The room had a kitchen area, separate bedroom and spacious sitting area. We then moved to #9 ocean view room which was smaller...

It is a shame that this beautiful place is ruined by the music that blasts from the bar next door. I love everything about it, except when I try to sleep I can't even read because the music is so loud. This is by no means the fault of the hotel. The grounds are beautiful and I love the room...

You want a break from crazy vacations you gotta check out La Paloma. The facilities are fantastic. Each room is unique and has its own appeal. The staff push it over the top; from Kyla the manager, Nancy the owner, to the night watchman. Everyone is great. You'll love the place. Pool, Wifi, and beach are all great. Very few...

We have stayed at la Paloma a few times the first time a dozen or so years ago and most recently for a couple of nights. This is a true "boutique " hotel - each room is unique and service is personalized. The place is always spotless, the service is top notch and the surroundings are unique. Many of the...

I'm not sure if I would stay in Melaque again but, if I did, I would return here. La Paloma Oceanfront Retreat is at a great location, right on the beach and walking distance to restaurants and shops. Our room was artsy, colorful, nice and clean. Our room was adjacent to the swimming pool, which was beautiful. It's not huge,...

We travelled from our month in PV to visit friends in Melaque. We wondered about this hotel when we arrived on the street and then the doors opened to a hidden oasis! Our room boosted a huge patio overlooking the pool and ocean. The gardens are zen like and every suite is special in some way. Staff are so accommodating...

We were so delighted with this hidden gem in Melanque. Our room was wonderful; each room is unique as the entire retreat. The staff went out of their way to accomodate our every need. The view and beach are spectacular. Breakfast and Lunch served poolside were the best!! Highly recommend this experience!

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
