Hello, Your experience here will vary, depending upon: 1) What room you get, 2) The season you are here, and 3) the price you paid for what is promised (i.e. Groupon customers are discriminated against).

I'm not going to bother posting pictures as they would just be the same thing everyone else has on here. I'm also going to break tradition from my other reviews and list just pros and cons as it's the easiest way to describe.

We have taken advantage of Groupon twice on week long stays here. Both times we planned on having our stay coincide with Peter Buck's January Rock Festival. From have a thatched cottage right on the beach, to happy hour at the Hacienda, to spectacular sunrises and sunsets, to lounging at the beautiful pool bar, to Baja Beans wonderful courtyard experience...

A bit out of the way but easy to find, the Surf Colony gives you easy access to the surf. We stayed in a two bedroom unit, #16. Be advised that the two bedroom units will only sleep 4 people. There were five of us and one person had to sleep on an uncomfortable couch. I did ask at the... More

My husband and I visited in late-May. The weather was beautiful (the rest of the region is 90-100 degrees all day and sticky and humid, while it is in the 80s here during the day and 70s at night). The surfing was great. (Granted, that’s coming from two people who surfed for the first time here, but we had a... More

Is this a 4 star resort? No, but that doesn't make it bad. We just got back from a three night stay and totally enjoyed ourselves. Some of the complaints that people had are legitimate, but won't negatively impact your trip in the least! Yes, the sheets and towels could be of higher quality and newer, but we had plenty... More

My husband and I stayed a week here, and found it the perfect romantic and relaxing getaway. The place is well marked and very easy to find as you drive up Highway 19 from Cabo (there’s a big sign on the west side of the road, near Km. 65). The road is dirt, with the characteristic “ripples” and a few... More

This place was so much more than I could of imagined! It's the ultimate relaxing beach experience! We were there for 5 days. The thatched roof huts with amazing beach views were amazing. Service was super, food was above expected. Visiting Todos Santos is a must. Diego and Greg at the bar are exceptional. We will be going back and... More

We stayed here during October 2012 and experenced a nice Hurricane. During our time here the pool was continuously cloudy and contained debris. We attempted to eat the restaurant several times but they routinely were out of certain food on the menu. The best aspect of this place is the view of the ocean. We stayed in a 2 bedroom... More

Just got back yesterday from 6 nights with the family in three units. We had two one bedroom units and one two bedroom unit.
