PALAPAS is an amazing gem in SanJose. We choose to stay here for many reasons. John (the owner) is very accommodating, attentive, and friendly. Vida, the lovely resort manager is so helpful! They both go out of their way to help you enjoy your stay. As world travellers, we have no problem sharing, cooperating, and respecting others. In fact, we... More

We wrote about Palapas from our Dec 2014 visit and have just returned from staying at Palapas again. We spent a week in Dec 2015 and another week in Jan 2016 and once again we were not disappointed. Loved both of our weeks and felt well hosted by John and his Manager, Vida. In fact they are not just a... More

We arrived at the Palapas Resort on January 7th, and planned on staying a total of 13 days there. Our first impression was very good, this place is a great location, and has HUGE potential!!!, the grounds are very lovely, (minus the dog poop, 5 piles we saw the first day). We were greeted warmly by John, and his Assistant,... More

I’m very surprised at the extensive array of senseless and irrational thought in this review. This confusion of words and untrue comments are very misleading to say the least. This couple came January 7th and stayed for a week and then returned again the 22nd. Apparently there were no issues until they returned. I just want to say that my... More

We very much enjoyed our 8 day stay at Palapas Resort. It's located within short walking distance to a lovely, almost deserted beach, a few local restaurants and, if you don't rent a car, the local 5 bus stops right on the corner. It's less than a 10 minute drive to down town San Jose Del Cabo, which is beautiful... More

Loved the location of our little cabina at Palapas Resort. Just a short walk to the beach, fishing and excellent local restaurants. This is a great place for travelers who want to enjoy the ambiance of a small local fishing village but still have easy access to San Jose. We used the Collectivos daily to get into town. It was...

I had a disappointing experience at this promising place. I appear to be the exception and not the rule based on reviews here. Apparently things have changed since the last reviewer stayed. I have resolved the issues with the owners satisfactorily. I will give an honest and fair review of my experience. Pros: 1. Ambiance, it is out of the... More

Dear Shanya, It is so disappointing to hear all of these unfair comments about us. We were very CLEAR with you regarding the unavailability of some areas of the Inn, such as the pool, because of the HURRICANE SEASON. The very first moment you came, we offered you our best accommodation to balance the situation. Since hurricane ODILE, we understand... More

The unique and perfect retreat for a quick, budget-friendly de-stresser in Los Cabos. If you are like me and want to experience the place for the place, and not so much for the wealthy socal tourists looking to buy a slice of uppity San Diego Sur, then you will appreciate the rugged, deserted expanse of East Cabo that beckons from...

My husband and I went to Palapas for a quick 3 day vacation and it was everything we hoped it would be. Palapas is off the beaten path which is what we wanted, it was quiet, relaxing, and beautiful. John was out of town but Patty was there and she was a great hostess, very friendly, and gave us great... More

Awesome place, exceeded our expectations every day. Within easy walking distance (35 minutes) to San Jose City Centre. 150 yards from ocean on a beach that you can walk for miles. Off the beaten track from typical tourist haunts but 5 minutes from very popular local restaurants/bars and smaller ma/pa type grocery stores. City bus stops right at front door... More
