“This is not just a hotel..Capella Pedregal is a total experience and it is all good..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2011

We booked an oceanfront vista room for a five night stay In March and from arrival to departure really was amazed at the beauty of the property, the exceptional service by all staff, and the unique location (through the tunnel) to Cabo San Lucas.
~Room. This was clearly not the least expensive room but its major advantage was location on the top floor so that filtered sun was on the terrace most of the day. Also the views were spectacular. The infinity pool was nice and if you don't like the temperature you can request it to be warmer which we did and it was perfect. The room itself is nice and almost half is taken up with the elaborate bath area. The best part though was the terrace...morning and night always a beautiful view. I really think any of the rooms would be fine even the minimum rate. Some might not have alot of privacy on the terrace. The Estrella suites on the corners seemed great for families or two couples and had immense terrace space.
~Service. I think the staff was one of the best trained I have ever encountered at any hotel. Our PA Germaine was very helpful in advance of our arrival and during our stay. There simply is nothing that they will not do to make your stay special. I never encountered any staff while walking around that did not smile and greet me inquiring how my day was going. You can take a golf cart to the entrance from where it is an easy walk to town and we never waited more than a couple minutes in either direction.
~Grounds and Pool. The hotel and grounds are maintained with exceptional care and I never even saw any sand that had not been racked perfectly. Walking around is so enjoyable and the vistas and vegetation are so beautiful...it is very exotic in typical desert motif. The main pool is kept at a very nice temperature and we enjoyed that every day. I would say at full occupancy the pool area seemed crowded...that is the chairs and it was difficult to find one. Not sure what they can do on that as most people do prefer the pool to the beach. No matter where you are ,they are there very promptly with ice water and Evian spray bottle. The bar seemed quite busy but we just prefer water when in the sun so can't speak to the drinks.
~Restaurants. Don Manuels is where we had breakfast every morning. Excellent buffet and as per the Capella service...they were there to carry your plates to the table, fold the napkin, pull the chair etc. If you like breakfast I strongly encourage you to choose a package that includes the breakfast as it is about $25.00 per person. The buffet had everything imaginable and quality of food very good. We ate in El Faralito our first night. It is a stunning setting and the speciality is fresh seafood. While good I would not rate my sea bass the best I have ever had but the experience was a good one all in all. In town recommendations would include DOC for Italian (you do get tired of seafood after awhile)...cute authentic place in quiet area of town by the square. Popular so have your PA make a reservation. Many people like La Dulce for Italian but we preferred DOC. Mocambo for seafood...not much These are all an easy walk from the Capella.
~Booking. We booked directly with Capella Res. and Lizeth was very helpful. I would recommend a package at least including breakfast and transfer (private in an Escalade) and if you book many months in advance check closer to arrival for better rates and package and they will change the booking to reflect the best rate. I did this and reduced our rate.
~Spa and Julien Farel Salon. I had two massages with Edith (thank you previous TA reviewer for recommending her) who was excellent. The spa is so peaceful and it was a very relaxing and enjoyable time. If you go early or after you can use the private pool and sunning area with the waterfall. We also visited the Julien Farel salon. Aidee is a very talented (trained by Julien of NYC) hair stylist who gave my daughter a beautiful haircut. The shops both in the spa and beside it are full of unique and beautiful objects..be sure to check them out.
~Summary. An elegant yet casual hotel with service to match. Probably more an adult oriented hotel but also very family friendly. We saw all ages there. Cabo has such beautiful weather and that ,combined with the Capella experience, make this a perfect holiday choice.

My husband and went on a vacation 3/12-3/18 to Los Cabos. We decided to go with this hotel based on the reviews that we have seen. This is a much more expensive cost that we usually can afford but decided to sepnd the extra and just make it a good experience. The hotel is like other reviewers say. Stunning and well maintened with great location. The limited amount of rooms of 66 makes it more more private. Food offered is excellent. A bit on the pricy side but considering the view and set up is really not that crazy. Room is so wonderful that everytime we got in, we were amazed of how beautiful it is. Room had everything you need. Miss the daily snack of 2 beers & chips & salsa. It had all you need for toiletries.
We did not use the hotel transportation from the airport and used Gray line offered by Orbitz. Round trip at $39PP. They were very good and on time. Hotel is a walking distance to the marina and to town. We have great food at Maria corona (mexican food) and at Dolce (Italian).
The area felt very safe. We walked all over at different time of day and night and never felt nervous or unsafe. The beach is very nice although you can not swim in the ocean. Our room had infiniti pool. It was a bit cold to use it but was nice to have it. The only thing that we would recommend, is that hotel asks the guests not to hold chairs by the pools if they are not going to use them in an hour of so. People would put magazine on chairs and leave for most of the day.. Not there are shortage of chairs but some of the best in location were reserved for no reason. It is not the hotel's fault, but rather some people don't have manners.

