What more can be said about this area...it is expensive, the golf is incredible, the housing is out of this world, the service is superb.

“Amazing golf course!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Loved everything about this place. The course is quite challenging from the gold tees. Beautiful all around

“Great beach day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Staying in a villa close by we could walk or talk our golf cart down to this beach. It was vendor free, clean, some what quiet and swimmable. The waves at the break were a bit strong for my 4.5 year old but she was fine. She had great sand to build sandcastles and the shaded area's provided were a nice relief from the strong sun. Overall a great day at this beautiful beach. Drawback were the many boats that the fishermen operate but it was not too bad.

“Nice Place to Swim and Snorkel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Had a great day at the beach here. The water taxi's take you and pick you up, the waves are not so rough that you cannot swim here, and the snorkeling here is some of the best in the area.

“Great Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Easy & Free parking. Lovely little cove. No vendors bugged us. Water was delightfully warm and swimmable and calm. (No waves here.) On the way out of Cabo back toward airport maybe 25 minutes. Worth the drive. It is by the swanky Palmilla hotel but we sat far away from that so we don't know if there were any celebs there (all the employees at our resort were eager to tell about all the stars who stay there - John Travolta rented the whole place for a week for $5M - and all the expensive cars in the parking lot "mercedes benz, escalade, hummer" - so cute!). No food or drinks or chairs. But there are outhouses and palapas. We would definitely go there again!
