“A little slice of Heaven”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

I don't know if I will ever afford to come back to Capella but I'm so glad we have memories of this beautiful hotel. Everything is perfect - from the beautiful 4 bedroom villa we stayed in with friends, to the beautiful infinity pool, the daily cornitas and guacamole service, to the pristine and quiet beach. The location is the best in Cabo. It's so nice to be able to walk to town and to restaurants there. No need for expensive taxi's. This is the perfect relaxing holiday to take with just couples, friends, or even family. I hope to see you again one day, Capella!!

Top notch quality hotel from the moment you drive through the tunnel. It opens to the most spectacular view of the ocean. The service is of the highest quality and the rooms with the dipping pool are over the top. With town minutes away, you don't need a car.

Best spa I've ever been to!!

I just got back from Capella Pedregal and I am already planning a return trip. It was private, beautiful and everything everyone says it is. I love that we could walk into town for some cheap local food and I loved that we could lounge by the pool all day without too much of a crowd. My favorite things were: green juice offered, the spa, el farallon restaurant was magical (make reservations in advance if you can) That said, I noticed a few reviewers saying it is too pricey at Capella. I will say, I am from NYC so I tend not to get sticker shock often, Capella is pricey yes. But you get what you pay for. I have stayed at other 5 star places in Cabo (One and Only) and that is equally as good, just different and not near town. Prices fluctuate throughout the year so if it matters to you, compare the 5 star places and go to the one that offers the best deal. You cant go wrong with Capella though... very special place.

Room Tip: Stay near El Farallon restaurant for unobstructed views

My name is Pedro Romero, and i just needed to express myself again for the third time through trip advisor how much me and my lady love this place we call heaven on earth. We have loved it so much that we have came to this hotel three times already, and let me tell you, its not going to be our last time.
I would not know where to start or where to end when it comes to expressing my feelings, thoughts and memories about capella pedregal. I personally feel that as soon as you approach "the tunnel" that is when you start feeling it in youre bones that youre about to be introduced to the most amaizing hotel in all cabo san lucas.
The first thing that happens after you get passed the tunnel is you getting hipnotized with the beauty that youre eyes concieve as youre being welcomed to heaven on earth. Youre speachless due to all the beauty that surrounds you; and before you know it, youre girlfriend is asking you to please breath.
You get greated with a deliscious drink and then taken to youre beautiful room where youre personel plunge pool is waiting for you!!!
Before i continue i need to say that this place is just not known for its beauty and materialism, but for its quality lovable staff that i now consider my good friends. when ever you need help, some one is always there to assist you, if you have a question or concern, you better believe no one there will hesitate to help you right there and then.
The mornings are special to us because we get to have breakfast at the most delicious place ever, (Don Manuel's) this place and their breakfast kicks butt!!!!!!!!! from there you walk up to their beach beads next to the main pool and and just relax on one of them while youre delicious breakfast settles in. Once that happens, theres nothing like jumping in the pool, have a few refreshing drinks while you meet new people from all over the world.
Ofcourse how can i forget they're world known massages, these massages will make you feel fifteen years younger by the time theyre done with you, "a must do"
We would love to finish off our evenings either having appetizers outside Don Mauel's while listening to live soft music or going to they're number one restaurant in capella pedregal, "El Farallon" this restaurant is enbedded on a mountain right next to the ocean!!!!! yes you heard me right..... youre enjoying fresh ocean food while the waves are hitting the side of the mountain that youre sitting on, just absolutely breath taking!!!!
One thing is reading reviews, and another is expiriencing it, so i encourage everybody that has just read my thoughts and love that i have for this hotel and ALL their employees to stop what youre doing and start making plans to come to Capella Pedregal and meet their amaizing staff and to prepare your self to be treated like a king and queen.

Room Tip: every room there has its privacy, comfort, and loving feeling. some just bigger then others, depend...

