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.

We loved the natural beauty and incredible staff and will definitely be back. But make sure this is what you want as it is remote - it was perfect for us! Due to beingvoff the frid, there is no AC.....that was fine for us in winter but not sure about in summer.

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. We happened upon Faro when our diving plans in Cabo Pulmo got blown out by a week's worth of high winds. I booked two nights over New Years as a thank you to my...

Wonderful property, beautifully maintained and clean, with very welcoming hosts. We were a little surprised to see children, we typically don't visit family destinations and from the description of the property we would never expect a family with young children to want to visit The only thing we would change is the dinner meal plan, there is only one option...

Loved the privacy and charm of this little cottage . Breakfast was delicious and plentiful . Hotel staff are helpful and gracious . Only thing I am not too fond of is the road to the hotel . Too bumpy for me .

Loved the atmosphere, the company of those around, and the private beach The road there was a little rough but with our economy size car, and slow driving, we made it fine and saw a bobcat! Stone cottage was a great experience.

My wife and I spent the last few days of our annual Baja Sur vacation at Villa del Faro, and we could not have been happier. While some may balk at the "roughing it" aspect of being in a remote area of the East Cape, we are all for it. We stayed two nights in the stone beach cottage, and...

Nice eco-friendly hotel. Beautiful Mexican decoration with nice, comfortable rooms at a very beautiful location. The owners and staff are very friendly and polite. Ideal for romantic and relaxing vacations. The food is served at specific time but is good quality, well cooked and tasty. The prices could be a bit cheaper especially for food and drinks. And it was...

The hotel was amazing every detail was perfect. I have already recommended the hotel to my special friends as it is a one of a kind place. The staff was very polite and helpful and the food was some of the best I had in baja. Honestly I have never seen such a place with such beauty, peace and serenity....

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
