“Another great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We've stayed at this hotel 5 times and it never disappoints. We got amazing front ocean view this time and it was great to go to sleep and wake up to the waves/ocean sound. The staff is friendly and the hotel is very clean. There's plenty of activities to do at the hotel for families with young children or those who just want to relax and not venture outside the hotel. The area is very safe as there is a 24/7 guard security upon entering the hotel area as well as at the hotel. The pool is ideal for young children as well as for older children since it's not deep. There is a little market on the premises that is very convenient for "last" minute things as the prices are more steep than at the Mega. The Spa is awesome!!! The beach is also very nice as it is clean and the waves are not as big, it's a good beach for kids. The only reason I don't rate this hotel with 5 stars is due to their time share propaganda. I continue to find this annoying as they want to "hook" you into doing their time share tour within 10 minutes of walking into the hotel.

Room Tip: Book early to get the best room.

From the bellmen-esp. Luis, front desk staff (Kimberley, Odilla/ Ivan) to the great beach/poolside service from Cristobal and Jorge, our trip felt like we were king and queen for a day! The room was beautiful, clean and sunset views unbeatable. Go, go, go! All inclusive is great for 1st time visits, then try some of the local restaurants.

My family and I have been traveling around for a while, and have been to multiple hotels, but have NEVER been treated as good as we have at Villa del Palmar Flamingos. The service provided was excellent, from the gardeners to the maids. Everyone was so quick to help, especially the bell boys. Luis, the captain of bell boys, Alonso and Antonio, both bell boys as well, were the best. Kind hearted and hard workers. They have definitely made my family and I reconsider coming back to this hotel.

Room Tip: The suites are extremely comfy and are there for a good deal. You can get to the pool and ocean way...

I would recommend this hotel 1,000 times over. We had an incident where our reservations were made at the Villa Del Palmar in Downtown Puerto Vallarta instead of Flamingos in Nuevo Vallarta.
(I would not recommend this hotel Flamingos is so much cleaner and nicer, but the hotel staff is amazing)
But then Cesar got us over to the flamingos along with our booking agent within 24 hours. This resort is clean, the staff is super accommodating and so friendly. This was the best baby moon ever. I would recommend doing all inclusive. You don't have to worry about anything but tipping if you'd like.
Cons:
If I could tell you two things to stay away from. It would be the time share people and presentation and the flea market in Buserias. The time share presentation was the worst 90 mins of our vacation. The guy was a total jerk and was pissed off that we couldn't afford 40,000 dollars to buy a time share. He asked us what we were even doing there in Puerto Vallarta then? Thats when we called it quits and walked out on him.
We Also went to Buserias and were completely bombarded but people trying to sell us stuff. We felt so overwhelmed we only stayed for 10 mins. We fully went there wanting to buy souviners, but left feeling really shaken up from everyone literally shoving things in our face at every turn. If you like that by all means go! I personally, being pregnant, did not like being pushed in a bunch of different directions when all I wanted to do was browse.

I was impressed with this resort upon arrival...lovely location, grounds, fairly clean pool and fun for our group. As the week grew on the service deteriorated...secret is to be an owner and or tip BIG!!!!! Otherwise service sucks. Food is run of the mill and slow service ....buffet is fast and easiest. We did not get all inclusive for the first few days as we felt we would not use it, we had other plans off the resort. Last 3 days we paid all inclusive and the service changed...As soon as you go all inclusive, service and quality of drinks deteriorated as well. I would return, but not if service remains slow and poor quality food. I would look further into a hotel that appreciates and treats all their customers equally. Entertainment staff during the day was AMAZING AND FUN, but the shows were poor quality and boring. Rooms and propoerty top notch ....except marble floors and water...WATCH OUT SLIPPPERY...INCLUDING showers in the lobby/guest room and spa...one of the members in our party slipped and was badly injured. Beds were very comfortable, rooms extremely clean and nicely decorated.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view so none are bad. I would take 04 or 08 #'s as they are closest to elevato...
