Sheraton Grand Los Cabos Hacienda del Mar
Located just 30 minutes outside of Cabo San Lucas is the Sheraton Grand Los Cabos Hacienda del Mar Resort, which features a gorgeous infinity pool, several dining options, and of course, endless ocean views from your room.
We spent 4 days and 3 nights on the resort experiencing their weekly night market, spa options, cooking class, and of course, sunshine and pool time. If you haven’t been to Cabo yet, let me just tell you that the weather is always perfect and the sunrise/sunsets are beautiful. I always love waking up to the sunrise around 6:30AM and watch the sunset during dinner, which is around 7:50PM.
While we were on a FAM trip (a press trip for influencers to get acquainted with the hotel), we did also get a good amount of free time, which allowed KSOLE and I time to truly immerse ourselves in the resort experience. There were three specific things that I particularly liked about the Sheraton Grand Los Cabos Resort, which made our experience more enjoyable.
First off, Starbucks is on-site with a full service menu. You also get daily Starbucks vouchers for a tall size (black) coffee. Starbucks coffee is available for room service too and room service is offered 24 hours. Secondly, the rooms are called villas and there are also timeshare properties on the resort. However, we didn’t find the place to be too crowded at any point in time, which was great. The property is pretty large and spaced out well, so you truly get to relax without being bothered.
As far as room size goes, our villa was spacious with a great ocean view, shower and jacuzzi tub, large closet, and balcony. The bed was comfy and the only thing that I didn’t like was that the floor was tiled, and there weren’t any slippers offered in the room. You have to call housekeeping and ask them for a pair, which isn’t a huge deal but I found with tiled floors, it gets dirty really fast. Other than that, the room was great and you can view all the options here.
Also, check out their speciality suites, which are available for large parties.
Lastly, Sheraton Grand Los Cabos’s spa courtyard is gorgeous and offers a co-ed jacuzzi and two cold pools. The waterfall adds to the overall ambience of relaxation and peacefulness, which is perfect after a aromatherapy massage. The only thing I regret was not being able to extend my 50-minute massage to 80-minutes, but the massage itself was amazing.
While we loved all the amenities of the resort, we also enjoyed a couple of offsite activities such as luxury sailing with Cabo Adventures and an exclusive preview of the Sheraton’s cousin property, Solaz, which is now open. In addition to the Solaz tour, we were treated to an intimate dinner with Chef Patron Emanuele Olivero of La Deriva restaurant. I don’t remember how many dishes were exactly served but it felt like a 12-course dinner with all the food that was served. Everything was cooked to perfection and while the salt rock fish, beef filet, steak, and salmon were all mouthwatering, my favorite part of the meal was the homemade (vegan) Nutella. I and Megan literally ate two bowls of straight Nutella with the happiest smiles on our faces.
Of course, if you’re not looking to pay $30 (USD) for a taxi into town to explore around, you can find plenty to do on the resort too. We did a cooking course, in which we were taught how to make ceviche. We ate our way through the resort's many dining options, and there's a weekly night market in the courtyard of the resort, which features live music and fresh off the grill meats.
By the end of the trip, we’ve all ate twice our weight and were a few shades darker, but I cannot complain. We had the best time and Cabo always has a special place in my heart, so whenever I get a chance to visit, I take it.
Thank you Sheraton Grand Los Cabos, Iki, and Kerri for the perfect weekend escape!
