Owned by AMX Baja Holdings, a subsidiary of the privately-owned real estate investment consortium Steadfast Companies, the resort is located in the Mexican municipality of Los Cabos at the southernmost tip of the Baja California peninsula, just fifteen miles from Los Cabos International Airport.
The five-story resort is undergoing a $10 million renovation of its guest rooms, conference facilities and public spaces that is expected to be completed in early 2012.
Wyndham Cabo San Lucas Resort, adjacent to the Marina Cabo San Lucas, puts business and leisure travelers in the heart of the town’s action and attractions. The resort’s central location gives guests immediate access to the town’s boardwalk, restaurants, nightlife and shopping and is convenient to the area’s world-class championship golf courses, pristine beaches and natural attractions.

This opening represents our commitment to grow the brand in key vacation destinations while providing travelers with Wyndham’s upscale accommodations and personalized services.”
Guest rooms and junior suites are decorated with traditional Mexican colors and feature contemporary furnishings, high-speed wired and wireless Internet access, satellite television and safe deposit boxes. Most rooms offer balconies that look out upon the marina, town or the Sea of Cortez.
The rooftop pool features a restaurant, swim-up bar, poolside lounges and children’s area. For beach-goers, the resort offers complimentary shuttle service to and from Médano Beach, or ‘Playa el Médano,’ the main beach in Cabo San Lucas.
