This review is long overdue. Our family spent Thanksgiving week 2012 at the One & Only Palmilla and I have to say it was the most relaxing, enjoyable trip we have ever spent together.
The resort is beautiful and service is superlative. What really made the trip special for us, though, was the kids club. The kids club is almost like a super fun preschool/ activity center. The things that they planned for the kids were so fun and memorable. The kids went to the restaurant one day and made sushi; they made pinatas; guacamole; so many things. They had movie nights with beanbag chairs and popcorn. My kids were in heaven. The kids club was NOT the typical dreary dumping ground that I have seen at other hotels. It was just fabulous. We also used several different babysitters and they were all fantastic. Since the kids were so well taken care of, we were allowed to truly relax and enjoy the beauty of the resort.
Other things that made the vacation so special:
turtle release into the beach!
We hope to return next year!
