Great place to be!! Very close to the Center of Puerto! Spacious appartements and good services! Restaurants in the resort are of good quality and the snacks and the Cocktails at the beachfront are marvellous! We sure want to go here again in 2015!

Upon arriving at this resort from a much larger and more luxurious resort in Nuevo Vallarata, my family and I were a bit disappointed. The resort, itself, is on the small side, and seemed rather cramped after our previous sprawling resort. Although the resort is beachfront, and the small grounds are pleasant, the designated swimming area is very small and... More

We stayed at the one in Cancun last year and it was awesome. We felt this would be a good as well. The staff was amazing, everyone was super nice and very helpful. The grounds were amazing and the pools and hot tubs were beautiful. The rooms have beautiful bathrooms with custom tiled soaking tubs. The huge king size bed... More

Our room was a 1 bdrm with two bathrooms, king bed, tv in bedroom and living room, kitchen stocked with anything we needed. The room was a little dated but still very nice. We had maid service every day.... More

The hotel grounds are beautiful kept, I was very impressed. It is connected to the Villa del Palmar, so you are able to use their facilities as well. Including the Palmar's, there are a total of 3 pools and 2 jacuzzi's so you can choose whichever you want (the quiet or the loud). There are tons of activities going on... More

Paradise in Mexico, A beautifully kept and spotlessly clean resort. The rooms are bit dated in the del Mar area, but really, how much time do you spend in your room while in Mexico. Staff is friendly and welcoming. We would like to thank Claudia Gonzalez; she was our Guest Services contact and she gave us excellent service with room... More

Beautifully kept, spotlessly clean. The rooms are bit dated, but really, how much time do you spend in your room while in Mexico. As long as the beds are comfortable and it's clean. And the beds ARE comfortable. Staff is friendly and welcoming. They do try to get you to attend a "breakfast presentation" which is your "timeshare accosting", but... More

Place very well maintained, staff very friendly. Drinks and food very good. Rooms nice and comfortable. Definitely would go back. It is a time share location and they do encourage you on check in to take the briefing for time share, but if you do not want to you have to be firm and they respect your decision.

I have never seen front office people be so rude and disrespectful. It is because of us that you have a job. Customer service makes me never want to return to this place ever! Other then that the location is fantastic, central to everything. Rooms good, pool bar good aswell. If you can tolerate lack of customer service then this... More
