I've been going to this resort since they opened and I'm pleased to see people that have been there since the beginning - always a warm welcome. I think this resort has the nicest rooms of any that I've seen in the area. 1 or 2 bedroom units have a full kithcen including dish washer, closeWasher and dryer and top quality furnishings. Everything you need right at the resort, kayacs, bikes, hammocks on the beach, a beautiful pool and hot tub. They have two restaurants plus room service. AND it's close enough to Bucerias to walk there by the beach. I would highly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: All rooms have an ocean view and private balconies.

My wife and I just returned from a week at Villa del Palmar Flamingos and had a great time. This is a beautiful property kept in immaculate shape and the staff there is the best we have ever experienced. They will try to sell their timeshare but they weren't over-bearing. The rooms were very well appointed, very comfortable, it's nice to have the option of the murphy bed in case you have a larger party. Each room as a great view of the pool and/or the bay.

There are three restaurant options, however since we were there during off season only Bella Vista and Trattoria were open. Both were better than average! During their high season they also serve sushi on the patio of Bella Vista.

Now for the best part, the staff was outstanding. Agustin and Conrado at the pool/beach took great care of us. They seemed to anticipate when we needed something and were always there with a smile, great conversation and some great suggestions for drinks or your favorites. At Bella Vista and Trattoria Oscar and Ferdinand provided outstanding service and you definitely should have Ferdinand make you a Spanish Coffee!! One of the most valuable players at VDP Flamingos for us was Alonso at the bellman's desk. He made us feel right at home, gave us some great suggestions for where to go and what to do and what to avoid. He also made sure we knew what to expect for cab fares and made sure we got the best cab drivers. Last but certainly not least, you have to look for Pedro at one of the bars and ask him to make you something special. He was very creative making different cocktails we would have never thought about but we are trying to duplicate at home, they were so good!

Room Tip: Higher floors have a better view, if you travel during off season ask if what they would charge to upgrade to a penthouse, they looked awesome!

The place is awesome, with fantastic amenities. The only problem were the bartenders were lazy with the drinks they made. Over all, the place was wonderful. I would highly recommend this place as a destination for family and couples

We bought two weeks of time share at Villa del Palmar Flamingo before it ever opened. We have returned every year except one (due to a family emergency). We LOVE this place and love the people. We get hugs from our friends, the bellman, Luis and Alonzo as well as others who have served us well. We are getting to know Jose who worked hard for us this last time. The staff are marvelous. Our only problem has been the last couple of years with the pressure from the sales people. We are happy with what we own and don't want to change anything at all. We will opt out of owners update from now on and just enjoy our vacation in a beautiful setting and great place. Our best to the bellman who are all personably and have become friends.

Room Tip: We like rooms that are higher up because they have a great ocean view. Others like first floor because they can walk right out.

We returned to see so many familiar faces from last year. Our favorite bellman Alonzo, the pool/bar staff Conrado are always here to help us, or get us what we want. As always our room was emaculent, and a great view of Banderos Bay. The Bella Visa restaurant is as good as always. The staff is always looking to make sure our dinning experience is excellent. The activities employees are always finding ways to entertain the guest, special shout to Issac for making me do the tequila drinking contest (pancho pistola)!

If your looking for a place to enjoy yourself with great accomadations, clean rooms, and great staff, this is the place. Don't mind the timeshare sell, it's part of the experience, and they go away if you just say no.

Happy vacationing!
