We arrived to this place to stay one night but we liked it so much that we stayed a second night. Palapas Ventana is a great place to plan your fishing trips, or to go kitesurfing, they have complimentary kayaks, breakfast and lunch. People there were very friendly. The view of the sea Cortes was just so beautiful, the sunrises... More

I can't say enough about Palapas Ventana. By way of background, a buddy and I were looking to go spearfishing for a few days and all we really needed was a place to eat our fish, shower, grab some beers, gain occasional access to wifi, and sleep. The food was incredible. Every meal was substantial, delicious, and cooked with local... More

This was the trip of a lifetime for my family. Palapas Ventana's accommodations were fabulous. We stayed in the grey casita. The view was spectacular and the room was very clean and spacious. The food was incredible. Amazing margaritas, phenomenal fish tacos, and a delicious tres leche dessert. The restaurant atmosphere was great. Wonderful people sharing fun stories about the... More

Just spent a week at Palapas Ventana with a buddy and can't say enough good things about it. The staff is so wonderful -- friendly, fun, invested in your enjoyment -- that it really makes the stay. The food was fantastic, the location was unbeatable, the accommodations were clean and comfortable, and they organized everything for us from Kiteboarding lessons... More

This is a wonderful place run by exceptionally friendly and interesting people who have a great staff from various countries around the world. I stayed in the azul casita, which doesn't have a toilet or shower but the communal showers and toilet were close by and always clean. The bed was comfortable and the view from the porch a constant... More

My 3rd stay at PV. Spent four days with the wife at PV with my primary goal to spearfish in world class waters. The entire staff is friendly and accommodating, Ruben (the chef) cooked some excellent meals with the fish we speared. PV is without a doubt at the top of my list when it comes to spearfishing in Baja!... More

I recently got back from a 13 day stay at Palapas Ventana and this was my second visit to this all-encompassing hotel/restaurant/grill/bar. This isn't a place to stay if you want to be pampered. It's more of a rustic experience although it does have a few modern amenities that make it more comfortable, i.e., WiFi. This is a place to... More

We stayed here 2 nights based on reviews from TripAdvisor. I wouldn't give it 5 stars, but it is worthy of 3.5-4.0. I'm sure for guests looking to fish, spear fish or kite board, it would be a bit stronger. We booked a couple of the new casitas with their own bathrooms and they were great! The food was okay,...

When we drove from Cabo to Todo Santos and then to La Ventana we didn't know what to expect. the ride was reasonably good with the exception of the potholes and the cattle... but not bad crossing the mountains from La Paz. When we arrived at Palapas Ventana we were not sure...the check-in area and general surroundings was cluttered and... More

What a great place. The fishing was excellent. The food is over the top! The staff is super friendly and always trying to make you stay better. The accommodations are very clean and comfortable. We cannot wait to go back! Thanks Tim and your staff. Tom and Chris from the San Francisco Bay Area.
