On quiet Monuments Beach, the Thompson Hotel group’s first property in Mexico is designed with its prime location in mind: all 161 guest rooms have dead-on views of the Sea of Cortez horizon and the iconic Arch in the distance. Designed by Mexico City architect Javier Sanchez, the interiors nod to Thompson Hotels’ signature midcentury style but add a thoughtful sense of place with bespoke, handmade-in-Mexico furnishings and regionally produced artworks. The guest rooms start over 550 square feet, and all have beds topped with sateen linens, gourmet minibars, free WiFi, rainfall showers, copperleaf tubs and private balconies furnished with daybeds and binoculars — essential for whale watching. On the dining front, lauded Mexican chef Enrique Olvera is behind the centerpiece La Manta restaurant, there’s also the Ledge, for Tex-Mex classics, cocktails in the lobby lounge, and drinks and dancing in the six-story alfresco rooftop lounge. Relaxation seekers are well catered to too, with a pampering spa, two pools (one built into a natural rock formation) and a private stairway down to quiet Monuments Beach.
In the Area
With a natural bounty of fresh seafood and a growing farm-to-table scene, Cabo San Lucas is becoming a foodie hot spot. Must stops include Flora’s Field Kitchen, for organic, seasonal fare; 7 Seas Seafood Grille, for exceptional ceviche with a sea view; and romantic Edith’s, for Baja cuisine and local seafood. Art lovers will get their fix on the Thursday Art Walk in the San Jose Art District, or a little farther north into Todos Santos, on the Pacific Coast, while adventure seekers can try ziplining, snorkeling and more with Cabo Adventures, and ATV riding in Baja’s High Sierra country with Sierra Buggies.
How to Get There
Right upfront, this is a very expensive hotel. But it might be the best in all of Cabo. The entire hotel and all the rooms have outstanding views across the bay to the Cabo arches. The rooms are beuatul and very comfortable, but best of all is the lounge and bar, which overlooks the ocean and an awesome surf break. The Cape also has a rooftop lounge, and their two restaurants are something special.
I never write reviews, but read them to make a determination for my travels. It must be said that my fiance' and I had the most amazing experience with the hotel, our room and the pool. The service was outstanding and the most accommodating experience I've had personally. Julio made us awesome coffees and lattes daily. The bellmen, Pedro and Humberto greeted us from our taxi with a smile and water. And when speaking of the front desk, Fernanda, Rebecca, Eder, Carlo, Reyna and Fatu were outstanding. Reyna made my birthday special but sending a cake and giving me the biggest hugs.........
We invented the perfect margarita while staying here, and now it’s on the hotels menu. Ask for the Puta Ama or the Annie-Sunny-Ivany. No sugar, a little kick and delicious.
Oha, and our stay was fantastic too!
This is an amazing hotel. The views from pretty much anywhere on the property are breathtaking. The deluxe king room was modern, clean, and inviting. The service everywhere on the hotel property was impeccable. Can't recommend it enough. We will be back.
Beautiful location. I recommend you stay for more than 3 days. The food in house is better than in the restaurants near by like la sunset monalisa or cocina del mar. The service was fine but the food was terrible, I do not understand the good reviews.
