“Nice for families.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

Finishing up our 2nd week at the resort. I purchased 2 weeks from an owner that was selling their weeks. We got a great deal for $950. Our studio room was great, we had a perfect view of the ocean and the surrounding property. We also were right above Las Tortugas and were able to watch the theme shows from our balcony which was nice.
Service is pretty good. Wait staff is attentive, especially Rut Garcia at Las Tortugas. My 3year old twins loved the nightly shows and she would go out of her way to make sure to find us a table close to the action. She was a sweetheart.
I would also recommend that if you don't have the all-inclusive, make sure to do some shopping at the local Costco, Wal-Mart, or SAMs. The resort is very expensive, especially the Palmita. A box of graham crackers is $15.00. Crazy expensive. If you decide to go to a timeshare presentation, they will offer a 15% discounted gold card which can can use towards food etc... We did not want to go to a presentation so we declined. Heat/humidity is rough in July. Thank God for a/c in our room!

Our room was clean, though the door to the bathroom stuck and the room always smelled musty. The bed was comfortable, though, and was nice and cool - no small feat in July! I LOVED the restaurant that overlooked the beach. It was such a beautiful view.

We had two servers that were really outstanding. One was Jimmy in the Italian restaurant. He served our group of 15 without batting an eye. He was so friendly and helpful as well.

The second server was Jorge Figeusa. Again, he served a group of 15 with ease. He was friendly, fun and so attentive.

We had an awesome vacation with our family. The presentation given at the time share walk was well worth it. We upgraded our time share and they gave us a great deal. We will definitely return next year and many more to come.

Just returned from this resort. Have mixed feelings. Our first room had a view of the employee parking lot and as this was our 25th wedding anniversary that would just not do! Upgraded to an ocean front room for an additional cost and got a room with a tall stucco front so could only see the ocean view if standing up on the balcony. No king size bed either. Traveled with 12 other people and we were all disappointed to find only 1 restaurant had AC! I would NOT recommend swimming from their beach. We watched numerous people having to be rescued from the huge waves. In fact the beach was blockaded many times during our stay. Pool got slimy and green as the day wore on. Walk to town not doable in the July heat but taxis were always available. Half our group an intestinal distress during our visit bad enough to miss meals and adventures! We managed to skip the highly aggressive time share pitch but heard from others it was high pressure!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for an ocean FRONT room with a metal balcony NOT a stucco one you can't see throu...

Spent one week in July 2014. This was our 2nd time at Palmar. The staff here is always great and very friendly. At the pool, our server was Jose Reyes and he was the best!!! He had us and everyone around us very happy. We can't wait until we can come back.

Jose Reyes gave us excellent service! Throughout our week stay there he always came around to us poolside and made sure we were satisfied. He brought our food and drinks quickly for our large group. He made sure we always had our drinks/beer cold and fresh! He made us feel welcomed and comfortable. He had a very friendly attitude and we hope to see him again next year!

My husband and I went on this trip in July 2014. We went on vacation without out two children since our youngest was born (four yrs. ago). We stayed at this resort with the all-inclusive package and it was well worth it. The resort is very nice with a lot of things to do. Even though we didn;t take out children, there we a lot of activities for kids too. We will definitely go back. Recommend the all inclusive package to anyone. We met several couples who have been coming to this resort for years. Marcus provided great pool side service everyday.

Room Tip: Ask for a beachfront room on level 3 or higher. It can get quite loud on the lower levels by the po...
