I will preface this review with the fact that I went here for a guys fishing trip and not a family get away. Hotel has transportation available from the airport which was a van with ac which was nice. The property is sprawling and pretty large. That being said, it is all over the place. Some things are neglected and... More

We went to this resort in order to make my dream come true of going Marlin fishing. The resort is gear up for this with lots for do for those not wanting to fish. We were the only non Americans tourist present but this was not a problem. The fishing, food , service and accommodation was extremely good.

A friend and I stayed here 4 nights and 3 days of fishing in late June. The stay went well as the staff was friendly and helpful. The food was also good and the weather was great while we were there. We stayed in a room with 2 queen beds and A/C worked VERY well and kept the room comfortable.... More

Been staying in the condos here for years, by far the best pool in the area. Beers are only $3.00 at the swim up bar. Fishing can be great here but I love to fish on the cruiser El Borracho with Captain Raul Montano and his deck hand Leo. In two / half days (6:30 - 12:00) of fishing this... More

Fancy! Shared a bungalow with a fellow photographer for the "Keepin It Reel" fishing and poker tournament. We also had a presidential suite for partying with the calendar models and poker. The room was as clean as expected. I loved the breakfast, and tacos through out the day. Who doesn't love a taco or two while in Mexico. The infiniti... More

My family stayed in the newly built penthouse at the villas. It was as big as my house with 4 bedrooms, 5 baths, a beautiful terrace with gazebo hot tub with floating curtains, beautiful kitchen with freezer, refrigerator, Monogram appliances, laundry room. Giant whirlpool bathtubs in 2 of the bedrooms. Very modern and swanky!

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.
