La Paloma Oceanfront Retreat

Traveler (52)
Room & Suite (19)
Pool & Beach (14)


In the picturesque seaside town of Melaque, the beauty and serenity of old Mexico lives on. Here at La Paloma, an intimate resort, culture and traditional hospitality combine with modern technology and the singular artistic vision of its owners. Conveniently located a couple of blocks from the town square and shopping, yet when you step through the gate, you're miles away from the world outside in a safe, secure, garden paradise. Each of the 14 different rooms have their own uniqueness with wonderful views and amenities designed for your comfort. We are not your average hotel... We are your Home away from Home.

Our room was HUGE and had gorgeous view of the ocean. The property is well maintained with beautiful gardens to admire. It's a small hotel, so you don't have to worry about overcrowding at the pool. It's a great value for those seeking a place on the beach.

Kyla and her small team of staff have created a concept for LaPaloma that is truly relaxing and laid back. Our ocean view room (#1) overlooking the pool was large, clean and comfortable. King size bed was a bit hard but this is very common for Mexico! The daily continental

Bed was very hard, poor air conditioning. No elevator, our room was on the top floor, 3 stories up so quite a climb and no offer of assistance. Gate into the property is kept locked so needed to knock on the gate to get someone to open up and tell us where we could park. After

Yoga with Aynsley or Pierrette! They have wonderful classes. Or you may also check out the schedule for the yoga center in Barra with Kalina :) She has some wonderful options. As far as Massage, We do not recommend as every massage therapist is different and every client is different. We do use Norma here at the hotel and our guests love her so maybe you might like to look her up? Good luck!

"I would recommend the rooms on the ground or first floors because the stairs are steep."
"Ocean facing rooms if you enjoy the sound of surf"
"Every room in La Paloma is unique we prefer the privacy of room 11"
"Every room is great but if you want something special choose a penthouse"
"We had an ocean view with a huge private patio complete with two lounge chairs, table and umbrella...loved it!"
