Reviewed 21 May 2014

We just returned from the fabulous Esperanza and it was everything I thought it would be. The resort sits atop a rocky cliff with breathtaking views of the crashing sea below. The perch from the Cocina del Mar restaurant is probably the best seat in the house. Wow...

Check in was seamless. We were offered a cool drink (either with our without tequila!) and shown immediately to our room. With a beautiful vaulted bamboo ceiling, it was not overly large but lovely nonetheless. There was small deck with a hot tub, but alas, no lounge chairs--just a table with two chairs and a built in sofa. It would have been great to enjoy the afternoon sun on our own deck relaxing on chaises. Oh well. The bathroom was to die for--double sinks, an oversized tub and an amazing open double shower. Ooh la la...

The menu-style breakfast (no buffet) has something for everyone. Don't miss the huevos rancheros and eggs benedict. C'mon, you only live once! Lunch in the Lounge Bar was delicious--sandwiches, salads, fresh fish--in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. While I may have had better meals in my life, the view from dinner at Cocina del Mar made everything taste better...just unreal.

Esperanza is pristine and IMMACULATE. There is not a blade of grass out of place. The hardworking staff is constantly doing something, from weeding, to planting, to painting to polishing the luggage carts. Impressive. Service, too, is top-shelf. Salvador at Cocina, among many others, simply could not do enough for you.

So why the "almost" perfect? The beautiful two-tiered infinity pool is neither well thought-out nor smartly designed. The comfortable lounge chairs are literally ONE ON TOP OF THE OTHER so there is little privacy, quiet or tranquility. There were just two waiters who worked like crazy; it felt understaffed. Because the beach is not swimmable, there are just a few chairs down there (I almost got the feeling they discourage you from sitting there.) If you are looking for a long, walkable, swimmable sandy beach (think Grace Bay, Seven Mile Beach, Maroma Beach or even the Riviera Maya) this is NOT the place for you. I miss that...

The resort exudes a romantic, candlelit vibe, especially at night, so leave the kids at home. The pricing is not for the faint of heart--just ask my husband who enjoyed a $30 poolside Patron margarita. Yikes. That said, some things are worth it and Esperanza just might be one of them! Enjoy...

Room Tip: We liked our upper floor room to enjoy the view.

Best place I've ever stayed. Not one complaint. Simply amazing. Every meal was delicious, every drink was mixed with care and served cold. Want anything all you have to do is ask. At dinner my wife wanted nachos. It wasn't on the menu...." No problem coming right up". And they did! Best nachos I've ever tasted. Quiet, relaxing, clean, even the lotion in the bathroom they provided us was the best I've ever used. We loved everything about it.

Room Tip: Stayed in a villa. I won this trip through work and the villa was part of the package. It was way...

We went for the day to check out the hotel and restaurant for a destination wedding next year. We met Nubia who showed us the entire property. The property is gorgoeus. They valet your car and give you wonderful refreshing drinks upon arrival. The view is breathtaking from every angle. They have a lovely tiered outdoor diningroom that they set up with tiki torches for dinner. They have a fantastic location on a small private beach. The beach is swimable but its rocky. The view from the private beach is of the arch. The swimming pool has a milliion dollar view for photos. Its a lovely rectangle shaped infinity pool on a small hill surrounded by palm trees and chairs. When you stand at the head of the pool the palm trees fram the pool and the pool then melts into the ocean. Its a superb location for photos. We also saw some of the guest rooms. The were all generous in size and nicely stocked with ammenities. They all had balconies. Some had a jacuzzi and some had a hammock. They all had bath products, wifi, large screen tv's , hairdryers, mini frig, The grounds were immaculate and the staff was very nice. They rest of the grounds have several pools, tennis courts and a spa that i did not make it to. They also have a gift shop and are close to Cabo. I would go back in a heartbeat

Many years ago we had eaten dinner at Esperanza and thought that some day we would like to stay at the hotel. This year we decided to book a six night get away at Esperanza.and, we are so glad that we did. What a wonderful hotel. The grounds are beautiful and impeccably maintained. Our room is large and everything about it is terrific. We are on the third floor so we have a beautiful view of the ocean looking out over the swimming pool. Our balcony has a negative edge jacuzzi which is spectacular. The bathroom has a double shower with a large window looking out on the jacuzzi and the Sea of Cortez.

