If you are new to all inclusive resorts, Villa Del Palmar Loreto may seem like an"excellent" resort (hence the high reviews). If you are a seasoned traveler, it is a very average resort. It pales in comparison to resorts such as Palace and Karisma resorts. The rooms are clean (but average with very little decor or hominess), the pools are...

My wife and I had a great vacation there for seven days. Hiking trails are really nice and the new golf course looks like it's gonna be really great with some beautiful ocean holes. I went scuba diving and it was pretty nice and we also went into Loretto.

This place is a gem. It's very clean and the staff is so friendly and helpful. The location is a 30 minute drive south of the town of Loreto, but easily accessible via the hotel shuttle or rental car. We loved playing at the beach, paddle boarding, kayaking, and relaxing by the pool. The spa is great too. The food...

The resort was very nice. Great views. Great weather. It was very clean and the staff were very friendly. The beach was alright. You have to walk our very far to get past your knees. The beach bar was great, the bar waiter was great. We spent time by the VIP pool and our server Manny was the best. He...

I was at VDP Loreto last April and even though I wanted to return, thought I would try another place.
