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
The resort itself is gorgeous and impeccably maintained. The rooms were bright,clean and very roomy. All the staff were friendly and accommodating.The contrast of the landscape of rocks, desert, and ocean was stunning to wake up to every morning. It was an amazing first trip to Mexico. If I had to say one negative, it would only be how pricey everything was and I’m a New Yorker. All in all it was a wonderful time and I would definitely return.
Excellent staff and hands on personal attention from the reservation, to email correspondence, the concierge, the desk staff, the bellmen, the waiters the entire facility and everyone and everything associated with the resort. Every request was met or exceeded with just the simple request or without asking at all!
We stayed in Building I and the view of the ocean is exactly what we wanted. The management and staff are incredibly courteous and friendly. Special shout out to Manny, Joel, Adolfo, Carlos and Graciela! This was our 5th time to stay here and will not be the last.
