The One & Only Palmilla's reputation as a premiere beach resort is well-deserved. Since seeing Hollywood actors pics there in publications like People Magazine for years we finally had an opportunity to stay there. The staff patting their hearts every time they interact with you creates an instant bond. The personal butlers are very friendly, kind, helpful and seemingly all... More

There aren't enough words to describe this place. A quiet mature hotel, super accommodating for anything you need. The beach has gazebos and hammocks (although there are rocks that you should avoid). Food is fantastic. Staff are amazing, no one goes unnoticed by them. The waterfront room had easy access to the beach with a shower right outside. Can't wait... More

Friends told us about the One and Only so we decided to give it a try. The resort is beautiful, and manages to mix outrageous luxury with natural, charming beauty. This hotel has mastered the art of unobtrusive service. It was almost as if the staff could read our minds. Our room was large and gorgeous. Our butler was on... More

I was here for a three day weekend with my significant other. We arrived, picked up in an air conditioned SUV (thank god it was sweltering hot outside) with water, drove to the property and welcomed by a small group of staff who knew our names and handed us popsicles. They took the luggage to our room and we had... More

From the moment you arrive to the farewell when you check out, staying at the One & Only is an unforgettable experience. The grounds, rooms, pools and restaurants are beautiful, the service is unmatched and the ambience is understated luxury throughout. Yes, it's expensive but it is also great value.

This is my third trip to the Palmilla. I would have been there a lot more but I occasionally get to "mooch" off a friend who has a house at Villa del Mar...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A verdant oasis on the tip of the Baja Peninsula. Where azure waters greet the mountainous desert and the Pacific Ocean merges with the Sea of Cortez. Where warm waves break onto a dramatic shoreline… and gray whales can be seen rising majestically in the distance. Here, the gracious style of Old Mexico - with its red-tiled roofs, whitewashed walls, and idyllic setting of exquisite fountains - is quietly nestled amidst swaying palms, bird of paradise and other tropical bloom. ... more   less
