I suggest this amazing Resort to everyone whether it's a celebration, honeymoon or...

The hotel is an experience, one that will not be soon forgotten. The pleasantries of all of the team members is sincere and humble. Everyone was truly happy to make your vacation the best it could be. From front diskless check in to delicious dinning options, to beautiful grounds and accommodation and pool side foot rubs. What else can they...

Spent 9 nights there in April; family holiday with our 3 kids. The hotel is very pretty, amazing gardens and grounds, kept so well. Food was really good at all the different restaurants and the staff couldn't do enough. It is difficult to fault the hotel. The weather was also amazing. We had two interconnecting rooms which were lovely. Would...

This resort is gorgeous and the grounds are a tropical paradise!! I highly recommend this for couples, but especially recommend this for families who want an upscale experience. They have multiple pools and a beautiful kids pool and a 'kids only' play area. The building exteriors are stunning and the entire property is beautifully maintained. The rooms are comfortable, the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A verdant oasis on the tip of the Baja Peninsula. Where azure waters greet the mountainous desert and the Pacific Ocean merges with the Sea of Cortez. Where warm waves break onto a dramatic shoreline… and gray whales can be seen rising majestically in the distance. Here, the gracious style of Old Mexico - with its red-tiled roofs, whitewashed walls, and idyllic setting of exquisite fountains - is quietly nestled amidst swaying palms, bird of paradise and other tropical bloom. ... more   less
