I'm not sure if I would stay in Melaque again but, if I did, I would return here. La Paloma Oceanfront Retreat is at a great location, right on the beach and walking distance to restaurants and shops. Our room was artsy, colorful, nice and clean. Our room was adjacent to the swimming pool, which was beautiful. It's not huge,... More

Our room boosted a huge patio overlooking the pool and ocean. The gardens are zen like and every suite is special in some way. Staff are so accommodating... More

We were so delighted with this hidden gem in Melanque. Our room was wonderful; each room is unique as the entire retreat. The staff went out of their way to accomodate our every need. The view and beach are spectacular. Breakfast and Lunch served poolside were the best!! Highly recommend this experience!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the picturesque seaside town of Melaque, the beauty and serenity of old Mexico lives on. Here at La Paloma, an intimate resort, culture and traditional hospitality combine with modern technology and the singular artistic vision of its owners. Conveniently located a couple of blocks from the town square and shopping, yet when you step through the gate, you're miles away from the world outside in a safe, secure, garden paradise. Each of the 14 different rooms have their own uniqueness with wonderful views and amenities designed for your comfort. We are not your average hotel... We are your Home away from Home. ... more   less
