Its name gives prospective guests a good indication of what to expect from a stay here. Cabo Surf Hotel is a beachside property in San José del Cabo, an area popular among surfers and other outdoor enthusiasts. Located right on the bay, the hotel is ideal for guests who want to dedicate the majority of their vacation time to doing nothing more than relaxing on the sand or swimming languidly in the ocean. The hotel's exterior evokes Southern California's Spanish-inspired architecture, with white stucco walls and a red-tiled roof. Inside, rooms tend toward the simple side, with tile floors, wicker and rattan furniture, and neutral-colored linens. A spa and restaurant are on the premises. For guests who want to learn how to surf, the hotel partners with a local surfing school to offer lessons.

The Cabo Surf Hotel sits in a convenient spot in Los Cabos, just 10 minutes from the action in San José del Cabo and 20 minutes to Cabo San Lucas. Both towns that comprise “Los Cabos” are known for their party-time vibe, but travelers looking for a more laid-back scene can explore the area's art galleries and upscale restaurants. Of course, the region is blessed with beaches and ocean as far as the eye can see, and all sorts of opportunities for outdoor adventure, both soft and hard-core, are available. There's diving, snorkeling, and kayaking, as well as off-roading and exploring by air.
Need to Know
Rooms: 36 rooms. From $265. Check-in: 3 p.m.; check-out: noon. Dining options: Cabo Surf Hotel has one on-site restaurant, the 7 Seas Seafood Grille. Fresh fish and seafood are the specialty items, served at tables with ocean views.

A small gym is available for workouts, though many guests prefer to get their exercise outdoors, whether through surfing or running on the beach. The hotel also offers yoga classes.
