Overview

Beautiful modern design throughout the hotel
Even basic rooms are very expensive

Recent visitors warn newcomers they won't want to leave this hotel once they've arrived. With its beachfront location on the shores of Cabo San Lucas, the hotel overlooks the famous El Arco. Everywhere you go in this hotel you'll run into spectacular scenery, literally – each guest room features ocean views. This, grouped with balconies, rain showers, kimono bathrobes, binoculars for whale watching and a welcome tequila amenity, not only make for a great getaway, but an unbeatable paradise. If guests do decide to leave their digs, they'll find even more luxury within the hotel's spa, nestled upon one of The Cape's natural rock formations. Lodgers can indulge in four bars, including the Pool Bar and the Rooftop Lounge, as well as two on-site restaurants, both serving up a blend of seafood, Mexican cuisine and American comfort dishes. Previous guests applauded the chefs for creating such flavorful food, no matter how simple the dish. But aesthetics and gastronomy aside, The Cape's most admirable quality is its impeccable service, according to travelers. From the moment guests arrived until the time they were bid a friendly adios, they felt they were truly taken care of.

It’s refreshingly grown-up, perfect for couples, but without an ounce of pretension.
