Los Cabos is one of Mexico’s top five travel destinations. Located on the tip of the 800-mile-long Baja California Peninsula, where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean at the famous El Arco (Lands End Arch), Cabo is known for its great weather, gorgeous beaches and spectacular scenery.
Los Cabos includes the historic San Jose Del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas and is just often referred to as ‘Cabo.’
My husband and I own a vacation club in Los Cabos at Hacienda Encantada, which we absolutely love. On a Cabo trip post-COVID where travelers were seriously hankering to get away, we decided to stay a few extra days in this ‘desert meets the sea’ paradise. However, our resort was completely sold out due to a fishing tournament (something Cabo is highly renowned for).
As luck would have it, we met a lovely couple on a sunset cruise that mentioned they were owners at Sirena del Mar, at the time owned and managed by Welk Resorts and since acquired by Hyatt.
We were able to book an additional stay at the resort and it ended up being an absolute delight and a totally different experience.
Sirena del Mar is located on the main Transpenisular Highway, about 30-minutes from the airport and a 10-minute drive to the downtown and Marina district. This makes it an ideal home-away-from-home for exploring the area.
If you’re not renting a car, you can make arrangements with the property in advance for round-trip transportation to and from the resort for a fee.
Hyatt Sirena del Mar
Hyatt Vacation Club at Sirena del Mar (translating to Siren of the Sea) is a stunning seven-acre oceanfront resort perched cliffside at the tip of the Baja peninsula with a view of the famous El Arco, the iconic Los Cabos arch. Because of its unique location, it offers some of the most commanding ocean views you will find.
The property also boasts a private cove beach overlooking the Sea of Cortez. Because it’s not a public beach, no solicitors are allowed to pander their goods here. Though the beach is a bit rocky, Cabo certainly doesn’t hurt for its other magnificent nearby sandy beaches such Las Viudas (Widow’s Beach).
Guests will also appreciate that the resort setting is in an ideal location for spotting whales during their annual migration that occurs mid-October to the end of March.
Staying at Sirena del Mar
Sirena del Mar features 108 one and two-bedroom suites and villas with full kitchens, in-unit laundry, and separate living areas. Guests have a choice of ocean view or garden views, however, unless you are set in stone on an ocean view, all in-suite accommodations and amenities are the same, and you will not suffer ocean views while staying on-property.
In addition, if you’re into booking the best experience, the two-bedroom Penthouse Ocean View offers an impressive 1,400-square-feet of expansive living space.
Our 900-square-foot one-bedroom, one-bath ocean view villa had custom furniture, travertine stone flooring, a private balcony, separate living area with a queen sleeper sofa, two fireplaces, a fully-equipped kitchen with granite counters and in-unit laundry.
We also loved the large wall-mounted LCD TV screens and Bose Wave system surround-sound. The décor was classy without being overstated. After all, there’s no reason to try and compete with such stunning views.
Sirena del Mar is a place where you’ll love slowing down the pace of life to enjoy that Mimosa with your breakfast, a poolside cocktail, or a glass of wine to toast the setting sun.
The resort boasts two absolutely beautiful meandering infinity edge pools with a swim-up bar, plenty of poolside seating with shaded umbrellas, a secluded hot tub, fitness center and a full-service spa. Even the fitness center offers commanding ocean views.
Sirena del Mar’s on-site restaurant, Estrella, features upscale Mexican cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast and lunch atmosphere is more casual, while dinner transforms the restaurant to a bit more formal ambience.
A marketplace onsite is convenient for any needed grab-and-go items. A concierge is available for questions or for booking local activities and dining reservations. Valet parking and Wi-Fi are included in the daily resort fee pricing.
Los Cabos has a number of grocery store options close by which includes a Walmart and even a Costco. Staying in a vacation villa is such a good choice for those who love to cook, don’t want to eat every meal out, or are trying to be value-conscious on their vacation.
This vibrant Land’s End getaway at the tip of the Baja Peninsula is magical place where the mountains meet the desert and the desert meets the sea. Sirena del Mar is a wonderful place to enjoy your vacation escape.
