AAA Four Diamond status reconfirmed for upmarket Puerto Vallarta hotel

“This rating … reflects the great work and commitment our amazing staff has with the Villa Premiere,” Abel Villa, general director of parent company Hoteles Buenaventura group, said. “Our aim is to always make our guests feel like they have been received in their own secluded but lush paradise. That feeling can only be achieved by the work our staff does on a daily basis.”

According to AAA, a Four Diamond hotel is refined and stylish, providing upscale physical attributes, extensive amenities and a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail. A Four Diamond restaurant, likewise, provides distinctive fine dining, creatively prepared and skillfully served, often with a wine steward, amid upscale ambiance.

A total of 1,615 hotels throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean received AAA’s Four Diamond rating last year, qualifying them for the 2017 Four Diamond Award list. Four Diamond hotels account for just 5.9 percent of the nearly 28,000 AAA-approved hotels.
