You couldn't ask for more

Posted 15-Oct-2014
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Didn't see anything that needed to be improved.
Location: We had other activities planned, so didn't get to explore what was close to the resort.
We haven't stayed at a resort before and Villa del Palmar Flamingos was an excellent choice for a first resort experience. Beautiful location on the beach and well designed facility. Everything is within a couple minutes walking distance. Everywhere we went the staff was friendly and asked how we were doing. There were plenty of activities to choose from and would keep you busy all day if you wanted.

Decent timeshare hotel in Riviera Nayarit

Posted 4-Sep-2014
Pros: Very clean.
Cons: Get rid of the timeshare sales pitch. Offer guests umbrellas or put up some kind of covered walk ways for food establishments.
Location: Nothing. This property is not in Puerto Vallarta. It is in Riviera Nayarit. You must take a taxi to Puerto Vallarta. Taxi will cost about $230.

The hotel was beautiful, the grounds were spectacular and the beach area was clean and inviting. The staff really tries to impress their guests with attentive service.

Decent hotel...poor customer service

Posted 4-Aug-2014
Pros: Awesome rooms. Great beach. Fun pool.
Cons: The food was very mediocre.
Location: Go do excursions through Vallarta Adventures! Hands down the best thing we did! Snorkeling and Zip lining were awesome!
The hotel is so-so...the wait staff around the pool and restaurants is alright. Beach is great...a little quieter since this hotel is more or less the last one on the end of the row of resorts. The customer service at the front desk really put me over the edge. When checking-out they tried to charge me for extra all-inclusive days, because their staff screwed up what they charged me when I was checking in. Not my fault. The manager wanted me to pay for HIS staff members mistake, otherwise "she was going to have to pay for it." She should have had to! I didn't make the mistake. All in all, they more or less held me hostage until I paid the extra $360...because you have to have a "check out slip" to give the bell boys before you can leave and the refused to give me one until I paid the "extra charges."

Beautiful resort right on the beach

Posted 30-Jul-2014
Pros: Big clean rooms, big pool and lots of space on the beach to lounge around
Cons: There was never enough umbrellas to keep you under the shade around the pool and on the beach. We were always told to wait until a umbrella was free.
We stayed at this resort all inclusive for 5 nights and everything was great. All the staff were willing to go out of their way to help.

Very nice resort

Posted 13-Jul-2014
Pros: Attention given to guests by all staff. Clean & spacious rooms with views. Clean bathrooms in all public areas. Great waiters
Cons: Front desk personnel could be more courteous. Better air conditioning in restaurant or open all doors to get ocean breeze.
Location: Reasonable distance to everything, we took one day for a drive to Punta Mita and downtown. Taxi driver was very nice and knowledgeable about area.
Loved hotel rooms and service in restaurants and around pool is excellent. The cleaning personnel were very courteous and did a great job. The food was very good and waiters and chef did all they could to please us. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel and hope to return soon.

Awesome facility, nice staff. Good food.

Posted 10-Jul-2014
Cons: Bartenders at the outside bar were not friendly.
Location: The snorkeling trip to the Las Meritas Islands was not worth it. Boring, long, and not good snorkeling. 140 people go snorkeling together.
Overall, very satisfied. Any complaints are not worth mentioning. The place is as nice as the pics. The staff is great. The drinks were strong.

My family had a wonderful vacation, I liked the amenities and the staff. Very helpful and approachable. Although it was rainy, we missed out on the fun outdoor parties that the hotel provides, we enjoyed our excursions. I just wish that the hotel would stop these salesmen is selling the properties out there, they are pushy and we felt very uncomfortable with them. We wanted to have a great and relaxing vacation and spend our time with family, not with real estate agents. The conversation we had took us out of our time enjoying.
