The good things first. The setting of this resort is totally exceptional ..beautiful coastline and mountain views .Lovely beach with crystal clear water and great pools. Relaxing and quiet (except minor noise and dust in some areas from the golf course and extension construction - of which more anon). The staff are also exceptional - eager to help, efficient and...

Airline service to Loreto is limited with plans to increase other carriers. The Airport is small and modern with car rentals available. The half-hour plus shuttle ride ($90 round trip for two or more expensive taxi) from the airport is a bit rough at times but worth it. A 5-year +/- resort reminds me of an oasis on a magnificent...

Beautiful property, beautiful island... So much to do from the hiking, snorkeling, kayaking, restaurants... Perfect for families with young (older) children, couples, girls (guys) trip. Not the place to go if you're looking for nightlife but a perfect beach getaway to relax, recharge. The customer service superior!

The resort is top 5 star. The excursion out to snorkel was not only like a site seeing trip but very fun and informative. The restaurants were great. We did all inclusive and would do it again. Great value. The spa is beautiful.

The staff at Danzante restaurant at the villa del Palmer in loreto Mexico are friendly, accommodating and make your dining experience so enjoyable. This is our second year to the resort and dining at least a couple nights during our visit at the restaurant is a highlight. The food is fabulous, Mexican coffee and the lava cake is to die... More

I can’t stop telling everyone that this is the BEST resort in Baja California Sur! Staff is incredibly friendly, someone is always there to help you in any way. Manuel & Roberto at pool are AWESOME & their Baja Margaritas are addictive. We paid for all-inclusive & there was enough variety to not get bored. Food is fresh & well... More

Once again, we had a lovely vacation at this resort last month. We think the Loreto staff are the best trained of the entire Villa Group,- they are welcoming, warm and attentive. The resort itself is on the Baja and is just a really special, magical place if you are looking to get away from it all. There are plenty... More

My wife and I went with another couple, so we chose suites that joined together. Very nice suites, with an enormous deck and beautiful view of the sea, surrounding mountains and pools below. We chose not to get all-inclusive, since we could cook breakfast and make lunches in our main suite .... we had plenty of duty-free to keep us... More

Shhh! Don't tell everyone, just your friends...Villa Del Palmar Loreto is a gem on the Sea of Cortes. The hotel's location is ideal. The staff cares for your every need. David and Julio offer the best tableside service in Casa Mia. Roberto and Manny bring food & drinks to you at the pool with laughter and a smile. Looking to... More