Ok. Cabo San Lucas has become pricy, I get it. There are several superlative resorts - Las Ventanas, Palmilla, Esperanza - that have raised the bar to a very high level and Capella is positioned to be in this group. If there is a problem with the overall concept of ultra pricy resorts in Cabo, it's not that these resorts are not great. They are.

The conundrum about Cabo and San Jose is that the atmosphere of the surrounding communities, while quaint, fun and high energy, defies imagining how many businesses justify the kind of price gauging that occurs, not just in the hotels.... That being said, we still love going to Cabo.

My wife and I have stayed at Las Ventanas several times and Palmilla several times. These resorts are fabulous and pricy. But the service level is so high that frankly, THEY ARE WORTH IT. The staff is impeccable with its attendance to every need. You walk into the pool area or the beach and if there is no chair, THEY GO GET ONE and make sure you are situated to enjoy your day. By the end of a stay at either of these resorts, you can only wonder at the training that goes into such perfection.

This March, we decided to try Capella and booked through American Express. The agent said it is currently their top rated resort in Cabo. It's brand new and the location is unique in that it sits very near the town of Cabo San Lucas on the ocean side of the peninsula. You're going to see many great reviews for this property. I agree that the room product is great ($1,200 per night) and the views are great. We saw whales every day. What is not so great is that this place is so overpriced in so many ways that by the end, I frankly had to say...NOT WORTH IT. Obviously, I thought the room rate was ok. But here are some examples: Chap stick $20. Lobster at the fine dining restaurant $75 per pound. Cocktails $14-$16. Beer $9. Bottled water at breakfast $10. By the time we left dinner with no bottle of wine (the wine list sucks) $340. Each day at the pool with a small lunch, plus minus $300. All F&B charges had an 18% gratuity built in - which is ok since I usually tip more (and I did).

Some of the insults to injury? The service was just ok. The experience around the pool and beach just ok. The pool was so crowded that guests were saving chairs starting at 9:00 am and staff could not figure out how to make something happen for you if you showed up later. Fend for yourself appears to be the rule, which is fine most places, but NOT when you're paying that kind of money. Sitting on the beach, I found we needed to go GET a staff person for service.

More? We tip well. Always leave extra on the chit and always leave at least $5.00 per day for the housekeeper. When they emailed me the final bill, I had to inquire what several charges were for. First, there is $184 per day that goes to the federal government (this is above the occupancy tax). Then, there is $172.50 per day that they call "service charge." This, they explained, is for "gratuities for all the staff that serviced us at the property." That's $700 in tips we thought we already paid...

So this trip was $8,300 for a four night stay at Capella Pedrigal (with no spa treatments!), plus airfare, dinners out in the city, airport transportation, etc. We have stayed at 5 star properties all over North America, Hawaii, Mexico and Europe and the truth is have never felt quite so taken advantage of.

Proceed at your own risk.

Dear Joseph B,
Thank you for taking the time to share your comments and your thoughts not only about Cabo but also about your experience at Capella Pedregal. I was pleased to see that you enjoyed your room, found the facilities and the setting to be great, however, I regret that all was not perfect with your visit, and have taken note of your comments and reviewed them with our team so that they we can affect those changes or improvements to ensure that these are not issues in the future. I can assure you that during the busy spring break period, we had all of our available poolside chaise lounges out by the pool, and while the Don Manuel’s Pool was frequently busy, there generally was space available at our Beach Club Pool which has its own full service staff. I do apologize for any lapses in service at the beach. I agree with you that this should not happen as the service and amenities at the beach should be at the same level as poolside.

I did want to comment on pricing and the additional taxes and service charges. The tax rate and the service charge that is applied to the room rate is fully disclosed at the time of booking and our hotel confirmations indicate the total amount to be paid including the tax and the service charge. We do this in an effort to ensure that the guest is fully aware of the charges at the time of booking and prior to arrival. I note that you booked through American Express, who has this full information as well, so I am dependent on them to fully relay the tax and service information to you as we do not usually have direct contact with our guests booked by American Express prior to their arrival.

