We travelled with friends who have been vacationing here for years. This has now become our favourite vacation spot. Villa del Palmar offers a first class resort with exceptional customer service, outstanding cuisine at their restaurants and an extremely safe environment. I would highly recommend this resort for all ages

This was our second stay at La Estancia, and for the most part, it was as good as the first time. Several of the staff members we met on our first visit, were still there and made every effort to welcome us back. It is generally a lovely resort to relax and enjoy the good service. From the time you arrival, until departure, the staff tries their best to make your stay the best for you.
One issue we had, this time, was the food in La Casona restaurant was not up to previous level. We had steaks that despite being sent back twice, were still way too rare and shrimp, one night that was past its prime. The wait staff tried to remedy situation, but apparently there is new kitchen staff. Hopefully, this will improve in time. Other restaurants are also available at sister resort.
Our room was kept very clean and was quiet. Poolside, Felix and Gabriel, worked hard at keeping us comfortable and we enjoyed the waiters and food at poolside restaurant.
We would certainly consider a third visit in the future.

Lots to do or just relax. Staff was amazingly helpful and accommodating. Entertainment every night ranging from magic to traditional dances. Food was excellent, lots of variety plus two speciality restaurants (Italian - climate controlled and an open air Mexican restaurant). Beach was huge and miles long, depth of water slowly increases, no big drop off so great for younger and elderly visitors who like to wade in the water. Nice waves for boogy boarding. Two lovely pool areas, one for adults only the other has shallow area for young kids and large activity pool. Lots of organized activities centered around the large pool plus a great series of free bicycle tours. Also, a kids club . Local buss to north side of town (Plaza Las Glorias) is a dollar and another local buss to the town center or the Romantic Zone is another dollar. Free WiFi at Starbucks across the street at shopping plaza. Excellent small hotel where you can really meet people if you want.

This hotel has great service and the rooms are large and comfortable. The staff were very attentive to our needs. Since we had a family group of 14, the hotel located us on one floor adjacent to each other, which was what we asked for. The food is well prepared and all restaurants allow children except the Italian one. We would have liked easier access to the snack bar, which is located closer to the beach than the main tower. I think they used to have the snack bar closer to the lobby, but it was moved due to preparations for the Christmas Eve supper. Also between 5:00 pm, when the snack bar closes, and 6:30 pm, when the restaurants open, the only food available is through room service. The Christmas Eve supper was really excellent, with Mexican folklore entertainment by the pool side.
The rooms have a strange set up with the bath-tub standing out in the room between the shower/toilet area and the sleeping area, which makes it too open for comfort. There were also some plumbing issues is one of our many rooms and no stoppers in the sinks. However, the rooms are very spacious and each has a couch seating area. The mini bar had beer and soft drinks and was restocked each day. There is a jacuzzi on the deck, which is nice to relax in the open.
The beach is clean and lots of fun for boogy boarding. One of our party got hurt is a large wave and the Amerimed doctor was there quickly. I can't say enough for how attentive the doctor (Brenda) was. All turned out well.

We did this as a surprise for my wife's 60th. The hotel treated her like royalty. Great food at the buffet, the Steak House was very good and Krystal was 5 star.
Great room with an ocean view alternated between the pool and the beach. We will be back!!!!!
