Villa del Arco is the nicer of the two IMO. The only deterent may be if you want a lot of activity at the resort you choose because VDE is fairly quiet.

What is your age? I know that is a rude question! The ME is mostly geared for the younger, south beach type crowd and they play contstant techno, new age, trance music which I don't like! However there are far fewer kids there and it is a shorter walk into town.

The Villa del Arco is a great newer timeshare resort but does attract alot of families.

Without knowing more about you and if you are traveling with kids, it's hard to make suggestions. The brand new Casa Dorada is really nice and even closer to town. And even though they are older, both of the Pueblo Bonito properties are very well kept and very nice.

With the exception of the ME, all of the resorts on Medano beach are timeshare resorts so check out redweek.com and vrbo and you can probably rent directly from an owner for less than half of what the resort charges themselves.

Househunter had good advice. But if you use www.redweek.com to get a place, dont rule out the Pacific side resorts like Playa Grande,Solmar, and Finistera.

I would choose Arco after staying at both. You can always visit the ME to experiance it's pool scene as you wish and go back and get a good night sleep at Arco.
