We had our wedding at Mar del Cabo! It was absolutely stunning! But the even better part was the staff and our whole experience there! From the welcome drinks, to breakfast every day, around the pool and at the beach, the staff take incredible care of you and always remember your name and even the room your in! Would highly recommend Mar del Cabo for a couples trip, a wedding, just a relaxing weekend away. We will be back!

Wonderful stay very personalized. Exceptional grounds. The colors are unreal. The rooms are updated and lovely. The food is fresh and delicious! The pool and beach chairs always clean and set up perfectly. The tiki torches lined the beach at night. Victor, Cesal and Sergio at the restaurant gave exception service our whole stay! Thanks for the memories! Cheers

As always, Laura, it's highly gratifying to learn that yet another first-time guest has become enamored with our style and brand of boutique vacations. Compared to larger resorts, little details are much more pronounced at Mar del Cabo, leaving observant travelers like yourselves a greater fulfillment when admiring the surrounding beauty and the cherished company that we find by our side. Laura, we look forward to preparing for you our now famous huevos rancheros on your next arrival, and until then, the staff and I continue to place ourselves at your faithful service. Thank you!

My husband and I stayed at Mar Del Cabo for 3 nights to celebrate my birthday and loved loved loved it! Although sandwiched between 2 huge resorts (one being it's sister property, Grand Velas), it manages to maintain such a relaxed sweetness. As others have said, the grounds and views are beautiful and the food/drinks fantastic but what sets this little gem apart is the staff. We entered our room (Room 4 has a full ocean view and is incredible!) and found a beautiful little birthday cake waiting for usl. Shout outs to Victor, Cesai, and Antoinio at the restaruant and Paola (and another gentleman whose name we can't recall-sorry!) at the front desk. Although the hotel is certainly not inexpensive, it's a bargain compared to other places on the beach. We loved that it wasn't all-inclusive and could grab an Uber and go to restaurants such as Flora Farms, El Farallon at the Waldorf, and Jazz on the Rocks or go into the town of San Jose del Cabo (Cabo San Lucas is a nightmare!) OR just stay at the hotel, relax and enjoy the hotel's amazing restaurant and have fresh ceviche' and seafood tacos served pool or beachside. Heavenly! We also loved taking morning walks on the beach and just past the Grand Velas are little rocky coves we had all to ourselves. Although you can't swim in the sea in Cabo because it's too rough (although we took a snorkeling/kayaking trip that was fun), you can still dip your feet in the water as the waves crash onto the sand. We will definitely return!

First, allow me to congratulate you on your birthday celebrations and salute you for choosing Mar del Cabo as the setting in which to make your wonderful event a reality. I'm glad that you consider our boutique hotel to project a "relaxed sweetness:" it's a description I've never heard of before, but it sounds truly marvelous. That sweetness you sensed consisted of long walks on the beach, delicious cuisine, and some special alone time that allowed you and your husband to reminisce on all the loving moments that brought you to this moment. All of this should be shared at an alluringly slow pace, allowing yourselves to savor the moment in its entirety. We hope that the beautiful memories of this trip inspire you to make the trip from Chicago and relive all the beauty and "relaxed sweetness" that one can only find at Mar del Cabo. As always, we place ourselves at your faithful service, GERARDO VELA DIRECTOR GENERAL MAR DEL CABO

My boyfriend and I loved our stay at Mar Del Cabo. It was quiet when we arrived and we got great service at the restaurant on our first night. The fish tacos are the best I had the whole trip (and I ordered them everywhere we went, lol). The concierge was so helpful with all of my requests, including recommendations for where to watch a very important soccer game (if you find yourself in the same boat, I suggest Agua Salada, btw). We went to Grand Velas resort next door for the breakfast buffet 3 days in a row because it was so good. The resort also looked really nice for those interested in doing a day pass or spa visit. I liked that the hotel was halfway in between the 2 Cabos so we could easily access both. We took Ubers most of the time and it was usually between $10-15 to get into town.

Thank you so much, Zara, for selecting Mar del Cabo as your vacation setting and sharing your wonderful comments and tips on the entire experience. We are pleased that you enjoyed the great service of your concierge, our famous fish tacos, and of course, the very convenient location of being easily accessible to both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. And having our big brother, Grand Velas Los Cabos, just a few meters away, adds immensely to your list of things to do along this glorious stretch of beach. We hope that the wonderful memories of this occasion inspire you both to make a return visit. Until then, we continue to place ourselves at your service for all your future vacation needs. Take care, GERARDO VELA DIRECTOR GENERAL MAR DEL CABO

On behalf of the talented women and men who helped create such a beautiful wedding, I thank you for selecting Mar del Cabo as your ideal setting to tie the knot. Being a part of Velas Resorts and having our big brother, Grand Velas Los Cabos, right next door means that there are no limits to what we can offer. The size and quaintness of our hotel is a splendid alternative to the much larger resorts as it gives you the intimacy and privacy to allow the wedding party to make themselves feel comfortable and at ease. Congratulations to Linzie and Ryan on their great new journey, and a big thank you to all the attendees that traveled with you to be a part of it all. It truly was a beautiful event, and I`m sure that every magical moment will live on in your dreams for a long time. GERARDO VELA DIRECTOR GENERAL MAR DEL CABO

We had a great experience! The view was beautiful, food was great, all of staff and employees were very helpful and accommodating. This was our first destination wedding, most of the wedding guests stayed at Mar del Cabo. It was perfect for the group to hang out and enjoy time with the bride and groom in a boutique setting.

Thanks to Victor and his staff at the Encanto Restaurante at Mar Del Cabo for making my days here brighter! Victor is super attentive and knowledgable about what is good to eat and offered consistent outstanding customer service everyday I ate there. When I first arrived, he greeted me and let me pick the best spot to be seated with the nicest Views. Very sweet and kind staff! Thank you for an enjoyable experience!

Thank you for sharing your wonderful comments on your vacation with us at Mar del Cabo, particularly on your time spent at our famous eatery, Encanto Restaurant. The staff and crew of Mar del Cabo are inspired to attend to their guests' wishes with a good portion of elegance and tact. Victor and his colleagues are some of the best waiters in the region as they are considered Los Cabos' stars of casual dining. They are renowned for their timely recommendations, efficient service, warm smiles, and always a kind word or two. Moments of great food, cold drinks, and fresh air at our Encanto Restaurant are a welcomed respite from the pool and the beach, or even upon a return from a long day of sightseeing. We look forward to hosting you again at your earliest convenience, where you can allow the flow of the hotel, and the moment, to beautifully satiate your senses. Take care, GERARDO VELA DIRECTOR GENERAL MAR DEL CABO

We greatly enjoyed 1 week at Mar Del Cabo in the Penthouse. Room was large and nicely decorated. Kitchen was minimally stocked so don't plan on doing much cooking, but it was great having a fridge and microwave! You really need to upgrade to a room with a view, close to the beach as a majority of rooms have no view or are up near the road. The food & service at the pool/beach and restaurant was exceptional. The pool and beach were both quiet and relaxing (no screaming kids like the mega resorts!). The food gets a bit redundant as there is just one lunch/dinner menu. So if you are there for more than a few days, but the chef did try and come up with some daily specials to help or make plans to go elsewhere for dinner.

Very pretty and peaceful resort with great service. It feels tucked away and private. The beach here is very nice with great lounge area and the rock outcropping is dramatic and pretty. They put a lot of effort into the stairs from the street level reception down to the beach, but since you use it several times a day, you’ll love the flowers and the detailed tile work.
