It’s only a two and a half hour direct flight from San Francisco to Cabo San Lucas, Baja California, Mexico. But it feels worlds away with the warm breezes and turquoise water. My husband surprised me with a quick weekend get-away for our anniversary (33 years) with a stay at The Cape in Cabo. Cabo means “cape” in Spanish.
The hotel’s interiors are the perfect mix of warm woods, colorful patterned tile, and modern but comfortable furnishings. Definitely a very “happening” vibe but with friendly, professional service that makes all your travel tensions melt away.
Every room has a view. This was ours from the balcony. The glass doors push back to open up to this! Notice the tile floor. Our balcony also had this comfortable swing. The ocean breeze would make it gently sway.
On our anniversary…
The first night we had a delicious dinner at Manta, the dressier of the hotel’s restaurants, but still with a relaxed feel.
This was our view during dinner…
The lobby is open to the ocean air and there is a pool table and bar.
The next night, I suggested that we have room service to take advantage of our balcony…and it was great. I want to do that again on our next trip there (hopefully someday!). We watched a small wedding ceremony below.
On Sunday, after some time by the pool, we had brunch at the hotel’s more casual restaurant called The Ledge. Even if you stay someplace else in Cabo, I would recommend coming here for brunch or lunch. They had live music.
Howard had the buffet but I wanted…
the fresh ceviche tostadas again (I had them for our first lunch by the pool)!
In fact, in an effort to extend our vacation (and get back on Weight Watchers) I looked up recipes for it. This one seems pretty close…Ceviche Tostadas.
Guess who also loves The Cape in Cabo (and a poolside cabana)?! They are dog-friendly…and basically friendly in general 🙂
THIS IS LIVING!
What a memorable weekend! Check out my Pinterest boards for more travel ideas.
