Give it a break people! It’s interesting how spoiled some of us Americans are, complaining about everything and anything. Click here to read more

DISAPPOINTED/BEWARE PARENTS MY FAMILY & I VISITED LAS PALOMAS FOR THE FIRST TIME ALONG WITH SOME FRIENDS THAT\'VE BEEN THERE BEFORE...IT\'S A BEAUTIFUL PLACE, THE WHOLE APARTEMNT WAS VERY NICELY DECORATED, KITCHEN WAS VERY WELL EQUIPPED WITH ALL THE NECESSARY UTENSILS. CLEANING CREW COULD DEFINATELY IMPROVED THOUGH. WE HAD TO CALL SEVERAL TIMES FOR CLEAN TOWELS...BUT ENOUGH OF THAT BECAUSE NONE OF THIS COMPARES TO THE REAL NIGHTMARE THAT WE EXPERIENCED THERE @ LAS PALOMAS. ON AUGUST 8, 2009 (SATURDAY) A 6 YEAR OLD BOY DROWNED IN ONE OF THE POOLS OF THE RESORT AND THE WAY THE HOTEL STAFF HANDLED THE SITUATION WAS INCREDIBLY UNEXPLAINABLE. APPARENTLY, THERE WERE NO LIFEGUARDS ON SITE OR AT LEAST NONE OF THE SECURITY GUARDS WERE & MOST LIKELY STILL AREN\'T CPR TRAINED. THAT TO ME & TO THE OTHER PEOPLE THAT WITNESSED THE TRAGEDY WAS INCREDIBLE TO BELIEVE AT THAT MOMENT WHEN THE CHILD WAS FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE. THE HOTEL AS NICE AS IT LOOKS DOES NOT HAVE A DOCTOR ON STAFF, NO FIRST AID ROOM, NO OXYGEN TANKS. I REMEMBER A DOCTOR WHO HAPPENED TO BE A GUEST THERE AT THE RESORT WHO AIDED THE CHILD SCREAMED FOR AN OXYGEN TANK & THE HOTEL STAFF JUST STOOD THERE HELPLESS. I DON\'T BLAME THE SECURITY GUARDS BECAUSE I KNOW THEY TOO WERE DRAMATIZED TO SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON...I BLAME THE BIG PEOPLE FROM THE RESORT THAT DO NOT PROVIDE THEIR STAFF WITH CPR TRAINING AS MUCH MONEY AS THE RESORT MUST MAKE. PARENTS PRIMARILY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR CHILDREN I KNOW I HAVE 4 BOYS & I WAS ALWAYS WITH THEM ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY WERE IN THE WATER. PARENTS IT\'S IMPORTANT THAT THEY WEAR LIFEVESTS & I DON\'T THINK THAT THE LITTLE BOY WAS WEARING ONE AT THE TIME...BUT IT\'S NOT SO MUCH THE FACT THAT HE DROWNED THAT I\'M TERRIFIED BECAUSE AFTERALL WHERE THERE IS WATER ANYONE IS PRONE TO HAVE AN ACCIDENT, THAT POSSIBILITY IS ALWYAS PRESENT. I\'M DISGUSTED AT THE FACT THE HOTEL STAFF HANDLED THE WHOLE SITUATION FROM BEGINNING TO END. VERY UNPREPARD. IT\'S SAD TO MENTION, BUT MAYBE THE CHILD WOULD STILL BE ALIVE HAD HELP GOTTEN TO HIM SOON. THE FUNNY THING IT\'S THAT THE NEXT MORNING A FRIEND OF MINE ASKED ONE OF THE SECURITY GUARDS ABOUT THE BOY & HE RESPONDED THAT THE BOY WAS FINE NOT KNOWING I GUESS THAT WE KNEW WHAT HAD HAPPENED. I UNDERSTAND THAT THE HOTEL IS WATCHING OUT FOR IT\'S REPUTATION BUT THEY SHOULD TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE PAIN OF THE BOY\'S FAMILY. I ALSO WANT TO MENTION THE WAY A MAN FROM THEIR SALES DEPT. ACTED....HE STINKS!!!...AFTER SHARING WITH HIM ABOUT WHAT HAD HAPPENED HE REPLIED THAT IT WAS ALL THE PARENTT\'S RESPONSIBILITY AND HE HAD NOTHING ELSE TO SAY. HE SHOWED NO REMORSE AT NO GIVEN MOMENT WAS HE APOLOGITIC NO HUMAN SENTIMENT AT ALL HE CERTAINLY GIVES LAS PALOMAS A BAD NAME ON TOP OF EVERYTHING ELSE MENTIONED BUT HE REPRESENTS THE ICING ON THE CAKE. IN ALL PUERTO PENASCO IS A WONDERFUL PLACE JUST LIKE A LOT OF PLACES IN MEXICO, BUT WE CERTAINLY WONT\'S BE STAYING THERE AGAIN. AMONGST MY FRIENDS & US WE PAID FOR 6 ROOMS FOR THE WEEK OF AUGUST 2-8 2009. WE\'LL BE TAKING OUR MONEY TO ANOTHER RESORT NEXT TIME. AS FOR THE BOY\'S FAMILY WE SEND OUR CONDOLENCES & PRAY THAT GOD GIVES THEM THE STRENGHT THEY NEED TO EASE THEIR PAIN/LOSS SOMEWAY/SOMEHOW.
Great location!! We just got back from our first trip to Rocky Point, and what a great experience it was. Click here to read more

Very nice resort Condo:
Our party included 2 adults and 5 kids so we stayed in a 3 bedroom / 3 bath suite in the Ruby Building (building C). It was furnished like a show room and it included 2 master bedrooms with gorgeous baths and a smaller room set up with two small twins.
Keep in mind that since these are all privately owned, they are furnished uniquely by owners personal tastes.
Food: We were surprised at the lack of restaurants. There was one and it was VERY expensive. After the first night took most of our $, we went to the closest town where Revoluccion and Constitucion Streets are and found some taco stands were. We ate like royalty for $20! We didn't know until the last night of our stay that you could follow Benito Juarez Blvd to the old Port area where there were many more choices and fun shopping. That is what we have to look forward to next time!
Pool/Beach: The pools and lazy river were great but I would recommend to bring your own tube. There were very few and if you weren't there to claim yours by 8 a.m. you didn't get one. The beach had the softest sand I ever felt-softer than Hawaii or Cancun. Many shells could be found by collectors in the evening, especially in the area near where new building is happening. Bring a flashlight to explore along the shore line when the tide is low at night.
My rating: I rated lower than best since I spent too many hours waiting for towel and maid service. They recorded that our room was cleaned but it wasn't and it took 4 phone calls to the front desk (and 2 hours) to get clean towels to shower. Also I was not expecting there to be no food there, which put us out.
Las Palomas delivers Spent a recent November weekend with the wife at Las Palomas, our first visit to the property. Click here to read more
