Pool Lounge at Esperanza, Cabos, Mexico

Esperanza, Auberge Resorts Collection

Perched on a rock formation near Cabo San Lucas, Esperanza, managed by renowned Auberge Resorts, of Napa’s Auberge du Soleil fame, doesn’t have much of a sandy beach but boasts dramatic vistas of the crashing Sea of Cortez. There’s something about the property that feels instantly easy and welcoming: guests, many of whom have been coming back annually since it opened in 2001, mingle over breakfast at one of the resort’s excellent outdoor restaurants and walk barefoot down to the pool.

The casitas are housed in one of several three- and four-story thatch-roofed stucco buildings that cluster around a manicured lawn and small cove. Every accommodation is spacious (the smallest room is 925 sq. ft.), has in-room iPads and regional art and sculpture, offers a view of the sea and features a private terrace or patio with either a hammock or a hot tub. The resort used the renovation process after Hurricane Odile in September 2014 to improve on public spaces and completely redo all of the soft goods and decorations in each of the rooms.

The newest offerings, also completed after the hurricane, are the multi-bedroom Luxury Suites, each equipped with private butler service, a full kitchen and private pool. Couples craving privacy should go for one of the recently redone suites or the penthouse, which has its own elevator entrance and two outdoor terraces.

The residences, on the other side of the 17-acre property and part of the Auberge Residence Club, consist of two-, three- and four-bedroom suites also situated in the multilevel structures and featuring a similar design scheme (the flexibility and space of the residences are ideal for large families traveling together). The property has several pool areas, including a gorgeous multilevel space in the family-friendly Residence Club section.

The spa features 14 treatment rooms and a lengthy menu of destination-specific offerings, such as the Margarita Medley, a scrub with moisturizer made from local Baja limes. The gym offers 15 complimentary fitness classes a week, including yoga and Pilates. While the property does seem a little outdated in comparison to some of the others in the area, the sprawling layout, multiple pools and dining venues and excellent babysitting service make Esperanza a solid option for families. There is also a kid’s program with activities ranging from ceramic painting and piñata parties to yoga classes and stand up paddle boarding.

Visitors not staying on-property can still enjoy dinner at fine-dining Cocina del Mar, which has a dramatic, romantic setting: tables on three tiers built into the side of the cliff and offering sweeping views of the sea. Diners seated on the bottom tier should be aware that more aggressive waves may get their feet wet.

Solaz, a Luxury Collection Resort, Los Cabos

On the stretch of coastal highway that connects Cabo San Lucas to San Jose del Cabo, the Solaz commands attention with an ultra-contemporary facade. Step inside, however, and the natural landscape takes center stage: the so-called "dry jungle" of cacti and colorful flowers ends just as the sparkling Sea of Cortez begins.

Designed by Sordo Madaleno, the Solaz was engineered to appear as if it has sprung up from desert. With a flawless interplay of traditional Mexican elements (woven ropes hanging from the ceiling, traditional hammocks in each room) and modern sensibilities (sleek marble surfaces, muted colors, high ceilings and wide-open spaces), the resort's design complements the scenery perfectly. All 128 rooms offer sophisticated, understated décor and fluid layouts, allowing guests to enjoy the natural setting. No creature comforts have been overlooked, however, as rooms come with tricked-out amenities like touch screens, tech-enabled lighting and music systems and lovely open bathrooms leading to massive outdoor showers.

Guests have their choice of five pools on-property, including a divine 50-meter infinity pool overlooking the surf, which creates a stunning vista of blue-on-blue. Despite its minimalist design, however, the Solaz takes pride in its location, and nods to the Baja Peninsula are found everywhere, from the spa to the cocktail menu. The region is known for its ancient whaling culture, and there is an on-site museum of sculptures and historical artifacts (including a 43-foot-long whale fossil suspended from the ceiling).

Adding to the resort's appeal is its impressive roster of restaurants, starting with Cascabel, a breezy eatery serving modern Mexican cuisine for breakfast and lunch (don't miss the morning buffet of artisan stations serving breakfast chilaquiles, tacos and empanadas next to excellent pastries and fresh juices). For dinner, Al Pairo, the seafood-centric fine-dining restaurant, offers the catch of the day served with sophisticated small plates. But the standout is Mako, located by the resort's infinity pool flanked by sleek seating areas and a swim-up bar. Favorite dishes include Mexican classics (of course) like fajitas and quesadillas along with power bowls and salads with locally-sourced ingredients.

