  1. The Cape's atmosphere can be a bit more reserved. If you're looking for a more social and interactive atmosphere, this may not be the resort for you. But if you're seeking peace and quiet, The Cape Thompson is a great choice.

  2. During peak wedding season, the resort can become crowded with wedding guests, leading to less privacy and a less relaxing atmosphere. Some of the resort's amenities, such as the pool bar, may be closed for private wedding events, limiting the options for non-wedding guests.


  1. Try the Spicy Sandia cocktail at Point Break pool bar. This refreshing drink combines watermelon, pepper, lime, and mezcal for a unique and delicious taste.

  2. Stop by the lobby bar in the morning for a signature coffee. Made with Mexican coffee, cinnamon, and a few secret ingredients, it's the perfect pick-me-up to start your day.
