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
The Esperanza Resort was Beyond the stars in ranking property, amenities and service. We stayed in a 4 bedroom Villa which exceeded our expectations. Jorge our concierge/ butler/ new friend provided impeccable service around the clock. He anticipated our needs and responded to all of our request. The chef prepared breakfast was just one of the many highlights. Raphael and Gorge made it a morning to remember.
Daniel by the pool always had a towel and a smile. Truly our only regret was that we didn't stay longer. Yet we are always discussing plans to return. Thanks Esperanza for making our birthday magical!!
We cannot imagine a more extraordinary experience of relaxation, peacefulness, staff kindness and patience, and quality of service, food and facilities than Esperanza. Wonderful dining, amazing facilities and awe inspiring resort features, and support service from the team are somewhat rare in the world today. However by way of world leadership, the angelic staff uniquely dedicated themselves through kindness, care and joyfulness to our happiness, which was life altering. Thank you Esperanza!
This resort is fantastic. Would highly recommend it to anyone. The best rooms I have ever stayed in on any resort. The staff is incredibly friendly and welcoming. The pools are great. Feels like your own private resort, and does not feel crowded.
