This was our 7th stay at the Melia Cabo Real and we still absolutely love this place! Already planning our next visit back. The staff are wonderful, so nice & we always have a pleasant experience with all of them. We love the smallest of the resort and that everything is relatively close to walk to, the pool, the restaurants, the front desk, lobby, bar/entertainment room. The free form pool provides lots of loungers with umbrellas. The grounds are always clean, tidy and beautiful landscaping is throughout. It's definately a quieter resort, it doesn't provide flashy entertainment shows at night, however for us, following dinner, the lobby bar/lounge area suits our needs to stop in and have a few drinks, play some pool, listen to the dj, etc. Other than that we always venture into Cabo San Lucas or San Jose if we need to let loose and party. The variety of food is endless and you can always find something to eat. This particular visit, we met some friends who were snorkelers and with a few helpful tips to bring some bread & water in a water bottle down to the beach, who knew we would be in snorkeling heaven with an array of colourful fish swimming around us to eat the bread from our bottles, amazing. The views are amazing whether sitting around the pool, eating at the outdoor buffet or down on the beach. A perfect spot to whale watch, listen for the bells they occassionally ring around the pool by the snack bar or in the outdoor buffet restaurants, if you hear the bells, it's because the staff are ringing them because the whales are visible swimming by. Room service is simple food, but fine if you don't end up going out one night or come back late from offsite, $10 room charge. The top reasons we return time after time hands down is the STAFF, size & layout and the fact that we are always satisfied with our meals/snacks. Shout outs to: Maria Elena & Eduardo (pool drink service), Lorenzo (bartendar), Daniel (pool service/towels & loungers), Anna (lounge server), Jorge (buffet/Terraza) and the wonderful doormen/bellman - Alberto, Portofino, Raul, & younger gentleman under their wing - all of you always make our stay so special, thank you :-)
