“Awesome Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Banyan Tree Cabo is unforgettable. My wife and I stayed 6 nights in Room 606 (pool villa by the rocks). I called ahead to request a villa with sunlight and privacy. Then GM Ricardo (there has since been a change) provided us with the perfect room. We have stayed at both Cabo and Mayakoba. While Mayakoba had better service (everyone remembers you by name) and breakfast (great variety), Cabo provides cleaner and luxurious experience. The view at Cabo is unparalleled. I have to give special recognition to Diego at Saffron. He was very attentive and engaging. The only drawbacks were: 1) we did not really enjoy the nearby beach club (Diamonte) 2) activity options are very expensive (scuba diving, boating, etc.) and 3) food is very expensive. Overall, I would not hesitate to return.

Room Tip: Rooms 606, 607 and 405 have great views. Make sure you get a villa with privacy. Passersby can see i...

overall service and attention to customer's needs are great. The food could use a little more flavour but the ingredients used are fresh and of good quality. The hotel personal is always kind and willing to help in any way to make the stay comfortable.
I would definitely return.

I got a nice villa for 375usd per night. Excellent service and a friendly staff that is always there to help. However, I ate the breakfast buffet and it was 95 usd for two people. The food was good nowhere near the quality I expected for the price. The hotel taxies are vey nice but cost about double the cost of a local cab. The laundry service was about 4usd per item (wash and dry). It was cheaper to just buy more underwear. Aside from that I was quite pleased. I've only stayed at one other place similar to the banyan tree (villa zollitude in Phuket Thailand). It was a cut above the banyan tree in every way but that not a hit on this place. I still enjoyed experience.

Just as advertised, the entire Banyan Tree Cabo Marques is not just a get-away, but an experience. The resort is located in a semi-remote area between the new and the old Acapulco. This makes it accesible by car via Mexico City, which is a great plus. But the most important thing about the place is the feeling of isolation. You need not fly half the world to feel "away". This Banyan Tree takes care of that feeling for you.

When you enter its premises, you already feel somewhere away from people. Except for the natural sounds and soothing music, it's completely noiseless and relaxing. We had a Pool Villa with a view to the pacific that was nothing short of spectacular. The room is first class, well decorated and spacious. The pool was just the right hot, and the deck with the hammock is perfect for having a drink or reading a book.

I'd recommend bringing a few snacks and beverages with you to enjoy at your room as the food can be a bit pricey. However, don't miss out on at least one of the restaurants. We had room-service dining one night, and had dinner at Saffron the second one, which was excellent.

The only area of improvement is in-room music. The room has a Speaker with an iPhone dock which cannot fit any of the newer version Apple devices (maybe they have adapters, we didn't ask). My recommendation is to install a multi-room sound set (bathroom, bedroom, pool deck) to which one could connect through headphone jack or bluetooth. We had this in one of the resorts at our honeymoon and it was the perfect touch. That is in no way a disadvantage to the experience.

This Banyan Tree is a perfect spot for honeymooners, wedding anniversary or "spoiled" get-away. The Banyan Tree Cabo Marques is a place to try at least once, especially if you live in Mexico. We will surely be back.

This is my first stay in a Banyan Tree so, I guess they all have excellent service, and prices are the same range. The villas are beautiful, each one of them has a spacious room and bathroom with amazing views and private terraces with pool. The SPA is very nice, but the amount of different massages you can get can be confusing at the end I chose the Sukothai and it was an amazing 90 minute massage but a little painful, I’m more inclined to a very soft pleasant massage. It has three amazing restaurants where the food is excellent quality and very nice. I stayed for two nights and it was enough because besides the Spa, and the very nice food and the very nice Villas, you have no access to a beach and it can get boring…But then again for three very romantic days is perfect. When you are at your private pool you can enjoy of the exotic birds and the very funny badgers that come to see if there is any food, take care of your belongings because they take everything the find.

Room Tip: Ask for water facing rooms

Banyan Tree is the definition of bliss. The people at Banyan are the nicest folks in the world and will make sure you feel special. From the villa to villa buggie rides, ocean views, the spa, & Saffron--you cannot have a bad time.

See Rubi for a lovely massage!
See Diego at Saffron for a wonderful dinner experience!
See the entire Banyan Tree staff for anything you need!

I can't wait to visit again!
Gracias siempre!

Room Tip: Ask about Pacific views or Cabo Marques views--both are lovely.
