This hotel is amazing. I've visited a number of the other Villa Del Palmar properties and I think this is my new favorite. It's so unique, having a luxury resort, but away from a resort town, in an unspoiled bay. Staff were fantastic and friendly , food was excellent, rooms were great with full housekeeping everyday. Great spa. Pools were... More

Gilberto and the manager at Desante restaurant are top notch. Marc Anthony, Elim, Guillermo are just 3 of many people that provide incredible service. Carlos with the Desante Bay golf course is...

The rooms, the pools, the snorkeling, the rooftop tennis... I honestly can't think of anything this place was missing! We went on a hike over the amazing cliffs to an unbelievable hidden cove where I could have snorkeled for the next 50 years!

We stayed at Villa Del Palmar with 250 coworkers as part of our 25th anniversary celebration. The hotel was fantastic. We enjoyed everything from the staff, to the rooms, to the golf course, to the amazing beach. The management has done an incredible job with this place and we definitely want to return.

what a vacation destination! couldn't have been any better. Perfect location for rest, pool lounging, food, and activities. Made it especially nice that we had the resort practically to ourselves, with only about 25 people checked in during our week stay! Staff was very accommodating helpful, and friendly.

Loreto is a beautiful place and we absolutely love Villa del Palmar. Why do we love this hotel? The trip to get there by itself, 30 minutes or so from the airport, offers amazing views. The Danzante bay is astonishing.The hotel is large, but despite that, does not alter the scenery; on the opposite, its size helps in giving the... More
