My daughter and I stayed from 12/30/18 - 1/09/19. The room was clean, the breakfast menu was great and was free with our reservation. The drinks at happy hour were made with enough alcohol and tasty. The staff was very friendly. This was the 1st place my wife & I stayed back

Thank you, SierraCalGal, for your review. Yes, we are 'smack dab' in the middle of it all... the best kept secret in Cabo some say. As an Historical Landmark Hotel we try to blend the old with the new which creates it's charm. We hope to see you again and thanks for sharing your thoughts...

To be honest we didn't hang around the hotel at night although it looked like other guests did. It is so central, you are near lively bars and restaurants. Plus we felt totally safe in the area so were happy to be out of an evening. Breakfast is plentiful and cheap. If you want to hang around the hotel, there is a bar and seating areas where you could while away an evening. Very authentic, chilled place. We loved it.

Do you have TV’s in the rooms?
We didn’t, and we didn’t miss it one bit.

We did not have a TV in the single King room. In April. The location is so close to restaurants and entertainment, we likely would never have watched it if it was in the room.

cab I have stayed at both dreams has great food, there ribeye is wonderful, there drinks are strong. the beach is beautiful. but we have decided the all inclusive are just a rip off. dreams is normally 3 to 4 hundred a night Cortez Is only 40 to 50 there is no way to eat and drink the difference and you have no swimable beach. when you get bored then pay another cab ride back to downtown to have fun cheaply. hope this has helped.

"I prefer off the pool - little terrace with my own table and chairs"
"upstairs balcony have a nice view of the property. less noisy. There are larger rooms for bigger families."
"Moved to a floor level, poolside room after the first night. Loved my room on both floors."
"Rooms in the courtyard are quieter with a view of the pool."
"most rooms face pool area - very nice"
