Las Ventanas al Paraiso, “windows to paradise”, lends a sense of romantic that goes beyond the average romance package you might find on the Internet. Do not mistake this for just another resort in Los Cabos hotel corridor. It is not. When I visited Cabo in nearly two years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting the general manager, Lionel Alvarez, and his attentive staff, to walk through the property, viewing romantic venues and accommodations fit for a king. We were greeted by the entire staff and offered “Welcoming Margaritas”, an exquisite concoction that was part margarita, part heaven. A great start to a heavenly evening.
Romance is always in the air at Las Ventanas al Paraíso, which has long been heralded as one of the world’s most romantic resorts. But never more than today with the appointment of Mariajose Rodriguez as the Director of the Department of Romance. The Director of Romance at Las Ventanas is a modern-day Cupid whose mission it is to make guests’ romantic dreams come true. Since most guests are couples on a romantic getaway, Las Ventanas has taken service to the highest level by making a stay at the Five Diamond property the ultimate romantic resort experience.
It is only 6 miles from the hotel corridor to San Jose del Cabo, a quaint town that has worked hard to refresh its image while maintaining its authenticity and colonial flavor. It feels light years different from the very new, often renovated and mostly upscale hotel corridor. If you are looking for an authentic cultural and dining experience, San Jose del Cabo would be good to put on your must-see and must-experience list while visiting Los Cabos.
Sunshine and cool ocean breezes. Sandy beaches and splashing waves. An attendant dropping by my lounge chair every half hour ready to bring whatever I desire: a diet cola, pina coloda, or chips and salsa. Yes, I really am working, checking out the Marquis Los Cabos Resort in Mexico for future visitors.
