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
We have visited Las Ventanas many times... but had gone almost two years since the last visit. We found the Hotel at the top of its game... in service as well as its top notch facilities. You elevate customer service to a best in class level and as in previous visits our satisfaction was the guiding light.
Congratulations!! We will be back soon...
My husband and I just returned from LVP. We celebrated our 15th anniversary at the resort. All I can say is WOW! We are extensive travelers and this place was, by far, our favorite hotel. The service! Unbelievable! Talk about waited on hand and foot. We loved the fitness center and the complimentary classes with Edgardo, the trainer. From the band that played upon our arrival in the lobby to the complimentary 10 minute massage .... it was perfect from the moment we arrived.
Is it cheap? No, but you get what you pay for! Will def. be back!
My wife calls it the "LVP Bubble". We've been coming for years. Stay here once, all of a sudden Auberge, Ritz, Four Seasons etc become major yawns.
The staff is incredible and many have been there for 10 plus years. That tells you all you need to know about the place.
Staying here was a truly unparalleled experience. The grounds and accommodations are top notch and I found the design particularly striking. The staff, however, I think is the true differentiating factor that makes staying here unforgettable. Somehow I felt like every person I interacted with cared and wanted me to enjoy my vacation to the highest degree possible.
I want to mention the Tequila Signs activity at the resort, because I did not see it mentioned very often when I was originally doing research before I selected LVP. I normally do not like too many kind of tourist activities or things like that, but it was one of the most fun things I have done at a resort. I think it was about an hour or more one-on-one with one of their tequila masters, blind tasting four different tequilas, interspersed with more tequila, mezcal, and yummy and expertly paired snacks. Between the drinks and food alone, I think you get your money's worth. I am not too heavy of a drinker so I did not polish off every taster I had, but even the heaviest drinkers would probably leave this with a good buzz. I feel a little silly about how little I knew about tequila going in, but after I felt like I had gotten to lear and experience so much about tequila! Oscar, who was our tequila master, is an absolute pro, and talking with him about tequila really felt like talking to a master somm about wine. He even related the tequila to wine for me and scotch for husband, as those are drinks we both have considerable experience in. Even if you do already know your way around a bottle of tequila, I am sure you would still have fun with the blinds and even learn something, as I could tell we barely scratched the surface of Oscar's knowledge. Highly recommend you experience this while at LVP.
Last time we stayed at the One and Only so this time we tried Las Ventanas. Overall this a great hotel with fabulous luxurious rooms and great sea views. Right on the beach the grounds are pristine and the service is excellent. The food delicious and they cooked the fish we brought back from an expedition too. As good as you'll get in Cabo except one thing,.. the price. This is a heinously expensive hotel which constantly makes you mindful of anything that is not six star. I am sure there is better value to be found in Cabo but if you can afford it then its worth a visit.
