“Nice Resort with Lots of Walking and a Bit Noisy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We stayed at the Ridge in building E, Rm 3421. Our balcony overlooked the Marina, the Naval facility, the Grand Solmar construction entrance and the infamous barking dogs protecting the Land's End property. The two bedroom Presidential Suite was nicely appointed and the view of the Marina at night was nice. However, if you do not like walking and are a light sleeper, this is not the place for you. The clubs across the Marina boom electronic music until 5AM which is when the dogs start barking. We figured out that if we kept the AC on all night, we could overcome the partyfest with white noise. After that we were OK. We are runners and very fit, but the constant up and down to get to our unit from the lobby was even tiring for us. BIG TIP: The street door to the Marina from units D & E at the Ridge is open only from 12PM to 12AM. Keep your visists to downtown and the Marina and you can save a lot of hoofing. Outside of that, you walk all the way around. Adds 15 minutes. Also, if you are OK with a rock scramble and some beach hiking, you can get to Divorce Beach, Lovers Beach and El Arco from Solmar Beach. Also, if you rent a car, you can self park, you do not need to valet.

Room Tip: Stay away fro buildings D&E if you are a light sleeper. Get into one of the higher units near th...

What a incredibly beautiful place! Perfect location, a short walk down the hill and you are in downtown Cabo. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff was so helpful! Right from the beginning with Manny, who helped us with our bags and told us about the Mexican Fiesta. The Fiesta was very entertaining and a great way for my kids to see some Mexican traditions. We had amazing service from Joel from Acapulco at the pool bar! Loved getting to know him! We also loved talking with Julio, also from Acapulco, at the Playa pool bar. Julio remembered our favorite foods and was an awesome waiter! Everything about this resort was incredible. Can't wait to go back....

Room Tip: The higher floors have amazing city views!

We went for one week in November, 2 families - 4 adults, 3 kids. We stayed at the Ridge unit 3022, building C - 2 bedroom 3 full baths, 2 living rooms, dining room, kitchen, many decks. There was enough room for another family. The place was beautiful. The food was excellnt. We did 4 days on the all-inclusive plan. We have been to Cabo at least 10 times and this was our first time at this resort. Never once were asked to do a timeshare presentation - that never happens. We snorkeled, scuba, beach, pool, spa, pirate, ship, fish, nightlife we almost did everything. There is so much to do in Cabo that you need more than 7 days. Everything about the resort was great. Kids had a blast the loved kids club and the waterslide and pools. We even had some adult time by the adule only pool. You can not swim at their beach but a short cab ride or nice long walk to Medeno beach, where happy hour is all day starting at 9 am.
We like to stay right in downtown Cabo. This was a great location.

Room Tip: If you stay at the Ridge Building C room 3022 had views of the Marina and the pacific ocean. It was...

If you want a Cabo City view and see night lights and hear the Marina Clubs streaming music and mix in fireworks too, check out The Ridge. The rooms, food, infinity pools and service are off the chart superb. It is a perfect place for adults and if you want to bring the kids, they have a special swimming area for them while you relax! It's the best for everyone.

Room Tip: If you don't mind the music streaming from the clubs on the Marina, ask for a room overlooking t...

My husband and i just got back Saturday from a week at the Ridge. The hotel was 10 times better than expected, the service was outstanding, the food was excellent, the room was in great location with a view on the marina. No swimming at the beach on the Pacific side but that was fine with us, great for walks. I do not recommend this hotel for someone in a wheelchair or not able to walk a lot. there is LOTS of stairs. No free wifi service unless you picked a signal from the Marina. We had all inclusive which i recommend if you drink a lot and there is enough variety in restaurant and food to have something different everyday. The mexicain Night and the beach Party were great for entertainment. We did not get bothered by timeshare people at ALL. We would go back tomorrow if we could. Thanks to Raciel, Miguel, Monica and everyone that made our stay SUPER!

Room Tip: Go to playa Grande if you are in Wheel Chair. Not the Ridge.

The best location to be close to town and in walking distance to everything. The resort has it all and the Penthouses are over the top. The meal plan is only worth it if you stay on resort and like to over eat. We like to go venture and all of the food around town is over the top fantastic.

The resort is everything it boasts. We stayed in a penthouse which slept 8. Service is wonderful. Response to calls is immediate. The only downfall is the is no wifi in this section of the resort. The Internet that is available had to be purchased. As an owner I felt this should be included.
