This was our second or third stay at this Villa Del Palmer. For a hotel over 30 years old it's been very well maintained and updated. The landscaping is perfect. The rooms are nice; not super slick, but very adequate with good beds and really nice linens. Each has a terrace (ask for at least a partial view of the ocean). There are five restaurants, (Mexican, Italian, Seafood) all very good. Their beach is also very nice and has waiters to get you food and beverage. Each night there is a live show with dancers, musicians, etc, also very good. During the day they offer activities such as water aerobics, dance classes, ceramic painting. The pools are all very nice. It's a cashless hotel, so everything is charged to your room and the prices are very reasonable. We ate there dinner almost every night of our stay and quite often lunch as well. There's a Laundromat right next door where there was a lady who offered to wash, dry and fold our clothes (one good sized load), for about 50 pesos ($3.50). It was done to perfection. In talking with the other guests we spoke with many who have been coming to Villa Del Palmar for many years. The new Villa Del Palmar property in Nyarit, is very nice, but it's at least a 30 minutes drive to El Centro. This one is short taxi ride costing 60 pesos. Or the bus stops right outside. The local grocery store (Soriano) is a 2-3 block walk.
