The Westin Los Cabos Resort & Spa Hotel Review


I booked the Westin Los Cabos Resort & Spa hotel for $125.42 on a BRG (Best Rate Guarantee) rate. The hotel is located in the Hotel Corridor zone of the Transpeninsular highway in Los Cabos. I took a shared ride van from the airport for $15 USD per person and it took approximately 30 minutes to reach the Westin Los Cabos.

The Westin Los Cabos Resort is amazingly beautiful with its vibrant colors and lush scenery.


I got to the hotel pretty late at night since my flight was severely delayed. It was 1am and there was only one person at the check in desk. The front desk agent advised me that there were no suites available as it was all sold out. However, he did put me in an oceanfront Royal Beach Club room. As a Platinum guest, I chose the 500 points as the welcome amenity since I would have access to the Royal Beach Club lounge. I was advised that breakfast would be served at La Cascada restaurant and not at the lounge.


The Royal Beach Club room was an adequate sized as it was not too large and not too small. The room consisted of a King bed, couch seating for two, TV with dresser, and a work-desk.

The bathroom had a single basin sink with a shower and a bathtub. There were open window shutters looking out to the bedroom, but it could be closed for privacy.

The best part about the room was the oceanfront balcony overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean.

The Royal Beach Club lounge is a great place to stock up on cold water located in the fridge.

The resort has multiple pools, but the most notable one is the infinity pool with a swim up bar.


You can also play miniature golf as rentals are free.

Be aware that there is a lifeguard on duty and the waves are very rough. I took two videos of how powerful the waves can be out there. (sorry for the explicit language in the videos)

I had breakfast at La Cascada restaurant which was free for SPG Platinum members since the Royal Beach Club was not open in the morning.


There was a huge selection of Mexican specialties from the breakfast buffet and even an omelet station.

I had a little bit of everything and it was delicious. Yes, these are pictures of breakfast and my favorite was the chilaquiles.

Be aware that if you choose to stay at this hotel, you’re probably going to be stuck here most of the day unless you have a rental car. You can’t walk anywhere out of the resort hotel as there is absolutely nothing but the highway. It’s definitely a five star resort in my book and the service from the staff is top notch as you would expect in a fine luxury hotel.

    I stayed here several years ago and thought it was terrible. It was a 3 star at best. It sounds like it has improved quite a bit.

  2. The Westin Los Cabos is an iconic hotel both in design and style. It’s very unique. I remember when it opened in fact.

    The only negative was beach isn’t a very swimmable one given the waves.
