We found this hotel to be in excellent condition, newly painted and spotless. The pools are clean and have a pleasant design. The staff is friendly. The only negative I can think of, is that the beds are rather hard. As for the restaurants, the food is fine but has American prices, I recommend visiting the 10 or so varied... More

I've been coming here and to it's sister hotels for going on 20 years. It is hands down the fanciest hotel in Los Barriles hands down. It caters to fishermen, but to other vacationers alike. It's next door neighbor, Playa del Sol, is also owned by the Van Wormer's and it is not quite as fancy, but it cater's more... More

Love to give Palmas 5 Stars but it likely doesn't deserve 3 now. The beautiful Sea of Cortez views and beach front location is wonderful. The facilities are deteriorating; many loungers and umbrellas broken, cushions rotted, pool in disrepair with broken tile all around the pool bar, triton fountain not working, etc. Spilled drinks around pool deck and chairs go...

The hotel is safe and secure and beach/pools are beautiful. Rooms are basic and beds are not comfortable. Shower was cold but staff were friendly and helpful and fixed it straight away. We had a relaxing and fun time just don't expect a party hotel.

We're currently staying at Las Palmas and while the views, beach, and town are fabulous, the hotel/resort is average at best. We were told that the resort water is not purified in the rooms but there was nothing in the rooms indicating not to drink it and bottled water is not offered complimentary. Good thing I asked about drinking it... More

We were at the hotel the end of February. As noted by others, there were very few people at the hotel. We had a great room with a little patio looking out onto the ocean. We had a rented car, and it was nice to have secure parking. We did have breakfast; the coffee was excellent and the staff was... More

We have yet to stay here, only because we never have enough time on our Cabo trip. We ride our motorcycles to Los Barriles every time to sit on the beach patio to enjoy a cold beer, great margarita. It is hard to leave here, it is a piece of paradise you will never forget, we look forward to staying... More

We have stayed here twice.Both times we stayed in the oceanfront rooms which were small but had a beautiful view. The food at the hotel is not very good and the service is erratic. Sometimes the showers don't work and the Internet is sporadic.The fishing can be absolutely wonderful and they have the largest fleet of sports fishing boats in... More

We stayed at Las Palmas during a very quiet week (last week of February). Check in was quick (we were the only ones checking in, so I’d expect that). We had reserved Cabana #10, and when we checked in we were informed that we couldn’t stay there due to construction. The cabanas are three rooms to a building. They initially... More

This is a huge property located on the beach with gorgeous views. We visited early February when the place was pretty much deserted. Our "garden view" room was clean and had a slight view of the ocean which was nice. However, the beds were probably the most uncomfortable beds we have ever slept in. Hard as a rock and we... More
