The road to here…
So how did it all start, we hear you ask?

Well, it began in Puerto Vallarta in the 1980’s when Tafer Hotels & Resort’s owner and his partners at the Villa Group recognized the potential of the city to be a timeshare hotspot and invested in the Villa del Mar resort. The Villa del Mar was an unmitigated success, and soon the very first Villa del Palmar resort was developed right in the heart of Puerto Vallarta complete with spa. The expansion of the company might seem to be unusual in that development in Nuevo Vallarta did not come until later, but at this time tafer and the Villa Group were ahead of the curve; they opened the Villa La Estancia and Villa del Arco resorts in Cabo san Lucas.

When development in Nuevo Vallarta became very noticeable the Villa Group were quick to stake a claim by developing the Villa del Palmar Flamingos, a favorite with golfers thanks to the courses nearby, and Villa la Estancia resorts there.

Next, the Villa del Palmar brand made it to the sunny shores and bright lights of Cancun where Tafer and the Villa Group developed a luxury resort & spa which is highly popular today. The high-end Villa del Palmar resort on the Islands of Loreto was soon to follow, for those who valued peace and quiet.
