While my family and I love the Christmas lights and snowy lawns of a Nashville
Christmas, we’re also extremely blessed and fortunate enough to travel abroad
for blue skies and white-sand beaches. This Christmas, we enjoyed our holidays
at the beautiful One & Only Palmilla in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. If you haven’t
been, you’ll be moving it to the top of your list after reading my experience.
The resort is located on a secluded bluff overlooking the Sea of Cortez and
outside the hustle of downtown Cabo, Palmilla. It has been known as a
glamorous destination for the wealthiest families and celebrities alike.
Upon first arrival, if the views don’t blow you away, the service from each and
every staffer will. Every employee of the One & Only is kind, attentive, and there
to make your experience easy and enjoyable. And they do! My entire family,
three young boys included, felt like royalty. More importantly, it showed us how
much they cared about our stay with them over our long holiday break.
Now about those views . . . blue oceans, blue skies, and even bluer pools. This
place has it all. The palm trees sway softly in the breeze and from my swinging
hammock with my wife, we can watch the boys play in the water.
The resort was originally built in 1956, but has been extensively upgraded.
Private villas offer the utmost luxury, positioned on a hilltop and overlooking the
resort and coastline. If you’re looking for modern luxury or traditional Spanish
accommodations, the resort has it all. Floor to ceiling windows open out to
terraces, swing beds, and private pools.
Now that I’ve painted a picture for you, let’s talk food. The food at all of the
restaurants on property are five-star! From steak to truffle mac and cheese to
Mexican wines, they’ve got you covered. We did not leave a meal anything less
than stuffed and happy.
Aside from food and wine, they offer anything you could dream of: fishing
excursions, cooking and mixology classes, top notch barber and spa
experiences, and so much more! If you’re looking for a getaway that will make
the whole family feel like they’re living a blessed life, this is it!
