My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights in early Jan. We booked an ocean view room from which we would wake up to sunrise over the sea each morning. The room and bathroom were very large and comfortable. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food was uniformly good. Our package included breakfast which was well worth it - not coffee and rolls but anything (and everything) on the menu.

There is a beach, but the sea in front of the resort is very rocky. You can get in, but most guests used the lovely infinity pool. There's not a lot to do at the resort itself, but you can take a taxi into town. And if you just want to relax, it's the perfect place.

We used our membership in Exclusive Resorts to stay at Esperanza with our family of four. Our two college-aged girls were in heaven. The villa was huge-4 bedrooms, 4 and half baths, huge open balcony with grill and Jacuzzi. But the view was the real winner. Just beautiful. The service was first class and friendly. We joked that there were more people working at the resort than staying here! The concierge booked whale watching, snorkeling and ATVing. We balanced this with sunrise on the beach, relaxing by the pool and massages at the first rate spa. Food was excellent, but rather small servings and pricey. We've traveled to many places and this was one of the best. The only drawback was the crazy ride to and from Cabo or other activities.

We were lucky enough to rent a villa at the private residences at Punta Ballena, here at Esperanza. We had our own private swimming pool and jacuzzi, as well as our own chef to prepare our meals. Whatever we needed was merely a phone call away to our personal Esperanza concierge...car/driver, groceries, dinner reservations, spa reservations, you name it. Although we could not use the pools at Esperanza, we had our own, as well as access to the beach club that is just for the private residences, so you didn't miss out on a thing; if anything, it was much better than vying for a lounge chair around the busy pools. We happened to be here for New Years and the chef created an incredible meal for us! instead of joining the masses at the resort we stayed at our villa, out on the patio by the pool, and had an amazing view of the fireworks display. it was a truly memorable way to ring in the New Year and an amazing week long trip we will always remember!

My wife and I had an amazing time at this resort. Our room was an ocean view spa casita, the room was great because it had a huge, 4 panel sliding glass door that was a pocket door so you could open it up and have a huge view. We saw the sunrise every morning when we woke up. The infinity spa was really nice to sit and hang out and enjoy the view. Our room was on the hotel side, not the residences side. The pool on our side was amazing, not crowded, not noisy, pool service was great, food was good, not the best I've ever had but it was fresh and the service was good. Tasted some good tequilas at the pool and the ahi tuna was fresh and a nice poolside mid-afternoon snack. Very comfy pool chairs, be aware that everyone marks their territory early in the morning so the best chairs go quickly. They let you leave a magazine while you get breakfast. Breakfast was included in our reservation, it was pretty good, not the best ever but it was such a beautiful view each morning. We had lunch over on the residences side, that restaurant is amazing, overlooking the ocean from a perch above, the lobster fajitas were fantastic and so was the chile relleno w/ beef. The baja margarita was the best margarita I've ever had in my life. The dual shower heads in the bathroom were great. The service at the hotel was fantastic. Our concierge was great (Paula). She was very proactive about our activities and notified us of any changes and asked us about transportation, etc. Proactive service surprised me, that is extremely rare. One thing we highly recommend is the car service to and from the airport and the VIP airport experience. It was a little more than the taxi but they pick you up in a black escalade, give you bottled water, etc, it was a very nice experience, much better than the sketchy taxi situations that happen at airports in foreign countries. I will say that Cabo's new international terminal is incredibly nice. It was clean, organized, we felt very safe and not hassled. I wish we would have went to the traditional mexican dinner on thursday night. It looked like a lot of fun. Overall, I'd definitely stay at this hotel again, it was expensive but that's not important to us, we wanted a good experience and we got it. The views are off the chart, it's a high end boutique hotel with great service, great pool and great views from the rooms.

Let's break it all down...

A + for lounge chairs. This is extremely important when you are paying 1K + a night and they nailed it. I walked over to the residence side and I couldn't believe my eyes. I would be furious to have to lay on those chairs. They do not scream high end hotel to me.

A+ for the fire pit/s'mores/bar area. This is a perfect place to end your evening or start it before dinner out on the town. They need more wait staff though at night during festive season. I waited too long some nights and I wasn't happy.

A for the grounds. The hotel pool looking out on the ocean is ideal. There is just the right amount of grass, trees, and views to make it serene. It's easy to navigate around the hotel and everything is in close proximity to one another.

B+ for the room. The pillows are a little too soft. There is hundreds of outlets on one side of the bed and none on the other. There is two shower heads which is a peek but the pressure could use a tune up. I love the double vanity and there is just the right amount of storage place for your clothes. The robes are superb and the balcony is a great place to unwind in the hammock.

B for the food. Breakfast is good but lunch and dinner do not blow my hair back. The menu isn't robust enough and the flavors are a miss. I was served over cook shrimp one night and I've yet to have a lunch here where I've been impressed.

Biggest disappointment has to be the level of service at the pool. This level of hotel I expect fresh water being passed regularly, amenities coming out on the hour, and not having to hunt the staff down to order lunch. The first few days of my trip they were fairly on the ball but the decline has been rapid.

Overall, we will return back. It's a great, calming place. The weather is perfect, the proximity to town is great, and you get what you pay for at this joint.

Based on other travelers opinion by trip advisor we decided to celebrate our Christmas family dinner in this restaurant. A 6 tempo dinner, with champagne was really excellent! We had, we believe one of the best tables of the restaurant located at the edge overseeing the cliff with some indirect illumination to the sea it was really fantastic. Service prompt and kind our daughter is a vegetarian and she also had a great meal. Not cheap at all but proved worth it!!!
Whenever in Cabos do visit this place you won't regret it

Everything was perfect! From when we were picked up at the airport to our arrival at the hotel, to the tour of the property on the way to our room. Then the rooms view was amazing! The food was also great here! The adult pool was very quite and relaxing as well. its almost as if you dont want to recommend this place to keep it a secret! However, I highly recommend this place.
