Excellant stay from being able to check in 2 hours before the 4;00 pm time until we checked out. Rooms were extremely clean and the staff was extremely curtious. Beautiful location on the pacific side of Cabo San Lucas, no peddlers allowed on the beaches. I highly recommend.

Our room was great. I asked for a quite area. They set us up with an ocean view. Could not have asked for a better location. We attended the fiesta and beach party and had a blast. Roberto (the MC) was hilarious! I'm not a big buffet person, but I have to say the food was good, and lots of... More

Excellent place. Room was very nice and clean. Lobby nice but watch out on time share. Lobby bar good. Pool bar drinks could use better grade of tequila . Sushi bar the tuna was great. Main restaurant had great steak. Theme night could be skipped. Pool rocked. Great place to relax.
