I was on trip in Cabo when I heard about this lovely little resort, and decided to check it out (I am very, very happy that I did). After spending the day at Cerritos Beach, I chose to add a couple more nights to my trip, just so I could be on the beach awhile longer (this also allowed me... More

It is so hard to sum up Cerritos Beach in this amount of space. The beach and sites are incredible, Todos Santos is the best, and the staff of Cerritos Surf Colony are truly great. The front desk was able to help us out with anything we needed, including showing us where we could get surf lessons and where the... More

I have to say that this is a REMOTE destination vacation spot! If you want the craziness of nightclubs and party atmosphere then go to CABO!! If you want a nice relaxing stay on a private beach then go to CERRITOS SURF COLONY! They have some amazing pools to swim in and 2 hot tubs that will warm up throughout... More

i just returned from 8 nights at the surf colony. After reading so many bad reviews and an equal number of good reviews, I didn't know what to expect but to say that I was pleasantly surprised is an understatement . We were in villa 16 , a two bedroom, three bathroom unit with our 30 yr. old daughter and... More

Highly recommend the beachfront cabinas - what a wonderful experience to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean every night. The accommodations themselves are adequate -not high end luxury but clean and sufficient. I enjoyed the colony's pool and beach bar, which overlooked the ocean in one direction, and the Baja desert in the other. I had debated about... More

I'm always looking for a break from the usual hectic paces of modern life. When friends got a deal for Cerritos Beach, I jumped at the opportunity--especially after checking out the area online. I was a bit nervous after reading some of the reviews here, but once we arrived, the views took all those nerves away. The villas aren't perfect,... More

If you are tempted to buy one of the 'MANY' internet deals for this disaster... Don't buy into the con! Firstly it's no deal, the accommodation is worth about half of what you are going to pay. Second the owners of this unfinished and second rate hole finance their operation by getting your hard earned dollars in advance, then use... More

After reading the wide range of reviews over the past few months, I was really uncertain what to expect. Let me start by saying this isn't a 5 star resort. If that's what you're looking for head to Cabos San Lucas and pay a lot more money. If you are looking for a great ocean view, relaxing pool area, and... More

We had stayed at the Hacienda Cerritos 4 years ago and loved the ambiance enough to book 12 nights at the Cerritos Surf Colony this spring. The staff were friendly and helpful with what they had to work with. The units looked nice from the outside, but had really gone downhill once we got a closer look. Broken/missing screens, very...
