My wife and I spent our 20 year anniversary at the One and Only. The property was outstanding and room was very nice with a great view. The spa is also very good, they should be clear on pricing. The location is very close to airport and they pick you up. We spent 4 days and never left the property...

This is the place for a lifetime treat the staff and place are beyond your dreams! You can relax in all of the places in the resort and having a separate area for adults was absolutely great. The views are breathe taking a true enjoyment.

Wow. That's what I kept saying! The minute you step out of the car you are greeted as if you are truly "one and only" guest they are attending to. Your personal butler will tell you " to call him anytime for anything". You will find yourself just staring out at the beautiful and blue water from your private terrace...

I have been traveling to Palmilla for over 20 years. The resort has only become better each year. It still maintains the quiet beautiful ambience, and the quaint "old section" of rooms, suites, and pool cabanas, and at the same time stays modern and progressive with Jean George Seared!! There is no better resort in Cabo for relaxing, quiet, private,...

The resort was great and delivered at every turn. Service and rooms were outstanding along the restaurants and staff. if you want the best service out of any hotel in CABO this is the place to stay when you don't have to worry about the budget.

Just returned from another unforgettable stay at O&O Palmilla. We can always count on amazing service, amenities, food and anything else we might need. This year we ate at Suviche (3 times), Seared, Aqua for breakfast and Breeze by the pool during the day. Everything was excellent. Big thanks to Joel and Manuel at Breeze for taking great care of...

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your lovely review. You do a fabulous job of sharing the variety of ways a guest can enjoy their time on property. Lounging by our oceanfront pools, tasting regional cuisine at our award-winning restaurants or spotting whales off the shore, for instance. We will let Joel and Manuel know that their service made a...

Disappointing service but beautiful property . Staff was friendly but inconsistently attentive . Room description was very misleading. An excellent experience with a private photography company . Prefer other Cabo properties.

Spectacular setting, excellent service, and a real gem of a resort. The restaurants are good not great - best is Agua. Food is priced at New York + 20%. Frankly too much. And alcohol even higher. The resort is amazing - and I guess today that comes at this exorbitant premium.

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
