“The Best of the Baja”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Just returned from a repeat trip to Esperanza in Cabo, Mexico, with the entire family (all the children and grandchildren). As previously, a wonderful experience with absolutely no "glitches" or downsides. Although obviously not inexpensive, did not feel at any point that the charges were not well worth it. Attentive staff to the point of complete pampering. Excellent restaurants, great concierge staff. Will obviously return again in spite of the long trip from the East Coast.

Room Tip: The villas are wonderful!

My wife and I meet my cousin and his wife here for a get away. We had a great time and the staff was over the top helpful.The rooms were very nice and the food was great. I have been all over the Carribean and Mexico. This resort is one of the nicest resorts I have been too. I just went back to Cobo for xmas with the wife and kids for xmas and new yrs. but stayed in a different hotel because there is not a lot for the kids at Esperanza. While the resort was very nice i cant wait till July to go back to Esperanza to meet my cousine, on our now, annual Esperanza trip.Thanks to Mark at Esperanza,

Surpassed what I expected. The views are tremendous and the assortment of pools all have attached restaurants or some type of food option. You can watch wales cavort in the ocean from several of the pools while you bake under the sun (or a huge umbrella carefully managed by attentive staff members. Props to Edgar by the hotel pool for his amazing service). Free exercise classes are offered during the day which can be quite intense. Do the "Beach Boot Camp" with Modu, who is possibly the most in-shape human being we have ever seen, but who won't push you to exhaustion. The classes will make you feel less guilty as you eat tons of great quality, fresh Mexican dishes and drink from an extensive collection of tequilla. Capped it off with a steam every day in the spa (which is free to use). Only real criticism was partaking in their Mexican fiesta night dinner which we thought was overpriced (though it was an all you can eat buffet). Just back in NY and miss Esperanza already.

Greetings from Sunny Los Cabos!

It is wonderful to hear that our team at Esperanza surpassed your expectations.
December is the perfect time of the year to see families of whales showing off right in front of Esperanza!

Yes, Modu's classes are awesome! Our complementary TRX, boot camp, yoga, and other classes are a perfect way to stay healthy or unwind during your visit.

I'm glad you enjoyed our Mexicansimo, which also includes fireworks and mariachi within this theme night.

I hope you stay warm in New York. We look forward to your next visit to Los Cabos!

Yours Sincerely,

Marc Rodriguez

We stayed at Esperanza in Cabo for our recent honeymoon in August, and the entire vacation was incredible! Everything, from just lounging by the pool, to our private, candlelight dinner on the beach, was simply amazing! I have been to the other high-end resorts in Cabo, and in my opinion, Esperanza is the best. We enjoyed it so much, we just went back a week ago! (early December). The hotel amenities, rooms, restaurants, room service, grounds, pools, spa, etc. are outstanding, and everyone that works at Esperanza goes out of their way to make sure the hotel guests are happy and well taken care of! I highly recommend Auberge Esperanza to anyone thinking of visiting Cabo!

Congratulations on your recent wedding! Esperanza is certainly the perfect place to spend a relaxing and romantic honeymoon.
I'm delighted that you returned again for your December fix! You can't beat Cabo weather this time of year. Sunny and 70 degree weather! Perfect for lounging by the pool or beach or spending time at our outdoor spa!

The entire Esperanza team looks forward to seeing you both on your next visit!

We had a wonderful stay at the Auberge Residences which is on the Esperenza property but not part of the Esperenza hotel. While Auberge guests have access to all the amenities of the hotel guests (yoga classes, trx classes, etc. - free of charge), we were rewarded with a 4 bedroom, 3500 square foot single level condo with spectacular views and the comforts of a Ritz Carlton or a Four Seasons hotel (bedding, appliances and interior design are first rate). Three bedroom, 3000 sq foot residences start at $675 per night or $4725 per week. So if you compare that with a hotel "room" at the Esperanza, you can figure out where you get the better value. You can find out more info at puntaballenaluxury.com. I would highly recommend that you rent a car in Cabo.

We went there with another two families last year summer. Been meaning to post but never got around it. When you walk up to the hotel the first view is breathtaking. The hotel rests on a cliff and the views are of sea of cortez and the pacific ocean. You have a beautiful view of El Arco from the dining area.

The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The mattress is on the softer side which we didnt care for but the other couples with us loved it. We prefer a firmer mattress.

The hotel is EP plan hotel. Dinning is pretty steep by any standards. Food is good and I would say if you are looking at staying here you would expect to pay 300/meal. All in all we loved it. I would return..

Room Tip: Any of the suites are perfect.. Higher you are the better view you have of the ocean. Lower suites h...

3 nights in a villa with wall to wall sliding doors opening to deck and private hot tub. Bed and settee were very comfortable. Grounds are immaculate; pool and beach nice and private. Restaurants were varied, all very comfortable, with good food and views. We did yoga each morning with Blanca, then had a great, full (un-yogalike) breakfast following. The beach was not a great swimming beach - a little rocky, but swimmable and pretty, and private. Spa was first class. The staff was very attentive, very courteous, and very plentiful. Made us feel special - and celebrated my wife's birthday in a memorable way. Resort is 10 minutes from downtown Cabo, perfectly apart from the crowds, but easy to get to them.
