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
We had the most relaxing time in Cabo, starting with the front Bellman staff. Manny and his team took care of everything during check-in. They kept our luggage until our rooms were available then delivered it to our rooms. 1st Class staff! Tim and Mary (Indianapolis).
The front deck was awesome. Manny and the bell staff are unbelievably great. They make the vacation ever better. The bar staff is great, they are very friendly and on the service. The staff makes is place what it is great.... I have been going there for years and the staff is the reason I keep going back.
Amazing place. So many things to do and a staff that pays attention to every detail. Bell Captain Manny is truly amazing. He patiently answered all our questions. He has an excellent staff that attended to all our needs. The concierges were great as well. The pools are some of the most beautiful I have seen in my life. Everything about this property is perfectly maintained. Housekeeping staff pays attention to every detail in the suites and we came back to a spotless place every day. The bars and restaurants are equally as nice. Food is excellent. I hope to be able to return. I travel a lot and this is one of the most stunning properties and well trained staffs I have come across in my life.
