San Clemente is a lovely little fishing village with beautiful beaches. Palmazul is the only North American style resort in the area, and is nice. Very pretty pool area and lounge. I would not say this is a spa, but rather a hotel with a massage room, where they can call in a massage therapist if you would like a... More

If you are looking for an out-of-the-way place that hasn't been tainted with tourist traps, San Clemente is your place. The beach is beautiful and quiet, and local fisherman haul their catch onto the shore every morning. The hotel is gorgeous and has everything you need: comfy beds, plenty of hot water and great pressure, a bar, a beautiful pool,... More

Very accommodating resort and staff, we spend 3 nights and had a great time. It is located on a nice quiet beach, on a small fishing town. The pool and the facilities are excellent, as well as the restaurant. Highly recommend.

All of the rooms overlook the pool and ocean and most have balconies, which are very relaxing spots to enjoy the fantastic sunsets. The hotel has an excellent restaurant offering many local seafood items prepared in creative ways and at extremely reasonable prices. The breakfast, which is included,... More

A very nice and clean hotel with an amazing team that will do everything they can to make you feel good. If they had a safe in the rooms, it would be perfect. The sunsets were beautiful to see from our balcony between the palm trees. A very lush environment open on a beautiful sandy beach. Apart from their drinks... More

. . . except when the place is either horrible or awesome. This was awesome. The property is wonderful, an infinity pool looks through palm trees to the ocean. Cabanas on the beach, sun beds, tennis court, wonderful restaurant with mains between $7-14, poolside bar with fresh pina coladas, and the list goes on. The hotel manager Marcello is the... More
