Our favourite rooms
Between the suites, villas, casitas and residences, there’s plenty to choose from at Esperanza. All of these stylish abodes boast sea views and authentic Mexican artwork. But if you’re a sucker for a hot tub, especially one on a terrace with an infinity edge, stick to the spa casitas and suites.
Esperanza’s main pool, which overlooks the Sea of Cortez, is bi-level and infinity style. There’s also a separate smaller ‘serene' pool off to the side. Both pools have cushioned lounge chairs and umbrellas plus an assortment of paperbacks to borrow.
Treat your feet to a margarita and your skin to a Corona. The Margarita Medley, which includes a foot and hand massage with lime-scented moisturizer, and the Mexican Beer & Lime Facial, a men’s barbershop tribute that involves steaming hot towels and a massage, are just two of the many unique treatments at Esperanza’s spa. You can even get a seaside massage in a palapa on the beach.
Don’t forget your spandex. The resort offers over 15 complimentary classes a week, including beach boot camp, TRX and yoga.
Fiesta! Every Thursday night Esperanza hosts an authentic Mexican shindig on the oceanfront patio with foods from various regions, live music and fireworks. There’s also an outdoor marketplace with souvenirs, jewellery and other crafts.
Dogs are allowed for a fee of $175 per night, so bring Fido along for some Baja bliss. See more pet-friendly hotels in Los Cabos.
Kids of all ages are welcome at Esperanza, though only one child is allowed per room and the hotel’s main pool is for adults only.
