Spent a week at VDP the first week in January. I can not comment on the food as we opted to pass on the all inclusive package and spent the week sampling food from different restaurants, taco stands and beach vendors. This was the way to go for us. We absolutely loved getting off the resort everyday. A tour that we really enjoyed was " Vallarta Eats". They introduce you to street food on a walking tour.
As someone who has beaten the all inclusive thing to death, I must say this place is fine. The location is fantastic and the beach and resort are very nice. I will agree with the majority that the rooms are dated. Certainly was not a deal breaker for us. The bar staff were excellent and out of all the resorts I have been to (20+), this was probably the cleanest resort. The place was spotless!! In summary you will get a clean room, great location with all amenties within walking distance, and a great beach. The only negative is you will be directed to a rep once you check in that is pretty insistant that you attend a time share pitch. That being said, I would go back and would stay at the same resort if the price was right.
