Right on the beach, close to town so shopping is easy, everything is very clean, everyone is very friendly and nice, landscaping is beautiful, the swimming pool and area around the pool is super and our room (# 9) was comfortable, clean with a nice deck and views of the ocean. The only thing to be aware of is that... More

Managers Kyla and Antony were there when we needed information, other wise discreet. Service was great, Ambiance was better. Short walk to intimate village with reasonable prices. Locals like us. The owner, Nancy, Kyla and Antony would share the realities of living in Melaque and Mexico. People doing real life in a real country. We really liked that. If you... More

The perfect spot to relax and regenerate. The quite and small atmosphere of La Paloma is second to none. Further the quite and empty ocean beach front is beyond compare. La Paloma is within 6 blocks of all our needs as well as the excitement of Mexico. Who could ask for more!!

Kyla and Antonio are great hosts and even worried when they didn't see us for a few days. We left early in the morning and got back late Quading or out snokeling. Kyla was just about to... More

This was our first trip to Melaque and we couldn't have been happier with our choice of hotel. Kyla and Antonio took great care of us and were extremely knowledgeable and helpful during our stay. An ideal location with the ocean right out your front door and a pool over looking lovely scenery- just a stones throw from the best... More
