Great location, on the marina in San Jose del Cabo, easy access to fishing boats. Friendly staff, clean, well appointed rooms, have stayed here a few times before, will definitely return, food service was a bit slow with our party of 8

Spent 3 nights in August, the Hotel is a mid-size boutique hotel, with obsessive attention to details and a very hip atmosphere. Rooms are nicely decorated, in a vintage and rustic style, but comfortable and with all amenities (including an ipad to browse all the hotel services). The hotel is situated in a marina not far from San Jose del... More

After a busy few months of work we were looking for a perfect idyllic hotel and found it at El Ganzo. The hotel is a stunning property, the roof top pool and bar being the absolute highlight. One could spend hours enjoying the unique view, and infinity pool. The private beach (that unusually for the area is calm enough to... More

Without writing too much, were there in the off season, still there tonight, thos will be our last night, so assuming nothing changes...we have had a great stay. The place isn't packed. It's not one of the larger hotels, which is what we had wanted. The staff all seem great. Had hoped we could bike to town, but can't, but... More

This is my first Trip Advisory review! But I just had to take the time to tell people about this Hotel. This hotel is absolutely gorgeous, inside and out. It has a 'boutique' feel, while supporting the arts, with their special El Ganzo recording sessions, and 'Artist in Residence' program, as well as Movie Nights on the rooftop. You can... More

Hotel El Ganzo has 9 out of 10 of my list for a great hotel. The only problem is that they are missing the No. 1: Food. Great concept, location, rooms and prices..really bad food. They can't afford to fail on this. They have done the difficult part, I can't understand how they have failed on having great food. Their... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Hotel El Ganzo in mid July. The hotel is fairly new and is beautifully maintained. It's definitely one of the hippest hotels in this area- with a recording studio below the main entrance, and lots of interesting art installations. The room that we had was small but comfortable with an incredibly comfortable bed! The... More

We have recently returned from a lovely week at the El Ganzo. This new'ish hotel has a lot going for it particularly it's wonderful location offering panoramic views. We were on the 3rd floor in a comfortable, well equipped if somewhat compact room and could enjoy the views from both our balcony and bed.....a nice touch. The rooftop, one floor... More

El Ganzo is a really cool hotel with a wonderful staff. Service was excellent, the beach is very nice and is one of the few swimmable beaches in the area, the rooms are comfortable, and the rooftop pool is a fun spot to cool off and have a drink. I would definitely stay at El Ganzo again!

Simply the best overall experience in Los Cabos. You get first class service with a unique environment designed to enhance your five senses surrounded by art in all its forms. I hope you enjoy your visit as much as I have enjoyed many visits. Fernando Soto-Hay
