You should come here to really see the beauty of this place. The hotel is very nice but it is a bit pricey. The place has everything you could want in a beach vacation. The beach here is so private that you can walk a long ways before running into a few fishing boats bringing in their catch of the...

The hotel is pretty good, the sunset view is amazing, well located and the staff is very helpful, however quality service is too bad in comparison with the price. -When we arrived to my room, the bathroom floor was wet and there was rest of used soap in the shower. We had to call to reception because toilet water was...

Christian, Thank you for your review, I am sorry you had a bad experience with us, will make the necessary corrections as some of the issues you mention are quite a surprise for me.

This review will be a little different. We recently stayed in the Vistazul condos, the condo development affiliated with the Palmazul hotel, and right across Calle Quito. We toured the hotels common areas, and they are spectacular, right on the beach. Beautiful pool and ocean side deck. First class restaurant. But that is not what I want to talk about....

I had the opportunity to stay in the hotel and eat at their restaurant and the place is simply amazing. Surrounded by palm trees, with wooden shacks around the swimming pool, and just couple of feet from the beach. Beach extends pretty decently so you can enjoy long walks in the sand or just relax and read a book. This...

This place is a hidden jewel located right on the ocean. Most of the beachfront has been wiped out from the earthquake & unusual high tides but it won't be long until it's rebuilt to it's previous beauty. This oceanfront is so peaceful you have immediate serenity as soon as you walk onto the property. The staff are very friendly...

Hi! Thank you for your kind review, too bad our hotel didn't deserve the 5 stars because of problems with Ecuadorian society that are a little bit out of our control, it is a big work to change the mindset of the people. We have a couple of programs at the hotel, to encourage visitors to pick up garbage and...

We rented a condo across the road from the Palmazul Hotel and paid for one month's use of the hotel's facilities - pool, bar, private beach, tennis, etc. So far, and this is only day 3, we have enjoyed breakfast twice and dinner one night. Great food and wonderful wait staff. No English, just a little Spanish my wife has...

We stopped in to eat at the Palmazul. Great lunch for two with two beers and two very large lunches (Octopus and Rice & Seabass cooked in vegetables and white wine). Total was $35.30 USD. Service was quick and friendly. The rest of the hotel appeared very clean and well set up. Wished we had made a reservation there.

I booked a family trip to Palmazul for a 4 day holiday. We arrived with high expectations that were soon brought down. We were expecting a relaxing and peaceful family weekend, but that was not even close to happening. The hotel is truly located in the middle of a very crowded neighborhood in a very very noisy town.
