We were told to expect high end luxury and incredible service, and the One&Only Palmilla did not disappoint! Very attentive, and they think of everything! Ocean views were incredible and our suite was spacious, comfortable and luxurious. Staff go out of their way to take care of any want or need you may have. Several dining options on-site were very good. Pools were awesome with attentive service. Very enjoyable resort vacation!

I very rarely write reviews however, I left in this case it was so necessary. My husband & I just returned from a 4 day trip to the One & Only Palmilla. Everything about this resort is perfect. We left our kids at home but saw lots of families here and we cannot wait to return with our boys. The hotel is beautiful it feels more like a home than a hotel. The grounds are breathtaking & most of all the staff. They are an absolute credit to the hotel. They will do everything they can to make the stay perfect. I would say this hotel is perfect for couples, families, generational trips. It really has everything to offer

One and Only is amazing. We have stayed at Montage and Nobu past two Cabo trips (see my glowing reviews for both). Those hotels are sleek and desert modern vibes - and The One and Only is in a category of its own! Classic beauty with mature landscaping, and beautiful swimmable beach. The standard rooms far exceed their newer competitors standard rooms - they are huge, and all have an ocean view. One and Only’s grounds are also more impressive than their newer counterparts. Less “vibey”, more low-key relaxation at One and Only - in a good way. Food options are amazing - we ate onsite 4 of 5 nights. The proximity of the hotel is quick to Flora Farms - worth the 20 min drive to mix it up. Wine prices are insane - stop at Costco or elsewhere to stock up if fine wine is important to you (Nobu wine selection was better, and food options competitive with One and Only. Montage food and beverage weakest of the three hotels). Staff is top notch, location top notch. Will be back!

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and loved our time there. The staff was pleasant and helpful especially our butler Javier. He shared a lot of great stories with us and made our experience even more enjoyable. We mostly stayed at the Pelican Beach for tanning and water activities (snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle boarding). The food at the resort was decent and the only thing we would recommend is more variety of food at breakfast. Overall we would recommend people to stay at this resort when visiting Los Cabos!

We were recently at The One and Only Palmilla for a wedding. The service, safety, and quality were all outstanding. The property is amazing, with outstanding views of the ocean. The landscaping makes you feel like you are in a tropical paradise. Manuel was a server at several functions. He remembered our names from the first day, and always made sure everyone had a great experience. Edgar, the morning bartender was a wealth of knowledge and gave us many good ideas for our planned visit to San Jose del Cabo. Our butter was also amazing. We asked him to put ice in our room at 3PM, as we thought we would be returning at 3:30PM. We got back early, and he brought the ice exactly at 3PM. Everyone was very nice, so we highly recommend a visit to Palmilla.

Our recent 4 night stay at Palmilla was our 6th visit to the resort over the years but first since the pandemic. It is absolutely clear to me however that this resort has re-emerged stronger than it ever was before. It seems the resort has returned to many of the things we enjoyed over the years without sacrificing anything. We enjoyed food from all over the resort and every meal was fantastic. The spa lives up to its reputation and the service is un-paralleled. Honestly, I know it is hard to be perfect (especially with a resort as service oriented as Palmilla) but this is the closest to perfect you will ever find, period.

Stay atThe One and Only, Palmilla, its the BEST hotel in Los Cabos. I know its expensive and it doesn't have the hippest atmosphere or clientele, but the atmosphere is classic and the best location, food, atmosphere and service in all of Los Cabos...hands down! You will not be disappointed, I promise! I know its clientele is a little older than some of the other hotels in the same price range but Palmilla is the best of the best!

We had the privilege of staying at the One&Only Palmilla in early May and from start to finish, the experience was exceptional. The employees are kind, helpful, knowledgable, and courteous. The grounds are immaculate - a true tropical paradise. Our room overlooked the ocean with a terrific patio/veranda with sweeping views and the bed was probably the best hotel bed we've ever slept in. We ate at several of the resort's restaurants and all were truly exceptional as well. Do not skip the French toast in the morning at Breeze! They had a terrific deal that included an extra night's stay and complimentary breakfast every day, which definitely took the sting out of the hefty price tag. While the bill at checkout will make you shudder, we had no regrets. The cost was commensurate with the experience - we are already planning (and budgeting) for our next visit!
