Wonderful meals...the breakfast buffet is the best I've had.

Delicious! Can't believe how amazing the breakfast buffet is - TONS of healthy options - green juice, yogurts, cheeses, salads, whole grain breads, etc. Try it - totally worth the cost!

We had the buffet six days in a row. I know that sounds crazy but it was so delicious we could not pass it up. We had a package deal that allowed us the continental breakfast for free but then you could upgrade to the whole buffet for an additional seven dollars per person or something close to that. So...

We have stayed at the Hilton Cabo seven times and fall more in love with it each time. The breakfast (continental and cooked-to-order) at El Meson is fantastic! Dinner was very good as well. The service is the best! Jorge, Aaron and the rest of the staff are very friendly, caring and go above and beyond to make your experience... More

Great breakfast buffet, try the green juice!! For lunch try all the different tacos at the pool's restaurant. The fish tacos and the pork are the best!!

We were staying at the Hilton, so El Meson was an obvious destination for breakfast/brunch. They do it very well. There's a wide selection, including many Mexican treats. They do the obvious things -- an made to order omelet bar for example -- but also have a fruit salad station where a staff member carves a fruit salad to your... More

A little pricey, but the breakfast buffet is fantastic. We didn't have lunch there but did eat dinner a couple times there. The dinner menu could be expanded a little, but otherwise very good. And Victor, the manager, or one of them, was outstanding. Always remembered us and was very polite. Great restaurant.

It's a very good restaurant with cuisine that is above the average. It is Mexican gourmet cooking. The Huachinango(red snapper) and arrachera(flank steak) are especially good.

We stopped by for lunch after flying in to town. We both ordered the carne asada plate. Not something I usually order for lunch but glad I did. So delicious! Perfect service too. The view is beautiful. We have dined here over the years and continue to come back.

Jet lagged we decide to dine in-house at El Meson which specialises in Mexican cuisine. Sitting by candle light, a lovely old lady approaches our table with a trolley. She’s wearing what could only be described as a large cream hessian table cloth that she’s stolen to make into a dress and embroidered colourful pansy’s all over it to complete... More
