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.

    Great solo vacation

    I stayed for 6 nights by myself. It was my first time visiting Cabo and I was a bit anxious. I had a wonderful time and the 6 days there helped me get much need relaxation and zen. The resort is beautiful, the rooms clean and the food was delicious but the staff is what made it a great visit. Alejandro was very nice upon checkin/checkout and remembered my name during the stay. Shout-out to Lupita and Oscar at the consierge. I was trying to figure out how I can snorkel on some of the nearby beaches without going on a boat trip (due to easily getting sea sick). Lupita went out of her way to find the best option for me that was not too expensive. She made sure I can call them in case I needed help when I was out by myself. As a result, I had the best time on Santa Maria and Chileno. I would not have gone out of the resort if it was not for you! Thank you, Lupita!  I liked the food in most restaurants. La Casona was my favorite and I ended up going there a few times. Great food and amazing service.! My only recommendation for the resort is to make some efforts to limit the amount of single use plastic in the resort. None of the restaurants offered water that did not come in a plastic bottle. After I explained my effort to reduce my use of plastic, I was able to get water in a glass ( in all apart from Bella California where there no option and I ended up with no water). Other ideas that will make this an even better resort for other environmentally consious travellers - option to opt out of plastic water bottles in the room (I had accumulated 8 unopened bottles by the end of my stay), option to easily opt out of daily change of bed sheets/towels, paper take out containers in the restaurants, reusable cups at the pool, water fountains at the pools/throughout the resort. I hope you can implement some of these to the benefit of the nature in Cabo and Mexico. I plan to come back again with my family. Again, thank you to all the staff for making my trip so relaxing!

    My 50th Birthday!

    I want to thank the staff at Villa La Estancia for making my birthday vacation so memorable. Customer service was excellent, the staff were welcoming, professional and very accommodating. I want to thank the hotel manager, Gustavo for making sure our needs were met. I want to especially thank Isabella and Oliver for going over and beyond to help make my birthday so special. They had the bed room beautifully decorated with balloons, streamers and happy birthday wishes with tiny colored rocks. Every night we came home to a complimentary birthday dessert and on my last night, Isabella came over with a birthday gift. I was so touched by her thoughtfulness that she brought me to tears. I also want to that Francisco and his team at the swim up pool bar, food and cocktails were great. Special thanks to Rojelio and Rosendo at La Casona restaurant for making our last dinner special as well. All staff were friendly, acknowledged us and made eye contact. Very hard working staff. The greeters at the door who helped with our bags were also very friendly, smiled and made conversation every time. The grounds were nicely manicured and clean. Our room was beautiful, we stayed in a 1 bedroom suite, very comfortable, travertine throughout, with a stunning ocean front view, balcony was also lovely. I will always remember my special birthday, we plan to definitely return soon. Thank you again.

    Feels like HOME!

    I recently stayed at Villa la Estancia and it was nothing short of spectacular!!  Giovanni (who I rented through) and his staff were helpful and so friendly and really made my stay feel like I was a personal guest of theirs!  The condo itself (2502) is absolutely beautiful and so well maintained, from the gorgeous and colorful headboards, to the extra snuggly blankets, the comfy sofas, the gigantic lounger on the balcony, and everything you could possibly need in the kitchen… this place is perfection!!  The view, oh my goodness, THE VIEW!!  It is inspiring!  It’s what I miss the most now that I am home.  Sitting on the huge lounger and watching the sunrise and then making breakfast and eating it out on the dining table on the balcony and watching the world of Cabo slowly come to life.  The location is perfect… close enough to town that you can walk, but far enough away that you can enjoy some peace and quiet.  The staff at Villa la Estancia are absolutely fantastic and helped to make me feel at home.  I had stayed there about 6 months earlier and Angel (the valet) remembered me and welcomed me with a big smile and a “welcome home”! Also, I truly enjoyed my interactions and conversations with Angel (front desk clerk), Rodrigo (valet), and Vanessa from housekeeping was so sweet and we chatted as she tidied up the condo while I was on my computer getting some work done and I felt immediately like she was a friend! It’s truly a place that feels like home and I think a lot of that is based on the positivity and friendliness of the staff. I’d also like to mention Cristian, José Luis, Alonso, and Ulises... all wonderful people! It is such a special place!  I highly recommend a stay at Villa la Estancia! If you get a chance to stay in Villa 2502 – go for it!!

    Excellent all inclusive resort

    The view of lands end was fabulous. The staff was always very kind and helpful. Everyones English was very good (in case you don't speak Spanish). My only complaint would be the amount of paper work you have to write for each meal. Not a very big deal but something they could improve on. My wife and I had a great time and would recommend.

    Evelyns 50th Birthday

    We arrived in Cabo after a long flight that took us to Denver instead of straight to Cabo! Miserable flight! Then the Taxi took us to the wrong Hotel! We were tired and very disappointed thus far. After finally arriving to the right hotel we found the room not up to what we think we were expecting for luxury Cabo Hotel. The room was facing a garden not ocean, it was small, not exactly the best for such a special occasion. My Girls 50th Birthday Celebration. After talking Manager Gustavo, and desk clerks Oliver and Isabella they assured us they would make it all right! We actually were blown away!!! They took the time to put us in one of the most beautiful rooms facing the ocean, and then without being asked pre-decorated the room bed with a beautiful display of balloons and happy birthday on the bed. Wow could you believe that!!!! And we headed out to have diner and dancing and thinking they went over the top already! There was another surprise and small cake to make our stay even better. I travel the world and stay in some pretty choice hotels, the service at the Villa La Estancia especially from Isabella and Oliver Was impeccable and we will never forget how the two of them made us feel like we belonged. Thanks you for being there for us and make our week in Cabo so memorable and eventful It is much appreciated!! Love this place!
