My wife and another couple just returned from hacienda del mar ,we had a super time ,the pools are great,the beach was good even though your not suppose to swim we still snorkeld right off the beach we saw angel fish,puff fish,blue,black and orange colored fish.When we checked in both couples had studios which they upgraded us too a presidential three bedroom suite,my wife broke her foot two days prior to us arriving the staff gave her golf cart rides to where ever she had to go plus gave a wheel chair to us for the week. We ate at pitayas one nigth very elegant $$,food was extremely good,we ate most nights where the locals told us,we tried cabo wabo touristy place ,we hit squid roe very cool,las desus was excellent,we ate at another local place which was two blocks up westerly which was cool had ladies making fresh taco shells ,history showings on wall we got there early recommend reservations,we also went to todos santos and stop at cerrito beach and ate at the cerrito restaurant had wood fired pizza was awesome we brought some back to room for another whole meal.We did the ocean rider whale tour which the crew was very friendly and knowledgable,we had a unbelievable show three humpbacks were jumping out of water which we were about 30 yards away,we saw dolphins and seals,we also went on the sunrider sunset cruise which bwas a blast,the crew makes it a lot of fun the had just about everyone dancing to the hits.We rented a car i prebought insurance the counter person was trying to sell me more coverage,they will bill your credit card if by chance you get in an accident but you can reclaim from insurance you bought.Things to see hotel California,the sunset on a cruise ,whale watching early in the morning,the surfing at cerrito beach which we did its harder than it looks on tv.Id rate this a 8 on scale 1 to 10 as a destination to visit.mi bueno

We just returned from a 2 week stay at Hacienda Del Mar Vacation Club. We aren't novice travelers and we have stayed at Ritz Carlton's, four Seasons, and other top notch properties. Yes, it is an older property, but it is maintained better than any place I have been. Very clean! The newer buildings were just opened in November and they are pristine! They even come with washer and dryers! What the older units lack in modern upgrades, they make up for in awesome location right in the middle of amazing lushness. The beach is gorgeous, the amenities are perfect, some of the most comfortable pool chairs you will ever find! They don't have those cheap slat pool chairs that are uncomfortable and hard, they have big iron chairs with think cushions! The staff is beyond helpful! Rolando at the front desk is awesome, really the entire front desk staff goes above and beyond. We love it there and look forward to every visit! IF I had to find a negative, I think the resort food is expensive, but most everything is very delicious! We always rent a car and drive into to town for dinner, and have lunch and breakfast in the room. So that solves the food cost issue. I honestly can't understand how anyone could give this property a bad review. It's relaxing and very hospitable!

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are good, even the garden views are gorgeous. I probably wouldn't want buildin...

My wife and I have been coming to Cabo for many years and we have stayed at HDM many of those years. This is the first time I've written a review. Our experiences have been mixed to say the least. On this trip we were originally put into building one. Not bad as it's considered "ocean front" but it didn't have an elevator and I need one since I recently had a total knee replacement and walking up and down stairs is difficult at this time. We were moved without difficulty. I do agree with other reviewers that the prices in the resorts restaurants are very high. The prices could give one "sticker shock". We never complain about the staff because we know that they all try their best. Sometimes there are difficulties with the language barrier. Sadly I never mastered the Spanish language. We'll stay here again........................

Do not be fooled by the misleading room description. Ocean view means that you might catch a glimpse of the ocean from your balcony, standing sideways if you are lucky. As opposed to ocean front which provides full view of beach and ocean. The property is extremely well maintained with lots of pools and hot tub throughout. Try out the breakfast on 3rd floor of building behind the gourmet restaurant. Service is excellent, good breakfast selection and value. Incredible view of the sea of Cortez. Enjoy

Room Tip: Water Front if you care about the view

This isn't the most stunning resort in Cabo but it is still very classy and the staff really make your stay exceptional. We stayed at another resort after staying at Hacienda del Mar for a week and really missed the personal and quality staff at Hacienda. We didn't notice the difference in the past but this year it was really apparent. As the resorts get busier the employees at other resorts have become less personal and some are really developing poor attitude. The management staff at Hacienda del Mar must be doing a good job of keeping their employees focused on great customer service because it really shows. Everyone from the bell staff to housekeeping are excellent. You don't have to ask for help and when you leave your room housekeeping cleans the room while your away. At the other resort, housekeeping asked when we'd be out of the room but they never came to clean the room when we were away. They showed up when we returned and always forgot to do something. This never happened at Hacienda del Mar. There are so many great resorts in Cabo but Hacienda del Mar has a speical place in our heart.

Room Tip: Anywhere except the conference center

We just love this place! The staff is just wonderful! We love the accomodations as well. The rooms are spacious and quiet. We always have so much fun in Mexico. Between the sandy beaches and gorgeous blue water, we have not much more to ask for! Except the great food, cold drinks (fun beach happy hours) and sun fun! I could spend ALL WINTER here!!!!

Room Tip: Never have had a bad room in the Hacienda Del Mar and we have been coming here for 9 years at least!

Our trip took place over last Memorial weekend and week in a RCI exchange. We missed our flight because of the long Memorial Day Weekend Lines. We got out two flights later and it put us into Cabo at 5:00 and to the Timeshare Lobby at 5:45... Then the Timeshare hostess nabbed us and after talking to her for 15 minutes I sorta got upset because we wanted to enjoy our first evening there. She got the point and relented. We then were given our keys and shown to our two bedroom room. I didn't find out it was a two bedroom until we were left alone in our room. I had booked a three bedroom because some friends that punked out were supposed to come with us. Long story short is that we wound up with a great three bedroom close to the beach and by the time we got to the room it was time to hit the Bar/ Restaurant if we wanted to have any time to relax have a few drinks and enjoy the evening. ( If you haven't figured out yet, evening is my favorite part of a vacation day). So we went to Pitahayas and had a great night of drinks and then dinner as we were too tired after our fiasco of a travel day.
That was the first of three times at Pitaahayas because it had the best menu and ambiance of any of the other restaurants. Normally we go out to a different place every night and maybe grill at the timeshare once or twice to save some money but in Mexico they usually do not trust anyone to grill. Anyway even though we had a full kitchen we only used it for breakfast and one dinner.
We did the timeshare session and they have a great program but we opted for 300.00 to spend on their property ( they were very polite when we said NO). So that is what we did with only one dinner in town. This plan led to one very relaxing vacaction. This place has several great restaurants, a wonderfully Spanish/ Mexican atmosphere and generally a great place to stay.
About the only negative was that Cabo can be a bit warm in late May but it was still nice enough to enjoy ourselves.
We had a few lunches downtown and espacially at the Marina you can get lunches real cheap because of the reduced numbers of tourists compared to winter for the restauranteers to compete for. Definately eat there you will like it.
We always rent a car to visit the other resorts in any place we stay and just to be on our own verses Taxi vacationing. Just tell the guards your there for a timeshare tour or lunch or drinks and dinner in the evening, and they let you right in. Definately check out Playa Grande, the Grand Solmar and the Pueblo Bonita Sunset. They are three great Resorts!

Room Tip: Try to stay out of the back rooms unless you have kids then that is a great area as there is a place...
