The Cape - a Thompson Hotel (Cabo San Lucas) REVIEW - MASTER THREAD

Decided to start a threat for The Cape since there was no master thread. Just finishing up a stay here. And overall, it's been quite enjoyable. We booked a Prive stay with the 4th night free and used a suite upgrade (it upgrades to a Thompson Suite).

The room was plenty big, over 1,000 square feet with a great balcony overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Prive/Globalist breakfast each day is served in The Ledge restaurant (order off a menu). Our breakfast bill has been close to $100 daily and the entire bill has been waived.

We've also dined at all of the restaurants at the resort including Manta and they have all been fantastic, although food & drink is a little spendy.

But overall great service, a great resort. Would definitely recommend for any couples, probably not an ideal trip for a family with kiddos though.

Pictures of the suite/resort.

Looks like it's in Cabo.

Their homepage has some gorgeous videography. I've been to a number of high end Hyatt hotels and their promo video makes me want to plan a trip there.

Checking rates august next year, starting at 1000$++.
Is it a bug on the website or are they planning a conversion to all incl.?

Great post!

Any chance a Prive booking could be combined with an award booking?

Any recent stays? Planning to go in December, but a little worried about noise at night. I am a light sleeper and have read reviews where people say there are many bachelor/bachelorette parties here. Does anyone have any positive or negative experiences to share? Thanks.

Just got back and LOVED The Cape! Very much an adult experience. We stay in a Thompson Suite and had the slider open all night for the waves. It was GREAT! The Rooftop Bar is probably for a younger crowd than myself but was absolutely hopping from about 9pm on. It was September 15th, Independence Day, and it was a great crowd. Went back on the 17th at about 10pm, much quieter. We were there 3 nights ZERO complaints about noise or kids. STAFF was AMAZING, very much on point. I would probably go back, spend the 25k points a night because everything is expensive. Think POOL in Vegas type cost. Did the Ledge, Manta and pool bar, all attentive and good food.


We go to the Hyatt Ziva often, the noise there is nonstop. I would give this a 10 out of 10 for quiet at night. Its definitely a place for groups of Ladies or Men would go from the LA scene. We met some great people from LA area. Pool was not loud either. Its a really small hotel.

The Trip Advisors reviews seemed too good, but they are correct.
For reference, I'm 45.

Loved it!

Just booked 3 night award stay at 25k/night for next April. I only found King Bed with Ocean View and ADA Shower. Anyone stayed in this room before? I'll likely call the hotel prior to check-in and inform them that I do not need an ada compliant room.

Considering a stay here on points using a TSU, do they upgrade to Thompson suite with a plunge pool?

Looking to do the same in late 2020 and assume the base suite would be the Junior Suite with Ocean View, and the plunge pool suites being in the 'premium suite' categories.

Stayed here for a second time, upgraded to a One Bedroom Suite (didn't ask for an upgrade), about 1300 sqr feet, on a Free 1-7 Category Cert. THIS TIME, short trip and was conscious of the cost for food/beverage, because it is defiantly VEGAS POOL STYLE. IMO its out of line for Mexico, but hey I'm getting old. Decided to go to THE OFFICE for a 225$ dinner, with drinks, lobster, steak, versus stay on and spend 500$ again. GET OFF MY LAWN. Great pool, great staff, great property. Globalist Breakfast is good. Love the views, the property, the staff. Will be back on a cert or points stay. Think you have to get to AUG/SEPT before rates come down enough, that I would spend cash again. My NEW favorite Cabo Hotel, kills the Ziva but is very different, almost cannot compare.


THIS is my CABO TIP If staying at the Ziva or Cape or any high end Cabo Resort.........Fly in, stay at the HYATT PLACE for about 70$, last time we paid 57$, then the next morning- early, go check in and enjoy the amazing Resort. We usually do this on the way in and the way out. Plenty of good restaurants and bars in town to Uber or even walk to. Makes a 2 night Resort stay feel like 4, especial for a Globie with a 4 pm check out and they will check you in as early as 7 am, if the rooms available. At least that's my experience with the Ziva.

TSU does book into a Thompson Suite. We requested a Thompson Suite without a plunge pool, but you may be able to have your concierge request one if available.

Just booked a penthouse suite for 2 nights at 50,000 pts per night + 25% rebate.
For Globalist, would I be able to get breakfast for up to 6 people since the 3 bedroom penthouse is for 6?

This is a good question, I am curious myself. In the suite description they say daily breakfast included regardless of Globalist status, so it should definitely be included.

I too booked the Penthouse for 6 using points for a stay in early October. The rate is incredible, deal seems to be dead now since I can't find availability for the Penthouse.

I am sure you saw via the website, breakfast is included in the rate for everyone. See list of benefits below. So having globalist (I don't) doesn't seem to matter, hopefully. I have emailed the hotel (waiting for a reply) to schedule my airport pick up and make sure I can get my cabana rental... crossing fingers.
