About Sim Hixson

CALL Sim 714-917-7000

Sim Hixson purchased this villa in 1995

Why Sim Hixson chose Amapas

Tons of space for larger groups, this villa sits just above Old Town with sweeping views of charming Old Town and Banderas Bay. Everything you need is a short walk away. This property and the staff let you experience Puerto Vallarta the way it should be.

What makes this villa unique

30,000 sq feet of wandering , lounging, and event space. Every detail was thought through.

The top level deck overlooking the city and bay is large enough for wedding ceremonies, company retreats, yoga classes and more. It's an easy walk to beaches, shopping, restaurants, and nightlife.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I just stayed here with a group of friends and we had a fantastic time. The staff is amazing and the views are incredible. It's walking distance to downtown puerto vallarta or a $3 cab ride. This is a gorgeous property. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect private location for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Villa Las Palmeras is an amazing, beautifully expansive private destination for family and friends to enjoy for vacationing, relaxing, entertaining, weddings and business events. The rooms are always extra clean. The staff is wonderful and will help you get anything you need. They picked up a birthday cake for us. It was unbelievable really to have the entire resort to ourselves also. Best value and best kept secret in Puerto Vallarta. There are no other deals better than this.

Terrible Customer Experience! NO WATER

  • 1 of 5

We rented Villa Las Palmeras for our wedding in April 2017. The dates of our rental agreement were April 28th-May 3rd. While the onsite Villa staff was absolutely fantastic and the food was amazing, our overall experience was horrendous. With high hopes, we checked in to the Villa on Friday April 28th. Our arrival day and the next day (Saturday April 29th) went smoothly and all of our guests (36 people including us) had a great time. Unfortunately after dinner on Sunday April 30th, the water shutoff. This meant that nobody could use the restroom, shower, cook, and the Villa was completely inhabitable. Luckily, we were ensured by the onsite staff (namely the onsite property manager Juan) that the water would be back on the following day. But by 6pm on Monday May 1st, the water had not returned. We had to book last minute hotel rooms at our own expense for ourselves and our 34 additional guests. We continued to check in with Juan every couple of hours on Tuesday May 2nd about the water but by 5pm that day it was still not working. The Villa owner who lives in Southern CA was of no help (we still have never heard from the owner to this day) and Naomi who is also based in Southern CA only communicated to us when we reached out to her. Given that the Villa was completely unlivable for 3 of the 5 nights we rented it, we requested a formal refund for those 3 nights. The owner of the property and Naomi have refused to give us a refund and the lack of communication from them has been horrendous to say the least. I would NOT recommend ever renting a property from these individuals (Naomi's company is called Vacation Rentals Now and the Villa owner has several other properties for rent in PV) as they are unreasonable and do not provide their tenants with the basic resources needed to consider a property live-able.

The experience was one of a kind. The staff is AMAZING!!! Juan will help you take care of everything. They're all so courteous and the food is fantastic. The Villa is beautiful and they all treat you like royalty. Most of the people that went said it was the best trip they have ever experienced. Sim, the owner was very helpful with everything as well. We WILL BE RETURNING TO THIS VILLA. Thanks for everything Villa Las Palmeras! Beautiful views and so close to beaches, fun restaurants and anything else you might want!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

If you plan on going to Puerto Vallarta with a group of friends or family this is where you have to stay! Honestly, after staying here I will never go back to staying at resorts ever again. This cozy Villa is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed in.

I was looking for a place to house a destination wedding for about 50 poeple. I looked at several different resorts throughout Mexico and they were all going to cost me an arm and a leg to host my wedding at their hotel. I started looking online for homes to stay in that slept a large number of people. That's when I came across Villa Las Palmeras! I had made contact with the property manager Sloane and told her how we were looking for a place to stay for our wedding. Now, initially, we were just going to walk down to the beach and have the ceremony there, but she told me that they host weddings on their rooftop all of the time. I also informed her that we had about 50 people attending our wedding and we would need lodging around Villa Las Palmeras. She told me that they also owned the villa next door that slept around 20. Naturally, I was ecstatic to hear this news. My dreams were coming true!

So, after finding both of these magical villas and in a price range that seemed too good to be true I continued to stay in contact with Sloane. She was so incredibly helpful. Nevertheless, I still had some hesitation about putting money down on a vacation rental since there is a ton of cyber scamming. I called the owner, Sim. He was so unbelievably kind and understood why I was so nervous. He told me all about the Villa and restaurants I should go to while I'm visiting. After talking to Sim I was super relieved.

Some things to know about the villa: They have it fully staffed practically all day. Every morning there is someone there cleaning up the pool area and picking up around the villa. They have maids that also make their rounds cleaning your sheets and giving you fresh towels. The chef Anna, is there as well to make you two meals a day of your choice. Her food is the best in Mexico I am sure of it! Everyone raved about her cooking. Basically, she was amazing and so was everyone else that worked in villa. We had the best time ever! I would recommends this rental to anyone. Our group ranged from ages 13-87. Fun was had by all!

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is beautiful and beyond our expectations! It is spacious with amazing views of the city. Anna, Juan and Marco made freshly squeezed Orange juice, chips, salsa, guacamole and margaritas daily. Anna served home cook meals daily. I would definitely recommend it!

Puerto Vallarta also known as the friendliest city in Mexico, is known for its exceptional quality food and culinary experiences, a "Foodies" paradise on the Bay of Banderas.

A culmination of memorable tours can also be found, like ATV riding through the jungle, fire dancing shows at Las Caletas and tequila museum tours are just a few unique examples.
