My husband and I spent a wonderful two nights at Villa del Faro and would highly recommend it. It is one of the most beautiful places we've ever stayed and hope to return one day. We stayed in the Bali room which has spectacular views - especially at sunset when the sun lights up the desert, while the full moon...

The place is simply amazing. Rooms are spacious, with lots of privacy and very clean. It's run by a group of owners who are very helpful and extremely accommodating. Snorkel gear, umbrellas, etc are free to be used contrary to staying in most hotels. Breakfast is great with lots of choices. We would definitely stay here again. We found the...

Villa del Faro is a beautiful retreat on the Sea of Cortez. The grounds are opulent and stunning, and we caught whales frolicking in the sea right from our casita. About a half hour north on the dirt road is Cabo Pulmo, a little town where you can scuba, snorkel, whale watch, and find other outdoor activities, so you can...

This is a truly unique place, a desert oasis on the edge of the sea. The property is beautifully maintained and the Casitas comfortable and relaxing. What could be better than lying in a hammock listening to the surf and watching the dawn break?! You have the beach to yourself, the swimming, snorkeling and hiking are fantastic. The food, the...

Our family of five (two adults, three teen boys) rented two casitas over Presidents' Day weekend. Our three-day stay slipped by before we even realized it. This is a serene place where you can do as little or as much as you like. Lazing in the hammock with a book, yoga overlooking the empty beach, snorkling, body surfing, hiking through...

Our stay at Villa del Faro was magical. It is a secluded property offering a true oasis of peace and relaxation. The casitas are beautifully built with incredible artisinal craftsmanship throughout. The food, both breakfast and dinner, was delicious and everyone who works there was very kind. Highly recommended...you won't be disappointed!

We spent 5 nights in this fabulous property. From the minute we went through the improbably grand gates I knew we had struck gold.

"Exquisitely off the grid" An elegant eco-hotel, Villa del Faro is a unique oasis nestled on a deserted beach. The Villa was created with the integrity of the surrounding desert in mind. We offer solitude instead of shops, safe swimming beaches, great books, gourmet food, snorkeling, surfing, and just pure beauty! One hour north of the Los Cabos Airport, but a world away in seclusion and serenity. Eight separate Casitas. Breakfast included. ... more   less
