This was my first trip to Mexico. I travelled with my Mom and Sister-in-law for a girls getaway. We were basically looking for a great beach and some relaxation. The hotel gets good reviews. Although I had an enjoyable week, I would not return to this location. The hotel is average. The food was okay. Breakfast you can't really go wrong but the rest of time it was just okay. The tide is so strong off the beach that you can't swim in the ocean. That was the biggest disappointment for me!! Pool was quite nice and a good size. The staff at the hotel were fabulous!! Always helpful, really pleasant people. Nightly entertainment was quite good. They had singers and musicians not the campy shows some places put on. Wifi not available in your room but pretty good in the main lobby. I paid $10 for the access code and had wifi for the week. We took a few bus trips into the art district of San Jose Del Cabo. You have to do this. It's the local bus, the hotel staff will help you figure it out but it is an experience in itself. The art walk was a fun night out. We booked dinner in town at a place called Mi Casa. Great food and lovely atmosphere. Know your jewellery prices before you go...lot's of silver to buy but I thought the prices were quite elevated compared to what you would pay in Canadian. Be prepared to haggle. We took the bus into Los Cabos, about a 40 min bus ride. Find Cabo Wabo if you go, the food was great. Los Cabos is much more touristy than San Jose Del Cabo. Where our hotel was, seemed to be a fairly low key area. There's also a shopping area across from the hotel so you can pick up food, toiletries whatever you need. Take American or Pesos...either currency was welcome. My Sister-in-Law and I went on a snorkeling trip to Cabo Pulmo Marine Reserve. (while we were snorkelling my Mom went for a massage...said it was great!) This cost us each $200 US. You get picked up early in the morning in an air-conditioned mini bus fairly long drive to the reserve. They provided sandwiches and drinks along the way. Interesting drive through the desert. You have to be in fairly good health to do this trip. The dive boat carries about 16 people. The ladder to climb back on board is a very difficult thing to navigate. Coral is unfortunately dying....still the snorkeling was pretty great. We swam close to a sea lion colony so they were in the water with us. Very cool. Also swam in a wall of Jack Fish that was incredible. I've never seen so many fish....one of the coolest snorkeling experiences for me. After snorkeling they took us to a bar/restaurant near the beach for lunch. Excellent food. Couple of little shops for souvenirs at the Marine Preserve. Nice T-shirts. A little pricey for the excursion but had a wonderful day. If you go to San Jose del Cabo, find a snorkeling or diving trip. Well worth it. We had a great time, the people everywhere we went were lovely. Try flavoured tequila. Had a wonderful vanilla infused tequila with Morgan, a shop keeper in Los Cabos who pulled out the tequila to finalize our shopping deals!! Mexico was great, only downside was the hotel food and not being able to swim off the beach.
Wonderful place to stay! The grounds are insane, you don't have to leave the hotel! Enjoy all the pools, beach, food, activities, and shows without leaving! There is an activity board with daily activities listed and announcements so you don't miss them.
Well where to start. The food was terrible and the drinks were watered down. I don't know how this place is getting four stars on average. The food buffet style was horrible weird combinations along with watered down drinks. I would expect more quality food with the price you pay. I think you should pay attention to the front desk change your getting back JESUS charged me 50.00 for three days of WIFI once I found out it was only 10.00 a day I confronted the manager which in return had me talk to JESUS. JESUS ended up opening is own wallet and refunding me my money. The rooms are dirty and are not the quality you would expect.
My sister and I went for one week at this resort. It was great. It is a small, relaxed resort. The food was amazing. We were a little worried about only being 2 restaurants but it was never a problem. The room was a nice size, and spotlessly clean. The bed was a little firm but the pillows were amazing. Super friendly staff. Around the pool area the speakers were a little to loud but we spent our time in the beach and was very relaxing. We were served our drinks right under the palapa. The art work is a little different around the lobby and hallways...lots of "Boobs".lol. I would go back in a heartbeat!!
We went for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and were pleasantly surprised. We booked this as a package deal with Air Transat, but they contracted to WestJet for the flight. All went smoothly during the web check in and WJ did acknowledge online that we got our baggage included with the price. Transat was at the airport to shuttle us to the resort as always. The resort is small, only 2 buildings, 1 buffet, and 1 ala carte, 3 pools. Being June, the resort wasn't busy. We could grab a chair anywhere around the pool or beach. The 2 different swim up bars were an added bonus. We spent a couple of afternoons in the rooftop adult pool. The room was large and contained a king bed, 2 side tables, dresser, couch, coffee table and tv. It also included a safe, stocked bar fridge, alarm clock & coffee maker, iron & ironing board. The fridge was stocked daily with water, pop and beer. The first morning only they offered complimentary coffee, otherwise it was for purchase in the gift store. We always bring our own kettle and coffee so we were good. The bed was comfy and our room quiet, until the evening entertainment started. Wow!! That was loud!! I'm surprised the neighboring resorts don't complain. I'd hate to be trying to put children to sleep. Thank goodness it only lasted until 9:30pm - 10:00pm. Resort was spotless, rooms very clean, staff were excellent, food was always fresh and I was quite surprised at how hot the buffet food was. The ala carte was excellent. You are able to book between 8am - 11am and it was a breeze for us. Might not be that easy during high season. Food was excellent. We booked twice and had 2 different menus, which was nice. Other than the resort, there is not much happening in the little town of San Jose. Pretty quiet area. We are used to walking on the beach and enjoying a beach bar or restaurant along the way and there are none here. The sand was too hot to walk on during the day so the beach was very quiet. There is no swimming in the ocean along this stretch of beach. Local buses run every few minutes to San Jose. If you want more action, you'd be better to find a place near Cabos San Lucas. I'd definitely recommend this resort to folks wanting to take their families, lay on the beach or by the pool and just relax!!
