Villa La Estancia in Cabo San Lucas was a last minute choice for us due to a great deal on VRBO. After a solid week of being pampered by the staff, we will definitely be back. The resort was quiet, luxurious, and a great place to just relax outside the busier Marina area. Here are my top 5 tips for Cabo’s Villa La Estancia resort!
Tips for Cabo’s Villa La Estancia-Get to Know the Staff
Villa La Estancia has a world class staff and they will do whatever they can to make sure you have an excellent stay. We asked them for restaurant and activity recommendations and they always came through. Everyone we came across was super helpful. For example, when I was in one part of the resort and had no idea where to find the bathroom, a staff member escorted me quickly to one.
Tips for Cabo’s Villa La Estancia-Visit the Ice Cream Stand
The ice cream stand at La Estancia serves up wonderful ice cream. It tastes so smooth and creamy minus all those preservatives. Because of this, it melts quickly in the Cabo San Lucas heat!
Tips for Cabo’s Villa La Estancia-Cook for Yourself!
There are many local markets (and even a nearby Walmart) that have wonderful fresh meat and produce. One night we grilled up dinner since the Villa La Estancia rooms are fully equipped for food preparations. Our room had a grill, pots, pans and everything we needed to eat a hearty meal out on our balcony!
Tips for Cabo’s Villa La Estancia-Try A Restaurant
While all the food we had was fresh and tasted good, it’s the experience that made it a must-try. We had a final breakfast at La Casona and the staff was so lovely. They sent out a special goodbye dessert and it’s the tiny details like that that make the Villa La Estancia restaurants.
Tips for Cabo’s Villa La Estancia-Don’t miss the experiences!
One day we were relaxing in the pool when a Villa La Estancia staff member walked by with a Golden Eagle on his wrist. Crazy right!? He stopped near the entrance to the lobby and guests were able to hold the falcon and take pictures with it. It was so cool to see. Occasionally La Estancia has experiences like this and social gatherings in the front by the market so ask a front desk concierge if anything is happening on any particular day!
If you decide on Villa La Estancia, make sure you take advantage of all the fun opportunities the resort has to offer! It’s much quieter than its sister resorts but that doesn’t mean that it is boring! It’s actually quite the opposite with fun activities, a swim up bar, a nice gym and lovely restaurants!
