We booked over booking.com and directly after we got the booking confirmation, we received a mail from the owner that the price in booking.com is not the real price. So he told us to pay around 18% more due to some problem they had with booking.com. Booking.com tried to get in touch with them for two days, but couldn't speak...

Dear Friederike, I'm sorry you had a poor experience with Booking.com. Unfortunately, without our knowledge they listed two promotions together for a total of a 30% discount on our most economical room (normally $160/night), which we could not accept. I messaged you to say that we could offer you a 20% discount, which would only involve paying 10% more than...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Located about an hour south of San Jose del Cabo this is an amazing and unique hotel. Located on a dirt highway, on an elevated plot of land overlooking miles of beach and the Sea of Cortez. Each room is its own separate and unique space, from the spartan beach house, located on the beach, to the pool house with...

If you are not afraid to go off the beaten path a little ways you will find this great little getaway. Up the East Cape about an hour from San Jose del Cabo you will find peace and tranquility. Every room has a view and something unique. The food is awesome and the hosts are simply the best

We were stunned by the beauty of the place and we are not easily impressed. After a long dirt road we were grateful that it was so perfect in every way. Thoughtful, clean, just enough rustic and plush. Wonderful breakfast. Could go on and on.

Faro is one of those gems that you occasionally find while traveling that are just so perfect that you don't want to let the secret out.

Wonderful property, beautifully maintained and clean, with very welcoming hosts.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"Exquisitely off the grid" An elegant eco-hotel, Villa del Faro is a unique oasis nestled on a deserted beach. The Villa was created with the integrity of the surrounding desert in mind. We offer solitude instead of shops, safe swimming beaches, great books, gourmet food, snorkeling, surfing, and just pure beauty! One hour north of the Los Cabos Airport, but a world away in seclusion and serenity. Eight separate Casitas. Breakfast included. ... more   less
