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.

    Excellent First Trip to Cabo

    Our family of four with two teenage sons thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Estancia with access to the other two sister resorts: Palmar (bright, bustling and busy) and Arcos (medium activity level). Villa Estancia was the quietest. We booked a two-bedroom/ three bath garden view unit but had a spectacular view of the ocean. The unit was spacious with a full kitchen, laundry, dining and living areas, three televisions, and a huge balcony and a separate “wing” with comfortable queen beds. Everything functioned perfectly. All of the staff were hospitable and welcoming. We chose the all-inclusive (alcohol not included) for the ease of feeding our hungry boys. Expect to tip on both the inclusive food service and drinks. Three of the restaurants (La Casona, Neptune, and El Patron) far surpassed expectations for ambiance, preparation of food, and quality of service. We splurged on a promotion for a couples massage. The facilities were relaxing and beautiful and we had no complaints. It’s within walking distance of the marina, but the steep angle of the beach and rough sand could be challenging for some. The beach in front of the resort has a rough shore break that can be accessed by most swimmers early in the morning but is only for experienced ones in the afternoon. My husband and sons enjoyed the waves for hours daily. I preferred swimming the waters closer to the marina but was happy to spend most of our time in a quiet area. We hope to be back again!

    Spectacular vacation spot

    We cant say enough about this resort. They made our family vacation a great experience in Cabo. We comprised of 2 adults, a 3 year old and a 1 year old. This is a family oriented resort. All restaurants offered meals for the kids which was nice. The service from a week before arrival to our day of check out was phenomenal. The staff was excellent from housekeeping to the concierge. They all made us feel welcome and did everything to ensure we had a positive experience. The staff at La Casona restaurant took care of us every morning.We cant say enough about them. Thank you Angela, Gloria, Luz, Fredy and Jesus. Sebastian the pool concierge thanks for taking care of us as well. We cant wait to try La Estancia in Riveria Nayarit based on our Cabo experience. Than you all from the Heywards.

    We were there to attend our grandsons wedding

    There are various configurations I stayed in a three bedroom suite. Master with a whirlpool tube as well as a walk in shower. A common space divides the master suite from the double queen suite. There is a bath room in each zone. The common area includes a full kitchen with all necessities including small appliances, a large refrigerator, dishwasher and close washer and dryer. Everything worked. The resort has been around for a while, There were several problems, that should have been caught during make ready between occupants, however when notified the concierge ensured they were taken care of in an expeditious manner. Lupita was the concierge and was extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. The entire resort staff was also opening doors greeting you each day. My pictures do not show the extent of the grounds and views, the resort web site does and it is a true representation.

    Fantastic Resort

    I cannot say enough good things about this place. From the time we booked our stay until we checked out the staff here could not have done anything more to make our vacation more incredible. The resort is beautiful, the villa was fantastic and every member of the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back!

    We just got back last Saturday after spending a week there. We’ve returned here time and again due to its beauty, great accommodations and wonderful employees. We return to relax at the pools with its friendly and excellent poolside service from Sebastian and Angel who always assisted with the towels and setting up of our lounge chairs and umbrella or two! They make you feel like family. The poolside food and drinks are very good too. This time my luggage was lost on arrival at the airport and the resort concierge Isabella was instrumental in getting my luggage with minimal assistance from me. It helped relieve the stress I was already under the circumstances. Highly recommend La Casona restaurant on the property. The gym was also updated with new equipment and my husband enjoyed his daily workout. Every employee you run into from the bellmen (we’ve known Angel for many years), front desk, housekeeping, landscape maintenance and security—they all have a smile and say hello and make you feel welcome and at home. Can’t wait to return next year!
