“A beautiful resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Our week at this resort was wonderful. The views are spectacular, the room was spacious and very well appointed. This is a first class resort, so expect everything to be expensive. We had been warned of this so we were not surprised. The menu and bar prices are high and they add a service charge on top of every transaction. There is a spa and gym, the gym offers several classes but they do fill up so check into them early in your stay if you are interested.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room with a dipping pool but had visitors every day cleaning the pool and doin...

Our vacation at the Esperanza Resort in Cabo San Lucas was the most flawless luxury experience I’ve ever had. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. While we were checking in and distracted by the jaw dropping views, we were served refreshments, making the whole process seamless. We were then escorted to our casita. The casita was wonderfully equipped with every amenity you could want and the wi-fi was super- fast. They actually cleaned our room twice a day. We had dinner at the hotel the first evening with a table that faced the ocean. At this point, I felt like a king. Beautiful views of the ocean and iconic rock formations. The smell of the fresh ocean breeze just has a way of inducing relaxation. The food was fantastic. Not sure I've ever had such delicious food and I live in NYC. The interaction with the staff was pure pleasure on every encounter. Everyone was happy. One day we went to El Arco and did a jet-ski tour. It was really great but even greater to come back to our Jacuzzi on our personal deck at Esperanza. It was hard to leave our casita but when we did we made our way to their beautiful ocean view pool. It was so well managed and never too crowded. The snack bar service is outstanding as were the chips and guacamole. The four days we spent were like being in paradise and honestly, I never knew this type of place even existed. My advice to anyone who is thinking of going is to do it!!! It’s worth every penny. We booked on classictravel.com as they have Virtuoso rates that include extras we couldn’t get anywhere else online.

Like Spinal Tap's amp. Five green dots aren't nearly enough to do this place justice. We've stayed at five-star resorts in the past -- in Jamaica, Belize, Canada, and even just up the highway from Esperanza at another place in Cabo -- and they're almost always incredible and mind blowing. Well, Esperanza takes it a step further, which we didn't think was possible. The staff is by far the friendliest and most eager-to-please anywhere, and they seem to love working at the resort as much as the guests love staying there. The grounds are freakishly beautiful, the food is insanely delectable (especially the crazy gourmet vegan options, which Esperanza treats as art rather than an afterthought), the pools are Trumptastic, and the high-class gym/spa/yoga facility really hits the spot after a night of top-shelf tequila tasting (which we did at one of Esperanza's oceanfront bars -- the one appropriately named "El Bar").

A trip to Esperanza is unlike any other trip you will take. The setting combines a desert landscape with beautiful beaches. There are numerous pools overlooking the incredible beach. The setting is fabulous, but what really makes Esperanza stand out is the people. The staff are all genuinely kind and there for you at every turn. You will feel like part of the family by the time you leave.

One of the other main draws to Esperanza was the incredible dining options. Being vegan I so appreciated the vast array of foods offered at each restaurant and the caliber of cuisine was outstanding. Chef Cerda is truly talented and each plate that comes to your table will be a work of art. I almost cried when it was time to leave, because the trip was so spectacular.

There is no other hotel to stay at if you visit Cabo. We vacationed at Esperanza for a week and it was absolutely the best trip we have ever experienced in our lives.
Not only is the resort the most gorgeous place on the planet, but the staff is so friendly and accommodating, it's unbelievable. My boyfriend (now fiance- thanks to the ambiance of this romantic hotel!) is a surfer. His car would be waiting for him at 6:30 each morning, surfboard packed by the staff and cold bottled water in the car waiting for him. This is one tiny example of the thought, care and level of excellence that this hotel exudes. Chef Cerda and his team prepare dishes the way you want them, they accommodate special diets like gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan, and the food is incredible. We will go back every year!

Esperanza was the perfect honeymoon spot. Quiet, romantic, luxurious and stunning location on the ocean. Relaxing at the infinity pools overlooking their perfect rock-strewn beach was absolutely amazing. Breakfast was out of this world. Dnner at the Cocina Del Mar restaurant was exceptional. And they make it hard to leave the resort because of their flawless service and endless amenities. However, don't neglect heading to downtown Cabo for at least one night for equally amazing Mexican seafood (at more reasonable prices.)

Room Tip: Choose a room on the highest floor.
