I've known this place for couple of years now. Puts you in a right spot to get to know famous Los Cabos outside the mainstream tourist area. Right on the beach; part of an authentic fishing village yet with very easy access to all commodities within 5 min drive. Due to Palapa's tropical garden, it feels like a zen oasis... More

My husband and I stayed at Palapas Resort for 4 nights in January 2013. John was very welcoming and helpful. We rented a cabana which was tiny but clean and functional. The size was not a problem given that the grounds have plenty of common space including an outdoor kitchen, patio tables/chairs, hammocks, and an elevated infinity pool. The beach... More

We were two couple who stayed for four nights in May. We were very pleased with the accommodations. We were the only guests there. It was very peaceful and at night you were lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. The Palapas resort is very close to the beach and within walking distance to a couple of good... More

My husband and I booked a flight and this resort the day prior to leaving. John, the owner was quick to respond to our email so we could make our arrangements. We were looking for a different vacation from the all-inclusives and saw the Palapas Resort online. It was as good as the reviews - quiet, out-of-the-way yet close to... More

My wife and I stayed three nights at Palapas Resort before heading to Todos Santos for the remainder of our trip. It was a quiet and comfortable place that we enjoyed all to ourselves. John the owner lives on site and treated us as guests in his home but did not bother us a bit as we came and went.... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at La Palapas for a couple of nights at the end of our Baja visit. The Location is fantastic if you are looking for something a little more authentic and less touristy. We wandered over to La Playita after a great meal at the Container near the marina. Yes, you can... More

Palapas is a wonderful retreat. I rented the cabana right next to a water fountain, which many species of birds frequented. It was just one of the many natural things to enjoy at Palapas. Eating outdoors and enjoying the surroundings was a relaxing way to start the morning. John is a fun guy, but I did have to tell him... More

My husband and I found the Palapas Resort to be a really great location for anyone who wants to be away from the commotion of the tourist corridor. That being said, the #5 bus stops outside the front gate and will take you right into the heart of historic downtown San Jose and onto the grocery stores if needed. There... More

I had a great time and felt safer here than most places in the U.S. John, the owner, is a lot of fun. He knows the area really well and can give you tips on places to go. The resort is very close to the beach and easy walking distance to the Marina. Accommodations range from a relatively simple one-room... More
