Overview

Enchanting Baja Peninsula all-inclusive with Michelin muscles and a world-class spa

The Lowdown

When this seaside sanctuary opened doors in December 2016, it became the fifth property in the Velas Resorts collection, a brand that’s practically synonymous with Mexican coastal splendor. This 304-room oasis, however, is anything but a splashy behemoth thanks to a number of thoughtful design decisions, from a unique half-moon exterior to a three-story, open-air entryway all seamlessly blend in with the beachy surroundings. The Sea of Cortez, which explorer Jacques Costeau famously dubbed “the world’s aquarium,” remains a focal point throughout the expansive property: gaze at it from one of the many infinity pools, soak it in with a sunset on your suite’s private terrace, or enjoy it as an awe-inducing accompaniment to a cocktail at Miramar, an ocean-edge bar dotted with bonfires. Fearless epicures may opt for a meal at Frida, which serves up a contemporary spin on local classics, paying homage to its namesake painter with one especially extravagant masterpiece—the $25,000 taco, a gold flake-infused corn tortilla stuffed with Kobe beef, Beluga caviar, black truffle brie cheese, and Morita chilies, among other over-the-top ingredients.

In the Area

Sure, you’re just 30 minutes from Cabo San Lucas’s electric nightlife, but you likely won’t stray far from this aquatic wonderland. A quick water taxi ride will bring you to Playa del Amor, a gold-sand beach with towering cliffs, seemingly plucked from the pages of a romance novel. For thrill-seekers, there’s scuba diving at Gordo Banks, an offshore seamount that’s home to hammerhead sharks. Hundreds of humpbacks and Minkes choose Baja’s bays and lagoons to birth and raise their young—for front-row seats to this annual spectacle (peak season is December through May), don’t miss a whale watching tour, which the resort can help organize.

Outstanding Service

Outstanding service at this resort. This is not your normal all inclusive. Many steps above the norm and worth every dollar.

Special thanks Abigail, David and Luna who provided excellent service during our stay.

Looking forward to our next visit.

It is all in the details and this place knows how to give you a world class experience. We booked through Costco and had a wonderful private ride from the airport to the resort. We quickly were escorted to our room overlooking the beautiful ocean. We have been to may all inclusive resorts and the food and beverages along with the white glove service was so amazing. We felt like every dinner was like going out for a special occasion. If you are a foodie this is the place to be. The tasting menu at Autor is not to miss. We also did tequila and wine tastings. Pools are great, perfect temperate and yes it is unfortunate about the beach, but when you see the waves you understand why there is no swimming. My son enjoyed the kids club, even more the teen club. The spa also so relaxing. The resort was very quiet the week we visited. We loved not rushing out of breakfast to secure pool chairs, hardly had a make dinner reservations. Our Butler was very attentive always finding us through out the day. And the weather was perfect. Loved every minute.

The best food and service at any resort

Just recently returned from a 5 day trip to Los Cabos and the Grand Velas Resort. We were with a group of approx. 25 and there wasn't one person in our group who didn't comment on how great the food and service was. Even the buffet food was gourmet! Abigail at the serenity pool was incredible and more than eager to please. Great resort, the best food ever and the best people in Los Cabos to take care of our every need. I highly recommend this resort without hesitation!

Incredible experience

From our arrival to departure we were treated as royalty. No detail was missed. The room was beautiful. The view incomparable. We visited as many restaurants as we could in the small amount of time we were there and it was never disappointing. We will definitely come back!
