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

My husband and I had our wedding at this hotel on May 31, 2012. I coordinated everything with Marta over e mail and it was perfect. Flowers, food, photographer, everything was amazing!

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

This small hotel has comfortable rooms - especially the oceanfront building, which has a terrace where you can watch family surf or check it out for yourself. The restuarant is very good and the staff will remember your name. The hotel is small and family friendly, not pretentious, but high quality. A world famous older surfer will give you lessons....

Thank you for your valuable feedback, the right surf brake favors the non-rocky side to surf. For swimming purposes, the left side facing the ocean about 50 yards walk there a sandy and mellow swimming spot that you should try. We hope to see you back again soon! More

Great rooms with a view of the surf break. Perfect set up of hot tubs with views of the waves. Restaurant average. The surf instructors were excellent at coaxing my daughter out onto the break. This is our 5th visit.

We recently got married at Cabo Surf and had 80 guests at the wedding. We booked almost the entire hotel.

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

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
