We have been going to La Paloma for 10 years now and it never disappoints. 15 beautifully appointed suites with cooking facilities... Some bigger or better views than others but all clean and comfortable. Very quiet, mostly for older couples or singles who want peace and walks on the beach, not a party place although there are many good places...

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
