Situated on a bluff overlooking the Sea of Cortez, Villa Del Faro is a beautiful domain consisting of half a dozen residences placed within subtly landscaped gardens, a fantastic pool straight out of the movies and little paths leading from one to the other. Hummingbirds whirr around, landing on the big flowers that seem to grow everywhere. We were incredibly... More

Villa Del Faro is a fabulous place to stay if you want to truly get away from the hum-drum of life. We spent evenings watching whales escorting their babies out at sea whilst the sun went down. We were lucky enough to stay when no one else was booked in. This meant we had the whole place to ourselves and... More

We had a wonderful week at VdF w/ family. The surroundings are absolutely gorgeous, the beach is glorious, and everything is comfortable. The Villa is for people who want to swim/snorkel/surf (in season), walk on the beach or in desert, lie by the pool, read, and be quiet. But as a number of people have noted, this is not a... More

My husband and I and our two young children just spent spring break at the beautiful Villa del Faro just north of San Jose del Cabo on the Baja peninsula. It's a true desert oasis nestled amongst the sagebrush and saguaro. The resort is gorgeous and well laid out so that guests (staying in casitas) feel safe and connected, yet... More

Once in a blue moon you are lucky enough to have discovered the perfect gem of a getaway...so good you are reluctant to write a review in fear everyone else will discover it too. Not only is this place exquisitely beautiful in terms of it's natural surroundings and traditional mexican art and architecture, but the food was delicious and the... More

After arriving on the East Cape with my girlfriend, daughter and niece we simply melted into the surrounds at Villa del Faro. So peaceful, relaxing and beautiful. This particular area of the Baja peninsula is like a diamond in the ruff compared to the harsh landscape we normally associate with La Baja. The gardens are lush with many unusual species... More

Villa del Faro is an oasis. From the stunning beach location, to the authentic and generous hospitality, this was an extraordinary stay. I spent three glorious nights in the stone cottage, situated right on the beach, and it fulfilled all of my desires for a rustic, simple retreat. Bountiful daily mexican breakfasts balanced my simple dinners that I cooked on... More

I whisked my husband here for his annual surprise birthday trip at the end of January at the advice of friends of ours who are long-time repeat customers (maybe even the first guests!). After a quick stop at the supermarket and a gorgeous drive over the hills, we arrived at the Garden of Eden. We actually didn't see much of... More

Villa Del Faro is simply amazing. My wife and I visited after a 7 day small boat cruise in the Sea of Cortez and this was just what we were looking for. The location is stunning, just above a beautiful white sand beach which stretches for miles with hardly anyone around. The grounds are amazing with tiny humming birds flitting... More

I recently visited the wonderful Villa Del Faro with my brothers for a long weekend. We were looking for something a little off the beaten track and quiet, and it couldn't have been better. First the hotel: Stunning gardens and grounds, well kept, private and clean rooms, excellent cook (and bartender!). I always felt like I was well taken care... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
“Exquisitely off the grid” An elegant eco-hotel, Villa del Faro is a unique oasis nestled on a deserted beach. The Villa was created as a labor of love by artisans and architects. We offer solitude instead of shops, safe swimming beaches, great books, gourmet food, snorkeling, surfing, and just pure beauty! One hour north of the Los Cabos Airport, but a world away in seclusion and serenity. Five separate Casitas. Breakfast included. ... more   less
