“Great night a Villa Premiere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

We stayed a night a VP after our 4 nights at Majahuitas (amazing, see my review). After 5 days at an eco resort, the luxury of Villa Premiere was much appreciated!

The welcome bubbly and massages were a great treat, and the concept of aromatherapy in your hotel room - WOW!

The location is great, you cannot get much closer to the action unless you stay in a condo or older boutique property, and we wanted luxury! Easy walk to the Malecon for shopping and dinner. We ate only breakfast at the hotel There was an error with our booking, expedia said we got breakfast included and the front desk did not. I was glad I printed my confirmation, because the front desk fixed it immediately without hesitation.

The pool and beach is lovely, we saw dozens of dolphins swimming barely 20 yards offshore! The beach is very rocky and not super swim-able so keep that in mind if you love being in the water.

Overall we loved Premiere and would definitely stay here again, even for a quick long weekend trip!

Room Tip: We did a jacuzzi suite and loved it!

It was a picture perfect getaway. When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by a beautiful woman who offered moist cool towelettes to cool off with and a glass of champagne. We were even massaged while waiting to check in! As you can imagine, by then it already felt like we were well on our way to escapemode!

We decided to upgrade to a honeymoon suite, which features an outdoor jacuzzi balcony facing the ocean. That was awesome. The balcony has room fora table for meals and coffee, a hammock, candles, and the mosaic jacuzzi. My favorite thing to do was candle lit jacuzzi baths with fragrant bath salts to the sound of the ocean waves, and a few times there were light rain storms that made everything dreamy.

The All-Inclusive feature rocks, there were more food opportunities than we had time to be bothered with! The beach featured great activities and water sports, my favorite activity is lying on beach side bed feeling the breeze and reading or napping, or sipping on a virgin pina colada. good times!

My husband and I had stayed at this hotel many times until 2008 but had moved to another property for our vacations. We came back to the Villa Premiere April 2013 and are so glad we did. The newly renovated lounge area and restaurant were beautiful and comfortable. Service was superior on each occasion we spent time there. We did not opt for the all inclusive on this stay so did not eat at all at the hotel though there seemed to be a great selection of options for a small intimate hotel. We will do that option on our next trip as we heard such wonderful comments about the food from the other guests we spoke to. The room was exactly what we had asked for prior to our arrival and was ready for us when we arrived. Check in was fast and friendly and the entire staff was always there to insure we had a peak Villa Premiere experience. The location cant be beat and with the improvements to the sidewalk into town, its an easy stroll to see the sights and bustle of the Malecon.

This resort is quiet and serene but if you want a bit more wildness or an abundance of sunny lounge chairs by the pool, you can go next door to the sister property and enjoy the good service they also offer.

We cant wait to be back next time.

The discouraging comments about Mexico were squashed at first step out of the Airport.
It was so good of Olympus tours to greet & shuttle us straight away from the busy terminal.The welcome & service at V/Prem was excellent, the massage & Champers makes you soon forget the Hectic World outside, a great start for our Mexican Experience.I had full confidence in the staff as we ventured to & from the Hotel on our treks.A great location for tours & the real town.
The Brekky on the Beach-side was a "grand-start" to each day,the Hotel is aptly named.

this was our fifth trip to puerto vallarta.It was our first time in villa premier and wont be the last one...the staff is amazing and will take excellent care of you.the rooms are nice and all have ocean view..The location is just a few blocks walking distance to the malecon.The food is excellent and the presentation is wonderfull.

only downside,you have to wake-up very early to get a good place around the pool or on the beach(palapa).

yes we were approached by vacation club representatif,they were very professional and after refusing to assist at the presentation,they kept their good personal services going.So we will give them an oportunity on our next vacation in november.

in general,we had a great time and would like to give a special recognition to isidro a bellboy,patricia at reception,stefano vipservices and pablo concierge.

Keep the good job and seeyou soon..

We love this hotel. The staff is amazing. Everyone at the front desk bends over backwards to accommodate any request or help with reservations. The welcome massage and glass of champagne sets the stage for what is in store during ones visit and it is really about providing excellent service with attention to detail. The hotel has only 80 some odd rooms so its small and adult only which we also enjoy. The rooms are not "fancy" but we designed with comfortable bed nice bathrooms and all provide an ocean view. The location is one of the attribute we love because we can literally walk everywhere. Every morning we walk from an hour or more walking along the malecon to Old Town and epxloring before heading back to a day poolside. Omar and the staff at the pool are eager to help and provide excellent service. We eat most breakfasts and lunches at Villa Premier but we go into town to explore all the wonderful restaurants at night. El Barracuda's is just down the beach and a great spot for a casual lunch. We love this hotel and look forward to returning.

As everyone else already stated, the staff are excellent, the food is excellent, the rooms all have great views. HOWEVER, we were ambushed within minutes of arriving by Stefano, the timeshare guy. We did not turn up to his "breakfast" for info on the timeshare for "saving money" on our next trip to Villa Premiere. When we saw him next, he was very rude, aggressive, and made some very inappropriate comments. What a disgrace this man was to both the hotel and his Canadian roots. I would encourage anyone to avoid Stefano as soon as they arrive.
