The Villa Group's Vast Holdings

August 27, 2007 By: Judy Bernhardt Travel Agent

Company targets families and couples in top Mexican markets

The Villa Group, one of Mexico's leading privately owned hotel, resort and real estate development companies, has three properties in Los Cabos and three in Puerto Vallarta/Nuevo Vallarta. Each targets a different demographic. A Junior Suite at the Villa del Palmar in Cabo San Lucas

Puerto Vallarta/Nueva Vallarta

In Puerto Vallarta/Nueva Vallarta, the three properties are
Villa del Palmar Flamingos, Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta and the Villa la Estancia.

Villa del Palmar
Puerto Vallarta
is the largest of the three properties, with 562 guest
rooms. This is also the oldest property in the group, built 23 years ago.
Targeting mostly families and those looking for a more affordable stay, the
resort has a Spanish colonial courtyard that opens to expansive grounds with
flowering gardens, lawns and towering palm trees. Ten hacienda-style buildings
with terra-cotta-tile roofs range from four to eight stories. At the center of
the resort is a large swimming pool containing a rock garden and waterslide.

Families will find the two-bedroom suites spacious and the
in-room washer and dryer handy. Be sure to request a room facing the ocean. All
rooms have kitchens (each with a stove, microwave and sink), so clients can
prepare meals in the room.

The real draw of this property is its proximity to Puerto Vallarta, where
shopping, restaurants and other draws are ample. For recreation, guests can
enjoy the oceanfront massage service, fitness center, three tennis courts, a
Kids Club and a variety of pool and beach activities.

Villa del Palmar
is a quieter, relaxed resort targeting couples, honeymooners and
small families. This resort is more upscale than Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta, but more
affordable than La Estancia. All 275 rooms overlook the ocean. This new hotel
is situated about 20 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta
in Vallarta Nayarit on the shores of Banderas Bay.

This upscale property targets those travelers who want to be
away from the hustle and bustle of Puerto
and to spend their stay in a more relaxed,
quiet atmosphere.

The 17,000-square-foot Flamingos spa makes this resort stand
out. In addition to an array of massages, facials, exfoliations and wraps, each
treatment is preceded by an hour spent in the relaxation area. This area
consists of a large Jacuzzi, plunge pool, steam room, sauna, rainforest shower
and tranquility area. The spa is beautifully designed with a colonial Mexican
theme and spa aficionados will not be disappointed.

Junior suites have kitchenettes, while the one-, two-, and
three-bedroom suites all feature a whirlpool tub in the master bathroom, a
separate dining area, complete kitchen and private oceanview balcony or
ground-floor terrace. Fast

Villa La Estancia,
the most luxurious of the three properties, is currently being built and will
open in installments throughout 2007 and 2008. This resort targets the
high-end, discerning traveler. Beautifully designed arched wrought-iron gates
are at the entrance of each room and the interior design feels like a hacienda
with marble floors and warm muted tones on the walls and fabric, and kitchens
with granite countertops and beautiful appliances.

All balconies overlook the water.

Cabo San Lucas

In Cabo San Lucas, the three properties are the Villa del
Palmar Beach Resort and Spa, the Villa la Estancia Cabo San Lucas and the Villa
del Arco Beach Resort and Spa. Situated on the tip of Baja Peninsula where the Sea of Cortez
meets the Pacific Ocean, these three
properties boast amazing views of El Arco, the famous arch where the two bodies
of water meet.

With 463 suites, Villa
del Palmar
is the largest property; its one-, two- and three-bedroom suites
each have a private balcony with garden or ocean views.

Junior suites contain a kitchenette, while larger suites are
great for families as they feature a fully furnished kitchen with full-size
refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, cookware and utensils.

This is a very family-friendly hotel and kids can be seen
enjoying the "Kids in Paradise"
activities club, as well as the family pool complete with a whale slide.

Complimentary activities include beach and water volleyball,
pool games, water aerobics, basketball, bingo, shuffleboard, Spanish lessons
and Mexican salsa- and guacamole-making sessions.

Villa la Estancia Los
, the most high-end property of the three, is beautifully designed in
a Spanish colonial and hacienda style and is nestled away in a private gated
enclave adjacent to the Villa del Arco and Villa del Palmar.

Villa la Estancia Los Cabos is a favorite for vacationers
seeking an adults-only environment. Each of its 156 spacious suites (one-, two-
and three-bedroom units) are decorated with marble floors, granite countertops,
whirlpool tub, walk-in shower and spacious balconies. All suites come with a complete
kitchen. Book the Penthouse suite for your honeymooning clients.

The Villa del Arco
Beach Resort and Spa
offers unobstructed views of El Arco.

This upscale family-friendly property has 217 deluxe suites
with one, two or three bedrooms.

La Perla restaurant boasts some of the best views of El Arco
to be found; the food features a great mix of Mexican dishes, fresh seafood and
succulent steaks.
