In the heart of Puerto Vallarta -- where the romance of Old Mexico permeates everything from the silky beaches of Banderas Bay to the lush and verdant Sierra Madre mountains, to the very cobblestone streets of the downtown -- and clothed in the warmth, friendliness, and exquisite ambience of this tropical vacation destination, stands the beautiful Villa del Palmar Beach Resort and Spa. The resort welcomes you with a fine blend of friendly service and traditional Mexican hospitality.
Centrally located in the middle of Vallarta's vibrant northern hotel district on Banderas Bay, and only five minutes from downtown and ten minutes from the airport, the Villa del Palmar houses 564 air-conditioned rooms and suites featuring studio, one- and two-bedroom suites, all with private balconies, and a kitchenette or full-sized kitchen, depending on the type of suite. Inside the accommodations are comfortable: Tile flooring, marble bathrooms, kitchenettes or full kitchens with a full complement of dinnerware, cookware, and kitchen appliances, with a table setting for four or six, King- and queen-size beds, pullout sofas, patio furniture, and deluxe bathroom amenities. Suites have either ocean or pool and garden views.
The U-shaped 6-floor beachfront Villa del Palmar features a large, multi-story atrium lobby where the openness is exhilarating and the mood is festive. The lobby opens onto manicured grounds and a large and beautiful free-form pool with an island in the center, accessible by a span arch bridge on either side. This "center stage", if you will, is used by staff to lead pool games or entertainment. There are daily activities in the pool, such as scuba diving training. Palm trees and groomed vegetation surround the perimeter as the pool area bursts onto a glorious vista of the Bay.
Other facilities at the Villa del Palmar include a full fitness center with the latest cardio and weight-training equipment, a full-service Spa with a wide variety of treatments, an internet cafe / deli, jewelry store, and small yet complete supermarket.
