This is such a special property and the One & Only makes it absolutely spectacular. Great place to get away and be active or just relax and enjoy. It's our families favorite property in the entire world.

You have to wonder after having such a fabulous experience 10 years ago whether a property like One & Only Palmilla can keep it up. No doubt they have. The accommodations are spectacular and only usurped by the service. The butler service is one of the best in the world that I have experienced for sure. The grounds are meticulously...

we did not know about all the restaurants....but then we failed to ask because we were extremely happy!! the service was beyond our wildest dreams as were all the amenities. It would not have been as memorable without Francisco and Lorenzo. It was as if our room 2312 was their sole responsibility.

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
