Reviews for Villa del Palmar at The Islands of Loreto
Our son and daughter-in-law own a vacation membership with the Villa Del Palmar group and somtimes give us their week to enjoy. This was the first time we stayed at this location and for the most part, WE LOVED IT! Below I will explain why I felt obligated to give it a "Very Good" instead of an "Excellent" rating. The location offers a very beautiful view and the resort isn't too big or too small. It's just about right. It's about 45 minutes from the pueblo of Loreto. Not a problem because the resort offers regularly scheduled shuttle service for a reasonable fee. Our 1 bedroom, 2 bath unit was as beautiful, spacious and well equipped as similar units at other Villa Del Palmar properties we've enjoyed. The staff is just wonderful and they took very good care of it, especially the morning waiters at the Market restaurant: most notably Alex, Luis and Abraham. The Activities Director does a FABULOUS job, from organizing activities on site and directing, choreographing and dancing the evening shows. I don't know where the man gets his energy! We enjoyed two excursions arranged though the resort: the Danzante Island Zodiak boat tour, which was a thrilling tour of the islands and their bird residents, along with the abundant sea life, including dolphins that followed our boat. The short snorkeling opportunity was just enough to jump off the boat, see some nice fish and then climb back on (about 30 minutes). The captain of our ship was very knowledgeable and took good care of us. The other excursion was to see the original Spanish Mission from 1697. We enjoyed the ride up the mountain and learning about the history of the area. The church itself is a gem. The food and service at the Danzante Restaurant was excellent, but unless you go for the all-inclusive option, you may find it pricey. We were less enthusiastic about the dinner buffet at the Market restaurant, although the serving staff is a wonderful group of people. We ate at the Italian restaurant only once and it was fine. My two complaints: 1. We were told we could request a time for daily housekeeping service. We asked for between 10 am through noon. This never happened, although I found myself calling and reminding them on a daily basis. They came when they decided to come. Also, the all-inclusive plan is supposed to offer an evening service but this happened only once the week we were there. In contrast. the Villa del Palmar in Cancun always came during the time requested and they never missed an evening service. 2. My biggest problem with Villa del Palmar is that two years in a row, first at the Cancun property last year, then at the Loreto property last week, our credit card information was stolen and fraudulent Internet charges alerted the fraud department of our bank ... both within 1 day of checking in and providing our credit card to the Front Desk. Our bank alerted us, discontinued the cards in both cases and luckily, in both cases, we brought an additional card which we were able to use. We alerted the Front Desk about our suspicion that VDP's system was being hacked, because in over 20 years with the same credit card company, we only were hacked twice and both times within 24 hours of checking into a VDP resort. The Front Desk dismissed our concerns and said it was impossible. We don't think this was a coincidence, so upon returning home we called the Fraud Department of our credit card bank, explained the situation and we were assured they would investigate. So while I thoroughly enjoyed last week's vacation, we returned home last night ... and I spent several hours this morning advising all of the providers of our recurring charges that our credit card was cancelled and replaced. Who wants to arrive at a beautiful resort only to find out 24 hours later that their credit card has been hacked two visits in a row? And then deal with the worry and aggravation over that and ... ... return home and immediately spend hours on the phone and online notifying recurring vendors of the cancellation of the card and establishing the new card information with them? As much as we like VDP, we are reluctant to provide them with our credit card number again. So we'll think it over when our kids offer their week next time.

Top of my list for places to spend week or two. Best treatment of guests ever. Great food all day long, warm clear ocean water, fabulous water tour and snorkling of sorounding wee islands, just a very relaxing, and be sure to visit the wuaint little town of Loreto and maybe go fishing and catch the big one.
Jair worked at the casa mia. My family and I were absolutely happy to have Jair as our waiter. He was very polite, quick service, worked hard and still have a smile on his face! He is the kind of employee that this resort makes my family come back! His hospitality was awesome and service was exceptional! I hope to see him next year when we come back! Jonard Aquino Room 4135A

We had the pleasure of staying at the Villa Del Palmar Resort in Loreto Mexico. Beautiful resort, the perfect atmosphere for relaxation. We were taken care of fabulously by the activities staff and staff in the restaurants. The poolside service was slow and lacking except for the day we had Roberto, he was awesome. We had exceptional service from our waiter Carlos and he made our stay more memorable with his smiling face and great attitude. So many of the staff here Work so hard so we can relax and itâ€™s greatly appreciated. Also the bartender Alan who made great drinks, one my Dad named â€˜The Alan Specialâ€™. Jair in Casa Mia is always working hard and smiling. We would definitely return to this destination!

Villa del Palmar is the place to go if you really want to unplug and relax...and not need a vacation from your vacation. It's secluded enough to feel truly recharged and away from it all but not so isolated that there aren't things to do...the highlights for me were the Sabila Spa hydrotherapy experience and hanging out by the amazing pools. And if you're a golfer, I'd imagine that it's paradise. We walked up to the 17th hole and the view is just insane! Everyone at the resort is incredibly kind and accommodating. I can't wait to come back with my husband and enjoy some more R&R.