We have just returned from the most wonderful 5 days at the Capella Pedregal, Carbo San Lucas, Mexico.
Often an Internet description or brochure exaggerates the quality but this hotel could not be fully appreciated unless one is able to experience this unbelievable pleasure. The initial contact, by phone, to welcome us in advance, checking on our needs, requirements and offering services was a surprise but it was followed by exceptional caring service. We were met at the airport, transported to the hotel and welcomed at a spectacular open air lobby by a personal assistant. The views are superb, as one looks across the ocean, the serenity being dotted with whales, blowing and playing in front of the hotel. The hotel room was an ocean view, with a private heated plunge pool,a little cooler than we expected, but on a hot day, very welcome. The detail and attention to all aspects result in a room/lounge which is hard to leave. A switch and the fireplace lights in the evening, while the staff serve Mexican snacks and beer in your room.
The housekeeping refresh the room a few times a day with snacks, sweets, coffee machine requirements and bathroom tidying.
The restaurants are excellent with a wonderful selection from more casual pool bar meals, or very unique open air seafood buffet. The breakfasts were a Mexican experience with the chef cooking personally for you and the general selection and fruits wonderful. We did not expect such very fresh berries and fruits in a desert environment.
The hotel grounds are immaculate and the pools excellent with service continually offered.
The overall impression in one of gracious caring staff in a relaxing but extremely efficient environment with the highest standards.
A short walk through a spectacular tunnel leads to the village, marina and adjoining beaches.
Thank you to all who made our stay so very special.
We were transported back to the airport, with wonderful memories and hoping to return one day.

From the moment you drive through the tunnel, you are transported to another world!

We stayed in a 4 bedroom residence with our 2 small children and both sets of in-laws. The place was so spacious that we never felt like we were tripping over each other. The plunge pools were an amazing touch, although we spent most of the time in the main pools. The "kids" pool was great in that it had a gradual slope into the water, but was still beautiful.

We cooked most of our meals in the suite, and our Major Domo Lenore made fabulous breakfasts, guacamole and salsa for us too. We dined at Don Mauels, which was delicious. Our waiter was very helpful to advise us on experiencing a true Mexican Elegant Feast.

The service everywhere at the resort is outstanding! We will be going back again, for sure!

Was at CAPELLA with my family and 3 other families , we had a fantastic time. What I love about Capella is that even when the hotel is full the place seems like your own. Our kids love the pool and the service is 5 star. I like the fact that town is 10 min walk away but once thru this magnificent tunnel you are on the CAPELLA "Bubble" ... Place is fantastic for families and or a quiet weekend/week vacation way from the family.... best of both worlds

CONS: not a swimming beach, SPA is extremely expensive and food and drink can/will add up $$$. $10 margaritas seems crazy..... however good.

PROS: Location, Quality of property, food quality, family friendly, excellent staff, did I mention location.

We have been going to Cabo for over 15 years. Capella is truly the most unique resort around. There is no other resort in all of the area with such a gorgeous setting, close to town and first class service. Upon entering via the tunnel you are transformed to a special place. The whole resort is built into a side of the mountain. The grounds are impeccable and represent the Baja. There is a gorgeous beach to walk each morning or evening and no venders to bother. The workout facility has the best machines and one can work out while looking out over the ocean, looking for whales. The spa is like none other and the restaurants offer fabulous food. I can't imagine a better place to work and this feeling is relayed through the staff. They all seem to love their jobs and enjoy working for the guests. We have had many friends visit us at Capella and each and everyone is totally blown away! One can escape reality and stay at Capella or you can walk to town and enjoy the life of Cabo. It just doesn't get any better.

We researched many Cabo resorts before selecting Capella for our vacation. Every facet of this resort raises the bar on what other 5 Star resorts should seek to achieve. The quality of the entire staff and quality of service is far above anything we've experienced in all of our travels. The resort was built on the side of a mountain with the entrance through a tunnel which opens up to the lobby of the resort. During the day the scenery is bountiful and beautiful. The nights yield to lit torches and candles throughout the property which create a very unique, romantic and charming ambience. The "Personal Assistant" group, commonly known in other hotels as Concierge, provided immediate, friendly and top quality service. Great attention to every detail. The food is not only above excellent, the preparations are interesting, the menus appeal to any taste preference and the entire staff at all restaurants seeks to cater to any food allergies, fussy eaters and does this with a smile. We enjoyed the mid-morning fresh fruit the daily Marguerita in the early afternoon and the chocolate covered treat-of-the-day provided to guests at the pool.

We enjoyed the resort providing a delivery of salsa, guacamole, chips and beer to our room every afternoon, providing guests with unlimited water, a very well equipped physical fitness center which provided water and fresh juice, a very enthusiastic gift shop group and a General Manager who is frequently visiting with guests. Do not miss a dinner at El Farallon. The setting is unique, overlooks the ocean, very romantic setting and the live music on Friday night was close to a Gipsy Kings concert!

The hotel suites are very well appointed, clean, and ours had a plunge pool on the terrace. The view of the pacific ocean was filled with migrating whales, dolphins and we even saw a family of seals our final morning at Capella. Outstanding care of the public areas, including sculptured raking of the sand surrounding the cactus and other succulent plants.

Compared to other Cabo 5 star resorts, Capella is in the most central location. It is walking distance to the marina, the shopping area, many of the Cabo restaurants yet the resort is a totally private, gated compound.

One of the many outstanding qualities of this resort is their obvious dedication to providing top quality service and quality of relaxation to the guests.
