A more secluded, quiet resort – with a desert landscape feel between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, this well-priced Westin property (the TripValue here is +4, which is robust) caters especially well to couples and groups of couples looking to relax. Families will appreciate the larger accommodations here as well, which can sleep up to six. There aren’t any shops, restaurants or other attractions within walking distance, there’s a fee for the kids club, and the beach isn’t swimmable because of the undertow (and rocks and rip currents; this is a common issue in the Los Cabos area, but it has a negative effect on the Overall Beach Resort Rating); but the property offers freshly renovated rooms with modern bathrooms and other amenities such as small kitchens (the Studio Ocean Villas sleep four and the Two-Bedroom Ocean Villas sleep six) and a decent variety of dining options (four true restaurants plus a deli and a nice swim-up bar overlooking the beach with lighter fare). Other amenities include tennis courts, a spa with unique treatments such as grapefruit body exfoliations and moisturizing honey wraps, and an above average fitness center (the Westin brand is known for great fitness centers). The hotel also prides itself on its environmental sustainability, prioritizing energy and water conservation and waste minimization. There isn’t a lot to do on-site, but the front desk can help book excursions such as fishing, scuba diving, and ATV tours.
Departure COVID-19 testing is available on-site, but it isn’t complimentary.
