Thank you for your continued support of One&Only. Our absolute priority is the health, safety and well-being of our guests and colleagues. Based on the ever-evolving COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation, we are following the protocols from the world’s leading health experts, including the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and have decided to temporarily close One&Only Palmilla as of 1 April. We do not have a date confirmed for a new opening at this time but as you know, One&Only has been committed to Mexico, Los Cabos and the Palmilla community for decades.

Given the current uncertain environment, we have updated our cancellation policy to give you the upmost flexibility. One&Only is waiving all cancellation and change fees applicable to all existing and new bookings for stays up to 30 September 2020. We would be happy to rebook your reservation, or ultimately, cancel your reservation and refund any deposits received.
