“A little slice on heaven in Cabo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This was our first time to Cabo (almost a year ago) and I must say we loved it at the Hacienda del Mar! We traded our time share to stay at this resort so we didn't know what to expect....and wow it was an amazing resort for our family vacaction. We, by luck, ended up in the newest addition to the resort and had a beautiful 3 bedroom unit just steps away from the kiddie pool area (and with 4 kids with us it was so perfect)! We spent a lot of time at that new pool but went and tried all the pools at the resort and found they each had wonderful features....and while some were more crowded-we never had an issue finding chairs (and we had 8 people total in our group). And we spent lots of time at the beach and were always able to get chairs and a palapa or umbrella there! All the restaurants we ate at on site were good and we felt priced well. I think our only complaint would be that both times we ate at Tomatoes the service and the wait time for our meals seemed really slow.....and with two young children in our group that was a bit of a challenge. But other than that everything was really perfect at this lovely oasis of a resort. We really like that it was away from the city, but close enought that we could go do the dolphin swim one day and the art walk another night. The hacienda del mar is a gorgeous place to stay and the room was amazing. We felt super safe the whole time we were there-great security and service from all the staff. Everyone was so friendly, helpful and welcoming! Even the time share presentation we went to was so low key and fun (no high pressure tactics at all), they even were fine with the kids coming along! We loved it so much that we have traded to go here again and are counting down the days to our return in about a month!!!

The resort is great, not very close to Cabo or San Jose. You need transportation to either town, rental or taxi. The thing that amazed me we the terminals. Frontier is new and very easy to navigate. Everything was great, even saw a few whales.

HDM is a lovely resort away from all the hustle and bustle of Cabo San Lucas, but it is an easy shuttle to go to town if you want to. We had an older room that was a great location (building 1) and the only negative was that the decor was "dated". It was clean though and the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed all of the pools until they decided to renovate the main infinity pool in the middle of our stay, which was unpleasant because everyone had to pack into fewer pools and it just made them more crowded. The reviews about saving chairs are all correct and even though there are signs everywhere that say no saving, people do it anyway and there is no enforcement. So you have to get down there by 7am if you want a good chair for the day.
We really enjoyed the welcome party on Tuesday night and met some really nice people. The daily classes in the pool were lots of fun and we enjoyed all the restaurants.

Room Tip: Building 1 is close to everything but the rooms are dates compared to the ones you will tour when yo...

With all the negative publicity about Mexico in the past few years, maybe you've been hesitant to go. Don't Be! Sheraton's Hacienda del Mar proved to us that we had been away too long! What a glorious resort! From the moment we arrived we were in Paradise.
Architecturally stunning, taking advantage of the beautiful surroundings from every angle. Very comfortable rooms with THOSE beds! Award-winning restaurants, all with spectacular views. The gracious staff can arrange anything for you.
Adjacent to the world-famous Jack Nicklaus Ocean Course, 4 separate pools, full-service spa, luscious landscaping throughout, why are you still sitting there???
Situated just 6 miles from the lively Cabo San Lucas, there is something for every sport lover...or just sun-worshipper!
Nice for families, PERFECT for romantics!
(Also excellent facilities for weddings and meetings)

Room Tip: The resort has 270 rooms, 31 very spacious ocean-view suites, and at least 2 "presidential"...

This is a very nice resort, we had a 2 bedroom master suite and everything was very nice and clean. The resort has a shuttle to take you to Cabo and it is very convenient and only $5 a person. They have nice restaurants some pricey but you can go to costco and stock up if you like its a $15 taxi ride. The beach is very nice but pool areas filled up very fast in the morning. We would go back and enjoy this property again

We spent a week at this beautiful property. There are at least 5 restaurants, several pools (including one for children), gorgeous white sand beaches and a very amenable staff...the 2 bedroom/3 bath unit was well cared for and all have beautiful views...

Room Tip: Aside from the time share units there is also a hotel on site for shorter stays..

The Hacienda del Mar is a beautifully maintained resort. We enjoyed the beach access and the pool areas. The fire pit was located near our room which was nice on those chilly nights. Housekeeping came in each day with fresh towels, bed making and light cleaning.
One downside are the pricey restaurants. Best bet is ordering something you can split at Tomatoes. Wish there had been an on site bakery to satisfy your sweet tooth for dessert. Only had ice cream bars or an expensive dessert at one of the restaurants. On the whole we have no regrets with our stay at this resort.
