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
DANIEL D.
Aug 26 2013
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.

Amazing Property and Service!

During a boy's getaway we discovered Villa Del Arco. It's quiet enough to quickly relax and unwind, yet there are plenty of great bars and restaurants within the property for a fix of night life. We found ourselves spending a lot of time at the pool, which is huge and heated to a temperature that is invitingly warm. Carlos, who works at the Buccaneer Bar (Pirate Ship) and Poolside Restaurant, was incredibly friendly and mixed up some of the most delightful and tastiest cocktails we've ever had. We're already talking about booking next year's vacation at Villa Del Arco. What a great experience!

We stayed at the Villa Del Arco from 1/16/18 - 1/27/18. Upon arriving I realized that one of my bags had been left in the shuttle. The bell boy, Paul Hernandez, was incredibly professional and took control of the situation. He called the shuttle company immediately and assured me the bag would be found. Sure enough, within about 30 minutes the shuttle returned with my bag. What a great employee Paul is! He takes customer service to a very high level.

Our favorite home-away-from-home!

Out of 25 weeks in Mexico since 2005, 19 of those weeks have been in Cabo and the last 15 at Villa del Arco: to say it's our favorite place for R & R is an understatement! Our kids are returning next month, and we have another reservation for the fall! While we love many things about the resort, it's the wonderful staff that keeps us coming back. We are greeted by the bellmen, usually Mariano or Jose, with "welcome home," and then our concierge, Vicky, greets us with a hug and champagne while she and her staff, Erika and Fernanda, help us check in! We appreciate the smallness of the resort (about 280 units, I think)--that it doesn't feel crowded--and its proximity to downtown. Often, we walk to favorite downtown family-owned restaurants, the malls, and/or the marina, but also taxis are inexpensive--even to nearby Wal Mart and La Europa liquor store. My husband runs every other morning to the marina: we feel safer in Cabo than back home! Being on Medano Beach and having a view of famous Lands End is a plus, as well as all the many restaurants along the beach. The Desert Spa has a great front staff that is always welcoming whether we are going to the fitness center or the spa. Blanca, Indira, and Christian are always smiling and helpful--making us feel "at home," too. The spa offers many types of massages and facials with a great wet area to enjoy pre- and post- treatment. Jasmin and Mathilde do great "deep tissue" massages! The fitness center is our favorite anywhere we've been: it's always clean, has a variety of equipment, is spacious, and isn't crowded except early morning. The bathrooms and showers are clean and roomy. Personal training classes are offered. We appreciate the flavored water, towels, and icy wash cloths after our workouts! There are chairs on the beach as well as around the pool, and the wait staff (Edwardo and Javier are two of our favorites) serve food and beverages at both. Jorge does a great job as pool concierge. There is a cool Buccaneer Pirate Ship restaurant/bar in one of the pools, as well as a lunch taco bar poolside. Two other restaurants, El Patron and Neptune, are onsite: the view from the balconies of both are awesome! We enjoy the more private hot tubs on the backside of building 3 in the evenings. Housekeeping does a great job in the units! Hilda took wonderful care of us this year and last year! It's clean and smells fresh when she leaves! We appreciate the turn-down service and chocolates left on our pillows. There are more opulent resorts, but VDA is more "our style"--not stuffy or too formal and so friendly! It's also a slower, calmer pace than the "party" resorts, and we really appreciate that. We can't wait until our next visit to see our VDA family again!

Beautiful Property Antonio and Alejandra were superb staff members!

We visited Cabo and Arco April 2017, and are getting ready to go again. I wanted to write how amazing this property is. We loved our stay and everything about it. From the pools, to the restaurants, and the lovely staff. I travel with my 2 kiddos and friends every year, and Antonio and Alejandra make it the ebest experience ever. They were great to accommodate our room request and help with everything we needed. It was my daughters 5th birthday and they arranged for door decorations and dessert delivered to the room! The entertainment staff on the beach were amazing too ( I forget his name) that leads the kayak tours and such. But he was awesome! I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay or better people. We will be back every year! Thanks Arco for making our vacation a dream come true!!- Angie Potter Baumann

Great service

Meni at the front desk and Lety at poolside were great! As usual (been going here for 12 years) the resort is outstanding if you like small, quiet and great service within walking distance to town this is the place. Love the updates to the sixth floor, too.
