One of the top hotels in the world, certainly number One in Mexico.
Exquisite service and amenities in a stunning beach and jungle setting. The treehouse rooms are simply wonderful with pinch yourself views of the ocean and shoreline. Butler Service is superb. Food and restaurants are excellent.

We are so confused by all the glowing reviews of this hotel. We are die hard One&Only fans but this hotel was such a let down.... so underwhelming. The transportation issue is a serious problem at the property- we thought people were being dramatic but you are constantly waiting for buggy service- sometimes as long as 30 minutes! nightmare. and there is no real way around this since the property is so large, spread out over rolling hills- it is truly not walkable.

A lot of kinks to iron out in regards to dining and service- no consistency across the different restaurants. Food was pretty awful overall in our experience. In room-dining showed up cold and missing items every time we ordered to the villa.

Overall, if you're expecting the type of service you experience at One&Only Palmilla and other luxury hotels.... you will be very disappointed. Go somewhere else! We hated it so much we left a day early.

We just returned from a blissful four night stay at the One & Only Mandarina. Words cannot express how lovely our experience was. Beyond the incredible accommodations and the stunning facilities, it was really the employees that left a lasting impression upon us. The family of Mandarina welcomed us with exceptional hospitality and an authentic sense of care for us as guests. Our butler Christian Lorenzo went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. For example, my companion had forgotten her contact lense case and Christian went to the trouble after his evening shift to head into town to purchase one and deliver it to our villa the next morning. I believe that every employee we encountered strove to deliver a sense of pride in their service. Our incredible breakfasts were even customized for dietary issues without hesitation by our attentive and charming server Jessica Hernandez. Every meal was a delight, especially the fish tacos which we couldn’t wait to devour after a long relaxing beach day.
The Jetty Beach club was a delight thanks to the ever present Adolfo Muñiz who never missed a beat. There were plenty of activities to keep all of us occupied when we decided to lift ourselves from the lounge chairs. We took an incredible surfing lesson from Mike Pinneo via Tropicsurf and hit the state of the art gym and spa every morning. In the evenings we enjoyed glorious sunsets, fabulous dining and were introduced to other guests by the hotel’s illustrious GM, Serge Ditesheim.

Four days flew by and we cannot wait to return.
Thank you One & Only Mandarina for making our trip one that we will never forget!

Until soon,

Abrazos

The indescribable beauty of the hotel and its grounds, combined with exceptional service, cuisine and luxury, make the One and Only Mandarina the best hotel we have ever stayed at in Mexico and one of the best in the world. Our panoramic cliff suite was magnificent, with amazing views of the ocean and we spent many hours on our spacious deck gazing at the pelicans and amazing sunsets. The talented GM Serge Ditesheim has created a warm and welcoming but at the same time chic atmosphere in gorgeous surroundings with five star cuisine. What a way to recharge in these challenging times!

Cliffside dwellings demand golf cart services to move around. Waited more than 30 mins/each day for carts to move around. Has to be a better system. Coatimondi invasion. Sharing high-end trip with raccoons is not fun.
