The exclusive, gated community of Montecristo Villas sits within an enclave of opulence known as Quivira Los Cabos. Its 1,850 acres (750ha) of coastal real estate await to entertain, pamper and indulge. Villa guests have access to the pools and spas of two nearby resorts and a Jack Nicklaus-designed ocean-view golf course. The exclusive Quivira shopping mall has The Market, a dining outlet inspired by the food halls of Europe. Villas are individually owned so interiors vary, but all are reliably impressive, as are the infinity pools and views from the outdoor jacuzzis.

2. Villa Sol #26 – Homes & Villas by Grand Solmar

Ideal for families, this three-and-a-half star accommodation sleeps eight in four smart bedrooms. The poolside views from the villa’s private terrace stretch over rooftops to the ocean beyond. A full-sized kitchen is impressively appointed, while soft robes and marble bathrooms add a little extra luxury. Daily housekeeping is an extra, as is a nightly turn-down service. For the young and young at heart, the complex has a water park of the snaking slide variety.

3. The Residences at Hacienda Encantada

Hotel, Luxury

Residence has a suitably upmarket ring to it. This wow-inducing set up, where Mexican tradition meets modern luxury, is set in a community of individually designed villas and houses all walkable to central Cabo.

The five-bedroom villa comes with an infinity pool, hot tub and ocean-facing patio with barbecue facilities. Marble meets natural wood interiors and characterful pops of art make for a classy yet relaxed space for your stay. Bathrooms include bathrobes and designer toiletries.

This low-rise block of villas built on the rocky hills above Cabo San Lucas enjoys spectacular views across the city to the ocean. The two- or three-bedroom apartments come with private dipping pools, which jut out from the balcony. Head there to cool off with champagne in hand after a day in the balmy Baja sunshine. The villas are smart with muted tones.

A four-star villa straddling the two halves of Los Cabos, Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, Villa Oceano is ideally located. Credit vouchers for local activities are part of the package as is a free airport transfer, dedicated concierge and, not forgetting, a margarita upon arrival. This charming duplex, which can be rented as a two- or four-bedroom unit, has a private pool with views of the sun-shimmered Sea of Cortez. Take a few steps from the villa and onto the beach to feel the soft sands between your toes.
