“Good for families”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Hubby and I stayed here last week. We had a wonderful room away from the pool, facing town. It had a full kitchen, and washer and dryer in the unit.

We tried all the restaurants on the resort: the pirate ship, the fancy restaurant and the sushi restaurant and were happy with all of the meals we had. The fancy restaurant recommends a reservation and we agree. We went at 8pm and waited at the bar about 45 minutes before being seated. It was worth the wait.

The market and deli located at Villa del Palmar are so convenient and we went there every day for groceries and lunch. We bought breakfast food to make in the room and then ate lunch at the deli. They had amazing looking desserts but we never tried them. They also offer pastries and ice cream.

The gym is awesome! Best gym of any of the hotels we've stayed in. Lots of cardio machines and plenty of free weights and weight towers. And the spa - oohlala! Awesome. If you book a massage at 8am, 1pm, or 7pm, they offer a good discount. The staff there is super nice and the massage was great. The spa area is really luxurious.

The pools are active and noisy throughout the day. We would go to the gym at 7:30am and 90% of the pool seats already had towels on them, saving them for later in the day. This is a phenomena I've only experienced in Cabo, jockeying for poolside lounge chairs. While it's mildly annoying, it didn't prevent us from enjoying our time here. The entire week we got poolside chairs once. Otherwise, we sat on the beach in the lounge chairs provided there. The poor waiters are spread so thin throughout the busy pool area that we never got drink service anywhere we sat.

This resort seems like a great choice for families. Kids were happily playing in the pool from sunup to sundown. The beach access right in front of the hotel offers swimming and water activities. The hotel location is great for popping into town or heading out for land activities like dune buggies and ATVs, etc. As a couple traveling without kids, we prefer a somewhat quieter environment, and would certainly like to be able to sit by the pool in our resort without having to get up at sunrise to reserve seats. But, we like the location, service and amenities enough to return.

We have been owners at Villa del Arco in Cabo since 2006. It is a beautiful resort and we love the location on Medano Beach which is the most swimmable beach in Cabo. The food at the resort is top notch as is the service. We also enjoy going in to Cabo San Lucas (a ten minute cab/water taxi ride) or a 20 minute walk on the beach. There are some terrific restaurants in town and on the marina. We also enjoy the excursions from the marina. Snorkeling trips on the Pez Gato and dinner cruises. I never tire of the spectacular view of the arc while relaxing by the pool or the beach at Villa del Arco!

We just got back last night from a wonderful trip at VDA. We have stayed at many timeshares because we are owners elsewhere but never received the treatment as we did at Villa Del Arco in Cabo San Lucus. 1st of all Gloria was so helpful with picking our room, perfect room for us. Tino cannot thank you enough for the numerous of times coming to you for help with our phones and Tablet. And cannot say enough to the waiters they are fantastic, especially thank you to Rogelio, Christian, Irinco. Paty and Gilda. The people at the spa are awesome, my husband said thank you to Roberto.

And then we have Misaol the head of customer service a special thank you from us to you and your staff for making our trip a memorable one. You see I lost my mother 2 1/2 months before we came and was very sad with grief but your staff made my birthday a celebration instead of a sad moment when we walked into our room and saw a cake made out of towels and balloons.

Every day had we a clean room thank you my maids great job!

Well needless to say we are owners and can't wait to come back again!!!

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor and absolutely loved it, with ocean and pool view.

We have owned a 2 bedroom penthouse timeshare facing the beautiful Arc and beach for 5 years now. All through the year , we look forward to our wonderful, peaceful getaway at this most welcoming resort. From the beautiful accommodations to the most professional and pleasant staff, we grow to enjoy it more each year. Swimming at the beach or the pool is most enjoyable. The premises inside and out are groomed and consistently sparkling clean. Restaurants are wonderful, but the expansive kitchen in our unit allows us to dine in if we choose. ( family of 5). If you need any repairs in your room, the service is expedient. The highlight for us is their amazing spa.. Excellent massages by professional masseuses. The spa itself is beautiful and is what we look forward to the most. The gym is important for my family and is also kept in great condition year after year. We couldn't be happier with our investment - you know it's a wonderful place when your 3 children want to continue vacationing with you yearly!! (Ages19-28). Oh - and most significant - our anniversary falls during our fixed week and the housekeeping staff always leaves our room with beautiful towel and rose petal designs! Just another lovely additional touch to make our week even more special. Lastly, much of the staff has been there since we have purchased which says something about the management! Looking forward to next year!

I have been an owner at Villa del Arco in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico since 2006. I bought during pre construction. It is the only place I ever vacation or will vacation in the future.I think about going there all year long.. I don't need I.I. or RCI. That's how breathtaking it is. It is in a prime location on Medano Beach(the ONLY swimmable beach) within walking distance to the Marina and the Mall. The Sea of Cortez is gorgeous. It is pristine, the Villa del Arco is ALWAYS immaculate. The reason it runs so well is it has wonderful employees who I feel deserve recognition for the EXCELLENT work that they do. I decided that I wanted to do something about this. Here are the names of some of the many employees who I feel deserve to be recognized for their OUTSTANDING work.

My family and I had a great time in Cabo at the Villa del Arco. Staff were so friendly and always helpful! Very clean and great for kids of all ages. Views from our room were absolutely amazing. Love the fact that the hotel is just a very SHORT cab ride to downtown Cabo, so everyone can enjoy the best of all worlds. I will be back again next year and can't wait!
