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.

Boring hotel for a beach resort. If you want to have fun don't come here.

Whenever my friends and I were having fun, personnel of the hotel would ask us to stop doing that; listening to music by the pool, passing a football around, etc. We weren't the only ones complaining, since most of the people we met there at the hotel complained about how they wouldn't let us have fun. Most of them said they wouldn't be coming back.The food isn't good at all for a buffet, the quality is bad and only a few things are actually alright to eat. Also, they don't let you take the food outside the restaurant in which you take it from, even if you are going to eat it at another restaurant.Everyone is very rude and impolite, the waiters would get mad if you ask them to bring you something to drink. Even the cooks who are serving you food are rude and seem to hate their lives.You couldn't drink inside the pool area but if you pay for their sea food which has an extra cost you can even eat inside the pool.Overall, I wouldn't recommend staying here unless you really just want to relax and do nothing active. Maybe it is perfect for an elderly couple.

Perfect solo escape (Thanks to David!)

Excellent time at this resort. Mostly because of the service of lobby bartender David! As someone who was traveling alone he was sure to make me feel welcome whenever I attended his bar. Plus he would whip up whatever random drink I dreamt of. He's truly a gem. The rest of the resort is great... love the adults pool and balcony view. It's quite a small resort so you'll want to get off and go do excursions. I didn't really eat much the whole time I was there (the food seemed okay but I my appetite was limited due to the heat and humidity.) The only negative is the time share people that stop you on your way in.

Cocos Bar

David keeps the good vibes going!Friendly, easy going, high standard bartending with a smile and Vallartanese flair.This lobby bar catches the entertainment, in a classic lobby breezeway for those hot summer nights. Swimming pool, hot tub, on site restaurants, clean washrooms (always) nearby and even a glimpse of the sunset Vallarta is famous for available depending which way you look.No air conditioning needed at this bar....Always end up meeting new people from all over the world.Myself and friends choose this hotel because of it's cleanliness and all round professional manner of every employee.David is the perfect example of this.Coco's Bar is too easily made into the last stop of the night.Check out the parrot at entrance.Very well cared for and dynamic cage design giving the big guy lots of space and attention.Great security and totally safe.Way to go David & everyone working here!My room was terrific as always....
