The Cape, a Thompson Hotel in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
The Cape, a Thompson Hotel, is redefining the coastline of Los Cabos. Open in June 2015, there’s no trace of the traditional Mexican beach resort. Sleek architectural lines eschew Spanish tile, and the rooftop bar channels New York City with a tropical vibe. The hotel is still distinctly Mexico – ceramicist Josť Noť Suro contributed contemporary art pieces, and hand-painted tile appears throughout the property. Arrive to a room dressed in bespoke Latin American furniture and accessorized with special touches – there’s a tequila welcome gift and a set of binoculars for spying on whales, which frequent the waters surrounding the Baja Peninsula.
Lounge in the Los Cabos sun by one of the property’s pair of pools – there’s a saltwater lagoon built into a natural rock formation and an infinity pool with a swim-up bar. Make use of your butterfly strokes to order a raspberry mojito. Indulge in an oceanside massage. Dine on fresh fish ceviche, then head up to the rooftop Skygarden Terrace to sip champagne with views stretching to downtown Cabo.

Reviews for The Cape, a Thompson Hotel
Stayed here just a few weeks ago! It is definitely one of the luxury places to stay in Cabo, but a bit overrated in my opinion for what you get. We rented the 3 master suite penthouse, way more space than is needed for the maximum capacity of 6 people. The first floor has 3 immaculate rooms with modern and high end d√©cor. Living room is spacious, I would post pictures, but the pictures from the website are the same, it is not embellished , so check it out if you want to see pics or the 360 view. Rooms had daily service with turn down service. The housekeeping was amazing!!! Here is what came complimentary with the penthouse: Daily snack -- You choose the time. Usually included a chocolate and a cracker/dip. It is a very light snack, don't expect to get full on it. One day it was chocolates , chips and olive tepanade. Another day was chocolate and cheese taquitos. You don't get to pick the snack, it is a surprise. Welcome Tequila --- Already set up in your living room welcoming you on your arrival and stay. Was pretty good and smooth tequila! 1 day Cabana --- Totally overrated, not worth to rent, but was fun since it was included with the price of the penthouse. You do not get better service here than any where else and no drinks (not even water) come with it. There is plenty of shade elsewhere and every lounge chair has umbrella coverage, so shade is never an issue. Was told it is $500 minimum purchase to rent the cabana for a day.... I would say it is not worth even close to it. Private transportation to/from airport -- Drier had sign, was there when we got out of the airport and managed all of our luggage. It was so easy and he was great! The grounds of the hotel are top notch! The landscape is modern with succulents and well manicured. The lobby is an open air concept (reminds me of Hawaii) and huge, never crowded. We were met with our "personal concierge" to show us the grounds and explain what is included, what is not included and where everything is. The personal concierge, wasn't very useful to be honest and was able to make some reservations for us, but was really slow in responding and I think had no influence on the times or tables at the restaurants we booked. I think he was more of a secretary than anything. The top floor was the deck which included the jacuzzi, lounge area, outside dining set, fireplace and bar area, which had its own ice maker and refrigerator! There was also a bathroom on the top floor, super convenient!! Jacuzzi was not as warm as we wanted it to be and there was no option for jets. Fire pit was nice, except you have to call someone to light it and someone to come and put it out! Super inconvenient and pretty lame... would be nice to have a switch to be able to do it on your own. Flame was also pretty weak. Called another night to get the firepit lit ... said someone will come up... 20 min later, no one. Called again... no answer from the front desk OR our "personal concierge". Super bad service... when you rent the penthouse and pay over $2K/night, you expect to at least have your calls answered. Not many places to eat around here and downtown/marina is about a $30 cab ride away. The Office & Cabo Wabo are about $20 cab ride away. We ate at Manta 2x... again, over rated. It is upscale dining, we never got to sit outside like requested and had later reservations than requested. Food was very good, but I wouldn't say excellent, especially not for the price. Service was so-so... they were very nice, but timing of dishes was WAY off and completely not annoying when you get your main dish 2 min after your appetizers! Two mahi tacos were nearly $30 USD. They were tiny ... each one fit in my hand easily and I don't have big hands! You pay for the view and pretty much the convenience of being at the hotel. The Rooftop bar was pretty awesome, check it out for sure. Cocktail and food are the same prices as in LA or other big city, but it was worth it for the view! The infinity pool was awesome--- of course! Swim up bar was convenient, but found the bartenders didn't really know how to make some cocktails. I would stick with beer or tell them exactly what you want in your drink. The food was "OK" when ordered at the pool... our nachos came out lukewarm, not covered in a metal top before it came out to us. The sushi rolls were "OK", fell apart... but it is cabo, they are not known for their sushi! For the "value".. I would not vote this place very high. Don't get me wrong, it is NICE, but it doesn't meet the 5 stars .. check out Las Ventanas or Pedregal. If you want a private, low key vacation, this is a great option, but there are other options in Cabo too. This is not a party hotel. It is more for honeymooners or if you want a really low key, relaxing place to vacation. Last, but not least.... the free wi-fi was fantastic in all locations at the hotel. This is a big pet peeve of mine when hotels offer free wi-fi and it doesn't work or is really slow. The wi-fi here is great, no disconnects and great connections!

Big congratulations on such a great property. I very much enjoyed my stay and will plan a return visit. I will also tell others. I too will look for other Thompson Hotels when I travel. If there is a list of these properties I would appreciate a follow up. Best,
From the minute you arrive the service at the Cape will be incredible. The staff is incredible! From the spa (Juanita!!!) to every restaurant, the service you experience will be beyond fabulous. The attention to detail and professionalism of every staff member exceeded any expectation we could have had. They anticipated what we wanted before we even knew we wanted it without ever being intrusive. The food at all of the restaurants is amazing. Manta is one of our favorites (we visited twice our first trip!). Alberto V and Christian worked with us to create the most amazing menu that was tailored around my gluten allergy. (GF people - every restaurant has GF marked on their menus and they can do substitutions/modifications for most other things!!!) We visited the Ledge every day for breakfast and our servers (Arturo and Moisses) were beyond thoughtful and the food was super fresh and delicious. At both stays we visited the Rooftop and this time there was live music that was really entertaining. It is a great place to grab a drink and some appetizers before or after a night out to dinner. We spent most of our time poolside and the service there is beyond. Again - not in any way intrusive on your relaxing vacation but just enough attention to detail to make sure you are very, very well taken care of! Look for Bull, Alex or Paolo!! If I could give this hotel a 6 I would. This is our second time to visit the Cape and definitely not our last!
We decided to go "all out" for our 4-day honeymoon, and the Cape beyond exceeded our expectations. Photos don't do the property justice with its gorgeous open lobby and bar, infinity pool and views of the arch. The service and hospitality was great across the board, from a warm check-in welcome to incredibly attentive service at the pool and restaurants. Food and drinks were great (definitely check out Manta located in the hotel), the gym was in excellent condition and the room was immaculate. Next time we're in Cabo, we'll definitely be back at The Cape.
