My husband and I came for a weekend getaway to Valle de Guadalupe and stayed a night at Endemico.
Conceptually this hotel is interesting, although I don't understand how the term "glamping" applies except dirt roads connect the "pods" (ultra modern cabins?) and you might get your feet dirty if you are walking in sandals. However, we did not walk much as we were equipped with walkie-talkies to summon their staff to pick us up in golf carts. Inside the "pods" it feels like an Apple store with their all white interiors and ultra modern decor. We love the interiors and design as it appeals to our aesthetic, however, it doesn't seem to "fit" in Valle de Guadelupe. Perhaps the owners foresee a boom in this area and I agree Valle de Guadalupe has much to offer that is overlooked by the LA crowd (I hope it stays that way for our selfish reasons as we very much love coming here for the wine, food, scenery and people).
The pool is the standout of this property. It reminds me of Palm Springs or Malibu with the decor and layout. The music selection is perfect. It is a great place to go at night with a glass of wine, or to have breakfast in the morning and then lounge in the sun.
We were spoiled by eating at the Corazon de Tierra, so after that, any restaurant would be a disappointment. Breakfast by the pool was great, but lunch/dinner is average and overpriced. I think that the hotel is still working out the kinks, but it has a lot of potential. The room rates are very reasonable. I'm happy we experienced it before being "discovered."
