Landmark Baja Hotel Shut for Renovation

July 28, 1996

The Hotel Palmilla, which in 1956 was the first hotel built in the Los Cabos area of Baja California, has closed for four months of renovation.

The 71-room Palmilla, located between the towns of San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, will reopen in mid-October. Guests will find a new health club and phones in each room, plus improvements to the restaurant, bar, lobby and grounds, and dramatic changes to the pool and plaza area.

A second renovation phase, raising the total number of rooms to 114, is expected to continue until mid-November. Joe Woodard, president of Newport Beach's Koll International, which bought the landmark hotel in 1984 and added a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, estimates the remodeling will cost more than $10 million.

Rates will be $225-$525. Information/reservations: (714) 833-3033, fax (714) 851-2498.
