It's all about comfort and privacy at this award-winning, hacienda-style hotel that caters to couples and travelers with a healthy lifestyle. Guest rooms have a view of the sea and the beautiful white-sand beach. A few steps above the main bedroom, guest quarters have bathrooms with whirlpool bathtubs. The list of complimentary perks is endless: luxury bath products, international phone calls, spa access, cooking classes, dance lessons, morning yoga, a personal nutrition expert, laundry service, a stocked minibar (top-shelf alcohol), and discounted greens fees, to name a few. At all the restaurants and bars, menus list healthy options and caloric intake, and the gym is well equipped. The Ultimate Golf Package includes a complimentary massage with a four-night stay. Golfers are well taken care of at this genteel property, as are, increasingly, wedding parties. The staff here is notable for its hospitality and attentiveness.
Traditional hacienda style accents meet contemporary comforts in the 50-boutique suites, with vintage teak furniture and regional arts and crafts sharing space with luxurious linens and modern amenities like Wi-Fi and plasma screen televisions.
Furnished terraces feature spectacular Sea of Cortés vistas.
Marble countertops, jacuzzi tubs, frosted glass shower doors and rain shower heads are among the highlights in the exquisitely appointed bathrooms.
Casa del Mar has its own branded bath soaps and shower gels.
The hacienda aesthetic is at its peak in the muy tradicional courtyard lobby, with a central stone fountain bounded by romantic candle lit lanterns, handcrafted tables and chairs, and colorful throw pillows.
The enormous, multi-level swimming pool is complemented by lounge chairs and umbrellas, a pool bar and patio restaurant, and an immaculately tended garden.
Swimming is generally safe from the beach, but it’s wise to check current conditions with hotel staff.
On-site spa Sueños del Mar (Dreams of the Sea) offers massages, wellness therapies, and beauty salon services, plus access to sauna, steam, and jacuzzi facilities.
Three signature treatments for golfers will get guests ready to hit the nearby links.

Walking is possible to neighboring resorts at Cabo Real, but to little else at this coastal resort set just off the Tourist Corridor highway. Public bus service is easily available to cape cities Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, but taxi service or rental cars are the preferred transportation options for regional explorations.
Chef Thierry Dufour’s Canto del Mar at nearby Marquis Los Cabos (1-mile drive along the Carretera Transpeninsular, at Km 21.5) is one of the few French restaurants in Los Cabos, and serves up four-course continental cuisine nightly. Another French chef, Fabrice Guisset, specializes instead in Mexican cuisine at El Restaurante, the simply named signature restaurant at next door luxury resort, Las Ventanas al Paraíso.
The Tequila and Ceviche Bar at nearby luxury resort Las Ventanas al Paraíso carries over 200 brands of tequila and artisanal mezcal, and has trained master tequiliers available to help visitors determine their own personal flavor profile.
