The Grand Velas Boutique Los Cabos, renowned for its "world-class service" and being the sister property to the adjacent five-star resort, provided an experience that was both more and less than what the couple had anticipated. 

With no other guests in sight, the resort's sprawling luxury was exclusively theirs.

"At first, it started as a joke… but it feels more like an episode from ‘Black Mirror,'" he commented in the video, showing off the deserted but beautiful surroundings.

Initially, the couple found humor in the situation, but as time went on, the novelty of being the only guests began to feel increasingly odd.

"Every time I think I see someone that’s not wearing a white uniform, I get excited, only to realize, no, just more contractors working on the place. Which, again, was kind of cool, until it wasn’t," he expressed in the video.

The couple's vacation began with the realization of the resort's unusual quietness. 

As the days passed, the light-hearted jokes they shared about being the only ones there gave way to a sense of bewilderment. 

They found themselves alone in activities, meals, and enjoying a private beach.

Cameron's wonder about the economics of running such a grand resort without guests grew. 


He questioned in a video segment, "How is this place paying for all these lights? How are these fire pits being lit all day, all night for us? Who is paying for all this? This entire kingdom is just for us." 

Despite the luxurious setting, the absence of other vacationers left him with more queries than comfort.

Cameron's astonishment peaked when he noticed the children's area was also deserted. 

The lack of guests became a topic of conversation among his TikTok viewers, who offered various theories and advice. 


Some speculated about alternate realities, while others thought the timing of their visit after the holiday season explained the solitude. 

One viewer advised Cameron to simply enjoy the unique experience: "Just enjoy it, dude. You’re not the CEO, so it’s not your problem."

When the New York Post reached out for a comment, a representative from the resort, Melissa Wisenbaker, explained their commitment to maintaining high standards regardless of guest numbers. 

"Velas Resorts operate at 100% regardless of the number of actual guests staying on property. That is a staff to guest ratio of 3 to 1, versus at many other resorts that are the opposite (3 guests to every 1 staff)," she stated. Wisenbaker emphasized, "Velas Resorts prides itself on offering the very best, not just when it comes to service, but food, accommodations, design, experiences, et al."
