Stayed in PV for a month and stayed at VDP for 18 days. Good location between Marina and downtown. 3.50 dollars to both for taxi. Totally safe area to be in, Staff is great and food is good. This resort is 30 plus years old and is not a modern high rise but is well taken care of. That is...

My wife and I had a very nice, relaxing week in PV, visiting friends who live there...and seeing sights we hadn't visited for a long time. Staying at Villas del Palmar was outstanding. We selected that resort through a special with Sun Country Airlines (our "hometown airlines" -- we're from Minneapolis). It couldn't have been better. We requested - and...

The resort is well maintained and clean . The staff is helpful. But there is not internet serviced unless you pay $15.00 US a day but you are able to get free service at Starbucks and Liverpool Mall and Mcdonald but where you need it more you have to pay. Wake up manager and keep up on what's going on...

Took my wife here for Valentine's day vacation and so far this trip has been a disaster. Beginning when I checked in here at Villa del Palmar. I booked through "Book VIP" online a one bedroom suite for 8 days and 7 nights. When we arrived they put us on the 3rd floor in a older building on the street...

I was conflicted about this hotel, there are many things that are great, and a few things that aren't. If we only went with the stuff that was good, this hotel would get 4 stars. Let's start with that: This hotel is great value for money for those that want a resort but don't want to pay resort prices. You...

Several others have described the facility and services in detail and their views are generally consistent with our own. The people were great, the city/location were fine and the hotel, though a little dated, was more than acceptable. Our challenges were with the PV experience from the viewpoint of "all inclusive" travellers. Our family of four - 2 adults and...

Transportation: We opted for the $24 per person transportation from the airport upon our arrival. Unfortunately nothing is marked and the “Villa Del Palmar” staff we encountered at the airport were timeshare sales people, and could not direct us to our designated ride, we ended up taking a taxi, which ended up being less than the $48 we had paid....

Arrived on a busy spring break Saturday. Check-in was fast. Time share push was minimal; likely due to the fact that this was out 18th week of stay at the VDP and had already done the "tour" previously. Very impressed that even with the peso's de-valuation against the US$, prices at the pool have not gone up. This made happy...

Dear erkevin We really appreciate your loyalty to our resort. There were a few things about prices that you found high and still you want to come back, that is loyalty and we're so thankful for that. We would also like to thank you for your feedback regarding our housekeeping department and how it was able to meet your expectations....

Last summer, we stayed at the Villa del Palmar and it was fantastic. One of the wonderful qualities about the Mexican culture is that the philosophy "mi casa es su casa" rings true on all levels of Mexican commercial hospitality. After visiting 12 countries last year, it's been my experience that this is most often NOT the case. Arriving in...

“Any rooms are good overlooking the pool. Closer to front will get more noise from resorts on both sides of the location.”
