Designed by hospitality specialists Glazier Le Architects and interiors firm BAMO, this tasteful property by Auberge Resorts features expansive spaces framing unobstructed views of the Sea of Cortez. Contemporary wood furniture and plenty of linen and cotton in natural hues set a relaxing atmosphere, while pops of vibrant color add dashes of Mexican flavor. All 60 guest rooms and 32 villas (with two, three, and four bedrooms) feature private terraces with ocean, pool or garden views, as well as spacious bathrooms with deep freestanding bathtubs and private outdoor showers. Villas also have plunge pools. Aside from deep-blue tranquil waters teeming with pristine reefs, the piece de resistance at this resort and spa is its main restaurant, COMAL, a stunning space conceived by Los Angeles firm Gulla Jonsdottir Architecture + Design. Intricate Moorish-style wood paneling, geometric chairs, sculptural lighting and sweeping views are the backdrop to creative fusion flavors by chef Yvan Mucharraz, an alum of The French Laundry. Contemporary Mexican cuisine with influences from Peru, Brazil, and other Latin American countries includes notable dishes such as braised short rib with cacao broth and crispy octopus with hazelnut mole.
In the Area
Cabo San Lucas was made famous by the scads of celebrities who’ve been spotted in this Baja California playground over the years. While many visitors come here to kick back at the spa and drink cocktails by the pool (which is often just what the doctor ordered), there are also plenty of sights and activities for active travelers. Chileno Bay Resort & Residences is perched on one of the only swimmable beaches in Los Cabos, also a great spot for snorkeling, paddleboarding and kayaking. Nearby, on the area’s southernmost tip, is the picturesque Lovers Beach, a secluded stretch of sand facing a series of dramatic rock formations known as Land’s End. If you’ve had your share of surf and sun, head to downtown Cabo to browse traditional crafts and savor authentic Mexican eats at places like Los Tres Gallos, a scenic open-air restaurant.
How to Get There
We had the trip of a lifetime at the Chileno Bay Resort. The service is the best we have ever experienced at a property. The property is modern, incredibly beautiful and impeccably clean. All of the staff took such great care of us all, including our three young children. The Beach at the property offers incredible snorkeling, the best in Cabo. The pools and lounge chairs make for incredible relaxing space, where you can sit back, have a drink, and watch your kids of all ages (they have very shallow pool for early swimmers). All three pools are linked so everyone is happy (kids pool, family pool, adult pool). The food both pool side and at the restaurants are delicious and offer a wonderful variety of options. The daily breakfast is amazing! There is a kid space, teen space, and work out facility (including daily classes). To top off our amazing experience, we had family pictures done onsite by Studio Em photography, which put together a video/pics of our family to music. Stephanie our photographer was really great with the kids and our entire family, and it was the perfect way to end our time. We can't wait to come back!
From the minute we checked in to Chileno Bay we knew our stay was going to be special. Marcos and Dulce from the resort had contacted me prior to our visit to find out if there was anything they could do to make the trip extra special. One of the options they offered was to have a photo and song montage playing on the room TV upon our arrival. So when we walked into the room the first thing my new wife and I saw were pictures of our wedding with our song playing in the background. It was really moving. From that point on, things only got better. The facilities are amazing. The food is top notch. The casual dining by the pool is fantastic and the breakfast and dinner options at Comal are the stuff of a foodie's dreams. And the drinks... just be careful, because you'll definitely want to drink more than you should. Should you want to venture out of the resort, Joel and Angel in concierge are the best in the biz. They recommended amazing venues and set us up with transportation as well. Warning: The service at Chileno Bay WILL ruin you for all other hotel and resort experiences. The staff basically felt like family by the end of our trip. Enrique and Adrian were especially wonderful and never let us go a second without food or drinks. And even though the resort and the weather were amazing, they were the toughest part of our trip to say goodbye to. We can't recommend coming to Chilen Bay enough. For something like a honeymoon, the expectations are high. But Chileno Bay blew them out of the water. The only hard part about writing this review is that we don't really want other people to know how great the resort is as we'd prefer to not have to share it the next time we go. Which we hope is very soon. Can't wait to go back and if Tripadvisor offered a sixth star, Chileno Bay would have that too!
My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary at Chileno, by happy coincidence I found the resort via facebook ad.Before we had arrived Dulce our concierge sent us day excursions, spa menu and dinning options so we could pre plan out trip and take any stress away. Upon arrival we were greeted with wonderful beers and a specialty cocktail to enjoy the view of the ocean from our 5 star room. An out door shower, indoor shower, bath and two lounge areas. We settled into the resort quickly with wonderful pool staff having menus and water delivered to us pool side. The floating bar was incredible! Everything at Chileno is in the details from the landscaping and furniture to the staff remembering how you like your eggs. The attention to the guest happiness is what makes this resort 11/10. The private beach access is also a highlight, snorkeling, paddle boarding and kayaking right at your finger tips. We can't wait to go back!
We celebrated our 10 year anniversary at the hotel and they made us feel very special. The staff is wonderful and everyone is genuinely friendly. The food at Comal and TnT is superb. We went into town for a meal and regretted not staying at the hotel instead. If you want to just take some time and relax this is this a place to go. If you want to be more active there are lots of options as well. Best of both worlds. Don't miss the breakfast quesadillas at Comal!!!
This was perhaps the nicest resort we have stayed at anywhere in the world. Had a three bedroom villa with our own private pool. The villa was simple remarkable. Every accommodation was made in the villa, including an outdoor shower. The property is itself is incredible. The staff was amazing. The very large and long pool was terrific. The restaurants were top notch. The beach is great by Cabo standards, even good snorkeling off the beach. I cannot think of one single derogatory comment. The worse thing I can say is that they are adding on and I wonder how crowded the pools will be once the new section is open. The Spa was average. That is the worst I can come up with. Even the workout facilities were great. I am not your typical TripAdvisor reviewer in that I do not hand out 5 stars and the reason is simple - You need to be able to reserve your five star reviews for truly amazing experiences. This place deserves a six.
