We spent the day renting boards and eating lunch at 7 seas restaurant, so this review only covers our experience from that. That said, the hotel reminds me a little cool Hawaiian bungalow type hotel with a small pool and great landscaping (banana trees, coconut palms, etc). The beach (Acapulquito) is good for beginning to intermediate surfers--at least in early... More

We were staying some days in this small hotel in front of one of the best places to surf. Our room was very comfortable and clean, the food in the restaurant was fabulous , a little expensive but worth it. The staff were fantastic especially Antonio who works at the bar. We just like to comment on the bad experience... More

We are very sorry you had to go through that. We are fixing the confusion of having 2 different choices available for the service: the private trip and the taxis. Taxis are old vans and some guest prefer newer and safer vehicles. We are lost however on who quoted the $25 usd since the ongoing fare from the Unions is... More

We absolutely loved this hotel. It is small and beautiful. The rooms are lovely and the restaurant is delicious. The beach is right in front of the hotel. It is a little rocky, but people were out there everyday surfing. For the price, this is hands down the best hotel we stayed at in Cabo.

Thank you for your valuable feedback, we try to keep restaurant and hotel in continuous improvement. The right surf brake favors the non-rocky side. To swim there is also a space on the left where only sand is found. More

The hotel was great, but their taxi service was awful. On our departure day, we ask for a taxi at the Front Desk with almost an hour in advance. What a disappointment! The taxi arrived almost 20 minutes late. We almost missed our flight back home. In such a great place, this service should be up.

We truly apologize for your bad experience; we are fixing that with the taxi unions. There is also the private service available which is $10 usd more per trip but with better vehicles. We are very sorry. More

We stayed at Cabo Surf Hotel last March, which is the end of the whale watching season and Spring Break. We chose the hotel because we didn't want to be in a crazy club like pool scene OR have tons of young children around. Cabo Surf was the PERFECT choice. The hotel is small, maybe 40 rooms max, beautifully landscaped,... More

This little hidden hotel is spectacular in so many ways. We didn't have the good fortune of staying our entire trip here, but the next time we definitely will.
