Arriving at the resort for the first time is like a scene out of a movie; nothing but cactus and sagebrush and then this beautiful complex just appears at the end of the road. The resort is only about 4 years old and shows 10 out of 10. We got a two bedroom suite with my parents and they were...

This was a laid back place. The beach is lovely and Jorge on the beach as waiter is a delight. Nice walks in the Hilda, bird life and we kayaked and snorkelled. I had taken a short wetsuit that allowed more comfortable swimming from the beach. We cooked in our room which I enjoyed. About 40 km from Loreto so...

This was our second year at Villa Del Palmar with a group of 14 friends. The resort is remote but relaxing is easy and there are things to do. You can relax pool side or on the beach. You can take a whale/snorkeling trip right from the beach. You can hike, kayak or paddle board. The golf course isn't completed...

The resort is new, and is 40 minutes south of the town of Loreto, Baja California Del Sur, situated on the sea of Cortez. There is a world class golf course under construction to be completed by the end of October 2017, there are currently 11 holes open, and the course is spectacular. The 17 th hole is incredible. Loreto...

The VDP was a great resort, so isolated from everything. Service was great in all areas. The pool guys were hard workers and kept the drinks coming. Roberto was our favorite pool guy and took good care of us every day we were at the pool. Fransico was the bartender at one of the restaurants and always gave us good...

This was our second stay at VDP and the minute we walked in we were received with such a heartwarming welcome. The staff remembered us from last year and were greeted with hugs and kisses, it was like a family reunion. Jenaro at the front desk was extremely helpful finding us just the right room. At Casa Mia, Gerardo and...

I spent the first four days of my Mexican holiday at the Villa Del Palmar, You think the place is in the middle of nowhere after the 20-30 minute trip from the airport, and basically it is, but it is an oasis in the desert. The all inclusive package made things easy. Its a beautiful resort with pools and spa...

This was my first time to Loreto and the Villa Del Palmar Resort. It was such a nice, relaxing vacation. The resort itself is a 20-30 minute drive from the town of Loreto, but they offer a shuttles several times per day for a minimal fee. My room was a studio with two queen beds. Other than the somewhat small...
