About Violet

We are working professionals from New York City and we just love going to different parts of Mexico every year.

Violet purchased this resort in 2011

Why Violet chose Cabo San Lucas

Location is key! It's away from the crowded areas and yet is only a few minutes away from the center of Cabo. The resort while recently renovated has retained an older charm.

What makes this resort unique

Villa Del Palmar has 2 adjoining sister resorts that you can visit. There is a free trolley available that drops you off to any of these 2 resorts without going through the beach.

Wonderful week in Cabo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Villa Del Palmar from March 20-27. We had such a great experience. Even with the crazy spring break rush we hardly noticed. Our room was great and the staff at VDP are so helpful and friendly. Violet was so helpful leading up to our trip sending us an email about transportation and explaining all the amenities around the resort and information about the surrounding area. It made the time leading up to our vacation easy to schedule and prepare for so our stay could be worry free. Thank you so much!

Studio was nice but the two large dogs that barked all night, every night next door ruined it.

  • 2 of 5

We complained to the front desk every night and their only solution was to move us to a non-ocean front view that was by all the spring break kids. No thanks. We asked security to contact the home owner to have them put their dogs in the house but he said no one lives there, they just have someone stop to feed the dogs each day. Sad.

Clean, well run property with excellent staff

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and I enjoyed two weeks at the resort and enjoyed our entire stay.

Medano beach was actually much nicer than I had expected, its a great location. Be wary if you are an avid ocean swimmer that the beach is steep and there can be a healthy "beach break" which could be difficult for older bathers, but its all quite manageable. Brought a surf rod with me and had fun fishing off the Playa just to the north of the resort great fun...

Prices for food and drinks are worth investigating carefully depending on what type of package / vacation you are planning.

Nice weather and beautiful area

  • 3 of 5

The place was nice and comfortable and the area is great.


- There is no free internet as the add implies. It is $10 per day per device and and doesn't work most of the time.

- The area is inundated with beggars. Fighting them off gets old after a while

- They promise an ocean view but you have to get lucky to get that. Our view was of the building next door with only a small partial ocean view.


- Whale watching was great

- golfing was great

- Fishing was great, caught a 1-ft marlin

- scuba diving was fun and easy

Mostly Good - we would to it again

  • 4 of 5

Owner (Violet): very friendly and helpful.

Resort: A little worn but still nice. Lot of families & children. 1 of 3 resorts together: Palmar, Arco and Estancia. Arco is newer, nicer, less crowded with fewer children. One can easily walk between Arco and Palmar; a trolley runs regularly between the two. The third resort, Estancia, is for private residence (only accessible to go to the restaurants).

Pools: Pools at both Palmar and Arco are nice. At Palmar, pools are loaded with families and lounge chairs are taken early. Palmar has 2 smallish hot tubs (always full) and Arco has 4 large tubs.

Spa: Spa at Arco is very nice.

Staff: Very friendly. Expect to be invited to a TimeShare Presentation (not too pushy so it's all good).

Food: Generally good but unfortunately, our first experience was the Taco bar and it was horrible. Pizza bar was excellent. Food at the sports bar was OK. Meals at El Patron (at Arco) were outstanding - the best grilled meat that I can remember. Dinner at Neptune (at Arco) was good. Buffets were typical & decent.

Drinks: Almost all beer is provided in a can (only Mexican labels). The sports bar at Palmar has a tap with Light and Dark Modelo. Margaritas were OK - with lots of variability. A few bad, a few very strong, and a few just right.

Room: The room is in the main entry building with a great view to the Arc (pretty much as the picture shows). Its not particularly fancy, but it works. Has a small kitchenette. The beds and pillows are firm (my wife and I fought over the softest pillow). The balcony sits right above the main dining buffet which has a nightly show. A cooking fan comes on at night, so it can be a little noisy but closing the balcony door pretty much fixes it. The nightly show is a little loud but we either went out or enjoyed the shows from the balcony (view is above and to the side). Dancing, Singing, etc.

All Inclusive Plan: $105/person for each day (3-day min, did not need to be purchased in advance). I'm not sure we would do it again. AIP is good for most food & drinks but not all. You sign a receipt for every meal & drink & tip. Tips & premium items charged to the room, the rest is zeroed out. Prices charged (without AIP) were high. Happy Hour between 3 and 4pm with 2for1 drinks (without AIP). Small market & deli @ the Palmar is convenient for stocking the fridge (as expected, a bit pricey).

Internet: $10.00 / day / device. Waste of money - extremely slow.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your honest and fair review about the property. I look forward to having you stay again at Villa Del Palmar in your future vacation or perhaps try the adjoining sister resort, Villa Del Arco.
