“Esperanza Goes to 11”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Like Spinal Tap's amp. Five green dots aren't nearly enough to do this place justice. We've stayed at five-star resorts in the past -- in Jamaica, Belize, Canada, and even just up the highway from Esperanza at another place in Cabo -- and they're almost always incredible and mind blowing. Well, Esperanza takes it a step further, which we didn't think was possible. The staff is by far the friendliest and most eager-to-please anywhere, and they seem to love working at the resort as much as the guests love staying there. The grounds are freakishly beautiful, the food is insanely delectable (especially the crazy gourmet vegan options, which Esperanza treats as art rather than an afterthought), the pools are Trumptastic, and the high-class gym/spa/yoga facility really hits the spot after a night of top-shelf tequila tasting (which we did at one of Esperanza's oceanfront bars -- the one appropriately named "El Bar").

A trip to Esperanza is unlike any other trip you will take. The setting combines a desert landscape with beautiful beaches. There are numerous pools overlooking the incredible beach. The setting is fabulous, but what really makes Esperanza stand out is the people. The staff are all genuinely kind and there for you at every turn. You will feel like part of the family by the time you leave.

One of the other main draws to Esperanza was the incredible dining options. Being vegan I so appreciated the vast array of foods offered at each restaurant and the caliber of cuisine was outstanding. Chef Cerda is truly talented and each plate that comes to your table will be a work of art. I almost cried when it was time to leave, because the trip was so spectacular.

There is no other hotel to stay at if you visit Cabo. We vacationed at Esperanza for a week and it was absolutely the best trip we have ever experienced in our lives.
Not only is the resort the most gorgeous place on the planet, but the staff is so friendly and accommodating, it's unbelievable. My boyfriend (now fiance- thanks to the ambiance of this romantic hotel!) is a surfer. His car would be waiting for him at 6:30 each morning, surfboard packed by the staff and cold bottled water in the car waiting for him. This is one tiny example of the thought, care and level of excellence that this hotel exudes. Chef Cerda and his team prepare dishes the way you want them, they accommodate special diets like gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan, and the food is incredible. We will go back every year!

Esperanza Resort is breath taking!!! An absolute 5 star experience from start to finish. We enjoyed everything the resort had to offer, spa, dining and ultimate relaxation. If you find yourself lucky enough to visit Cabo you must stay at Esperanza!

Esperanza was the perfect honeymoon spot. Quiet, romantic, luxurious and stunning location on the ocean. Relaxing at the infinity pools overlooking their perfect rock-strewn beach was absolutely amazing. Breakfast was out of this world. Dnner at the Cocina Del Mar restaurant was exceptional. And they make it hard to leave the resort because of their flawless service and endless amenities. However, don't neglect heading to downtown Cabo for at least one night for equally amazing Mexican seafood (at more reasonable prices.)

Room Tip: Choose a room on the highest floor.

The experience you have at Esperanza is utterly amazing. Our day started with a much needed couples treatment at the Spa. The attention to detail and genuine care helps you escape from the day to day worries we all face. I truly lost track of time and was finally able to feel relaxed. We all migrated to the pool which is absolutely stunning. Service was attentive and consistent with the standards you expect from Auberge. The evening wrapped up with cocktails and dinner overlooking the water. Pictures do not do justice this special place and it truly is remarkable. The food was amazing and complimented with awesome service from start to finish. It was hard for us to leave but I can honestly tell you that it was the climax of our week in Cabo. I cannot thank the staff enough for making our experience a true memory.

We try to have a spa experience once while on a couples vacation. This was the second visit to the Spa facility at the Esperanza. We asked for a 90 minutes couples massage. On arrival, we offered choice of fresh fruit drinks. We seperated into the men's and women's section. This area was absolutely gorgeous. A beautiful outdoor shower with a hot tubs deep, hot and with waterfalls massaging your back. A great steam shower with various "essences" one could apply, followed by a quite rest on chaise under a beautiful vine laden trellis. We met back in the massage suite where we both had 2 of the best massages we can recall. The staff then brought fresh fruit and snacks allowing us to stay in a patio just outside the massage suite, have a shower, soak and kick back on chaise in the sun for 20 minutes après massage. A great, very romantic, totally relaxing afternoon.
