We go to Cabo a lot, usually 6 times a year, and I was excited to try this hotel. It was an experience that I wish I hadn't had. My advice is stay at Las Ventanas, Chileno Bay Resort or Ritz Carlton. There was a lot of friction, everything was uneasy. Here are some examples. Before we arrived we sent emails about restaurant reservations and getting a covid test.. never received any replies. When we checked into the room, there was old food in the fridge. The air-conditioning was so loud we had to sleep with it turned off. The property knows this is an issue but tries to pass it off as being normal. Since the hotel was at full capacity, we were only moved for our last night. The staff are nice but seem poorly trained and there a lack communication which results in very average service for a supposed 5 star resort. The one positive is that the food is great.

Level of service dropped significantly since our last visit in January 2020. Problems weren't solved. Staff paid lip service to our complaints and requests. Phone calls to concierge and butlers went unanswered.

Had a fabulous time at the Palmilla. The rooms are incredible and the staff is wonderful. We had breakfast every morning at Azul and it was terrific. We had one dinner at Seared and it was also great. Only thing lacking was no waitstaff service by the pool or firepit area after 8pm so you have to hike up to the Seared bar to get a drink. Also the reservation system for keeping poolside lounge chairs is not optimal.

The resort was absolutely gorgeous and the views are unbelievable. The staff was the friendliest, most accommodating group! Every detail is top notch. Do not hesitate to book a vacation here. You will NOT regret it.

My wife and I have had an incredible time at the One&Only. We celebrated a delayed honeymoon and birthday here, and the staff went above and beyond to make sure it was a special week. We loved just about everything from the room, the service, the food, and the facilities. I can't say enough about the level of service provided by the One&Only staff, especially our butler Javier and Sofia Bravo, the Guest Relations Manager. Also, a big special shout out to the entire staff at the Vista pool and bar. Everyone we interacted with there was exceptional, kind, and attentive. During the day we swam on one of the only swimmable beaches in the area, ate dozens of fish tacos, and drank amazing margaritas while lounging at the Vista pool. In the evenings we enjoyed dinner at Seared, as well as an amazing dinner and view at Agua. This was our first time at the resort, and to be candid, our expectations were high due to the price point. Not only were our expectations met, but exceeded. There we're still COVID precautions in place as expected, and if it can get better from here, we can't wait to experience it. We will miss just about everything about the One&Only, and we're looking forward to visiting again...and next time we'll bring our friends! We truly felt that we had a special stay in a special space.

Room Tip: We didn't splurge for a suite or plunge pool this time, but still really enjoyed the room.
