Luxe Mexican-Inspired Accommodations
Home to a wide array of villa accommodations, Hacienda del Mar has something to suit everyone’s needs. Here you’ll find double queen and king guest rooms, one-bedroom suites, and three- or four-bedroom double-level suites. There are also options for garden views, ocean views, and oceanfront rooms. All of these accommodations feature modern Mexican-inspired decor, a balcony or terrace, a marble bathroom, a mini-bar or kitchenette, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Meanwhile, in the larger suites, additional amenities are available, such as dinettes, spacious living areas, multiple bathrooms, as well as elegant spiral staircases.
In addition to this, guests to the resort have access to a number of on-site amenities, including a fitness center, convenience store, business center, laundry facilities, on-site car rental, and personalized concierge service. There are also a variety of outdoor swimming pools on the property available for guest use year-round. Among these you’ll find an infinity pool, an activity pool, and a swim-up bar, all designed with traditional Mexican-inspired architecture in mind.
The Cactus Spa
To further elevate guests’ experience, Hacienda del Mar is also home to a full-service spa, The Cactus Spa. Exuding quiet tranquility, this wellness center offers a plethora of spa treatments and packages, including therapeutic massages, facials, body wraps, salt scrubs, manicures, pedicures, waxing services, make-up services, and hair care. On top of this, the spa provides a number of special packages that are inspired by traditional Mexican practices. For example, there are stretching and alignment treatments that employ the use of rebozos, which are long pieces of traditional hand-woven cloth. There are also facials that include a mixture of native Mexican herbs. And there are even certain packages that involve a bit of Mexican tequila – to help loosen you up!
Outside of these packages, the spa provides a number of additional amenities that spa guests can take advantage of. There are sauna rooms, steam rooms, relaxation spaces, as well as hot and cold jacuzzi tubs that are available for use on the day of your spa treatment. While most treatments take place within the spa, arrangements can also be made for those who’d prefer to receive a massage in their hotel room.
All-Inclusive Dining Options
Besides its luxurious accommodations and amenities, Hacienda del Mar also offers several dining options. Within the resort, you’ll find four restaurants, four snack bars, a tequila bar, and, of course, room service. While all of these establishments are worth checking out, the most popular and iconic is, without a doubt, Pitahayas Restaurant. Opened in 1995, this original restaurant offers Pacific Coast cuisine that combines local and imported products to create a truly unique culinary experience.
Another popular option for your consideration is De Cortez Grillhouse, a Five Star Diamond restaurant that overlooks the ocean and serves up authentic grilled dishes. And if views are an important part of your dining experience, then you’ll also want to visit Tomatoes Restaurant. Situated next to the beach, this restaurant offers incredible ocean views alongside delectable local Mexican cuisine. Other, more casual dining options on the property include El Burro Cansado, which strictly serves Mexican tacos, and Tortugas Snack & Beach Bar where you’ll find a raw bar and fresh sushi.
It goes without saying, but Hacienda del Mar has pretty much anything your taste buds could possibly desire. And the best part about it is that they offer an all-inclusive option, meaning you can eat and drink until your heart’s content without any concerns for the bill!
Of course, no trip to Mexico is complete without at least a few fun tropical activities, and thankfully, Hacienda del Mar offers a plethora of them! There are a number of on-site activities that you can partake in, such as swimming, yoga, Zumba, beach volleyball, bingo, and blackjack. But, even more importantly, Cabo Adventures has several local attractions, activities and tours that you can sign up for either through the concierge service or online with Cabo Adventures.
Some of the most popular activities in the area include snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, rock climbing, hiking, off-roading, zip-lining, sailing, and golfing. There are also a number of marine life experiences for those who’d like to get up close and personal with some of the ocean’s most renowned residences. If you visit during the winter months, there are several opportunities to join whale watching tours. Between December and April specifically, large pods of humpback and gray whales are known to migrate off of the coast of Cabo San Lucas, so this is the perfect time to see them! If you miss that window of opportunity though, don’t worry, there are several dolphin encounters that you can join instead.
An Important Side Note About COVID-19 Requirements
As international travel opens back up and we all excitedly plan out our itineraries, it’s important to remember that there may be additional COVID-related travel requirements in place depending upon where we travel to and from. While Mexico doesn’t currently require any additional documentation, it is important to check prior to leaving for any new mandates, protocols or documentation. Please keep in mind that travel requirements are in flux and have been known to change quickly. To remain informed on the most up-to-date information, be sure to check with local government websites, including the U.S. Department of State.
