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
Our stay at The Cape was incredible. All of the staff went above and beyond to make our stay so comfortable. The things they supplied for our son made travelling with him so easy - they always offered us a place in the shade for him to nap. The front end staff - Fatou & Marco were amazing as well. Will definitely be back!!
We first visited this hotel when they opened in 2015 and just had the chance to return. I was pleased to see they’ve kept up the property over the past 4 years. All the staff is hard working and friendly. Notable employees include Faustino at The Ledge, Hugo at the pool (HUGO for President), and Juanita at the spa. You will spend some $$$ dining here but the food and cocktails are delicious. In room dining was always prompt and our orders were correct. Housekeeping did an excellent job and we appreciated the turn down service as well. We did have some noisy neighbors (partying til 5:30 am) one night, but other than that we had no noise issues. If you’re looking for a more peaceful trip, I’d stick to weekdays as the weekends definitely attract more of a party crowd. Thanks to The Cape for a beautiful and relaxing get away!
Amazing food and views! Super friendly staff to help with all questions about what sights to see. They also helped up with some Spanish and the food was delicious. They were super attentive to anything we needed.
