A very special place that despite its age is the #1 place in Cabo. An excellent meal with first class service. The fish tacos were superb as was everything else. What a great view whales breaching boats gong by and an entirely perfect environment.

First time at an One & Only Resort and it lived up to its promises! Get the airport transfer -- so much more than just a vehicle transfer: it sets the tone of welcome! Over-the-top luxury and exquisite, warm service with a smile in a spectacularly gorgeous setting. So many little things done right! Aromatherapy at bed turn-downs, a personal...

Great location. The staff was phenomenal. Food at Agua and Seared was tremendous. 1st floor rooms were a bit noisy from the people above and we did not receive our choice of bed when we first arrived.

I've been fortunate to travel the world and stay in quite a few five star properties and resorts. They all pale in comparison to the Palmilla. The property itself was stunning, the cleanliness was simply unparalleled, the food was Epicurean, the Spa stunning and the staff served with their heart and their head. What an amazing experience.

This resort is far nicer than expected. You have all the privacy you could ever ask for even though the staff far outnumbers the guests. The food and drink was very expensive but very good. The staff was helpful and the grounds are immaculate.

I have really, literally, and mostly, been everywhere....with no expense spared. I'm neither proud of this nor looking for recognition or judgement. I write this because I have the experience to rate Palmilla, One and Only as the best that there has ever been. Lets begin with the facility itself. You cannot walk a step without unique artistic adornment, which...

Our family of four had a spectacular few days at One & Only Palmilla!

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