Following days at the beach, guests can unwind at the 10,000 square foot spa, which is all marble, trickling fountains and sweet-smelling aromas, and one of the property's greatest draws. With eight treatment rooms, the spa offers cutting-edge treatments like chromotherapy, along with sublime facilities, like a Himalayan salt igloo made with traditional Mexican tiles that promotes circulation and overall wellness. Additional activities are on offer, including culturally immersive tours to visit cave paintings and cooking classes, as well as water sports and adventure activities.

Penthouse View  : The Cape, a Thompson Hotel, Los Cabos, Mexico

The Cape, a Thompson Hotel

The Cape, the first hotel built in Cabo after the destruction of Hurricane Odile in September 2014, has breathed new life into the area, offering a buzzy scene, a restaurant helmed by a renowned chef and high-touch service.

Each of the 160 rooms, suites and multi-bedroom villas offers direct views of the sea and famous Arch rock formation via an outdoor terrace or balcony furnished with chairs and swinging couch. While the general aesthetic of the property leans toward industrial chic, with unfinished cement walls, a huge multi-use lobby and open air corridors, room interiors are surprisingly warm and traditional. Each has a wooden plank wall, la eather headboard, an open plan configuration, a copper bathtub and hand-painted tiles by renowned Mexican ceramist Jose Noe Suro. The Panoramic corner suites (there is one on each floor of the main hotel building) offer two walls of windows overlooking the Gulf and the Arch, as well as a telescope for nighttime constellation viewing. The two smaller buildings next to the main building have one-, two- and three-bedroom villas, some with rooftop decks and plunge pools.

Most of the wood throughout the hotel was sourced locally and the black clay lining the walls of the corridors was brought up from Oaxaca. The enormous lobby space pays homage to the hotel’s post-Odile beginnings with a huge whale (Cabo has incredible whale watching between December – March) made entirely out of driftwood found after the hurricane. The oversize outdoor lobby is meant to bring the sea in and the many nooks and tucked away corners, including the buzzy sunken lobby bar and pool table, allow guests to utilize the space day and night. Dining options include the Glass Box, a glass structure where guests can enjoy cocktails and light bites with a direct view of surfers right in front of the property, Ledge, a casual spot for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the rooftop bar, which has a circular bar and cozy couches to sink into late at night and listen to the waves crash against the rocks below. Dinner is served in Manta, the main restaurant with an open kitchen offering fusion Pacific Rim cuisine created by famed chef Enrique Olvera.

After a day of activities on the water, guests can relax in one the five treatment rooms at the spa or break a sweat in the workout room with a view. As with most beaches in Cabo, the stretch of sand in front of the property is a bit rocky and as it is a popular surf spot, it's best for strong swimmers. There are two pools as well, including one that directly overlooks the beach. Service is not sacrificed for the scene and all staff, from valets to bellmen and waiters, is attentive.

Viceroy Los Cabos

This dreamy, design-forward hotel opened to much fanfare in 2018, in part thanks to its highly Instagrammable aesthetic. Conceived and executed by a variety of designers (notably Miguel Angel Aragonés), the resort is a modern spectacle: guests are welcomed to an airy lobby framing the hotel's pièce de résistance, an open-air pavilion of shallow water convening around a nest-like lattice structure—part-contemporary art installation, part-hotel. This massive entryway is framed by minimalist white towers (housing guest accommodations), leading to the oval-shaped swimming pool and beach. The result is an optical illusion-like design, which is striking yet understated, playful yet sophisticated.

The resort's 194 rooms, suites and villas echo the overall aesthetic, with sexy and streamlined design. Crisp white linens, blonde wood accents and marble furniture complement fluid, indoor-outdoor layouts with balconies and terraces overlooking the pavilion and ocean below. There are palatial multi-bedroom residences that are similarly outfitted, with Jacuzzis, floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive outdoor spaces.

With so many restaurants and hotels in Cabo, it's only necessary for a newcomer to come prepared with A+ dining options, and the Viceroy delivers. Guests have a choice between Nido, housed in the resort's iconic nest structure, which serves excellent fish and street food-inspired cuisine; Casero Restaurant, an all-day eatery of creative Mexican classics like short rib chilaquiles and pancakes with cajeta; and Cielomar, the 360-degree rooftop with elevated dinner offerings like wood-fired pizzas, yellowtail tartare and marinated whiskey duck—served around a fire pit.

When not savoring cocktails and bites by the beach, guests can unwind at the 11,000-sq.-ft. spa, which is a state-of-the-art marvel of wellness offerings including hydro-massage chairs, ice fountains and a menu of treatments utilizing organic local ingredients. Curated by the Viceroy's 'Head of Vibe,' there are plenty of other pursuits on offer, including surfing with a local instructor, fishing and water sports, along with creative activities like underwater photography, tequila-making classes and guided walks in San Jose Del Cabo's downtown.
