Virtualization can add to latency, especially with older versions.
Whether that's the situation you are running into is something that would take actually digging into the server to determine. It's not really something that can be diagnosed via a forum. It depends on I/O bandwidth, wait types, how the virtual disks are configured, how the physical disks are attached to the physical server, load from other VMs on the server hardware, other forms of resource contention, and a host of other variables.
Virtualizing SQL Server can be very successful, but it can also be tricky to get right.
