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
Me and my girlfriend were scheduled to go to Tulum this past weekend and decided to switch locations to Cabo due to the weather on the east coast of Mexico. While given 5 days to plan a trip to Cabo, finding a hotel was not a problem as we’ve seen pictures of The Cape on instagram and other social media platforms and it looked beautiful. The hotel lived up to it’s potential in all ways as we had excellent service in all aspects such as the pool, concierge, and room service. We were blown away by the view that The Cape provides its guests as it overlooks the famous arch in the distance with soothing sounds of the waves 24 hours a day. Needless to say we were more than satisfied with our stay at this hotel and have already decided that we will be staying here again on our next visit to Cabo.
Its difficult to chose one particular thing that was the most memorable. From the car service from the airport to the car service back to the airport, everything was memorable! Even before we left, Lupita, Gina, and your transportation team were so helpful! When arriving Alfonzo was extremely helpful getting us from the SUV to the check-in and then proceeded to assist us to our room with our bags. He gave us a tour of our room, explained some of the features, and explained how we should enjoy our generous tequila gift. We were able to enjoy the salt water pool that day. Gregory and Alex and the rest of the pool staff were so helpful at our cabana, where we dined, drank, relaxed and enjoyed the lovely pool! Our first night, we weren't able to enjoy the Rooftop due to a private party but we got to enjoy the fireworks and the other lovely gift of chocolate covered strawberries and champagne to help us celebrate our honeymoon! On Sunday, we enjoyed a nice buffet brunch at the Ledge and then proceeded to the pool for our complimentary cabana and some more pool time! That night we enjoyed Manta. We were late and even canceled our reservations due to the many drinks we enjoyed at the pool. But we were able to make it down and they were still able to get us a table outside, right at sunset! When checking out on Monday, Alfonzo was yet again amazing with collecting our bags and getting us into our SUV to sadly say good bye to The Cape. Thank you for everything!
The Cape was pricey--but they deliver consistent high levels of customer service and food and beverage. The employees were much better at customer service than what I typically experience in the US--even at places like the Ritz or Mandarin Orient.
Great service. Some of the best service i have ever had and i have traveled a lot. Very pricey food, drink and snacks Music was over the top loud and repetitive at the pool Try mixing it up some.. Would never want to stay below the Roof top bar again and listen to music till 2 am.
My girlfriend and I had an amazing 5 night stay at the Cape in Cabo. The staff was extremely friendly, and all spoke very good English. The service was incomparable, from check-in to checkout (e.g. spotless resort, clean rooms, excellent restaurants, rooftop bar, Spa, bell hops, concierge services, and an amazing pool). Alex was our poolside server each day, and he was great. I highly recommend requesting him when visiting. The Spa is also a must. We got an amazing 60-minute couples massage and given full access to the Spa amenities. Book your trip to the Cape ASAP!!
