We just spent a weekend at the Bahia in Cabo. Overall it was a good experience but there are a few things to note to make the next trip better.
First the good:
This is a smaller hotel that is a bit quiter, but has quick access to the party spots if you're interested. It's a short walk to ME Cabo and Nikki Beach. It's a short walk to The Office and Edith's restaurants. And it's a short walk to Medano Beach. It's a very reasonable walk to the marina and nightlife (would not recomend trying to walk that distance in heels, but wedges are ok for the ladies). And the best thing about it is that it's about a third the price as ME Cabo but as close or closer to everything.
The food at the bar was very good (we had a margarita pizza that hit the spot for a light lunch). Drinks were good at the bar as well.
The pool is pretty chill and there is a swim-up bar that you can enjoy. There is also a hot tub at the bar as well. And there are hamocks placed around the property.
Ok, so now the not so good (sort of):
Some of the rooms are newly renovated and some are not. You want one of the new ones. When we arrived, our room was not one of the new ones. My wife was a little disappointed with it, and the lighting was really bad (to the point where she couldn't see into her suitcase very well looking for specific things). The bed was also very hard. There was a big counter with a stove top in the middle that just took up a lot of the floor space unnecessarily.
When we went down to our friends room and saw how open thier floor plan was with a nice polished concrete counter (tucked along the wall, out of the way with no stove top) polished stone flooring, and plenty of lighting; she went from a little disappointed to a lot disappointed. We wound up requesting an upgrade the next day and got a room with direct access to the pool that was one of the newely renovated rooms. The bed was also a lot more comfortable which was good as we wound up being sun burned and needing the softer mattress. It was an extra $60 a night and she said she was fine with staying in the other room, but after we moved to the new one she admitted she was glad we did.
Overall I would recommend this hotel to both families and groups of friends, however I would also be willing to try a different hotel on our next trip. Would depend on pricing is all.
