Esperanza is an attractive 57-room hotel that’s part of a larger timeshare and residence development. The hotel portion of the resort is positioned above a beautiful shoreline with gorgeous views of the ocean and, from some rooms, the world-famous Cabo rock formations and arches in the distance.
Crashing waves on the rocks and spectacular ocean views provide a romantic and relaxing setting for the well-furnished rooms and suites. There are also generally good dining options, all outdoors, with beautiful views.
The rooms and public areas are tastefully decorated in a cohesive style that provides a genuine sense of place. As a guest, you know that you’re in Cabo San Lucas’ subtropical desert environment. The Baja California desert style is refined and attractive: thatched roof details, exposed beams, plaster walls, straw hats as wall furnishings, and terracotta tiles in restrained colours.
Service throughout the resort is excellent, with genuinely friendly staff providing true and efficient hospitality. And the massages provided in the thatched roof spa facilities were some of the best I’ve ever had. While the facilities aren’t as sleek or high-design as one might find at other luxury resorts, their low-key, casual style made for the perfect environment for pre and post-massage lounging.
The overall ambiance (and the resort’s guests) are a bit more casual than one often finds at resorts of this caliber, which is likely the result of the facility serving both hotel guests and the larger number of timeshare owners and their guests.
Cabo is well-known as a destination for party-seekers and so I probably shouldn’t have been surprised by the small but noticeable number of thirty-year-olds in white V-neck undershirts and backwards baseball caps at the hotel’s pools and dining venues.