Regarding food and beverage, our menus feature a wide variety of imported and national beers priced in the $6-$6.50 range as well as some specialty Mexican crafted beers that come from of the small microbreweries in Mexico, priced in the $9 range. Cocktail pricing varies depending on the type of drink and alcohol selected. The $14-$16 cocktails that you cite in your comments are on the high end of our offerings and are for the specialty crafted cocktails that utilize special small batch liquors and a variety of freshly squeezed juices, house made bitters or syrups, or perhaps were one of barrel aged cocktails. This pricing is in line with many of the other resorts in our area, including those that you have cited in your comments. There is an additional 16% sales tax and 15% service charge added to the pricing and this is noted on all of our menus as well as clearly noted on the guest check when presented to your for signature.

I apologize for the length of my response, however, I did want to take the opportunity to point out that we do have a variety of options in our food and beverage program, and that there are some things, such as the local tax rate that are beyond our control. We will most certainly address those areas that you have highlighted where we can do better, and I sincerely hope that we will once again be able to welcome you back to Capella Pedregal so that you can fully experience the type of service and attention for which we strive to provide to all our guests.

Sincerely,

John Volponi

We spent almost a week at this fabulous resort. Driving up through the tunnel makes you feel like you are entering another world and it doesn’t take you long to realize that you really are. The staff is amazingly attentive right from when you step out of the shuttle and they hand you a welcome margarita. The welcoming front desk area frames a beautiful view. The entire resort is beautiful. The room and the plunge pool were fabulous. We really could see whales jumping from our patio. Guacamole, chips and coronas showed up in our room like very tasty magic every afternoon. The staff at the adult-only infinity pool was great. They (Omar and Fernando) kept us comfortable and well supplied with plenty of food and drinks. They took great care of us.
Mariel, the personal assistant, was in contact with us weeks ahead of time to help us plan our vacation. She made great suggestions for excursions and was very welcoming. Her help was invaluable in making this a memorable vacation, especially since I proposed while there. She helped me pull off a great night. If you are also planning a proposal, or just a romantic evening with the one you love, I strongly recommend a private dinner on the beach. Pedro was our waiter. He was attentive and sweet. We felt like royalty for the evening.
The food was wonderful. My favorite meal was actually Huevos Racheros on the beach with a margarita. It was noon at home, even if it was just 9am in Cabo. LOL. Our first full day we spent in chaise lounges on the beach. It made us feel like we were on a private beach. The beach menu was wonderful. We didn’t have any bad meals from the list. Also, if you enjoy the capella margarita, ask for some chili lime chips. They are a perfect match for the margarita. I definitely need to figure out how to make those! We had a meal at el Farallon. The site was perfect and the ambiance lovely. Well worth a visit. However, I think the food was more flavorful at Don Manuel’s. Their seared sea bass with corn-vanilla pudding is not to be missed.
The spa was wonderful and relaxing. We both got 90 minute massages and enjoyed the amenities as well. I would recommend the hydrating mask with the massage. I wish I could be there for a month to try the treatments for each moon phase.
I am sure that I am forgetting to mention many wonderful things about Capella Pedegral. I do, however, suggest that you check it out for yourself. We had an amazing stay.

This place was absolutely fantastic in every way. The staff is incredibly nice and welcoming. They make you feel like royalty. My husband and I stayed in a private suite which was phenomenal and wildly romantic. We loved every moment and can't say enough. One of my favorite parts was the breakfast. We asked for a table set apart so we could enjoy the serenity of the ocean view. We weren't sure if we would order a la carte or go for the buffet. I went inside to check out the buffet and found it delightful. I went back to the table and asked my husband to do a walk through, as well. With a giant smile on my face, I told him, "You have to see this". The breakfast buffet is as delicious as it is beautiful. We especially loved our service and time with Marilyn and Luis. Wonderful people, wonderful place. Thank you, Capella Pedregal, for the beautiful memories!
