Cabo Surf Hotel has earned a spot in my family's annual getaway rotation! With three breaks within paddling distance of the hotel's beach, there's truly something for everyone here. Old Man's, directly in front of the hotel, is great for kids or beginners, while the Rock or Zippers offer a bit more challenge. Doyle's surf school, operated from the hotel,... More

We booked the Ocean Master and Adjoining room for our wedding here in June. Perfect location and view and the resort is fantastic. The staff were very responsive and fun. We traveled with some very discriminating family members and they all said they couldn't wait to come back! Tammy with Cabo Wedding Services helped plan the big event and it... More

If relaxing and surfing are what you're looking for this is the place to stay. The water is beautiful and the views are spectacular. The surf school is top notch and very effective in teaching students the basics and giving enough time for you to practice what you learn. Every person in my class was able to stand and ride...

We had a shore king room which was pretty big and had a great view of the ocean and surf break. The room was comfortable and we loved hanging out on the terrace and watching the waves and surfers. The staff are very nice and helpful and the hotel is very clean and in good shape. As a surfer it... More

Lived here now for 8 years...first time at this property. GREAT! Right on the beach. Only a few steps from the best surfing in San Jose. Old Mexico in a modern setting. If you like to surf, SUP or just watch a beautiful sunrise...this it it. Full Moon party every month with Jazz and the best moon rise anywhere.

Beach is nice and close to the good surf breaks. Pools are nice. Our room was great. Just wish the room was not on ground level b/c everyone who walks can see in. Also, to get to and from the beach, we had to walk thru the restaurant. That was kinda awkward.

Thank you for sharing your comment. We will look into the ground level rooms privacy concern on the way to the North pool. We had installed another set of curtains in the balcony to help with that. In order to facilitate the privacy of our guests from public beachcombers we have kept a central entrance from the beach to the... More

The Cabo Surf Hotel has been our go-to Mexico spot for many years. There is everything to love about this boutique hotel. The staff, the location (a quick private transportation ride from the airport), the food, the rooms, the beach, the close proximity to Cabo proper if you choose to venture in. We never leave the hotel. In times past... More

Most of the lights in my room doesn't work, the furniture is the ugliest ever, the sofa has a tear at the bottom, there is a crack between my bay windows and the frame that lets in all the Mosquitos and the staff didn't understand why I would ask for citronella cancels, the front desk person just plainly tells me...
