The Cape, a Thompson Hotel in Cabo San Lucas: a getaway where the energy is palpable, the drinks are flowing, and the music never dies! This ultra-trendy resort is a prime spot for spring break, bachelor/bachelorette parties, or just about anything worth celebrating.
Our suite was spacious, yet cozy, providing a perfect space for Chris, the kids, and me to retreat to between outings. We had a stunning view overlooking "Love Rock" near downtown Cabo San Lucas, which we enjoyed from our private plunge pool on our balcony. Designed with neutral tones, various textures, and modern fixtures, the overall vibe of our suite was midcentury masculinity with sleek sophistication.
Since the best way to start our days (both on vacation and at home) is by getting our bodies moving, Chris and I headed to the on-site fitness center, where we were pleasantly surprised to see expansive views of the Sea of Cortezand El Arco. The menu of class offerings included options for both indoors and out, ranging from HIIT, to beach boot camp, glutes and abs, and power yoga body sculpt. While in paradise, we chose to take our classes on the sand--after all, what's more motivating than the sight of crystal blue waters and pristine sand beaches calling your name?
The one thing I was most excited to do on this trip was take Lilah for her very first spa experience, as The Cape provides a "spa kids" menu at their beautiful Currents Spa. In preparation for our mommy and me spa experience, they set us up in a dual room, where I selected and received the Currents Massage alongside Lilah, who enjoyed the Currents Little Massage. After our massages, we threw on our matching robes and treated our skin to a few facials. I absolutely loved the Diamond Cocoon Experience Facial while Lilah enjoyed the Little One Facial. After her experience, Lilah has officially become a spa junkie! I'm so proud...
The Cape offers a vast selection of activities that vary depending on the day of the week, from wine tastings with their in-house Sommelier on Mondays and Wednesdays, to pool sessions with a live DJ on Fridays and Saturdays. You can also add mezcal tastings to that list, as well as sport fishing for billfish and marlin, golf, and sailing while whale watching and snorkeling! As if that wasn't enough, there's also Cabo Adventures, which is a service available to families looking to book exciting adventures like swimming with dolphins, camel safaris, and electric biking across the beach.
To fuel up for a day of adventure, we enjoyed breakfast at The Ledge, a mix of contemporary Mexican and traditional American fare overlooking the bright, white sand beaches. Chris and I enjoyed the veggie omelette and poached eggs, while the kids ate their way through the extensive buffet offerings. Their locally sourced seafood comes highly recommended, which we couldn't pass up, so we enjoyed lunch at The Ledge poolside. Chris and I ordered a spread of grilled fish tacos, fresh guacamole and pico de gallo, and their fabulous spicy tuna rolls, which I 10 out of 10 recommend! For dinner, you must check out Manta, their fine dining restaurant whose name means "blanket" in Spanish--emphasizing their Mexico, Peru, and Japan-influenced take on comfort food. We shared the sashimi, mushroom ramen, black miso fish tacos, roasted sweet potato
and almond mole, and a watermelon salad with tomato, raspberry, and hibiscus chamoy. For those looking for a nightcap (or pre-dinner drinks), The Rooftop is a must- see, as it's the only rooftop bar in all of Cabo San Lucas. Their mixologist, Hector, is practically famous in these parts and makes handcrafted cocktails that go down almost too easily! The Rooftop was our favorite place to grab a drink before dinner while feeling the glow of the pink and orange sunset on our skin--the most beautiful sunsets we've ever seen.
