The coveted Five-Star Award and why Los Cabos is celebrating
The best pieces of advice and recommendations come from first-hand experiences. This premise was deeply understood by the founders of Mobil Travel Guide back in 1958, who thoroughly visited establishments for motorists who relied on their suggestions while traversing the Mid-20th-Century United States.
65 years away from its first edition and having established the original 5-Star rating system for hospitality in the United States, Mobil Travel Guide has evolved into Forbes Travel Guide and is the only independent, global rating agency for luxury hotels, restaurants, spas, and ocean cruise ships.
Inspectors travel the world evaluating hundreds of standards to give guests the most reliable information on where to stay, dine and relax to celebrate “the world’s finest travel experiences so that you can book with confidence.”
Did you know that only 0.2% of the hotels evaluated receive 5 Stars, the highest Forbes Travel Guide rating?
Just in 2022, out of an estimated 187,000 hotels worldwide, only 323 excelled at 900 rigorous standards evaluated.
This year, and here is the good news for Los Cabos—drumroll please—Grand Velas Los Cabos has been awarded the coveted 5 Stars and is the first and only All-Inclusive resort in Mexico to get this accolade!
This means you, Los Cabos visitor, will enter a new level of luxury in this place that only a few hotels worldwide can provide.
We hope you can visit soon to celebrate the joy of traveling in style!
