Our Opinion. The Las Palmas Beach or Las Palmas by the Sea is an older 3 star all inclusive resort. You won't find anything extravagant here, but you also won't find a bad hotel either. The regular rooms are basic and may have no view or balcony, so an ocean view upgrade may be worth it. Even though it's old, the resort is kept in good condition and the staff are very friendly. The hotel is also close to downtown Puerto Vallarta as well. If its available for a great price, like it often is, then this resort can be a steal of a deal.
Las Palmas by the Sea. The charming, family-managed Las Palmas has been a favourite for years, with its great location on a small beach, close to town. With extensive renovations in 2003, this hotel is looking better than ever! It's famous for its rustic South Seas charm, with a pure 'Swiss Family Robinson' lobby, complete with thatched roof and wooden overhead walkways. Rooms are basic and the location is superb - no wonder Las Palmas sells out year after year!
Location: Right on the beach in the heart of the hotel zone, 10 minutes from downtown, 15 minutes from the airport.
