I just came back from San Jose for 4 days of relaxation. I was very pleased with the resort and the staff. I highly recommend the Club Premium...it is worth it! I'd like to thank Miriam, Omar and all the staff, waiters, bartenders for such a wonderful experience. We will return very soon. Room was comfy...food was excellent as well.... More

The hotel was nice, close to the beach and the food for the most part was good. If your looking for a nice relaxing family vacation then this is the place, but if your younger and looking to party then you should stay in CABO SAN LUCAS. This hotel is far ($80) for a taxi to San Lucas which had... More

Overall it was a great hotel. Our moms along with our kids had a great time...really no need to go anywhere else. Plenty of things to do in the hotel. Only complain was the construction sight next door.

We decided to visit this resort after our wonderful experience with them in Riviera Maya. This location did not disappoint. The staff was so friendly and welcoming. The food was great. And mojitos made the trip complete. There were fun activities like sand volleyball, beach bonfires, and of course close enough for walks along the beach. Our room was as... More

My friends and I stayed at the Barcelo Grand Faro Los Cabos resort for 4 days this May and we were not disappointed! The buffet displays for breakfast, lunch and dinner were awesome, but the food at La Góndola Italian Restaurant was the best we had the whole trip. We spent the majority of our days lounging around the pool... More

This hotel left us the most frustrated of any place we've ever stayed at. Check in took an hour with only five people in line, and we received two double beds.
