El Palmar is conveniently situated close by the beach and a number of restaurant/bars. Our suite (#10) had a terrific view of the beach and the sunset and its placement allowed a cooling breeze through the rooms. There is a clean, quiet outdoor pool available along with a smaller wading pool. The staff are friendly and efficient and a wonderful... More

We stayed for the first time at El Palmar for January and February and it was fantastic. It is very peaceful and quiet in the charming village of Melaque. The top floor rooms have fantastic views and are very spacious, although the second floor rooms are all nice too. Katharine, Leo and Gladys took great care of us... all in... More

I had a great vacation at El Palmar, stayed January and Feb this year as well as last and booked for 2016. As a woman travelling solo it is the most secure place that you could find anywhere. John and Dr. Rosa make you feel like family and Katherine is there for all your wants and needs. If you don't... More

Spent 5 weeks here in Jan/Feb and was extremely pleased with our accommodations. The "Casa" is gorgeous with a great swimming pool and wonderful BBQ area where the bi-weekly potluck dinners were held. John, Rosa, Katherine and staff have a great way of fostering a sense of "Familia" amongst the guests. Daily housekeeping and fresh bread rolls (Bolio) are delivered... More

We stayed at el Palmar for the eighth time in eleven years of travelling to Mexico-there is a reason for continuing to return to el Palmar, it is a blast! These words come to mind: Sunshine, clean rooms, great site, tennis, bikes, friends, camaraderie, pot luck, restaurants, bollios, Oso & Gatoito--and, "feels like home...." John, Rosa, Kathy and staff continue... More

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
