A piece of paradise with an amazing staff!

Chris H on Jul 21, 2024

This place is like an oasis in the middle of a picturesque desert landscape. The accommodations are luxurious and well-maintained. But what really makes this place special is the staff. By the end of our stay we felt like we made new friends. They were all incredible, but would like to give a shoutout to a special few: At the Market restaurant: Manuel, Joshua, Oved, and manager Angel. At Casa Mia restaurant: Candelaria. The Activities team put on wonderfully entertaining shows every night. The staff in the Elite Lounge saw to all of our needs. We are looking forward to going back soon!

The Amazing Captain Reny

Carol J on Jul 19, 2024

We spent a fabulous afternoon learning about the history of the area and enjoying snorkeling off the islands. We saw so many species of fish, it felt like we were swimming in an aquarium. Reny is a joyful captain with great knowledge of the land and sea. We will take this tour again when we return!

Retirement Retreat

Roam661487 on Jul 15, 2024

We had such a wonderful experience at the resort. Beautiful staff members. Every member was friendly and welcoming. The theme nights were fun. The resort performers were fun, uplifting and talented. Food was amazing. We did take part in a few excursions. ATV with JoseAngel and Abraham. Both guides were very knowledgeable. I appreciate JoseAngels passion for the National Park. Abraham took extra precautions to assure that all of us were safe during the ATVing. A few of our group went fishing and they were very successfully thanks to their guide. The fish they caught were prepared in several different dishes that we enjoyed for dinner that evening. On our last full day we all went snorkeling with Reni as our guide. We were given some history about native culture and the islands that make up the National Park. Snorkeling was amazing. So much sea life in a very tranquil environment. While traveling to our second snorkeling location Reni found a small pod of dolphins who were willing to play with the boat. Such a unique experience. Travel was extremely easy to and from the airport. We felt safe and secure with in the resort at all times. Looking forward to our next visit.

Once again, our snorkeling adventures were an outstanding part of our visit to Villa Del Palmar Islands of Loreto. Starting with excellent desk assistance from Alan and Juan, we were able to secure our preferred snorkeling days. Monday, we joined Captian Juan Mendee on his fishing vessel with another couple. We experienced dolphins, eels, and hundreds of thousands of fish. Lunch even included my pre booked gluten-free request. We had such a great time we immediately went to Juan and Alan to schedule another trip. Friday, we were plesently surprised to find Captian Reny ready to guide us. We have had Captian Reny on tours in previous years and find him incredibly knowledgeable about the sea animals in the National Marine Park. This trip was also exceptional experiencing 2 pods of dolphins, sting rays, jelly fish, yellow tails, and so much more. The snorkeling adventures have become our favorite activity over the years, and we highly recommend the experience. SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!
