"Ultimate Luxury - Lived Like Queens for the Weekend!"
Overall, we had the best experience at this villa.
We went for a bachelorette party, and our expectations were far surpassed. The house was absolutely beautiful, almost too big for our group of 10, with each room not only having its own bathroom, but also a sitting area and kitchenette, feeling like an apartment. The views were incredible and seen from almost every angle, it felt like a house built into the rocks, and had so many luxurious amenities (balconies, hammocks, a day bed and wadding pool in the master). No detail was left unnoticed. But by far, the best amenity the house provided was our concierge. Our concierge was Hector, and he was the most incredible host we could have asked for. I had no idea how much help he would be. Being in a different country, he was able to arrange everything we needed. He answered every single time I called. He knew all the contacts in Cabo so he was able to arrange cabs, let us know what activities we should look into, and take care of us in the event we were running behind on our reservation, etc. He also made the best welcome margarita for our group we've ever had - still raving about it! All in all, the house was gorgeous and perfect for us (even though the reviews aren't kidding about all the stairs) but our experience would not have been the same without Hector. Thank you for such a fabulous vacation! Would recommend this place to anyone!!!

The pictures did not do this villa justice.
Beautiful accommodations! Amazing views! There were a lot of stairs, but we were ok with that.

We brought my son and 4 of his best friends for a senior trip.
The villa was perfect! We had enough space for the boys to spread out (offensive linemen for Katy High School). Each had their own room to sleep and relax in. The pool was a fun place to congregate after a day of fishing, or being out on ATVs. The boys used the fire pit to sit around and talk after their nights out on the town. Truly a trip of a lifetime for them. Thank you so much ESSV! and the Villa management team and maids. Couldn't be happier.

Just got back from Cabo where we stayed at Cerca del Cielo.
I would give it 4.5 stars. If you can believe it, the Villa is better than the pictures make it look (and the pictures are top notch). The master bedroom on the top floor is by far the most luxurious room, but everyone was pretty satisfied with the other rooms - they're all nicely arranged and comfortable. Our group of course loved the pool and hot tub, and the front porch (two rockers, two lounge chairs and a big table and chairs) just a few feet from the pool was another hangout to get out of the sun. We also saw whales breaching and leaping from the pool each day, which we didn't expect and was an added bones. The beach is only a 5 minute walk from the Villa and it's spectacular. Beautiful sand, rocky bluffs and waves crashing on the shore. It's not exactly swimmable due to the waves, but some of our group cooled off in the ocean during the day. It's also a beautiful sunset walk and looking back on the Villas from the beach is lovely at night with all the Villas lit up. It doesn't get cold, but semi-cool during February at night, so the gas fire pit was a nightly hangout. Another nice feature was the wifi, and the wifi phone which allowed us to call our families back home for free. Note that there are maids that come in each day and spend a good deal of the day cleaning the Villa. It was nice to have the maid clean the public space each day (the kitchen mainly), and we told her that we only needed the bedrooms cleaned once during the week. Also note that the dishwasher does leak, but we put a towel down and it wasn't a big deal.

"Great view, awesome location, spacious living space"
We loved this place.
The villa was, as previously mentioned, indeed placed on the side of the hill with lots of steps. But no neighbor on one side, which was great. The view was spectacular, and unlike many places in Pedregal, the beach was an easy 4-5 minute walk. We could watch the whales from the balconies. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes and pots, and the living space on the main floor was large and well appointed. Everything very clean and well maintained. The rooms are a bit uneven in terms of quality, which wasn't a big problem for us, but for couples traveling together it might be. The master suite is amazing. Lots of hammocks and outdoor sitting areas that enabled people to find private space so that it never felt crowded. The pool isn't really big, but was perfect size for the young children. Only downside was that the toilets did not all work properly and repeated calls brought a plumber once, who plunged and remedied the situation for a couple of hours.

My group has stayed at this magnificent house twice.
Six bedrooms and the higher you go, the better they get--the master at the top floor has to be seen to be believed. The hot tub flows into the infinity pool with a killer view of the sea. Have seem whales off the coast from the pool. It is not only positioned for the view but you get plenty of sun as well.
The house has all the expected amenities--Wi-Fi, phone, Sat TV, full kitchen, plus plenty of outdoor shaded seating with views. The only drawback is given the many levels, there are a lot of stairs to climb.

We were 5 couples and we enjoyed the views and the spacious rooms.
The layout of the house on a hillside was very interesting and eclectic. The house, pool and the furniture was in very good shape. Only a few negatives. We were aware of many stairs to negotiate. Do not take this lightly. If you want the workout it can be a positive but if anybody has a physical issue this is a problem. We had a few other issues as well. We did not need the 6th bedroom but noticed that it was small and did not smell good? The outdoor propane BBQ does not work properly. It does not have sufficient heat capacity for cooking hot.

"Reach for the Skies Villa"
This is a beautiful, unique and very comfortable villa.
Each bedroom is uniquely painted and appointed and each is located to provide absolute privacy from the others. The furnishings are lavish yet comfortable, the views stunning. The master suite is enormous, private and comfortable. Be aware that the villa is perched on a hill and there are many, many steps -- if you are fit and enjoy stairs, this is the villa for you.
