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
My wife and I stayed at the Grand Solmar Land''s End Resort the last week in November. The personal service, as usual, was beyond compare. After a relaxing massage, we grabbed lunch at the pool while watching the whales. What a great experience. We want to give a big thank you to Fransisco Triano, Veronica Gomez, Manny, Roberto, Fernando, Saul, Joel, Eben, Bel, Jennifer, Yolanda, Adan, Freddy, Sergio, Claudia, and everyone else for making our visits so enjoyable. I cannot say enough good things about the Grand Solmar Land's End staff. We are already looking forward to our next visit in March.
From the second getting out of the taxi, Manny was there with a smile and a warm welcome - he's simply the best. My wife and I spent our 1-year anniversary at Grand Solmar from Dec. 1 - Dec. 8, 2018 and we couldn't have had a more enjoyable time. We dined almost every night at the various restaurants on-site including LaRocha, Sports Bar (Oscar is awesome) and the Sushi Bar (Miguel is awesome as well). Our room was terrific and the staff was friendly. We opted to go with the all-inclusive wristbands which certainly paid for themselves with food and beverages. One downer with those, is that we still had to sign everything even though gratuity was already included. It would be our opinion that simply giving your room number would suffice. Other than that, we had a great stay, met some new friends and are looking forward to coming back!
Why would someone who does not like seafood go to a sushi bar? I will tell you why. The Sushi Bar at Grand Solmar has the best captain. Miguel encouraged us to try his restaurant and guaranteed he would find us something we would like. True to his word we had pizza and since I had craving for French toast he convinced me that he could make that work. And make it work he did with a big smile to go with it. Great staff and a beautiful location. Gracias Miguel for a wonderful meal.
The rooms are always meticulously kept by the staff, the staff are universally friendly and helpful. We go back every year, our one time to kick back and look forward to seeing the staff there who give the Grand solmar personality and maintain the excellence there. Especially worth mentioning are Manny who heads the bell hops, Roberto & Fernando who are excellent and see to every detail. Arturo and Xavier at the reception desk were tremendous and the waiters, Sergio at Sports Bar and Carlos at Sunset pool are fantastic. Look for them although all the staff are great. We safely walk to town all the time.
We visited Dec 1-8, 2018. From the moment we booked the trip until the moment we boarded the flight home it was absolutely delightful. The resort kept in touch with options for pre-arranging transportation to and from the airport and resort, information about meal and beverage packages, and was available for any questions we had. It was a five star experience, and our concierge, Humberto, was absolutely amazing!!!! The staff is extremely friendly, clean cut, and professional. The rooms are identical (there were 12 of us on this trip so we were able to check one another's rooms) and each with a stunning ocean view. We are positive that our stay at Grand Solmar is what made our first visit to Cabo one of the best vacations ever.
