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
Picturesque views, the sound of waves, fabulous food and drinks. Friendliest staff on the planet. They made me and my husbands 15th anniversary so special wonderful memories to last our lifetime. Thank you Monsterit, Jesus, and everyone at La Palapa and Cocina Del Mar.
My wife and I chose the Esperanza for our 25th anniversary. We are well traveled, and everything about our experience was as good as it gets. Our room was beautiful, with a great view, and had a special welcome gift(s). Also plenty of water, fruit, and treats. Our dining experience (restaurant, pool, room, et.al.) was top notch—excellent food, service and the views are simply incredible. The grounds are so stunning; right down to every detail across the whole property and beach—all 3-pools were clean, warm, and the staff made sure we had everything we needed—note: you must other the mezcal watermelon drink, your welcome.
The fitness center was perfect—well equipped and clean, and with wonderful fresh natural flavored cold water. The spa is gorgeous, and so chill/zen with great amenities.
Perhaps most impressive and importantly, every staff member was super kind, helpful, warm and happy. This really helps to make you feel a at home and special.
Thank you, Esperanza—we will see you same time next year!!!
The absolute best place to stay in Cabo! The property is gorgeous. The service is impeccable. The views are comparable to none.Every amenity is present and tier one. The restaurants serve extremely good food with waitstaff that is very accommodating . A stay here will not be disappointing
