Mexico Trip Recap: Hilton Los Cabos Resort

12/07/2016 Whitney Watt 1 Comments


During my recent trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, my family and I stayed at the Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort, one of my favorite Hiltons ever. From service and rooms to dining options and convenience, it's the perfect place to stay while in Cabo. It's also only a short 10-15 minute drive away from the city center.


Situated right on the coastline, Hilton Los Cabos is a beautiful property:


Having being recently renovated after a hurricane hit years ago, you notice the property's beauty right when you walk into the outdoor entrance.


This was our second time staying at the resort and this time we had the luxury of staying in their Presidential Suite, which we were given a great discount on. We were welcomed to their Vista Club (exclusive only to some staying at the Hilton) and were thoroughly informed about the features we could use and special advantages we had. There was a special Vista Club room with free drinks and food available at several times of the day. We also got our own poolside cabana bed and chairs with a great view.


I can't continue talking about this amazing Hilton without going into detail on the spacious and breathtaking Presidential Suite. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves:





Private jacuzzi on one of the balconies




We were welcomed with a bottle of tequila and snacks:


We also got a special turndown service nightly, where we got to choose a preferred turndown aromatherapy blend:


While there I made sure to make use of every room and outdoor space, taking the time out to enjoy the beauty of the suite. I also got in plenty of swim and relax time and visited the main infinity pool daily, which always felt to be at the perfect temperature. The pool was steps away from our private cabana:


They had a second pool on another side of the hotel as well.




When I got tired of the pool, I could walk down the path to the beach (also steps away) and experience the ocean.


While staying at the Hilton, we ate some delicious food and sampled many exotic drinks and varieties of tequila, even doing a tequila tasting experience there at their main bar Azul after arriving at the resort. Our waiter and tequila expert gave us a detailed history on the Mexican culture's prized tequila and the blue agave it originates from, letting us sample mezcal, blanco, reposado, and anejo tequila.


My favorites were the Frida Kahlo and the Don Julio 1942. I love the smoothness. At the end of our tasting we were given some fresh ceviche, guacamole and chips:


Later that evening we had complimentary snacks and drinks in the Vista Club room.


We had some tasty empanadas and of course more tequila.

By dinner time we were tired but ready to try something new at one of the hotel's restaurants - El Meson. I had the tamale trio:


The next morning, after getting a very peaceful and relaxing night of rest, we grabbed breakfast at their morning buffet. So many options to choose from.

Fish tacos from Desperados

After spending the morning in the city snorkeling, we grabbed lunch at Desperados in downtown Cabo. I got the fried fish tacos and we had fresh guacamole made table side. Food was good as usual.

Fettucine de mare

For dinner that night we ordered room service. Everyone got something different and I decided to have the fettuccine de mare with scallops and shrimp. It was delicious - I finished my plate!



The next day, before checking out of the resort we ordered a few drinks poolside - I had a strawberry mojito. The pool staff was very attentive and accommodating, they brought us water, cold towels and chips with guacamole to snack on. I love enjoyed my last moments at the resort by taking one last dip in the pool and laying in the cabana with the curtains drawn to shield the sun.



My time at the resort was just a short extended weekend stay, but I already can't wait to return and spend a full weekend there. If you are ever in Cabo, please look into the Hilton Los Cabos, even their standard rooms are beautiful and offer great views. You won't be disappointed!

I would like to send out a special thanks to Alfredo from the Hilton Los Cabos staff, who extended a great discount to us for the duration of our stay!
