My wife and I just had our wedding at Palmazul Hotel and Spa and I must say it was AMAZING! It simply could not have turned out better. The Hotel was also able to find a last minute DJ that saved the night. The food was just insanely great and the service was a match. The rooms for everyone were...

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. Every single...

What a beautiful view when you walk in the entrance! An edgeless pool at the shore of the Pacific ocean! Very inviting. The menu is very nice with great prices, but I was STUNNED at the price of the hotel! $179.00 a night? You have got to be kidding. I peeked in one of the rooms and saw twin beds...

I went here for a university trip. It was delightful. The rooms were perfectly acommodated, very clean and espectacular view. The service team was always helpful. The pool area is very nice to spend time, too bad they "close it" around midnight. As a cooker, the food could be better but it was the best place we had after a...

The location and the place are great. We have been in the hotel several times. But this last time was an unpleasant surprise. Everything is begging to be remodeled and fixed. It's way to obvious the owners do not want to invest a penny in the place. Nothing is left of a once luxurious hotel. Only the price of 180...

This hotel is one of the few options in the San Clemente area. It is way overpriced. We ate at the restaurant several times and the service was incredibly slow, the meals cold by the time they reached our table and the food very overpriced and below average in quality. The building and grounds show signs of wear. It really...
