In June and July we stayed here for 6 nights. We chose for this hotel because we’ve read good reviews online and we’ve met people that stayed here too. Because we rented a car for our holiday, Dos Palmas was a good start and ending point. The owner helped us by renting a car from a good company named Thrifty.... More

The plays is very tiny, and very, very noisy. It is on a very busy road, and there is not tropical garden (as the travel agent said), and no swimming pool (just a whole with some water). The planes are practically landing in your bed, and you here every car. Rooms were not clean, and the wifi does not reach... More

They were very friendly and accommodating. I'd forgotten my phone charger and they lent me one overnight with a smile. Breakfast was decent. The facilities are older and dated, but clean and large rooms. Great price!

I have stayed numerous times at Dos Palmas Airport. I have found the rooms to be clean, large but on a busy street and sometimes in the flight path, the best part is the friendly staff that Peter Hoffmans has placed there. The room is moderately priced for the traveler and includes breakfast, cable TV and Wi-fi. The units all... More

This was our 2nd stay at this small airport-close hotel. The price is half what we have paid at the big chain hotels nearby, & the property is clean & charming. The rooms are not fancy, no A/C just ceiling fans, but are comfortable & include kitchenettes & front-porch rocking chairs. There's a pool and a communal bar/patio area in... More

The rooms are big and clean. Peter, the owner, can get you a great deal with car rental. The interns from Holland, Rosa and Tadzio, are friendly, polite and very helpful. In the evening, Rosa and Tadzio sat and talked with us. Lots of laughs that evening. We stayed at this hotel because it is located close to the airport.... More

We stayed here two nights, before flying home. Very close to the airport and right next to a casino. Clean room, Friendly people and a big breakfast. Would stay here again. The pool was small, would have used it, but the weather was cold.

At the end of your trip you can deliver your car at the accomodation and Dos Palmas will arrange transfer to the airport. Peter and Flor (owners) helps you with everything.
