Luxury Resort: It just doesn't get much better than this-perched on the bluffs of Punta Ballena, or Whale Point, on Baja's Sea of Cortez, is the one of the world's hottest luxury destinations, the Hotel at Esperanza. Only four miles from Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Esperanza overlooks two private
coves and features 50 luxury suites and six private villas, ranging from 925 to 4,750 square feet of indoor and outdoor living space with large terraces revealing spectacular views of the ocean. Rooms are decorated in a casual, yet elegant, Baja style, with original art and handcrafted furnishings, fine linens, plush robes and oversized bathrooms. You won't be without creature comforts with a fully-stocked in-room bar, TV, stereo and DVD player. What's a vacation without good food? Esperanza's Signature Restaurant serves up regional fare representing authentic local cuisine and culinary excellence. Carved into the bluffs above the Sea of Cortez, the restaurant accommodates guest on three levels of stone terraces flowing from a circular palapa-roofed dining room down to the property's two sandy coves. Chef specialties include cocina del sol -- "sun-filled" Mediterranean-influenced cooking, which incorporates local resources and regional flavors. Complementing the menu is an extensive wine list and tequila menu featuring more than 100 selections.
