoided them and it was no big deal.
Keep hearing rumors that the VDP will close for a complete tear-down, but never had it confimed. I hope not, I really like this place!

My husband and I spent 2 weeks at this resort. For the first week, we had my family - a group of mixed ages. ALL had a wonderful time. The property was a great size to feel comfortable having the smaller ones have some independence, the staff and offerings were terrific - and very one couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. The food is excellent.

We have been staying at the Villa del Palmar, Puerto Vallarta for 20 years. This resort's location is superb, for easy trips to downtown, shopping and sight seeing. It is also within walking distance of many stores and restaurants.

The resort staff and Universal Vacation Club staff are very helpful and friendly.... Always ready to go the "extra mile" for their guests. Many staff have been with the resort for years, and welcome us when we arrive. The Villa del Palmar strives to improve their services and property for the comfort and convience of their guests. It is actually easy to never leave the resort. We spend each day on the beach, with one of 3 pools nearby. Their beach is one of the best we have seen in Puerto Vallarta.

As owners, we also believe that their timeshare organization, Universal Vacation Club, is one of the best..... You can stay at any of the Villa Group resorts in PV, Nuevo Vallarta, Cabo, Cancun and Loretto by simply booking with UVC, not trading!

Lastly, we return at least twice yearly, meeting with returning friends we have made from all over the United States. This shows that many agree with us.

Room Tip: Arrive early, if possible, for the best room availability. All rooms are nice, most guests have thei...

Wonderful vacation! The staff is pleasant and the grounds are superb, the rooms are nice and the location is great....The pool is super the hot tub is great.The only complaint I had is that no wifi (only for gold members), they wanted $12 a day for internet in the room...One disruptive group from California in the bunch ( that thought rules did not apply to them).We lived in the pool and hot tub. nightly entertainment at the resort. Food was good at the resteraunt, Service at the pool area by Ricardo was excellent.
