There is a simple continental breakfast provided where plans for the day are discussed and ideas exchanged. It seems that most guests have stayed at the hotel year after year...

Upon arrival, the wedding guests were graciously greeted by the beautiful gardens and of course the manager, Kyla. She treated everyone with the uppermost respect, made us all feel very welcome and comfortable. No one had to walk very far from their room to get...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the picturesque seaside town of Melaque, the beauty and serenity of old Mexico lives on. Here at La Paloma, an intimate resort, culture and traditional hospitality combine with modern technology and the singular artistic vision of its owners. Conveniently located a couple of blocks from the town square and shopping, yet when you step through the gate, you're miles away from the world outside in a safe, secure, garden paradise. Each of the 14 different rooms have their own uniqueness with wonderful views and amenities designed for your comfort. We are not your average hotel... We are your Home away from Home. ... more   less
