Old World Charm in Los Cabos
On a recent trip to Cabo, after only a 2 hour and 25 min. flight from Orange County, via AirTrans Airways non-stop flights, we were in Cabo heaven: secluded beaches, glass-bottom boat rides, snorkeling excursions and deep-sea fishing trips, and of course seeing the El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, the famous rock formation where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean. Not to mention dining on fresh seafood from one of the world’s premiere fishing areas: camarones en aguachile, fresh red snapper, fried squid and lobster.
Now if you want to experience a breathtaking oceanfront resort in Cabo, consider the old world charm of the Sheraton Hacienda del Mar Resort & Spa encompassing 28 acres on the Sea of Cortez.
You'll never have to leave the gorgeous setting with cobblestone walkways, twisting paths, courtyards and fountains, shops, as well as five restaurants and five bars, four infinity and cascading swimming pools, and the private Tortuga Beach where you can enjoy volleyball, beach bonfires and dinners. Carve out some “me” time, and reserve a pampering service at the Cactus Spa, like its unforgettable “on the beach massage” or a calorie free chocolate body wrap.
Make sure to reserve a special night for dinner at De Cortez Grill and Restaurant, a romantic spot with waves crashing just steps away, where you can enjoy chef Salvador Campuzano’s famed crab cake cookies, lobster and mango bisque, fried cheese dumpling dusted with a pumpkin seed crust, and a feast of fresh seafood, fresh shrimp, lobster, or crawfish, as well as mesquite grilled Angus beef specialties.
At the Sheraton Hacienda del Mar, golf enthusiasts will be wowed by nearby Cabo del Sol that offers two renowned golf courses—the Ocean Course and Desert Course. The Ocean Course, a Jack Nicklaus designed 72-par course stretches for more than a mile along the coastline Nicklaus has said it has "the three finest finishing holes in all of golf.” And, the Desert Course, features 18 holes of stunning ocean views, arroyo, and colorful landscapes designed by Tom Weiskop.
