Fodor's Review

One of the most exquisite resorts in Los Cabos, focused on privacy and impeccable service, and home to one of the best spas in the region, Esperanza is true luxury. The grounds are comprised of three areas––the resort (casita rooms, no children under 16), the residence (privately owned), and the villas (fractional time-shares open to families). All casitas are 950 square feet and have handcrafted Mexican-style furnishings, Frette linens, walk-in closets, and massive

bathrooms with dual-head showers and balcony-set Jacuzzis. Included in the rate are lovely touches like daily fruit, Wi-Fi, Nespresso coffee machines, stocked mini-bars, and sunrise yoga. Room service is ordered through personalized iPads, and you can watch the whales from telescopes or Nikon binoculars in every room. Villas take the luxe even further, as some have private pools and butler service. Californian and Mexican recipes get a Baja twist in atmospheric Cocina del Mar, and other property restaurants, while guests can be found relaxing at all hours at the chic alfresco "The Lounge" just above the pool. The spa takes treatments to a whole new level, with steam caves, and a waterfall, as well as visiting instructors, and a regular schedule of classes. Framed by a rocky cove, the resort's location makes the beach virtually private since it can't be accessed other than through the property itself.

3 Star Hotel with 5 Star Pricing

I believe the hotel may be undergoing financial problems. There attempts to steal our money were desperate, outraging and unrelaxing. The room was badly in need of repair, which nobody offered to do (AC broken, fan too noisy to run at night, broken shower head, speakers broken, TV broken). For $800 per night, unacceptable. They charged us for an extra night. Double charged us for meals we ordered. We had to ask the hotel for several charges

to substantiate them with proof of our signatures. We were charged for $2300 of incidentals unrelated to us. Others had the same experience. We did not have one meal that was served correctly. The pools were too cold to swim in. Apparently they instructed not to heat them. They collected top dollar from us, while desperately trying to cost save and steal our money. We left feeling extremely distrustful of this establishment. There was absolutely no value. Choose Palmilla or Las Ventanas.

Not Comparable to Las Ventanas

We visited Esperanza from Feb15toFeb17 2007, after staying on Feb 14 2007 at Las Ventanas al Paraiso. La Esperanza seems to have been built and run to compete with Las Ventanas al Paraiso. But Esperanza does not come close in service and details to Las Ventanas. Given that both places cost the same, it is not just to pay the same price for Esperanza, STAY A LAS VENTANAS IF YOU CAN, IT SO MUCH MORE WORTH IT!!
