“Wonderful views! Awesome staff!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Great place to relax, take in the views and get some much needed R&R. Staff is very accommodating, above and beyond. Domingo was very helpful in ensuring our vacation was saved. Originally booked with another hotel (Quinta Del Sol), through Travelocity and was very dissappointed with the false advertising. Booked last minute at Sirena del Mar and Domingo stayed on the phone with us for three hours and Expedia to ensure our stay was confirmed. Really had a great time!!!

Room Tip: Wonderful ocean view rooms!!!

You will not be disappointed by Sirena del Mar! We traveled there for a week stay with 5 other couples the end of March. We are all ages 40-45 and loved it here! This hotel was a great find! The rooms are spacious and clean and have everything you would need. We stocked up on food for the kitchen (grocery store, Walmart/Sams or Costco are a short ride down the road) and had breakfast and lunch in our rooms daily. You can mix your own drinks and bring poolside without any hassle, which was nice for our group! We were NEVER bothered by the timeshare people--you can go to them if you want, but they will not stop you when you are there, which was very nice considering how many places in Mexico are NOT like that. The staff, especially Manny and Carlos, were great!! They've got some activities planned every day and different dinner nights during the week--we did the poolside BBQ Sunday which was great! Just as an FYI, we did the pool bartending class one afternoon, but didn't know until the end, it's not free--I believe it was about $18 per person, but you do get 3 drinks and 3 shots and it was a good time! Also, snorkeling down on the beach is available daily. We only ate dinner there once, which was pretty good. There is only the 1 restaurant, so if you want lots of dining options, you need to go to town, but it's a short cab ride there. Had a great massage one afternoon also. This hotel is very relaxing--not loud, not jammed with people, just a great, fairly quiet, small hotel. There's nothing much to do there at night, so if you're looking for nightlife, this isn't the place for you. The views from the hotel are amazing!! We did see whales most days right from the pool or the balcony of our room. Just as a side note, we had a group of 10 people and did not use the hotel shuttle to/from the airport, but booked through Impala ground services, which is insideloscabos.com. They were much cheaper and we had absolutely no issues with them--huge, new van, timely and they stopped at Costco for us on the way to the hotel for an extra $35, which was so convenient. (You prebook online and prepay via paypal for the round trip service)My husband and I loved Sirena--especially the smaller size. You will not be disappointed with this hotel--the views, the rooms, the staff--it was all great!!

Room Tip: Amazing views from the 4th floor

We're Welk owners, and decided that going to Cabo yearly is a great way to get away from Oregon rain. Every year we learn things to make next years' trip easier. This years' lessons: maybe taking a cab to/from the airport is just as easy as pre-arranging private cars; we still think using cabs & public transport is less stressful than renting a car; going to try to add an additional week to extend the Cabo feel next year.
It seems that the disappointments in others reviews often are related to Sirena del Mar being a timeshare property, not a hotel. True, you must pay if you want daily maid service; true, the restaurant is not a destination culinary experience; and you may get a pitch to go to the timeshare talk. But, from my experiences at other timeshare facilities, this one is very low-key. The positives are that every room has a fantastic view, beautifully appointed with a kitchen, dining room and living room. Fees and charges are minimal because it's not how this facility makes their money (it's from people buying into it).
I was very pleased this year with the massage I had. The therapist was excellent! Thanks to all the staff that made our week at Sirena del Mar fantastic, especially Francisco, Roman, Gina and Manny.
Counting the days till we return!

