    High Food prices and terrible exchange rate

    We are members and would never buy into this place again and let me explain. The resorts are very nice and most of the staff is awesome. We just visited Cabo and liked it . The beach was closed most of the time because of pretty big waves and even when it was open it is not serene water as they put it. I guess my biggest complaint is the value and prices of food. The breakfast buffet after our discount was 50 dollar per person. Eggs, Potatoes and other items were cold. The selection was poor. We usually go to Puerto Vallarta and their buffet is much better. I guess the thing that send me over the edge is when i just checked my Credit Card Statement and they gave us an exchange rate of 12%. We got up to 17% in town. So if that's how they treat their "Family " i hate to see how they treat their enemy. So for some of these reasons i would never recommend the Villa Group. We are stuck with it now and will make the best of it. Cornelia Mitchell

    Nayeli and Oscar were AWESOME

    All the staff were wonderful and attentive. Especially Nayeli and so was Oscar who took good care of us and all our drink and food orders. They were both so friendly and great happy attitudes. Our vacation was made more special in part because of them

    Great time at Villa del Arco

    We have been loving our visit at Villa del Arco so far! Cannot say enough wonderful things about the entertainment teal, especially Alana, Mauricio and Valeria! They have been with us day and night - water aerobics, towel folding, and the pop star show! So fun! Plus, the pool service staff, Alberto, Francisco and Emmanuel, have been incredibly attentive. Our kids are having the best time!

    Home away from home.

    We stay at VDA every year for a couple of weeks. The resort is in a perfect location and is well maintained. The beds are comfy, the linens and towels are wonderful. The view is exquisite. This year the pool temp was perfect as well. But what makes this place so special is the staff! When you pull up at the front entrance Mariano ( our favorite bellman) greets us by name and makes us feel like we’re home! The Elite Concierge staff are top notch! Fernanda, Nichole, Rubin and Francisco are just wow! Even before arrival I received an email checking on special requests and welcoming us. Fernanda has a special place in our hearts. She has been at the desk from the beginning and has never disappointed. Nichole also is warm, welcoming and efficient! Francisco and Rubin are new this year and a fantastic addition to the team! They all make us feel like part of the family. Carolina who is also part of the welcome committee is always pleasant. Her smile lights up the day! Maria at the lobby bar is definitely a bright spot. We love it when she is there. All of the pool waiters work tirelessly to be sure you have everything you want, but our favorite was Gilder. In addition to doing his job very well, he did it with the best sense of humor and joie de vivre! There was another pool waiter who had transferred from the VDP in PV who was amazing! I wish I could remember his name, but hopefully you will know from my description. The groundskeepers worked very hard and always had a kind smile and a Buenos Dias for you. The main girl at the towel stand was very pleasant. We didn’t see her every day because we saved our towels and reused them for several days, but she was wonderful! I can’t forget the housekeeping staff. Our room was always spotless and the housekeepers were so pleasant! Most evenings we ended our evening at the Patron bar. There were two favorites there who were so much fun! Jorge and Teo were perfect for their jobs. We loved coming in and seeing their welcoming grins. They always made our visit memorable. Having the stools back at the bar is fabulous! And the restaurant redesign is fantastic. We have been villa group members for a long time. The first time we came to Cabo was before Arco was built (we stayed at VDP Cabo and the other passengers on our bus commented about how nice it was to be home. I wondered why someone would want to come to the same place every year when there are so many places to see in the world. Well, I found out. Coming home to the most beautiful place surrounded by wonderful and caring friends is truly a gift like no other!

    Luis is the best!

    Luis at the sports bar was one of the best servers we have ever had. He was super personable and efficient. We would come again just to see him. The food as a whole at villa del palmar is very good and mostly everything is included in the all inclusive package.
