I recently enjoyed a short stay at Chileno Bay Resort. The property has many room categories from king rooms up to large 2, 3 & 4-bedroom residence suites which I will detail more below.
The landscaping and property décor are fantastic with a warm contemporary vibe using lots of natural woods and marble as design elements. The pool area is huge with 3 separate pools, with the one nearest to the ocean being adult only. The furthest from the ocean is a shallow family pool which is flanked by a grassy lawn that hosts a dozen outdoor games to keep kids from tots to teens engaged. Immediately next to that pool is both a teens room with billiards, Ping-Pong, gaming devices, foos ball and several board games and small movie theatre. The kids club is also great with staff willing to entertain and care for your kids. The proximity of the kids/teens club and the game lawn to the central pool areas is certainly an upside if you are traveling with kids.
The pools have something for everyone and all the pool and beach areas have luxurious lounge chairs to match the luxurious service. Staff ratios are very high and while they are always there and aware of your needs you hardly notice their bustling around you. The Chileno Bay has one of the few swimmable beaches in Cabo so if beach side is important you will get it there. There is also a water sports center on the beach which offers paddle boards, kayaks, etc. a rare find in any resort in Cabo San Lucas.
There are 2 restaurants at Chileno Bay. The signature restaurant, Comal, is perched over the beach with fantastic views, serves to a very high standard. Food quality was fabulous, and service was excellent. There is also a lunchtime taqueria with burgers, salads and sandwiches sprinkled in. Food here was authentic high-end Mexican with other choices to keep everyone happy. While the kid’s menu had the standard pizza/burger/chicken fingers I was pleasantly surprised to see healthy options as well.
We enjoyed a garden view king room (entry level) which far exceeded expectations. The room is more akin to a junior suite in most other resorts at 588 square feet. The combined bedroom and sitting area are very generous along with a walk-in closet, large free-standing tub and two showers (one indoor and one outdoor) in the bathroom. Our son slept on a roll away and there was plenty of space and it did not feel as though it was in the way. We also had a nice outdoor patio facing the pool and gardens.
In addition to just chillin’ at Chileno I spent a couple of hours doing a site inspection and was treated to seeing some of the high roller gems that exist on this property. There is an oceanfront six-bedroom villa with private pool, indoor and outdoor kitchens, fire pits and everything short of the helicopter pad that any high roller might need.
We also toured 2- and 3-bedroom residence suites and Sky Suites which were stunning. Some had private pools, and all had indoor and outdoor kitchens.
The hotel offers a plethora on the activities. Chileno Bay has a joint venture with one of the best golf courses in Cabo as well as complementary water toys (kayaks etc) and a huge gym. The gym has around 12 cardio stations, 10 or so weight machines, stretching areas and complementary fitness classes. The spa is large and impressive and has a magnificent water and relaxation area. I would point you to the properties website which is comprehensive and can give you an idea of the many options available.
Chileno Bay totally lives up to the high end tranquil ultra-service-oriented reputation that they have worked hard to earn. And while this is a high-end resort I would consider the price point to offer good value. I highly endorse this property for both family and adult only vacations. We hope to go back soon. As a side note as of this writing in February 2019 the hotel has started its last phase of buildings and there is construction going on which is slated to be complete within the next year.
