Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

excellent staff, service and hospitality. nice beach and warm water. beautiful golf cores . Family environment and peaceful location. every night there is a different shows and entertainment. Great facility, very safe, clean. Excellent Spa and massage. Loreto town, also has lot to offer with its architect and structural down town. There three islands around the resort for snorkeling with crystal clear water and color fish around the rocks.

The setting in a virtually private bay in the Sea of Cortez (Gulf of California) is spectacular. The accommodations, the service, and food are first rate. While getting there might be a challenge for some, it is all worth the trouble. There is plenty to do, from golf, snorkeling, outings to nearby islands to pristine beaches, off-road treks and more but just relaxing at the beach or pool with your favorite drink no less satisfying. Great for couples or families with children.

Loreto is amazing! The Villa del Palmar in Loreto is truly wonderful. A little piece of heaven for sure! The service is phonomenial and everyone is happy and kind. No place like it anywhere! If you want to relax, eat amazing food, enjoy lounging by the pool or snorkeling in the bay...with almost no one on the beach around you...then go to Loreto! Seeing dolphins, whales and all the beautiful sea life is also a huge plus...the golf couse is beautiful and all the sunsets are simply breathtaking!

Let's just be honest. This resort is a 40 minute bus ride from the town of Loreto. Not only that, they charge you $10 per person to take the shuttle and they don't even drop you off in town. The drop you off at the Hotel Santa Fe and then you get to walk 10 minutes to town. The shuttle is also limited to 20 people, so if you don't sign up ahead of time you might not have a ride. The above being said, the resort is gorgeous. The rooms were gigantic and clean. Maid service every day and they were very attentive. The resort has a few pools all right next to one another. There is pool side service, but only until 4ish as then the help disappears. The food was excellent everywhere on site, but the food at Danzante Find Dining was out of this world. The service, food and atmosphere were all tremendous. Definitely go here.

All employees are super friendly and efficient, the food is wonderful, especially the breakfast, the resort is very clean!. Our tour with Danzante Tours was great, Paul made it very fun. We got to see all kind of fish, and even had time to hike! We are already planning to go back!

Excellent staff and facility . It's hard to believe there a place like this so secluded. We saw this place being built and as a builder myself was amazed at the quality of the project. We also own a boat and one day came into the bay and anchored up in shallow water and waded in to shoe, we were approached by security as soon as we hit the beach. Noone is getting into this place undetected. Very safe. Also they have this tent set up which my wife and I stayed on our 40th anniversary. Right on the beach with hot tub on the lanai. Absolutely incredible. Thanks VDP. The Michauds

I absolutely loved everything about the Resort. The room was spacious. It had a well stocked kitchenette. The property was ocean front and was a close walk to the Marina. My only complaints are having to pay for wifi, the food and drinks were expensive and the room had a little smell of dampness. But even these things did not stop us from having an amazing vacation. I can't wait to come back!

We LOVED it! Rooms were big with beautiful views. Pools were awesome! Beach & hiking trails were wonderful! Totally recommend it! The customer service is outstanding! We would love to go again soon! The food was excellent and many options. Ramon at the beach was very friendly and helpful with out kayaking. My kids loved it too! (ages 10, 11, & 17).

We are owners in the Villa Group properties but this was our first time to Loreto and the property on Dazante Bay. What an incredible location right on Dazante Bay! This is a very secluded location and the surroundings are pristine with no crowds or outside distractions. The resort is fronted by a nice beach with swimming, good snorkeling, kayaks, paddle boards and beach front hiking trails. The service was top notch at every turn and the food was good. There is a golf course that is not yet finished but the 11 holes you can play are outstanding and the 17th is a must see even if you don't play. The spa is full service and very nice as well. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation at a beautiful location this is it. If you are looking for lots of night life and activities off sire, this is not the place for you. We can't wait to come back!

I never imagined how beautiful and relaxing being at Villa Del Palmar Loreto would be. Loved that the hotel has low lighting at night so that you can see the stars in the sky. All the employees at the hotel were great. Miguel Lince the room division manager helped out and made sure my stay was perfect.
