A peaceful oceanfront escape at a relaxing Pacific Coast luxury hotel in Baja, staying in a sea-view suite
Get beachy in Baja at Sol Pacifico Cerritos Hotel. Set on a picturesque stretch of seashore, this contemporary, five-star Pescadero stay boasts soft sands and highly surfable waves. To help you appreciate the setting even better, there’s a restaurant that invites you to sample cuisine of the region – not only Mexican specialties, but any seafood you catch yourself during fishing excursions through local suppliers, which Chef Tony is happy to cook for dinner. The infinity-pool deck, which is one of the largest solar-heated pools around, is another great spot to admire the ocean, perhaps while lounging on a padded Adirondack chair or splashing around with a rubber duck.
You’ll discover an assortment of land activities while based at this elegant TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, as well: Horseback riding and ATV rides are other local outings you can arrange, while the hotel’s own facilities include a fitness center and courts for billiards, basketball and tennis. Your address puts you near the hiking-friendly Sierra de la Laguna foothills; a bar that hosts weekly live music; and Todos Santos artists village, full of intriguing galleries. That said, it’s worth heading beachward at least in the evening, however you spend your days. This is when you can view an epic Pacific sunset, from one of the common areas, or from your very own balcony-equipped suite.
Each sea-view, condo-style suite is decorated in a simple, elegant, contemporary fashion, as well as beautifully appointed. Enjoy a gourmet kitchen, a light-filled master bathroom with a spa tub, a spacious living room and a furnished private balcony. Spanish-themed One Bedroom suites are marble floored, with granite countertops. Larger Two Bedroom suites accommodate up to four and have oceanfront locations; a full refrigerator in their kitchens; bar stools at the kitchen counters; dining-room tables; flat-screen TVs in the master bedrooms; and generous closet space in the bathrooms. Each second bedroom features a sitting nook with outdoor access.
Savor both Mexican and Western specialties at the hotel, whose dining program is helmed by seasoned Chef Antonio Jesus Salgado Nunez, also known as Chef Tony. Let him cook up a fish that you caught yourself, or a fresh pizza, burger or plate of wings, and wash it down with a fruity cocktail. A convenient deli sells baked goods, like loaves of bread and sweets.
Forty miles north of Cabo San Lucas, Pescadero is a charming, quiet Baja fishing village. The local beach club offers you the chance to kayak upon the Pacific, ride an ATV along the coast, surf, go fishing yourself, or listen to live music at its bar, and the minutes-away artists retreat of Todos Santos offers a host of galleries to visit and film festivals to attend throughout the year. Sol Pacifico Cerritos houses courts for tennis, basketball and billiards and boasts one of the region’s largest solar-heated pools – along with poolside tiki huts, Adirondack chairs, a water-volleyball net and plenty of rubber ducks.
