This Baja peninsula resort has all the makings of a James Bond film set: entry via a torch-lit mountain tunnel, giant stone gates, and a perfectly isolated location on the tip of a 24-acre peninsula overlooking the turbulent Sea of Cortez. Its collection of modern adobe buildings look more like a Mediterranean village than a hotel, where 66 rooms all feature fireplaces, locally made ceramics, and private plunge pools with staggering ocean views (helped by in-room telescopes). The grounds themselves were made for lengthy strolls: walkways wind around the hillside, past the extensive spa, the enormous infinity pool (a popular setting for exchanging vows), all the way up to El Farallón, the open-air restaurant and adjacent champagne lounge built right into the cliffside. Dig in to award-winning seafood while listening to nightly live music and the incessant crash of the waves below.
In the Area
Nature is integral to stays in Baja. Cabo reigns as one of the best sport-fishing destinations in the world, and The Resort at Pedregal’s proximity (an 11-minute drive) to Cabo San Lucas—a jumping-off point for adventures like sport fishing, scuba diving, and golf—means guests are invited to be as active as they want. Whether you’re a first-time amateur or semi-pro, Cabo Fishing will help you refine your technique on a five- to eight–hour charters for one to eight people. Cabo San Lucas is also home to El Médano, the area’s favorite swimmable beach. After laying out, head to The Office for mid-day snacks (ceviche, nachos, fish tacos), fun drinks, and great people-watching right on the sand. A boat trip from the marina is another must for seeing the area’s famous sights, including Lover’s and Divorce Beach and El Arco. Looking to up the romance? Dinners with a view at Sunset da Mona Lisa, a half-hour’s drive away, are second to none.
How to Get There
This is a beautiful resort with amazing, personal service. From the moment they pick you up at the airport things are perfect. The place is like a fortress - a large gate admits you to the tunnel. The rooms are gorgeous and large - I can't image a bad room in the entire resort. The food was very good. The guacamole, salsa, and chips each day at four were fantastic. The spa was great as was an afternoon spent at the more private spa pool. The pool and poolside service were perfect - never any trouble finding chairs either in the sun or the shade. The only negative of this place is that the beach, although beautiful, is not swimmable. Watching the whales (binoculars provided) was a special treat as you could see them from anywhere on property. The gym is well stocked with yoga rooms and a full crossfit gym.
My partner and I went here for a long weekend trip in September 2018. The resort is absolutely amazing - not over the top nice, but a perfect balance of tasteful decor and beauty. The staff and service were really spectacular and the food was delicious. I highly recommend this resort. I didn't want to leave the resort, which is never my feeling when I travel (since I usually want to venture out and explore).
11 days and 10 nights of absolute honeymoon paradise! I often wonder what it is like to live a day in the shoes of someone with world fame and the money that comes with it...at the Resort at Pedregal, I feel that I have come as close as it comes to living in those shoes. The resort, staff, service, food, drink, and overall care that we experienced was second-to-none.
My wife and I chose this resort based off the many wonderful things we had seen and read regarding the resort, and I will be the first to tell you that they are all true! From the pick-up at the airport using a high end car service, all the way to the way they turn down your room for your evening activities, the staff looks at every possible way to make you feel like you are the only one they are there to make happy. Book a visit and you will be sure to making a return trip, I know we will!
We have been in Cabo for 3 weeks but as a tradition we always finish our vacation with 3 to 4 nights at this resort. The hospitality is born here! The service you experience is absolute and complete. Everyone that works in the industry needs to come here and be thought how taking care of a guests is supposed to be like. My husband and I travel the world and I owe several restaurants, so coming here rejuvenate me and reminds me always why we chose this business. Thank you to Pepe Vargas for making it so special. Thank you to Edwardo for being such a great embassador of the hospitality culture, Angel, Puncho and Victor for being amazing at what they do. We decided to stay 1 more night...just because...it is worth it!
From the minute you drive through the front gate, you feel as if you have entered another world. Driving through the tunnel and seeing the blue waters of the ocean in the distance takes your breath away. My family of 5 traveled and stayed in the 2 bedroom casita. The casita was beautiful and we enjoyed the fresh guacamole and margaritas brought to us every day at our outdoor pool area. Pool service was fantastic as well as all restaurants. Plan to put this on our list for a return visit!
