Villa Santa Cruz is a spectacular Eight Room Boutique Beach Resort located right on the Pacific Ocean in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexico. Situated on 20 acres of secluded beachfront property, here you can escape the bustle of the daily grind and choose to be unscheduled. Wake up to the early light of a breathtaking sunrise, feel the sun’s rays warm your skin in the late afternoon, watch the sun set into the Pacific, and relish the slow fade from dusk to dark as the moon ascends over the mountains. Be present in the ebb and flow of the day and discover the natural rhythm of Baja. As a guest, you’ll have plenty of places to unwind and recharge, including the Villa’s Grand Saltwater Swimming Pool & Jacuzzi – newly remodeled and heated, – the spacious Roof Terrace with gas fire ring, hammocks at the Oceanfront Palapa, or the expanse of quiet beachfront just steps from your door. With a warm, casual atmosphere, upgraded amenities and gracious hospitality, Villa Santa Cruz is a high end destination for the modern beach traveler. Inside the main Villa, there are four cozy rooms, complete with old world Mexico charm, and four brand-new standalone Beach View Bungalows with sweeping views of the mangrove covered dunes, white sand beach and luxurious swimming pool.

We just got back from spending 4 days with the wonderful folks of Villas Santa Cruz. Paul, Marcos, and Azul and the rest of the staff were so welcoming and provided us with everything we needed in a beautiful setting. We stayed in the Luna bungalow and found it super comfortable and clean with a dream like view opening up directly to the ocean and sound of the surf and singing birds. Their attention to COVID exceeds the standards. We felt safe and taken care of throughout our stay. The pool is a sparkling salt water escape with multiple places to lie and lounge in and stay socially distant from fellow pool users. Every morning, a delicious breakfast is offered (complimentary). Following that, you can order from the lunch menu until 2pm. The menu offers a variety of small plates as well as larger items, all delicious, and all delivered to order, to the pool deck if one so desired. Wine, beer, cocktails are available throughout the day and are reasonably priced. The grounds are gorgeous. There are small walking paths that take you to the beach and to a large observation gazebo, where one can view the sun set over the pacific. Dazzling. Two other observations. It's best to have access to a car if you want to venture into town or explore the area. It's a bit isolated (part of the charm) so if you want to get out of the hotel, highly recommend renting a vehicle. The surf is not for swimming and is generally recognized as a more advanced surf break. Caution! 100% recommend and will come back!

Property's Favorite Review
Just stayed at Villa Santa Crus in Todos Santos. This boutique hotel is amazing. One of the few right on the beach. They have their own large palapa with a 2nd story to look out on the ocean for whales. Also a heated pool and jacuzzi with plenty of lounge chairs and beach towels Lots of wonderful small touches, like a gas fire pit on top of the main building, honor bar with a variety of drinks to choose from, a free margherita upon your arrival, coffee and tea delivered to your door each morning at 7am, etc. Also, right next door (walking distance through the sand dunes) looking out over the Pacific is a wonderful restaurant, The Green Room. Highly recommend dinner there.

Perfect escape! What a dreamy place Villa Santa Cruz is. The grounds are just amazing. Favorite thing is being able to walk right out the wooden gate on the property to the ocean. Jump in or walk for in the deep sand for miles. Enjoy the Sunsets and Sunrise up close from your room or the spectacular restaurant/bar on the property The Greenroom, BCS. VSC is a small intimate property. You'll feel like family in a minute. The travel adventure getting there sets the stage. Go here again and again. The morning coffee delivered to your doorstep will spoil you.

We stayed here in June, in one of the new bungalows. It was very comfortable. The breakfast and lunch we had daily was wonderful. It was very relaxing, They are taking a lot of precautions for COVID so we felt very comfortable. Beautiful grounds with lots of birds, jack rabbits, friendly cats - and always being attended to by grounds keepers. The beach is also very nice, the sunsets are amazing. Our only complaint would be that they are allowing people that are not guests to pay $50 (with a $25 food credit) to come and use the property. We paid approximately $400 a night to then have a family of 5 (including a young child) come and spend the almost the entire day in the pool. (some of them sitting/eating in the hot tub the entire time which warmed up the pool even more) I understand times are hard with COVID, but it really takes away from the exclusive experience of this special place,. It also does not sit well with us knowing we could have stayed some place much less expensive and still spend our day here for $50.

We are so glad that you enjoyed the new bungalows and appreciate all the care we are taking with Covid precautions and protocols! It is so important to us to hear that guests feel comfortable while they are on property - thank you so much for this feedback. With respect to the pool passes, it is standard practice in the area that hotels and resorts allow day use of the pool for a fee ($50 usd per person - we are one of the more expensive choices!). Of course, we carefully monitor our occupancy and do not allow pool passes when the hotel is nearing capacity - we do want the guest experience to feel uncrowded and private. But, when occupancy is low, day passes are welcome. Also, we are a family-friendly property and even the littlest guests are always warmly received! Thank you for sharing and we hope to host you again one day soon!

My husband and I booked Villa Santa Cruz for our wedding in January 2020, and it was absolutely magical. Jessica, Matt, and their team are delightful to work with and very organized. The buildings and grounds are breathtaking. Watching whales breach in the background during your wedding can't really be beat... Highly, highly recommend.
