Highs + Lows

  • It's most inspiring to see how Esperanza bounced back after the devastating hurricane of 2014. We visited just after their reopening, and the staff's pride and positive spirit after having brought it back to life was contagious.

  • The photos speak for themselves but in case I have to mention, the pool and the views are nothing short of epic.

  • For those who don't take a vacation from their workouts, there are seriously great classes offered. Raphael the TRX instructor is an a** kicker.

  • The sea in front of the property is too rough for swimming- you'll have to trek to calmer shores if you want a dip in the ocean.

Important Bits

  • Type

    Luxury Beach Resort and Spa

  • Vibe

    Laid back luxury with covetable style.

  • Location

    On the bluffs overlooking two private coves at Punta Ballena near Cabo San Lucas.

  • Rooms

    57 Casitas, Villas, Suites and Full Residences.

  • Music

    Crashing waves, ocean breezes and the sound of soothing wind chimes as you enter the property.

  • Year Opened

    2002

  • Designed By

    After the devastating 2014 hurricane, the resort took the opportunity to perform a complete design refresh lead by Mary Alice Palmer of Hospitality Interiors at HKS Hospitality Group. Palmer's touch lends magic with meticulous design details you don't often see at a resort of this size.

  • Pool/Gym

    Yes and Yes. Two infinity pools and a fully equipped, modern workout facility offering a full range of classes from yoga to TRX.

  • Restaurant

    Cocina Del Mar specializes in fresh fish and seafood in a more upscale, four course fashion, while La Terraza Americana serves up the casual favorites (#chilaquiles). There's also Pesca ceviche bar.

  • Bar

    Sit at The Lounge Bar or enjoy cocktails poolside, or by the fire on the terrace...or, let's face it- all of the above.

  • Minibar

    A good mix of snacks and spirits tucked into a sweet antique Parisian inspired hutch...and a stocked Nespresso machine, which should be on every hotel's must list.

  • Wifi

    Yes.

  • Children

    Yes.

  • Price

    Pricey for Mexico but very reasonable for the level of service and luxury.
