My family and I arrived to this hotel with high expectations given the information provided about its services and amenities. It is a nice hotel, located at the beautiful beach of San Clemente which I have not visited in at least 30 years, I am glad to see that it is still more or less as I remember it. I... More

Excellent service, great value for what you get. Beach is literally a few feet away from the hotel/pool. Very good food. The best of all, staff could not be friendlier, I've been to 5 star hotels and never experienced this kind of courtesy and attention. I am giving 4 stars to rooms just because they need to add some mosquito... More

The hotel is good but they need to care for DETAIL. The day I stayed there, the hotel was empty but they put me in the smallest room of all. And believe me: the room was so small that the bed barely fit in there. Don't they know that every night a room is empty is a night lost forever?... More

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

Two weeks ago I traveled to this lovely resort with my girlfriends family. I booked 7 rooms for 20 people and could not have been more delighted with the venue and service. The staff, including Marcelo, Liz, Pablo, Ines, Marlon and everyone else treated us exceptionaly well. Their professionalism and friendliness were very refreshing. The rooms were large and well...

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.

Originally we were booked for 3 nights, but we changed our plans and stayed for a week. The rooms have balconies that overlook the ocean and large infinity pool. There are comfortable spa beds around the pool and hammocks on the beach. It is a great place to relax.The staff is very friendly and helpful. We shared many laughs as... More
