I stayed in the Hotel Villa Del Mar twenty years ago as a student in the New World Teachers Program at the University of Guadalajara-Puerto Vallarta and resided there for a month (18 October - 17 November 1997). It was a great stay! Everyone on-staff were hard-working and kind: the front desk ladies were knowledgeable of the local area and the city at large and the cleaning ladies were always very hard-working, diligent, and accommodating. There are several restaurants, tortiilerias, cafes, and shops nearby, and the beach is only aobut six or seven blocks away, and the Municipal Market Rio Cuale is very near, as well. It was a JOY to stay here! If I ever travel to Puerto Vallarta again, I know whwre my wife and I will stay: Hotel Villa Del Mar!

Room Tip: Be kind and communacative to the front desk people, and they will bend over backwards to help yu have a great, great stay.

Hey... it is what it is. It's certainly not a luxury resort, but they're not charging luxury prieces. It's an older traditional Mexican hotel in a charming neighbourhood a few blocks from the beach. The rooms are small by US standards, and there are few amenities. But it's clean, the bed was comfortable, and the staff are friendly and helpful. There can be an issue with noise, and the internet in the room was spotty at best. And there's no elevator. Overall, we'd be happy to stay there again.

Room Tip: If wifi in the room is important, try to get a room closer to the front desk.

Hotel is comfortable and clean. Maid service daily, but our room didn't get cleaned until late afternoon, making afternoon siesta bothersome. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. WiFi is good if you are near the router (we weren't). Our room was located overlooking the road and got quite noisy. Closing the window helped some.

Hello,

Thank you for your comments. The hours to clean your room its from 9:30am to 4:30pm if you had told us about your siesta time that wouldnt be a problem for the maid to clean your room before that. Its about communication on time to help you have a great stay at Villa del Mar. We have wifi in common areas not at the rooms.

I have stayed here in 2015, 2016, and will be staying again this year in February. This is a great little hotel for a low-key, low-maintenance traveler. The staff is very friendly and the housekeepers do a fantastic job on making sure your room is cleaned daily. I've never had any issues staying here, would recommend for solo travelers like myself.

Stayed: April 2016

This hotel is exactly as advertised. The rooms are basic, clean, and affordable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, within walking distance to pretty much everything. The only issue is traffic noise. I will stay here again.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are a bit noisy, be aware when booking
