This was my second time in Mexico and I’d only ever heard of Cabo from TV series and Youtube videos. Never in my wildest dreams had I imagined that I’d be able to visit the incredible Arch Mountain that you only ever see Instagram shots of these days, right?
I flew straight in from New York City to Mexico City and had to take a smaller plane towards Cabo (Approx. 3 hour flight) and found myself in a rather dry climate. My surroundings were half dessert, half tumbleweed, which strangely enough is how they depict Mexico to be like in the movies. Fast forward a 40 minute taxi ride and I’m pulling up at what looks like a large industrial slab of concrete. No expectations whatsoever…
Walking towards the main lobby I’m suddenly taken a back with what could be the most beautiful view looking out towards the distance with The arch of Cabo San Lucas in sight.
Welcome drinks are served… A fresh lemongrass aftertaste lingers while I roam around the lobby of what I can already tell is going to be one of my favourite hotels. This ladies and Gentlemen, Is The Cape Hotel situated in Los Cabos, Mexico.
The staff were fluent in both English and Spanish, and extremely friendly and helpful with the check in process along with escorting me to my room upstairs in the main building. I was lucky enough to score a corner room, which, easily, boasts the best view of the bay along with a secluded area for your privacy- the best part was the private Jacuzzi on the balcony. (Can someone pinch me. This felt like I was in my own movie reel- you know those scenic ones directed by Martin Scorsese). The perfect spot to relax, sip on a cocktail and enjoy the sunset with a handsome Mexican.
For dining, The Cape Hotel hosts an excellent Restaurant, The Manta, whose wine collection covets both sides of the entrance wall. Trust me, you won’t go thirsty and I could highly recommend the Guacamole (As always) inserts laughing emoji along with the octopus kebabs.
Whether it was the extremely comfortable linen on the bed or the long day of travelling I fell asleep on impact and woke up to a beautiful blue-skied sun kissed Cabo.
Waking up I could have ordered breakfast in bed but then you miss out on all the food porn downstairs at the breakfast buffet. Catering to all palettes, Mexican to International and diet friendly.
There is so much to do especially being right on the beach front, from jet skiing, surfing, whale watching and parasailing – the list is endless. This is the perfect location for a fun water filled holiday or if you prefer to take it easy, lounge by the pool or at your private Jacuzzi which was one of my favourite things about the hotel, très romantique.
I found Cabo to be very Americanised therefore very accommodating to tourists.
Staying at the hotel was a highlight of my trip to Mexico, from the views to the people, it was a trip that I’ll never forget.
This was my first stay at a Thompson Hotel and I can’t wait to get the chance to explore more of their hotels Nationwide.
