Everything at the resort is pretty expensive, especially the restaurant. I almost never eat there. The spa has typical American prices for a wide range of treatments.
The beds are unbelievably hard. When you arrive, ask for a pad for the bed. Or two. I never have trouble sleeping, but these things are like stone.

This trip is in our top five destinations. It was our first time here, but we will be going back. The staff at the resort is incredible. Try speaking a little Spanish because it goes a long way. If you want to lay by the pools or go in the ocean, it is all just a step away. Make sure you go to Lovers Beach for an afternoon and just relax. You can pick up snorkeling equipment on the way there via a glass-bottom boat. Stroll the marina in the afternoon as the boats come in and have a drink by the water. In the evening, grab a meal at a local place and let the good times fill in around you.

There is a grocery store at the hotel; sometimes it was well-stocked, other times, it was not. There are two pools on the property, one was for a more mature crowd, the other had afternoon games and volleyball that was geared toward singles. The hot tub was big, but was very crowded with singles with a drink in hand. We hung out at the beach, which was very peaceful. At night, there is music, and, if your room faces the pool, you will hear the music - it's pretty loud.
The staff was very nice and upbeat. Of course, everyone wants you to buy a timeshare. We went on their presentation and decided not to buy. We own one timeshare and for us, one is enough. We didn't feel we were being pressured, but, word to the wise, if you feel you are not in the market for a timeshare, pass on the presentation.
The food at the hotel was good, not great. Stay away from the luncheon buffet - the food sits out in the sun too long. The only day I ate from the buffet was the day we were leaving, and I got sick on the way to the airport. Nightly, there are theme buffets - Mexican, Seafood, and more. For the money, you can do better at a restaurant.
VDP is a nice resort. We made friends on the beach, and we are going back for Christmas '04.

As far as accommodations are concerned, we stayed in a two-bedroom/two-bathroom unit that was well furnished and clean with a spectacular ocean and pool view. Although the units are a little old, they are well maintained and extremely spacious. The two-bedroom units can provide for six to eight people, BUT be cautious to the pull-out couch - the mattress was thin and very uncomfortable.
This is a resort that truly accommodates for the vacationer who is a true thrill seeker. Here you can schedule ATV bike rides, snorkeling trips, parasailing, and scuba diving excursions. Overall, Villa Del Palmar was a great place to stay at!
