San Jose del Cabo, Los Cabos, Mexico

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Directly on a beautiful, private beach
  • Three huge, beautiful infinity pools
  • A delicious gourmet restaurant, Palapa-style poolside cafe, and handy market deli
  • Good freebies: Wi-Fi, parking, exercise classes
  • Chic and modern decor, with an airy feel throughout
  • Excellent full-service spa
  • Well-equipped fitness center with cardio machines, weights, and a yoga room

Cons

  • Beach is not swim-friendly
  • Not within walking distance to town

Bottom Line

Cabo Azul Resort offers a departure from Los Cabos' typical party scene, with a location outside the more authentic and subdued San Jose del Cabo, and a laid-back, welcoming atmosphere. Although a taxi or bus is necessary to visit San Jose del Cabo or Cabo San Lucas, some may appreciate the quieter atmosphere. The 144 villa-style rooms come with modern amenities, such as stainless steel kitchen appliances and flat-screen TVs, as well as casually elegant decor (especially nice touches include airy linens draped over the bed headboards, wooden lanterns, and bamboo-covered ceilings). As for the rest of the resort, it's impressive from all angles as well, featuring a three-level infinity pool, quaint outdoor fire pits, and tasty restaurants.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On a somewhat busy road dotted with hotels, not much is within walking distance except for some low-key attractions, like the estuary

On the outskirts of San Jose del Cabo, the immediate area doesn't offer too much within walking distance -- the road it's located on is mostly dotted with various hotels. The area, much more low-key than downtown Cabo San Lucas or even downtown San Jose del Cabo, offers a more relaxed pace. For example, one of the closest attractions within walking distance is the San Jose Estuary, just a 10-minute walk east, which is a great spot for kayaking, walking, and bird watching.

Close to the party-hearty area of Cabos San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo is the quainter, historic answer to a beach vacation in Los Cabos. The waters are rough and there's less of a nightlife, but the area retains its Mexican flair, and features numerous restaurants and galleries. It is also close to the airport.

  • 15-minute drive to Los Cabos International Airport
  • 10-minute walk to San Jose Estuary
  • 5-minute drive to downtown San Jose del Cabo
  • 10-minute drive to Los Cabos Port
  • 30-minute drive to Medano Beach, known for its calm waters and packed beaches
  • 30-minute drive to downtown Cabo's party spots
  • 35-minute drive to great views of Land's End, a picturesque rock formation on the coast
