Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto stands majestically on the eastern shore of Baja California, overlooking an unspoiled coastline with gorgeous craggy peaks plunging into the Sea of Cortez. The pristine state of the area might be due to the fact that Loreto is quite isolated –direct flights are limited, and the resort itself sits about 300 miles north of Cabo San Lucas. Regardless, guests still come here for the relaxed atmosphere found on the sprawling private beach and in the Sabila Spa. The resort's suites are also chic and contemporary with LCD TVs, private balconies or terraces and kitchens or kitchenettes. And guests can choose to dine at three on-site restaurants. Meals at The Market Restaurant and Casa Mia are covered by the nightly room rate, but eating at Danzante Restaurant & Bar will cost an extra $15 USD per person.
