Finding the right luxury hotel is all about the right fit, some can be fancy but a little too stuffy while others can have all the amenities and none of the soul, but The Cape Cabo provides the perfect blend of sophistication and passion for an amazing stay in Cabo San Lucas. When searching hotels it is easy to be swayed by elegant pictures and long lists of features from pools to spas. The challenge can be that from a distance it is very hard to tell what the heart of the hotel is. For me the heart of The Cape Cabo is the ocean, as the modern architecture of the hotel is masterfully sculpted out of a beach. This pulse of the hotel makes everything fluid from walking into the entrance to the smooth flow from reception to relaxation and even to the attitude of hotel staff. Everything breathes in and breathes out like the rhythmic pattern of the beach or the soft pull of the wind coming onto shore.
With the ocean as its core everything else in the Cape seems to revolve around this foundation. Walking in it is your first breathtaking view and from your rooms, especially the suites it is a prized centerpiece. The suites offer an open concept again readily pulling your eyes to the ocean with nothing to interrupt your view. While the large bed, open shower, and claw foot tub were all exceptional, the balcony bests puts you at the foot of the heart of the hotel, the beach. From the swing bed you can eat, drink and even sleep to the sounds and sites of the ocean, which is particularly amazing at night as the stars call to you from universes beyond our sight.
Once out of your room the easy yet elegant flow of the hotel is a showcase. My favorite is of course the pool. With infinity edges overlooking the ocean and seats both in and out of the water that celebrate your views you cannot help but feel like you are a part of a very small, very exclusive club. The staff do all they can to support that notion, cheerfully teaming up to provide every comfort they can. When our bartender stepped away to see about us extending our stay it was completely confirmed to me that the soul of the hotel emanates through all the eye can see when at the Cape. On Sundays especially there is a brunch and live band that stole my heart in a serenade sealing The Cape Cabo as one of my top hotels in Cabo and beyond. So as we dined on their exquisite cuisine or pulled out the speakers and had our own private dance party I could not help but let this passion creep into me, gently washing away the demands of a busy mother and business woman.
