Review: The Sheraton Los Cabos Mexico ~ Family Travel Perfection

I felt a sense of warmth and relaxation come over me, the second I arrived at The Sheraton, Los Cabos. I enjoy properties that instantly make me feel right at home, as if I was returning to my private beach bungalow in paradise.  The traditional hacienda style of this property is comfortable yet chic, and the Sheraton did a fine job at welcoming me home.

I had a ground floor ocean front room and and it really could not have been more perfect, I was also on the end and literally steps from the beach. The room even had a patio with a little grass hill area, which I thought would be perfect for my kids to roll around on. When traveling with kids, sometimes it’s the smallest things that make a big difference, like the towel and swimsuit drying racks they had on the patio, loved it.

The Pools

The Sheraton Los Cabos has a variety of pools scattered around the property, each one even better than the last. Moms will appreciate the safety feature of gradual shallow entry that some of the pools had. The beach front pools were gorgeous of course but the garden pools were just as quaint and even felt private. The painted turtles were a nice touch to make kids feel welcome.

I loved the bridge leading to a jacuzzi and you can never go wrong with a swim up bar!

Family Note:  In April 2012, The Sheraton Los Cabos will be expanding with a brand new Kids Klub area that will have a full interactive water park facility with splash pads and water slides.
This will also serve as a safe and secure place where parents can drop off their kids for the day. The site was under construction while I visited but I am sure it will be a kids paradise when it is finished, and my kids will be more than happy to give it a test!

The Spa

The Cactus Spa offers a variety of treatments, everything from facials, massages, body wraps and even a Vichy shower room. The women’s locker room included a steam room, sauna, showers, lockers and all the female spa essentials. It has a co-ed, relaxation area as well as a outside hot tub area with 3 hot tubs with three different temperatures. This area was tranquil and quiet and the sound of the waterfall put me right into spa mode.

The Food

The Sheraton, Los Cabos has 2 five star restaurants on the property and the food was down right amazing!  D Cortez Grill which over looks the Sea of Cortez and the elegant Pitahayas Restaurant, winner of the five-star Diamond Award from the American Academy of Hospitality for seven years, features eclectic Pacific Rim cuisine.  Both of these meals were incredible and one of them just might get the award for my favorite meal of all time!  The Pitahayas food was delicious, and I have to say that the glowing ice cup filled with a sorbet popsicle was rather impressive.

These restaurants are more suited for getting dressed up and having a”date- night” but you can find poolside casual dining at the Sirenas Restaurant and for breakfast and more kid-friendly options there is a buffet style restaurant, Tomatoes.

Oh and did I forget to mention the Wine Cave?  Yes, they have an actual Wine Cave  on the property and you could even host a private dinner down in the cave –  it’s a bit chilly but  beyond beautiful!

If all that sounds too fancy, no worries they have a low key sports bar to grab a beer and watch the game at La Suerte, which also has over 100 different kinds of tequila!

Family Travel Perfection

This is a resort that has the best of both worlds, it is super kid friendly while remaining chic and sophisticated.  I understand that it is difficult to cater to all the needs and demands of families.  Moms want it all when they travel, they’ve worked hard to get there and some might say they expect perfection.  I’d say that the Sheraton, Los Cabos is pretty close to my idea of perfection!
