We have friends that own a timeshare in Villa del Mar in Puerto Vallarta. This resort is old but has amazing character and architecture. It is connected to Villa Del Palmar, Puerto Vallarta and being a timeshare owner has the flexibility to stay at any of the Villa Group resorts. If you wish to have a quiet stay with a laid back group with barbeque facilities readily available or go to play pool volleyball and join in entertaining activities you can just walk next door to participate. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. We have also made lifelong "Vacation friends" that come back to the resort around the same time of year. It is close to downtown Puerto Vallarta that you are free to walk, bus or taxi down to the malecon and area for a more than reasonable rates. There is a large selection of shopping, restaurants, sight-seeing and activities available. Being a timeshare owner also gives you discounts to many restaurants and activities. Villa Del Palmar Flamingos is located in Nuevo Vallarta, an aspiring location with many new amenities and beautiful accommodations and scenery. It is a 30 minute drive from Puerto Vallarta and many of the smaller quaint villages in the area to visit. The friendliness, helpfulness, cleanliness of all of these resorts are high above any other place we have ever visited or experienced. With the two bedroom timeshare we own for one winter week, we have the options to stay at any of these resorts. Being worth 2900 points, we can opt to stay longer in a one bedroom or even longer in a studio if desired for the same cost. If staying in Puerto Vallarta, the points used are fewer for the same size accommodation... again... allowing you to stay longer for the same cost. We would not be selling our timeshare if circumstances were different. We were unable to use our timeshare last year and am not foreseeing being able to use it in the next few years. We are saddened to have to sell but hoping some day we will be able to return.
