I loved being surrounded by all the colorful décor and beautiful plants. The swimming pool is really refreshing on a sunny day and has a great view looking towards the beach. John and Patty were really great hosts and know how to make their guests feel comfortable.

I think Palapas is the best place to stay in Los Cabos. The plants make you feel like you’re in a paradise jungle, and the pool water is very clean. I usually turn my nose up at most pools, but after John explained to me that he uses the water out of the pool to water his plants …and that... More

I had the privilege of staying at this wonderful place, it really has everything you need to make your stay unforgettable; beach is five minutes away by walking, a lot of good restaurants around, and the hospitality of the owner. He is very helpful and friendly. The place is really comfortable and nice, I can't wait to repeat the experience!!!!

Our stay at Palapas Resort was the perfect antidote to stress. A bit off the beaten path. We stayed in the Casa Mango which was nice for a family and had 180 degree windows that opened up to tropical breezes. John was a good host! He provided just enough help but also respected privacy and let us enjoy the grounds... More

This is a special place. It is a little oasis on the top of the hill and a 5-minute walk to a serene beach. I enjoyed doing yoga there in the mornings - you are pretty much alone and not bothered by people. The village itself is small, cute, with a picture-perfect Marina of Puerto Los Cabos and a wonderful... More

I was staying at Palapas in the beginning October 2013. It was very beautiful and close to the beach. It is landscaped with large coco palms and various flowers. There is a second story swimming pool with panoramic views of the ocean. John was very helpful and there are restaurants close by. The beach is only a short 5 minute... More

The perfect place to stay close to San Jose del Cabo but still in a tipical fishers town. Close to the beach and near to the brand new Marina of Puerto Los Cabos. You can easily walk to cozy restaurants like The Drunk Sailor and The Container, and prices are also nice! The owner, John, is always willing to help... More

I have stayed at Palapas 3 times now and I keep going back! We like to fish the famous Gordo Banks on the Pangas out of the new Marina (ask for Tomas Cantor). We stay in Casa Mango and it's like having our own private mexican villa for a week! The owner John is great.. He is there if you... More
