Las Palomas Resort and Golf Club
A Seaside Golf Community of Rocky Point
Las Palomas resort is located in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico – Rocky Point – along the Sea of Cortez on Sandy Beach. It is the first resort in Rocky Point to be awarded 4 diamonds by the American Automobile Association. This resort is our home away from home. Stephanie and I purchased our two bedroom, two bath 1400 sq foot condominium in 2007. A friend of ours has a place there and recommend that we give it a try. I was quite unaware of what to expect. When we first entered the lobby of phase one to check-in we were greeted by a spectacular view of the Las Palomas grounds and the Sea of Cortez in the distance.
Mexico is Kid Friendly
Among the many reason we bought at Las Palomas was that the resort is very kid friendly. If you have kids they will love the kids pool, water slide, and lazy river. The resort also offers a kid care center for those times when the adults need a break. The day care service is free, but you will want to tip the worker an appropriate wage. Also, at scheduled times during the day, the resort offers activities for such as painting, beach soccer, and bingo for the kids.
The resort is a 350 acre master planned golf community that offers the area’s only par 72, 18 hole championship semi-private golf course which was designed by Forrest Richardson and Associates. The first and second phase of the resort have been delivered to owners, with the third phase scheduled for completion in 3-5 years. Eventually the master plan calls for town homes and custom homes to be built along the golf course. With the collapse of the real estate market however, those plans have been put on hold.
All of the condominiums at the Las Palomas Resort are individually owned. Prices for new construction range from $340,000 up to $1.9 million (US). Resale units can be purchased from the Las Palomas resale office or other AMPI licensed agents in Puerto Peñasco starting at around $150,000. Prices have drop significantly in the last 9 month, offering cash buyers an opportunity to purchase beach front property at prices not seen since the resort began construction.
Condominiums are available for rental through the Las Palomas rental management company Operdora. The condos are owned by individuals that enroll their units in the rental pool. Available are one- to five-bedroom furnished units ranging from 1,063 to 6,753 square feet, each with a private ocean view terrace.

If owners use their condominium frequently you can elect to keep your unit out of the rental pool. General maintenance issues, maintenance of the air conditioning units and requests for maid service are available to homeowners not in the rental pool for additional fees.
