    Great check in experience

    It is my first time staying here and it won’t be my last! I was greeted as soon as I walked in by RaFael, Humberto, and Alejandro. They were very welcoming and helped me immediately with the check in process. They were very quick and easy to understand. I felt really taken care of by the team here. They answered all my questions before I even asked them! They were super friendly and seemed to genuinely enjoy helping others. I am so lucky to have had them help me throughout the whole process. It really put me to a good start at this hotel. I can tell I will really like it here, especially if all the staff are like them.

    Amazing Vacation

    We spent a week in this resort with friends and had the greatest time. We enjoyed the beautiful facilities, pool and beach and a the staff made sure we enjoyed our Stay. In particular I would like to mention Regee, who made sure that our beach lounges were ready for us and that we were comfortable and having a good time, Reinaldo who was catering us by the pool was always fun and went the extra mile to make sure our drinks and food were delivered on time. What an amazing service from these two guys! Nevertheless, all the staff was very helpful and attentive. Highly recommend this place to have a relaxing and fun time

    This trip was over price for what they offer..... They serve the same food everyday and not much from where to chose from; also there is only one place to have breakfast and 2 for dinner. The following employees made our stay more pleasant; Betty,Cecy,Cynthia,Jose,Danny,Mary,Vicente,and DJ May.

    Outstanding Value & Quality in Mexico

    Something is pretty special about a resort when the thing you are most looking forward to upon arrival is greeting your pool waiter, Jorge. He has taken care of us at Villa del Palmar Flamingoes in Nuevo Vallarta since 2005. He has watched my children grow up and charmed the entire family, including my sister and her husband who could not join us this year. Her one request, "Send her my picture with Jorge on the first day!" This resort feels like home with all of the staff treating us like family. Regee also took care of us at the pool on Jorge's one day off. We are amazed by how each waiter is so focused on our family and what we would like to enjoy the day. One issue I had on this trip was a sore shoulder that I had strained a month before arriving. No problem for Jonathan at the Spa. I simply showed him the exact location where I had pain that had kept me up for two nights straight and he went to work. I'm positive that you won't get a deep tissue massage like the one I got here in many spas. Jonathan understands body mechanics and pressure points to releave pain. He saved the vacation for me by restoring my ability to sleep pain-free. Just in case we were not thrilled with our stay, Leonel stopped by to speak to us as we sat by the pool. He and members of the various service departments were surveying for what suggestions we had to make the resort better. Ingenious to ask the guests for feedback during their stay. We were excited to hear during this conversation that our hotel is upgrading the internet so we can log in to our email, social streams, and internet sites to stay caught up while we vacation. Sarah in the lobby made sure I could log in since I'm not very technically minded. She was determined to help me reach the site I needed and stayed with me until I was up and running. If you visit this resort, all you have to do is approach any person in the lobby and they will make sure you get what you need to have a special vacation. If you want to make the most of your vacation budget, stay here.
