Our Vacation to Mexico
This was my 9th trip to Mexico and my 3rd stay at Villa del Palmar. As usual, the hotel staff sits you down when you first arrive and tries to talk you into going to a timeshare presentation. They offer perks if you do go, but we had no intention of spending our precious vacation time sitting through a presentation. Our concierge was very polite and not pushy so after we declined, they left us alone after that. The hotel is older but well kept and the grounds and pools are beautiful. The rooms are simple but clean, have nice balconies and kitchenettes, and our bed was very comfortable. The first night they put us in a room facing the street instead of the pool like we were supposed to have, but we complained about it so they moved us to a better room the next day. Also the first room only had two full-size beds (not queen) so we requested a king size which we got. We were in the main lobby building which was noisy at times. This hotel is in a good location, there is a full-size supermarket (the Soriana) within a couple of blocks and a smaller mini-mart you can easily walk to. We bought groceries to make breakfasts and lunches to save on costs. You can catch the bus just outside the hotel to go downtown or across the street to go to the Marina, which saved cab fare. The buses run until 11 pm. My only real complaint was not about the hotel but about the constant hassle you get everywhere you go to buy something. We also got bitten by sand fleas on the beach. Take bug spray!
