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

Gorgeous hotel that overlooks the ocean and a great surf spot "old mans". Great poolside ambiance with surround sound music, infinity pool, hot tub and lounge chairs that all overlook the beach. Found all staff to be friendly and attentive. Exceptional experience (and while on the higher end of my budget),felt it was well worth the splurge!

We had a 6 night stay over spring vacation this March/April . We are two parents and two teenaged daughters. I cannot say enough positive things about this vacation destination. I am sure that we were craving sunshine and warm weather after a brutal Northeastern winter, we certainly got that and so much more. The hotel is small only about... More

I cannot rave about Cabo Surf Hotel enough! I have stayed here 3 times and cannot wait to return. Beautiful and quiet for couples yet also perfect for families. Staff are friendly and efficient, rooms are dreamy, sound of the ocean at night is heavenly, restaurant serves the BEST margaritas in Mexico and the beach, the waves and the views... More
