Jay-Z, Chelsea Handler, and Peyton Manning have all descended upon this cushy cliff-top kingdom, so it’s no surprise that superior service—long a hallmark of the California-based Auberge group, which starts with gratis shoulder massages at check-in—plays a starring role. The secluded setting tucked between two atmospheric bluffs only adds to the exclusivity factor, and there are plenty of private pockets to choose from to lounge your stay away, including cabanas on Cabo San Luca’s only private beach, the hammocks and balcony-set Jacuzzis in your seashell-hued casita, or one of the steam caves at the showstopper of a spa. The resort’s close proximity to Punta Ballena means you’re in prime whale-watching territory, helped by the Nikon binoculars deposited in every room (in the winter months, you’ll spy humpbacks). The six on-site eateries, which range from a swim-up cantina, a ceviche bar, and an Argentinian-inspired seafood restaurant with delicious ocean views, are all top-notch. Though it’s equally tempting to reach for your in-room tablet and swiftly summon a squash blossom frittata from the comfort of your airy verandah.
In the Area
The property is a 30-minute drive from the San Jose Del Cabo International Airport—for a surcharge, the resort can arrange for shuttle service for up to six guests. While the hotel’s private, albeit rocky, beach doesn’t disappoint, you’re also within easy reach of Playa Monumento, a hotspot for the surf set, and the Cabo del Sol Gulf Club, comprising a quartet of championship courses. And though you’re just four miles from the nightlife of Cabo San Lucas, cab rides can be exorbitant—opt for beachside tequila tastings, sunset cocktails at the lounge bar, or in-room margarita delivery at the resort instead.
How to Get There
Esperanza was by far the best resort we've ever been to, and we've been to a lot of high end resorts. The service was incredible, the food was incredible, and the amenities were unparalleled. My wife and I had the best experience here. Ask for Fredy at the pool! He's the absolute best!
Amazing views, great restaurants and outstanding pools with attentive cabana service. We were in an Inspirato home with guest privileges to the resort, and enjoyed our time! The restaurants have spectacular views, fresh Pacific seafood, and wonderful ambiance!
Excellent vibe and Attention. Warm attention upon arrival and when leaving would highly recommend staying. Jesus was the Best at La Palapa highly recommend visiting. The views are Beautiful the staff is very friendly.
The staff and hotel were wonderful. The service was impeccable. We enjoyed two dinners on property and many fantastic cocktails. Every employee made an effort to say hi, make eye contact and ensure our needs were being met. The detail of service included what scent to use on the linens for sleeping, water bottles available always , ice buckets left full, turn down service, blankets for dining when it got chilly, and complimentary tequila poolside.
Monserrat was our concierge. She was kind and responsive to any request. She was informative and well organized. I was concerned our ride back to the airport might not be early enough. She reassured me and perfectly timed our return. Her planning was thoughtful and accurate. Thank you everyone at Esperanza. I hope to be back soon.
My wife and I had an amazing time at Esperanza. The facilities, service and food were first class. Special thanks to Judith, Marcello, Leon, Alberto and Rigoberto for making sure we had memorable experience. We will be back.
