Palmazul is a great little hotel located right on a beautiful beach. 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

When we first set step inside it was realy breath taking! Beautifull pool, garden and off course the sea! The bar looked nice and prices are resonable. The food could be better and the hotel looked like it was 10 years older than it realy is. Neverless it was worth every cent of it!

This is a very laid back and beautiful resort in a very quiet beach area. If you want a beach with lots of sun bathers and hawkers, san clemente is not for you - here the beach is not very large, but its beautiful, almost empty, and the water is warm. The resort itself is also gorgeous and service is... More

I just loved the ocean view from our room, the service was great and i had a great time with my 2 kids. Experience beyond expectations no doubt. I strongly suggest Palmazul on weekdays if you're travelling with kids (it gets busier on weekends with couples and youngs).

My wife and I just spent 3 wonderful days at PalmAzul as part of a wedding party. The hotel is wonderful, great rooms all with an ocean view (showers could do with being updated though) and all the staff are friendly and courteous.
