We had a great time at El Palmar. As advertised, the tennis, and the hospitality were all amazing, but what we weren't expecting was that we were right next door to the best part of the beach. Quiet, beautiful, and endlessly relaxing. We would definitely go back!

This was our first trip to Melaque and the El Palmar resort but it won't be our last. The hotel/resort is small enough to feel warm and inviting but big enough to feel like you are escaping it all. We are not tennis players so had the pool all to ourselves while the others played tennis each day! Rosa, John,... More

We spent a glorious vacation at El Palmar Beach & Tennis Resort. As avid tennis players, we knew that we would get the chance to play each day on the clay courts in Cihuatlan surrounded by banana groves and vines of passion fruit. What we did not expect was the warm friendship John, Rosa and Katherine provided which imbued the... More

El Palmar provided a nice, spacious two bedroom condo with a good view of the Pacific. The condo was clean and the bread delivered was very good. The pots and pans had seen better days as had the linens, pillows and bath mats/towels. All need to be replaced at this price point. Not a fancy area -- RV parks and... More

We love Melaque, a small and authentic Mexican costal village with no chain restaurants, no chain hotels and no chain stores but an abundance of beauty and charm. El Palmar is perfect in that setting El Palmar is a small, family owned hotel with great beauty and charm. Perhaps the best of all is that the on-site owners are wonderful... More

El Palmar was a wonderful place to stay. John, Dr Rosa and Cathy's hospitality was first class. A fresh bun at the door in the morning was a real treat and the pot luck dinners on Wednesday evening with live entertainment was a great way to get together with all the guests. The place was very secure and I did... More

I've stayed all over Melaque and this place is the best. Lovely courtyard, gardens and pool, comfortable rooms, and best of all the care and hospitality of hosts John and Dr. Rosa. All kinds of extras, bikes, fresh bolios delivered every morning, tennis in a neighboring town and weekly dinners around the tiled bbq area. For a special experience, ask... More

We loved Melaque and felt very spoiled staying at el Palamar enjoying John and Rosie's generous hospitality. Our rooms (#5) were spacious, attractive, and spotlessly maintained, as was everything at le Palamar. The bikes were invaluable (bring your own clip on lights) as le Palmar is at the far end to town, perhaps 20 minutes walk from the main square... More

I stayed a whole month in the Penthouse/Honeymoon suit and found it luxurious, comfy and nice. I wanted to have extra music and they lend me their home stereo for the month. The food was great and the weather perfect. I liked the Tennis courts and really enjoyed John LaPointe's (owner) humour and personality. The staff was super friendly. I... More
