One of the many dead King Roaches. We left the cabinet door propped open with a trash bucket for three mornings before she was removed. Her egg sack was right beside her.

We stayed at the Raintree for one week. there werent many people there so it was very quiet. Located on the Marina, we were able to view boats for tours and fishing to come and go, so that was wonderful.
Their sister resort Club REgina was across the road.

We stayed at the Nautilus for a week in 2002, when it was still owned by the Omega chain. Here's the summary of events in what we prefer to call a "rustic" camping trip....

The road leading up to the hotel boasts views of beautiful resorts, both on the beachfront (south side of the road) and the marina (north side of the road), however as you get towards the end of the road, and the magnificent resorts fade away, you are welcomed by the sights of a field full of half-stripped cars, and the framework for a half-built hotel overgrown by vegetation. Between these two properties is the quaint little 90-room Nautilus, sporting more aged stucco on the ground than still on the building itself. Greeting us in the small and simple lobby was a half-asleep receptionist who I swear was there from 3am to midnight everyday during our stay. We switched rooms several times before actually being lucky enough to find one that had all of the working ammenities (tv that wasn't missing, a fridge {not a quiet one, but nonetheless A fridge}, and a pull-out sofa that appeared to still have half its parts present.

Deciding to explore the facilities, we went to tour the pool and restauraunts, and were suprised to find that the second restauraunt on the man-made beach(which was advertised on the Omega website) was closed. Over the next couple of days, we began to name the bees and other bugs that came free in our drinks from the bar, and became accustomed to chicken for all three meals of the day.

The staff, on the other hand, were very friendly (and to those others who have written reviews, we remember the waiter/bartender German as well, although he may have been on building maintenance during our stay if I recall correctly). During the first few days, the waiters were wearing jeans and regular clothing, however near the end of the week they began to wear uniforms and more formal clothing. The "recreation director" showed up when he felt like it, and when he was there and wasn't hung over, the only thing he wanted to direct was his attention to the chicas'.

I became another victim to the infamous pull-out sofa one night, as it was missing half of it's springs, and the remaining ones were rusted (they went good with the rustic look of things), but obviously the sofa was supposed to have all the springs for a reason and I fell through. It took several days to get that fixed, and in the end they just took another sofa from the room next door and swapped them. They decided one day to repaint the depth numbers around the pool, but neglected to mention it to any of the guests, so my nice black Nike swimming trunks now sport "5'" on the rear (that was one of the more humorous moments of the vacation, and the staff did lend me a pair of "Nautilus" swimming trunks while they cleaned mine).

After a week though, we finally decided to move to a different hotel (the Melia across the street), and the change was the equivalent of a Motel 6 to a Hilton (understatement of the year). We certainly weren't expecting a luxury hotel, we just wanted a place to stay that was safe and clean (and had all of the springs left in the hidabed). This place has a LOT of potential, and with a coat of paint, some new furnishings, and more organization, it could be a beautiful place to stay.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our experience with this hotel, or Puerto Vallarta.

Well we just returned from Puerto Vallarta March 2002. We arrived and changed rooms three times due to holes in the walls, missing TV, and a nonworking toilet. It is really unfortunate as the staff are a hoot, the grounds are quaint, and you have an unbelievable view of the Marina - There is no beach unless you walk about 3 blocks away. The beach through the Mayan Palace is not great. I recommend hopping a bus and heading way north or way south. Anyways the Hotel - Don't eat the lettuce my husband ended up in the hospital for 2 days due to a parasite that we think may have come from the lettuce. If Omega Resorts would put a little money to repairs and upgrades and more variety in the buffet meals this could be a wonderful vacation spot. I think in future we will stay at the southern end of Puerto Vallarta. The beaches are closer and the hotels are nicer.

We come here every year for 6 weeks and love it here. Staff is friendly and very courteous and speak good English. Our one bedroom suite is perfect and the beds and pillows are good. The food is excellent and there is lots to chose from.
It is located in a great location and close to shopping and the male on about a 10 minute taxi ride.
Our maid Paula that omes every night to turn down the bed and leaves cookies and chocolate. She is very pleasant and friendly.
The waiters are awesome. Joaquin, Daniel, Ernesto, Lorenzo, Celestino and Hugo. There are many others in lauding maids etc that are great.
Gemma and Kayori are very helpful in elite office.
Great place to stay.

