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.

great staff and location. the renovation is desperately needed (doubt if management will read this)

just returned from 3 weeks at VDP flamingos. we are owners and have been going there since built - i think about 10 years.fabulous location and beach. a $5.00 cab ride to bucerias and great restaurants and local culture. the good:-pool, beach, - just wonderful-excellent and helpful staff. NOTE: our chambermaid was maricela (room 3408A) and i cannot say enough good things about her and her partner. friendly, efficient, considerate, always smiling and didn't laugh at my spanglish. her towel sculptures each day were wonderful and made us smile. she makes us appreciate all the hard working mexicans who make our vacation so great.the bellmen are also friendly and helpful. as well as the concierge who somehow remember everyones' names.-restaurants have upgraded and added a taco/japanese one as well; the on-premisis market is good too-the buffet breakfast - 2 for1 b4 8:00am amazing - go for it - see pics-american $$ still pretty strong - i used an ATM in the mega shopping center and got a little more than 19 peso/$$. the hotel was 16.5-new supermarket - La Comer owned by same company as mega and in the same shopping center. we were blown away - fantastic and just as good or better than any i have seen anywhere. really. just a 20 minute easy walk or $4 cab ride.- the facility remains clean the bad and ugly- when checking in he front desk clerk was simply not honest with us. he assigned us what he called a special and great room - it was the farthest from the beach and above the bar and where all the fiestas are held - noise till 11:00 pm and could not go on balcony. after being there ten years expected better. her told us that nothing else available and that was not true. someone who checked in right after us, their first visit, got a room close to the beach on the top floor. last year a friend who is at a high level ownership had the same room for years and checked in and was told that the people in the room decided to stay longer so not available. he didn't believe it so he simply went to the room and knocked on the door as the occupants were rolling their suitcases as they departed. he was flat out lied to and called their bluff right up to the general manager. they lie. be aware of this.-there is now a strict class system based on the type of membership/ownership you have. the highest level 5 elite get everything at the expense of others. we have a basic ownership and soon, i was told by a few people, that we will be restricted form the higher floors, so unfair. when yo create higher level memberships yo add to what they get , you do not take away from others. think about the many levels of american express. when they add a higher level they never take form the lower levels. there will be bd feedback about this.- $8 was stolen from my room. it was on the dresser. pretty sure it was a maintenance person because it was there b4 wee left for dinner and gone when we returned and he was there to fix something. i didn't bother to report it because it would be "he said-he said."- our room was not yer refurbished. the sofa had stains all over it and we covered it w towels - disgusting. the mirror in the MBR bathroom had rust surrounding it. just not classy. - the lobby furniture is shabby, stained and worn and ready for the salvation army. embarrassing. - the wifi stinks. it is ok at pool and beach but we had no wifi in our room. had to go to lobby. it is also not secured which can be very dangerous. plus my browser will not open if it is not on secure network. i complained and they allowed me, for no cost, on the elite network and the trip advisor network which i think they charge $10 a day for. do not pay - insist on getting it for free because these are secured.i doubt if any management will read this. i hope others find it helpful.sam marcus

While in Puerto Vallarta for a vacation we were fortunate to be invited to spend the evening at the Villa del Palmar Flamingos. We enjoyed a fantastic dinner in the El Patron restaurant and had awesome service from our waitress Imelda. She was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed or wanted. We also enjoyed the show by all the entertainers.Sarah in the concierge was very friendly and helpful and made us feel at home. The hotel is very stunning and was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season.We hope to be able to stay at Villa del Palmar Flamingos the next time we visit the area.

Great vacation

We stayed here on a family vacation, rooms were spacious and clean, food was great, we especially enjoyed the sushi bar, David is a fantastic chef. Sarah at the concierge desk was great, she was always helpful and friendly. We also enjoyed the nightly entertainment and the activities during the day with Georgie. Would definitely recommend Flamingos to everyone and we will be back!

Welcome Home !!!

You have not experienced the warmth and friendliness of a resort until you have been to this resort. The staff here are over the moon in ensuring you feel like you are coming to your second home. Antonio, David and all the Bellmen staff greet you like you are related to them. Lucy at the conceirge can hook you up with any offsite dinner reservations. All of the poolside staff like Ignacio and Christobal literally run off their feet to get your food and ice cold drinks always with a genuine smile. You need a "grande pala", big shovel to build a sandcastle or ocean front beach loungers, Esteban is your man. Want to go paddle boarding, kayaking or boogie boarding just ask Ernesto on the beach. He is very knowledgable on best places to tour, where turtles, dolphins or whales have been spotted in the beautiful Banderas Bay. After a hard day at the beach the Spa is a must. Once you walk through the Spa doors and inhale the uber relaxing scent all your stress evaporates and thats even before you get into the aqua spa or get your well deserved massage. Welcome Home!

Great location, great staff

My husband and I stayed at this resort as our friends have a timeshare. We liked the location, although it is a bit isolated for those who prefer to be close to other restaurants and amenities. The pool and beach are well maintained, the food is good and the staff is excellent. Overall the resort is beautiful. We particularly liked our concierge, Sarah, who was from our home country Canada, as she was friendly and well informed.She definitely added to our stay. The timeshare presentation did not make us feel pressured, and gave us a free breakfast and 20% discount on food purchases. We had an excellent studio suite with a great view and the added bonus of a small kitchenette. We even had a nice balcony, something missing from the Mayan Palace accommodation in the Marina area of Puerto Vallarta. I would recommend this resort to those wanting a quiet, relaxing holiday.
