Reception at airport was great no problems, the property is quite big, as you drive into the resort there is a huge water park which is not in use which was a shame. The resort it self is nice but needs updating and a little tlc. If you can, get the 400 series of rooms as they are away from... More

Visiting Palma Real Jan 25 to Feb 1, 2016 First off, the transfer to the airport was very smooth. Sunwing Reps at the airport looking after everyone! Got my band and package for the resort, just needed to grab the key from the front desk on arrival. Trip to the Resort about 40 minutes. My room was 306. This was... More

Trip got off to a poor start with Sunwing forgetting to load my suitcase which was only retrieved upon return to Toronto.Had to scramble to procure clothing and medication. Staff was extremely helpful during this process. Had an oceanview room with hammock. Although it does not have the glitz and glamour of other 4 star resorts, it more than makes... More

Overall, this was a very relaxing and memorable vacation at the Palma Real Beach Resort. Honduras: This was our first time in Honduras; however have traveled to Cuba and Dominican in the past. A few quick tips for travel here include, take USD (you cannot use CDN) to exchange to lempira if you plan to do shopping/tipping. The hotel rate... More

We spent a week at the end of December, celebrated New Years Eve there. The rooms are clean and spacious, lots of hot water in the shower. Fresh bottles of water daily. Towels are nice and thick. The beds are comfortable but the pillows are thin. The AC works great, although we only needed it during the day. There's a... More

The place is cute, the personal is very kind. You can have a bedroom with a view of the ocean, free drinks and food, and access to the pools and games. The decoration was cute and the wifi works even on the beach.

We spent a week at Palma Real during the new year , 2016. Had a very relaxing experience as it is a smaller resort and there aren't as many activities going on. Beautiful beach which has waves rushing in most of the time. Nice big rooms, good house keeping. Entertainment programs are on only on some days, karaoke on other... More

We had a nice time at the Palma Real. We were looking for something other than Cuba, but at a similar price point. This was the same price as many Cuban 4 star resorts, but much nicer. The rooms were nice. We were lucky to be upgraded, as the resort was quite empty when we arrived. We had a nice... More

This resort was spectacular! From the time we arrived, until we departed, our experience at the Palma Real was perfect. With mountains in the front and nothing but water to your back, this resort offers opportunities for amazing pictures. Our resort bracelets and busing to the resort were immediately given to us upon exiting customs.The moment we arrived at the... More

This was a nice inclusive hotel on the beach. The staff were friendly and accommodated our needs very well. Rooms were comfortable but showing their age. The buffet meals were of good quality and the dining room was clean. It was a great place to relax by the pools or on the beach.
