Hotel El Ganzo

By Chris Boyle


El Ganzo is Los Cabos’ newest and most unique luxe boutique hotel, often described as a place of experiences.

It has its very own Cultural, Art & Musical program, is a member of Preferred Boutique, and offers 66 deluxe ocean view rooms, four large, and two very large suites. Expansive views of the Sea of Cortes and Puerto Los Cabos Yacht Marina set the tone. Perfectly situated between the area’s natural beauty and modern delights, the property stands at the mouth of Marina Puerto Los Cabos bordered by the fisherman’s wharf, and is only a 20-minute drive to the airport or just fives minutes to the historic town of San José del Cabo and the famous Art Walk. Dining options are multiple onsite with the Gachoo Sushi Bar, the Upstairs Bar wrapped around the infinity pool and signature glass Jacuzzi, Ganzo Downstairs Restaurant overlooking the marina, or a private Beach Club Restaurant on a secluded swimmable beach. With a complete spa and golf five minutes away at Puerto Los Cabos Golf Course, El Ganzo truly is a unique hotel and experience in Los Cabos.
