Reviews for Villa del Palmar at The Islands of Loreto
The 3 weeks that we spent at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto were the most relaxing vacation that we've ever had. The accommodations were fabulous, spacious, well maintained and extremely clean. Staff went out of their way to make sure that our stay was memorable and stress-free. The meals were fantastic and plentiful. This is definitely a place to visit for a pleasant vacation.

A long trip from Loreto and lots of work left. Timeshare presentation is brutal, you are pressured, pressured and pressured some more. They seem desperate to sell which is a red flag for me and it didn't seem busy there. Golf course still not finished only 11 holes done so far.

We spent a week in a one-bedroom suite in idyllic weather. The accommodations were spacious and very comfortable, with huge jetted tub, TV in LR and bedroom, and enormous ~800 sq ft (furnished) balcony. Though said to be at 90% occupancy during our stay, the resort felt anything but crowded; plenty of room and lounge chairs around the pools, lots of space at the beach, no waits at the restaurants. We were lucky with the weather; not a speck of wind till our last day, the scenery was spectacular (enhanced by the hiking trails). Standup paddleboarding and kayaking were available in the quite shallow and protected bay; the water was crystal clear, making the fish easy to see. We even followed an eel, and a small eagle ray, with our kayaks. Not being avid golfers, we enjoyed the 9 hole par 3 putting course ($12/person). Nightly evening entertainment was fun, with some of the daytime staff starring in dancing/acting roles at night. The restaurants were good -- which was a relief, given that there were no other options for meals if you didn't want to drive 35 min into town. The excursion to Danzante Island was spectacular; if weather is decent try to not miss this. This is a relatively remote resort, perfect for relaxing. There was very little here to make one feel you were in Mexico, other than the friendly and very helpful staff, the painted pottery sold poolside and the evening entertainment about Aztec history. If you wanted an immersion in local culture, you'd best find lodging closer to or in town (Loreto or elsewhere). The hotel created it's own exchange rate of 16.45 pesos per dollar; the bank rate was over 19 pesos/dollar.

The resort is beautiful, spectacular views of the Sea of Cortez, Islands and the Baja Desert Mountains. The staff worked extremely had to make this the experience a great. Managemen policies on staffing were evident, for example, they had one Bartender to cover six pools. Don't get me wrong, Manny did an excellent job, but he had to do it all by himself. As pescatarians, we were hugely disappointed they claimed to have no fish. When we pushed on this a few times, we found they did have fish in the fine dining room for and upcharge. We traveled to Loreto as it is known as a fishing village and sure enough when we traveled to town we found plenty of good fish at great prices. The claim of the restaurant manager was they could only buy from commercially licensed fishermen. A review of this policy proved to be true but when asked if fish purveyors in the town where commercially licensed replies affirmed licensure. Who knows where the truth is, but one should be able to eat fish at a resort in a fishing village every day.

Once again, by the title of my post, you might just get the idea that we love vacationing at VDP Loreto! My post albeit late, nevertheless holds the same sentiment as it did the day we left our vacation! This year for our wedding anniversary, we decided to take all our (adult) children to VDP Loreto, ages 24 â€“ 36, along with significant others/spouses, some live in Alaska with us, some live in Minnesota. We were a party of eight and could not have had a more fantastic time! Four of them have vacationed here before with us. We were there for two weeks over Christmas 2016 holiday. We absolutely love VDP Loreto, and each time we return they continue to offer returning customers something new and delightful! Of course we had a blast doing all the things we love to do, eating, beautiful hikes, eating, fantastic spa days, eating, pool side games, eating, daily crafts, eating, resting poolside, eating, enjoying evening entertainment, eating, and maybe some drinking along the way! Besides the fact that this is a fantastic resort for all ages, we continue to love the fact it is NOT Cabo, PV, etc. where it is loud, crowded, and we consistently receive customer service that exceeds all expectations! NOTE: VDP Loreto resort is a â€ścash freeâ€ť resort (you sign for any charges, although you can use cash in the store). A travel note, when you come, please, please bring lots of $1â€™s and $5â€™s to tip your staff. We get a 10% â€śGold Memberâ€ť discount on all purchases that I would put back on the invoice as a general tip that is shared by all staff and we always give cash tips, from wait staff to housekeeping. Staff do not expect a cash tip, but they so deserve it. Donâ€™t forget your housekeeping staff as well, as they do such an excellent job of taking care of your home away from home! For tons of other details on the resort to make your trip the very best, I would recommend reading my other five posts on VDP Loreto. Our opinion of VDP Loreto has not changed, except for the fact that we become closer to all the staff! I thank the VDP Loreto staff for treating our family with such thoughtfulness, fun, energy, humor, and love! You all made our anniversary celebration with our family very memorable! Thank you to reservations for getting rooms for our couples all coming and going at different times. Special thank you to Jenero for getting us the most beautiful rooms and getting our entire family into the same building. The views (three sides) of our suite (mom and dad) was fantastic! One of the best things we love about returning is coming back and seeing the same staff, who actually remember us by name! How is that possible when they must see thousands of tourists all year! Manny, Robert and Jorge continue to be the very best at poolside/ocean side service! Oscar Torres, dining director, you do a fantastic job with your team! Since the food industry is my line of business as well, I watched you lead you staff with the utmost professionalism and genuine care! I cannot even begin to name all the staff for fear of leaving someone out! You know who you are! Casa Mia is always a favorite place for us to eat! This year they changed the evening menu to Italian cuisine, and every dish we had (we shared several with eight of us) was absolutely delicious, and huge! Had a great time with the new Chef, Catalino! We celebrated our anniversary dinner at Danzante fine dining, and it was exquisite! The special that evening was fillet mignon and lobster. All eight hands went up in the air, and it was delicious! Topped off with a Spanish coffee for dessert! Wow! I have no more adjectives left to describe the total â€śexperience!â€ť I cannot imagine another place that can compete with the first class customer service we received! So, do you think we will be returning next year? Where else would I even want to go! It is expensive to fly from Alaska to anywhere. If I am spending hard-earned money, I am guaranteed to get the best vacation ever by returning to VDP Loreto. Hence, we will be preparing for â€śOur Return Trip #7â€ť very soon, returning with some of the kids who are also getting addicted to VDP Loreto!
