One of the most visually distinctive hotels in Mexico, the "hypermodern" Viceroy Los Cabos "is a departure from the typical hacienda vibe of so many Cabo resorts" (Travel + Leisure). The many reflecting pools and water features surround the buildings and restaurants, making it feel like the Sea of Cortez is right at every guest's doorstep.
Guest rooms and suites are chic, spacious (starting at 595 square feet) and feature floor-to-ceiling windows, along with minimalist details like floating wood shelves and custom furniture. Each has a private terrace with Jacuzzi and pool or ocean views. There's also 65-inch smart TVs in each room, USB chargers and free Wi-Fi; color-changing lighting to match your mood; soaking tubs and rainfall showers in the bathrooms; and Nespresso machines for your morning coffee.
Of the four on-site restaurants, the most atmospheric is Nido, nestled in a nest-like lattice structure that appears to float on water and serving globally inspired ceviches and dozens of pisco-based cocktails. The Cielomar rooftop lounge serves seafood and wood-fired pizzas alongside cocktails featuring ingredients like grilled pineapple and black truffles, while the Otro Bar features a daily "Hi-Ball" happy hour each evening.
Along with a few hundred feet of beachfront, the hotel has four pools, including an infinity-edge beach pool and a rooftop pool reserved for guests over the age of 18. There's also a fitness center, a full-service spa, a kids club and an on-site movie theater. For those who feel like exploring beyond the resort, downtown San Jose del Cabo is just 10 minutes from the hotel by car, while downtown Cabo San Lucas is 30 minutes away.