This resort awesome. The grounds are beautiful and kept up very well. The beach is perfect and being cleaned everyday. The employees are like family. The front desk people are all kind and accommodating. Brian (bellman) and others greet you with a smile and a hug. Alway willing to help with anything you might need. Around the pool are…Gaspar, Marco, Rodrigo,Carlos,Jesus, these men work hard with a smile and willingness to make your time at the pool or beach great. I appreciate these men so much. As well as the pool cleaners as they’ve got a big job everyday. The waiters are great, always there to take an order… but not annoying you if you are just relaxing. They are helpful and you can tell they enjoy their job. Joaquin and Jared, are always willing to go beyond serving to moving chairs around to accommodate groups. Thank You Villa Del Palmar for another wonderful vacation. See you next year. Hilda and Fred

As you approach the culdesac at the end of the marina road, the cheery resort atmosphere of Puerto Vallarta makes a dramatic shift toward a more abandonded demolition/war zone motif. The Howard Johnson Nautilus hotel may at first glance appear to be a ray of hope set at the end of this road, but that would be an illusion. At least it was for us. Our room was a continuation of the 'delapitation' theme.
First, I want to make it clear that my family did not have unrealistic expectations. We were looking for a one night stay to sync up our resort stay with the flight arrangements we had made. We were not expecting a five star resort, just a place to pass the night until our morning flight. We were expecting, however, a clean and safe place to stay that single night and selected the HJ primarily due to their web site. I would have been happy with a Motel 6. The Howard Johnson Nautilus isn't fit to carry Super 8's sandals.
It may have been because we were staying just the one night, but the room they put us in was inexcusable. The website shows lovely photos of kitchenettes and attractive accomodations. Maybe such a room does exist there. It was certainly not what we were offered. It being New Year's Eve, we were stuck. There simply was no other room at the inn.
There were empty cupboards with no appliances- no refrigerator, no microwave, not a single teaspoon in the silverware drawer. The gaping blank spot in the entertainment center suggested that there once was a television set, but that was not an issue as there wasn't anywhere to sit anyhow. Someone had taken the mattress out of the hide-a-bed and stuffed the back cushions down into the empty space to make it look at first glance like it was still intact. It was only when I sat down and kept on going that I realized my mistake.
The actual bedroom was no better. At checkin, the bedside alarm clock read 6:76. Maybe it wasn't quite right, but it was still in better shape than the room safe, which had been gutted for parts and swung lazily open with no lock left to keep it closed. I think this may have been a decorating theme as half of the room's door latch had also been removed to parts unknown.
We nicknamed the two towels Itchy & Scratchy. They must have been selected just for this room to complement the ragged blankets on the bed. I honestly believe they cut a king-size set of bedding in half to cover the two double beds and just let everything fray.
Every time we tried to use something in the room, we discovered another problem. When we saw the first cockroach, the nightmare was complete. Stay away from this place, please. Sleep at the airport or in a tent on the beach first. Money spent here is money wasted.
When the morining came and the alarm clock told us it was d:PL, I was never so glad to check out of a hotel and be headed home.
I promise you, every word of this is true without an ounce of exaggeration. I shudder to think what our vacation might have been like had we selected this hotel for our entire stay. One awful night was one night too long. Don't make the same mistake.

OK, where do I start?

First thing, this Hotel IS ON A MARINA, in one day I counted 185 boats go by, from a 6ft dingy with 3 Mexicans in it too a 200ft pleasure boat with 75 people onboard.
I am from the Maritimes so I enjoyed watching them go in and out, but the Restrant is open so when you are eating you can smell the gas and diesel fumes from the boats, and SEA GULLS steal your food from your plate, so do not turn around because your food will be gone!!!!!! Also watch out for the birds over your head on the beams, and the bird DROPPINGS fall in your food.

The Hotel
It is fair, the rooms are big and clean, our room had no water pressure, and it took 10 minutes for HOT water in the shower, other people said they had hot water, so maybe it was just our room.

