Loved this hotel, service was incredible and the view from our room was just beautiful. I was here for my birthday and my stay could not have been better. The service at this hotel is the best I have ever experienced. Highly recommend and can't wait to go back!

Where to begin? We are still at the resort for three more days out of 11. We like it very much. I find some of the other critics hard to understand, but We dont go to places like Dubai or Thailand as we prefer to be somewhere where we speak the language(Italy, Germany, France) We have stayed at many of...

After a couple of recommendations we decided to book at One & Only and we were quickly pleased! The resort is beautiful, Palm Trees & greenery everywhere! The grounds are endless and feel like a tropical oasis. We had a deluxe room booked but got an upgrade to a junior suite, which was gorgeous! Amazing view of the ocean, a... More

My wife and I just returned from a trip at the One and Only Palmilla. We have stayed there several times in the past, and usually stay one or two times a year without the kids for a quick trip with friends. I must say that this time, the service was not up to par. Granted, it is the end... More

I absolutely loved my stay at the One&only Palmilla. The resort is beautiful, the rooms well equipped and above all the service is impeccable. The other comments about the costs of the restaurants particularly breakfast are very valid & I booked transfers via another provider (Victors transpiration who were excellent) which cost only USD120 vs the USD320 the hotel charges....
