“We had a great time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2009

This was a holiday booked through LDS travel. We came with our 4 children ages 11-23. This hotel is out side veracruz which is just what we loved the most. We were rubbing shoulders with the people and not just a tourist perspective. We stayed at the villas in a rustic but clean cabin. The indoor pool was out the back door and the beach was out the front. It had a stocked kitchen with water dispenser, breakfast everyday, lovely staff. It felt like we were on a guest ranch and treated like family. Loved the horse stables and peacocks. They drove us everywhere and provided interpreters who felt like family. The owner is very knowledgeble and we loved the tour of the ruins. Each day was a new adventure with kayaking, whitewater rafting, snorkling, beach bon fire, horseback riding. My son loved the donkey! We painted ceramics. Visited an orphanage, the Malls, ethnic dancing and Local artisans shops. THe on site restaurant had great pizza we also loved the seafood, chinese and tortilla restaurants and carls Jr. We came just before the swine flu breakout and we are all fine. We trusted them to tell us where was safe to eat. Great memories and pictures of Villa Palmira. We would come again!

We arrived in Veracruz after Christmas without reservations and couldn't get any room n a hotel in the city. We asked a desk clerk at the Holiday Inn where the rich people have houses thinking there would be a nice hotel nearby. She directed us to the wrong area-just poverty stricken deserted houses amidst some new high rise condos. It was pitch black and we spotted a sign for this place and went in. They had a vacancy and we stayed three days. Perfect place, unless you want luxury. Clean, spacious "villas," in natural setting, lovely deserted beach that goes on forever with lots of beautiful driftwood. Nice massage. Windy. Not hot, not cold. No bugs. Nice people. Pool. Very quiet. Simple breakfast delivered to room without request. Horses, peacocks that wander around, nothing for us to do really, but sit on our porch in our rocking chairs and read and talk, walk on the beach. This is exactly what we were looking for although we didn't know it til we got here. Huge bed. Really the simplist, nicest place in the world and we'd go back in a second. Not much hot water, and you have to drive for meals. Good Pollo Felix nearby for eat in or take out grilled chicken. The restaurant on site was not to our taste. Veracruz and Boca del Rio offer terrific seafood restaurants, mostly cheap and delicious. If you want to be waited on hand and foot and need a social life, this is not for you.

Stayed December 2008
