Excellent Property, Great Owners!
We love going to this property. The pool is phenomenal and the rooms are great with laundry to boot! The process with these owners has been fantastic and we have booked for our next years vacation with them already.
Family Vacation July 2013
Our family had a wonderful time at the resort. The accommodations were excellent, all personnel were courteous and helpful, no big push to buy, just an offer that came with free breakfast and vouchers for a tour. The beach was fabulous; everyone enjoyed the waves and the pool as well. We walked to the neighborhood grocery store and taxied back. We took local buses to both Puerto Vallarta and Bucerias. After artesania shopping and lunch on the beach in Bucerias we walked back along the shoreline enjoying the scenery. There were free shows to enjoy every evening and even fireworks on the beach for the 4th of July!
Wonderful Vacation Spot
This is a great place to bring a family. The condos are spacious, well-kept, and well-appointed. The pool is right below the room and you can spend the day there enjoying the ocean views and watching para-sailors land on the beach. The poolside service is second-to-none...ask for Alex or Augustino. At the beach, the water is warm, safe for swimming and the perfect height for body surfing. The food at the restaurants is really good, and you can also go to the local market and cook great fresh fish in the unit. You can walk down to the down, there are ziplines nearby and there is a great boat ride to Las Caracas.
Villa del Palmar (outside Puerto Vallarta)
I just returned from a one week vacation with my husband and 2 kids (ages 13 and 11). Great resort experience! Accommodations are very nice and spacious. 2 more than generous bedrooms, 3 full baths, large common space, lovely deck with table, chairs, and loungers. Kitchen was well equipped and we cooked several simple meals. Very nicely furnished and comfortable, bathrooms were great including soaking tub in master bdrm! The resort pool is gorgeous, grocery store and restaurants on site. We ate at one of the restaurants (good food, beautiful setting) and one outdoor dinner buffet (Easter dinner, the food was amazing). All the water at the resort is filtered so safe to drink (although we bought water because it tasted better). Resort staff were outstanding, especially at the front desk. Lovely beach. We enjoyed a combination of activities at the resort (the pool, swimming/boogy boarding in the ocean, pottery painting, volleyball) and excursions which we booked through the resort (we tried zip lining, fishing, swimming with dolphins). Easy 30 minute walk north along the beach to Bucerias which is a small Mexican town with beachside restaurants and a market filled with touristy items for sale (jewelry, blankets, pottery, etc.). Really worth the walk up the beach. We had a great meal at La Palapa & returned 2 days later with fish we caught. They prepared it 6 different ways for us, fantastic! Trip into PV is 20-30 minutes by cab or an hour on the bus. The bus (actually 2 buses, but easy to navigate) was quite fun and was mostly residents of PV as opposed to tourists, I rode it with my daughter and felt completely safe. Might recommend the bus into PV and cab home as the bus back stopped at every hotel/resort and took at lest 90 minutes.
The resort is based on a fractional ownership model (time share) so you will be offered a sales pitch which took a couple of hours the morning after we arrived. Not obligatory but if you go to the sales pitch you get 20% everything at the resort (the restaurants, grocery store, excursions booked through them) and a bottle of tequila. We were told that if we declined the time share offer (which we did) we would not be approached again and they were true to their word. And there was a blender in the kitchen so we were able to make good use of the tequila!
We had a great time at the the Flamingos. We were greeted with a cool wet cloth and a free drink the moment we stepped out of the cab and were treated great all week. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit that was very spacious, clean and the maid service was awesome. If you have never been to this area, the beach is awesome, it stretches for miles. Our 2 teenage kids were kept busy with many different activities. There was also free kayaks, body and paddle boards. We didn't eat much at the Flamingos so can't really comment on the food.
Kathy was very easy to deal with. She responded quickly to all my emails and was very helpful with all my questions. All expectations were met!
Other Activities: kayaking, parasailing, whale watching (seasonal), zip lines, boat tours, swimming with the dolphins, seal pool show, shopping, and more!
