Without a doubt, the Villa del Palmar Loreto is a five star resort with exceptional staff. My family and I travel often and by far our week in VDP is one of the best, most relaxing, and delicious vacations ever! We stayed at Villa Del Palmar Loreto from August 14-21, 2015 and from the moment that we walked in we... More

We read a magazine article that described the VDP as the quieter and better version of the same resort in Cabo San Lucas. This is true. VDP has a beautiful resort set in a unique mountain, desert, and Sea of Cortez setting in Danzante Bay. The service is outstanding and is the best feature of a great resort. The staff... More

Wow! 1st (and only) disclaimer...we are owners at VDP in Nuevo Vallarta (Flamingos). VDP does an outstanding job catering to a visitor's desires. Just got back from a 10 day trip to VDPL and it was really amazing. The scenic beauty on the Sea of Cortez with the mountains of Baja providing a tremendous frame for the sunsets is truly... More

This resort is located in a beautiful, quiet, marine sanctuary. The staff was fabulous, and did everything possible to make you feel pampered in every way. Manny and Roberto around the pool, Cesar, Marisol, Manuel, and many others in the restaurants went above and beyond. We went on a snorkel trip wit Danzante Tours right from the beach in front...

We booked our stay (almost) at the last minute but did not regret going to VdP Loreto! It was a bit hard to get to from Canada, but once there the staff was extremely friendly (and not fake!) and made sure our stay was as smooth as possible. Loreto being so small, you get a different vibe than many places... More

Villa del Palmar in Loreto is a special place....Its 5 Star all the way...The location, the weather, the views and most importantly the staff are what makes Villa del Palmar of Loreto such a special place to visit. David in the restaurant, Manny and Roberto at the pool and Daniel with Danzante tours makes this resort even better. I hate... More

Just got back from an Interval International exchange into a studio unit on the 3rd floor with a nice view of the pool and beach. Room number was 2318B in the main building. I can't stop raving about the beach, the pools and the great service we received, especially from Jorge who was the beach bartender and the housekeeping staff.... More

We had a great time there. The water was very safe and the kids had a great time. The restaurant manager (Mario A. Dominguez Torres) was amazing. We saw him nearly everyday, if not everyday. He made sure everything was to our satisfaction and our kids loved seeing him. It is nice to see managers not just managing their staff,... More

We've been fans of this area for over 30 years and this resort gives us everything we've ever wanted! Not only is it in one of the most geographically beautiful locations, but you are made to feel like home by the very attentive staff. The food is fabulous with wonderful choices ranging from a burger or clams at outdoor Casa... More

We just returned from a 6 day stay at Villa del Palmar and had the best family vacation. We have a young daughter (4) and this was such a great place to be traveling with her, although I would highly recommend it to everyone looking to relax, with top notch service that makes you feel like family. The resort is... More