Pool
They have 3 pools, one big and long for laps, one for kids, and one for scuba lessons, and all 3 are very clean.

Food
Well it was the same everyday!!! They did not change one thing in the week, and it was bad, no taste what so ever, they had 1 tray of RICE, 1 tray of Vegetables, 1 tray of Chicken, 1 tray of Noodles, and of course they had Hamburgers. The salad bar was fair, so if you are a vegetarian, you are OK.
The web site says you can order off the menu if the buffet does not suite you, well we asked but there was no MENU to order from.

Staff
Not many, but the ones that did work, did a good job, as for the Bartender that everybody talks about, (German-Herman) well he must have been off the week we stayed there?

Location
The Hotel is at the end of a one way dead end street??? You figure this one out.
Cabs are cheap $5.00 will get you anywhere.
There is no beach unless you walk about 3 blocks away, and it is not clean.
Activities do not exists

Just returned from this dump of a hotel This was my fourth trip to Mexico, and yes this time the price came into effect. Long story short, you get what you pay for,however this resort should not exist. To any travellers out there please save a little more money and book a better place unless you like a 1 STAR AT MOST. I could go on and on about it but it still turns my guts.

Don't stay here unless you bring your own food. The buffet is infested with flies and smells like rancid food, the birds STEAL your food right off your plate(cause the eating area is wide open no walls) By the third day we only ate boiled eggs with dry toast at breakfast and then went and had coffee at the bar area. We then bought popcorn at the hotel store to eat for lunch and for dinner we walked down town and eat mexican food from street vendors. The basement area smells like sewer. Had we known that it was possible to change hotels we would have been out of there on the second day.

Funny how many bad reviews have been given about this place and only certain ones have been posted.
Here goes another try.
Don't go here. It was the worst vacation I have ever been to. The service was the worse, the food was like eating something you see in the dumps, (you dont know what it is) and the locals from Mexico City take over the place with all their kids. The parents are not much better. Very rude and act as ifyou don't belong if your not one of them. Children banging on walls 1:00 in the morning along with all the yelling down the halls.
The employees that work there have even told us that the locals that come there on the weekend from the country side do not respect the rules.
I hated the food and couldnt wait to taste a BIG MAC. I hate fast food but beleive me when I tell you that after eating what they served, you would think that a BIG MAC was the best thing you have ever eaten.
This is not a 3 star resort by any means. Your local Motel 6 will seem like a five-star hotel after staying here.The food, if you like flys and bees mixed in with bird DROPPINGS then enjoy because you will surely taste one or the other. If you had potatoes in the evening, you will definetley have hash browns in the morning. (the same potatoes) and what you have for lunch, will be mixed in some form for dinner. The locals: Thurs through Sun you better expect the locals from Mexico City to come in the hundreds and take over everything. Especially the pool. (Blue in the morning and yellow by evening) They will not leave the pool from morning till closing and you will not have a chance to swim with a hundred kids just peeing everywhere. I even saw a mother rinse her babys diapers in the pool. I can go on and on about this joke of a place.

We went to PV for one week and stayed in this dump hole for one day! The only good thing I can say about the hotel is the room was big. But… it was dirty, smelled funny, the beds were uncomfortable, the tiny couch was broken, the TV was missing in the bedroom, the microwave was missing in the kitchenette, there were wires sticking out of several outlets, the shower had yellow water, the tiny balcony had cigarette butts all over, the pool was dirty, the lobby was awful, the restaurant was horrible, no one to help with luggage, the front desk person tired to rip my husband off because he did not speak Spanish and changed his attitude when I spoke to him in Spanish. It was a nightmare! The hotel is at the end of the marina and all you see on your way there are beautiful fancy hotels and then they drop you off in a dump. Horrible!

I'm not sure which beach people are specifically writing about in their posts however there is a beach at Club Regina Puerto Vallarta, which is across the street from Villa Vera.

Answer from Raintree M

No, Villa Vera no lo maneja. Club Regina, el hotel adyacente al cual tienen acceso todos los huéspedes de Villa Vera, si tiene un programa todo incluido que podrá comprar una vez que esté en el hotel (no al momento de hacer la reserva).
