Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa is beautifully located on El Medano Beach - one of the safest swimming beaches in Cabo San Lucas. In a gated area, Villa del Palmar Is an ideal blend of location, intimacy and recreation.
We got a special deal for a resort package here and were required to sit through a timeshare presentation they said would last 90 minutes in order to qualify for the special price. The presentation ended up lasting half a day but everyone was pleasant and there was no pressure to buy. We would do it again for the value received.
Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived through our departure, all the employees seem happy to be there and happy to help. Our package was all inclusive and there are a handful of onsite restaurants to choose from. We tried them all and our favorite was Bella California. The service by Carlos and everyone else was excellent, warm, and made us feel both special and at home. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and they gave us a special dessert with a happy anniversary message.
The view cannot be beat, we even got a full moon while there and seeing it over the beautiful bay was unforgettable.
The hotel itself has a few quirks like elevators that don’t always work (we got stuck in one for a few minutes and the lights went out), and there was broken plumbing in our shower. However, overall it’s a clean and comfortable place to stay. The location is prime, and I highly recommend anyone visiting to take a glass bottom boat excursion to the arches across the bay for an unforgettable experience. The snorkeling is phenomenal and better than we have seen in Hawaii!
Remember to bring small bills for tipping, even though they say it’s not expected it definitely is in some places.
We used the hotels shuttle to transport us to and from the airport which is about an hour’s drive from the hotel. The very lovely senora Luzma was so kind and helpful when helping me book transportation and also when checking us out at the end of our trip. We want to give a big thank you to all the employees for creating a special experience for us that we won’t ever forget! We will be back.
A quiet relaxing resort with great staff, drinks food and views!

Great resort with a wonderful and helpful staff. The staff was very friendly and kind we especially enjoyed Andres and Juan Carlos poolside. We also enjoyed spending time in the sports bar with Jonathan “Chao”. An overall great experience the food was very good and service was prompt and thorough. Can’t wait to go back.
