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
We stay at Esperanza four times a year. This resort is absolutely heavenly. The staff is very attentive and go absolutely above and beyond to make each guest feel special. The resort is gated and when you arrive are greeted with margaritas and escorted to your villa. The villas are very well appointed and meticulously manicured. The views from the pool and the restaurants are spectacular. We love to get up before sunrise to have coffee and watch the waves and the sunrise on one of the many peninsulas that jut out into the ocean. Makes for quite a a nice morning! The fitness amenities are also top notch. Each morning there are a variety of group classes as well as a full gym with amazing flavored water :)
Mexico is such a beautiful country and being in a luxurious gated community like Esperanza makes it even better! Love the exercise classes and spa! Love the restaurants! And the property is gorgeous. The villas or private homes are highly recommended! I've been many times!
The hotel was immaculate and the staff was very friendly. The breakfast buffet was really good but the rest of the meals were average. The pools were beautiful but you couldn't get away from the ambient music that gave my daughter a migraine. Overall, Cabo is not worth the ridiculous cost and the Esperanza holds true to that dynamic.
The Esperanza is a quality resort with an excellent staff, food and amenities! Great restaurants and very close but far enough away (crowds) to enjoy downtown Cabo and those great restaurants. Our room was very nice with very attentive housekeeping.
Highly Recomend This Resort Without Hesitation . Excellent service, food, accommodations and overall surroundings! We loved everything about our stay. Thank you to everyone at Esperanza for making our March Break one to remember.
