All-suite Los Cabos hotel enchants with whale water slide, spa services

The all-suite resort honors contemporary design driven by sleek furniture and luxurious bedding. Active travelers take advantage of the full roster of nightly entertainment, spa services and restaurants on the sprawling property.

Rooms
Crisp lines, striking sun-shaped mirrors and two-tone wood furniture capture a modern feel in Villa Del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa Los Cabos. Plum-colored coverlets and throw pillows contrast well with plush white comforters, while espresso-trimmed cabinets pair with blond wood drawers. A collection of 460 suites accommodates groups of multiple sizes with welcome extras like sofa beds, entertainment centers, breakfast bars and patios or terraces overlooking the water.
Dining
Traditional Mexican dishes mingle with Italian fare at Las Tortugas, whose themed buffets, folk dancing and casino nights add to the ambiance. The eatery shows off sparkling tiered pools from both indoor and outdoor dining rooms. Bella California dishes up California and Italian alongside views of the Sea of Cortez. For grab-and-go meals at Villa Del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa Los Cabos, Palmita Deli and Palmita market provide fuel in the form of sandwiches, salads and pizza.
Recreation
Lush palm trees dot the Villa Del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa Los Cabos grounds near the expansive outdoor pool, whose showpiece is Willy the Whale, a giant water slide that has been completely refinished with litmus stones. Elsewhere on the property, guests can enjoy facials, massages and hydrotherapy treatments at Desert Spa or join fellow guests for water aerobics, volleyball and bingo. A supervised kids club engages the tykes while parents unwind on the flagstone pool deck or stroll 20 minutes to downtown Los Cabos.

Great Location

The resort offers just about everything someone would want on a beach vacation. Beautiful beach and tons of activities. Very good restaurants on site and a taxi ride away from town where many additional restaurants can be found. The resort falls short of a 5 star rating for several things, mostly minor which wouldn't ruin a vacation.

Disappointing family vacation

mold smell in the rooms. situation improved when we moved to upper floor. Two rather small pools, the bigger was closed for renovation half way through our stay! Hotel staff - not too welcoming. not very responsive to our requests. beach - easy access from the hotel, but not welcoming for young kids. Nicer beach for family further from the hotel.

Great Family Trip with a few issues

After visiting and greatly enjoying Villa Del Arco at Cabo in March 2013 we decided to take our kids and grandkids there for a vacation. Del Arco was unable to accommodate us so we booked at Villa Del Palmar. While we had a wonderful time, Palmar is not up to the level of Arco. Arco’s reciprocal all inclusive dining option with Palmar was not allowed from Palmar to Arco. This limited dining options greatly. Palmar has the Bella California restaurant which was quite good, but was the same menu every night - a bit tiring after a week. The other options are a nightly buffet - which was okay at best - and a sports bar with a very limited menu. Food service: Fair to good. At Bella it was professional, and ran from timely to quite slow. Trying to get a drink refill (even iced tea) took an extremely long time and many times we just gave up and left. By the way, even though we were “all inclusive” which they state includes tips, we tipped quite a bit more. Good news or bad news: it almost always took a long time to get your bill to sign after you were done with your meal. At the Sports Bar service was poor. At one lunch there were 3 tables of people waiting for service. Not one server came to any of us to see what we would like. After about 15 minutes we went and found someone to come take our orders. Drink service: Dismal. I believe that part of the problem is that they don’t have enough staff. The pool we used usually only had one server. Catching their eye to order was an ordeal and it took an extremely long time to receive whatever you ordered. I hate to think this was on purpose but I wondered if service for all inclusive guests was purposefully slow to limit your consumption of food and beverage. Accomodations: Excellent. A huge thank you to Oscar at the check in desk. Upon check in we had 5 rooms that were scattered around the resort. When he realized that we were a family, he offered us 2 suites in place of these rooms that were much, much better. Our maid service (Eunise) was also excellent. Ambiance: Palmar seemed to have a younger crowd than Arco. As such, it was quite a bit more active and loud. Every afternoon there were games at the pool with a mega decibel loudspeaker blasting a whistle and chanting things such as “belly flop belly flop belly flop”. If you’re into that, you’ll love it. If you’re not… They also advertised an all adult pool and in fact had signs indicating such. Unfortunately, these signs were ignored by children (and their parents) and there was no effort by the staff to request children to move to the family pools. This made all the pools chaotic. Customer Service: Excellent. The staff was very accommodating and helped us with any of our needs (trips to town, activities, etc) Overall the visit was good. But if you’re looking for a bit more upscale and quieter stay, I would recommend Del Arco.

My stay at the villa del palmar

From the minute we checked in we were greeted with Courteous and helpful staff. We were given a free room upgrade which put our room directly in front of the beach not 50 feet away . AMAZING!! Our flight landed late so we arrived at the hotel at around 1:00am And because of the 24 hour room service we were able to order room service at 2:00 am and the food was incredible!! The rooms are great and the beds are really comfortable. I would absolutely stay here again and again.

Needs more staff! Especially around the pool area you either have to hunt someone down or wait 20-30 mins to get your drink.

Beach Getaway

The main problem with this resort is that it was built so close to the water that throughout the day (during high tide) the access to the beach was closed! That sounds like very poor planning on the part of the architects who designed this place. Also perhaps because it is oriented towards families and children it is very noisy throughout the day with loud speakers projecting games and commercial music throughout the day.

travelling with kids

we stayed at this hotel for a night. They take your credit card and make you sign a blank invoice when you are checking in. That said, this hotel operates on charging for almost a step you make in their property. There is not even a free breakfast. And this is supposed to be Mexico. Room had a moldy smell. Sea is unswimmable for kids (huge waves), and no special pool for small kids. Will not recommend for a family with kids.

Great time at the Villa Palmar!

My wife and I took our 2 teenage boys to Villa Palmar for my oldest son's high school graduation. It was our family's second trip to the resort. We had a great time! Pros - location (right on the beach, less than a mile from downtown#, cleanliness, service, quality of food, fitness room, pool, kid friendly, small grocery store on the property; Cons - WIFI is $12 a day if you want it #they do have a hospitality room where it is available for free#, food options #quality is good, but there are only 2 restaurants on the property - a sports bar and an open air restaurant on the beach). Overall, we had a great trip and will be going back!
