My wife and I came Cabo for the first time for a friends wedding. We're not surfers but the wedding party was. We really enjoyed our stay and recommend the hotel. The view of the Sea of Cortez with its mighty waves was amazing. We were amazed to watch the surfers. Listening to the crashing waves all night created one... More

We went to visit this beach for the day as I was keen to have a surf. We didn't shirk away from paying our way, renting sunbeds, buying drinks and hiring a board for the day. However, as we were not guests the staff would not give us the time of day and proved incredibly dismissive. In fact, they made... More

Overall, Cabo Surf Hotel is a beautiful property. The grounds and pools are very nice. We splurged for a King Shore Room, and the view was amazing. What was lacking, however, was consistent service. When paying top dollar for a hotel room (the King Shore room is definitely not what I would call a "bargain"), I expect everything to be... More

We are very sorry about your experience. It may be comforting to know that we are launching a beach towel management system with cards. It will save a lot of precious water & energy and guarantee a handy beach towel for every guest at any moment. Also, our surf shop staff is more convinced of the importance to maintain the... More

We love this hotel. Epic surf break, delicious restaurant, close enough to town, gorgeous landscaping, beautiful horizon pool, attentive staff and such sweet attention to details even when they clean your room! They organized all our daughters little toys in a cute pile each time! We rented a car but could've easily relied on the cab service to take us... More

After living in Cabo for 15 years, I now return regularly and stay in my own condo or in a private villa with friends. Because I love the location and laid-back vibe of this property, I decided to spend the first week of a two week vacation here this month and it was HEAVENLY. I booked the King Shore Villa... More

Had a fantastic experience for a wedding. Martha and the staff were tremendous. A great boutique hotel. Most of the rooms have ocean views. Food was 1st class. Would highly recommend this hotel for your destination wedding.

This place is awesome. As someone who prefers a laid-back beach vibe to a high end property I was still blown away by this property, its staff, and its service. Excellent food, great staff, a property so fantastic that one need not leave for your entire vacation, and WAVES right out from that were just short of world-class when we... More

This is a beautiful, boutique resort close to San Jose del Cabo. The food is excellent and our room was lovely. We were on the second floor with a balcony facing the water. There aren't a lot of beaches where you can swim in Los Cabos, but the beach at the Cabo Surf Hotel, book-ended with large rock outcroppings, is... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cabo Surf Hotel is a boutique beach resort located on one of the most privileged beaches in Los Cabos: Acapulquito, also known as "Old Man's". The hotel was voted the 7th best kept secret, out of 21, from Elle Magazine, and was listed in Lucky Magazine as one of the editor’s “no-apologies splurges”. The soothing sounds of rolling waves are heard all around the resort for our guests to enjoy.The quaint 36 rooms, seafood restaurant (the 7 Seas), and day spa (Sea spa & salon), face an ocean cove and sandy beach with rock formations and light jade green waters. ... more   less
