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
MARIANNE M.

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.

The people make the difference!

We always love our stay at the Arco! The people there have become our family. We have been visiting there for ten years and we are never disappointed. Paul Hernandez, the bell boy, is there to greet us when we arrived. He is always happy and helpful and he came by before we left to say good bye. Lety, at the pool, was our favorite server. She is helpful and a joy. Olivas at El Patron went above and beyond to take care of our family!

Time share a complete rip-off

Beware of the high pressure sales pitch and anything to do with The Villa Group and Universal Vacation Club. I paid $3000 for a trial that would give me 5 weeks over 3 years in suite. So far I have not been able to book a thing and can't seem to get any clear answers. Except that I have to return to the resort at some point to get my certificates. Which I did do but now I'm being told I must return again to get the actual certificates. Which seem to be worthless. I am awaiting a call back from a supervisor, but if my interactions to date have been any indication, I'm not going to hold my breath. Very disappointing.

Presentation by Ricky Leon at Villa del Arci

My husband and I attended presentation by Ricky Leon. He was so good, we end up buying a vacation package from Him for 50 years. Have not tried the package yet, because we just bought it. Hope our future vacations with Villa Group will be fantastic as our friend Ricky described. Ricky is really takes care of his customers, he babysat our daughter and took us to the airport. Thank you, Ricky for all your help. Olga, Dima and Alisa

Best Vacation Yet!

My family and I stayed at Villa del Arco for a week and had a blast! The resort offers plenty of options to entertain any age. When we were poolside, our family was served by Eduardo, who I wish I could have taken home with us because he treated us so well! Even days that we were not in his section he would check on us and ask how our day was going. It’s the kind servers like Eduardo that made our experience so enjoyable! I would definitely recommend this resort as a vacation spot!

Home away from home, but even better!

Great location on Medano Beach, leisurely 20 min walk to everything downtown and the Marina (or take a $9USD taxi). Also only a short 5 min drive to Walmart to pick up all your groceries. The 1 bd suite itself is fantastic, very large and clean and the kitchen is equipped with a stove, microwave/convection oven) and everything else you could need. Love the extra large balconies too! Great for having a meal or just lounging outside. The set-up really felt like your own home and honestly lacked for nothing. Didn’t eat the food at the resort so can’t comment on that ($105 US pp/ per day for all inclusive seemed quite steep, especially as more than 7 days of food and alcohol cost us $250 CAD at Walmart. Dinners out ran the two of us roughly $50 - $80 CAD and lunches $20-$30 CAD). Employees were all super friendly too. Paul, the bell boy was our absolute favourite. He always had recommendations and was super quick with grabbing and putting it it car back. $20USD massages on the beach were worth more than every penny, recommend Land & Sea. Tabasco’s on the beach was a great lunch spot too. Delicious fajitas and great service! Definitely recommend Villa Del Arco and are already looking forward to our next trip.
