The Resort at Pedregal is a majestic resort that sits at the spot where the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortéz meet. Every room in this hotel has an ocean view, complete with binoculars for whale-watching, as well as a private plunge pool, a fireplace, and a rain shower. Decorative accents include tasteful local art, such as hand-embroidered pillows, ceramic sculptures, and hand-forged metal light fixtures. On the service side, every guest is assigned a round-the-clock personal concierge. The relatively small number of rooms keeps the vibe intimate, and guests can enjoy a sense of privacy throughout the property.

The Resort at Pedregal feels somewhat private and isolated, thanks to a tunnel that was built to create a dramatic sense of arrival for guests, but it's actually within easy walking, driving, and cycling distance of Cabo San Lucas. The tunnel separates Cabo San Lucas from the Pacific Ocean; when guests arrive, they find themselves exiting the tunnel and entering the hotel's courtyard. The hotel sits on a private beach, where all sorts of water sports and aquatic activities can be enjoyed. For more culturally oriented experiences, guests can head to town for art walks, gallery hopping, or self-guided exploration of the town's main plaza, shops, and other attractions. Hotel staff can assist guests with selecting and booking excursions, which include everything from diving and deep-sea fishing to horseback riding and exploring the desert by dune buggy.

Who it's for: Luxury lovers who always want an ocean view. Our favorite rooms: There are 16 different types of room at the Resort at Pedregal, but our favorite is the one-bedroom ocean view suite, which from the outside looks a bit like a conch shell laid on its side and cut in half. Guests who stay in ocean view suites enjoy a private terrace with awesome views. Get in the kitchen: Foodies can sign up for one or three day cooking classes in Su Cocina or join a farm tour and help harvest ingredients for that evening’s dinner.
