Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We stayed in a Castia. Great food, outstanding service, wonderful location. Great for families and for destination weddings. Built in the side of the mountain which means lots of stairs but oh what a view! Can't wait to return and stay longer.
I read reviews on here and several other sites before booking this place, I thought maybe some people are just too picky. So I decided to give this resort the benefit of the doubt. I CLEARLY MADE A MISTAKE! If you're looking for an affordable place just to stay the night and not wanting any good service, this is the place. The staff is half friendly, half seems like no matter how they treat you they still will have a job so it doesn't matter. July is supposedly "offseason" but yet we still have a hard time getting drinks at the pool and beach area, pretty much be your own waitor/waitress. Poor services at the restaurants also. Not a lot of food options. Room cleaning service come every other day, we only had turn down service the first night we arrived then don't know what happen after that. We were told "room service" is 24 hours, but apparently that doesn't mean food service only house keeping service. Overall, I do not recommend this place if you're looking for good service at an all inclusive resort and I guess you get what you pay for, even in Mexico!
Our wedding and stay at the Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos was everything we dreamed of and more! We highly recommend this resort for those wanting a safe, clean, and fun place to stay while in Cabo! We can't wait to go back!
My wife and I stayed at Sandos Finisterra from July 13 to July 20, 2017 and we would return in a heartbeat. This was our first trip to Cabo and coming from the eastern part of Canada, we wanted to ensure that our chosen resort would not result in a letdown. We settled on the Sandos Finisterra based on its location, amenities and its reviews gathered from multiple sites. Needless to say, we were not disappointed with our selection. From the grounds to the staff, everything about Sandos Finisterra added to our overall enjoyment and stay during the week.Firstly, to our pleasant surprise, we learned that they had upgraded our room upon our arrival to a deluxe bayview overlooking the marina, ocean and the hills. Truly stunning! In addition, the rooms were extremely clean, spacious and had multiple areas for storage. The bed was comfortable and from the AC to the water pressure, everything was in working condition.The grounds are simply breathtaking. Three large pools which are kept in pristine condition, well manicured landscaping and architecture built into the cliffside added to its unique charm and atmosphere.In terms of proximity, the Sandos Finisterra is roughly a 15-20 minute walk to the marina, tours to Land's End, the flea market, nightlife and the shopping mall. My wife and I enjoyed the walk and we never felt hassled by anyone. A simple "no thank you" was all that was needed in terms of merchants wanting to sell you something. The resort's location is ideal for those wanting to be close to the action but sufficiently removed from the hustle and bustle due to its geographic location on the hilltop which created a serene atmosphere.In terms of amenities, we enjoyed the variety of restaurant selections offered to us. Emiliano's was our favourite for dinner. Each morning, we would venture to the Cupcake Cafe where my wife would get her morning latte or coffee. We also had our first couples spa and massage. I was hesitant at first but found the overall experience and facilities truly enjoyable. Take the deep plunge after the jacuzzi for an exhilirating experience. I have read several reviews where customers found the staff unfriendly and unpleasant. We found our experience to be the complete opposite. We were greeted with smiles everyday from our arrival to our departure. Furthermore, staff was courteous and pleasant with our questions and requests. I enjoyed talking to several staff members on a variety of topics ranging from the local flora and fauna, marlin fishing, musical preferences as well as practicing my limited Spanish with them. I thank them for their patience regarding the latter! I had the opportunity to meet Nicki, the General Manager of the resort, and she was both friendly and approachable. She was pleasant while I discussed how much my wife and I were enjoying all the luxuries which the resort had to offer us. We truly enjoyed our time at the Sandos Finisterra and we feel there is no need to look for other alternatives the next time we visit Cabo as we have found our little piece of paradise. We look forward to returning in the near future.
It's been almost 5 months since we returned from our week long trip to Sandos Finisterra. I wish I had written this review immediately so I would've remembered more specifics to share. But I owe it to the excellent service we received at the resort to still write this review. This was a different resort experience than other all inclusives we have visited around the world because of its proximity to town. We went into town almost every day. It was a 10 minute walk to the edge of town and marina. We enjoyed the break from the all inclusive and felt we got a better view and experience of the culture and local scene by doing so. The rooms at this all inclusive were just ok. We did have a balcony and could see the ocean from it but the water was a long way from the hotel rooms. The rooms were very plain and kind of outdated feeling. But they were large and clean. We had a very hard bed that was not comfortable. But others traveling with us had a bed that was very comfortable. So I don't think this is consistent between rooms. The service throughout this resort was very good. You can tell there is a real culture of community service here. Led no doubt by their manager, Nikki, whom we had the pleasure of meeting and visiting with. She was very personable and intelligent and I know will keep making improvements to this resort. Some of our favorites about this resort were the swim up bar and all the fun activities that took place around it. I especially enjoyed music trivia and bingo. Lily from the entertainment team was especially fun to talk to and had the right personality for the job. She pulled you right into the fun. The buffet restaurant is where we had breakfast each morning. What a different atmosphere from other all inclusives where people are buzzing all around you getting food constantly. The buffet itself was in a separate room from where you sat. And the room where you sat was very upscale looking and the music was so peaceful and the view was outstanding. Fernando was the absolute best waiter in there. He made us feel so special. Truly like family. He made my morning start off right each day. This is he first time in all my travels I've ever recalled specific employee names to include in my review even though I didn't write this one until five months later. I think that speaks volumes to the impression these individuals made. Simply the best. We also enjoyed the whale watchers bar, what a beautiful venue for a pre dinner drink. And yes, we did see whales. We also enjoyed the coffee shop where I had a frappucino most days. But the best part of this resort to us was the spa. Top notch. It is built into the side of a cliff and has an exotic feel. We went back two days. We splurged and did the private cabana experience at sunset and it was one of the most romantic experiences of my life. Beautiful view, champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, therapists washing your feet in large copper basins, excellent massages in the breeze and a private open air hot tub for afterwards. Do. It.
