Room not the one we paid for
JEFFREY H.
Jan 15 2018
The hotel overbooked rooms and we were not given the room that we paid for nor were we given the refund we were told we would receive for having to downgrade our room. For being "all inclusive" the signing of receipts for every item was too much.

Excellent Stay at Villa del Arco

All-inclusives are tricky. The food and service can be marginal at best. While VDA isn't 100% AI, you can purchase this option and based on the food in the restaurants on property at both VDA and Villa Palmar (sister resort) I would recommend doing so. The food quality was superior to most AI resorts we have visited in the past. There were excellent options, the service and food were excellent. The overall experience from the close proximity to town, the swimmable beach, friendly staff, lovely and clean property, and excellent food/drink options would bring us back. Note- there is really no nightlife at any of the properties on Medano Beach- I think they presume people will go into town so they don't try to compete.

Deluxe resort on the beach

The Villa del Arco is a great place to relax. Our room was enormous, well-furnished and clean. Everything was top quality. The breakfast buffet had lots of items with omelets and fresh fruit. The El Patron restaurant had delicious food and excellent service; the Neptune next door was not quite as good despite being much more pretentious. We had a great time and will return.

We were in Cabo for a wedding and this hotel was absolutely perfect! In unit laundry, kitchen and two bathrooms! We had friends staying a varying hotels and we liked the Villa group resort better than the others we were able to check out.

nice place but needs service improvements to compete with its high end price

Since most of the time is spent at the hotel poolside or on the beach in the roped off areas, one would expect premium attentive service for food and drinks, catered to the lounge chair locations to keep the liquids flowing. Unfortunately the staff has not learned that this type of service is the norm in the states, and expected/anticipated by customers, especially at such a nice place as Villa del Arco. Service was basically non-existent, and over the course of 6 days we had to continually leave our locations and go the bar, where service was also very poor and slow.

Truly wonderful and friendly staff

We had a great time at Villa del Arco. That is due to the staff. We were kept fed and hydrated at the Clarabridge Pool y Playa by Gilder. He was truly a joy and very attentive. Our daily breakfast at Patron Restaurant was always great. Celia (the omelet chef) is wonderful and so friendly that she always brought a smile to our faces. Our favorite dinner spot is South American Grill. Our server Roberto Unostegui had wonderful suggestions and helped us with our selections. South American Grill was great! Food was delicious. Nancy (the lady that took care of our room) was very kind and gracious. The people at the front desk were always helpful answering questions. We had a great time thanks to the staff.

I used the The reservation line of The Villa group to book several vacations. I highly recommend having Javier Garcia book your trips through the phone line. He is super knowledgeable, patient and kind. I got a great deal. He answered all of my questions and I had tons! Thank you Javier!!

4 sisters and Eduardo = muy bien!

Last week my sisters and I went to Cabo San Lucas and stayed at the Villa del Arco for a week. The weather had been cold and rainy for weeks before we left on our adventure. We were ready for some sunshine and warmth. Cabo provided all that and Eduardo our pool server provided laughs and smiles for the entire stay. Eduardo was attentive and made sure we had smiles on our faces as he kept us well fed and hydrated. There was one day when we sat in a different location and we would call him over and order from him. I would ask why he wasn't bringing the food back from our orders and someone else was. He sheepishly pointed and mentioned that this other young man was actually our server. So while he was running point to keep us happy, the other young man was following up. Eduardo recommended a wonderful seafood place in town that his family eats at. It was a very tasty experience. He wrote out how to walk there from where the bus drops you off across from the downtown mall. Easy peasy! The resort was a delight. We were lucky to get a room that led to the pool. There is a local bus you can take to Walmart for a dollar to shop at. We used a taxi for $10 to haul back our breakfast items. The restaurants at the resort each had views of the pool or the beach. We enjoyed the Peruvian chicken that we ate there twice. The same restaurant serves grilled fish tacos that were excellent also. Thanks Eduardo for making this a memorable Sister's vaca! Toni Porter

WORST TRIP TO CABO YET!

We visit Cabo multiple times a year and never have had an issue. We ended up staying here for my friends 30th birthday cause the price point suited every one attending. HUGE MISTAKE!!! Upon our arrival they claimed they didn’t have our any more of our suite rooms left (keep in mind we had already prepaid for this type of room). But they didn’t tell us this, they instead took us to a double queen bed room, when we said this isn’t the room we paid for and we returned to the front desk they wanted to charge us more money for the room we already paid for!!!!! We had a long day of travel and we just accepted the king room they ended up giving us. Multiple times I tried to get the difference refunded back to my husbands credit card they even claimed they did and they NEVER DID!! At this point they have basically stolen from us. Not to mention almost all of the staff here is so rude and inattentive. My friends who’s birthday it was had a similar issue. They kept trying to double charge her for the all inclusive option despite her having multiple confirmation emails saying she had already done so. She was sharing her room with a friend who’s name was on the room and every time the friend went to sign it was an ordeal, the staff claiming she wasn’t on the room. Overall I’m horrified with this experience. We normally stay at the Resort at Pedregal and receive the best service, it absolutely more expensive but worth every penny. The only reason we stayed here was to accommodate everyone’s price point. Like I said NEVER AGAIN!!! I hope a manager sees this and reaches out because I have called and reached out so many times and have been lied too about our money being refunded.

Amazing Views!

We spent a long weekend here and it did not disappoint! We were greeted at check in with a glass of champagne which was wonderful after a long travel day. We immediately went to the pool and enjoyed their happy hour which was 2 for 1! :) Ate breakfast at the restaurant by the pool and it was wonderful. The french toast was outstanding! Beware! You will need to get up early to get a good chair at the pool each morning. The service at the pool was very good and they walk around at lunch time with menus and the food was surprisingly good. The views here are outstanding as you look out at the famous Cabo arches.
