“Great location and value”
Reviewed 14 May 2011

We booked a room at the Positano Hotel that came in a package flight and hotel through Expedia. We did not have great expectations because sometime photos online don’t show you the reality of the size and quality of the place.

The patio-garden and nice-sized pool are beautiful and would be great for a family gathering or event. The room was ample, air-conditioned, clean, and well maintained with a nice balcony overlooking the pool. The each room has a refrigerator, microwave, cook stove, sink, and dishes if you want to do some light cooking. While the hotel is located next to the busy highway, the rooms are well insulated for sound. There is parking in front of the building.

We had great customer service by Jonathan and Vito. They provided breakfast (yogurt, watermelon, and toast) and were helpful in giving directions to beaches and restaurants. The hotel is located close to Cabo San Lucas (10 min) and to the prettiest beaches along the corridor (10-15 min). It is also close to Costco and Walmart. You’ll need a car to get around, but we didn’t never had problems finding parking in Cabo San Lucas.

The location is nice because it is away from the craziness of the bars, crowd, and timeshare/activities representatives found downtown, but still close enough to get to restaurants, activities, and sites.

It was our first time going to Cabos. The crew (Vito, Johnathan, and the woman that cleaned our rooms) helped make our visit to Cabos the best vacation ever! They were always working to keep this small hotel clean and well maintained. The pool area was always clean and well landscaped. I loved interacting with the staff. They really did treat us like friends! I had caught some fish after fishing the Sea of Cortez. I brought it back to the hotel and offered some to Vito. He was so grateful, he cooked up an authentic italian dinner for me and my friends! Amazing! Hope I get to visit them again!

Room Tip: The go cart track is noisey

I went to Cabos to celebrate my 28th b~day with my friend Paola and we stayed at Positano Hotel for a week. We loved it so much since we get there. Our suite was big and really clean. I really felt like I was in my own house. Everyone is so nice at the hotel and very helpful. I definitely recommend this hotel because of the great price, amazing service, really nice people, quiet place, great location and If I ever go back to Cabos I'll stay here again. Thanks to everyone at the hotel Positano, but specially to Jonathan and Vito for making us feel like we were in our house. P.s. Vito made a pasta for us and it was soo good.:)

We had a great time and this hotel was PERFECT for what we needed. Here is just a heads up for others:
The rooms are large with high ceilings, terra cotta tile floors, white linens, and pops of color - perfect for hot weather - you will not feel cramped at all. Plenty of places to plug stuff in like cell phones, etc. All rooms have a small kitchenette with a table and chairs. The kitchenette was wonderful. We made our own coffee each day and there was a larger than normal minifridge to store snacks and water (or even enough to make a dinner). The cleaning lady provided us with a coffee maker after seeing our make shift one which was really thoughful. The bad economy has hit everyone - the free breakfast had much to be desired so I wouldn't necessarily depend upon it. Go and get your own stuff and use your kitchenette. Also the restaurant the website talks about was closed (however we were there during the low season so check first). There was not even a bottle of water to buy.
The pool and gardens are BEAUTIFUL! But again no one was serving drinks or anything like that. Go get your own stuff. Our neighbors told us they used the BBQ and fridge at the pool and made their own dinner.
Each entrance (front door and out to the balcony) is a sliding glass door which brought the breezes and light in wonderfully, but if you are worried about security I could see this as being a problem for some. We didn't bring laptops or expensive electronics or jewelry so it didn't worry us and there was a safe to store our passports.
I was also a little surprised by the go-cart park near by, but as long as you aren't hanging around the hotel during the day - the noise won't bother you - it's all closed up by 9pm. Also you probably only hear it while your on the balcony and probably not when you are down by the pool.
The bathroom is basically open to the room (the ceiling doesn't close at the top) so not all that private, but I really appreciated the almost open air shower - you aren't closed into some mildewy bathroom - the water in Cabo smells a bit sulfury so the less closed in you are the better.
Jonathan, at the reception desk was VERY helpful. Letty was the house keeper who brought us things without us asking. So if you want a place for a great price and not all the frills you don't want to pay for this is the hotel for you. Also easy parking.

Wow what a stay we had at Hotel Positano, It was Prefect we couldn't ask for more. It is so peace full away from all the noise and in a great location not to close to the beach. The owners of the Hotel are onsite and are pleasant and happy to have you there. Vito the owner wakes up every morning to have his cup of coffee out by the Beautiful pool he has, and he knows of the Best places to visit while your in Cabo. Johnathan a nice young man who is family with owner is always there to help. Beautiful stay I 110% recommend for anyone to stay here they sure know how to make you feel at home! And is very CLEAN!!!! Nice Beds.
