Hotel Highlights

  • Spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean
  • Fantastic, fresh Mexican food
  • A feeling of seclusion in the heart of Cabo

Overview

Due to damage from Hurricane Odile in September 2014, the hotel is currently closed for repairs.

Set on the tip of the Baja Peninsula, where the desert meets the beach and the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific, The Resort at Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas offers an eyeful of ocean from every point. Each of its 105 rooms has a private plunge pool, but there are three other pools, four restaurants and an exquisite spa to lure you outside.

Our favourite rooms

Each room has ocean views and a plunge pool, and all are decorated with brightly coloured Mexican art. Of them, Vistamar 344, an Estrella Suite on the top floor of its building, has a fire pit and sweeping views, along with a sitting room. For added privacy, the One Bedroom Beachfront Suites have the best views, their own gardens and a patio by the sea.

Poolside

The heated infinity pool by Don Manuel restaurant is open to adults and there’s a saltwater pool in the spa. By the beach club, there’s an all-ages infinity pool, as well as a children’s pool with a rock fountain. Though the hotel is on the beach, the ocean currents are too strong for swimming, so stick to the pools.

Packing tips

Don’t fret if you forget the basics. The hotel shop, AlmArte, sells stylish dresses, sandals and swimwear, along with art and homewares, including the dishes, pillows and art found in many of the guest rooms. The hotel library holds a stash of books and games.

Also

Pets are welcome. The hotel charges $150 per pet for animals to bed down, and will provide a food bowl.

Hotel Restaurant

There are four. Don Manuel's is the signature eatery, serving a menu of locally inspired dishes from breakfast to dinner in a glass-fronted dining room with ocean views. The menu features tacos and salads at lunch, with roasted fish and veal chops at dinner. Tucked into the cliffs over the sea, El Farallón is modelled after coastal seafood shacks. Options change daily based on what the fishermen haul in, so diners choose their fish, which is weighed, then grilled and served with chillies. Set at the pool bar, Crudo, as its name suggests, specialises in raw fish, including ceviche, sashimi and sushi, with specials such as Chilean salmon with pickled cucumber and charred lemon. Beach Club is the most family-friendly option, showcasing local ingredients in pastas, tacos and salads.

Hotel Bar

You’re never more than five minutes away from a decent magarita. Each restaurant has a bar attached, and there is a swim-up bar in the adults-only pool, by Don Manuel’s.

Last orders

Don Manuel’s serves breakfast from 6am until 11am, lunch from noon until 2pm, then dinner from 6pm until 10pm. El Farallon serves dinner from 7pm until 11pm. Crudo is open from 4pm until 9pm and the Beach Club from 11am until 6pm.

Room service

Available 24 hours a day; during restaurant hours, the full menu from Don Manuel’s is available, with a lighter selection of sandwiches, salads and soups on offer at other times.

Smith Insider

Dress code

Beach chic: kaftans, linen trousers and sandals are perfect after a day of sun-lounging.

Top table

At Don Manuel’s, request a table by the window. On pleasant nights (ie most of them), sit out by the fire pits for spicy margaritas before dinner.

Worth getting out of bed for

With pools, a spa, year-round sunlight and staff dedicated to taking care of your every need, The Resort at Pedregal can be a pretty difficult place to want to leave. Many guests never stray from the property. For those who do venture out, the hotel staffs a team of personal assistants to arrange all tours and activities. Cabo Dolphins Experience (www.cabodolphins.com) lets guest swim with bottlenose dolphins or even become a dolphin trainer for the day. The company also hosts snorkelling outings to some of the more remote and fish-filled bays. For adventurers, the team can also arrange a zip-line tour over a Unesco-protected canyon, a Tarzan-style rope swing and rock rappelling. Though you can’t swim swim off the coast of The Resort at Pedregal, the staff can arrange swims and dives in mellower waters up the coast.

Local restaurants

Mariachi bands stroll the open-air dining room at Edith’s, a popular restaurant at Paseo del Pescador near Medano Beach (+1 52 624 143 7580; edithscabo.com). The kitchen specialises in traditional Mexican dishes, but also serves Caesar salads mixed tableside and bananas flambé that are caramelised in a ball of fire before arriving on your plate. Set on the beach with views of the Land’s End rock formations, Hacienda Cocina & Cantina has a beach bar and tables in the sand. The menu includes tostadas, grilled skirt steak and lobster enchiladas (+1 52 624 163 3144; www.haciendacocina.com). Mexican meets Mediterranean at Bar Esquina on Avenida El Pescador. The kitchen serves fish from the Pacific and the Sea of Cortez, along with mesquite-cooked meats (+1 52 624 143 1890).

The Resort at Pedregal

By Mr & Mrs Smith.

Every hotel is visited personally by members of our team and given the Smith seal of approval. As soon as our anonymous reviewers have returned from this boutique hotel in Cabo San Lucas and unpacked their tequila and swimsuits, a full account of their beach escape will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside The Resort at Pedregal…

The Resort at Pedregal makes quite a first impression. Built beside a cliff on the Baja peninsula, the hotel is accessible only via a long, dark, chandelier-lit tunnel. At the end, the tunnel opens out to panoramic views of the sparkling blue waters where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez.

But this is much more than a seaside hangout. The hotel has a spectacular spa, with salt scrubs, wraps and massages in treatment rooms that open out to a saltwater pool. There are also four restaurants specialising in local seafood, and several bars that serve potent margaritas. Sip away, or enroll in a tequila class to learn more about the local spirit.

At every turn, this hotel takes advantage of its breath-snatching vistas. Check-in is al fresco, each restaurant has fabulous views, and even the treadmills in the gym have been cunningly positioned for gazing at the sapphire sea. The 96 rooms were built into Pedregal Mountain, all facing out at the ocean, and each with its own plunge pool, so guests can, in every sense, soak in the view.
