“Beautiful Little Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

We loved our stay at La Palmoma. Place is great, staff is even better. A few ants but it is Mexico. There harmless. Kyla and Antonio are great hosts and even worried when they didn't see us for a few days. We left early in the morning and got back late Quading or out snokeling. Kyla was just about to send out a search party, so you know they look after there guests. Thank-you very much for that.. Pool and ground are kept clean and really quite stunning. Can't wait to go back next year!!! Cheers

This was our first trip to Melaque and we couldn't have been happier with our choice of hotel. Kyla and Antonio took great care of us and were extremely knowledgeable and helpful during our stay. An ideal location with the ocean right out your front door and a pool over looking lovely scenery- just a stones throw from the best fish tacos in Mexico. The other guests were friendly- many had stayed there for years and were happy to help us navigate our first visit. I highly recommend La Paloma and can't wait to return!

Room Tip: Spring for the ocean view- it's worth it!

We have been going to La Paloma for ten years now and it is the best find we have ever made in Mexico. The gardens are beautiful, the pool is stunning, the location on the beach is magnificent, the rooms are unique and comfortable, Kyla and Antonio take care of you from the moment you arrive. There is an art studio for those who want to paint or take art lessons, there are many and varied restaurants available in the area..... we have been coming every year for 2 weeks but now that we have retired we upped it to three weeks and next year it will be four weeks.... we can't get enough of the place.

Room Tip: This is a small friendly place with only 13 units. All the rooms offer something unique either in va...

This was our first visit to La Paloma. It lived up to our high expectations in every way! From the moment we arrived all staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We never tired of the stunning view, beautiful beach and the best swimming pool in Melaque. The grounds, rooms and facilities were extremely well maintained. Kyla and Antonio greeted us upon our arrival and were there to meet all of our needs right up until our departure. We enjoyed meeting and getting to know the other guests. The resort had a very comfortable, secure and friendly feeling of home. Loved it so much that we booked next year's vacation before our holiday was over. Looking forward to our return visit!

Room Tip: La Paloma has 14 unique rooms to offer you...see Website for details.

This was our first trip to La Paloma. Staying there was really an amazing experience! A very nice place. Kyla and Antonio made us feel at home. We met great people there, and were very sorry for leaving the place... We will come back soon!!

This is our 3rd trip to La Paloma in less than 3 years. When you exit your taxi, Kyla and Antonio are there to welcome you. As you enter the Retreat through the large wooden door, into the Garden area you can see the meticulous handywork of Rolando the gardener. At about this time you can feel the everyday life stressors start to melt away. A short stroll down the red brick walkways will take you to whatever studio you may have selected. If you are a first timer you will realize the pictures on the website do not do this place justice. And if you are a returning guest you can witness the hard work of the staff in the off season. Once you have placed your belongings in your room you can have Antonio make you a beverage while you book your Massage by Norma or a Pedi and Mani by Dona' Angeles. (Yes, they come to the Retreat) then witness one of the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see. You awake in the morning to the continental breakfast and the best fresh squeezed O.J. on the planet courtesy of Isabelle. I could ramble on forever but if you are thinking of coming to Melaque you won't find a nicer place. At La Paloma you get that personal touch you won't find in a large Hotel or Resort. Thanks again Nancy, Kyla, Antonio, The staff and of course The dogs.

Room Tip: There is not a bad Studio on the property. It depends what you want.

Just returned from La Paloma for the 12th time in as many years. As always everything was as we expected... Perfect! Nancy and Kyla made us feel at home again and Isabelle Raul, Rolando and Tonio were ready to help in their own special ways. It is beautiful place that is well maintained and so close to everything in Melaque that we would not think of going elsewhere! Morning breakfasts and coffee with old and new friends make this a home away from home.

Room Tip: We have stayed in many different rooms and each one has it's own special ambiance!
