Ah! Do not miss Sunday’s special paella brunch at Mirador Ocean View Restaurant …and try the grilled octopus with fine herbs (to die for!)

Origins

Built in the 19th century it all started as a family home, which was later transformed into an art academy. The building also served as post office, police station and school-orphanage before becoming a hotel in 2010. It was renovated under the careful supervision of INAH (Instituto Nacional de Antroplogia e Historia) and it was decorated with inspiration on the colourful Mexican colonial style and the classic touches of the Mediterranean elegance. The current owners are very much present in the running of the hotel and take care of the building and its soul as if they had built it themselves.

The Review

A landmark in the magic Town of Todos Santos, within an oasis of serenity in Baja California Sud, Guaycura Boutique Hotel exudes Colonial elegance with hints of Mediterranean charm. Guests feel as if they were in a cozy and unpretentious Latin mansion from last century.  The terracotta floors, ceramic tiles, floral motifs and colourful tones of the lobby welcome visitors and transport them back to an older Mexico when time didn’t fly by.

Upon arrival, no evening is better spent than sipping on a glass of perfectly chilled wine in the rooftop of the hotel with its stunning views of the city and the sunset over the ocean. On the next day, after waking up well rested and refreshed in spacious and tastefully decorated suites, guests are invited to indulge in a day of relaxation, contact with nature and culinary adventure at the Faro Beach Club & Spa. Taking up yoga classes by the breezy ocean, enjoying some delicious seafood dishes, walking on the golden sand by the waves, pampering oneself with a personalized spa treatment, and sipping on a Guaycura margarita in the infinity pool (must try!), are some of the temptations that await for you.

As the afternoon comes to an end, visitors head up to the Mirador Ocean View Restaurant to take their privileged seats and marvel at how the sun slowly and magnificently sets over the Pacific Ocean. By then it would be time to start to delight in the captivating set of choices from the well thought and varied menu including grilled meats, seafood, salads and inviting desserts, accompanied by a wide-ranging selection of juices, wines and spirits.  To finish the night off, a quick stroll through the picturesque streets of Todos Santos, to appreciate its architecture, breathe a bit of its history, and perhaps buy some local crafts from highly skilled artisans.

The genuine warmth of the staff, friendliness of the locals and fortunate weather of Todos Santos create the perfect scenario for Guaycura Hotel to offer the possibility of a well-deserved escapade, one we should all experience.
