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.

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!!!

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

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
JEAN B.
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
ROBERT M.
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.

The property here is so beautiful and the views are amazing. Looking out at Danzante Island from your balcony or just sitting on the beach is so calming. I have been taking out the kayak everyday and beaching it in different spots to go snorkeling, lots of beautiful marine life to see. Will be taking a boat out to the islands tomorrow to go snorkeling also. We did the ATV tour yesterday with Robert & Jony and it was a blast. Not only was it a long tour riding inland and then to the beaches in several areas where I just wanted to stay all day they were very informative. We learned a lot of history and then stopped at a little town to make flour tortillas with Maria who is called Grandma of the town because she had lived there her whole life. It was great to see the simplicity and knowledge on how they utilize things since they have only had running water and electricity for only 7 years. Thank you Mr. Perry for making that happen for them. It is so great to see that family and celebrating life is so important to them. I also want to thank Jorge for taking such good care of us at the beach and pool area. He is so friendly and sweet. I learned a lot about Loreto from him, I enjoyed all of his stories. I do not play golf but I took a tour of the golf course and it is amazing. They told us it just got TPC certificate or approved and I can see why. I will definitely to coming back here.

Paradise! 🌵🌞

We have nothing but good things to say about this resort and staff. The resort is gorgeous and the rooms are light, bright, and clean. The beach was lovely and the water was calm. I kayaked and paddleboarded for the first time and had so much fun! We did the Island tour, which I highly recommend. Ask for Rammses- he was an amazing tour guide. No one felt like snorkeling as it was a bit chilly that day so he took us on a hike on Danzante Island and told us so much history. He was the Best! We also did the ATV tour which was an absolute blast with Robert and Jony and when we return, we will do this one again. Roberto at the activities desk gave us great recommendations. The resort is nestled in a beautiful bay about 40 minutes from town. We were craving peace and tranquility and that is what we found here. No jet skis, no parasailing, no beach vendors, no techno music all day long at the pool. It was heavenly. The food was pretty good. We enjoyed Casa Mia the most because Marco was there. He always made sure everything was just perfect. I can't wait to return. This place is an absolute gem.

The most amazing hidden treasure!!!

This was the most amazing vacation. We were treated like kings and queens during our entire stay.All the staff we encountered were amazing and truly wanted our stay to be the best. Everything from the pools, to the beach, the restaurants, the entertainment and the amazing spa was exceptional. Did I mention the sunrises, sunsets, stargazing, fun and relaxation? This place has it all..you can stay busy or just sit back and experience total relaxation. I would love to give a personal shout out to some employees that made our stay amazing. Look them up if you get a chance to visit. Antonio, Adela, Ruth, Abigail, Irene, Rosie and Diana made the spa the best experience! Can't wait to go back. Gererdo , manager at the Casa Mia Restaurant made our stay the best! Made us the most amazing dinner to celebrate our anniversary! Service with a sincere smile! Eduardo who does the towels at the pool is the most gentle and helpful person. Jerero who manages the lobby goes over and above to be helpful. Carmen, hostess at the restaurants is the sweetest! It was fun helping her to learn English and she was helping us with our Spanish! Ela was also great! Cristal who works in the lobby made our stay exceptional.......... can't wait to go back and see her again! Eduardo and Duvil who do the activites and shows at night were more than fun... gotta love their energy...and their salsa dancing! Manny and Roberto who served us at the pool were so much fun and always kept us fed and hydrated.... best guys ever!! David who serves at the beach was awesome as well! We went scuba diving and had the best trip with Christian Braian teaching us how and Jorge and Antonio keeping us safe! we got to experience the amazing whales as a bonus! Abraham, Luis and Marcel were excellent waiters at the Market Restaurant and Marcos was exceptional at the Casa Mia. You really have to go experience this place for yourselves... I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Best hotel staff I have ever encountered. Room was very nice and balcony was fabulous. Good food and beautiful setting. Multiple pools is a good idea. Nightly shows were entertaining. Resort was quiet which is what we were looking for. Side trips were easy to arrange and interesting. Great fishing trip.

I love this hotel. It's in the middle of Baja California--away from the Cabo crowds by 500+ miles --and on the Sea of Cortez. You have a golf course and the gorgeous Gigante Mountain range to your back and the ocean and islands in front of you. You can tuck yourself away in secluded spots and rooms or join the social life at the 3 or 4 pools and several restaurants. They also have SUP's and canoes and fishing, etc. Yes, it's Baja--so now and then things go wrong--the water quits working for 30 minutes or they run out of arugula, etc. But if you just enjoy the rural solitude and beauty of it all--Hemmingway called it God's Aquarium here--have a beer or margarita and a massage--all will be lovely. I have been here probably 10 times over 7 years and I highly recommend it. I travel a lot--world-wide. I tend toward either low-key like here or full on luxury like an Aman resort.
