My mother and step-father have a timeshare here at Villa del Arco, and they brought us (myself, the husband, and our 2 children) here for a holiday. The kids barely let us change them from their plane clothes, and they hopped right in the children's pool/fountains. The grounds are beautiful, lots of sprawling pools, one with a waterfall, and another with a giant pirate ship in the middle (which also doubles as a snack bar!). The rooms themselves are large, nicely appointed, with daily maid and turndown service, plus a little snack came every afternoon to our room; sometimes it was cake, others it was chocolate.
we went down to the sister resort, Villa del Palmar most nights for dinner and entertainment. My daughter loved participating in the show and constantly wanted to go back so she could dance on stage! The food was fairly decent, some weird stuff, but generally pretty good (especially dessert). The breakfasts in both resorts were pretty similar... i preferred the ambiance of the del Palmar buffet, and my husband del Arco.
We swam every single day, my 2 year old loved the water! There were lots of families on vacation, so my daughter (4) made lots of 'vacation friends' and had a blast swimming and playing with them.
Over in del Palmar, there was a kids program (but we didn't end up using) and a place where you could pick and paint your own pottery- the kids loved that! There is also a free trolley that takes you back and forth to the two sister resorts... my son being in a stroller, however, we usually found it easier to walk, which was fine b/c they are close enough.
Overall, it was a great family getaway!

I own a timeshare at Villa Del Arco. This was my third visit to the property. It is well maintained and the staff is great. You need to separate the resort from the time share sales that many (myself included) find objectionable. I bought my timeshare on the secondary market and saved a lot of money. If you sit through a "presentation" that is your fault!

We have gone to Villa Del Arco for a couple of years now since it opened and it is heaven on earth. The rooms are ALL ocean view. The staff is wonderful!
The restaurants on the property are fantastic - we were there for 7 nights this last trip and ate a different one each night - the brick oven pizza is wonderful and fresh! The taco bar at the pool is great - such a simple idea!
Would recommend to families and singles - we loved it!
The gym, tennis courts and spa are great!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool, closer to the beach

We have been going to VDA since 2006 with family; purchased our own two bedroom suite in 2012. It is absolutely gorgeous, always meticulously clean, and the staff is wonderful. The spa is one of the best we have been to in any country and the workout facility is great! The whole "timeshare" scene can be tedious but we have been thrilled with our decision to keep going back to VDA and to buy our own unit. Cabo in general seems to get better and better with time as well! From the marina, the restaurants, the shopping and the airport!

Villa Del Arco is an amazing property! Our family of seven (kids ages 9, 15, 20, 21, 22) LOVED everything about it! The food in every restaurant was best ever at an all-inclusive, our 3 bdrm/4bath penthouse had a three-sided wrap around porch with hot tub and grill---beautiful, the location is GREAT being close to town and the beach bars, the cocktails were no watery, the beach is rocky of course but you could walk for ever here and plenty of chairs and cabanas for guests on the private roped-off beach. The staff was top-notch and always aiming to please. The time-share tour was 1 1/2 hour long but we did get a good amount of spa credit for participating...almost bought in! : )

Room Tip: Pick an end unit for the best view!
