This hotel is located in the Marina in San Jose Del Cabo and has a private beach with all the amenities one could ask for. They also have a 'Container' bar/restaurant that is in an old shipping crate that looks out onto the boats of the Marina. I could not recommend this place anymore than I have been.

My mom and I spent two heavenly afternoons relaxing and swimming at the beach club. Israel and Luis took great care of us, helping us arrange our seats when we needed more shade and ensuring that the chefs accommodated my food allergies. Recommended cocktails are the White Lady and the Tepache Colado--delicious!

Let's just start by saying the service at the beach was amazing. If it wasn't for the kind ,sweet man we got to know as Israel who went above and beyond for us and Luis and Brandon who never missed a step. All took such great care of us and our family.

This hotel is located near the Marina in San Jose del Cabo and a public beach, which is rare on this coast due to the undertow. As one enters the lobby through massive wooden doors, your senses go on alert, the walls behind the reception desk are covered by a busy mural and as you walk towards the elevator there... More

The location sitting over a marina and breakwater access to the ocean made watching the local fishermen and delightful. Early mornings watching from the roof-top infinity pools was great. The service people were friendly and very helpful. The food was great, although the prep and delivery times were a little slow. The room was clean although not overly large. The... More

My wife and I spent 5 nights at Hotel El Ganzo around Halloween 2016. If you're taking a look at this property, you'll probably notice that the room rates are fantastic. The hotel represents tremendous value in an upscale locale. The hotel feels brand new and hip. My only qualms are the location (on a marina rather than the ocean... More

I never miss an opportunity to visit The El Ganzo Beach Club. What a serene, quiet setting with calm waters, white beach and excellent service. We were treated like royalty by Israel, Zeus,Brandon and Luis. They made sure our drinks were full and umbrellas were in just the right position for shade and breeze. This is the best place in...

We were blown away by Ganzo as were all the other guests we met during our stay. The rooftop pool is spectacular and the beach club is so enjoyable. The hotel has a unique style that is very luxurious but not in a stuffy way. There is interesting (and cheeky) artwork scattered throughout for you to discover. Staff were unbelievably... More
