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!

We took our honeymoon here in September and LOVED it! The staff is so friendly and very nurturing. You have a private butler who ensures you have everything you need. What an amazing resort. I can't wait to return!

Wow, stayed in a 4bedroom house on the golf course that came with 2 golf carts for transportation. Very exclusive, a must do for the pampered. Plenty of movie stars lurking around. We saw Jack Black, Tom Brady with Gisselle and Naomi Campbell. Not bad company. Did a fishing trip and caught 8 Dorado(Mahi Mahi) in just two hours, epic.... More

After visiting this resort once before we raved about it when we went home. Our daughter was blown away at our descriptions since she has been all over since she was a youngster. So I asked her what trip she wanted for her HS grad present and she said O&O Palmilla. The attention to detail and luxurious atmosphere were once... More
