"Excellent vacation!"

The people at Villa del Palmar in Loreto are so nice! I have never met a nicer staff! They all learn your name so it feels like home when you are walking around. Misael always made a point to see you in the day! Lupita always was so welcoming when figuring out where we wanted to eat that day. Manny at the pool bar was always on top of things with getting drinks and food. Alma was excellent and helped upgrade our room as did Misael. Reny gave a great boat tour! Excellent experience and I can't wait to come back!!


"This was a fantastic get away during the craziness of the Pandemic."

Not being sure of how this would go, I can personally tell you the Resort made us feel so safe and made our trip great. All of the employees starting with Misael Chan and Alma were great. Thanks Manny for taking great care of me at the Pool and David at the Beach. The restaurants were all awesome and the evening entertainment was still top notch. This is exactly what we needed. I know that many people are worried about flying. However I would say that From the Airport to the final destination everything felt completely safe. I am ready to go back!


"My home away from home!"

Mexico has always been my happy place but Villa Del Palmar is my slice of heaven. We were fortunate to take a week during this pandemic and leave our worries behind. Everything from the airport, airline, shuttle to resort and the fantastic Villa Del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa was top notch/5 star clean! Everyone is doing their part to make sure we can get back to normal during this. Upon arriving at the resort, Alma was friendly and welcoming to get our vacation and relaxation started! Misael Chan, club manager was amazing and friendly while he and Alma worked their magic to upgrade our room, much appreciated!! Janero, the front desk manager and Sahariana the club specialist work together to make our stay one we will never forget. The staff/family at the resort, smile with their eyes and pull you into their resort with friendship and hospitality like none other! Lupita was an amazing hostess, Manny and George at the pool, Marco at Casa Mia's remembered me from 2018 and my signature beverage:) Eduardo at the Market, Duvis the activities manager had his staff keeping us busy and entertained with aquarobics, bingo, trivia and nightly 5 star shows! I can't wait to go back and bring more family and grand babies to meet our family(the staff) at Villa Del Palmar! I miss you!!!


"Post Lockdown Getaway"

We live in San Diego and, like the rest of the state, have been in quarantine for the last couple of months. We have really been looking forward to getting the family out of the house for a little R&R in Mexico. The obvious concern was around the amount of risk we were taking to get that break. Well we just got back and our trip to Loreto and it could not have been better. So many safe guards in place to ensure safety. Thermal checks in and out of airport and upon arrival at hotel. Hand sanitizers at every entry point and high touch points throughout the facility. All employees wore masks for our safety. We even golfed a couple of times and the course is immaculate. They have all the same safety measures in place that you would find at a course in the states, with rake-less bunkers and upside down cups for the holes to prevent having to dig your hand in there. All in all it was a wonderful week long getaway. I could go on and on about how great the staff is, but I’m sure there are dozens of write-ups about that already. They truly are fantastic. If you’re looking for that first post-quarantine getaway, stop your search and book your ticket to Villa Del Palmar in Loretto.


"Love this place"

Loreto is a one of a kind, off the beaten path with no solicitors. The spa is to die for, the food is excellent, and the staff is like no other. Kind, caring, personable, and helpful. I'd go back in a heartbeat.


"An Absolute Treasure"

We love our stays at the Villa Del Palmar in Loreto. This hidden gem is quiet, relaxing and unexpectedly at the forefront of food trends and hospitality.


"Great Family Friendly Resort - AMAZING GOLF"

This is our 3rd time at the Villa del Palmar in Loreto and we highly recommend it. We travel with 3 generations and there is something for everyone! 


"Best Kept Secret In Mexico…!!"

If you can handle world class views and are looking for the perfect place to recharge your batteries...Look no further.


"Totally Amazing, Relaxing, Beautiful Place With Best Attentive Staff!!"

We have been coming here yearly for the past seven years (it only opened eight years ago) and each year we love it even more than previously. The staff, the location, the facilities and the ambience are all 10+. 


"Incredibly Relaxing 2nd Visit, as Great at the 1st"

Came back a year later and things are just as beautiful and relaxing as a year ago. Some overall hotel/property improvements since, service is still great, food is excellent and activities are amazing. Very kid-friendly atmosphere.

