Love Cabo
Dec 30 2016
My daughter and I were very pleased with every aspect of our trip to Cabo! The hotel is gorgeous all of the staff friendly and helpful. The food was over the top especially at Bella California and we cannot wait to return to this beautiful place!

Beautiful view, helpful staff

The hotel was beautiful but the beds are crazy, double beds for adults is just too small. The bell hop's were fast and did a great job, other then the day of our arrival, took a little longer then average to get the bags, had to wait an hour.

I will never recommend or go to any of the Villa Hotels, it took 3 rooms before we got one that was ok, it took the whole day so we lost a whole day of fun in the sun, Never Never Again!!!!!
Jun 15 2016
Horrible experience, I travel all the time and will not be using Apple Vacations again, there was never a rep available the whole trip, the hotel mgr told us they are never there, this was a big mistake choosing this vacation and very costly, everyday someone else would say how terrible the place was also......Our suitcase went flying out of the back of the van that we had on our way home and is totally damaged the door opened because it was never securely shut....from beginning to end...utter hell.

Wrong Accomimodations!!!
Jun 30 2014
When I booked my vacation it was understood that I requested a deluxe suite, like I had on my last vacation. When I arrived I had a queen size bed when I know I requested a King. I didn't get the requested suite nor was I offered and up grade. I called apple twice and never got a response from anyone at Apple Vacations. Let it be known from this day forward I will not use or recommend Apple Vacations. I paid in full at the time of my reservation, I was very unhappy with my accommodations.

Worth it if you don't mind the timeshare push
Jun 09 2014
The hotel was great! It was on the beach, had three pools, lots of food choices, and great rooms. We were treated very well there. My kids, aged nine and twelve loved it. The only drawback was the hard sell to attend a timeshare seminar. It seemed everyone was being pushed into it.

My travel rep did a great job in booking and the transfers were great. However the hotel was not what I expected. The food quality was not great, the "all-inclusive" aspect was not effecient and frankly a waste of money. I would not blame my travel rep for this, probably my fault for not researching it further. We were co-mingling with non all inclusive guests, so the benefit of being all inclusive was not a benefit at all. You still had to sign everytime you wanted a drink, this includes coffee, orange juice and bottled water. The restaraunt selection was very poor. Our room was excellent and the facilities were clean and well maintained.

Hard sell, noisy, and bad food
Nov 06 2013
When we first arrived, we were assaulted by a variety of salespeople pretending to be our concierge, etc. They were trying to sell us timeshares, tours. Our room was good. The all inclusive was only at our hotel, even though there were 3 in the property, and was limited to a sports bar, buffet, and Italian restaurant. Food quality was poor. The pool area was quite crowded, so difficult to relax. At night, the shows were quite loud and late, so hard to sleep, since they were outdoors. However, I want to mention that after 2 days, we contacted our Apple rep and he was fantastic-moved us to a different hotel, which was great-we loved our room, the food was great, the pools were large and peaceful and relaxing. He also recommended activities, which we enjoyed-different than what the personnel at Villa del Palmar recommended. The vacation was salvaged, but this original place was so bad, my husband wanted to go home immediately. I thank you for helping us have a great vacation for the last 5 days.

Most screwed up system ever for an all-inclusive. Had to sign for every drink or eat. Absolutly ridiculous. Couldn't just get a drink or food. Had to wait forever in THEIR system. Orders were generally wrong and long delayed. One waitress for all beach area. STUPID STUPID So if someone was to have 50 beers during their stay of a week needs to sign over and over and over.

Best Vaction in 10 years
Sep 14 2011
This hotel was not the most elegant hotel as far as fixtures go but the staff was the best of any hotelI have ever stayed at and we where there for 14 days and NOT once did we ever have a problem. Our bathroom light went out and I called the front desk to have someone change it and I'm telling you within 5 minutes the repair man was there with not one type of bulb but 3 just in case. We didn't like where the T.V. was when we first checked in. What did they do move all our baggage into another room with T.V. in the right place and all with a smile. I'm telling you the service was above and be on any we ever had. Pool girl would meet us ever day and check if we needed anything and get our towels for us. Pool was always in top shape, food was great as well. I would recomend this hotel and for sure we will be there again in March,2012 and again and again. We just loved our 2wk stay. Oh and the weather was just as perfect. The only problem we had was the resturant named the Office was closed until Oct.and the owner takes all her employees on vaction. So how great is she! But we know she closed from August 13th until Oct. So we will vaction when she's open. If you have not been there you must try!! Let me add I do own a time share on the marina but will not be staying there. It will be villa del palma from here foreward. Thank You for reading and please check the place out.

We recommend this location if you love laid back. Very mellow place with friendly staff and enough to do if you have to move. Excellent snorkeling and Spa. I particularly enjoyed the food and staff at the Danzante restaurant and The Market restaurant. Thumbs up to Gregorio and Marcel who provided excellent service to my family and I. I would also give a thumbs up to Roberto who was our guide during our ATV tour. He was great!!

Fantastic Resort!

This was our first time staying in Loreto. It was very tranquil and beautiful. The main town is about 40 kilometers from the resort. We took the boat to the island of Coronado for snorkeling. The town is quaint and full of history. If you are tired of the noise of other resorts then this is where we suggest you visit for your next trip. The rooms are spacious and the staff is very great!

Villa del Palmar is one of those places that is so good that your will want to keep it a secret. The natural surroundings are so exquisite that Jacques Cousteau considered one of his favorite places to be. It more species of marine life than anywhere except the Galapagos islands, with the exception sharks. Walking trail, bikes and tours of the village give landlubbers plenty to do. And the Danzante bay golf course is one of the most stunningly beautiful tracks int hew world. Go to hole 17 at sunrise and you'll find golfers, hikers, and more taking in the view of one of the most picturesque holes in existence. The staff is friendly, the food is delicious and plentiful and spring for the deluxe suite with the view and a hot tub. And don't be selfish...tell a friend.

The Elite desk, including Tina, Iliana, Julian, and Ki Ki were absolutely fantastic. Among other things they arranged all our activities and plan a spectacular 18th day party for our son. All of our waiters including Miguel, Roberto, Mannie, Victor Hugo and Francisco Castro were fantastic. and we can not say enough wonderful things about Hector, Tanya and all the staff at the gym and Spa. We love and will return many times in the future.

Our favorite resort at our favorite destination, the Islands of Loreto

My husband and I have always avoided any Time Share talks or presentations. We finally bought into the Villa Group because we are so in love with this resort. We have gone on just about all the tours and love the fishing, the abundance of marine life and the unique beauty of the many rugged islands surrounded by the peaceful Sea of Cortez. The accommodations and the location and views are amazingly beautiful, but the staff is what won our hearts.... We just got back from our third stay and are ready to go back! From the warm greetings at the front door by Uziel, the hugs by Dulce in the lobby, the excursion staff Carlos and Roberto, followed by the incredible wait staff at Casa Mia lead by Edgar, Benito, Elum, Jair and topped off by the incredible and nicest Bartender in the World, Cesar! So many others are also ready to help with a smile and impeccable service. Of course our favorite employee and waiter extraordinaire is Danzante Restaurant’s Marco Carvajal! Our outstanding dinner at the restaurant was topped only by Marco’s suggestions and great service. He performed a beautiful Flaming Spanish Coffee service at our table and it was absolutely amazing. It was one of the highlights of our week. We are returning in August with our daughter and her boyfriend and can’t wait to show them this jewel of a resort!
