How to Get There
I booked this through my timeshare exchange. The claim through is that the resort must meet certain quality criteria to be on that exchange—and it certainly did!
Make sure if you don’t have a rental car, book the hotel car service to pick you up. It was $80 for up to 6 people. You don’t have to deal with the timeshare peeps trying to give you a ride to your hotel— they picked us up in a newer Escalade, and with the heat gave us each a bottle of water and the A/C was blasting in the 90 degree/85% humidity weather.
When we first arrived, we saw multiple people at the pool just leaning against the edge & looking out towards the ocean. It seemed weird until we made it to the pool ourselves. Talk about the most relaxing thing one can do. Highly recommend that!
The “villas” which are basically 2 bedroom suites are spacious & quite modern. The balconies from the living room & master bedroom were nice surprises. As was the full kitchen & dining table. There’s a view from all of the rooms.
They have theme nights at their restaurants like pasta night, Mexican fiesta & steak night. For those who love their drinks, there’s also a learn to make margaritas night.
There’s a small Mercado where you can buy some limited groceries—we did that the first couple of days. A loaf of bread, a dozen eggs & some jelly—about $15 US dollars but perfect for my simple breakfasts. If you get a chance there’s a Grocery store not far from the hotel (El comer) where you can pick up fresh veggies & meat (if your cooking) for a short taxi ride. We borrowed a friend’s vehicle to drive around in (valet parking $10 per day.)
The staff... what can I say? They were the nicest & most helpful we have encountered. And all of them encouraged my pitiful practice of Spanish and were so sweet.
I definitely will stay here again!
This resort was a wonderful escape from the hotel zone experience. Located between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose Del Cabo, the property is extremely private, carved into the hillside, and has a beautiful series of beachfront infinity pools. It was a short drive in our rental car to amazing public beaches, delicious authentic local food, and the charming town of San Jose Del Cabo.
A big thanks to Salvador at the pool, who was not only a great server, there when you need him, not when you don’t, but he helped us with some great local recommendations. ¡Viva Santo Salvador!
Any trip to this area without visiting nearby Todos Santos would be a shame. A little bit of a drive, (60-90 minutes), this unspoiled small town is an artisans paradise, with art, ceramics, textiles, leatherwork, and once again, delicious local cuisine. This is also home to the Hotel California, a boutique hotel with distinct and uniquely themed rooms. The people here were the friendliest, with no carnival midway feel you can get from bigger towns hawking gaudy trinkets.
We have made numerous trips to Cancun, and the feeling here is much more laid back. The busy party scene of Cancun can be found in spades in Cabo San Lucas, but for a more authentic taste of life in the Amigo Country, the surrounding area is hard to beat, without traveling into Mexico’s interior.
Take the time to discover and enjoy the charm of this region before tourism and crowds expand the reach of Cabo San Lucas any further.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom premium villa at this resort in early October, 2018. Baja California has a different topography than we are used to for Mexico, and it provides for some amazing beauty of desert mountains and deep blue ocean. The Westin has been skillfully built into the land, and is truly amazing. As with all Westin Resort properties, the room was immaculate, staff was friendly, and the food in restaurants was probably the best we have had in any Westin resort. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet place to enjoy the natural beauty. A couple of things to be aware of staying at this resort, or for that matter at any of the resorts in the hotel zone. You are a long way from either town (Cabo San Lucas or San Jose del Cabo). We vacation most often in Cancun, where you are a 12 peso bus ride from just about anywhere, or an easy walk across the street to a great mall. Here, there are 3 options to get anywhere. You can take a taxi which is approximately $40-$50 US, the hotel shuttle which runs on a schedule for appx. $15 per person (round trip), or the local tourist shuttle which costs $2 per person each way. We made use of the local shuttle which worked well, however to get to the bus stop requires a hotel provided ride in the golf cart. This also worked well, however on the way back, you have to call them on your cell phone and wait anywhere from 5 minutes to 20 minutes for them to come get you. This can be problematic if the weather is hot. Another option we did not explore was to rent a car for the entire stay. The main reason I did not try this is because of figuring out where to park when we went to town. Anyway, there are several really nice grocery stores, but with the need to travel to them it is difficult to deal with the logistics. This means you end up eating much more at the resort. The food there was some of the best I have had at Westin resorts, but it really increases the cost of your vacation. They do not discount their theme nights, and you can easily rack up $1000/week or more in cost if you are eating lunch and dinner at the resort each day. If you have unlimited funds or have cracked the code on renting a car then this is not a problem. Another issue we found, is that the Pacific Ocean there is very rough and you can not swim in it. They have beautiful pools though, so I did not find it so much of a problem.
