Perfection

Apr 8th, 2020

My husband and I were here for 8 days in March 2020. We had extremely high expectations as have heard nothing but great things prior to our visit from friends and they were far exceeded. From the food, the grounds, the location, the staff, everything is amazing. Our room was beautiful we could watch whales swimming by every morning. The staff go above and beyond for you and you can tell they are always striving for perfection. Marco, Jose, Jacob and Clemente all helped to make our stay so enjoyable - all the staff there work so hard and are so friendly. We visited all restaurants on the property multiple times and loved each one. Palmilla as a town is a stunning slice of heaven. This way by far our favorite vacation and we cannot wait to return. The care and detail that is put into this property is evident. My only critic similar to other reviews is that everything on property is quite expensive however, in my opinion best on the level of service and quality of food/beverages provided well worth it. Very quiet there overall and was the perfect getaway for my husband and I. They do an amazing outdoor pizza dinner in the herb garden one night a wekk - highly recommend. Complementary foot massages by the pool during the day and are always coming around with small treats like frozen chocolate covered bananas and smoothies. There is always fresh fruit in your room and snacks delivered every afternoon. You can walk the beach for hours it's so long and perfectly maintained. We travel frequently and both agreed this is our favorite place to date. We ate tacos and drank tequila for a week and had the best time - this place is all you could dream of and more. Anyone who finds something to complain about with this place is just plain crazy! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

First Time at O&O Palmilla.......WOW!

Mar 22nd, 2020

This is not an inexpensive destination, but if you are considering this property, you already know that. The question, then becomes one of value....is what you get commensurate with the cost. In my opinion, the answer is "yes". To begin with, the property is incredible. It is lushly landscaped with over 200 varieties of tropical plants. They are immaculately maintained, subtly lit and even scented in the evenings. The hardscape is equally impressive, with details that not only suggest the Mexican culture, but also incorporate aspects that suggest Arabic culture. The pathways were never crowded, and always gave a private and serene feeling. And the whales......INCREDIBLE. My party had two rooms in Casa Colores, a Grand Suite and a Premier room. Both of these rooms were advertised as ocean front, though they would more fairly be classified as ocean view. Buildings like Casa Mananitas and others would have truly ocean front rooms. Be sure to select your building with care. That said, the rooms, themselves were great. The grand suite was spacious and well appointed and maintained. The premier room had a great bathroom and storage, and was also well maintained. As with the landscaping, decoration and architecture paid homage to Mexican culture with hints of Arabic culture. My party did not use the spa, although it looked sumptuous and serene. They did use the fitness center, though, and found it to be large and well stocked. My sister took a complementary yoga class and thought it was challenging and great. My wife scheduled one personal training session and liked it so much, she scheduled several throughout the week. The instructor tailored her workout to challenge her and to push beyond what she thought was possible for her. We ate breakfast (and ordered pool food and drinks) from Breeze. We thought the food was well prepared and delicious. We ate at Seared, and enjoyed the food and appreciated the personal greeting from the General Manager. The Sommelier was very helpful and knowledgeable, and recommended a nice Mexican wine for us. We had late evening small bites and drinks at the Agua bar and found them very enjoyable. We ate at Suviche, and enjoyed the experience and the food. Beyond the basics, above, we were impressed by several touches that made us feel pampered and special. We were honored to be welcomed by Mr. Sorenson and several staff on arrival. There was also an assemblage of staff and management as we departed. In-room check-in was nice. We used our butlers a number of times and found them unfailingly available and helpful. We enjoyed the complimentary cold treats at the pool, as well as the complementary foot massages. We utilized the available resort transportation for every excursion off property and felt spoiled. Finally, the airport expediter came in handy on a very busy departure day (more on that below). We took a couple of excursions off property that were of note. We took a whale watching tour in a 46' power boat with Cabo Sailing (recommended by the resort). The boat was clean, well appointed, and served great snacks and drinks, we recommend this highly. We actually saw more whales sitting by the pool at the resort, but the opportunity to get much closer and see the spectacular Pacific coast was great. We also ate at a restaurant called Sunset Mona Lisa. Great food and beautiful views. Get one of the premier tables, and reserve on their website well before you arrive to get a selection of days and time. Availability was almost gone when we reserved a week before we left. We thought that the service was topnotch without any exceptions. I only wish we could have remembered the names of all of the staff that we interacted with during our stay. The staff is always the beating heart of any resort. They can add value or subtract it. The folks at O&O Palmilla definitely add value. Believe me, you feel and SEE that they provide service "from the heart". We must personally acknowledge some of the staff that we interacted with. Our butlers Pedro and Oswaldo were great and always readily available. At the fitness center, my wife used Miguel, several times, as well as Francisco. They were both great. My sister enjoyed her yoga instructor, a small, lithe athlete whose name we sadly didn't catch. At Breezes, we enjoyed Sergio and Ana Laura as well as the manager of the area "Angie" who went over and above to get us some mementos of our stay. At the adult pool, we were ably sunned, shaded and served by Raul, Elias and Jose. Finally, our drivers were all consummate professionals. We used Fernando, Norberto and Javier. We particularly enjoyed Norberto's good humor on our excursion to The Office. We all had a great laugh together. Javier went above and beyond when after delivering us to the airport, he looked into the back seat of his car to find my sister's phone. He called the airport expediter who had us in the check-in line at the time. The expediter ran back to the entry door to get the phone from Javier, who had returned to the location. Sadly, I should have remembered the expediter's name. He and Javier were great. There were so many more folks we should have remembered personally. Next visit we will do better. They all combined to make us feel so special. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Not quite as good as it was the last time.

Mar 21st, 2020

Grounds are beautiful, everyone was nice service wasn’t quite the same. Last time we were made to feel special, this time it was just very good, vs excellent. Which is something I would expect at 1300.00 a night TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

One and Only Resort you’ll ever need

Mar 16th, 2020

This is the best, friendliest, and most beautiful resort I’ve ever stayed at in my entire life. There’s really nothing else to say. If you’re going to Cabo there just simply isn’t any other option other than this one. Couples, families, single, it’s a place for everyone and you’ll feel as if you just came home to a warm and loving family. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

One & Only is the only Choice in Cabo

Mar 10th, 2020

From the moment you step off the plane until the moment you board the plane the people of One & Only Palmilla make you feel like family. The kindness, the cleanliness, the comfort of the room. Everything was top notch. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
