Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta Renovation Update

Earlier this year, announcements were made regarding the upcoming reconstruction project for Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta. Currently, the project is in the planning and permitting phase. We will provide regular updates to all members regarding any progress made. The updated resort-wide renovation is expected to commence in Quarter 2, 2024. Stay tuned for more updates.

In the meantime, we invite you to come experience Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta as you know it!

Resort Overview  

Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa Puerto Vallarta has to be one of the most heartwarming resorts on the Pacific Ocean. Located in the middle of the Hotel Zone, you’ll find everything that Puerto Vallarta has to offer right at your doorstep. 

Located beachfront, Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta boasts spacious suites, gourmet dining, a spa, three pools, nightly entertainment, and is within close proximity to many attractions.  

A journey of flavors is available at the on-site restaurants El Patron, Yashinoki, Seafood Market, and La Trattoria. You can enjoy Japanese specialties paired with the finest wine, one-of-a-kind seafood dishes, authentic Italian cuisine in an ultra-luxurious ambiance, and traditional Mexican fare. La Cantina Sports Bar, La Creperie, and Palmita Market & Deli are perfect for delectable lunches, family fun, or if you’re ready to party.

The fully-equipped fitness center with sauna and jacuzzi, the outdoor pickleball courts, the ping-pong table, and outdoor pools provide plenty of places for everyone to burn off some calories. Don’t miss our exclusive members-only pickleball tournament held weekly, providing an opportunity to connect with fellow members and stay active. Please consult your Member Experience Creator upon arrival for the tournament schedule. 

The resort has a plethora of entertaining activities such as beach volleyball, aqua fitness, Spanish classes, dance lessons, bingo, donkey races, cooking classes, and arts and crafts, as well as access to the main beach with its lively theme nights such as Broadway Night, Beach Party, and Circus Night. There is also a Kids’ Club so your little ones can partake in fun activities throughout the day.

Under lit palms and the night sky, Villa Del Palmar Puerto Vallarta is the perfect place to wind down in the evening, with tropical gardens that run throughout, flowing fountains in the entrance, and impressive architecture. You will want to head to the front of the resort to relax every evening at sunset. 

Nearby, the Malecón “Boardwalk” is lined with shops, art sculptures, restaurants, and bars, and is just a 10-minute (3-mile) taxi ride from the resort. You can visit the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, an important example of colonial architecture, or explore the many art galleries in the area. The Romantic Zone is another popular area teeming with lively bars, restaurants, and clubs that provide a diverse range of music, food, and entertainment and is just a 15-minute taxi ride (4.5 miles) from the resort.

Other options include visiting the nearby marina, or taking a day trip to visit beach villages such as Sayulita, San Pancho, Bucerias, or Mismaloya.

  3. I’ve heard that some of the restaurants are currently closed due to the planned renovation and that currently there is no breakfast buffet. Can you verify please.

    1. Hi Eduardo,

      Thank you for reading our blog and submitting your question. We have checked with the onsite resort management and there currently is an a-la-carte breakfast buffet there. There will always be an option for breakfast. Note: restaurants onsite are on a rotating schedule. Hope this helps.

      1. As the Villa Del Mar is to be knocked down in quarter 2 2024 will the gym and pickleball courts be removed at the same time. These are an important part of our vacation at VDP

  5. I understand the renovation is going to transform the PV VDP to a a 5 Star Diamond Resort. How is that going to affect our Gold Membership? Will you be buying out contracts or will our membership be grandfathered in?

    1. Hi Stephen,

      Thank you for reading our blog and submitting your inquiry. At this moment, there are no changes with respect to resort usage rights. Rest assured that if any changes occur, the Club will promptly communicate these updates to all members through a memo.

  6. We purchased a gold membership in 2003 in Villa Del Palmar Flamingoes when it was being built and have enjoyed many years of visits. This year we decided to upgrade to the Preferred Access membership due to the new construction planned. In the meantime we are not sure what the change in benefits will be and how does it compare with the Elite membership. I do know that we are now on a point system but could you remind us as to what other changes we get. Our old minds are not clear as they used to be.Thanks

    1. Hello Derek and Lene,

      Thank you for reading our blog and submitting your inquiry. Please be advised that I have forwarded your concerns to our Member Services team, and they will be reaching out to assist you.
