The owner (Peter) is a lovely happy Dutch guy and makes your stay pleasant. Unfortunately staff isn't very helpful knowing what to do in the area, which busses to take et cetera. It's far away from everything, without a car is not a great place to stay. Staff get's local breakfast (Gallo Pinto) while guest gets toast with peanutbutter?? Furtunately... More

Dear guest, thank you very much for your compliments about me, it is really appreciated. Concerning our breakfast we would like to clear something up, we have chosen to offer to our guest an international buffet breakfast (eggs, ham, cream cheese, jelly, peanut butter, brown and white bread and cereal), the reason is because not everybody is used or know...

Conveniently close to the airport in a quiet area. As many reviewers have already remarked, the (Dutch) owner does not show himself much, and there seem to be no other staff, but his (Dutch) interns who run the place unsupervised with youthful exuberance, can make you feel quite at home. The owner also does not seem to be concerned much... More

They are carefully chosen, supervised and qualified, to do the reception and front office tasks. The rest of the responsibilities of running the hotel as well as the back office work, are done...

Dos Palmas turned out to be a good place for us to start and end the holidays. Owner (+staff) was very service oriented and helped us with the transfers and car. Pricing was reasonable and the staff accommodating. Kids appreciated it too.

I am the guide of the group that requested a barbecue on this same day. Peter and Flor (the owners) where really busy... More

Stay here if you want to sleep in a gated Dutch enclave, with no proper restaurant and little charm. The guests could order hamburger and expensive frozen pizza, while the smells of the owner's barbecue wafted across the garden. The owner never showed himself, but left everything to the (very pleasant and helpful) interns. My dreams of a final cocktail... More

What really stands out about this place though is the excellent service. The owner Peter and his wife Flor are incredibly generous people and if you... More
