    We love Loreto and have stayed here many times. This time was extra special because we were greeted by club Manager Misael Chan and Jenaro Apolono who went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and treated like family.This resort is quite exclusive and you will feel very safe here.. the golf course is state-of-the-art the beach is calm great for kids and the pools and facilities are very clean. I highly recommend staying at the villa de Palmar in Loreto Mexico

    I have stayed at Villa Properties before, but I fell in love with VDP in Loreto. The amazing, friendly employees are what makes it great. This was my first time in Loreto and I’m going to make it a frequent visit now. Roberto at the pool is such a hard worker and has the best attitude and really takes care if everyone. Cristian at the marketplace bar is so nice and welcoming and made us feel special. Cesar at Casa Mia is top notch with serving and also amazing cocktails. He remembered me from 6 yrs ago at Garza Blanca in PV! We absolutely loved loved loved Hugo, Jocelyn, and the other performers on the Entertainment Team. Such talented dancers well led by Dubis. They work so hard from pool activities to practices to performances. We also liked the manager of the spa and also saw her helping at Casa Mia. Just really hard workers doing the best job at making the guests feel welcomed. Activities that we did - walked the beach, played bingo and did water aerobics at the pool, 2 massages at the spa along with using the soaking tubs and sauna. We did a sunset cruise and also fishing. We brought the fish back to the resort and the marketplace prepared it for us 2 different ways- sashimi and grilled with butter / garlic. It was amazing!! We loved karaoke night and wished there was a bit more dancing / music around the resort available. The bed wasn’t too comfortable. It slipped and was kinda bumpy. All in all, one of the best vacations of my life ??????

    Best of Mexico!

    We have traveled to all of the tourists spots in Mexico and this is by far our favorite! From the beautiful small town of Loreto with it's sparkling and clear blue seas and gorgeous islands, to the small beaches with warm water and no people, it was love at first site! It is on the Sea of Cortez and is very safe and Covid free. Even the small international airport was better then any in Mexico we have been to. The property, about a half hour drive from Loreto, was so inviting with beautiful rooms and huge verandas. The only negative I can say about the rooms was the beds were very uneven so that you rolled to one side or the other and if you're in the B side you have no table. Our favorite restaurants were The Market and Casa Mia. The food was very good. Especially, the fish. Just wish they had more varieties of it. Don't waste your money paying extra for Danzante. It wasn't worth it. The pools were inviting and the beach so relaxing! The golf course at the property was our men's favorite! They not only played it twice, but insisted their ladies jumped in the cart just so we could see how amazingly beautiful it was and believe me it didn't disappoint!! You realize you are in this awesome place, crystal clear water, beautiful land, but what makes it even more special is the staff at the resort. From Guillermo and Daniela at the front desk, to Jocelyn one of the entertainment people, everyone was so friendly and helpful. We quickly made friends with Cristian the bartender at the Market restaurant. He was engaging and fun. When we asked for our tequila to be chilled, he made sure it was ready every day. He created some very tasty drinks and demo'd how to make some of them. When he took a day off, he introduced us to Cesar, whom quickly became another favorite. He created drinks just for us and wow I can't even describe how good they were. On our last night Cristian surprised us with a chilled bottle of Prosecco and Cesar made us an amazing shot put on a plate with writing that said thank you for your visit. They couldn't have been any more thoughtful. David at the beach bar was another one who always had drinks and food ready and would get chairs and towels for us when needed. Our room was cleaned daily with fresh towels. We felt so spoiled. We went on an awesome snorkeling trip with Remy. He even made sure he searched out dolphins and found them. I'd also like to give a shout out to these waiters who work hard despite the heat to make their guests feel taken care of. Our absolute faves were Jorge, Manual and Roberto, but also high fives to Hugo, Manny, Juan, Jesus, Tulio, Edgar, Francisco, Gerardo, Marco and Bucine! Seriously, that's how many people try hard to make you have a great time! Also, props to the bellboy team. This vacation was so relaxing and we felt so spoiled. We couldn't have gone to better place!!

    My day was at TPC Golf in Danzante Bay Golf course and Hotel was nothing short of espectacular. This is a 5 star Hotel and Golf Resort has everything you would want and a dream come true for me to play this golf course. The grass is lush green, breathtaking views and it should be on every golfers bucket list. For dinner My wife and I were attended by server Gabriel in El Patio restaurant. We found him to be very attentive and professional. He suggested for us to have his #1 Gabriel especial by chef Rafael which is a tender cut filet mignon with their own special sauce. It was delicious and very tasty! We would recommend this establishment with all it’s amenities even if you were just to spend the day. Easily 5 stars!