Had phenomenal fishing, and ATVs through Danzante tours, thanks to Carlos. Daughters caught 10 deep water fish with Captain Juan on the Danzante Panga and we had excellently prepared Dorado at the Marketplace Restaurant from what we caught. All of us with the kids had a fun and safe ATV tour with Rio and made tortillas with Maria at the end of the ride.

Had a great golf orientation for my daughters with the Pro Danny, who made time to do some show and tell/demo with them.

Manny and Jorge were always on top of things at the pool and the activities team and staff at all three restaurants were always enthustastic, and had top notch service and entertainment on tap.

The sales visit was pleasant and not pressured at all. Appreciate that approach by Karen, Randy and James. Can't wait to come back again.


"Each trip we are even more impressed"

 Our room is exceptionally clean and it feels like home! The maid service is amazing, they are sweet and kind and ready to please. The Reception is highly knowledgeable and Sahariana did a fabulous job finding the right room for us! The activities staff lead by Duvis is unbelievable...they are so talented and work very hard. The nightly shows are wonderful, everything they do is amazing...from kayaking, to Mexican bingo, to water aerobics..their smiles and laughter are contagious! Pool bar service....oh yeah! Manny and Roberto we so enjoy you...thanks for everything! The restaurant staffs are gracious, kind and knowledgeable....the food exceptional! The caring and love that is served is beyond words. My heartfelt thanks to Oscar Torres for going out of his way to make my food experience so great. He is the kindest man and cares so much for his guests.. Thank you to all the waiters.... can't name all of you but a special thanks to Marcel and Candelaria at Casa Mia, Luis at the Golf, Abraham, Rafael. We had dinner at Danzante which was superb but missed seeing Gerardo..hopefully next time you will be there! You are always in our hearts...we love!!

"A very unique and beautiful setting"

This was our fourth time to visit Danzante Bay and the Islands of Loreto. In our opinion, Villa del Palmar is the crown jewel of the Villa Group offerings. It features a wonderful, tranquil setting with a unique desert environment and a beautiful beach with safe water access. Major strengths include many fine and friendly people working as staff, excellent food and restaurants, a spectacular setting and excellent room accommmodations.If you are looking for a serene setting where natural marine and desert life abound, this is your place. If you are looking for an American mall in Mexico with lots of shopping, this is probably not it. We hope to return again and again in the future.


"That's why we keep coming back!"

As always, it is the best place where we can spend our vacations. This time we came with two other couples, and we tried a lot of new things (We even went to the town!) Samantha at the lobby was a dear!

The boys had fun with Danny at the golf course, and a lovely blonde girl Claudine from Spa was amazing as she asked for the girls to treat and spoil us. The beach party was amazing and José was really funny as our waiter. 

Can’t wait to come back

"Above and Beyond Expectations"

There is something really special about this particular resort. Nothing but smiles and new friends to be made. It might be the beautiful location and the fact that the waters are protected. Nothing but blue water and so many fish. It also could be the amazing food and drinks made to perfection. 

I personally think it was something more than that for me. It was the people that made it so special. 


"Dolphins galore, good food, beautiful sunsets and exceptional service!"

First of all, I can't say enough about the staff that waited on us throughout our trip! I have to specifically mention Abraham, Alex, Roberto, Rafa, Luis, Benjamin, Manny, Miguel and Armando. They treated us like royalty and made our experience very special!!! Because of them, we will absolutely return to this lovely spot.


"Lovely resort"

Resort is beautiful and staff are lovely! From the moment we arrived to when we (sadly) had to leave, we felt taken care of. Food is great with lots of options. The beach is amazing and warm, and the pools are clean and relaxing. We had an awesome time here! I also love that you can travel with your dog(s) here! 3 floors of the hotel are dog friendly :)

"The most amazing hidden treasure!!!"

This was the most amazing vacation. We were treated like kings and queens during our entire stay.All the staff we encountered were amazing and truly wanted our stay to be the best. Everything from the pools, to the beach, the restaurants, the entertainment and the amazing spa was exceptional. Did I mention the sunrises, sunsets, stargazing, fun and relaxation? This place has it can stay busy or just sit back and experience total relaxation. I would love to give a personal shout out to some employees that made our stay amazing. Look them up if you get a chance to visit. Antonio, Adela, Ruth, Abigail, Irene, Rosie and Diana made the spa the best experience! Can't wait to go back.
