I absolutely love this resort -- infact, I purchased a time share just this past May. The all-inclussive option is great if you have a good appetite or have children! The pools are amazing and the staff extremely friendly.

Nice Hotel

Pros: Location
Cons: Make it more clean. Get rid of stained towels and blankets for God's sake. For the money this hotel charges, guests should be seeing stained stuff!
Location: The beach is great. Very convenient to do water activities. 7 minutes taxi ride to downtown and 5 minutes away from Walmart.
This hotel is in a good location as far as water activities are concerned. This was our second time staying here but probably last. This time the hotel seems a bit dirty. The blankets and towels were stained - we found several bugs on our bed (in both rooms) and also the room was infested by ants. The staff had to come to our room on a daily base to spray for ants.

... indifferent, I really wanted to love it

I will say that overall the hotel is beautiful, better than a lot of hotels. Compared to the other two Villas, Villa del Arco is my favorite. But this is why I give it 1 star: At first glance, its gorgeous, but for this trip it was the little things that added up. I had a stain on the cover of my blanket, the paint in the corner of the shower was peeling, and I was caught off guard by the blunt nature of the concierge telling us the Airport Taxi guy who tried to sell us on tours, was scamming us, apparently its a HUGE problem there. But the kicker, and what I could have cared less for, was the aggressive nature of the Time Share sales team (or as they called it, they well an "Experience"). Charming as they were, they wasted 7hrs of our day, after saying no multiple times, then telling us American's have a fear mentality, then placing us in the back office saying we needed to take a survey, but sending in two more sales people - I will say I learned my lesson. After a strenuous day, we tried to shake it off and just enjoy what little time we had left. Location - Perfect distance away from the marina, very nice beach that's swim-able, few blocks away from Costco and about a 16$ shuttle ride away from the airport.  The Paddle boarding lesson - 5 mins on the beach and then they said, "ok have fun". Never having done it, I gave it my best effort, tried to master it in a little over an hour but the water was rocky. In all, I'm glad I didn't have to pay for the lessons or the rental. I ended up losing my Oakley's from falling so many times. I am glad at least the boat taxi's had a good laugh and enjoyed it.  Restaurants - I loved the location and the relaxed nature. But be aware this hotel has a NO CASH policy, which I was unaware of until check out. Though, they were happy to point out with a smug face that it is stated on the paperwork they handed us at check-in. They also mentioned it was up to the wait staff to inform the guests and someone would probably get fired for that error. Honestly, it should have been mentioned and highlighted when we checked-in to avoid that issue; instead we had to deal with at check-out.  Staff - As long as you read all the paperwork they give you, they are lovely. Such nice people in Cabo and they are really always willing to help you out. But they are very quick to place blame on who is responsible for an issue. Even if it was the customer. Though after I apologized for the misunderstanding I was treated better!  In all - As long as you avoid the gimmick of time shares, keep to yourself, enjoy the beach, charge everything to your room and not drinking the water - you can avoid ending up in the hospital when you get back home. Thanks Villa, don't think I'll be going back to Mexico. I'll stick with Costa Rica.
