Just returned from 7 nights stay. The grounds are beautiful. The beach view is incredible with the rocks in the near distance. There are a lot of vendors waiting on the beach for you, but a simple no to each stopped the selling. The rooms are clean and spacious. Not the best sheets and pillows, but certainly wouldn't keep us...

I was at this hotel in mid-February 2017 for my friend's bachelorette weekend. The service is bad, the staff is rude, food is bad/cold, the wait for restaurants are horrendous, some restaurants close 30 minutes later, and I had money stolen from my purse while staff cleaned the room. I just now finally received the "investigation" report . . ....

Depending on what you look for, this hotel may be a hit or miss. Pros: good price for all inclusive hotel in Cabo San Lucas; gorgeous views & several pools, two infinity pools; staff is friendly and helpful; plenty of places to rest at the pools; comfortable rooms; no need to leave the resort, which is quite large, unless you...

room was better than average. If you are somewhat handicapped book your room on the ground floor as not all bldgs. have elevators. Food was good but not outstanding at the buffets. If you like to party, this is definitely your place to be.

This resort is huge. You need to plan accordingly. Building 7 is the best building to book but it is in the back of the property. The front desk staff needs work. The water is not potable so you need bottles replenished daily in your mini fridge. When we didn't receive any for the day (full disclosure, it was the...

Wedding coordinator removed wristbands of wedding party for photos then reception made them pay for new ones!!!!! Food is mediocre. Service staff is super friendly and accommodating but management will scam you at every corner. Also, you can't even go into the...

Everything was good, the staff were excellent! They have a very nice setup with the courtyard/theatre/restaurants. You can party in the front pools or relax in the back. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Everyone should know what to expect before you get there and when to avoid the spring break party crowds. No reason to complain when you...

For those of you who want to drink till you pass out or want to hear people partying at all hours of the night then this is the resort for you! Otherwise, don't come here. The most bizarre resort we have ever been to. Workers nice, food ok, but the guests this resort attracts does not make for a relaxing...

“Building 7 is closer to the ocean, but a long walk from the rest of the resort so not good for anyone with mobility issues.”
