Our stay was excellent in every way. The staff is the friendliest we have come across in the 35 years we have been traveling and staying at interval resorts. Please fly in as it is a difficult drive from the States. This property has a lot of future potential if they follow their plan. And what a golf course they... More

We have been to many places and have had decent experiences. But our stay at Villa del Palmar Loreto has been one of the best because of the attention that the staff gives you. Our great experience started before we even arrived at the resort. I had to make changes to my vacation dates and Bertin C took care of... More

What can I say about a fabulous 3-night, 4-day stay in Loreto that hasn’t been said before? The pictures really do tell the story. We arrived on Thursday, June 30 and took a beautiful 40-minute van ride along the breathtaking Gulf Coast to this wonderful oasis, Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto in Baja California Sur, Mexico.

Nightly entertainment-WOW. You need to RELAX when you are there. No hurries, no worries. Service from EVERY staff member was not only excellent, but from their true hearts.

The staff was GREAT. Special shout out to the sports bar/Casa Mia waiter Cesar and the mens spa attendant Alejandro for exemplary service. Sadly, the aloe bath treatment at the spa was needed due to the 20-30 jellyfish stings suffered during a snorkel session in the bay. We are told the jellyfish are only in the bay a few weeks...

Beautiful surroundings, clean and fresh beyond belief. Golf coarse is stunning. Beach great for snorkeling and filled with variety of fish. Carlos and Samantha were gracious and accommodating throughout our stay. Only downfall is can get pricey if your not tracking your costs as is a non cash resort.

We just returned from an excellent honeymoon and stayed in a 1 bedroom suite for 8 nights. To start, I have to say that I have stayed in a couple 5-star beach resorts in the past, and am comparing this experience to others I have had. Although it was a wonderful experience overall, I have to agree with other reviewers... More

Located a 1/2 hour's drive south of Loreto, the Villa del Palmar Beach Resort at the Islands of Loreto is truly a five-star destination! There are several pools, three onsite restaurants, a wonderful golf course (you've got to check out the 17th hole!) and of course, the beach! The rooms are very spacious and include a kitchenette as well as... More
