In Palmilla, a residential area located a 10-minute drive from San Jose del Cabo
One&Only is located on the tip of Palmilla, a residential area known mainly for its golf courses -- which is the area's only attraction. There’s nothing within walking distance but the beach, but San Jose del Cabo is a short drive from the hotel.
Far from the party-hearty area of Cabos San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo is the more quaint, historic answer to a beach vacation in Los Cabos. The waters are rough and there is less of a nightlife, but the area retains its Mexican flair and features numerous restaurants and galleries.
The One&Only Palmilla is easily one of the most luxurious resorts not only in Cabo, but in Mexico. Every single feature here has an upscale touch to it, from the exclusive spa, to the wonderful cuisine, to the beautiful pools -- and certainly the rooms are nothing less than lavish, with contemporary and traditional Mexican accents, and high-tech amenities (like flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi). The included extras -- such as luggage unpacking, daily fruit and cocktail snacks delivered to rooms, an aromatherapy turndown menu, and 24-hour shared butler service -- set this property far apart from the competition. Just be prepared to shell out the green -- all of this comes for an exorbitant price.
