    Alfrido making the Villa del Palomar awesome

    We had a wonderful time at the cabanas. Alfrido our pool concierge really took care of us. Make sure we had everything we needed and the food was excellent. The service was really good and he made sure that we had what we needed. Whenever we go to the Villa Del Palmer, we always look for Alfrido to take care of us.

    Not impressed.

    Arriving at this resort you are greeted by the bell staff with a costumery ' Welcome Home " nice touch even though this was my first stay. Apon entering the reception area, you are pounced upon by the dreaded timeshare people and though they call themselves Activity employees, they are just timeshare reps. A quick no thanks to anything they have to offer usually does the trick. Now that you have got them off your back, you can finally check in to the resort, if your allotted room is ready ( which mine was not ) I was asked to return two hours later, to have my wrist band activated so as to enter my room. As I was in no way going to spend $$$ per day on the all inclusive, I was left high and dry with nothing to do for two hours, no one told me that there was a bag drop, to store my bag, no map of the resort was given, no information what so ever. You are basically treated as not a welcomed guest. Two hours of waiting around I was at last given access to my room. On entering I found it to be quite spacious for a studio unit, two double beds, small LCD television, Kitchen with two cooktops, fridge/Freezer, sink. Bathroom, vanity with shower tub combination. Very large balcony as this studio unit sat on roof of the sports bar, very comfortable. Went to the on site grocery store to buy essentials for the night, as I just needed food for that night, before I went into town the next day to visit Walmart to get my food for the week. Purchased at the on site store was , one loaf of bread, tub of butter, small pack of bacon, cheese slices, (8 slices ) pack of ham, ( 10 slices ) 1 liter of water and a 2 liter bottle of sprite drink. SHOCK came to a whopping $92 us dollars. Come on guys your having a laugh was what I actually said to the checkout girl, but yes that was the price. I have heard of markups but this takes the markup to a whole new level. First morning, stood on my balcony and observed the sun lounger reservists at 6am being busy reserving the best loungers around the adult only pool, by 7.30 am not a single lounger was available for the non reservists. Come on management get a grip and put a stop to this practice, make it fair for everyone to enjoy the pool area. Please make it clear at check in, that this policy of reserving chairs will not be tolerated by management and said articles will be removed if loungers do not have a body laying on them after a certain amount of time. Beach area only had 20 lounge chairs on the beach, so forget trying to get one of them after 6am. Pool staff work their butts off taking and filling drink and food orders for the AI guests, if you are non AI ( like myself ) please have the patience to wait half a day for your order to arrive. Nightly entertainment was fun to watch, there is a different themed show on every night, performed by the activity reps at the kids pool, though they lip sink to the music, it is still entertaining to watch. Every employee ( apart from timeshare and check in employees ) will go all out to make your stay an enjoyable one . The inside and outside of this property is cleaned to a high level each and every day. Would I go back for another visit in the future, Depends on what management does to improve the vacation experience for all inclusive and non inclusive alike in the future.

    Clean, nice, but poor location and sub-par room

    First the positives. Our room attendant/maid (Guadalupe Garcia) was the best, most attentive, friendly, thorough person. She was the best part of the resort. The room and the resort were clean and fresh. Most staff greeted us with a smile and friendliness. The pools were great. The resort felt well kept. A few major negatives here. We stayed for 8 days. 2 of the nights they scheduled construction right outside of our room at 2:30 am that involved hammers, drills, and other machinery. When we asked them to stop the first night, they reluctantly agreed after 30 minutes. The second night was still loud enough to keep us awake but not as loud. The resort management was very unhelpful. They told me they had to do maintenance, I told them that the middle of the night is never the right time to do this type of maintenance. They said they didn't have another room to move us to. From inside the rooms you can hear everyone that walks by Even if they are speaking in a normal voice. The walls are paper thin. The beach is not good. Lots of seaweed once you get 20 feet out. Lots of nice things but I would not recommend Villa Del Palmar to others

    Great place.

    I would like to comment that the service was top notch from the time we arrived in the lobby with Kapil to the service at the pools by José and many others. Restaurant service by all was great ,but Luis in the sports restaurant was excellent and even brought us a cake on our last night with safe travel wishes on our trip home. Highly recommend del Palmar. We will be back in October.
