Sheraton Hacienda del Mar Golf & Spa Resort
- What's Included
It is a beautiful Resort along the coastal waters of the Pacific and Sea of Cortez. The Timeshare Resort shares the facilities along with the Sheraton Hotel group. The hotel is some 15 minutes away from the town of Cabo San Lucas and 30 minutes away from Cabo San Jose. Other means to the resort are the local buses and taxis. Beware of the insurance when renting a car. National/Enterprises wanted $39 per day for the minimal Mexican coverage and $59 per day for the all inclusive insurance plus government taxes of $20 USD. So buy your insurance online instead of getting "fast talked".What was the bad? Parking is sometimes tough. There are underground parking but some spaces are tandem. Good luck if someone Parks behind you.Ice machines didn't work in our building the entire time we were there. Asked for additional blankets which never came. Maid service was excellent but they do not tell you it is $6 per day plus a mandatory $1 contribution to the Children's Medical Foundation.There are no BBQ cooking areas. Cooking in our room was a two burner electric range, microwave, toaster oven and a refrigerator. Workers seemed very friendly and hospitable. Costco, Walmart and Home Depot are 10 minutes by car towards Cabo San Lucas. Restaurant facilities, pool and hot tubs are nice. A calendar of events are available for each day. Food is not outrageously expensive at the resort. We chose to eat in town and around the marina. We enjoyed the Fisherman on the Marina; Mazatlan and Mariscos Las Tres Islas in Cabo San Lucas. Loved Jasmine in Cabo San Jose - old town.
We've been coming to Cabo for many years and often stay here. The staff is wonderful and the property is immaculate. Excellent restaurants with a variety of cuisine. The pools are wonderful and the SPA shouldn't be missed. Recommend highly!
I recently stayed here for a wedding trip. Upon arrival, we were greeted by lush grounds and stunning architecture. My wife & I were blown away. We had requested an early check in, and were able to get into our room at 1pm on arrival.The room, 1915, was a good size on the SPG floor of the main building and had a partial ocean view. The only downside to the room was across the hall, there appeared to be some random mechanical room that sounded like someone was blowdrying their hair 24/7. Our first morning it was a little annoying, but it essentially became white noise. Anyway...The main infiniti pool area is great. Yes there are chair hogs, but I was never not able to get a seat. I was there by 8/830 am getting towels and holding a spot down. There's clear signs that say pool towels dont reserve chairs, but NO ONE listens. So when no one is listening you have to join in. It really wasnt bad though. If you've been on a cruise, you know how bad it can be to get a spot. This was nothing like that.Food-wise, we never had a bad meal. The restaurant by the pool has some good items. The nachos were good, the hot dog was glorious & the pork tacos were pretty good.Girasoles for breakfast was excellent! It's $19pp for unlimited breakfast, mimosas & bloodys. We went twice.... the first day was slooooooow. It took forever to get our food, but the chiliqueles made up for the wait. The 2nd time, it wasnt as crowded and the food came fast, the mimosas were floowing as were the marys. We didnt make it to Tomatoes for breakfast, but everyone I spoke to who went to both, greatly preferred Girasoles.Drinks-The swimup bar thats hidden on the east side of the resort is a great spot. They also have happyhour from 11am-12pm.The beach bar has two for one drinks daily from 2 - 4pm. Take advantage of this! They will give you grocery bags of beer on ice if you want to bring a bunch of beer back to your spot by the pool.The tequila bar is a great spot in the evening.No one was in the sports bar when we were there.Pitayhas has a late night all you can drink option for $35pp I believe.The groundsThey're beautiful! Stunning architecture, flowers, rockwalls everywhere. It looks the part! Random other tipsSign up for Starwood Preferred Guest rewards before your trip. Wifi is free to SPG members.Dont wait in line for coffee at the coffee place outside the main lobby. The coffee bar is poorly run and there's often a line for no reason. If you see a line, come back. Almost daily, you'd have a long line one minute then none 20 mins later. Also, the free coffee you get from the card in your room is not good. Be forewarned.Visit the happy hour spots listed aboveWhen they have the cookout in the main courtyard... go! It looked and smelled amazing, and its the one regret I have, as we did not attend.All together, this is a great resort. Ignore the debbie downers who say it looks dated. Everything was great & I look forward to staying again in the future
I was a little concerned after reading some of the reviews on Trip Advisor. The reviews seemed very mixed. We were very satisfied with the hotel and would definitely return. The grounds are simply gorgeous. The pools were beautiful and chairs around the pool comfortable. Our room was spacious as was the bathroom. Whoa! The water pressure was a bit intense! We were there for our conference so our breakfast was included. I must admit that it would have been expensive if not included. However, the omelets were great along with all of the numerous other choices. Mimosas for breakfast- how can you go wrong?The special dinners in the courtyard were so unique and beautiful. We could watch them prepare from our veranda every night. I didn't mention that our veranda was huge and such an awesome place to just people watch each day. We were always amazed at the attention to detail for the themed dinners. They were all delicious! We had excellent service everywhere except the pool bar. The meals were wonderful poolside but you would have to wait quite some time for your meal or for your drinks. Considering that each is tipped well I would have thought that the service would have been more efficient. However, one waiter was exceptional and on our last day, we finally could receive our beverages promptly. Way to go Ignacio!! I would highly recommend especially for couples or slightly mature singles. If you are looking for relaxation at a beautiful location- this is your destination!
We booked a week at the Sheraton through Costco who provided free breakfasts, $100 per person for dining and $50 per person at the spa. The room was nice, the shower was spectacular - lots of instant hot water with a strong spray. The bed and pillows were also perfect. We can not say enough about the helpfulness of the staff, particularly Angelina Garcia - Guest Relations Manager. She helped us with problems we had, since we did not speak Spanish. Adelina was our hostess for the breakfast buffet which had a huge selection to choose from. After the first morning, she appeared at our table with a mimosa without being asked. There was a variety of restaurants to pick from for each meal. The hotel fronted a wonderful beach, though swimming was not recommended due to the coral reef. We chose chairs overlooking the Sea of Cortes and were quickly provided with an umbrella for shade. There is a chapel which had a Catholic mass at 5:00 Sunday night. Also, there was a mini Starbucks at the entry to the resort. 2 Coupons for free coffee or tea were provided each day. We are planning another visit here in the not to distant future. Highly recommended.
