Disclaimer: I won this trip through work so I was just thrilled to be on the vacation, period, and generally was not going to get my feathers ruffled about too many things. That being said, we thoroughly enoyed our week at Karmina Palace, with a few exceptions. This is our fourth time to Mexico, our first time to the Pacific...

We enjoyed every part of our trip at the Karmina Palace.The food was good, service was good. Was everything perfect? No, but it would be very hard to find a legitmate complaint that is not normal with traveling. Our rating of Karmina would be A+.

My family just came back from a week at Karmina Palace. The weather was beautiful, our rooms were always clean, although the beds were too hard and were not that comfortable. We read many good reviews about the resort and thought it might be a good fit for our family since we have never been to an AI before. I...

Just returned from a week at the Karmina Palace with my husband and two teenage boys. 1. The resort and pool area were beautiful and kept very clean. Like other comments, the early morning "Towel Placement" was annoying. We saw many chairs with shoes, magazines placed on them and never saw the people the entire day. I agree with the...

Just returned from a week at the Karima Palace and I’m sad to say we will not be back. The grounds, pools and people we met were all fabulous; however there are a number of things that will keep us from returning. First, the bed was just a hard as the tile floors and pillows were not much better -...

We spent a week at Karmina Palace; we were a large group of adults and kids who ranged in age from about 9 -17 years old. Our rooms were large, beautiful, quiet and very clean.

Flight: Very smooth, direct flight with Air Transat, direct, with no hassles at customs other then the usual push the button, and search stuff that is usual for Mexico. If you arrive in the evenings, bug repellant would be advised as you may have to wait outside the airport for your transfer, and the mosquitos are everywhere then. Check-In: Everything...
