We love this hotel and have stayed here 3 yrs in a row. There’s been some changes and a few things were a bit off....the maid service was not as good, for getting things or not cleaning the room until 5pm. The high energy of the staff seemed a bit tamped down now. But the place is lovely and the people all kind.

DO NOT STAY IN THIS HOTEL. It is no longer a place that takes care of its customers. Just checked out. We have stayed here over 30 times and brought dozens of friends, family, and clients here. We will not be back nor will we send anyone else here. The workers are excellent, from the doormen to the waiters and bartenders; however, the new management is abysmal. They no longer care about the guests. It seems their only concern is selling timeshares (which they just started doing a couple of years ago). It is very sad. A former paradise is now just another mediocre hotel with broken down equipment, rooms, etc. And the management does not care. Period.

This former travel agent LOVED the hotel!

Pros: Everything, including the location close to town so we could leave the hotel, walk to dinner and stroll the Malecon back at night as the sun set.
Cons: Nothing!
Location: The location is walking distance to downtown, which was perfect. A short cab ride to other locations or beaches.
From beginning to end, this hotel and it's people created a beautiful experience. We were greeted with a cold glass of champagne after a hot, dusty ride from the airport, cool washcloth and 5 min neck massage in the lovely lobby. I was a travel agent for 18 years and went on many "familiarization" trips to check out places in advance before we sold them. Many times the pictures are not accurate, the service is not up to pare, etc. This is truly a high class, beautiful hotel that is right on the ocean and had wonderful extras, like swinging beds by the pool, palapas on the beach, a swim up bar, open air lobby, the works. The beds are usually uncomfortable in Mexico and the mattresses and pillows were perfect at Villa Premiere! We'll be back!

Can't wait to go back!

Pros: Location, rooms, staff, food... everything!
Cons: The only thing that could be improved would be wi-fi connenction. It was spotty and not always available.
Location: Great location right on the beach, access to beach activities and within walking distance of Melecon.
Just returned from a 5 night 4 day stay in Puerto Vallarta at Villa Premiere and we can't wait to return! Already miss the staff, food, beach and fresh pineapple juice! The rooms were very clean, comfortable and spacious (King Suite). The housekeeping staff was amazing - very pleasant always and very helpful. Whatever we needed, they got for us. The front desk, butler and concierge staff were also great - again whatever we needed, they got for us and did so with a smile. The beach restaurant was delicious, relaxing and again the staff was wonderful and they spoiled us for sure! The pool was clean, the beach area was always clean and the staff made sure we always had a drink or food when we wanted it. We were spoiled by Villa Premiere, will go back again and recommend it highly!

Muchas gracias for your comment and continued preference, we appreciate it. Our staff also becomes fond of our return guests and in essence we are like family. We are very proud to be one of the top hotels in Vallarta and offer our guests a prime beachfront location in the heart of Vallarta that is an easy stroll down the Malecon and Old Town.

Jewel of Puerto Vallarta

Pros: Everything
Location: A very quick walk to the Malecon and into town. Perfect location
This was our 4th stay at Villa Premiere with many more to come in the future. The size of the property lends to an intimate feeling of paradise. The rooms are beautiful, clean and all boast spectacular views. The 5th floor master suite has become our favorite. The spa is serene and well worth a visit. The food is delicious in all 3 restaurants. We love the different themed nights as well. My absolute favorite though is the staff! We feel as if we are visiting family there. Many warm hugs of welcome when we arrive. I get tearful as we say our goodbyes and hug the beloved staff. We count the days until we visit again!

Beyond Acceptable!

Pros: Location and cleaniness
Cons: The treatment of guests!
Location: A wonderful restaurant just up the street, El Andreigo and Daquari Dick's near the end of the Malachon. Great art galleries in the Romantic Zone.
This COULD be a lovely destination, however, the company policy of coercion is beyond acceptable. Immediately following a pleasant, yet rushed, check-in, we were told we needed to talk to Maria/Mary, who proceeded to pressure us to listen to presentation by her colleagues, offering us discounts on tours if we did. We firmly told her we were tired and would do so the next day. She continually reminded us until we finally said we would listen over breakfast the next morning. Immediately after a rushed meal, we were taken to another room and shown a film, then seated with a sales person, when we said no to this person, another took his place, when we said no to that person, another took her place. Each one pressuring us more and more. The pressure and things that were being said to us became too much and brought me to tears. We were finally released after two and half hours. We attempted to be courteous and respectful of each person as individuals, and the respect and courtesy was not returned. We had agreed to try the all inclusive for 24 hours upon registration and decided not to continue with it. Upon the termination of the all inclusive , we felt the treatment we received from waiters and other employees was as second class people. Villa Premiere is a lovely facility in a great location. If they want to be in the business of selling time shares coercing and pressuring people that should be made quite clear in the advertisements and descriptions.

Not Impressed with this place at all

Pros: The food was good
Cons: Customer service, People on vacation don't like for the place they have paid there money to stay at to try and hustle them.
Location: The Pirate Ship is the only Excursion we found worth bragging about they do a great job and are very good people. The Dinner Cruise 7pm
When you get off the air plane you are met with a line of hustlers (Time share Reps) that make you think they are going to help you find your shuttle service. NOT After you make it outside to where your Shuttle service is they take you to the Hotel in a Taxi Cab which you could have gotten for much less than you paid for the shuttle service, You get to the Hotel and after checking in at the front desk a gentleman named Pablo will approach you and ask to speak to you for a moment I am thinking he works for the hotel and after checking with the front desk on check out They confirmed it. But they also rent a space to the travel agent that is also located there. He wants to get you to become a member of there club and says they will give you discounted rates for excursions all you have to do at the end of the presentation is answer yes or no. My answer was no. And no we did not receive any discounted Anything. After listening to 1.5 hours of crap they try to make you feel like your a cheap skate for spending your vacation time that you paid Very good money for to get discounts on a dang snorkeling trip. REALLY so I told them to keep there discounted snorkeling trip or give it to the man that said I was just trying to get the discounted trips He needs it a lot worse than I do. The front desk sees everything going on and never says a word, Nothing.. How is that for a start to your well deserved vacation. And yes we went on the snorkeling excursion at full price. 5' visibility.
