Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We stayed here for 5 nights with two friends in the Deluxe bay view suites with stunning views of the marina (and suffering dolphins at Cabo Dolphins) from our balcony. Most of the staff is friendly, inviting and accommodating. Norma, a waitress by the adults pool, Ishmael at the VIP pool, and Alexa from entertainment staff were amazing. Santiago, our 'greeter' was also super friendly and welcoming. We loved our time here at Sandos Finisterra with 2 of our friends who flew in from Australia. I could not have stayed any longer though – not enough variety of restaurants/food to choose from. We had "purple bands" which is one down from the black. This meant we had access to "top-shelf" spirits (aka, bottom-shelf in America - Jose Cuervo, Absolut, at best) and had access to the VIP pool. WARNING: This is a smoking hotel, so be prepared to catch wind of people smoking cigarettes and cigars everywhere but inside restaurants. We were down-wind quite a few times from large groups of smokers by the adult pool and it was disgusting. Our friends’ room next door was supposed to be non-smoking, but reeked of it as soon as you walked in. They were able to move them however. PRO TIP: BYO Water Bottle/Drink Cup/Straw – they are an “eco-friendly” resort, which means they ‘recycle’ their cups – aka rinse them all in a big sink and continue using them (Rinse, as in, no soap). They also don’t provide straws unless you specifically ask for one, which they discourageBecause it's an all-inclusive, I'll break it down by location/restaurant: Don Diego – buffet restaurant, only went here for breakfast, dinner for one night. Breakfast was so-so. Ask for a nutella crepe behind the counter though, they were on point!Emiliano’s – the Italian restaurant is decent, but won’t blow you away. You don’t go to Mexico for Italian food, I’ll leave it at that. Agave – This is the “steakhouse” which is also the pool bar/restaurant. Their unlimited chips/guac buffet every day is probably why I picked up an extra kilo upon returning, but they were amazing! Could not get enough. We only had dinner there one night, I had “crispy tacos” which was mostly just deep-fried tortillas, but my husband and friends all ordered the steak and they were amazed at the quality. Tortuga – the beachfront restaurant near the lower pool is severely without. We waited more than half an hour for our initial drinks which were left on the bar counter. I had to go up and get them myself. We waited over an hour for our food which was all quite simple and left something to be desired. Never went back. The service was terrible. Although it does get chilly down there and they did provide me with a shawl which was nice! Whalewatchers – this bar has amazing views and decent drinks. Has an upscale feel to it and a pool table. Hector, the main bartender here was very friendly! VIP Pool – if you have purple or black bands, you can sit out here and it’s really nice and very quiet. The pool is more like a large hot-tub however, so if you want a cool/refreshing swim, go to the main pools. Ishmael the bartender here is amazing, funny, and super helpful. You can get 1800 tequila here so the drinks/margaritas are the best at the resort. Pros: Service, location, proximity to the marina and restaurants, beautiful grounds, filtered/purified water available at no cost, all-inclusive available Cons: No swimming at the beach, spirits are very low-quality, smokers, towel cards were extremely annoying to keep track of, reused cups
Just came back and had an excellent time. My two young nieces and I certainly enjoyed Federico's yoga classes. The variety of pools and restaurants was outstanding. The entertainment team keeps a lot of people busy every day with different events.
This resort is breathtakingly beautiful. Well manicured grounds and excellent service every day. The only cons are that the food is not very good in any of the restaurants. Also, there is heavy pressure to sell you time shares. When you first arrive, they bring you drink after drink to soften you up for a "VIP" breakfast the next morning which includes a sales pitch. Agreeing to the breakfast really earns you nothing, unless you are interested in buying. Best skipped. Oh, and don't expect to swim on the beach. It is dangerous and off-limits. Other than that, it is a clean, beautiful, well run establishment.
Ismael is the best bartender/pool Butler ever. This is our third straight year visiting there. He makes everything happen. Service unprecedented. He is the best always. Thanks ISh. Xox. Brian an Nancy
I wanted to give a shoutout to Norman who is a waiter in the buffet restaurant Don Diego. Two weeks ago we arrived late at the Sandos and went to Don Diego's for a late dinner. It was our 25th anniversary and Norman went all out for us bringing us sombreros, shots of tequila, special caramel sauce for our churros, and taking several fun pictures of us laughing and drinking our tequilas. He even put a fake mustache on my husband to make him an official caballero! We had a wonderful night and the pictures he took are my favorite of the trip. We never got back to Don Diego for an evening meal to tell him thanks again for all his attention and efforts he went to making our trip to Cabo and the Sandos very memorable. I hope you can convey our thanks to him for making our anniversary special.
