About Sim Hixson

20 years I began construction on this 30,000 square foot 12 bedroom 13 bathroom villa.

It's been a labor of love. I love sharing it with people and want everyone to get the same enjoyment out of the home as I do. I am very busy always working maintaining my properties and taking care of my children but I am always available for questions if you need to contact us.

Sim Hixson purchased this villa in 1995

Why Sim Hixson chose Amapas

The Villa is big enough to handle most groups, and sits just above Old Town with sweeping views of 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, yoga classes and more. The staff are one of a kind and make your experience one to remember. All you need to do is relax. 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.

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!

Great Villas!!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Villa Las Palmeras and it was amazing! My husband and I rented out this villa and Villa Katalina for our wedding in July of 2014 and I can’t say enough great things about it. The villas themselves are beautiful and well cared for (they more than lived up to the pictures). The views are spectacular from everywhere in the villa and the pool was a huge hit. They are both also a short walk from the town, so you can get to shops, restaurants, and the beach very easily. Lastly, the staff was incredible! Everyone who worked there was warm, friendly, and welcoming, and they made all of us feel at home. They went out of their way to make sure that we were all comfortable and happy, and I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people.

We had the ceremony on the rooftop patio and it was beautiful. The view from the roof was a spectacular backdrop for the wedding and the breeze that came through was a lifesaver!

After our time there with our family and friends my husband and I went to a hotel in Puerto Vallarta for our honeymoon and we found that we really missed the villa! We both really preferred the homey atmosphere of the villas to the impersonal and isolated feeling of hotels.

I would recommend these two villas to anyone who has a special ceremony or a group vacation coming up!!

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.
