The hotel was clean, had various food options, and the staff was bilingual and courteous. I would go to this hotel again simply for budget. I will note 3 things that did not make this trip better than other Mexico trips I’ve had. 1) They did renovations in the room next to ours on our last night. They were incredibly loud, not only the construction, but their music. We were trying to relax and take a nap, but it was so loud and our room began smelling overwhelmingly like paint. While lying in bed, my husband went to hang something in the patio and there was a man in the neighboring patio painting the roof and could see completely in my room. What if I hadn’t been dressed? We went downstairs to request a new room, which they gave, but it was incredibly annoying considering it was our last night stay. Why not put us in a different room in the first place, or hold off construction til the next day? I ended up losing a small piece of jewelry in the move. Our second room had a leak in the roof which we noticed during the rain. 2) We weren’t told which restaurants were open on specific days. As a result, we didn’t get to try all the restaurants because they weren’t open on the days we planned to. 3) Lastly, the timeshare approach. Our rep was nice, but after 6 hours on a plane, a few more hours at the airport, driving, and checking in, the last thing I want is someone to sell something to me. I just want to relax.

My family and myself had a great vacation at this hotel

Pros: Quiet, great staff
Cons: No free Internet, airport transportation
I visited this hotel last summer and I recommended this place to my other friend. We came this summer with two families. I wish the hotel provide two things: 1) Free shuttle transportation to/form Airport 2) Free Wiki Internet access. The $12 wiki is sorta expensive. Otherwise everything was perfect.

Satay way from the timeshare presentation!!!

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
The place is good, the only item that I would caution my fellow travelers on is the timeshare presentation. They are very highly motivated to sell the place to the point of insulting you. Stay way from the presentation if you can!!!!! If you can't, asked for the foreclosure price..

Great vacation!

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, great pool, nice beach, restaurant very close to the beach; great views, good food
Cons: internet access costs extra
We spent a week at Villa del Palmar Flamingos during the last week of March, and had a great week! The resort has a beautiful pool, a great beach, very nice rooms, good security, and it's in a safe area. We had the two room suite, which was awesome; it had a kitchen, a dining area, living area, washer and dryer, huge furnished balconies, big bedrooms, nice bathrooms... the rooms are beautiful, with stone floors, nice furnishings. We loved it! The bed was a little firm, but even though I am used to sleeping on a softer mattress, I found it to be comfortable. We opted to do the all-inclusive option, and the food was overall very good. It's not the best I've ever had, but it was good, and far better than other all-inclusives we've tried in the past. We did tip the staff, as they only get a few dollars a day in tips from the all-inclusive packages. As with pretty much every resort we've been to in Mexico, they will try to get you to sit through the time-share presentation and tour. We refused. All in all, we loved it, and would go back again.

Can't wait to go back!

Pros: Quiet, washer in dryer, hotel grocery store was well priced
Cons: No free Internet
The Villa del Palmar was really a great location for our family vacation. The timeshare sales pitch wasn't so bad if you just stood firm and said no to all offers. The 20% discount for the week made sitting through the presentation well worth our time. The rooms were very nice and our suite even had a washer and dryer in the unit, something we never had at the Grand Mayan. While the food options were a bit limited, the quality of food was very good. The beach-side fiesta had some of the best food I have ever eaten. If you really want to go fancy you will need to leave the property but we don't eat many fancy meals so the steakhouse and Italian restaurant fit us to a T. The resort staff were fantastic and made you feel like more than just a guest. We cannot wait to go back to this location.

Nice and Comfie Hotel

Pros: clean and safe
Cons: too far out from main sites
The Villa del Palmar Flamingos Hotel was Great! Outstanding service. The staff were friendly and accomodating to our every needs. The only thing I did Not Like is the sales pitch of the hotel to join their timeshare. But apart from that it was a great stay. I'd definately recommend to friends. The hotel is situated far from main sites of Puerto Vallarta so it was a 40 mins drive to get to old downtown Puerto Vallarta and the main sites. But the hotel is safeguarded by security at the entrance which was great.

Villa del Palmae Flamingos Beach Resort Anonymous from MN

Great resort. Loved it. Absolutely perfect 6 days. Hotel, service, pool, beach-exceptional. We did all-inclusive and found it to be very good and a great value. All-inclusive: breakfast: you can choose the breakfast buffet or order off the menu; lunch: we ordered lunch on the beach from the pool pizza bar-the pizza was good and the chicken kabobs were excellent. Dinner was good in both the Bella Vista and the Italian restaurant (the pool bar becomes an Italian restaurant at night.) We went into Bucearias, a fishing village north of the resort and ate at Adauto's, at the recommendation of Antonio, Bellman Extraordinaire. Fabulous octopus, lobster burrito, seafood nachos. Tip: Just say no thanks to the time share recruitment, which begin at the airport. Don't be taken in. It is not worth the discount or the cheap bottle of tequila. Great vacation.
