Beautiful grounds. Staff very nice.

If you're looking for world class 5 star, Palmilla doesn't quite measure up. If you expect 5 star on Mexico standards, then it does.
The grounds are amazing. Views are incredible. Food in restaurants is good. Agua bar is fantastic! Drinks are good, but pricey, but it's Palmilla after all. Rooms could use freshening up. Typical tile floors you'll find throughout Mexico. TV is terrible, but do you go to Cabo to stay in your room and watch TV? No, probably not. Room service food was just ok.
Location is just ok if you want to go into Cabo San Lucas. It's about a 30 minute ride each way. Crowd is older (it's Palmilla!) and a bit snooty. The people I came across all seemed to have an entitlement attitude.
Is it worth $1,000 + per night? Maybe. If you're looking to relax, have some good drinks and food, enjoy beautiful grounds and views, then yes. If you're looking for a younger party and fun crowd, then no. If you're looking for the latter and want to go to Cabo, I'd recommend something around the harbor and closer to Medano beach.
