    Cabo San Lucas, BCN
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 3791 reviewsTripAdvisor (3791)
    Free Parking
    Nestled within the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, Grand Solmar Land's End Resort & Spa charms travelers with its prime ocean views and Mexican-inspired decor. Suites are highlighted with bright red, green, blue or orange accents and outfitted with wooden furniture and private terraces that face the ocean. When you're ready to engage with your surroundings, you'll find infinity pools, shaded cabanas and plenty of water sports activities (for an extra fee). After you've gotten your fill of the great outdoors, sample the traditional Mexican fare served at La Roca Restaurant or one of four other on-site dining venues. If you're still seeking an extra dose of luxury, step out of the sun and into the spa for a replenishing treatment. You can also count on total pampering outside of the spa; previous visitors said the friendly resort staff makes you feel welcome with extras, such as remembering guests' names and arranging nightly dinner reservations. Members of the I Prefer rewards program can earn or redeem points here.

    Grand Velas Los Cabos
    San Jose del Cabo
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 424 reviewsTripAdvisor (424)
    Free WiFi

    Situated about 35 minutes from Los Cabos International Airport, the Grand Velas Los Cabos receives a glowing recommendation from recent guests for its attentive and caring staff, and tasty dishes served at the resort's seven restaurants. In fact, some reviewers said this is a prime property for foodies. The property's suites, which measure more than 1,100 square feet, also earned praise from lodgers. Along with spectacular ocean views, rooms feature Nespresso coffee makers, welcome bottles of artisanal mezcal, red and white wine, and bathrooms with Jacuzzis and L'Occitane toiletries. Outside the rooms, travelers can enjoy three tiered infinity pools (including one for adults only), a kids and teens club, a holistic spa, a fitness center and nightly entertainment. But aside from the amenities and facilities, it was the 24-hour personal concierge service that had travelers planning a repeat visit. The only downside? The beach that Grand Velas Los Cabos is located on is not swimmable.
