“An amazing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

My stay at Esperanza was magical. The attention to detail is amazing. My room had a incredible view of the ocean, The beds are so comfortable!!!!!The food was so GOOD! Every morning while I was having breakfast, I enjoyed watching the whales. I saw one mommy whale pushing her baby. There is a nice selection of beautiful art and sculptures through out the property. The service is amazing. Everyone is very friendly and attentive. Love the Boutique there. I cannot wait to go back!

Room Tip: Every room looks exceptional

Thank you for your wonderful comments. I am so glad that your stay at Esperanza was magical!

Yes, each of our suites within the resort has a view of the ocean, where we currently have whales showing off out front.

Thank you for your comments regarding the Boutique. Our newest shopping outlet, Esperanza’s Artisan Market has just been unveiled in March and offers elegant and tasteful art, jewelry and decoration from select designers throughout Mexico.

We hope to see you again at Esperanza very soon!

Warm Regards,

We stayed here in Feb and I can’t begin to express my pleasure with the resort. The food, spa and view just got better daily. Every morning we enjoyed whales playing in the ocean while eating an amazing breakfast (both the buffet and ala cart were great). The drinks were good, not super sweet like how a lot of resorts tend to do.

The staff was amazing. I can't say enough good things about the service. I don't know if they were just fooling us, but it seemed like they actually loved their jobs!

We really enjoyed a whale watching trip which was not associated with the resort. I couldn’t believe how many we saw.

If we could afford to vacation like this often, we’d be back in a heartbeat!

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with such delightful feedback from your recent stay here at Esperanza! It is wonderful that you not only took the time to acknowledge the favorable experience you had but that we were able to make your stay memorable. Our team loves what they do and work very hard to ensure top service.

We are thrilled that you came at just the perfect time to catch our whales! In Cabo’s winter & spring months, you can see entire whale families playing right up in front of our restaurants and terraces throughout the resort!

We hope to see you again at Esperanza very soon.

Warm Regards,

We are wrapping up our stay here in Cabo and I can't wait to come back to Esperanza. Last year We stayed at Las Ventanas - which is nice but my stay here at Esperanza has been top notch. I love everything about this place. The service here is the best you can find in Mexico. Also, so nice to have a short cab ride to downtown Cabo.
We upgraded our room to an ocean view casita with spa. We have enjoyed our little patio immensely.
They have a little army working on this property around the clock. The grounds are kept impeccable!
Also, the security is tight - which I liked. We took a cab home from San Jose one night and the cab driver had to go through two security check points and they even made the cab driver's adult son step out of the cab and wait outside the gate while we were driven inside - no second driver cabs allowed! Needless to say, I felt very safe here!
Another great feature was the breakfast that was included in our package. It was not buffet - it was sit down with a full menu and of course - great service.
The spa is gorgeous - had the best hot stone massage ever! I even took pics of the private shower since we are remodeling our master bath at home and want to incorporate some of the same features.
The only thing I would tell Esperenza to tweak is the lighting in the bathroom and switch out the shower heads in the bathroom.
I can't say enough wonderful things about Esperenza - worth every penny!

I am so happy to hear that you had an amazing stay at Esperanza. I am honored that you consider our service here to be the best in Mexico!

Here at Esperanza Resort, we take security very seriously. Our guests’ safety is a top priority for our team and I am glad that you perceived this.

We are currently working on a project that will include new showerheads in our bathrooms in each casita. Also, the lighting has been a subject that we are looking into as well. Thank you so much for bringing up both of these issues; I truly appreciate your feedback.

I look forward to having you back at Esperanza very soon!

We just returned from an exceptional vacation at Experanza and truthfully provide this review. The resort, our room, the service and food were perfect. We have stayed at Experanza, Las Ventanas, and Pamilla on several occasions and return to Experanza because it is the best resort in Cabo San Lucas. Simply stated, Experanza provides a more intimate, private, and luxurious experience. Every room has an exceptional view, the property has the best location in Cabo (direct view of the arch and long sandy beach) and you are surrounded in natural beauty. The spa is spectacular and an oasis of tranquility. The staff is top notch and our every wish was flawlessly granted. We have been blessed to travel to many luxury resorts and to be fair, must recognize Experanza for its winning combination of physical beauty, superb accomodations, excellent service, and value pricing for a luxury resort. BTW, we dined at Capella Pedregal and it does not compare to Experanza.

Room Tip: We have stayed in several rooms at Esperanza and the views were always excellent.

I recently returned from a trip to Cabo during which we stayed at Esperanza Resort. I've been fortunate to do a lot of traveling and this was definitely the nicest resort I've been to so far. I felt like a queen when we were picked up by the hotel's transportation - a shiny Cadillac Escalade - with water bottles, cool wash clothes and snacks ready for us after a long flight! It's little touches like that that we experienced all throughout or stay which made me certain they have not overlooked any detail! When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with Esperanza's Signature Margarita (the Cabo Green Margarita, which you must try!) and taken to our rooms. While on the way to our "casita" I fell in love with the sights around me. The resort has an an incredible wide ocean view and wonderful architecture and landscaping.

The rooms were extremely spacious, beautiful and luxurious, with an ocean view and an infinity edge jacuzzi on the balcony! The room staff were very helpful with anything you needed. One night I woke up with a horrible headache but no Advil at 2 a.m., and the concierge had the requested Advil up to my room within what seemed just moments of my call.

The rest of the resort staff from the concierge to the restaurant staff went out of their way to make sure everything was the best quality and that we were happy. They made the trip extremely memorable and I highly suggest this resort to anyone who wants a luxurious and breathtaking vacation. There are fun activities too like boot camp on the beach and whale watching trips. I was surprised at how many whales I could see even just from the hotel!

If you go - don't forget to go to the Spa while you are there! It's the most beautiful Spa I've ever seen with private outdoor showers surrounded by flowers and and the massage I had was fantastic!

I just returned home from the most beautiful adventure to Cabo staying at the ESPERANZA Resort....
The food and service was exceptional...I was amazed at out in-room massages chocolate covered strawberries....evening cocktails by the fire and the WHALES I am certain were on payroll....they dances and played everyday in the ocean right in front of our resort. I lived overseas in Bali for 10 years and have to say that I have now found my NEW PARADISE at the Esperanza ....WE WILL BE BACK :)

Room Tip: All the rooms are glorious....I luved the ones with the outdoor hot tub :)

The moment you walk onto the property, you can't help but pinch yourself to make sure that the experience is real. The astonishing views of the ocean the smiling faces of those that greet you upon arrival, and the overwhelming feeling of vacation encompass you, as you're reassured that this is in fact actually happening. We arrived in our casita and couldn't have been happier. The private jacuzzi, two shower heads, large king bed, and open patio overlooking the ocean is serene. As great as the grounds and rooms are, the staff are truly the highlight at Esperanza. Everyone we encountered was so genuine and sincere, and you can tell that each employee thoroughly enjoy one another and interacting with guests. They go above and beyond to really enhance the experience and make you feel welcome and part of the Esperanza family. We also appreciated the green initiatives the resort continues to make to be Eco-friendly, which is very important in the industry as it continues to evolve.

The spa and dining were both top-notch as well. From the fresh lobster risotto, seafood tortilla soup, ginger and green margaritas, to the Asado Argentina, you are sure to never go hungry! We also got to experience the award-winning Spa, where the entire experience is detail-oriented and thoroughly one of the best spas I've ever been to. The custom elixirs were fantastic and original, the private lounge and waiting area was simply beautiful and tranquil.

Overall, this resort is high class, genuine, and a dream come true in the midst of reality. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
