The winners of the Traveler’s Choice were announced this week. The awards are granted by Tripadvisor to destinations, hotels, attractions, and restaurants all over the world. In the case of the Mexican tourism industry, one of the hotels in our country was recognized among the 10 best hotels in the world.

It is the Grand Velas Los Cabos hotel, which is located at San José del Cabo. It occupies the eighth spot on the list.

Tripadvisor is a website that allows the user to evaluate all kinds of businesses related to tourism, in addition to making bookings. For instance, it gives you the option to assess every element of a hotel’s characteristics, such as available space, service, and cleanliness. Its Traveler’s Choice awards are decided based on millions on opinions and grades given by travelers throughout the year. This time, they also took into account reviews published during 2019.

And, in order to completely understand the merit of the winners, we must consider approximately 8.7 million tourism businesses from all over the world are registered on the website.


Eighth best hotel in the world
Grand Velas Los Cabos is a luxury all-inclusive concept hotel. All its rooms have floor to ceiling windows and views to the Sea of Cortés; moreover, most of them are equipped with jacuzzi, premium minibar, artisanal mezcal bottles, and a pillow menu. There are also suites with a private pool and some are completely focused on well-being with aromatherapy kits and a private juice bar.

Gastronomical options are wide with seven restaurants and four bars. There is French, Italian, and Mexican gastronomy to mention some. One of the restaurants offers tasting menus created by Sidney Schutte, a Dutch chef who has won two Michelin stars.

The hotel also has three pools, in addition to night entertainment and a spa. The latter holds comprehensive treatments and a hydrotherapy circuit. While parents rest, children and teenagers have access to workshops and special activities.
