We had a great time. Food was good. Rooms beautiful and clean. Don't miss going over to the Isla Mujeres. The ferry boat is right there. Get a golf cart, tour the island, it's beautiful. The beach there is amazing. The beach at the hotel is not bad. You'll read some reviews that people talk about the seaweed, but it's... More

This was originally booked as a vacation, but also doubled as our honeymoon getaway. The resort had issues, but it just depends on what you are going to let roll or "ruin" your vacation. The night we checked in, the ac wasn't working in the lobby, and there was barely lukewarm water to shower, and fill the Jacuzzi tub, which... More

Overall it was a great second family vacation. Excellent value for your dollar especially for larger families or groups. My only complaint was that the beach area was a little dirty. I stayed around the same area and some of the things that were left behind the day before remained in the same spot. Also I dont think they treated... More

Great location away from Cancun madness, near ferry to Isla Mujeres, amazing spa, delicious food, fun activities, and awesome service. Our one bedroom unit had an in room jetted tub and a beautiful ocean view off the large patio. Strictly 5 star all the way. Kudos to room service and restaurant staff. Amazing pools, swimming at the beach was so-so,... More

This is not your average all inclusive resort. The accommodations are second to none. Several nice pools and places to relax. The restaurants are amazing and far from ordinary or bland. The staff is incredible and friendly always with a smile. They are constantly working on cleaning the beach which is a nice touch. Convenient ferry to Isla de mujeres.... More

Just got back from Villa del Palmar. The resort is isolated its a good drive from the hotel zone and the mall if you're looking to visit these places and at least a good 40 minutes from the airport. The layout of the resort is perfect, it is huge so you really won't run into each other. They have 4... More

Stayed here June 21-26 with my husband and 6 children (20-8 yrs of age). We had a 2 bdrm suite which was plenty of room. The food was great, we ate at the buffet, steak restaurant, Zama, and the grill. I didn't like the fact that downtown Cancun was so far, but I knew this beforehand so it wasn't too... More

This was our 1st trip to the VDP, even though we've to Cancun Playa del Carmen about 8 times over the past 25 years. We've been to VDP in Cabo and twice to VDP Flamingo's in Puerto Vallarta. All are unique in what they offer. We took the ferry over to Isla Majures and had lunch and stayed the day.... More

The resort was beautiful and our room was very nice. The views from the balcony were awesome. We were on the 6th floor. However, the food was just average. The steakhouse is supposed to be the nicest restaurant on the resort. However, this was not the case for us. They only had reservations for 5:30 or after 9:00. We took... More
