I think I told you all that I have been lusting after this resort since we got married and I was a tad worried my expectations were too high…but…. they were absolutely not! One & Only Palmilla is the best place we have been and they treat you like royalty.
This was our first time in Cabo and we loved it! It is a tad like Arizona with water….maybe. I loved the rocky shore line, the waves crashing and it wasn’t as humid as say Cancun or other parts of Mexico.
Our suite at The One and Only came with this amazing and large private patio that over looked the Sea of Cortez, we actually ordered in room private dining for breakfast each morning on our patio. Our suite also came with a Butler which was such a treat, I mean someone unpacking us and waiting on us all day was incredible. The One and Only thinks of everything.
One night we left the resort and went to have dinner at Flora’s Farms and I was literally giddy with excitement because it was like this place was made just for me! It is a working Farm and everything on the menu is from the farm. I even had a carrot margarita, it was so yummy and fresh. The farm also rescues dogs so a pack of dogs literally roams free and one of them came to visit us while we ate dinner! We were also told that Flora’s is where Adam Levine from Maroon 5 got married! If you are in Cabo you MUST GO! Check it out HERE
Matt asked me when we were leaving what my favorite part of the trip was and this picture below was it. I LOVED laying out by the infinity pool that over looked the Sea of Cortez, relaxing, reading, having margaritas and getting served a gourmet lunch to our pool chairs! This resort is a chef resort, so the level of food is incredible! We were obsessed with the guacamole and salsa! I mean this right here is the life.
Our butler was the best, he would meet us outside our room before we headed out to dinner to take a picture of us! Everywhere you turned there was something special on the resort grounds. Like behind this fountain is a book exchange in a awesome bird cage… so if you finish your beach book you are welcome to leave it for someone else and take another book. Also throughout the resort while you are walking around it smells divine, like at night like a bonfire….. so we asked and they hide incense sticks in the bushes so you get the smell all around the resort!
Every afternoon Matt and I would take a walk on the beach, it was a lovely routine. We were funny thought I swear we were always the first at dinner and first up, I guess we run on our own vacation time!
By the pool each morning they would bring out complimentary treats like mini smoothies, or popsicles in the afternoon. One day they did complimentary foot massages or sunglass cleaning.
Can you see the chapel on the hill? It was this stunning authentic chapel on the resort that people get married at and it overlooked the resort…. it gave it a true Mexican feel.
The One and Only has resorts in the Maldives, Dubai, Australia and so many other luxurious places I can only imagine how incredible those are. Maybe one day we will find out. I will say this, if you can go here one day ….. DO! It is worth every penny.
