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.

This place is the best. I was not expecting a lot, but I have to tell you, I will not go anywhere but here. The staff: EXCELLENT! The views: EXCELLENT! There is not a bad thing to say about this place and I am not even a surfer (but I accompanied one). We were there for 4 days and every... More

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.

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...

My husband surfs and I wanted to learn, so we booked 5 nights here in mid-May, 2015. The hotel was absolutely lovely, the staff were super friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This is a quiet, lovely place for a relaxing getaway. AND: I had two fantastic surfing lessons with Sergio, who is an excellent teacher! His instructions... More

ClubEd Surf Camp in CABO 2015. This was my best vacation ever. Everything was perfect. Surfing instruction; Ed Guzman managed to get this old guy, onto Overhead plus waves! He encouraged me to "Stand UP" quickly. Plant my feet on the center of the board! (that is now taped onto my board). All of the restaurant food was at a... More

We planned our destination wedding with Martha at Cabo Surf, and I don't have enough space to rave about her. Martha made our wedding beautiful and seamless, so that my husband and I could enjoy each moment with our family and friends throughout the 7 days we stayed here. I found this hotel through images I fell in love with... More
