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 venue for a relaxing week of fun and great ocean sports. Definitely popular for spearfishing and great fishing in the Baja Sur. We had a great 7 days of fun, with great accommodations, good fishing with large sport fish including Wahoo, Rooster Fish, Dorado and many others. The best thing was the food, amazing food for breakfast,... More

Excellent value. I am a free dive spear fisherman and it is one of my favorite places to spear. The people work very hard to make sure every aspect of your trip meets your expectations. Not the Ritz Carlton but that is not what they want to be. Clean comfortable rooms, great restaurant and bar, knowledgeable guides and well appointed... More

My fiance surprised me by suggesting Palapas for part of our honeymoon in Baja. Being an avid adventurer who lives and breathes all manner of ocean sports - especially freediving and spearfishing I couldn't have been happier! From the moment we started planning, Jannine and Tim(owner) were extremely helpful in answering any questions and helping us with logistics such as... More

I just got back from my second trip to Palapas Ventana. My son and I went to participate in Red Sea Ocean Adventures' 8th Annual Mexican Shoot Out. Tim and all the staff there are fantastic. The boat captains know their stuff. Wi-Fi and air conditioning make life easy, and the food is always good!

Me and a few dive buddies just got back from a 9 day trip to Palapas Ventana and couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. The service was exceptional. Tim and his crew were constantly surpassing our expectations. Stan and Ismael, the two guides we went with during our stay, were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The boat captains always...
