We stayed at El Palmar for the eighth time in eleven years of travelling to Mexico-there is a reason for continuing to return to el Palmar, it is a blast! These words come to mind: Sunshine, clean rooms, great site, tennis, bikes, friends, camaraderie, pot luck, restaurants, bollios, Oso & Gatoito--and, "feels like home..." John, Rosa, Kathy and staff continue...
Highly recommended! Tennis every morning on 4 beautiful red clay courts - who could ask for more! El Palmar is very laid back and relaxed, and the price is right!
For a tennis addicted single woman looking for a safe, intimate place to stay over the Christmas holiday I couldn't have dreamed for anything better. John and Rosa are the perfect hosts.
We flew into Puerta Villarta, rented a car, and enjoyed the drive to melaque. We found plenty of good places to eat, and enjoyed the lovely beach and the morning tennis. We loved our spacious and beautiful Suite; the rooms were clean and spacious, the furniture comfortable, and the bed divine. The weather was great, and we will definitely be back.
There are 4 clay courts nearby and El Patlmar's owner takes guests there and back by van for drop-in tennis matches. Melaque is not a luxury resort town which makes it a wonderful place to visit.
