Hotels in Los Cabos

Many of the most biggest, newest and most popular hotels in Los Cabos lie along what locals call the Corridor, the stretch of beach that connects San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. If you stay there, you can split the difference between the two towns and easily explore both. Of course, there are unique places to stay in each town, too.  Here are our picks for the best hotels in Los Cabos.

Capella Pedregal. This boutique hotel in Cabo San Lucas is an easy walk from the town's vibrant nightlife. It has one of the most unique entryways anywhere, too: a 1,000-foot tunnel drilled through mountain rock.
One & Only Palmilla. Perhaps because concierges have been known to organize moonlit guitar serenades, this San José del Cabo resort is considered one of the most romantic Los Cabos hotels. Even better, all rooms face the Sea of Cortez.
Las Ventanas al Paraiso. Proof that this resort, along the Corridor, is one of the most posh hotels in Los Cabos: two butlers are assigned to each suite to help guests with any needs. It's also known for its beautiful grounds.
Hotel Esperanza. This Cabo San Lucas resort has one of the top spas in the region. All suites come with infinity-edge hot tubs, too.

Agency: Earth, Sea & Sky Vacations
Specializing in vacations in and around Los Cabos, the company organizes private-jet charters to Cabo; arranges in-villa yoga and Pilates classes; and hires babysitters or coordinates kid-friendly activities on nearby beaches.

The Villa Las Palmas delivers the exclusivity of a grand private residence for up to 20 beachgoers. But the 13,000-square-foot property offers more than just access to Baja’s sandy shores and the area’s world-class diving.

Formerly Capella Pedregal

The Zen-like 71-suite "windows to paradise" has a muted Mex-Med vibe. Hand-carved cedar doors open into guestrooms with spacious living space, ocean vistas from virtually any corner, private infinity-edge pools, and—in some cases—rooftop balconies.

Nestled between the desert and the Sea of Cortes, this boutique resort provides the intimacy of a small property, plus endless activities and easy access to the beaches and restaurants in Los Cabos.

Set on the tip of Mexico's Baja peninsula, One&Only Palmilla is luxury at its finest. First, there's the emphasis on individual service that makes this big resort feel like a boutique hotel (guests are called by name, for example).

Family-friendly all-suite resort on Baja’s quiet western coast. 

Room to Book: All rooms are ocean view; master suites offer separate bedrooms with king beds.

Doubles from $475.

Located in Los Cabos beside the Sea of Cortés, this beachfront resort is inspired by Spanish haciendas, with tiled roofs, a palm-lined courtyard, and an open-air lobby. A stay at the resort begins with a complimentary pomegranate margarita.

Set at the very tip of the Baja Peninsula, just a few miles from Cabo San Lucas, Esperanza comands views of both the Sea of Cortez and Punta Ballena (“Whale Point,” past which humpbacks migrate in winter).

There's first-rate fishing - teach the kids how to cast for marlin.

New to the scene (it opened in 2008) and discernibly hip, Casa Dorada faces onto Medano Beach, and is walking distance to the shops and restaurants of Cabo San Lucas.


For clans looking to laze around a lagoon-like pool but who still want some on-site action (a rock-climbing wall and a zipline across a white-sand beach).
