I have to admit it was a wonderful experience. The highest level of service, truly spectacular view and good tasty food. We had lunch there. Drive into the complex, valet park and they take you by cart to the restaurant. Everyone is dressed in beautiful crisp uniforms. It was not that crowded and we had a table overlooking the water....

The drive in is spectacular. If you are looking for a romantic place to enjoy a cocktail you must visit Agua at Palmilla. We had the pleasure of showing up around 9:00pm and had the place to ourselves with live entertainment. ❤️Five star all the way here at Palmilla.

Aqua is one of four resort restaurants and the one with the best view. It is located on the north side of the resort so you see the Cabo coast and the Sea of Cortez. Our package included a full breakfast each day and they have really good Mexican breakfast along with traditional American food. We had dinner here one... More

Eating amongst the 6 Stars! Incredible service and atmosphere. Kept warm by the heaters and the richy rich folk all around. But not pretense or snobbishness. Kind and service above and beyond. Ample food and delicious fries...>Soooooo good. The view of San Jan Del Cabo, waves Crashing on the Rocks. Sitting beside an beautifully lit pool in such Opulence. A... More

Overall we liked this place. The food was better than Esperanza, the service was very good. The drawbacks are that they brought everything out a little too quickly for a fine dining establishment, and that the atmosphere was average. The dining room was a little like the buffet room at a large Vegas casino. I would say go if you... More

Having visited both Agua and the competitor at Las Ventanas, I definitely preferred the food and service at Agua this year. Last year, i would've said Las V. Excellent food and great service at a beautiful resort.

From the moment we arrived at the gates of the One and Only Palmila resort we were treated like royalty ..we had allowed extra time before our reservation to explore the grounds..a staff at the resort gave us an impressive tour on a golf cart. Our service at the restaurant was impeccable complete with a special rack by our table... More
