Unpleasant Deck Hand Ruined Our Fishing Vacation
Reviewed 1 week ago

Our recent stay at Palmas de Cortez Hotel was extremely disappointing – compounded by a rude and incompetent deck hand who ruined our fishing vacation. We chartered one of the hotel’s bigger, nicer boats, the Tu Corazon, but unfortunately it came with a scowling, non-communicative, lazy deck hand who had a big chip on his shoulder. Almost half of the fish we had on the line were lost at the back of the boat because Francisco didn’t do his job. And at times he appeared to be doing it intentionally; in one instance, he actually laughed at me when I lost a fish that went under the boat while he stood to the side rather than grab the line to direct the fish away from the boat and gaffe it. It was shocking the way he acted. Palmas de Cortez has long gotten away with shoddy hospitality standards (the lowest quality breakfast buffet, mediocre restaurant and basic but over-priced box rooms with not even Wi-fi) because the location on the Sea of Cortez is beautiful and the fishing was excellent. Today, however, the one-time abundance of fish is a thing of the past, with many fishermen we spoke with complaining of smaller fish and meager catches. With a nasty deck hand like Francisco to boot, we will never be returning to Palmas de Cortez.

Love the simple quiet

2nd visit here and we had a large group which enjoyed our stay. The staff is very friendly and welcoming , and it’s a great being away from the typical Cabo area hotels. The food is fairly good , and the town has all you need to explore and have some fun. There are various rooms we all had , and I would suggest a newer remodeled room, but the cabana rooms by the pool had the best locations.

Great value for oceanfront hotel room!

We were extremely pleased with our stay here. Nice sized room, private patio and just steps to the beach for swimming, snorkeling and watching the beautiful East Cape morning sunrises. Pool area was great and we experienced excellent customer service at the pool bar. Went down for breakfast buffet most mornings, selection was good freshly replenished and everyone there very helpful, especially Norma.

Great place with a team fully focused on fisherman. Everyone super friendly, very accommodating and will do anything to help. We switched out from poolside rooms for our group when we arrived and so glad we did as the condo was roomy for our group.

Nice little hotel
Reviewed 3 months ago

Stayed here a few nights before getting a vrbo condo that is connected to the grounds. The place is nice and the staff seem to care.
These aren’t really complaints but
-The beds are a little hard.
-The drinks are weak (not an all inclusive)
-The shower water is HOT.
I really liked Norma at the Tico breakfast place. She was very sweet to my kids and informative to us.
Los Barilles is a quiet, nothing really to do but chill town. We will be back.
