If you need palace to get clean after a couple of days on a desert island in the Sea of Cortez, you can't do better than this place. The Adult pool, an early morning walk on the beach, spa treatment, yoga (to stretch and relax that body that was just kayak and tent bound) and a million thread count sheets... More

I loved this resort. It is one of the best I have stayed at in Mexico. It was for a birthday and the room was filled with balloons and cake! Service was amazing. The infinity pool amazing. It was nice to have some quiet time down by the ocean on the swinging beds. Can't swim in the ocean however, if... More

Went down for a long weekend get-a-way and really enjoyed it. We had a one bedroom suite with a plunge pool facing the ocean, which was lovely. Just watching the huge waves crash while lazing in the pool was entertaining! The restaurants at the resort were all fantastic, by American standards - and priced as such. It's certainly not a...

This hotel is a clasic for Cabo. Even though it migh look old, the rooms have been completely renovated. There are details everywhere which come as unexpected and do draw a smile on your face. It has one of the best spas in Mexico, and I would make the trip just to get a couple of, expensive but worth every... More

I am so lucky to have visited this property 3 times. It is the best! If it is in your budget book here now. Food, staff, drinks, amenities are unmatched. You will feel like royalty during your stay and want to travel there again!

This is an amazing property and one to check off your bucket list. I loved our visit, but wouldn't need to return. Not my kind of vacation. It is perfect if you want to stay at the hotel and be pampered at every turn. Personally, I can only take a day or two of that, I would rather be out... More

Everything was beyond expectations. We had butler and chef. Our chef went out of his way to cook what we requested on the nights we ate in. They hooked me up with a fishing expedition, cleaned everything we caught and then made us a dinner that was out of the box. We will definitely go back again. We stayed a... More

The rooms are gorgeous. The food is great. The activities and unique little getaway spots within the resort are very special. It is pricey and it's a large property so if those things would bother you, this might not be the place for you. Back to how much I enjoyed my stay there....I loved the spa. The outdoor hot pool...

One & Only Palmilla treats you like family and there were tears during our departure. Comfortable rooms, beyond excellent views. Turn down service is one of the best I've seen. All restaurants are excellent the spa is a must-do. We have nothing but positive experiences with the staff and services. Would return in a heartbeat.

Was there last September. The staff were beyond attentive and thoughtful and efficient. Room was beautiful and resort was top notch in every way. Spa was excellent and food was delicious. The service at the pool was unparalleled. No reason to leave at all the resort while there. Would definitely go back!
