I can't rave enough about Villa del Faro. It is an exquisite gem, tucked away off the beaten path. Everything about it was perfect and top notch. From the minute we walked in the foyer, we fell in love with the place. It felt like we were walking into a spectacular grand Mexican mansion from days gone by - impressive...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 March 2017 via mobile

Looking out from our balcony the first morning we watched a pod of whales cavorting out at sea. Humming birds flew around during breakfast. There was a dove nesting on its eggs outside our front door. We saw pelicans and cormorants on the rocks. On our 3-hour walk along the beach we didn't pass another human. Blue sea, golden sand,...

This little oasis in the Baja Sur dessert overlooks Steinbeck's Sea of Cortez. The road to get there is rough--but this is often true of Paradise. We enjoyed our time away from TV, radio, "news," cell phones, traffic, "civilization." Instead, we watched for whales from our bedroom, snorkeled on nearby reefs, listened to the birds sing at glorious sun rise,...

We loved our stay at Villa del Faro. Our hosts, Seth and Jocelyn, as well as a few members of the family whom own Villa del Faro made us feel very well taken care of. We were always fed the most delicious meals. The place itself is absolutely beautiful. You can see that much care has been put into this...

Very nice staff, always ready to help. The place is secluded, beautiful, perfect for just resting, relaxing and enjoying gorgeous views. You feel like you're almost on your own, one on one with the ocean and amazingly bright stars with no one bothering you. Rooms are very nice, big and clean with anything you need (including lots of good books)....

A complete getaway with amazing views, cozy fireplaces and a hammock to take in the stars... Almost every morning I saw whales pass by — but barely a human being on the beach. Close enough to Cabo Pulmo to drive and dive, then return to this oasis of paradise.

What a brilliant place. The stone cottage on the beach was an idyll that I can scarce imagine finding the likes of again. The villa itself is sublime. Great food, gracious service. Superb ... cannot wait to return.

This place is great. The beaches are essentially private with whales and dolphins swimming off the shore. You can borrow snorkeling gear and go out on the reef just off the beach and they have kayaks that you can borrow. We stopped at Costco and Walmart for food for the week since our room had a full kitchen. The trip...

A beautiful, secluded oasis by the beach, I could not have asked for a more relaxing, accommodating and friendly experience. Far exceeded my expectations. A haven if you're a birder like me. Can't wait to visit again!!!

Everything about our stay was glorious. The reception we received from our exceptionally gracious and hospitable hosts, the very private and beautifully appointed casita, the meals, the pool, and the extraordinary access to the beach (and whale sightings). The grounds are designed to maximize privacy and yet also encourage exploration.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"Exquisitely off the grid" An elegant eco-hotel, Villa del Faro is a unique oasis nestled on a deserted beach. The Villa was created with the integrity of the surrounding desert in mind. We offer solitude instead of shops, safe swimming beaches, great books, gourmet food, snorkeling, surfing, and just pure beauty! One hour north of the Los Cabos Airport, but a world away in seclusion and serenity. Eight separate Casitas. Breakfast included. ... more   less

“We totally loved the Casa Azul towards the edge of the property, but quite intrigued by the beach casita, tho did not end up staying in it. The pool casita also looked special, but could be a bit of a problem if other guests were spending a lot of time at the pool - did not look carefully at the others, but sure all are equally comfortable and unique.”
