Mediterranean playground meets beach chic, with white-on-white buildings, desert landscaping and cascading pools that tumble down the hillside to the beach. Once you get a view of the Pacific coast from the lobby during check-in—chilled hibiscus juice in hand—you’ll never take an ocean view for granted again. Whether you opt for a standard Garden View Junior Suite or the Three-Bedroom Presidential Villa, you can fall asleep in a kingsize bed to the flicker of flames in your wood-burning fireplace, or wind down your evening with some stargazing, using your own telescope on your private patio. Larger suites have such pampering extras as private Jacuzzis and rooftop sundecks. When it’s time to clean up for a date at one of the resort’s three restaurants, the enormous limestone bathrooms include walk-in closets, a vanity area, and deep soaking tubs and separate glassed-in showers all stocked with Bulgari Thé Vert amenities. Las Ventanas is all about the little touches that go above and beyond. The staff will unpack your suitcase on arrival and then return with a custom-designed sewing kit to match your wardrobe; turn-down service includes a bespoke scent that will lull you to sleep. Pool butlers see to your every sunbathing need: They will clean your sunglasses and bring you iPods and current best-sellers to pass the time while you sip the smoothies and popsicles they periodically pass out. Dining options range from Baja-Mediterranean fare in sea-facing The Restaurant, to Mexican tapas and ceviche in the more casual Sea Grill. Special add-on experiences include one-on-one cooking classes in the chef’s garden and tequila tastings at the Sushi & Ceviche Bar that will stock you up with stories to tell your untanned friends back home.
In the Area
Though the nightlife is thumping and the Marina district has plenty of restaurants, bars and shops, the best reason to head into tourist-favorite Cabo San Lucas is to charter one of Las Ventanas’ three yachts for a day of snorkeling around the famous Los Arcos rock formation, or go deep-sea fishing for the enormous marlin that have been attracting sportsmen to Cabo for decades. In the opposite direction, the hamlet of San Jose del Cabo is a much better bet, with plentiful boutiques and galleries peddling local artisanal crafts and wares. Many of the resorts in the area are self-contained, and the restaurant options are limited, but for a great meal out, venture into the hills to Flora Farm for a gourmet multi-course dinner prepared with organic ingredients grown a few feet from your table, or live music and drinks in the beer garden.
How to Get There
Beautiful resort, and the service is impeccable.
The staff were incredibly.
The beach is very clean and great for long walks.
Food is delicious especially Arbol and El Restaurante.
A word of warning, the beverages are prohibitively expensive.
A very relaxing way to spend march break, highly recommend.
We are here now and cannot express ardently enough how sincerely magical this place is...each staff is kind and genuine. Our butler Daniel could not be more sincere. They absolutely make you feel like they are happy to make your stay the most memorable as possible. Only sad to say tomorrow is our last night. Not one area...service,food,rooms,beach and pool is anything but stellar. Thank you Las Ventanas for making our anniversary trip so special —the Carrozzi’s
I don't even know where to begin. We have just returned from a 7 day stay in this truly magical place. We have stayed at MANY luxury 5 star resorts in the world including our favourite the Four Seasons Maui and never did I think any beach resort could compare until we stayed here. This place surpassed our expectations in every possible way. The moment you arrive at this resort you realize you are somewhere incredibly special and you just cannot believe it. Our room was fully equipped to handle our 9 month old baby. From high chair, to crib to change table to diapers and wipes to baby bath tub. I have never quite seen anything like this. The butler staff is absolutely amazing. The restaraunt staff goes ABOVE and beyond and no request is ever met with refusal. We took our stroller down to Cabo with us and although there are steps on the property there was ALWAYS someone running to help us carry it over. It become a running joke at one point because literally you didn't have to lift a finger here. I called for an iron one day at to my surprise within minutes arrived someone from housekeeping insisting they iron my husband's shirt for us and they wouldn't have it any other way. For those that they say they do not cater to kids I would HIGHLY disagree. They pureed food for her at every restaraunt and did it with a smile (and complimentary). The hotel staff knew our little girl by name and they entertained her everywhere. There was even small surprises left in our room for her. Ah, i can go on and on about the amazing things this resort does well because the list does not end. If i had to gripe about 1 small thing and this is very, very small but our butler would ask us daily what time we wanted our rental car brought around the front for us to either go to lunch/dinner. Every single time we went up there our car would not be there and we would have to request it be brought up. It would be brought up within minutes and it really is not a big deal BUT if I am being nit picky that would be my my only criticism.
For those comparing to the One and Only/Pedegral/Cape- we did visit those resorts as well and although all stunning, they seemed too large to me. It appeared they didn't have the same relationship with their guests due to the expansive size of their resorts and subsquent guest count. If your looking for an intimate, memorable and truly magical vacation where every single need is looked after I wouldn't bother looking anywhere else. In fact, we are already looking at dates to return and we haven't even fully unpacked!
We stayed in the penthouse with family for 4days, I cannot tell you enough about our experience. Everything was perfect, excellent service, excellent food. Everyone is so friendly, can’t wait to go back next year.
Our Villa hose Oscar Hernandez was brilliant. Such an amazing host.
Humberto at the bar was so good.
Can’t stop talking about our experience with our family and friends.
My wife and I celebrated our 15th year anniversary this pas week at Las Ventanas. We cannot wait to go back.
The customer service here is second to none. Our butlers during our stay ( Luis, Elena and Jesus) took care of everything for us and were always happy to help. The team at Las Ventanas is always smiling and helpful.
Our room was perfect and huge. We had breakfast and dinner on our patios. Bed was super comfortable and bathroom had lots of space.
We loved the spa and fitness facilities. We actually booked second massages we liked them so much. Loved the Peloton machines in the gym.
The food was phenomenal. Arbol is the best spot and great ambiance. However, we went to the Tequila Bar the last night and had raw fish and poke. Diego who took care of us introduced us to nice tequila. Wish we had gone there more.
Favorite thing was sitting at the pools and the team at LV takes such good care of you. I will really miss the jalapeño margaritas and tacos everyday in the sun.
On flight home, we agreed that this was best trip we had ever been on together. Cabo is a perfect location and Las Ventanas is best place there for many reasons.
