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.

Repeat Villa del Arco customer, this time with a large group - Spring Break
Jeff B, Bellevue, Washington

Wonderful - Traveled with a large group over spring break (16 adults, 9 kids). We all did the all inclusive and we are so glad we did. We thought it would be difficult to get restaurant reservations for such a large group, but not once did we have a problem (the kids typically did their own thing, so it was usually just the adults). When the staff would notice that we were on the all inclusive program, they went out of their way to accommodate our large group. The food overall is very good (some restaurants were awesome, others were pretty good). We ate at all of the restaurants at least once and some several times. The staff was very nice and accommodating. One person that stood out above others was our waiter that took care of us on the beach, Eduardo. Always there when we needed him, fun to talk to, and very helpful if we needed anything. Eduardo was AWESOME! By the time we left, he was like family to us. When we come back I hope we get to see Eduardo.

Be careful what type of room you purchase!

Very disappointed in the fact that the room I thought I purchased was not that at all. When I arrived at check in I was told I had a studio which I thought I had a one bedroom ocean front view. I reserved the room and asked for a 1 bedroom suite. Not only was it not what I wanted but the front desk was very rude. Instead of asking if I wanted to change to a one bedroom they said that in Mexico a studio must be different because it is a one bedroom...... This was my second visit to Villa Del Arco this year and I will not be coming back because it is my opinion in the hotel business you should accommodate your hotel guest not belittle them. Be careful of what room you reserve. It's very misleading. Ask and ask again to make sure you are getting what you want.

Family fun once again....

Been here 3-4 times now, this one has to be one of the best. EVERYTHING was perfect except our first night we got the famous 'swamp' view. With a little tax fee, the next morning we were in building 1 with an excellent pool view :) Patron for breakfast was fabulous. Volleyball at 11am and 3 was always on the list. Fernando the activities host was excellente. From the comfyness of the king beds, ac cold in the rooms, great service....everything was fantastic. **Benito our waiter 2 mornings at Patron is eceptioanl.

Top notch customer service

My husband, sister and brother in law stayed for one week April 2018 and were thoroughly impressed with the grounds, amazing hard working staff and our room after the 1st night.... ( Moved from a room with a terrible view of "the lake " swamp). The service everywhere was top notch! I am arriving September 14th this year with two very special guests and hope to have a spectacular week as these two people deserve to be pampered. I'm hoping a manager reads this and reaches out to me to discuss some requests to make this trip one not to ever be forgotten!

Beautiful Resort with Awesome Service

We stayed at Villa Del Arco for the second time and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff was great, very polite, helpful and friendly! The pools had plenty chaise lounges with a very attentive wait staff. I would recommend the all inclusive option if you plan to spend all your time at the resort. The restaurants all had beautiful views and the food, particularly the seafood was 5 star! We particularly enjoyed or waiter Roberto Uriostagul, he was our waiter twice and offered amazing service! Christal was our concierge and answered all of our questions! We will be back!
