Our room faced the mountains and we were treated to a welcoming sunrise in the morning. We would then go... More

My husband and I stayed at Tom and Paul's B&B for four nights in December 2014, and it was four days of bliss. We stayed in the suite that had two huge decks. One deck overlooked the beautiful ocean and town and the other equally large deck overlooked the valley and mountains behind La Penita. The room is massive. It's... More

This is truly an amazing place and Tom & Paul are the host's with the most! We enjoyed our 5 days at El Panorma, and the views are second to none! The bed is so amazingly comfortable (not something that is common in Mexico), and the breakfast's very yummy. In particular, Tom's special creamed eggs were amazing! The rooftop pool... More

“All rooms have a view, but 1 front & back. Not recommended for someone who has trouble with stairs or hills.”

“We stayed in the room with a view of the ocean and the valley. Its a little more $, but it experiences a wonderful breeze through the room. Well worth it. The only item to note is the area is rural, thus the Roosters (in the area) will wake you at sunrise. We got used to it as our time in La Penita for the most part followed the sun, thus early to rise and early to bed,”
