We stayed at villa del palmar for a week on an all-inclusive plan. Check in was smooth and easy with the typical time share sales pitch built in, but once we expressed no interest we were not approached again.
Our room was a spacious and clean 1 bedroom suite with a well equipped kitchen that we didn't use. We found a small snack waiting for us each day after returning to our well made-up room. Each time we came across a house cleaning manager they were sure to ask if we needed anything for our room.
The pools and garden areas were very clean and well kept. The beach area was also very clean and there were a good number of lounges.
Service on the beach and at the pool was good, but not great. I believe the service could be improved greatly if management would be more consistent in scheduling the time it begins and by allowing servers to work the same areas each day. I guess its more of a personal preference, but in most resorts we have stayed at that was the case. One other complaint about the service (and again it's a management issue) is you are required to sign a receipt every time you eat or order anything, even down to a bottle of water. Maybe servers could scan bar codes on the bracelets all-inclusive guests are required to wear, or something else, but the amount of paper generated in one day would be enough to motivate me to seek a better way.
We only ate breakfast and lunch at the resort so we can't review dinner, but the two meals we had each day were very good. Breakfast was always fresh with all of the usual choices and lunch by the pool was also very good. The pizzas were great.
The location is excellent for those who like to head into Cabo. You could easily take a cab ($7) each way, or take a leisurely stroll down the beach (just about a mile) to the marina area.
Overall, this resort was very relaxing and enjoyable, the staff were very friendly and the the price matched the facility and level of service.
