Guests looking for food at this hotel won’t be disappointed by the selection. There are five restaurants and bars to choose from that offer dinner and drinks with a view.
Here are options at The Cape:
This restaurant’s inspiration comes from the elegance and simplicity of the desert. Its name, “Manta,” partially refers to manta rays and partly nods to the Spanish word manta, which means canvas. This double entendre alludes to the restaurant’s fresh seafood and artistic expression. Chef du cuisine Abisai Sanchez takes inspiration for its cuisine from Mexico, Peru, Japan, and more.
The Ledge blends modern Mexican with traditional American flavors in a casual, beachside environment. Guests can start their day off right with some eggs and French toast and sample freshly-caught, locally-sourced seafood throughout the day.
Grab some drinks at the lone rooftop bar and lounge in Cabo San Lucas. The joint serves up handcrafted cocktails and local artisan beer with a view of downtown and the Arch.
If you want some drinks while swimming at the pool, Point Break is there to serve you. The bar serves up refreshing drinks and a daily lunch menu.
This bar pairs perfectly with dinner at Manta. You can either grab a pre-meal drink or unwind after your meal. There’s a terrace with sweeping views, pool tables, and other games to entertain you.
This hotel skews towards the younger, trendier crowd. Many of the guests are around 35-45 years old, visiting without kids. Since The Cape has prime beach access, it’s popular amongst surfers.
However, it is not an adults-only resort, and families are welcome here. There are a kid’s club and plenty of amenities to entertain the entire family. Couples and groups also find this hotel to be a relaxing retreat.
The hands-down highlight at this hotel for our agent was its unbeatable views of the Sea of Cortez and the famous Los Cabos arch. This retreat does a remarkable job of maximizing its spaces to create excellent vantage points.
Another highlight would be its surfing opportunities. There are great places within reach to ride some waves.
