A five-star experience! Beautiful secluded location, exceptionally attentive staff and outstanding food.

Paradise!!! Loved it! Location is far from the city but nice and secluded

First class from start to finish! The accommodations and views where beyond what we expected.

Relaxation, amenities, pampering, the staff and grounds were unbelievable and we can't wait to go back!

Gorgeous grounds and views, warm and attentive service. Norbert passed through, creating huge waves that were thrilling to watch from our beautiful balcony. We only wished our flight had been canceled so that we could stay longer!

Great Hotel, we couldn't be happier with what we experienced.

Awesome and magical place! Unbelievable service! It's a MUST!!

By far, the most amazing resort experience ever! The most beautiful grounds, the most friendliest staff and the most breathtaking views around! This is luxury vacationing at its best. The service is what makes it. You are treated like royalty every minute. I highly recommend it to anyone that is looking for a unforgettable experience!!

We recently stayed at the One and Only Palmilla. We were able to get a very discounted rate. A lot of celebraties stay here, because of the service, great food, and seclusion. Such a beautiful property, excellent service (your own personal butler), large room with private balcony, and great food and drinks. We ate at Suviche one night and spent $360 for 2 people, sharing dinner. Be careful, most items are very expensive on property. We went to downtown San Jose for dinner the other nights and had wonderful meals for much cheaper. Overall a great experience!

Top notch resort. Nothing bad I can say. Incredible staff.

My wife and I love this place and can't say enough good things about it. This was our second time here and it was just as enjoyable as the first. Service and amenities are impeccable. The views are breathtaking. We love the more "private" nature of this resort and how the staff are attentive to your every need. Most of our time was spent on the beach in one of the many beautiful cabanas, where we enjoyed lunch and bird watching. Last time we went in March, the temperature was cooler (low- to mid-80s F, with low humidity) and had fun whale watching. We experienced higher temperatures this time in mid-June (low- to mid-90s F, high humidity) and felt like Europe in early July.

One and Only Palmilla is by far the best resort I have ever stayed!!! Everything about it was perfect!! The location...the staff...the cleanliness...the food....the activities....the spa... The list goes on and on. It was definitely worth the price!! I can't wait to go back again!!

If you’re looking for “Heaven on Earth”, then visit the One & Only in Palmilla. From the moment you arrive, the gracious staff at this enchanting resort is genuinely delighted to meet you and can’t do enough to make your stay a memorable one. The restaurants are a culinary pleasure; our favorite is “Aqua by Laribi!”. We requested a special menu one evening and Chef Laribi did not disappoint. Each room has a personal butler, who is at your beck and call….from a simple request for dinner reservations or picking up sunscreen that we forgot to pack to arranging a romantic dining experience on the beach. The only negative is having to leave...

Love this hotel..only the finest!...treated us like royalty!

Celebrated our 10th Anniversary! Staff was great and accommodating to us...made us feel special. This is a luxurious hotel and you will feel like your in paradise!

What a gorgeous property! Much bigger than I had antitipated. Here are some of the memorable highlights: complimentary water in the room, complimentary tequila and fruit popsicles upon arrival, great selection of non motorized water sports (the paddle boarding was my favorite), attentive staff with huge smiles on their faces, exquisite wine selection, dinner at Market was cooked to perfection, the gym is top notch and offers wonderful spin and other aerobics classes. The property itself is absolutely gorgeous, with a great combination of pool and beach. A must stay for families with little children, as well as romantic getaway for couples. This is a must for your bucket list!

it is beutifull with safe beach for swimming close to the hotel , the hotel was insiede al green area and in armony with the natura arround , the service is great , the poisition is perfect , the church is lovely , i raccomend stay more than 7 deays

My husband and I went to the One & Only Palmilla in Cabo for our 15 year anniversary and we were treated like Kings and Queens. You are catered to at every level and they pull out all the stops. We will never stay anywhere else.

Look no further. This is the best hotel in Los Cabos. Book it. You won't be disappointed. The hotel is simply gorgeous. Every detail is taken care of so you can just relax and enjoy yourself. Upon arrival, we were greeted by name and given fresh fruit popsicles. We were given a short tour of the hotel, shown to our room and then assigned a personal butler for just about anything we wanted. Our room was spacious, well appointed and the view was simply breathtaking. From our balcony, the ocean was a stone's throw away. Wife really enjoyed the spa experience. The food is delicious and the view from every restaurant is picture perfect. Beaches are clean, well-maintained and beautiful. Wife loved the spa experience. Highly recommended! We can't wait to go back!

We stayed at One and Only Palmilla for a week in March 2013. We typically stay in 4 and 5 star hotels, but even so it was a splurge. I was not disappointed in our choice. The juxtaposition of the Sea of Cortez and the desert/mountains made for a truly beautiful backdrop. Our greatest enjoyment came from watching the whales from the pool each day, and I'm not sure I'll ever have a bigger thrill that being 20-30 feet from them while on a paddleboard. The service was without flaw, and I felt that the staff was truly friendly. We thought the food, although quite expensive (plan on $100 lunches), was terrific and particularly enjoyed the little free treats that we passed out poolside and brought to our room. The fitness center was quite nice, and the cost of personal training and classes is included in the resort fee. The spa was lovely. I would forgo the cost of a transfer by the hotel ($140 each way) and get a cab ($35). Next time I think I would probably rent a car a explore Baja Sud a bit more. Two minor complaints -- I found the shampoo/conditioner etc . . . very nice and pretty, but it is difficult to extract conditioner and lotion from them. Also, housekeeping would occasionally forget little pieces of trash (sugar packets etc. . .) on the floor and was not particularly good about keeping us stocked in coffee pods, tea, etc . . . Nevertheless, these were minor inconveniences and will not deter us from returning at some point. The One and Only's reputation is well-deserved.
