Pros!!! -everyone is so friendly -the view from the room was epic, was able to see the sunset over the beach every night! -the beach was so close, it was kept in stuch clean condition, and there were lovely places to make camp for the day! - many interesting and delicious alcoholic choices with the all inclusive plan -overall I had an amazing and spectacular time!!! I definitely want to go back as soon as I can! Cons :( -picky eaters be ware! It's understandably difficult to cook food for so many people on the budget they must have for the price you pay... the food reflects the price -that's it! Only complaint!

The best ever

Location: The right spot
Everyone was so nice and helpful. We couldn't asked for better service at the beach bar. The night sift "Why Not" is what we called he was the happiest person on earth and his brother. It's not a 5 star but for what you pay it's a 10 star. Food was good and lot's of it. You could hear the waves in your clean room done by very happy people. Meant a lot of nice people from Canada and Mexico (this must be were they stay on there Holiday). The staff when you come in work very hard and they do it with a smile too. Bathrooms are very clean at all times. If you are a person that picks at things than go there and they don't need you either. There are lot's of places to walk to and good restaurant around, which you don't need if you go all inclusive. We would go back for sure.

Beautiful Beach, Decent Amenities, Not so great fo

Location: Book at least one tour outside of the hotel. I did the snorkeling, hidden beach, boat tour and loved it!
The hotel is located on a beautiful stretch of beach, lounges and canopies available for those that wish to tan or stay in the shade. Hotel layout is simple, nothing fancy however comfortable, clean. Staff has a hard time understanding English. Rental of Kayaks is allowed however there is no time limit so if someone rents it out in AM they can literally have it sitting on the beach and not using it for the entire day =(. My biggest complaint would be with the food. I consider myself a NON- picky eater. However my first dinner there consisted of lasagna (with no meat/cheese, very little sauce, and some greens), plain pasta, and i forget what other carbohydrate was available. The rest of the selection was some chicken that did not look appetizing and broccoli that was yellowing. The best meal of the day by far was breakfast. Lunch and dinner had very little selection and the food was either overcooked or under-flavored. I have been to a lot of hotels where the reviews for food were abysmal and loved it. This is the first place where I have to complain.

Small hotel in the middle of condos

Hotel was clean and staff was friendly but overall the hotel was small. Rooms need some updating - beds were old and uncomfortable. Even though it was all-inclusive, there was only 1 restaurant and 1 bar. Pool area was nice but water was too cold for swimming.

This hotel did not meet our expectations.

Pros: boogie boarding, friendly wait staff
Cons: poor food and drink quality, poor variety of food, uncomfortable beds
We were returning to Puerto Vallarta with great memories of a previous trip at at the Melia and expected something similar but less extravagant. We were extremely disappointed with the quality and variety of the food. We expected fresh fruit and fresh fruit juices. There was minimal fruit at some meals and no fresh fruit juice. Also, the quality of the bar drinks was lousy and the service was excruciatingly slow. The beds were uncomfortably hard. Primarily for these reasons, we would not return to the Villa Varadero or recommend it to our friends. However, there were positives. Some of the wait staff were delightful and we enjoyed them very much. Also, there were boogie boards available for sign-out. Boogie boarding in the surf for hours on end was the highlight of our trip.

great stay and great staff

The rooms were really clean and the staff was excellent (especially the bar tenders, a tall guy and his little wife were awesome!). the food was pretty good and the drinks were excellent. the only bad part is that the pool is FREEZING. we live in mexico and that water was cold, we never even went in it. other than that it was wonderful.
