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
The Cape once again was awesome. Pool service was spot on. Manta restaurant great like always. Ventured out to other restaurants, all were delicious. Went whale watching...unbelievable!!! 3rd trip to Cape in a year, love it!!!
When you enter this hotel for the first time, the open-air lobby is truly stunning, overlooking the deep blue ocean. More:
-spacious and cutting-edge rooms, all facing the ocean.
-friendly and professional staff
-excellent food and service
-private and secure
-only one, the techno-dance beat at the main pool should take some "quiet breaks."
The Cape in Cabo is the perfect weekend getaway spot! The grounds are incredible, as is the staff. A special thanks to Pedro, Ishmael, Umberto, Reina and Fernando - your hospitality is so appreciated!
The Cape was very accommodating hotel, with beautiful views and the friendliest staff. The amenities, food and service was unmatched. Every guest should stop by the coffee shop (Glass Box) for some incredible coffee and snacks. Julio is the friendliest barista and loves to engage his customers. If you are spending the day by the pool, you can expect excellent service from Lenny, who's quick service and friendly personality, makes a relaxing day all the better. Other notable staff were Tomas at the valet and Samuel at the Rooftop bar.
Between the location, staff services and nightly events, you could not choose a better hotel during your visit to Cabo San Lucas.
Our family of 4, including 2 college age kids, loved our experience at The Cape. It’s a newer hotel, with lovely rooms and breathtaking views. The staff were experts at hospitality and service. Pablo and Rey were our awesome concierges and helped with everything from booking activities to helping locate lost baggage. Poolside, the service by Lenny and Bre was exceptional. The Ledge restaurant featured delicious local seafood, yet the service is what made it memorable as well. Thank you to Francisco and Edwardo for making our dinner so special. We’ll definitely be back!
