Known affectionately as Cabo, the former fishing village of Cabo San Lucas has grown into a fiesta-fueled beach resort at the tip of Mexico‘s Baja California Peninsula. But if the bars and clubs aren’t your thing, there’s a choice of hacienda-style hotels, boutique boltholes, family-run gems or chic urban beach houses where you’ll be able to pass a serene holiday in the sun. Take boat trips in search of dolphins, swim with whale sharks or paddleboard around the much-photographed rock formation and local landmark El Arco (the arch).

Sophisticated Scandi with rustic touches describes the aesthetic at the Bahia Hotel and Beach House. In one direction you’re just steps away from Cabo’s nightlife but head east a short drive along the coast and you’ll find Playa El Medano, one of the most swimmable stretches of coastline in the Sea of Cortez, as the Gulf of California is also known. Bahia has in-house Bar Esquina and SUR, an open-air beach restaurant which hosts live DJs while you dine on octopus tacos, grilled red snapper and a cerveza or glass of Baja wine.

At this large marina-front four-star hotel in downtown Cabo, you can choose a city-view room or one perfect for people-watching, overlooking the boats. Either way the rooms are large, clean and comfortable with plenty of extras thrown in, so it’s a good-value option. Making your stay worthwhile are the helpful staff and the three restaurants, including Vista Roof Restaurant, a great spot to watch the sun set over the marina while eating fresh seafood — it sounds unusual, but the sea bass with mango is great.

The 12-room Los Milagros is a quieter, more personal hideaway compared to many of the hulking tourist-towers in Cabo San Lucas. A fountain bubbles in a flower-festooned courtyard and the shade from palms around the plunge pool keeps things cool and tranquil. The main bars, clubs and restaurants are all just a short walk away. Los Milagros is a boutique hotel on a budget, ideal for families, golfers and surfers looking for a little authenticity in Cabo.

Hotel Mar de Cortez claims to be one of the first hotels ever opened in Cabo back when it was a little fishing village. It’s full of charm and personality, having been family-run for the past 45 years. Don’t expect sleek contemporary lines or modern fixtures and fittings, just anticipate genuine warmth and hospitality from your hosts. There’s a pool with a terrace area, filled with palm trees and shrubs, and a large sofa to relax in beneath the shade of the lobby’s high ceilings.
