“Absolutely terrific”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

We are just completing a week long stay at the CP (my wife and I have 3 children) and it was fantastic. We've stayed at numerous Four Season resorts and as outstanding as Four Seasons service was---the service at the CP was even better. Staff could not have been more attentive and helpful at all times.

The setting is spectacular and the rooms (we were in a 2 bedroom villa) with their private plunge pools were breathtaking.

I have never written a hotel review on Trip Advisor before but felt that I had to praise this outstanding hotel.

One of the world's best spas. I highly recommend Alicia, who combined three differtn techniques to provide one of the best massages I have ever had. This spa has it all and doesn't dissapoint, unlike some of the imitators you find at luxury resorts that charge too much and fall flat. Take several hours to absorb this place as it has much to offer. Have lunch by the private salt pool. Food is excellent.

Dear Guest -

Thank you so much for the comments. We will certainly pass them along to our wonderful ladies and gentleman at Auriga Spa. There is no doubt that a stay at Capella would not be the same without a spa treatment from our team. No better way to relax in the Baja.

All our best,

The Capella Management Team

My husband and I have travelled to some pretty romantic destinations, Paris being one of my favorites, but Capella was an experience we will never forget. From the first point of contact (emails from your personal assistant to ensure all your needs for arrival are met), to the flawless stay (friendly and happy staff at every turn), it's no wonder this place is getting such commendable reviews.
First off, it's located in Pedregal, which is so swanky and private. It's a quick walk (3 minutes) into the marina in Cabo San Lucas where you can find shopping, food, and tons of activities. It's the only 5 star hotel within walking distance to the port, but it's on the other side of a mountain that you feel like you are in a private resort. There's a gorgeous tunnel that links the hotel to the rest of the town and the hotel provides a golf cart that takes you to the edge of it all. No taxis needed when staying here. Big bonus.
Rooms are like everyone said…magnificent views, total comfort, and the infinity pool provides a heavenly oasis when you came back at the end of the day.
Service is like none that we've ever experienced. Culture is definitely not lacking, which added a special charm to the place. All the servers and pool boys are hilarious and go out of their way to make sure you are having a good time.
El Farallon is a must! Nestled along a cliff, you get a breath-taking view of the ocean as you dine on fresh seafood and live music. First time we had Parrot fish and white bass! Yum!
Don Manuel's breakfast is divine!! We ate there every morning! Their dinner is not as great as El Farallon's so I would probably go into town for some local dishes instead (which we never did, so don't know if it's any good, but it'll be much cheaper!).
We spent as much of our 4 day trip on the property as possible because we were so in love with the hotel, but did venture out into town to do some wave running (exciting!), sailing, and snorkeling. But I wouldn't have minded if we didn't leave that side of the mountain at all!
With the indescribable ambience, top-notch staff, and attention to fine detail, you can't help but fall in love at, and with, this place. My husband and I can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: Better views on higher floors. Lower units have building obscurities.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in November. The property makes dramatic use of the desert setting. The grounds and rooms are well kept. We ate at the breakfast buffet each morning. Any item you don't see, just request it and the staff is happy to oblige. The fitness facility is well located (oceanview) and provides enough equipment for a good workout. We also played tennis. The courts overlook the downtown marina and surrounding hills. The facilities were adequate for a game. We enjoyed fabulous massages in the spa. The spa is beautiful. I would highly recommend Betty for a good strong massage. We ventured off the property several times and came across some great local eateries. The hotel is located 5 minutes from town. We walked to Medano beach one night for dinner....some nice restaurants in that direction....I think it took us about 25min. Overall, I would highly recommend Capella for a romantic getaway with that special someone. As with anything in life, there will always be people complaining and nit picking. If you're stretching your budget to stay here, don't be shocked by $15 drinks. And, remember, you're not in Santa Barbara, you're in Mexico, so don't be judgmental of the sights when you're walking around. If you find yourself offended, then you probably shouldn't be there in the first place.

Room Tip: Request room on a higher floor.

This hotel was absolutely lovely. it is expesnive, but the service was impeccable and our 3rd floor room had a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean. The hotel provided binoculars so we could watch the whales off shore ... from our "dunk" pool at the end of our balcony. My wife spent some time in the spa and she said it was fabulous. On our last evening, we had dinner at their restaurant called "El Farallon" and it did not disappoint. All in all, we had a wonderful time!

Went on business with my husband and had Best Customer Service we've ever experienced. We are not particularly wealthy, and they knew that, but the entire staff is trained to treat everyone as if they are kings and queens. When you stay there, you are assigned a 'personal assistant', although anyone of the staff will help with anything, and I mean ANYTHING you need. I was in need of cough drops the first day I was there, and one of the personal assistants, Diana, offered to go into town and buy them at the Pharmacia for me. Beyond the staff, the rooms are emaculate and beautiful- all with an exceptional view, and the food is top notch. Bottom line, I will never enjoy another stay at any other resort/hotel because they spoiled us (as part of their regular service!!) so much. Instead of going on vacation every year, we will save our $ every few years so we can return here. Nowhere in the world is better. Thank you, Capella Pedregal!

Room Tip: All rooms have great view.
