The upscale, family-friendly resort features 275 ocean view suites overlooking the bay and the Pacific beyond. Here, agents can enjoy a $79 USD nightly rate for a deluxe studio, with an all-inclusive option available for an additional $69 USD per person daily.
Offering 570 square feet of space, all deluxe studios feature a kitchenette, two queen-size beds, dining area, digital flat screen television, individually controlled center air conditioning, direct dial telephone, ceiling fan and outdoor balcony with patio furniture. For recreation, the property is highlighted by a lagoon-style, multi-level swimming pool, a new 17,000 sq. ft. European-style spa with state-of-the-art fitness center and daily activities held poolside or on the beach. Dining options include themed dinner shows, the Italian-Californian fusion specialties at Bellavista Restaurant & Bar, open-air Italian dining at La Trattoria and gourmet pizzas at the casual Pizza Bar.
Villa del Palmar Flamingos also features an International deli and the Palmita Market, stocked with most items offered at local supermarkets. For groups, the Flamingos Convention Center is equipped with the latest in sound and light technology.
"Villa del Palmar Flamingos is an ideal property for those who enjoy upscale touches and a less hurried atmosphere," explained Carlos Aquino, Director General for The Villa Group Resorts Puerto Vallarta. "The property has beautiful views of Banderas Bay, an upscale European-style spa and the high caliber of service that sets The Villa Group apart."
Situated in the Hotel District between Marina Vallarta and downtown Puerto Vallarta, Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta Beach Resort & Spa attracts both families and couples seeking a relaxed environment. This upscale beachfront resort offers 562 guest rooms, and one- and two-bedroom suites with furnished balconies.
Travel agents can take advantage of a $69 USD nightly rate for a junior suite available for single or double occupancy. An all-inclusive option is $50 USD additional per person daily. With 500 square feet of space, all junior suites provide a kitchenette, dining area, digital TV, central air conditioning, direct dial telephone and outdoor balcony or terrace with patio furniture.
"This is a wonderful beachfront property for those who enjoy more activity," remarked Aquino. "It's near all the action of Puerto Vallarta and offers a wide selection of on-site action that keeps guests entertained." At the centerpiece is a freeform activities pool containing a rock garden waterfall with waterslide. Skirting the active area are a 12-person spa tub, an oceanfront pool and two children's pools. An additional freeform adults pool sits adjacent to a second 12-person spa tub and picnic area with complimentary gas barbecue grills.
