My daughter and I stayed for two nights in paradise. Wish we could have stayed longer. The design and layout of the grounds were stunning: flowers, cactus gardens, coconut trees, pool, casitas, gorgeous views of the sea. Enjoyed watching the sunrise and listening to the various birds. Breakfast was delicious, especially their signature drink, orange and pomegranate juice. VIlla del...

Superb place for poeple who want to enjoy sun and deserted beach. We went for a walk and during 5 km walk - meet nobody except crabs on the beach. Villas and pool are excellent, but villas would benefit from furniture refresments. Food was simple and good. In the evenings there is nothing to do, but there is a great...

We stayed at Villa del Faro in June of 2016. Awesome place, peaceful location, wonderful hosts, great room, amazing pool area... I wish I could go back and live there! They took care of us and catered to us, and it was great. Terrific food too! Can you say romantic!

We spent a few nights in San Jose del Cabo and then went up to Villa del Faro. I wish we had been there longer - it was wonderful. Beautiful, clean, relaxing with really good meals on site. The Sea of Cortez was great to swim in, with lots of snorkeling and diving available near by. There's also a really...

This "off the grid" property is amazing with it's serenity, view, privacy and overall aura. So much care and dedication has gone into each one of the Casitas and there are plenty of private alcoves for relaxing, reading a book, meditating or just looking out over the expansive Sea of Cortez. Seth and Jocelyn could not have been more friendly...

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...

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...

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...

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
