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
OTT. Once in a lifetime opportunity for us. Thank you to all the beautiful staff. I loved the way they all interacted with each other in the background it seems like a happy place to work which then reflected on the guests. A lot of special touches I won’t mentioned because I don’t want to be a spoiler !!
We didn't stay at the hotel, my review is based on my experiences eating there and touring the grounds/dealing with the service staff.
UNBELIEVABLE! ATTENTION TO DETAIL!
Service staff is incredible. Our dinner at El Restaurante was quite possibly the best 5 course meal of my life. My drink was impeccable. I didnt get out or return to my seat without someone running to pull out my chair.
The water glasses/drink glasses never passed halfway empty. The property is incredible. The service staff are unbelievably eloquent, respectful, and truly happy with their job. That is the best feeling when you are serviced by people who take pride in their work, and are paid fairly (it was obvious they loved their job).
Our waiter, Frang (with a G) was the best I have ever had. He was so sweet and we had a conversation with him. He talked to us about each course, where he was from, and the pride of the meal. We finished with a nice surprise for my husbands 40th birthday.
We stayed at the Hilton down the street, and I walked along the beach the following morning and landed again to Las Ventanas, where Leopoldo, whom I have never met before, continued to show me what Las Ventanas was al about. He greeted me with a cold bottle of water, a warm smile, and offered to take my picture as I was strolling the beach alone (I am an early riser, my husband is not).
I spoke with him and he proceeded to tell me how much he loved the resort, his job, adn that he had been there for 19 years. He even said when there was a hurricane they kept all their employees on payroll because they cared for their families.
How amazing! I will definitely return to this beautiful beach, that amazing restaurant, and hopefully see my friends Frang and Leopoldo. This time I will stay at Las ventanas, it truly is paradise on earth and magical!
Las Ventanas al Paraiso has mastered the art of hospitality. If you value a resort service team that anticipates your every need, you should select this property for your stay without any hesitation. They were generous, gracious, and effective in providing a peaceful stay. The quality of the rooms, amenities, toiletries, and resort facilities are simply better. Pedregal should only be considered if you desire a superior view of the Land's End landscape in Cabo San Lucas (for a less-expensive version, go to Grand Solmar).
No review needed. Literally the best vacation we have had in years. Plan to return in a few months. Service was spot-on. Staff kept the grounds perfect. Food was excellent. Literally no complaints. Our go-to going forward.
The staff at Las Ventanas exceeded my expectations of providing excellent service. It was if they could anticipate what I wanted by providing something before I knew I needed it.
Our room was beautifully appointed and opened up to a nice patio next to the adult only infinite pool with a view of the beach and Sea of Cortez. It was a fantastic view and conveniently located. The pool butlers made sure we always had a bucket with ice and water as well as any food and drinks we wanted.
The food was excellent at Sea Grill, El Restaurante and Arbol and I mainly ordered seafood, which was amazing. The meals are on the expensive side especially U.S. wines so don't order a bottle without knowing how much it costs first (learn from my mistake!).
I had two massages during my stay - a foot/leg massage by the pool and a stress-reducing massage in the spa. They were excellent and very relaxing to the point of almost falling asleep, which is unusual for me during a massage.
I'm looking forward to returning in the future, and I highly recommend staying here if you want to be pampered!
