“Very Special Christmas in Cabo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

I have to admit...I didn't want to spend my Christmas in Cabo away from the white Christmas possibilities at home in NorthEast Pennsylvania. BUT..what an amazing time we had at Capella!! Besides the incredible views, the delicious drinks, the fresh and succulent meals, the comfortable rooms...the staff at Capella was out of this world. Every single person we dealt with at the resort was more than pleasant, spoke very good english, and accomodated every request we had without pause - especially Daniela, Geraldo, Fernando, Ozwaldo and Eduardo -- Amazing experience! Thank you from suite 30!

We stayed here in October which is fishing season. We missed our flight and arrived in the middle of the night, even then, as soon as you pulled in the views were amazing. We were greeted at the gate and someone was already waiting for us at the curbside to check-in. We were walked to our room and the room itself was absolutely beautiful. They payed attention to every detail possible when they put it together. The room and outside terrace were fairly large which was great. The balcony was a very good size and I believe each room has it’s own private pool and a small terrace in the balcony . We had amazing views of the ocean. The grounds were exceptional. Every corner of this hotel was breathtaking. If you get the opportunity you must have dinner on the beach and enjoy the sunset it is very romantic. They have a very nice turndown with lots of candles and red roses. We went fishing and luckily caught blue stripped marlins, we brought it back to the hotel and they cooked it three different ways and they all tasted great. The pool is a must. They have an infinity pool with a swim up bar and all of their drinks were great. I highly recommend you try the jalapeño margarita. It was the first time we had it and it was great.

I never write reviews on this site, but am for Cabo because the experiences were outstanding. This is a beautiful hotel with a great location near central Cabo San Lucas. Our room was amazing with a view of the Ocean, a plunge pool, and an enormous bathroom area. The patio and pool were ideal for morning and evening lounging and the daily guacamole service was a nice touch. The hotel had a younger clientele than its competitors (which we also stayed at) and is smaller than those hotels. Despite the smaller size, the hotel at times lacked the level of ridiculous service than the One and Only or the Rosewood property, but still had exceptional staff who were always helpful and attentive. The hotel was also more relaxed and had better selections of local beers, tequilas and much better restaurants than those properties. This is an awesome hotel, worth the cost and ideal if looking for an ultra luxury property near the Arch, scuba and Cabo.

Room Tip: Request an ocean front suite.

Capella is a top hotel with the most attentive staff, delicious restaurants, and absolutely beautiful accommodations. My husband and I went for 4 days and everything was perfect. There was no reason to ever leave the property because we were so happy and relaxed. From the most superb dining to the amazing views to the fun couples we met, we were in heaven. The spa was also extraordinary. I give it my highest recommendation.

This was a great experience. The highlight the quality of the food and their attention to detail. The room although ours was their basic was stunning. Be aware because of the hill there are steps that are unavoidable. The pool was great and the staff exceptional. If at all possible l will revisit this hotel. Some helpful advise the treadmills in the gym were always busy, book early for the spa, make reservations for dinner in the restaurants. The breakfast was the freshest ingredients and they will cook anything you want that l have experienced

While our restaurants are open to the public, we do give priority to our hotel guests.

We've experienced great service & amenities at other resorts in the 15 years vacationing in Cabo... Capella Pedregal outshines them all! From the time you are welcomed at Capella to the departure service at the airport. The hotel provides amenities that you didn't expect that increases the value of the overall stay and the service is pure luxury! It was an amazing experience, unforgettable and we can't wait to return to experience it again! Cabo is not complete without staying a Capella Pedregal!

Room Tip: Every room has a view and beautiful inside and out!

We were lucky enough to stay at the Capella Pedregal for 5 days over Thanksgiving. This was our second visit to Cabo (the first time we stayed at the Palmilla) and I was a bit apprehensive before the trip because I had read several reviews about how the hotel isn't family friendly. I knew I had to write a review because this could not be further from the truth. The Capella is a fantastic combination of 5-star luxury and a family resort. My husband and I were traveling with our 2 year old daughter, and she had the time of her life. The kids' pool at the hotel is one of the best kids' pools I have ever been to at a hotel, and the family pool is wonderful for toddlers as it has a very large shelf where toddlers/babies can sit and play -- and it is footsteps away from the beach so you can easily do the back-and-forth transition that kids seem to demand. The staff was amazing (smoothies and cocktails by the pool could not be beat) and really went out of their way to make sure we had a perfect stay. Beach toys? Check. Kids' club? Check. The staff at the kids' club even offered to take our daughter for a few hours or arts and crafts even though she was under the age limit. From an adult's perspective, I had a heavenly afternoon at the spa, and my husband and I loved our private pool and the dinners at the hotel. Breakfast should also not be missed.

We are already planning on returning next year and our daughter keeps asking to "go to Mexico tomorrow."
