Health & Safety
At Cabo Villas Beach Resort & Spa, the health and safety of our guests and our employees is of the utmost importance to us. As part of our commitment to you during COVID-19, we have implemented the following standards and practices to ensure that your stay here with us is as safe as it is enjoyable.
Cabo San Lucas, MX, Jan 15th, 2021
The Cabo Villas Family cares about the health and wellbeing of our guests and all our personnel, which is why we have not lowered our guard and continue with our standards of cleanliness and social distancing.
As you may now know, the CDC has issued an order taking effect on January 26th, 2021, requiring all air passengers arriving to the US from a foreign country to get tested no more than 3 days before their flight departs and to provide proof of the negative result or documentation of having recovered from Covid-19 to the airline before boarding the flight.
We have now implemented an accessible testing process in partnership with AMC Hospital in a medical center on site, with an immediate delivery of the required vaccination certificate.
As an effort in supporting our guests, Cabo Villas Beach Resort & Spa will cover the cost of this test by offering a $50 USD resort credit, per guest, per room, to be used during your stay for Food and Beverages at our consumption centers*.
In the special event a guest is tested positive, AMC hospital will provide FREE medical consulting to all our guests. Any medication or treatment needed will be at their own cost, however, will be receiving a 50% discount of regular price.
Special rates for our brand-new Corazon Tower, will also be offered for anyone needed to extend stays for the reason mentioned above.

We are very blessed here to say the least, and we look forward to serving you!
