My family and I arrived to this hotel with high expectations given the information provided about its services and amenities. It is a nice hotel, located at the beautiful beach of San Clemente which I have not visited in at least 30 years, I am glad to see that it is still more or less as I remember it. I...

Gabriela, Thank you for your comments! we are going to take them into consideration and fix everything you mentioned.

Excellent service, great value for what you get. Beach is literally a few feet away from the hotel/pool. Very good food. The best of all, staff could not be friendlier, I've been to 5 star hotels and never experienced this kind of courtesy and attention. I am giving 4 stars to rooms just because they need to add some mosquito...

The hotel is good but they need to care for DETAIL. The day I stayed there, the hotel was empty but they put me in the smallest room of all. And believe me: the room was so small that the bed barely fit in there. Don't they know that every night a room is empty is a night lost forever?...

San Clemente, Ecuador
Reviewed 13 August 2014

San Clemente is a lovely little fishing village with beautiful beaches. Palmazul is the only North American style resort in the area, and is nice. Very pretty pool area and lounge. I would not say this is a spa, but rather a hotel with a massage room, where they can call in a massage therapist if you would like a...

If you are looking for an out-of-the-way place that hasn't been tainted with tourist traps, San Clemente is your place. The beach is beautiful and quiet, and local fisherman haul their catch onto the shore every morning. The hotel is gorgeous and has everything you need: comfy beds, plenty of hot water and great pressure, a bar, a beautiful pool,...

Very accommodating resort and staff, we spend 3 nights and had a great time. It is located on a nice quiet beach, on a small fishing town. The pool and the facilities are excellent, as well as the restaurant. Highly recommend.
