Rooftop infinity pool
Adults-only; families will have to book elsewhere

Perched along the scenic Los Cabos corridor (within 4 miles of downtown San José del Cabo), the luxurious Hotel El Ganzo offers prime access to the beach and San Jose del Cabo's dining venues. But with three dining establishments serving everything from traditional ceviche and chilaquiles (tortillas layered with eggs, onion and cheese) to Japanese and Peruvian-inspired cuisine, there's hardly a reason to leave the property. When you're not indulging in a relaxing massage or body treatment at the spa or catching up on some light reading with your feet dipped in the rooftop infinity pool, you can lounge at the hotel's private beach club. Afterward, kick back in your well-appointed accommodations, which come with organic bath products, Wi-Fi access, Frette robes and stocked minibars. Apart from the modern rooms, past visitors especially praise the hotel's courteous, friendly staff members who they say go above and beyond to take care of guests.

The newest addition to San Jose del Cabo has an uber chic vibe where guests can interact with artists, musicians, and filmmakers in a creative and luxurious setting.

Fodor's Choice



Several architects contributed to the overall sleek, chic design, from the bold neon sign outside the stark white cubist facade to the waterfall wall near the spa.
