We've been to Mexico many times but this was our first trip to Cabo. This hotel is in the Villa group which has other 1st class hotels in Mexico. This hotel was the 1st hotel in the Villa group but has had a recent renovation. Most people don't want to go on the tours for Time Share, but I will often go to see the quality of hotels because I might come back and stay in them even if I'm not buying. They are always very nice condos that offer higher quality places to stay. After 20 years of traveling to Mexico, we finally bought one at Villa del Arco. It was the best opportunity to stay in high end resorts around the world that I've seen at the best rate. I like to stay at places that have steam rooms, excercise rooms and spas. Villa del Palma has all of it for free when you stay there. I played golf at Cabo del Sol in twilight starting at 1PM and loved it. It was $110 for the desert course but you got the breeze off the ocean and could see the ocean for about 15 holes. I played it twice and loved it. Beautiful clubhouse where we had lunch before golf. It was not crowded at all and easy to get on. It cost $20 taxi to get there ($40 round trip).

We had a lovely 6 day vacation at the Villa del Palmar in Cabo San Lucas. The staff was very helpful and service was impeccable. They wanted to make things right, down to the daily maid service. The restaurants on site were varied and well priced. The deli/store was well stocked for an incidentals or in case one had the urge to cook.
The concierge service rendered by Christine and Monica was very helpful and they outdid themselves making sure our activities were perfect and that our stay there was safe and fun.
We did a timeshare presentation and the reps in sales were gentlemen in every regard and stated the facts and didn't make us feel uber pressured or anxious in any way. I would definitely visit this resort again.

Room Tip: I personaly like to have a room on the outside of the building so that I can hear the surf. Fourth...

Stayed here for a week in April right after the Spring Break rush. Check in was no problem, got a room on the left side with a great ocean view. Second day while cooking dinner our AC unit started leaking. Andres at the front desk was great and quickly helped us move to another room (better-first floor and closer to the beach). They also comped us dinner at the restaurant since we couldn't finish the spaghetti we had started. Rest of the time was great, the front staff (Andres, Luis, Dagoberto, Efrain) all were beyond helpful with anything we needed. We never got asked to do a timeshare presentation and had no problems after the AC incident. We booked through Costco travel and got nice little chocolates or goodies each night. I wish it was a little closer to downtown but it wasnt that bad with the taxi. Its either $7 if its close or $2 a person.

Room Tip: Take a south side room, best view!

excellent food and service. Of all the inclusive resorts--the staff here was the best--bar none.

Luis--bell person- was very helpful during a sprained ankle incident--a wonderful, caring and concerned person. Personable guy, who seemed very caring and loves his job. Again, Luis was the greatest help to us through this small incident

Alan---dinner server, and a most wonderful, caring person. Made us a Santana CD tape to take home. We shared the same Rock likes--Many thanks, Alan. Very personable--always looked for a table in his vicinity.

Room Tip: We were on the 7th floor and everything was quiet. When we were there, there was a U2 legend concert...

I have recently stayed at Villa del Palmar in Cabo San Lucas and I had an absolutely amazing time while staying there. I love the location of this resort and all of its benefits which include the beach, the excursions, and the service. I would like to acknowledge a particular person who was extremely helpful and welcoming, Efrain Rojas gave excellent service. He was very friendly and helped out with everything he could. I would also like to say that everyone at the resort was just as equally as friendly and easy to talk to. They always smiled and tried to help out. I plan on staying there again when I have the chance to go back to Cabo.

My boyfriend and I went for a week. Some small/minor things: We went to our room to find 2 queen beds, not a big deal we just pushed them together. Then a leg fell off of one of the beds, no big deal, we put it back on ourselves. One day the screen door wouldn't open. After a bit of a struggle, the whole thing fell off the tracks and almost off of my balcony! Again, not a big deal we put it back on the tracks ourselves. It was pretty loud at night. There was a slight smell when you went down by the sports bar. The pool was closed for two days as well as the beach due to the waves (on different days). Neither were a problem because there is a ton of seating!

Good things: We found the kitchenette to be very useful!! We did not purchase an all-inclusive package (but next time we will!) so we went into town a lot to eat or made dinner in the room. They had just enough pots and pans, utensils, tupperware, and a blender! Another great thing was the hospitality staff! Carmen by the pool and the bartenders were so nice, so helpful. We enjoy eating as authentic as possible and the bellhop, Efrain Rojas, was a great source of information! He helped us with our bags the first day and remembered our names the whole week! We asked where the best fish tacos were and he said Lo Claro (?). It was DELICIOUS! We were very grateful. Fresh towels available by the pool were great too!

The final comment I have to write: We were swindled by one of the "concierge" ladies into a "free welcome breakfast" that turned into being one of the worst experiences! It was a timeshare "presentation" (my first) at the Villa Del Arco. The "breakfast" was supposed to last 90 minutes... 2 and a half hours later we were running out of there as quick as we could. Let me point out, no one told us how to leave so that was a challenge in itself! Honestly, it ruined our day.

Overall, I don't regret the trip. If I were to revisit Cabo, I would find somewhere else to stay.
