  1. Loved our stay but both had diarrhea when we got back. Only ate and drank at the resort except for SW airlines drinks when we left.
    If may be awhile before I can get the husband to come back. I hope no one else got sick.

    1. Hi Viola,

      Thank you for commenting. I am sorry to hear of your experiences and thank you for bringing them to our attention. I have forwarded your comments to the resort so that we can look into this. Please check your email for a response from our Club Director within the next week.

      Kind Regards,
      Brittany Blanscet

  2. I wish you offered an all inclusive without the alcohol for less money. We come every year, usually to Puerto Vallarta, Flamingos but we do not drink alcohol.

    1. Hi Pamela,

      Thank you for commenting and your suggestion regarding an all-inclusive non-alcoholic meal plan. There have been tests done with a non-alcoholic meal plan, but with very little success. We will keep your suggestion in mind for the future in case more members desire this option.

      Best Regards,

  3. We celebrated my husband’s birthday last week at Villa del Palmar/Cabo Such a wonderful time, almost like a second honeymoon! Our room was comfortable and service was impeccable. If you haven’t previously ordered VDP’s Signature Service, I would encourage members to request this for your next trip, so worth it!

    Trying to decide when to return next year, it won’t be soon enough.

    1. Hi Victoria,

  5. Do you have a price list for the spa at Villa del Palmar? I looked online but cannot find it anywhere. & do you have any of the restaurant menus online? I would like to get an idea of the food prices at the resort.

    Thanks in advance.


  6. In mid May we stayed a week at Villa Del Palmar and a week at Villa Del Arco. Everything was great. I have to give a big shout out to our housekeeper Carmalita at Del Arco. She was so cheerful and thorough. She sang softly while cleaning our unit. It was the first time in several years that we actually received all of our replacement towels and wash cloths at the time of cleaning. OLE to Carmalita!!!

    We loved visiting Cabo and increased our timeshare last year. We’re excited to come back next year. When we were there middle of last year, we were told that there is a new resort opening in Cabo. Is there any updates on this? What about other new resorts opening up? Thank you!

      We will make an announcement on the blog and through an eblast once we know these dates.
