My partner and I visited for three nights end of December and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were upgraded to a larger suite than we had reserved that had a large terrace with stunning view and sunshine nearly all day long. It's about a 20-minute walk to the center of things which we didn't mind at all -- especially once we discovered the wonderful bakery Mucho Pan along the way. It's so noisy and crowded in the center of town we were glad we made the decision to stay in this location. Also there are convenience stores, a pharmacy and some restaurants all right nearby. Breakfast was wonderful and they have a number of tables set up outside in the courtyard. Pool area and the grounds are all well-maintained and if you want to treat yourself, they have a little cinema on-site where you can plug in your device and enjoy a private screening.

Elegant and immaculate, VMC is an icon of comfort and quality. Well located and quiet; top quality service and now, an excellent chef, Patricio. The restaurant has been upgraded and provides outstanding dishes; my tartare steak rivaled anything I have had, throughout the world of haute cuisine. Good gym and other facilities for outdoor swimming and indoor sauna/massage.

We spent a long weekend here with extended family. Overall it is a beautiful resort in a beautiful city! The rooms were clean and spacious. The food was amazing. Chef Patrick was very accommodating to our requests and an unbelievable chef. All the staff was attentive and so nice. The general manager Luis was delightful and extremely helpful with our itinerary, transportation, etc. It was definitely one of our favorite trips and I would highly recommend to anyone.

Stayed last weekend with my family at the hotel. Service was outstanding, food delicious. Chef Patrick outstanding. We had a Junior Suite, incredible beautiful. We also used the indoor cinema which is a great amenity for our children who could watch movies. We had a couples massage at the Spa with Jenny and Teresa and they did a wonderful job. Facilities are really beautiful. Staff and management always very attentive. Can highly recommend.
