Located on the Baja Peninsula, this luxury resort appears to be built into the mountains that border the large expanse of beach. All of the resorts’ 105 rooms have private plunge pools, while guests can also enjoy the resort’s three main pools and beach. Of the available rooms, 29 are large suites. Kids are very welcome, with half- and full-day kids’ programs, babysitting service and cribs and rollaway beds available. Four onsite restaurants provide all-day dining, and the resort features a spa. Wi-Fi is offered free throughout the resort, and a CD/DVD player and library are available to all guests. Even pets are welcome at this Cabo resort!

My fiancé and I came here for his birthday and I must say we had an exceptional experience. The resort is truly a 5 star resort. From the moment we booked our trip, our personal concierge Carlos quickly came into the picture and he went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we needed before our arrival. Once we arrived, Carlos and all the other staff made us their number one priority at the resort. We were welcomed with a birthday cake and some champagne in our room in recognition of my fiancé’s birthday. This was so sweet of them. The resort is breathless we felt like we were literally in paradise! The location was just perfect! The view was amazing. Through out the rest of our stay we were pampered with little gifts and snacks. We truly felt special. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Cabo. I want to thank Carlos and the entire staff for the amazing work they do. I will be definitely coming back soon. This was our best vacation so far.
Any reason at all is a good reason to visit!
The resort is transitioning to a Waldorf Astoria property 09/2019.
The service is absolutely top notch. The physical property is stunning.
It is top dollar but so very worth it.
This is the perfect hotel for kicking it. We actually spent a lot of time in our room, enjoying the sounds and views of the crashing Pacific right below our private plunge pool. 856 square feet. A fabulous bathtub and shower. Consequently, we did a lot of room service, which I am normally not a fan of. They'll set you up either indoors or out. My top recommendation for room service:
Split the country breakfast. More food than two people can eat. Lots of protein with eggs and meat, plus potatoes, tomatoes, bread/pastries, coffee or tea and juice. The best part was the fruit plate! A coconut half filled and overflowing with ripe fruit. Beautiful presentation and perfection to sit outside and enjoy this meal and the surroundings. Enough to keep you going until 4:00 guacamole!
Believe it or not, the ribeye steak was shockingly good! A large steak, very tender and juicy. The hamburger was also surprisingly good. Pear and wasabi mayo... fries are plentiful and crispy. The side salad was delicious and delicate.
Do yourself a favor and get a reservation for dinner at El Farallon. Truly an unforgettable experience to have dinner there. A four course fresh seafood dinner outside next to the rocks and surf.
The pools are wonderful, I got a complimentary mango and tamarind margarita one day... a massage and facial mask on another. Then I spent a boatload on facial products! Oh well, these things happen.
