Looking for a romantic dinner with an incredible view? Look no further than Cocina del Mar at the Esperanza Hotel, an upscale eatery overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Bring your loved ones, enjoy top-notch service, and dine like royalty to the soundtrack of crashing waves.
Blue Marlin Ibiza

Just head over to Hotel Me Cabo to get the party started—don’t worry that you’re not staying there, as Blue Marlin Ibiza is open to the public every day. You’ll enjoy live DJ performances and special events throughout the year—including New Year’s Eve and Spring Break pool parties—and easy access to Medano Beach.
Hotel El Ganzo
Located in San Jose, Hotel El Ganzo offers one of the best views of the San Jose Marina. This is a boutique hotel that has its own music studio and tasteful art displayed throughout.

If not, there’s always the rooftop featuring an infinity pool with swim-up bar and a transparent glass hot tub. The rooftop is open to the public—all you have to do is purchase their affordable day pass.
While you’re in San Jose, check out Mar Adentro Hotel, known for Nido, it’s unique “nest” restaurant. Only open for breakfast and lunch, this spot offers comfy cabana beds so you can relax while breakfast is brought to you on a tray. It’s luxury breakfast in bed!
