Arrived here last Saturday and leave tomorrow Saturday. Gorgeous, manicured resort with a very tropical feel in the desert of Los Cabos. Guests are spoiled by the staff every single minute and attention to details is a high priority here. Beautiful Palmilla Suite with a balcony facing the Sea of Cortez and San Jose del Cabo. Two pools with quiet, peacefull adult pool and very attentive staff to provide umbrellas for shade, head snd foot pillows, sunscreen, buckets with ice and water all included in the first class hotel designed to pamper their guests to oblivion.

I very rarely write reviews however, I left in this case it was so necessary. My husband & I just returned from a 4 day trip to the One & Only Palmilla. Everything about this resort is perfect. We left our kids at home but saw lots of families here and we cannot wait to return with our boys. The hotel is beautiful it feels more like a home than a hotel. The grounds are breathtaking & most of all the staff. They are an absolute credit to the hotel. They will do everything they can to make the stay perfect. I would say this hotel is perfect for couples, families, generational trips. It really has everything to offer

For the past 9 years this has been, and continues to be, my favorite resort in the world. The service is truly incomparable, 6 stars. Though there may be resorts elsewhere with more modern design for the rooms and considered my luxurious, the special touches that Palmilla includes can't be beaten, ini my opinion! From the overall scent of the entire property to the incredible kindness and service of the staff, the delicious food, stunning views, unique ambience, and relaxing energy of the whole hotel, you will not regret staying here!!! They offer free foot massages by the pool (of course, always tip!), the spa is also beautiful with a highly trained staff, the fitness studio is awesome, and the rooms are just gorgeous. They use the most amazing smelling soaps and incense in the rooms. Even their gift shop always has beautiful, one of a kind pieces from designers that I only see there. It will always have the #1 spot in my heart in Cabo and I return there at least once a year for the most magical, relaxing time, each and every time.

We stayed for a week in July with our two daughters, ages 13 and 11. All the good reviews are spot on. What an incredible property.. you are literally surrounded by the sea at this resort. In our room we were above waves crashing on the rocks and at times saw dolphins and sting rays coming out of the water. Each room comes with binoculars to use. The service was 5-star all the way.. I don't know how the staff is incentivized to go so above and beyond but it is truly amazing how friendly they are, and how much they want to ensure your comfort, and that all needs are handled. We did the meal plan and were satisfied with the cost vs. value.. the food is excellent at all the restaurants. My wife and I liked Seared the most, then Suviche, then Agua in terms of the food.. but Agua has by far the best view so you can't lose. Just an incredible place and we would definitely like to go back!

Everything was wonderful. The staff there could not be more helpful. My daughter is gluten free and every restaurant there was amazing. They had bread for her at every meal. The concierge services were also very helpful in finding us restaurants offsite as well (but none where as good as the ones on property!) The pool and beach were both stunningly beautiful and the staff there was also very nice.

Thanks to the staff at the Palmilla, we had an unforgettable experience. Everyone went out of their way to make everything perfect. I want to specifically thank Laura, Emma W., Paula, Elizabeth L., Jacob, and the entire staff of Pelican Beach for going above and beyond for us. We could not be more impressed by them and have felt more welcomed and cared for. The spa experience was exceptional, too, mainly thanks to Anasia, our therapist (forgive me if I am butchering the spelling of her name). Esthetically, the property's lush greenery sets it apart from the other luxury resorts we have visited, and the food and drinks were excellent. Still, the staff impressed us the most. If I were to give an “insider tip,” I would recommend staying on the side of the property closest to Pelican Beach (their swimmable beach). It is less windy and lusher with beautiful tropical greenery than the other side of the property. It is also close to the Agua restaurant (excellent Mexican-centric food and drink) and the spa.

We had a wonderful experience at Villa Cortez. The staff treated us like family. We are already trying to book space for next year as our experience was so incredible. In addition to Carlos, Santiago, Javier & Victor the chefs and maids were wonderful and did a fantastic job for us.
