Seems that is recently opened or renewed, however is sad that the service is not up to the level of the decoration, the views and the concept. The restaurants are very expensive, especially if take into account that service is bad, slow, the staff is rude, there are missing items in the menu, you can receive wrong orders or the... More

I had the most relaxing holiday of my life at El Ganzo last July. I loved the non-fussy nature of the hotel itself which is luxurious but not pretentious. Service there was excellent. The food ther was so good that there was little point in ever leaving the complex. For anyone who loves the ocean and the beach this is... More

I was staying in Cabo but had a night here and it was the highlight of my trip. The food, staff and above all the pool were hands down the best part about my trip to Cabo. I would go back just to stay here. It was a much more refined and elegant scene and just one that was memorable... More

The el ganzo beach club is an excellent place to spend an afternoon--the sheltered beach is a great place to swim, paddle board, or just enjoy the views of fishing boats, whales, seals, sea birds, among everything--the food is very good, and fresh--and the staff are ever ready to help or serve you--love it!-- our friends and family stayed at...

I stayed at El Ganzo for a couple nights in August. Everyone at the hotel is extremely helpful, the food is good, and they have their own "private" beach. Rooms on the smaller side, but they are very comfortable and you won't feel crowded. I had dinner at The Container, and I definitely recommend it. They have excellent ceviches! The... More

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The location is undoubtedly stunning, the pool incredible and the rooms very pleasant but the management are truly awful. We certainly weren't going to let them ruin our stay but they did put a dampener on our break. This hotel won't be for you if you're keen on the whole spring break scene.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in February 2014, and fell in love. Let me preface this properly by telling you we are totally hotel snobs! When we're on vacation, there is truly something to be said about staying in a modern, chic, trendy, family-owned type of place, and Hotel El Ganzo exceeded our expectations. They truly went above and... More

I am usually a middle of the road traveler and stay everywhere between campgrounds and 4-star locations offering off-season deals, so the El Ganzo ranks among the more luxurious places I have stayed. With that being said, I have no suggestions or complaints. The El Ganzo is amazing! The location is quiet and beautiful, the staff friendly and helpful, the... More
