Hotel Overview

2019 Resort Added Values! 
Extra Value: Bottle of wine, fresh fruit, handmade beach bag, and 15% off Desert Spa personal services (only valid in One and Two-bedroom Suites; minimum 4 night stay). 

The idyllic retreat of your dreams awaits at Villa La Estancia in Los Cabos, Mexico, known for its unparalleled service, sophisticated style, and tranquil setting. Gaze at the sun-drenched gardens and handsomely constructed Spanish Colonial architecture as you enter the grand lobby. Located on scenic Medano Beach near sister property Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa, this exclusive resort prides itself on offering magnificence amidst a relaxed setting. 

All deluxe suite villas are furnished in an elegant Spanish Colonial and Hacienda style and feature spacious, well-appointed accommodations, generous amenities, private balconies, and full spa bathrooms. Add in the lushly landscaped gardens, decadent Desert Spa, top-notch gourmet cuisine, and unparalleled hospitality and you have a recipe for the ideal luxury getaway. 

The restaurants offer traditional Mexican dishes like tacos and hearty enchiladas, but the menus also run far deeper. Those with discerning taste can experience fine, exotic cuisine prepared by expertly trained chefs, like the catch of the day straight from the Sea of Cortes. Other guests indulge in home-away-from-home favorites like fresh green salads and homemade sandwiches. Whatever you wish for, it is here. 

It's a tough choice between reclining beside the lagoon-style, multi-level pool, building sandcastles on the beach, snorkeling in turquoise blue waters, or shopping along Boulevard Marina. You can do it all. Or simply do nothing at all. 

Note: Water based activities are cancelled until further notice.

    Beautiful resort with excellent staff

    We stayed at Villa La Estancia for 7 days. My wife and I came with our 7 month old daughter and my mother and we stayed in a 2 bdrm suite. We were nervous as this was our first time traveling with a toddler, but the staff was absolutely amazing. The views are incredible. We saw whales almost everyday, and between Estancia, Arco and Palmar, there was plenty to do on the property. Villa La Estancia is much quieter than the other 2 resorts, but that's part of the charm. The pool is warm, and it's a quick drive to Walmart for all of the things we needed. Although all of the staff were great, we had a couple of people who went above and beyond. First, Nayeli who served us everyday next to the pool was outstanding. She remembered us every day and loved seeing our daughter. Absolutely A++ service. Next was Angel in the valet. He greeted us with a smile every day and was fun to talk to. Next was Victor at La Casona. We ate a few times and Victor was our server every time. My wife loved the chocolate lava cake so we stopped for desert. On our last night, Victor brought it up to our room for us. That was amazing since we couldn't sit in the restaurant with a fussy baby, so this was a huge plus. Thank you Victor. Overall it was a wonderful stay and we can't wait to come back. Muchas gracias. - Lorraine, Patrick, Tracey, and baby Reegan

    Awesome Anniversary Trip deserving of 10 stars

    Villa La Estancia is the place to go, especially for an anniversary or birthday... where do is start? My husband and I celebrated our 27th Anniversary and Valentine’s Day...and sadly left my husband’s card at home!! Well I spoke to Isabelle the Concierge (yes VLE has a Concierge like a 5 Star Resort.) Isabelle proceeds to search for Anniversary cards and Valentine’s Day cards in English which proved to be impossible, so she asks , “would you mind if I hand make a card for you?” I was blown away! Hand make a card? Well, she did! I emailed her pics and she made an AMAZING card with an envelope which had the a pretty stamped crest. Then.... when we arrive home from our anniversary dinner our bed was covered hearts made of towels and fresh rose petals. Plus, there was a bottle champagne on ice with two glasses on the table.. Thank you super Concierges Isabelle and Lupita for making our Anniversary and Valentine’s Day so special and amazing. Villa La Estancia is not only beautiful, but their service is above and beyond magnificent! Yes, I highly recommend VLE. I have stayed a many resorts, but in all my years of travel, I’ve never experienced such care and kindness. Plus, their Villas are huge, clean and gorgeous, grounds have restaurants, a spa next door, pools and jacuzzis. Their location right on beautiful Medano Bay beach, close to the center of Cabo is very convenient. A 10 star experience

    Can’t wait to go back!

    My husband had a business trip here last week and I joined him for 6 days. Our room was absolutely perfect with a full kitchen, separate bedroom, dining area, living room, spa-like bathroom, and enormous balcony with pool and sea views. There was another bedroom with 2 beds, couch, TV, and a full bath with balcony access, but we were not using it. My only 2 complaints would be the very low water pressure in the shower and the elevator closest to our room was being repaired the whole week. The pool was great and we spent a lot of time in one of the many jacuzzis with friends. Poolside service for food and drinks was nice as was the market/deli on property to pick up a latte every morning or lunch in the afternoon. Everyone on staff was super friendly and helpful. They easily booked tours for us on the spot multiple times. They organized a dinner for our large group on the beach one night, and the food was delicious. We needed a cake for a retirement celebration and they delivered a very nice, very tasty one. Would love to go back and take our family with us!

    Wonderful service everywhere!

    Our third stay at La Estancia in the past seven years and we are never disappointed with the helpful and efficient service: Tere and Roberto by the pool, Jose the bellman, and Vlad our concierge in the penthouse. Everyone is so eager to help! La Estancia is a gorgeous facility and the expansive pool is pure pleasure. Love this piece of paradise in Cabo!

    Awesome anniversary trip - loved the hotel & restaurants

    We had an amazing trip to celebrate our 20th anniversary at Villa La Estancia. Location was perfect as you could walk down the beach to town or a 20 minute walk by road. Also easy to get a water taxi right outside to go to Lover’s Beach by the Arch. Great view of the Arch. We booked through Delta Vacations and stayed in a 1 BR room and did the limited inclusive food package. The room was very nice, spacious and clean. It also had a lot of dresser and closet space which I love as I like to unpack my suitcase. Bed was very comfortable. Also nice to have a full kitchen. Service was very good at the pool and we never had trouble finding an open lounge chair. It was a little cold when we were there so appreciated that they had five hot tubs. Staff (especially Lupita, our concierge and Pascual, our waiter at La Casona) really went out of the way to make our anniversary trip special from coming back the last night to champagne in our room and the bed decorated with “Happy Anniversary” to an amazing dessert as a surprise with our first dinner. We thought the meal plan was worth it for what it cost through Delta Vacation as the food was fantastic everywhere we ate. We had an amazing buffet breakfast every day at El Patron next door with made to order omelette, sopas and quesadillas. Lunch and dinner were also excellent, much better than a typical all inclusive. La Casona and El Carbon were our favorites.
