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.


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.

Awesome Resort! Smaller, friendly feel..

This resort is older, but you get what you pay for. With that being said, I found it to be one of the friendliest Hotels in PV. I have been to PV over 100 times, stayed at many different resorts but found the staff here incredible and willing to please most of your needs... The food is good, don't listen to the haters. Read alot of the reviews and form your own opinion.. It is a friendly place with friendly people, not uptight and pretentious. Adult pool area has the quiet rooms, children's pool area can get loud. Depends what you are looking for.I will definitely be back soon.

Everything within the Resort was perfect

We loved everything about our stay. The front desk staff were great. The morning after our first night we asked to change rooms because I am 6'3" and the double bed was too short for me and I needed a Queen size bed. They moved us to a room with a King size bed! The bell hops were great. The cleaning staff were great. The food was awesome. The bar tender David was the best. The drinks are poured as strong as you want them. Don't buy any excursions from the booth in the lobby and definitely don't let them at that booth suck you into going to Garza Blanca to listen to a no-commitment presentation just to receive a discount card for 20 - 60% off excursions. Use your trip provider. Ours was Air Transat. Don't miss out on seeing the wild Crocodile that lives on the north side of the resort.

It's a very nice hotel and the service is great and the view is beautiful and it's so relaxing, but the only thing is to

Well the air condition work that well.we never had our room that cold. I think you need new air-conditioning. And you need on the food to change to different foods not the same thing but it was good. The service was great.the waitress that we had was nice and she serve us good she gave her attention to us she was great. Her name is Yolanda very nice lady.

Great location

The hotel is situated in a great spot right on the water. The hotel staff VERY serviceable and friendly. The hotel is a little old but the price reflects it. The all inclusive food so so but meets the bill. The bars keep serving great drinks not a great selection.

Amazing Experience

Wow! I had so much fun at Las Palmas!! This was my first time ever in Mexico and let me tell you the staff made it so much fun to stay! My friend and I visiting from Las Vegas were the only Americans in the hotel and we knew little Spanish which was a running joke during our stay. (We learned a lot of Spanish too) The service was so amazing!!! The staff made sure we were taken care of. The Ocean view from the room was incredible. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because the rooms are a little older and need to be updated. But other than that everything was incredible. The food was outstanding! We really got a lot out of the all inclusive option. The drinks were so good. Also, Jose, the activities coordinator was so fabulous. He took care of helping us get tickets and even escorted us to all of the fun clubs. He even let us test out their brand new kayaks. Jose was amazing!!! We love him! We will definitely be back!
