    $$$$ tacos

    Home of the most expensive tacos on the planet. My girlfriend and I got 3 mini tacos each (a 2.5-3 inch diameter soft taco) and 2 margaritas, the total was $39 USD. It's just offensive, not even remotely reasonable. They are clearly trying to push the all inclusive option. Instead we went to Costco and loaded up on food. We won't be spending another cent on-site here. Also, upon checking in everyone has to sit through a mandatory sales pitch to try and get you to go to a longer 8 a.m., 90 minute timeshare pitch. Like people want wake up at 8 a.m. on vacation for a timeshare presentation... Our family already owns a unit here, that didn't get us out of the 15-20 minute check-in pitch... I will say the staff works very hard, this is not an issue with the frontline staff it’s management clearly.

    Villa Del Palmar Upcoming Visit

    We go to Cabo every year. Hoping this COVID pandemic hasn't hampered too much of paradise. Looking forward to fishing and our favorite restaurant Salvatore's!!! The break is needed just a little bit more this year. Fingers crossed! Last year did not disappoint! Great resort, great food, amazing views, zip lines through Cabo Adventures were a blast and our guides were amazing. If you are thinking of visiting Cabo San Lucas be prepared to never wanna go anywhere else. I just need to find a job so we can move there.

    Villa Del Palmar

    I book an all-inclusive 5 day/ 6 night trip via Book VIP and took trip in December 2019. The hotel, amenities, and service were all impeccable. So much to see and do that you likely won’t even come close to doing half of it. We spent much of our days at the pool overlooking the beach and ocean. The server there, whose name was Nico, was the most pleasant and attentive server that I’ve ever had anywhere, bar none. A memorable trip that will not disappoint!

    Great Location

    This is located near downtown. It is walking distance. This resort is close the the swimmable part of the beach. Not all parts of the beach are swimmable. The waves are fierce. The resort is nice and the staff were friendly. The food at the resort was good. We got our room upgraded to a one bedroom suite. The room was nice and comfortable. The balcony view was amazing.

    A wonderful birthday surprise

    Came to Cabo for my fiancé’s birthday. Beatriz, our advisor, was absolutely amazing in planning his birthday surprise. She planned our entire trip! We were able to enjoy a fantastic massage, atv rides, and a beautiful yacht excursion. Our suite was spacious, clean, and quiet. Staff at the hotel were all very friendly and service was phenomenal. We enjoyed our trip to Cabo so much we decided to extend our trip for a few extra days. Hotel has a shuttle that takes you next door where there is a market store that has groceries/booze/pharmacy/self-service laundry. For COVID, I observed staff continuously wiping down surfaces & buffets were not self service. Thank you Villa Del Palmar and Beatriz for the great memories. We hope to visit again soon.
