HOTEL OVERVIEWThis resort is the ideal sanctuary of refined luxury, tranquillity and adventure.

English is the primary language spoken at the resort. Staff members are fluent in both English and Spanish. This part of Mexico enjoys sunshine most of the year, and the weather in Los Cabos is very comfortable with most days filled with warm sunshine and low humidity. Average highs range from the mid-70s in the winter months, to the mid-90s in the summer months when humidity can also be higher. The peso is the official currency of Mexico.
