Welk Resort Sirena del Mar
Why We Love This Hotel
- Cliffside residential-style villa resort with lots of on-site activities and an accessible beach
- Take in a picture-perfect view of the iconic rock formation El Arco from the resort's private terrace and pool decks
- At dusk, guests gather around the hotel’s fire pit to see the spectacular sunset display
- Each room has a full kitchen but there's also a Mexican restaurant on the property if cooking isn't your idea of vacation
The Welk Resort Sirena del Mar has a birds-eye view of Cabo San Lucas’ most famous attribute -- the sparkling blue Sea of Cortez. From its cliffside perch, the resort has sweeping ocean views from some rooms and most common areas.
Contemporary Mexican guest villas are all spacious one- and two-bedroom suites, some with pullout couches so families and larger parties can fit comfortably. All have kitchens with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, a plus for those who like to cook or have small kids.
It's a 10-minute taxi ride to the center of town, where guests can stock up on groceries to prepare meals in their kitchens or on the resort’s guest grills. There’s also an on-site restaurant serving Mexican classics and Mediterranean-influenced dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Guests can choose to just lounge by the giant freeform infinity pool with swim-up bar, but excursion opportunities abound in this tourist zone; the hotel staff can arrange everything from a canopy zip-line tour to a horseback beach safari. If you’d rather stick close to your temporary home, rent snorkel equipment and check out the waters you’ve been admiring from above. There's also a game room; lessons in Spanish, Mexican cooking or salsa dancing; and free Wi-Fi.
During whale-watching season from October through March, you might spot humpback whales in action from the resort's pool decks and common areas. The iconic rock formation El Arco is also within sight of the hotel. Colonies of sea lions are often spotted around the arch, making for a picture-perfect boat excursion, as well.
