This hotel’s look is flawless: sleek and modern but softened by whimsical woven metalwork, gauzy curtains and vintage wood furniture. The spa is a particular standout, with colonial-style stonework and dark wood hinged lockers, pebble-lined tubs and an ethereal lightscape made of translucent seashells.
Bed & Bath
The dreamy decor extends to the villa bedrooms, where perforated metal lamps and draped fabric over the cushy pillowtop beds lend a laid-back look. More like private homes than vacation villas, even the One-Bedroom Villas are 1,200 square feet, and all spaces have fully equipped kitchens, living rooms and private verandas. Guests may be tempted to draw the curtains and sleep forever, but don’t — there’s a lot more relaxing to be done outside in the Mexican sunshine.
For a sprawling resort, the atmosphere is laid-back and intimate — especially in the trilevel infinity pool that stretches all the way down to the beach. Little nooks abound and suit every fancy: daybeds over the water, umbrella-shaded lounge chairs flanking the pool, bamboo pods with pillows and thatch-roofed palapas on the beach. Head to al fresco Flor de Noche restaurant for an icy margarita at the swim-up bar. The heated pools are perfect for sampling a cocktail at the swim-up bar, and while guests can’t swim in the sea here (an aggressive rip and crashing shore break make it unsafe), the long stretch of coastline is lovely for afternoon walks.
In the Area
Overlooking the Sea of Cortez, warm and sunny Los Cabos — the two towns of San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas — has a something-for-everyone vibe that attracts spring breakers, honeymooners and families galore. Take a dip in Baja’s natural aquarium by scuba diving or snorkeling in the Sea of Cortez with Cabo Adventures; see shipwrecks, caves and reefs in such famous dive sites as Pelican Rock and Land’s End. Learn to surf at the mellow Costa Azul surf break, just a few minutes from the resort, with the instructors at Baja Outback. More of a land rover? Every Thursday evening between November and June, San Jose del Cabo’s art district puts on a collaborative open-house gallery night. Or spend Wednesday or Saturday morning strolling around the terrific local farmers market.
How to Get There
Sergio Salinas is awesome! The customer service was great. He was so appreciative of me and catered to my ever need. He even carried my to-go food to the room for for sick fiancée! Sergio kept me
Engaged with conversation, which prompted me to buy sushi and more tequila lol. I will be back, all because of Segio
By far the best of any of the Diamond properties great staff, great accommodations and wonderful weather!! Plenty of seating availability around the pools, nice in pool bar area. Towels exchanged daily and room tidied up as well Great restaurants on the property as well
Great staff,great rooms,not enough restaurants,great pool,but slippery tile all over. Flooded hallways,due to rain. Not enough elevator. Too many stairs,some with no railing. Ocean is pretty,but no swimming is allowed. Rooms were great,but tile got slippery due to humidity. AC works,but if you left the lanai door even cracked open, a fine mist covered the floor. This place is ripe for a lawsuit. Steps into the pools,but sometimes there was a step before you reaching the railing. Good location. Nice shops and restaurants across the street. The resort had a marketplace cafe and bakery but it needs a deli of some sort.
