5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Just spent a spectacular week in CABO at the Villa Del Arco. One of the nicest places we have ever stayed at. The food was excellent, the staff was very helpful & always friendly, can't say anything negative about this place.
Don't forget to arrange your transportation to & from the hotel before you go. Beware of the scam artists at the airport. They can be really intimidating the first time. We went with "Transportation For Less". Great service, very reasonable & friendly. We dealt with Francisco (great guy).

Room Tip: Make it personal with the staff. Get to know their names. Don't go overboard with the tips. The...

I own a two week timeshare , two bedroom unit at the villa del Arco, Every winter I can't wait to get there. The two bedroom units are Hugh with everything you need, maid service is excellent , the front desk and bellman are all fantastic . And also the concierge girls are all very good. I have never had a bad experience at villa del Arco., if I ever had a problem it was solved very quickly and professionally. I highly recommend this resort because of the cleanliness, beauty, resturants and the overall accommodation . One word of advice you do not have to meet with the timeshare people if you don't want to, it's not worth the discounts they give you on excursions .

I've never stayed at the del Arco, but I've been to the spa here a few times. I always stay at La Estancia or the del Palmar. But the spa is SO AMAZING! I always wake up early and get a massage. They give you something like 20% off for coming really early. (7:30 or 8ish) And the staff are so nice. It's great. After your massage, you're welcome to the rest of the facilities for the whole day. So my sisters and I get massages and then hang out in the whirlpool and the sauna and the steam room and just relax. It really is an amazing way to start your day!

My mother and step-father have a timeshare here at Villa del Arco, and they brought us (myself, the husband, and our 2 children) here for a holiday. The kids barely let us change them from their plane clothes, and they hopped right in the children's pool/fountains. The grounds are beautiful, lots of sprawling pools, one with a waterfall, and another with a giant pirate ship in the middle (which also doubles as a snack bar!). The rooms themselves are large, nicely appointed, with daily maid and turndown service, plus a little snack came every afternoon to our room; sometimes it was cake, others it was chocolate.
we went down to the sister resort, Villa del Palmar most nights for dinner and entertainment. My daughter loved participating in the show and constantly wanted to go back so she could dance on stage! The food was fairly decent, some weird stuff, but generally pretty good (especially dessert). The breakfasts in both resorts were pretty similar... i preferred the ambiance of the del Palmar buffet, and my husband del Arco.
We swam every single day, my 2 year old loved the water! There were lots of families on vacation, so my daughter (4) made lots of 'vacation friends' and had a blast swimming and playing with them.
Over in del Palmar, there was a kids program (but we didn't end up using) and a place where you could pick and paint your own pottery- the kids loved that! There is also a free trolley that takes you back and forth to the two sister resorts... my son being in a stroller, however, we usually found it easier to walk, which was fine b/c they are close enough.
Overall, it was a great family getaway!

I own a timeshare at Villa Del Arco. This was my third visit to the property. It is well maintained and the staff is great. You need to separate the resort from the time share sales that many (myself included) find objectionable. I bought my timeshare on the secondary market and saved a lot of money. If you sit through a "presentation" that is your fault!

We have gone to Villa Del Arco for a couple of years now since it opened and it is heaven on earth. The rooms are ALL ocean view. The staff is wonderful!
The restaurants on the property are fantastic - we were there for 7 nights this last trip and ate a different one each night - the brick oven pizza is wonderful and fresh! The taco bar at the pool is great - such a simple idea!
Would recommend to families and singles - we loved it!
The gym, tennis courts and spa are great!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool, closer to the beach
