Photos and Review by



  • Ultra-luxurious property right on the beach and a 10-minute drive from San Jose del Cabo
  • Two beautiful pools, one with an infinity-edge, a waterfall, and a swim-up bar
  • Large, sun-drenched rooms have gorgeous balconies with ocean views
  • Wonderful restaurants on-site supervised by a Michelin-starred chef
  • Top-notch spa with oceanside treatment rooms, and yoga and Pilates classes
  • Five tennis courts lit for night play
  • Great kids' club with free activities and gifts
  • Exclusive yacht available for excursions and entertaining


  • Pricey dining options on-site
  • Not the best beach in the area, with strong undertow
  • Nothing within walking distance

Bottom Line

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.

In Palmilla, a residential area located a 10-minute drive from San Jose del Cabo

Map of One&Only Palmilla

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.

  • 20-minute drive to Los Cabos International Airport
  • 10-minute drive to downtown San Jose del Cabo
  • 25-minute drive to Medano Beach, a popular beach
  • 30-minute drive to Cabo San Lucas
  • 2-hour drive to Cabo Pulmo National Park
