“It’s behind El Arco and closest to the Rock”

“It’s behind El Arco and closest to the Rock”

So it’s in a place where all other Cabo visitors have to rent a boat to experience it!

It’s no secret, Los Cabos, Mexico is one of my absolute favorite destinations (both for business and leisure… my first trip there was for work!). One of the more impressive hotels along the beachfront of the Pacific is the Grand Solmar Lands End Resort and Hotel. This all-suite property has all the amenities of a large resort while offering personalized service that feels like a boutique hotel. Grand Solmar is an all-inclusive optional resort that offers a food pre-stocking service if you’d prefer to prepare meals or have someone else fix them from your room’s kitchen. 

The Rooms

Suites range in size from 737 square feet to 1,248 square feet, all with full kitchens and dining areas. And for the vacation of a lifetime, there’s also a four-bedroom penthouse with a 6,232-square-foot suite, five bathrooms and a beachfront private pool with an adjoining Jacuzzi. I got to hang out there for a happy hour reception in June. Imagine 35 and 40 year-olds giddily peeking around corners and smelling Bvlgari soaps like 12-year-olds! Us kids had a good time!

The Food

A gorgeous room with a full kitchen that’s pre-stocked with all my faves is really enticing but I usually don’t want to cook while I’m on vacation or traveling for work, but you have to admit it’s pretty cool. One problem I have is I order up a lot of things I’d only wish I had at home! For those who are lazy (er, more relaxed) like me, check out all the delicious restaurant choices.

The Spa

The spa is breathtaking. You have to see it to believe it. Check out Season 1, ep. 4 of Hotel Hunt on Amazon Prime Video for the highlights of my epic spa treatment experience!

The Area

The heart and soul of the Baja California Sur is along the southern tip. Downtown Cabo is where you’ll find popular eateries, arts and crafts, a local marina, and tons of nightlife. The marina is a waterfront area that hosts chartered boats and restaurants. It’s a convenient one-stop area so you can enjoy Mexican cuisine, seaside views, and some marine life.

Here are some things to do and see: La Rocha, The Office, Lorenzillos (overlooking the marina), riding ATVs, sailing, glass-bottom boating, parasailing over El Arco, surfing, and more.

The Firsts

As I mentioned, my first visit to Los Cabos was with some of my favorite co-workers for a business meeting. One exceptional colleague and friend was named Kevin. He loved Cabo so much that after his first trip to the city he surprised his wife with a residence. He and his family planned to spend his retirement years in Cabo San Lucas. Kevin’s time was cut tragically short. I dedicate this post to my dear friend, Kevin.  

In loving memory of Kevin

I’ll share more posts about Los Cabos because we filmed about six episodes of Hotel Hunt there, and counting! Stay tuned. 

Safe travels and happy Hotel Hunting.
