We are pleased to announce the addition of the onsite Club Specialist position at our resorts in Cabo, Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit, and the Islands of Loreto!

Their focus is to make sure that you are satisfied with your vacation experience and to serve as a main point of contact for all members.

Iris’main goal is to ensure that you feel at home while you are on vacation. She is passionate about creating unforgettable experiences for all members and enjoys assisting members.
Iris has a background of working in Guest Service at hotels in Puerto Vallarta. She has been with Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta since 2016, where she started as a Front Desk Supervisor.

She started as a member of the Activities Team (you may recognize her from leading your favorite activity or starring in a resort show), and then took a Guest Service Manager role. Her passion for guest service paired with her entertainment experience makes her the perfect person for you to ask about what you should do while on vacation.

She started with the Villa Group Los Cabos in 2003 as a Night Phone Operator.

He started out as a Telephone Operator for the Dessert Spa and worked his way up to Front Desk Supervisor, followed by Elite Concierge Supervisor and Guest Service Manager positions. His knowledge in these departments and at our resorts make him an asset to our Club team.
His desk is in the Lobby of Villa del Arco.
In Andres’ spare time, he enjoys playing basketball at the local park, walking his dogs to a popular hill called “Cerro d la Z,” and partaking in water activities at Medano Beach. He likes to watch comedy movies with his family and finds this a great way to relax. Andres’ favorite food to eat is seafood, especially fresh sushi. He recommends that you try the tuna taquitos at El Patron Restaurant, which is a tasty recipe by our Head Chef.