What is absolutely spectacular is that you can sleep with the sliding glass doors open and listen to the ocean. The glass sliding doors are pocket doors, so the room really feels wide open. There are no bugs!

The amenities in the room are great. Plenty of bottled water (no extra charge). Same for soda. Excellent coffee machine In the room so that it is delightful to sit on the balcony and have coffee in the morning.

The beach is absolutely stunning with very comfortable day bed type chaises and plenty of umbrellas to provide shade. And, children under sixteen are not allowed at the hotel pool. So, it is a perfect place to relax.

If it fits in your budget, I would definitely recommend staying at Esperanza. We will be back.

Esperanza is absolutely wonderful in every way! We stayed in a 4 bedroom Villa for a week long girls trip. Our accommodations were excellent, but you wouldn't have to stay in a villa to have marvelous rooms and service. The resort is unpretentious and blends seamlessly into its surroundings. Its beauty crept up on me. It starts with the wonderful ocean view from the palapa pool and restaurant, then the view of the resort pools stair stepping down towards the ocean, later the view from the lobby bar and main restaurant is remarkable (especially at night, when they light up the rock) with the waves hitting the rocks.
Food served poolside from the palapa restaurant is excellent. Fajitas were great! The main restaurant is highly ranked in Cabo and something new on the menu is a 3 course prix fixe for $60 or a 4 course for $70. I tried the scallop appetizer, fillet and even an expresso soufflé' They were muy bueno!! Tip: Take a wrap because it cools down with sunset and the breeze.
Service is above A+++. Everyone from groundskeepers to boutique workers, to drivers, to massage therapists go above and beyond in their service and seem genuinely friendly.
Spa was rated one of the best is Mexico and I would agree that the massage I had was one of the best ever. I didn't "hang" in the meditative and restorative areas, but thought they were comfortable. They give you a "smoothie" type drink either before or after you treatment. It was yummy and you just knew from the color green that it was good for you -haha.
Security is very subtle, but we had to go through 2 security gates/checks by auto when headed towards the room. I had the feeling that everyone knew where we were and how we were doing all of the time - not in a creepy way, just the way where they call a golf cart to take you up the hill when you were walking that way....nice like that.
The resort will have your villa, casita, etc stocked with groceries for you, provide very safe, clean transportation, most of the usual fee services. Worth it.
It's a fair drive from the airport and into town. Since it was a relaxing girls trip we planned to stay at the resort and so only ventured out for dinner at Edith's (I highly recommend) and a walk around the marina. Staying in, more than served our purpose, but I do know that many activities abound in the area from golf to water sports/boating/fishing.
I did see some families with children, ok one family with children. We weren't there during the summer or any holiday, so that probably explained it. I did hear that during Easter the resort was full of families. So if not looking for kids, visiting end of April, beginning of May worked for us.
Really can't say enough good things and honestly can't think of even one thing I was dissatisfied with. Highly deserves it's 5 star rating.

We just celebrating our wedding day at the Esperanza Resort in April. Living in a different country, I was hesitant to sign up for a destination wedding worried it would be hard to get anything done and hard to get people to come. We fell in love with the Esperanza after having dinner at the Cocina Del Mar a few times as a family. After I began considering the Esperanza no where else could even come close. I took the plunge and began planning the wedding booking the resort almost immediately after being engaged. It was the best decision of our lives. The Esperanza staff is beyond incredible. The resort is no doubt breathtaking, but working with the wedding coordinator Nubia, was an absolute pleasure. Every little detail was taken care of. Being an event planner myself, that can sometimes be hard to be hands off and allow someone else to do your job. I was SO confident in Nubia and she was beyond competent in handling everything that I never once felt the need to step in. We only traveled down once before the wedding to do the tasting because everything else could be handled by email and a few conference calls. This resort is so stunning, the staff is so over the top, and the food and drinks are 5 star that nothing can top it. Our wedding day was more than we could have ever dreamed of and it is all thanks to this amazing place. Thank you for the most amazing wedding experience and a wonderful stay with your resort! We will no doubt be lifetime guests!

Room Tip: All of their rooms are amazing! We upgraded for our wedding and it was well worth it!
