Rocking one of the most stunning locations in Cabo San Lucas, this Baja beauty is set against a backdrop of dramatic rock cliffs that make up the famous Land’s End. Freeform heated pools face the golden sands of a perfect beach just steps from the resort. All of the breezy rooms and suites — outfitted in warm Mexican tones with luxe details like stainless steel appliances and marble counters — feature views of the Pacific Ocean. Guests can further appreciate the ocean vistas in one of the Sea Spa cabanas, where massages are performed to the soothing soundtrack of waves breaking on the shore. Not surprisingly, given the location, the menus at the hotel’s many restaurants favor locally caught seafood, like Pacific lobster. There’s even a sushi bar at the health-focused Brisas Snack Bar. Additional amenities include a full-service kids club, as well as such adult activities as sport fishing (the chef will even grill up your catch for dinner). The award-winning Land’s End Spa, meanwhile, offers indulgent treats like a synchronized four-hand massage followed by an oxygen facial and body wrap.
In the Area
If you’re a first-timer to Cabo you’ll want to see El Arco, the famous rock formation that rises out of the ocean at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula. Take one of the many simple pangas (small wooden boats) or book a two-hour tour with a company like Roger’s, which offers glass-bottom boat tours around El Arco along with a chance to visit and hang out with the local sea lion colony. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, hit Cabo’s downtown and Mi Casa, a landmark featuring bright colors, jaunty decor and some of the best chiles en nogada (a traditional dish of stuffed poblano peppers with a creamy sauce and pomegranate seeds) around. Head to one of the area’s most famed surf beaches, Zippers, to test yourself against a wicked break or just marvel at the expert surfers working their magic.
How to Get There
I’m typing this review sitting ocean side by the Adult only infinity pool sipping a pina colada, and I have to say, this is one of the best vacations I’ve been on in my life. Having been to Cabo a few other times I have to say this resort far exceeded my expectations.
First, the rooms are gorgeous. I don’t imagine there is a bad view here at the property. Of course, the higher the better. Our room is in building 6 on the seventh floor and our ocean view is fabulous. The beds are comfortable and the rooms feel luxurious and the bed is comfortable. We appreciate having a coffee maker and refrigerator. Pro tip: pack coffee and filters.
My husband and I are in our mid 30’s celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. The property is very romantic. If you’re in your 20’s looking for a party hotel, this isn’t it. The resort however does have several bars and swim up bars. I would say this hotel is ideal for couples or families although there is not a ton of entertainment for young kids, I’d come back and bring my 7 year old and I know he’d have a blast.
As I’ve said before, we’ve been to Cabo. At other resorts we’ve had security issues, and have had issues with theft, but that is NOT the case here. The staff here is Phenomenal!!! Every single person I’ve encountered in my week here has been warm, friendly and helpful. The staff here works around the clock keeping this property immaculate and it really shows. I’ve not seen a single piece of trash or a thing out of place. The staff truly sets this place apart, and they should be proud.
I had a massage the second day of my trip and it was just what I needed, highly recommend the spa services.
We did the all inclusive three nights that we were here, and honestly I would have been happy to do the all inclusive every day I was here. The food was great. We liked both Don Luis and La Roca, but the pool service was the best!
Other than a cooking class at Flora Farms (highly recommend visiting there! Amazing) we didn’t feel the need to leave the resort. I’d come back in a heart beat and we are seriously considering a timeshare. Don’t hesitate to book :)
My dad's friend gave my family and I his timeshare last year to this resort and we went during my spring break. We had such a fabulous time. The service was wonderful everywhere we went, they were really good about warning everybody about not swimming in the ocean, and the infinity pools were very beautiful. They also recommended good places to eat and all of those places had delicious food. Overall, my family and I had a wonderful and relaxing vacation and most of it was because of the Grand Solmar!
My family and I had a super fun time at the Grand Solmar Land's End. It was the vacation to remember for a long time. We will definitely go back there again next year. We spent a lot of time at the pool, and ordered food by the pool side. Service there was excellent. The Cabana Manager arranged for ours several times and he was wonderful. Very attentive and very helpful. Thank you Grand Solmar.
