Review Summary



  • Waves at the beach can get rough
  • Meals are expensive (an all-inclusive option is available)
  • Decor is bland

Bottom Line

Villa la Estancia is the high-end hotel in a cluster of three sister resorts, and offers a nice reprieve from the crazy, party hotels Cabo is known for -- the grounds are pristine, the pool's swim-up bar isn't teeming with underaged partiers, and the rooms are large. Decor is a bit bland (although there are at least no typical floral motifs) and meals are expensive, but couples and families tend to enjoy the hotel's serene atmosphere, large suites, and location directly on a beach with calm waters (though the beach can quickly get crowded).

On Medano Beach in Cabo San Lucas

Map of Villa la Estancia

At the southern tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula, Cabo San Lucas -- a beach town on the stretch of coastline collectively known as Los Cabos (The Capes) -- has long been a popular vacation spot for sun-worshipping party seekers. (Hence, the nickname Cabo San Loco.) One of it's most popular beaches is Playa Medano, or Medano Beach, where Villa la Estancia is located.

Popular for it's relatively calm waters, Playa Medano is lined by numerous hotels. The waters are a beautiful turquoise, but the beach is almost always crowded -- with hotel guests, cruise ship revellers, and pushy vendors. Baja Cantina Beachside, a line of bars and restaurants, sits directly on the beach for those looking to embrace the "party-hearty" spirit of Cabo.

  • 40-minute drive to Los Cabos International Airport
  • Right on the beach
  • 2-minute drive to the point where boats leave for the famous Playa del Amor
  • 5-minute drive to downtown Cabo's party spots
  • 5-minute drive to the Marina
  • 5-minute drive to the historic stone church, Iglesia de San Lucas, established in 1730
  • 5-minute drive to Boulevard Marina for shopping
  • 6-minute drive to the Cabo San Lucas Country Club golf course
  • 8-minute drive to great views of Land's End, a picturesque rock formation on the coast
