Reviewed September 11, 2012

This hotel is so perfect for a lone female traveller! I stayed for a month and was treated like gold. Juan & Liz kept an eye out for me, introduced me to wonderful people and helped me navigate the town. The room was perfect as well as the pool, gardens and the location could not have been better. Close to everything I needed and more! Juan even took me to watch a turtle lay eggs on the beach one night! It is really the staff that make the experience unique. Hotel Palmeras is a little piece of heaven!

Room Tip: I stayed in room 14, very quiet with a great patio, hidden away in the gardens. The kitchen was per...

I will preface our review, by stating that we have visited Puerto Vallarta many times over the years. On our last trip, we decided to retire to the Bucerias area. With this thought in mind, we booked a month at the Hotel Palmeras.

We arrived on 7/3/2012, and were plesantly surprised by this wonderful hotel. It was exactly what we had hoped for. The room was very pleasant with comfortable beds, a full kitchen (including utensils, microwave and everything you might need to prepare a meal), and a very clean room.

On the following morning, we awakened to a beautiful pool side view. The landscaping around the courtyard is spectacular and very tropical. The pool is surrounded by lounge chairs and has a free gas BBQ for guest usage. My wife and I spent many a pleasant day enjoying the courtyard and pool. P.S. they provide beach towels.

The hotel has the absoulute best location in Bucerias. It is located in the Zona Dorada (Gold Zone) and is close to nearly everything you might need or want to do. There are several fine resturants located within walking distance to the hotel. There is a small grocery store only one block away which stocks everything you might need. The beach is only one block away! The town plaza, restaurants, shopping and night life is only two short blocks away.

The hotel staff is incredible! We found them to be friendly, helpful, courteous and willing to go out of their way to assist us. The manager Juan was friendly, kind and spoke fluent English. He is extremely knowledgeable about Mexico and the PV area in paticular. We quickly developed a friendship and he was very helpful in helping us navigate the Bucerias area and it's attractions.

In fact, he was gracious enough to drive us, on his day off, to several stores in order to purchase furniture, groceries and a flat screen TV!!!!!! He even came to our condo to help us setup our smart TV and internet. Needless to say, we not only enjoyed our stay at the hotel but had the great benefit of making a lifetime friendship!

My wife and I would recommend the Hotel Palmeras without hesitation. You will enjoy your stay!!

Room Tip: Book a room which faces the pool and courtyard area. The pool is only several feel from your door.

I've stayed at the Hotel Palmeras three times and will be going back this coming February. The hotel has many repeat visitors from Canada and the States which is always a very good sign, with a good number of them staying for as long as a month. The staff is very friendly, helpful and well informed. There wasn't a question I had that they couldn't answer. The units form a courtyard around the pool which makes it very easy to mingle and the beach is a two minute stroll away. Bucerias is a great little town with a wide range of things to do if you tire of the beach/pool. Very easy to get to PV if you want to hit the big city. All in all it's just a great place to be. I'll be going back, I hope, for many years to come!

Room Tip: Second floor facing the pool is best...but they're all good.

We stayed for two weeks and we loved it. Clean rooms and great maid service. Juan the hotel manager was very attentive and friendly, he took very good care of us. I felt very safe there.
The location is awesome, can walk every where in town, lots of great restaurants and spa services just minutes walk away, same with the beach.
Thanks again Juan. Don & Liz

Loved, loved, loved this hotel! The service, the friendly warm surroundings, and always ready to help you attitude was all that we look for when traveling. The hotel manager Juan was just AWESOME! and Liz a real sweetheart.

The beach is just a short block and a half away and there are so many great restaurants all within walking distance. Be sure to go to the restaurant Mezzogiorno on the beach. You will not be disappointed I promise. Great service and wonderful food.

Lots of shopping and the bus services are so convenient for lots of day trips.

Thanks for making our stay so pleasurable Juan, Liz, Don and the rest of the staff! Looking forward to returning next year. :). Bob & Annette

This is a great little hotel. Nothing missing. Close to outstanding resturants so you can walk. Safe with nice place for guests to congrigate around the pool all the time and even a barbeque for your use. People talked to each other, shared stories, made food on the barbie, had coronas, swam. They were all friendly and you couldn't do better if you wanted to travel somewhere alone but not be lonely!
Its small, safe, scenic, just great.

Room Tip: They all look over the pool.

We stayed at the Hotel Palmeras the last two weeks in February. We have nothing but praise for the hotel staff, especially the manager Juan. He goes out of his way to ensure that your stay is enjoyable. We had a great view of the ocean from our penthouse room and we enjoyed the panoramic view of Bucerias from our patio. Unfortunately, we too experience a bad smell from the drains in our bathroom. We enjoyed the pool parties and free refreshments each Monday evening. It was a great way to meet the other guests as well as the staff. The duo played music from the 60's and 70's and were very entertaining. Although the restaurants in close proximity to the hotel tend to compete with each other by playing loud music it was usually over by 11.00 p.m. However, there was one night where a local band across the road began playing at 12 midnight and stopped at 5.00 a.m. Not sure whether this was just a once a year event or not. The location of Hotel Palmeras is ideal as it is just a block away from the beach. There are many good restaurants and cafes close by and it is just a short walk to the market.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with full kitchen facilities.