I have nothing but great things to say about this resort. The staff was friendly, the rooms are nice, the property was extremely clean & well kept and the best part are the views - from every inch of the resort in addition to our room!! I have read different reviews about the food but we liked every meal we had. (and my husband calls me a food snob) The breakfasts were especaily yummy & taco Tuesday was awsome! We will definetly be back. I cant think of anywhere else I would rather go on vacation now. I think the bar & resteraunt prices were reasonable. After a week of "can you put it on our room?" at the bar and resteraunt, we were pleasantly surprised with our bill. (AFTER we remembered it was in pesos & not dollars!! LOL! few!) We were expecting to owe more! ( : I especially loved going down to the beach which was always nearly empty, beautiful & relaxing! The resteraunts up the hill were good & we enjoyed the walk - it really wasnt as bad as some have described it - we are in our mid 40's. The "adventure" walking back in the dark was especially fun. Cant wait for next year...we'll be back!!

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is travelling to Cabo with the intent of relaxing. In other words, for siesta, not fiesta! The property was very well kept, and the rooms are a dream. Perfectly suited, with a view that will distract you from just about anything. I lucked out with a corner room, in the new building, with a veiw of the pool grounds to the left, and the Arch to the right. There is a small shop with water, beer, wines, snacks and a few other items located next to check in. If I had known this I may have forgone the 10$ taxi to Walmart.

A taxi into Cabo was about 160 peso's if that's your thing. I did venture in one night for dinner at The Office but otherwise was completely content at the resort.

I travelled alone and always felt safe and secure. The Mexican people, in partifular the staff at the Sirena del Mar, are so accommodating that their helpful attitudes put me in the best mood every day. The hotel concierge can arrange your transport to and from the hotel from the airport. I would recommend this. And do follow instruction to avoid all people pretending to know anything about you until you exit the airport and see drivers waiting for you.

With the exception of one day lounging by the pool with a group of adults playing their own music and being a little obnoxious the pool/bar and view complete the most comfortable situation. I think they will improve their dining options in the future, and with this the resort will be incomparable with others for the value. All in all, a perfect hotel experience, I will be back.

We ended up booking this room last minute because two of our other favorite resorts were sold out and when hotels.com had a deal last minute, we jumped on it because it made it to the 2013 Traveler's Choice list and figured it can't be a bad place!

First off, let me say that all the rooms are oceanfront view rooms, you can't get a bad view. However, any room that is a Deluxe 1-bedroom villa and not a PREMIUM (two different rooms) will be the smaller room of 490 sq ft. with a kitchenette (two electric stove top, no oven), microwave, sink, dishwasher, dishes, pots, pans, utensils, etc.), a washer/dryer with detergent for your convenience, eating area, couch, decent bathroom and a balcony. Our room was pretty decent for what we paid for, but after we saw the Premium 1-bedroom, we regretted not going with that (but we didn't have the option anyway, since they only had one room left and that was our room).

Checking in was a little long, resort fee a day is $7, which is pretty cheap. Room cleaning service is only if you requested, otherwise it's once a week. One restaurant with mediocre food, we ate here three times, once for lunch, once for dinner and once for breakfast, not too many options. Lunch and dinner menus are the same, different theme dinner events every night (extra, usually $35 a person).

If you sit through a timeshare presentation, you can usually get what you want for free excursions, we got to do the dolphin encounter with pick up and drop off for free for doing a breakfast timeshare presentation.

This place is rather quiet, rooms were apparently all sold out yet, we hardly saw all 36 rooms out in public at once. Pools were always available with ample space. There was a wedding that took place one night and even then, it wasn't that loud.

It was a nice place for us to get away for my babymoon and since we had a toddler with us, nothing too rowdy. We got a cab to go to a nearby market to buy and cook our own food on most days, made more sense and more cost effective.

In terms of room, staff, and overall facilities, this place is excellent. I would agree with most other descriptions of the facility. The only thing I didn't like is that there are no dining options other than the hotel restaurant. (The food is very good, but I wouldn't have gone had other options been available, because the prices are very high). The other thing to keep in mind before choosing this hotel is that it is a little far from the heart of downtown Cabo. If you walk up the hill to the street, you can get on a bus that will get you downtown in about 10 minutes. Overall, great facility with incredible ocean view, great staff, and rooms with great amenities including full kitchen, washer and dryer. I would come back
