I don’t even know where to start, this place is all around absolute perfection!! We just got back from a 9 day stay in playa staying at The Palm, this trip was our tenth time visiting PDC but first time at The Palm, and we will never stay anywhere else going forward!! The location is perfect, beautiful, the rooms are spacious and clean, the beds are super comfy. And then, there’s the rooftop pool/bar… which is STUNNING. Plenty of lounge chairs, ocean view, great food and drinks, very friendly staff. And my personal favorite, a hammock that sits just above water level where I spent most of my time reading and wondering how I got so lucky to be in a place so perfect. The staff is exceptional all around, with a HUGE special shout-out to the concierge, Sandra, who is so lovely and helpful with anything you could possibly need, and when you leave you feel like you’ve made a life long friend with her. I can not recommend this place enough. By far our new favorite place to stay in Playa, and we’ve stayed at a LOT of locations. Do yourself a favor and book your stay there immediately, you will not regret it. We can not wait to go back ASAP!

Perfect location. The room was very big but very plain. No a single decoration, it lacks charm. It is not a 4 star hotel i say more like 3 str. The place is clean but hours of the rooftop and restaurants are horrible.

This hotel has historically been my preferred choice when staying in PDC. Several issues this time: no hot water for the shower in evening AND morning. When I told staff, they just shrugged and said contact Expedia. Well here you go…. Next, I couldn’t sleep until 2am because the noise from the clubs was so loud - they put me in a room facing the street. Is this the room upgrade really? The hot tub on rooftop bar — no hot water either. Also first time I’ve seen the roof top bar and pool area empty. I wonder why?

We have visited the Palms multiple times and LOVED the roof pool. So we decided to finally stay here. Jamie, a pool staff member, was beyond amazing and then.....that was it. Not only was there staff dragging such loud roof top patio furniture across our ceiling at 8am, but there was NO hot water. AT ALL. The final straw came when checking out, the lobby staff stated there was an "issue with the sheets. I think it's blood". I laughed and said "yes, I had on self-tanner" (cause who is tan in January?). He said the sheets were "ruined". I informed him bleach would fix it. I had seen the sheets when we checked out......the slightest tinge of light brown. Clearly tanner. He brought out the sheets from under the desk, handed them to a bellboy who then proceeded to attempt to wash them in the lobby bathroom sink and then announce that they would need to be replaced. I was so certain he was kidding but he wasn't. I kept stating that bleach in a washing machine would fix them but he continued speaking over me and demanding $50 because "We will need to send out the sheets. They are ruined!". I was so furious I never got his name and I as such as I wanted to say allllllll the bad words and storm off, I'm not about to have the police come ( in Mexico!) and who know what could occur. Not only was this totally insane, he was SO rude and mean. I know people spill ketchup on sheets ( or bodily fluids). I was too dumbfounded to argue. I will spend my life knowing no one should go here.
