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 resort is absolutely beautiful with gorgeous views of the ocean. The service was impeccable and the staff very friendly and helpful. The concierge called us the night before we left and offered to make dinner reservations for us. Late afternoon salsa, guacamole, chips and two beers were delivered (free) to your room. Would definitely go back and highly recommend this resort.
Well kept resort with attentive and friendly staff. We enjoyed the Dos Mares suite facing the ocean. We saw whales most mornings during our stay. Not much contact with our concierge, we met on arrival and a phone call mid way through our stay.
They need to expand the breakfast buffet choices, it’s good but could be better. Need more lunch selections on the menu. If you don’t see something you want then ask and they can probably accommodate. The manager at Don Manuel’s at lunch helped and assured us - just ask.
I’m not opposed to spending , but 2 bloody Mary’s at breakfast for $49 is over the top and we felt that we were taken . We only did that once and couldn’t understand that breakfast specials cocktails on the menu were in the $14 to $18 range. Because of this we ate dinners off property at great restaurants.
My overall rating is really a 4.5.
A blizzard hit Kansas City the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Our daughters headed back to college and we took advantage of Cyber Monday and booked a trip to Cabo. I hadn't been there in 10 years and my wife has never been there. We searched for the Best Resorts in Cabo and The Resort at Pedregal was first in-line on numerous sites. We booked it Monday and flew down on Thursday. When you arrive through their tunnel it is spectacular. They greet you with delicious margaritas and take your bags straight to your room. You check in at their "front desk" which is outside overlooking the resort and Pacific Ocean then they tour the property with you and take you to your room. The views are almost emotional they are so perfect. The property is charming and tucked into the mountainside. The infinity pools are beautiful and you can watch dolphins, whales, sea lions and Ray's jumping daily. The food is great at all their restaurants. We had a package with "breakfast included" and couldn't wait for that everyday as it was expansive, delicious and full of all natural ingredients. We already booked two weeks for next fall and can't wait to return...
If you are looking for special service, this is the resort for you. The entire staff are naturally happy to see you and know you by name. It’s a wonderful touch. Our personal concierge Gino was excellent and made a point to come see us several times during our visit to make sure we were enjoying our stay. Gino was there for us and made sure our stay was special. On our anniversary day, everyone wished us a happy anniversary, and Gino had a bottle of Champagne sent to our room.
At the pool, our pool server, Fernando was outstanding. He anticipated your every want and never hovered over you. If you left your chair, he would come over, without you knowing, straighten your towels or if they were wet give you new towels, adjust the umbrella ensuring that the person that wanted shade had it while the other person that didn’t want shade was not covered at all. There were vacationers that never knew he was doing this. He did it so you could enjoy your vacation. I advise you to seek him out.
Our expectations were high, but they turned out to be way too low for the experience we had here. Whatever I think about: room, food, amenities, staff, setting, comfort — the Resort at Pedregal was fantastic! At the pool, Pablo made the children happy and the adults relaxed, greeting every one by name and anticipating our wishes. In the dining room, the food was amazing (seems like a lame description). Fernando tended to our likes and dislikes, knowing the 4 year old only eats pasta! The level of service and hospitality was new to me. See you next year!
