Cabo Azul Resort

Paseo Malecón, San José del Cabo, Baja California Sur, 23400, Mexico

On the beach in San José del Cabo, this chic, whitewashed property is peaceful from the moment you walk through the 20-foot antique door marking the entrance. Giving a glimpse of what’s in store, a waterfall wall and Indian marble floors lead to a breathtaking lobby centered by a circular rope structure dropping 1,200 feet from the ceilings. A staircase leads to the main focus, an open-air chapel overlooking the ocean, an obvious favorite for brides; at least two weddings take place here per week. Featuring five pools and three restaurants, this hotel-and-time-share hybrid, has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere with spacious one- to three-bedroom villas and more than a dozen giant penthouses. The villas are more like sleek apartments with full kitchens, Jacuzzi tubs, and king beds with hypoallergenic sheets and intricately carved headboards. White and black decor, spacious balconies, pullout sofas, and top-of-the-line appliances are a nice touch. A salon, pool, fitness center, and full spa facility round out the perks.
