Are you thinking about traveling to Los Cabos, Mexico, and you have a little extra money to spend? I highly recommend the 5-star luxury resort Capella Pedregal. It has everything to make your stay in the Baja Peninsula a warm and relaxing one. Here are the highlights of this fabulous hotel.
Located in Cabo San Lucas, Capella opened in 2009, and it sparkles like it opened yesterday. The first thing that you notice is the tunnel that you drive through to get to the resort. It was drilled out of a mountain, and it’s the only way to get to the hotel. The place runs like a well-oiled machine, with employees keeping in constant contact with each other through ear pieces. So, when we arrived from the airport (in the SUV arranged for by the hotel), the staff greeted us by name and welcomed us with a refreshing hibiscus beverage. And, the magic didn’t end there.
We were personally escorted to our room by a member from the reception desk, and he showed us the features of the room. I can’t say enough about the room that we stayed in. Admittedly, we chose one of the cheapest rooms offered in our package, but after having made that room our home for five days, we wouldn’t have wanted anything more. Every room in the hotel faces the Pacific Ocean, so there’s never a bad view. Our room was no exception, and the thing that really separates Capella from the other resorts is the plunge pool that each room possesses. And, I did say each room.
Let’s talk about the room amenities for a moment. We had over 800 square feet of space, a double vanity, a soaking tub, a rainforest shower, a fireplace, an LCD television, a fully stocked refreshment center, free wireless internet access, and a private terrace with an infinity-edge plunge pool. Can you ask for anything more? It was divine to sit in our private pool, warm from the sun’s rays, and stare out over the ocean. The room was serviced twice a day, and the staff spared no expense in completely replenishing whatever was missing, whether it was bottled water or towels. But, it gets even better.
The hotel is all about the little details. For instance, upon arrival, we were given a bottle of tequila as a welcome amenity. There were nuts in a ceramic dish for us to nosh on, and lime and salt were provided (presumably to further our enjoyment of the tequila). Every afternoon, a staff person brought tortilla chips, guacamole, and two beers to our room. This was the standard for every guest. We didn’t do anything special to deserve such treatment! During the evening turn down service, the staff placed spa slippers by each side of the bed, chocolates on our side table, and a tray of coffee choices for the single-cup coffee maker in our room.
With everything mentioned above, who would want to leave the room, right? Oh, but you must! There are three restaurants within the resort that are equally tasty in their cuisine, but each one offers a different atmosphere. Perhaps the most stunning of them all is El Farallon, a restaurant that has literally been carved into the side of a cliff. The Pacific crashes against the rocks below where you’re eating, and the sea breeze brushes your face. The restaurant has pre-set courses leading up to the main course, which you have a choice in. It is a wonderful experience to eat on the water in such an isolated and unique way. No other resort can boast such a feat.
There are always packages available, and I think we struck gold with ours. Breakfast in Don Manuel’s restaurant each day was a real treat. The choices were endless, and there was no request too great for them to handle. The spa is incredibly relaxing with its spring water pool and multitude of treatments available. The location of the resort is perfect, as it sits next to the town and marina. With Land’s End in front of you, it’s very easy to believe that you’re in heaven!
