Villa del Mar
- What's Included
OverviewFor years, budget travellers to Puerto Vallarta have given the Villa del Mar top marks for value. This dollar-stretching 'little sister' to the adjacent Villa del Palmar Resort is comfortable, intimate, and a popular choice for families and couples. Guests have access to all facilities at the Villa del Palmar, and enjoy the friendly atmosphere, convenient kitchenettes and proximity to the beach and downtown activities.
Location: Steps to the beach, 15 minutes to Bucerias, 10 minutes from downtown, 10 minutes from the airport.
You get what you pay for ...except in this case I got a bit more. Bargain, clean hotel in the middle of the old district. Huge balcony, satellite TV with English channels. Unlimited HOT water. Luc Marie, at the front desk took care of all my concerns and she speaks English. I was there the 3 days before Christmas and had a great time. They stock 3 English language tourist magasines which were helpful. Free coffee, not Nescafe, every morning. The price was only 500 pesos, which is now 700 until mid march. Lower without the balcony. Actually, for the price and location, they should get 5 stars which I may change if I cannot come up with any negatives. By the way, you don't save any money booking online so it is easier to just call them and I didn't even need to give them my credit card #. Total trust and my room was ready when I got there.So, if a 2 star hotel is what you are after, this one is much better than my previous favourite....Hotel Belmar.....and same location and price.Just book and go.Enjoy.Laird
This was a little hotel with a little price (I think less than 400 pesos per night at the rate I got). For that price one should not expect luxury. And make no mistake, one does not get it. But what you do get is a clean and basic room in a good location. I loved the location and tried many of the little 'hole in the wall' type of restaraunts that are in the same neighborhood. It's also close to the beach, the Malecon, the bus terminal. I liked the rustic feel of the public areas. I also found the bed comfortable but I like a firmer mattress than most. It was also nice that water was replenished in the room daily. Internet was not very good except in the lobby. Would I stay again? Maybe I'd spend a few more deniero and get someplace with more amenities but the location and price is hard to beat. I stayed here after having spent my last three stays in Puerto Vallerta at Villa Premiere. Make no mistake, that place is leagues nicer than Villa Del Mar, but so was the price. My finances dictated a cheaper vacation this time around, and I was not at all disappointed by the different experience that staying at this place afforded.
We loved our stay at this hotel its basically a 3.5 but close to 4 star hotel, its older but well kept and cleaned, great hotel staff friendly and helpful. Check in was quick and they allowed us to check in 4 hrs early, check out was easy and quick. Hotel is right on the beach small but clean, lots of chairs, Two pools never busy, showers outside and a hot tube. The hotel is a 10 minute bus ride to downtown and the Marina, lots ofrestaurants nearby and across the street is a large shopping centre and 9 food trucks with a nice shaded sit down area. Wifi is $10 a day and a little slow, lots of day time and evening shows and dinners. We would most certainly return
I stayed in the Hotel Villa Del Mar twenty years ago as a student in the New World Teachers Program at the University of Guadalajara-Puerto Vallarta and resided there for a month (18 October - 17 November 1997). It was a great stay! Everyone on-staff were hard-working and kind: the front desk ladies were knowledgeable of the local area and the city at large and the cleaning ladies were always very hard-working, diligent, and accommodating. There are several restaurants, tortiilerias, cafes, and shops nearby, and the beach is only aobut six or seven blocks away, and the Municipal Market Rio Cuale is very near, as well. It was a JOY to stay here! If I ever travel to Puerto Vallarta again, I know whwre my wife and I will stay: Hotel Villa Del Mar!
Hey... it is what it is. It's certainly not a luxury resort, but they're not charging luxury prieces. It's an older traditional Mexican hotel in a charming neighbourhood a few blocks from the beach. The rooms are small by US standards, and there are few amenities. But it's clean, the bed was comfortable, and the staff are friendly and helpful. There can be an issue with noise, and the internet in the room was spotty at best. And there's no elevator. Overall, we'd be happy to stay there again.
