To start planning your vacation to The Resort at Pedregal
Reached by an incredible torch lit tunnel carved through the mountains, The Resort at Pedregal, formerly known as Capella Pedregal, is an exciting addition to the luxury hotel scene on Mexico's Baja California Peninsula.
With a picture-postcard position on the southernmost tip of Baja, it has a stunning oceanfront position from which the dramatic waves can be seen crashing against the shore. The resort consists of 112 luxurious and spacious rooms, all with a private terrace and plunge pools. They are fitted out with hand-crafted Mexican details and state-of-the-art amenities. The grounds are glorious, with palms, cactus, sculptures and huge stone vases dotting the property, as well as three beautiful pools.
Service is exemplary, with personal assistants assigned to each guest, while the food is exquisite, ranging from real Mexican food served at Don Miguel’s to the seafood restaurant El Farallon tucked into a cliff above the ocean.
During your stay here you can spend your time relaxing at the hotel by the inviting pool, being pampered in the spa, listening to the lapping waves at the beach or in the privacy of your room. Alternatively you can explore the local town - discover the artisan shops, dine at the local restaurants or charter a yacht to explore the coastline.
The Resort at Pedregal is immersed in the natural environment of Los Cabos, where desert meets the ocean. Villas, rooms and casitas each feature a terrace with spectacular ocean views, with refined, upscale touches, such as specially chosen reading material, luxury amenities, premium bedding and a private plunge pool. For even more privacy, choose a luxury villa or casita, ranging in size from two to four bedrooms. The two-bedroom beachfront suites come with private access to the resort's beach, although at certain times of year it should be noted that the waves can be strong and access is restricted.
Children are welcome at the hotel, and babysitting can be arranged upon request. The Tortuguitas Kids Club program offers half-day, full day, evening and week-long programs in addition to a nanny service by the hour. Activities can be conducted individually, with siblings or as part of a larger group providing the opportunity to make new friends; activities include movies under the stars, scavenger hunts, Spanish classes, cookery classes and sand castle building. There is a separate children's pool around which the family accommodation can be found, close to the kids club and beach club which has another family-friendly pool.
The Resort at Pedregal offers three swimming pools, three restaurants, the Luna y Mar spa, Julien Farel hair salon and a fantastic fitness center.
El Farallón is a Los Cabos Restaurant which serves delicious fresh seafood above the crashing waves. Don Manuel is the Resort at Pedregal's signature restaurant and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in traditional mexican surroundings. The menu is inspired by local and organic produce to create flavorsome and fresh cuisine for you to savor. The Beach Club is open during the day and has panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and Pedregal Mountain. The club serves coastal cuisine and exotic drinks. You can also indulge in the chance to take cooking classes or classes in signature cocktail making or wine tasting.
Luna y Mar spa is the ideal place to go to for a bit of pampering with an array of treatments on offer, a sauna, steam and ice room and a whirlpool. The spa has a tranquil environment enhanced by the inspirational ocean views and treatments are created to coincide with the 12 phases of the moon for a completely unique experience.

Location & Directions
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
The Resort at Pedregal sits at the very point where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez, near the legendary rock formations known as Land's End in Cabo San Lucas, on the southernmost tip of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula.
When to go
Baja California is a rare destination that offers a great getaway year long. Peak time for travel is when weather is temperate in the low 20ºc range and whale watching opportunities are at their best (late-November to April). This also includes the festive vacation and New Year period. Cool temperatures are ideal for desert adventures and hiking and boating for wildlife viewing and island exploration. Summer (April to September) can be hot and humid but the beaches are less crowded. Summer waters are ideal for snorkeling and diving. Hurricanes are much less common than in the Caribbean, but it is something to be aware of for September and October travel which is considered low season.
Baja is blessed with two marine life rich oceans; the Sea of Cortez to the east has a warmer sea temperature than the more exposed than the Pacific Ocean to the west. In the summer the breeze coming from the Pacific is a blessing. For surfing, waves break on the eastern side of the peninsula March to October and on the Pacific west November to March.
When planning your visit, it is worth noting the peninsula's main fiestas. Each March San Jose del Cabo throws an 11-day long Fiesta Patronal with parades and carnival and La Paz holds a similar event. Easter is also a busy time for Mexican's heading to the beach to celebrate Semana Santa and September 16 is Mexican Independence Day.
