A beautiful, secluded oasis by the beach, I could not have asked for a more relaxing, accommodating and friendly experience. Far exceeded my expectations. A haven if you're a birder like me. Can't wait to visit again!!!

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 29 January 2017

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...

Everything about our stay was glorious. The reception we received from our exceptionally gracious and hospitable hosts, the very private and beautifully appointed casita, the meals, the pool, and the extraordinary access to the beach (and whale sightings). The grounds are designed to maximize privacy and yet also encourage exploration.

This place was a total (and somewhat unsuspected) joy - after a torturous drive, to end up in a perfectly designed, understated oasis of lush unpretentious landscaping and architecture, beautifully melded into the landscape with gorgeous views on every side! Impeccable hospitality, delicious food and wonderfully convivial fellow guests; our stay was far too short. Hesitant to recommend so highly,...

Stunning location with first class accommodations, food/drink and, in particular, world class hospitality from hosts Jocelyn and Seth. One of a kind experience in remote and beautiful area. Go for a not-a-care-in-the-world retreat and enjoy this very special hotel.

This is the most beautiful hotel we have been too. Every room / terrace / relax area has a lot of taste, everything is in the details. We booked the cheapest room (Bali Room) and I think it's the best one: breathing the fresh air of the ocean when sleeping is a blast, the views are to die for and...

We stayed at Villa del Faro for a mere 4 nights and will book longer next time. As recommended when booking, we flew into SJD and rented a car from Cactus which was just outside the airport. They were there to confirm our booking and standing there with as sign and a shuttle ready to go. The rental was easy,...

It is rare to find beauty, wonderfully professional service, delicious food and accommodations that take your breath away. Villa Del Faro has all of these qualities. Before you even arrive, your host Seth will provide tips, directions, and extremely responsive communication so that your trip is perfect. Upon arrival, you are offered drinks, and shown the grounds, which are stunning....

Like coming upon an oasis in the desert with the lush plantings, birds, and furnishings not to mention the beautiful, rocky beach. Very nice staff as well. Not easy to get to from the north, but most people come from the south - dirt road, but manageable. Dangerous surf when we were there, so no swimming unless you walk up...

Yes, it is a bit of an effort to get there, but oh, my, it is so worth it if you are looking to relax in a magical location with wonderful hosts and interesting fellow guests. We ended our 3 week stay in Baja Sur with two nights at Villa del Faro and only wish we'd planned to stay a...

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

“We totally loved the Casa Azul towards the edge of the property, but quite intrigued by the beach casita, tho did not end up staying in it. The pool casita also looked special, but could be a bit of a problem if other guests were spending a lot of time at the pool - did not look carefully at the others, but sure all are equally comfortable and unique.”
