The adults-only Hotel El Ganzo in San Jose del Cabo is an uber-posh, uber-chic resort catering to wannabe rock stars as well as the real deal. Aspiring singers as well as established stars like Ed Sheeran and Damien Rice have recorded songs at the on-site recording studio, which air on the hotel's internal TV service.
Rooms are a bit on the small side, but they're incredibly stylish, with cement floors, wood plank walls and cool glass balconies that overlook the quaint marina and the well-kept lap pool. Though there's nowhere to spread out a towel on the sand at the marina, guests can hop aboard a very frequent shuttle to a beautiful palm-lined beach.
The rooftop deck and bar is a sight to behold, with gorgeous views and an amazing infinity pool. On Saturdays, it hosts a seriously bumping party that attracts locals and travelers from all over. Guests can grab a free beach cruiser and check out the surrounding area, which is home to galleries, museums, restaurants and shopping.
