What We Love

  • The resort is just steps from the gorgeous white sands of Medano Beach, is a great place to pamper yourself.

Things to Know

  • Los Cabos and the resort offer something for everyone's vacation ideal: white beaches, world-class golf, thrilling nightlife in Cabo San Lucas and a spa.
It's the spectacular waterfall in the nine-story atrium lobby that first takes your breath away. This elegant structure is a fitting introduction to the luxury in store for you at this award-winning resort. Everywhere you look you see something special, from the seashell chandeliers to a salt-water aquarium. And, this is just the lobby. But that's not all. The resort is just a short walk away from numerous bars, shops and restaurants in Cabo. With the hotel perched along the safest and most popular swimming beach in the area, the powdery white sands of Medano Beach draw you to the shore. Feel the warmth of the tropical sun and breathe in the sea air as you take your place on the beach, spotting El Arco in the distance. This renowned rock formation across the bay is a dramatic silhouette against the blue sky.

Leaving the beach may be difficult, but when the sun is low on the horizon, it's time to think about dinner. Fortunately, you can savor the Los Cabos sunset from your beachside table at Bella California. Penne pasta with a creamy Mediterranean sauce composed of tomato, corn and capers is just one selection from a menu specializing in a fusion of Italian cuisine with California flair. The restaurant is the ideal spot for a romantic meal with your sweetie.

Be sure to reserve time during your stay to pamper yourself with an aromatherapy massage at the Desert Spa. This unique treatment incorporates essential oils from plants native to Baja California. Textures and fragrances of the Mexican desert come together in a delightful sensual experience that leaves you feeling rejuvenated. The 31,000-sq. ft. spa is in front of a sister property next door.

A trip to Mexico and Los Cabos isn't complete without an excursion to Cabo San Lucas. You can catch a taxi, but why not take the time to enjoy the 20-minute walk to this picturesque town square with 200-year-old buildings? After all, you're on vacation and there's no reason to hurry.

    We had to book our transportation from Villa del Palmar to Cabo Airport with Cabo Limousines due to Coronavirus

    due to coronavirus we had to do an early departure, we booked our transportation on Cabo Limousines website, we wish we could've stayed more in cabo but coronavirus messed everything up, besides that our transportation with Cabo Limousines Company and Stay with Villa del Palmar was great

    Always a Great Stay

    We had a family reunion with daughter's family. The grandkids are 13,15,17 and 19. Never heard them once say "I'm Bored" Staff is always friendly and helpful. Keep you all in our hearts as we work thru this pandemic.

    Villa del Palmar, Cabo San Lucas

    This is a beautiful location. 80-85 degrees in February! We had a great time! Everyone was so helpful and kind! We did several excursions during our stay...snorkeling, city tour, camel ride in the desert. Lots of margaritas and fun!

    Had a great stay!

    Beautiful resort! We got an ocean view room on the 6th floor. Every night we enjoyed the music from the daily shows down below. Good resort for kids, though we didn't bring ours. Food exceeded expectations for an all-inclusive. We didn't get the all-inclusive, and in retrospect, wouldn't have fully used it. They also jacked up the price from ~$70per person/day when we booked in advance to about ~$110per person/day offered at check in. Definitely not worth the higher price at check in unless you are a hardcore drinker.

    25 year anniversary

    My wife and I stayed at VPD for a week, we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The hotel is older but kept very clean in the main areas. I do agree with other travellers that rooms were not cleaned until very late in the day or not at all if you did not ask for it. Also, soap was frequently missing from bathrooms in public areas. Staff did not correct poor behaviour by the spring breakers. Kids having fun but making other people uncomfortable with easily correctable behaviours. A large disappointment to our trip was a theft from our room. We had a a pair of earbuds ($250) stolen from our room on our first night. While I reported this knowing full well that they would not be replaced or compensated for, I was completely disappointed in the hotels response. The response was nothing, crickets, I explained that we were celebrating our big anniversary and we were very upset with this happening. Nobody followed up, nobody apologized, nobody showed any remorse, and most importantly nobody cared. We enjoyed our stay, despite the sour taste. All the staff everywhere else were fantastic. I hope the VPD employee using my ear buds gets good use out of them as I loved them. Next time just ask me, I would probably give them to someone more in need than me. The hotel is good for the price, just know that they compromise their values.
