This is not horrible but it is getting a bit tired. Grounds are always kept clean and staff is always helpful. Beds and fixture needs some help tho. I would stay here again but only as a short visit if I need an overnighter in PV

The brightest spots of our stay was Monse, a young energetic outgoing young woman who works in the activity department and Miguel, one of the bellman. They always greeted us with a smile, never complained and seemed to genuinely love their jobs. However, services, activities and customer- focused engagement has deteriorated since our visit last year at exactly the same... More

So I had friends/family staying at The Friendly Vallarta. (Look for my review of the Friendly Vallarta. Excellent resort!!) but they were booked and I was unable to get in. So I got a room at the resort next door to it, The Villa Del Mar. The Villa del Mar is a complete waste of time. I got to the... More

The omelette maker, sorry forgot your name is the best. The hotel Manager very helpful on reservation mixup.

Reserved maroon with a balcony, none were available, rooms offered were not acceptable so I went elsewhere. Informed trip advisor and received no response, was charged for a room I did not use. I am requesting a refund.

There was mold growing in the kitchen and bathroom. Mouse droppings were on the bathroom window seal. There were electrical wire hanging down in a closet. The ceiling fan was dirty and bad paint jobs all over the place. On top of that we had a 1970's television that had terrible reception. If you went out on the balcony there... More

We arrived at Villa Del Palmar, the "sister resort" to Villa Del Mar, to check in. Honestly, we could not see the difference between the two. Together they both look like one large resort. We arrived at the resort about noon from our flight from LAX and knew that check-in was about 4:00. Imagine our surprise when we had keys... More
