Our Opinion

Popular with Canadians and has been recently renovated. All rooms have kitchenettes in rooms and there is a mini-mart so guest and take care of their own food if they get tired of the all inclusive. Resort has a very nice pool area with waterfalls and slides.


An all-time favourite with Canadians just got better. This beachfront hotel is newly renovated. Fun extras include outdoor barbecue grills, a swimming pool with waterfall and slides, day and evening activities program, and a handy mini-mart.

Location: On the beach, 10 minute drive from downtown and the airport.

Girls Trip

This trip was celebrating my long time friend and mine 60th Bday. First Girl Trip together. After changing rooms 3 times found one that was perfect. Our runners during the day were exceptional. (Jorge, Ramon & Chris) Never did without! Entertainment Staff was exceptional! Shout out to "Georgie" she was so inspiring from water aerobics to nightly entertainment - "Safari" was my favorite! If you want to just Relax, perfect place!!

Beautiful Resort on the Bay of Banderas

Our family of 5 arrived at the Villa del Palmar Flamingos resort on 9/9/2017 and stayed until 9/16/2017. We enjoyed the week at this resort. The rooms are very nicely appointed. The landscaping is well maintained. On arrival, we were offered cold beverages (beer, water, etc.). The views from all rooms are nice. Higher floors offer better views of the pool & bay. This resort is smaller than the sister locations in Cancun & Cabo, but less crowded & more quaint. Great for families. There is an entertainment staff guiding daily activities, should you choose to get involved. Pool activities included water aerobics, pool volleyball, & misc other fun games. The entertainment staff included Georgie, Mauricio, Tash, Ernesto, Sarah, & others that I can't remember the names. Georgie was my favorite as she was a friendly spirit among the group. The entire group made you feel welcome & at home. Days would begin for our family at the El Patron restaurant for the buffet breakfast. There is so much food to select from. We loved the fresh fruit & the custom omelets made to order by Gabriel each morning. Other people to mention that worked in the breakfast area were Marisol, Duglas, Enrique, Pepe, & many others. All working hard to make your vacation easier. Service was always great! We enjoyed eating the breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Bay of Banderas & listening to the waves crashing the beach. I could do that every day with a nice cup of coffee. Relaxing. After breakfast, we'd put on our suits and either head to the beach to try kayaking, paddleboarding, or wave runners, or just wading in the water/walking the beach. Ernesto was a great helper at the beach area for first time kayakers & paddleboarders. One early morning there were several turtles that hatched and we watched them work there way to the water. After time at the beach, we'd head to the pool for swimming/daily activities. You can order lunch from a menu offered by the servers at the pool area. Options included tacos from the taco bar, or many other things such as guacamole, shrimp skewers, quesadillas, etc. The servers were very good with prompt service. One of our favorites was Reynaldo. For dinner, there is El Patron or the Trattoria on the beach. We tried both and enjoyed them both. We preferred the Trattoria so we could watch the sun go down each night while dining or having wine. Favorite servers at Trattoria included Raul & Ramon. They gave us a special surprise for our anniversary! Quite a night. My wife & daughters spent one morning at the Spa. They had a great time. I enjoyed the wave runners with the daughters boyfriend. We took cab rides over to Bucerias on two separate days to shop & try a restaurant there. It's only a 5 minute cab ride away. Also have to thank Regulo for fixing a small issue with one of our rooms. Again, the service was prompt. Thanks again to all at Flamingos. We'd go back tomorrow.

Girls trip

Our experience was top notch! All of the staff were friendly and attentive. The activities and daily entertainment were fun, and varied. The food and service at all the venues could not have been better . We made friends among the staff, and guests. I look forward to our return. I'd like to offer a special thank you to Tosh and Georgie, for their warmth and amazing hospitality ! They brought fun and laughter to all activities. Thank you ladies . We received excellent services in the beautiful spa. The rooms and grounds were perfect and beautiful. And Enrique at El patron spoiled us !

Lovely time, great activities, great accomodations

This was a girls trip to Nuevo Vallarta for rest and relaxation. Completely accomplished our goals. Activities onsite included water aerobics, pool volleyball and guacamole making lead by the awesome Georgie and Tash. These ladies are part of an amazing staff who turn exercise into fun and always have a smile on their faces! Plus there are nightly activities including dance contests, Mayan night or a long dip in the hot tub overlooking the beautiful ocean view while the sun sets. Our 2 bedroom suite was comfortable and spacious with the view of the ocean! We went zip lining and snorkeling and had a blast! Highly recommend Flamingos as a destination.....plenty of R&R, but also close access to excursions. Rosy in the spa is awesome too!!! Thanks to Georgie, Tash, Enrique, Rosy, Oscar.....these folks help make a vacation even better!

Can't take No for an answer

Let me start out by saying that the resort is beautiful and ALL of the staff here are extremely helpful and friendly. Could not ask for anything better from the resort staff. Kudos to some great people! I am a Villa Group member and am because I was was scammed into it about 4-5 years ago. What my wife and I have is fine and works for us however with out fail, you are "asked" to go on a "members update" tour every time you visit one of the resorts. Again, the person that give you and update and takes you on the tour is extremely personable and friendly, so no complaints there. What really gets me is that it takes me becoming down right rude in order for them to get the hint that I do not want to purchase anything more, upgrade, but more points, anything. There is no need to take up time from my vacation for what is supposed to be 90 minutes (it never is). This is a great resort and I highly r commend staying there but do everything in your power to avoid going on a tour, presentation, update, etc. just enjoy the resort and your vacation.
