    the best service I have had in any 5 star hotel.

    All the staff friendly and service oriented. Want to make your visit as amazing as possible and they succeed. high level starting with the veuve cliquot welcome Champagne followed by an essential oil neck massage you know it is going to be good. The resort is spectacular, meticulously clean , the food is outstanding and the drinks are 1st rate. Exceeded my expectations for a all inclusive resort. If you are hoping to go in the ocean though this is not the place for you although the infinity pools are perfect and the waves dramatic. Loves sleeping with the windows open and hearing the ocean and feeling the breeze. Will definitely be going back.

    Upon arrival you'll say, "Yes, this is going to be special."

    Okay, so where am I? Once a destination stops for priests and pirates alike whom voyaged from faraway lands to serve God or pursue their treasures down the southernmost coast of the Baja California peninsula, Cabo San Lucas has something to please everyone. Sportfishing, snorkeling, world-class golf, divine spas, appreciation of fine food, and all agave cocktail are sure to line your itinerary. The real trick is finding the right place to lay your head. In the search for the perfect destination (is there such a thing?), we stumbled across the Grand Velas Los Cabos. Let me tell you, I am a sucker for fancy marketing words on travel websites and the Grand Velas really draws you in from their opening paragraph. Paradise Perfected At Our Cabo Mexico Resort Strikingly located where golden sand beaches embrace turquoise seas, Grand Velas Los Cabos welcomes you to a world of uninhibited luxury and unique style. We've elevated the concept of all inclusive to deliver unforgettable vacations that amaze your senses and stir your soul. What stood out in this amazing journey was the all-inclusive part. One price for the room and all the food and drinks I want? Is that really possible? Would it be like a Sandals Resort where you’re more like a number and regulated to a run-of-the-mill buffet at set times? Or would it be so special like a bespoke suit being made with everything custom tailored to my specific needs? The challenge of finding out invoked my inner Pericue so I caught the quick two-and-a-half-hour flight from Los Angeles to find out. RRIVALS The flight arrived right on time and a quick burst through immigration brings you to the pickup area and the resort’s staff were waiting and ready for a tidy 25 minute drive to the resort. Once you arrive there, the magic begins and quite frankly, you don’t want to leave. The lobby sits on the fifth floor, which is particularly noteworthy because the waiting area to check-in overlooks the magnificent pool and the Sea of Cortez. Within minutes the hospitality greeters welcomed me with a drink, cool towel, and a shoulder and scalp massage. Yes, this is going to be special. I was booked into an Ambassador Suite, which by size alone exceeds expectations. At almost 1,100 square feet it’s bigger than most so-called suites at other properties across the world. The private terrace featured views of the pool and the sea and the afternoon sun lulled me into a heightened state of bliss. Besides the incredible bed that gave me three nights of the best sleep this year, the minibar was stocked with sweets (restocked daily) welcome bottles of artisanal mezcal, and both red and white wines. Honestly, there was no reason to move from the room until dinner time. And I didn’t move at all. WALK ON THE BEACH The waves crashing on the beach call you from every inch of the resort. You simply can’t ignore it. Being from LA, we take the beach for granted, but the immaculate sand was the tranquil solution to the two-mile walk needed to start to burn off dinner. Very few places offer stargazing (more on that later) like here in Cabo San Lucas. After an hour, I was hypnotized by the abundance of starlight and was feeling somewhat lithe once again. Ah, the power of the Mexican beach. Friday 9:00 a.m. BLUE AGAVE MORNINGS It's hard to imagine a more relaxing setting than the pristine setting of the Grand Velas, but this property takes relaxation and well-being up a notch with its pampering spa treatments. The SE Spa features a personalized hydrotherapy ritual replete with their seven-step water ceremony, consisting of: -eucalyptus steam therapy with chromotherapy* -ice room -sensory shower -polar pool and jacuzzi -thermal lounges -sensation