I'd stayed at Punta Colorado twice prior to the recession; rustic but I enjoyed it for a guys fishing trip. But since it has since closed, this was my first visit to Palmas. Two in my group got an ocean view room with a fireplace. My buddy and I got a cabana room near the bird cages (rooster). But as... More

This was my first trip to this hotel and this area. I went with a bunch of retired firefighters from the Sacramento area who have been going to this area for several years. they go primarily to fish but also to spend time together, rehash years in the FD and yes, to maybe even consume a few adult beverages. Can't... More

Villas de Cortez is a new condo property that is part of the Hotel Palmas de Cortez Resort in Los Barriles, Mexico. We stayed at the condos from June 19-23, 2014, while my husband, our son and a friend fished for tuna and dorado. The resort is beautiful. It is located on a white sand beach and all the condo...

Thank you for your review. We are constantly remodeling our rooms to try and keep them fresh and up to date. We remodel a set of rooms each and every year. 5 years ago we lowered the room rates by $30 per person per night and made the meals optional. Many people did not like the fact that meals were...

If you are booking to fish, you will enjoy your stay. If you want a beach resort, this is probably not the place for you. This resort is focused on fishermen, so morning noise and beach activity with boat launching will likely annoy those who want to sleep in. There isn't a lot of night activity as the majority of...

Thank you for your review Barbara! It is always nice to hear from our guests. March is not a great month for fishing, as our season really doesn't get going until April/May and goes through November. December-March are considered our off season and we become a wind surfing/kite boarding destination. We hope you will come visit us again during our... More

This hotel is the best full service hotel in town. They offer everything you could expect including pools with swim-up bar, banquet facilities, salon, spa, an excellent restaurant, two bars, and a full fishing fleet for the adventurous. The room-with-meal plan is a good choice, but there are also many places to eat in town that you might want to... More

My first stay last year was so fantastic. So I decided to visit again in May 2014. If you love to fish then this place is Mecca. Both visits have been in off season April and May, tops for Stripped Marlin. 7 days of fishing equalled 27 stripped Marlin landed and released. (thanks to Capt. Alberto and mate Daniel).

This was one of our favorite stops on a recent Mexico trip simply because of the lack of tourists here. The town was secluded & the beach was empty. The staff was friendly & helpful. The rooms were clean & more modern than most MX hotels. We loved the beautiful entry way & the beach/pool side bar. The bartenders were... More

We loved how quiet and secluded this place was. Not busy in January at all. Clean and staff were friendly and courteous. Restaurant was excellent as well. Would recommend for those who wish to get off the beaten track.

We have stayed at the Hotel in the condos before and they were great. This time they are starting to show some wear and tear or maybe upkeep is not what it once was. The economy has been hard on everyone and maybe at the Hotel Palmas also. The condo had mice. The bedrooms had ants. Small appliances in the... More
