Excellent breakfast buffet! Plenty of options for dinner, there are half a dozen restaurants on site, plus a deli that has all the essentials. Luxury, spacious rooms, silent A/C, comfy beds. We spent a lot of time in the hammock on the balcony. The outdoor areas are beautifully landscaped and maintained. The five pools are amazing. Mentionable sustainability efforts.
The only thing really is the efforts upon arrival to talk guests into attending a presentation for some kind of investment, offering discounts on tours and meals in return. The staff is not too pushy about it though. It's up to everyone to decide whether saving some money is worth the time.
Amazing stay! Would definitely stay again. Our suite was immaculate and so luxurious!! Staff were extremely welcoming and friendly and really loved the fact that the had a guest area for us to stay at while we waited for our flight.
Mosquitoes! Couldn't really be helped but if staff could have provided citronella candles or something to keep the mozzies away it would have been appreciated. Love our stay here though.
Perfekt Hotel, very clean & beautiful, friendly personel, good food
Personel expects usually high tips, prices in the restaurants are very expensive in comparison to the surrounding in Mexico (but the quality is excellent). We attended a presentation to acquire a VIP card with promotions. The aim of the presentation is that members will be gained for a „residence club“ of the hotel company (& partners). Instead of promised 90min, this presentation took 2,5h and the company tried to sell us a contract for around $70.000,- USD for 50 years... so long story short, I do not recommend participation in this presentation.
Liked the resort
The fact we had no cold water in the room and the hot water ran red rusty stuff out of it. When I spoke to girls at desk it was like it was not a problem . We could not shower for the 2 days we were there . Purchased bottled water to wash! Spoke to manager on first night who said we could get upgraded to all inclusive If we wanted all inclusive we would have purchased it. On speaking with other guests they also had same problem. The restaurant in the lobby could not cook well done Sent back twice and the blood still ran from the steak. So ended up not eating. While sitting there water dropped on me from being while waiter was there and he just said Oh it's because doors are open.
geart location lovely pools great food.
no hot water and someone keep knocking on the floor in the midth of the night.
The Villa Del Palmar is one of the Cancun’s most upscale spots for a family-friendly, all-inclusive getaway. Its Playa Mujeres location means that it feels secluded and quiet, but its extensive assortment of activities helps ensure guests are always busy with activities everyone can enjoy.
The Villa Del Palmar is north of Cancun in a private resort community on a white-sand beach with lots of features including five pools, six restaurants, a gym, spa, and kids' club with its own splash pool. There is an array of daily activities such as tequila tasting, cooking lessons, and face-painting, and many adult-only areas. While there is plenty to do, the beach remains one of the major highlights at the resort.
There are six restaurants, plus a local market near the resort. Two additional snack bars and three cocktail bars are available. Guests often book all-inclusive packages, which includes meals and standard alcohol and wines.
The 415 spacious, homey suites all feature kitchens, plus balconies with hammocks, many with ocean views. Standard rooms at the resort include fully stocked wet bars, microwaves, coffeemakers, and mini-fridges. There are three main room categories including One-Bedroom Suites, Deluxe Rooms, and Two-Bedroom Suites.
For families and couples seeking to avoid the hustle and noise of the busy hotel zone, but still want an upscale resort with plenty to do, Villa Del Palmar is one of the area's best options.

Does the Villa del Palmar offer specials for couples?