In any case, the resort itself is incredible. The staff is very responsive and since the resort is fairly new I am hoping they iron some of the kinks out (like providing a free shuttle into town, improved television and a more fully stocked grocery story).
So, I had the pleasure of staying at the Westin 4 nights (Sept 29-Oct 3) with five of my BFFs. This place is GORGEOUS! What really makes this resort so special is the staff! Our first encounter was with Cesar Guerrero at the front desk who was so pleseant and professional. He gave us a run down of the property and was so helpful. BTW, the views from the open air lobby are simply stunning!
There are several dining options onsite. Only one option, Baja Bar & Grill was not available during our visit due to flooding. We enjoyed eating at Margaritas which is at the swim up bar, Great burgers, burritos, ribs, etc. The BURGERS are amazing! Plenty of local beers to choose from and the margaritas are fantastic! The staff at the pool bar were also very nice and professional. I wished I remembered their names but they all were fantastic. The other dining establishment we dined at was Cocina Casera. This was our favorite! The food was SO GOOD! We dined here 3X because we enjoyed the food so much. Don’t miss Steak night, Seafood night, and one night we just ordered off the menu and everything was delicious. A few examples of some dishes include Grouper, Beef Short Ribs, and Grilled Shrimp. Portions were huge and prices were reasonable. And the servers here were truly outstanding! Cesar, Elvis, Edgar, and Victor went above and beyond to ensure our dining experience was amazing! There are also several grills that guests can use to cookout. FYI, we took advantage of going to Costco and picking up groceries! The staff will happily start the grill up for you. The other option for food we enjoyed was Mercadito. Here you will find a variety of grocery items, wine/liquor ( we were surprised at how reasonable the prices were for liquor), deli items, snacks, Starbucks, pastries, etc. Again, staff courteous and professional. Jose Luis Barrera was delightful and knowledgeable. We also utilized room service and food was delivered hot and fast.
So, if you love swimming you’ll be in heaven with the numerous infinity pools on the property. I loved that they’ve were NUMEROUS lounge chairs around the pools and on the beach. We never had to worry about not finding seating. Beware the swimming is not safe or allowed due to the rough waves. We also utilized the spa which was magnificent! Upon arrival Angela literally took us by the hand and led us inside the spa. She gave us a tour, gave us our robes/slippers and took us to an area to relax before and after our treatments. We had the most amazing massages given by Edgar and Omar. The spa facility is really amazing! We didn’t use them but there are tennis courts, a fitness center, and golf as well. If I had to say one thing I wished was better, it would be this. The bar area around the pool closes early, like around 6pm or 7pm. With the Sports bar being closed it would be nice to have it stay open longer.
We really enjoyed our stay here and wouldn't hesitate to come back. What really makes this resort so special is the amazing staff. The service is really top notch and everyone we had encounters with were so hospitable. Looking forward to returning soon. Maybe during whale watching season in December. You won't regret staying here!
This was our first trip to Baja California Sur. First time then of course to The Westin. It was a wonderful and wise choice. We went for some R&R and got exactly that. Was not crowded and we were able to pick where we wanted to "plant" ourselves for the day around one of the three pools. Went for a walk every day but please note that there are rocks to climb over and depending on the tide, the rocks may be easy to go over and then there could be ones that are a bit more steep if the tide is up. There is plenty of sand to enjoy. Just a point to make about the water - during the time we were at this resort, the tide was such that no swimming in the Sea of Cortez was allowed. The tide/waves were too dangerous. Lifeguards were vigilant about protecting the guests and did not allow anyone to go more than ankle deep and then only where it was close to where they could watch you.
Service was great. Everyone was wonderful. Everyone had a smile on their face and greeted you with open arms. Breakfast buffet was amazing! So much it was very hard to choose what to eat. Also liked that the breakfast later - until 11am. Allowed for a very relaxing morning and not having to rush to get to breakfast before it was shut down. Evening theme nights were good - Steak Night was the best (please try the Skirt Steak).
Room was wonderful and large. We had the 2 bedroom (were only two of us) but was so nice having that extra space. Had all the amenities one could need/want for an enjoyable stay. View from our room was directly overlooking the Sea of Cortez - with a great view of the sunrise.
