I've been going to Cabo for 10+ years and I'm a pretty picky guy about my stuff and this place just rocks.
People griping about it needing updating are just silly. It's not Vegas. Relax. It's a more rustic lifestyle and The Ridge is right up at the top of the Cabo food chain when you take into all of the various and relevant factors.
One of the big things for me is security. I want it...they have it! They are good about making sure you have fun and are safe. I don't want to have to worry about my girlfriend walking alone and if you have kids then quit reading this and book your flight. What are you waiting for?
I'm an owner at The Ridge and go every year and bring friends at times and they are always impressed, so you should go experience it. It can be kind of a hike to get down to the restaurants, but I abuse my body so much in Cabo that I actually never gripe about walking back and forth b/c it's good for me to finally exercise even a little...haha!
Spa, pools, events, good times, laughs....and the sun is always shining!
I'm not sure what rooms are the best or I would make recommendations. I've stayed in a 3rd floor corner room that I really liked. Also stayed in a two bedroom overlooking the marina and is was just gorgeous. I don't want to give the one room that I know I liked b/c I'm heading to The Ridge very very soon and I don't want anyone to grab it before I get there this time. haha!!!
I really hope I get a good room this time. So far I've liked them all that I've stayed in there. I'd really like to have a top floor one some day just to see what it's like. High roller status I guess for those bad boys.
Seriously, really top notch place and you can take your family and friends and be safe and it's a super easy walk to town and we usually cab it back with any groceries we might have grabbed. LOVE having a full kitchen I almost forgot to say. I like to be able to snack darnit!
Maybe I'll see you in paradise!
p.s. The Ridge has a nice little "shortcut" that pops you out right on the street by the marina. It's actually a HUGE shortcut if you are walking into town. Your welcome. :)
