THE most beautiful place I have ever stayed, set on a hill leading down to a private beach each room is stunning and differently decorated. We stayed in the Bali room, open on two sides to nature with amazing views of the sea and mountains, rain shower and canopy bed. The whole complex has been carefully laid out and thought... More

We had a family reunion and birthday party over 3 nights. The place was beautiful, the food and staff met our every need. Great views, rooms, and sunrises to die for. We saw manta rays jumping and had some great snorkeling. I can't wait to return.

Villa del Faro is magical. Tucked off at the end of a very long, very bumpy dirt road we really had no idea what to expect. But if the road to hell is paved with good intentions, the road to heaven is paved with cows eating garbage and steaming piles of donkey crap. That's not entirely fair, in the hour... More

It is truly "off the grid." Two days spent in the beach accommodation where we never saw another person or a footprint on the beach -- expect ours. The last two days were spent in the Baja -- almost like staying in a tree house. We woke each morning to birds and desert breeze. Beautiful gardens, wonderful hospitality, great food... More

My husband and I lived in the Stone Cottage with the pounding surf as our life song for 9 days. We had absolutely everything we needed right there, including coffee and drinking water. Waking up to watch the glowing sun rise out of the Sea of Cortez and going to sleep playing wack-a-mole with the crabs kept us blissfully happy.... More

At the end of a long, dusty drive you'll find this brilliant gem - like a tall drink of water in the desert. The friends who've been running this eco-lodge together for some two-dozen years welcome you like you're one of their own. The grounds are filled with mature palms, succulents, and flowering plants. Hummingbirds, Orioles, and wrens share the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"Exquisitely off the grid" An elegant eco-hotel, Villa del Faro is a unique oasis nestled on a deserted beach. The Villa was created with the integrity of the surrounding desert in mind. We offer solitude instead of shops, safe swimming beaches, great books, gourmet food, snorkeling, surfing, and just pure beauty! One hour north of the Los Cabos Airport, but a world away in seclusion and serenity. Eight separate Casitas. Breakfast included. ... more   less
