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.

Close but not convenient

The room was okay and what we expected for the price-if you are not doing all inclusive the food is over priced and tastes the same in every restaurant--again we are talking $60 for 3 of us for breakfast, $100 for dinner and food is blah. The hotel is too far from downtown to walk and the taxi is $9 each way, $14 to marina. The time share hard sale is distracting and irritating. So all in all we enjoyed our time, but wouldn't return as we like to enjoy different restaurants and the transportAtion makes it very expensive in a hurry and food on site is very "cruise" like! Lastly we were flagged down by a waiter asking for a tip even after horrible service--while it's "not a cash resort" be prepared to have cash on hand as you can't always tip your server on your bill (warranted or not). Internet service was horrible! Could not get in room at all, had to roast on patio to retrieve msgs!

Do the pirate cruise if you have kids-great service and fun time! Look in gringo gazette for 30% off coupon. Avoid booking trips and excursions thru hotel and call directly for best deal-also walk down Medano Beach for glass boat taxi to lovers beach, arch!

All Inclusive, not so much

My experience was ok. I would not return. Overall it was a below average experience. Highlights below: -I don't have kids, but this a family oriented placed with lots of kids running around. This is great if you have a family -They make you sign a receipt for everything. This got very very annoying. -Everything shuts down at 10:30, including your "all-inclusive" rights. -Rooms are mediocre -Service is slightly above average. -Beach was nice, but rough waters. -Pool ambiance was lively.

Great Hotel, Exceptionally Terrible Staff

From when we arrived at Villa del Palmar, I knew I was in for a trip. Initially, at check in, we were told it would be a $200 security deposit on the room because we were paying with a debit card instead of credit. Then, the lady at the front desk completely changer her story and then said it would be $500 instead of the original $200. Then, when asked why she had originally said $200, she refuted the idea that she had ever said $200 and that it had always been $500. Our check in was behind us and we were off to the room. We had a great location and they did accommodate us to allows us to stay on the same floor as a few of our friends. The rooms were nice enough, not enough outlets though. Our A/C worked when it felt like it, sometimes we would wake up and it would be 60 degrees in the room, and other times we would wake up and it was sweltering hot. Room service was also a hit or miss. One time, we were looking for a lighter or matches and when we called room service they told us to find it ourselves at a bar, even though all the bars in their own hotel were closed. Great customer service! At checkout, I was told the refund to my account for the security deposit, minus the room service charges, would take 5-7 days to show up in my account due to the whole international transfer. I waited 9 days without seeing anything in my account before using the email provided when I checked out to contact the hotel. I did not receive a reply for over 24 hours so I sent two more emails and decided to try my luck at calling someone. After calling the Villa Group toll-free number, I got transferred to Villa del Palmar's front desk. The person I spoke to there seemed unable to even find anything out about my account. She then asked me if she could call back in 5 to 10 minutes after she talked to her manager. I waited 45 minutes before calling back. I then talked to a different person who was then also unable to give me any real reason as to why I still hadn't seen my money. I was then told the same thing, this time to wait 10 minutes. I did not receive a phone call for two hours, but, much to my amazement I was pleasantly surprised when the man on the other end of the phone told me he received a call from his boss, and my money was on its way and it would take an additional 5-7 days. Yesterday I finally received my refund, but to my dismay it was over $100 short of what I was expecting. I've called again today and after being hung up on twice I was finally able to talk to someone and find out that they charged me extra to clean blood off the sheets. It only took two hours of my time and numerous phone calls to find out something they should of sent me earlier. If we all do a Cabo trip again next spring break, I will be sure to avoid all of the Villa hotels and hopefully steer my friends away from choosing Villa del Palmar. Try you luck elsewhere!

Wonderful getaway

My husband and I took this trip and met up with other friends, all of us experiencing Cabo for the first time together. The other couple was at another hotel, a higher-end chain, and actually preferred our hotel. Easy check-in, curteous and helpful staff, room was great, food was great, pools were wonderful, and the beach was lovely. We DID partake in the timeshare presentation at Villa Del Arco, sister property 2 doors down, which we were upfront about NOT buying into and at one point, I wasn't happy with the sales technique...but it's sales so you have to expect that. However, we got a bunch of perks out of it. We visited the arch, a MUST see, walked through town mutliple times, etc. Taxis incredibly clean and nice - even to the point of finding and returning a personal item accidentally left behind the same night. My husband and I have already decided that if we go back to Cabo, a good possibility, we would definitely look at Palmar again, great experience.

If you go to Cabo, go see the Arch. A beautiful sight, and being able to walk the sand between the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean is an amazing thing.

Nice for Price

The hotel is average for any "resort/beach" area. Good amenities, very nice staff, great view of ocean, clean #but older#, over all a decent value. Things I didn't like, no bar you can sit at out side to socialize #a bar but not to sit at# and only serves pizza in the evenings, and no swim up bar. It is only a 15-20 minute walk into town but not a nice walk, I never felt unsafe by any means but I can see where some people could.

Villa Del Palmar

The room had a musty smell when the air conditioning was on. Good work out facilities and tennis courts. Great beach, good restaurants. 20 minute walk to town not well lighted. Could, however take taxi or public bus.

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.