pool with various circuits: cascades, bubble bed, multisensory jets, bubble geyser and warm pool * - I must be honest. I didn’t know what science chromotherapy was before visiting the SE Spa. Once my spa valet told me what it was, I had to scramble to find out what it was. It turns out that chromotherapy is the science of using colors to adjust body vibrations to frequencies that result in health and harmony. We learn something new everyday, don’t we? The ritual ended with me in a thermal lounge chair in a heightened state of rest. It was so good for my soul that I forgot I had two blue agave spa treatments scheduled. Without getting into too many superlatives, let’s just say facial and the candle massage are worth a trip back, if only for the pressed dragonfly-shaped flower they give you for luck while washing your feet before your healing session. EQUILA! (Please drink responsibly!) Tequila & Mezcal Tasting with Nestor Jones, Head Mixologist of Grand Velas Los Cabos On the tasting menu: Siete Leguas Tequila Blanco Tequila Ley 925 Reposado Patrón Añejo Casa Dragones Blanco Mezcales de Leyenda Durango Yeah, yeah, I know what you’re thinking when you hear tequila: shot glasses lined up on a bar with limes and salt readying you for a night you’ll soon forget (because of the blackout). After an hour with Nestor Jones, you will definitely have a different perspective. As I quickly learned, tequila is a complex, gentle, and sophisticated spirit that’s intended to be sipped and not power shot. If you consider yourself to be a tequila drinker (beyond doing indiscriminate shots at holiday parties), then there two simple truths that you need to know: 1) Never, ever drink a tequila that doesn’t have “100 Percent Blue Agave,” “100 Percent Agave,” “100 Percent Agave Azul,” on the label. 2) There are three principal selections: blanco (unaged), reposado (aged at least 60 days in oak), and añejo (aged from one to three years in oak). So why 100 percent agave, you ask? Here’s why. Mixto, aka, non-100 percent agave tequila, are fermented with up to 49 percent non-agave sugars, with most producers using cheap cane sugar. When you drink mixto tequila, you’re basically consuming half-tequila, half-other junk. To make matters worse, in order to make mixtos taste and look like 100 percent agave tequila, these producers add ingredients like oak and almond extracts, caramel coloring, sugar syrup, and glycerin. And yes, they are still allowed to call it “tequila.” This, my friends, is how hangovers happen. Fun Fact: You will never actually see the word “mixto” anywhere on the tequila bottle—it just won’t say that it’s 100 percent agave. Buyer beware. STARGAZING Another fun learning experience—a Grand Velas exclusive—awaited me on the same beach where I walked on the first night. Los Cabos Baja Peninsula is considered by NASA to be one of the top 20 locations to research the night-sky. When I arrived at the beach the high-caliber 127mm Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope was ready to help me discover the stars (and planets and constellations and nebula). We scoped Mars, Saturn, the Milky Way, and Zodiac Signs while learning about the Mayan Calendar and Native American moons. LAST HOURS My three o’clock flight meant leaving the resort at noon, so time was of the essence to soak in every last minute. I broke the cardinal rule of vacation and got up early to watch the sunrise, have breakfast at the finest buffet in Mexico at Azul next to the water, and walk with the horses on the beach. -- All in all, it was easy to see why the Grand Velas is undeniably the all-inclusive trailblazer and among the preeminent resorts in the world.

    Incredible Wedding Weekend

    I can’t say enough wonderful things about this hotel. The food was outrageously good and the resort amenities were incredible. 3 tiered infinity pools with an adult pool and kid pools overlooking the ocean. Pool bars and sitting areas in the pools. This was the best all inclusive hotel I have ever been to. The service was outstanding from the glasses of champagne and massages at check to the 24hr room service. The rooms are very large and we had a plunge pool on our balcony. The food was delicious especially the breakfast and lunch buffet at Azul. I’ll be going back for sure.

The service is unlike anything else you have experienced which is rivaled by the amazing cuisine. Not to mention the fabulous grounds and amazing views! We already can't wait to go back!
