“Great location, good food, friendly staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

We stayed the first week of Jan. 2013. The weather did not cooperated well, but the everything else was great. The drinks were good, the food was good to very good and our room was very comfortable. It is a relatively long walk to the beach from the resort area and pool. You need to negotiate quite a few steps in the process so if you have any issues with frequent bathroom trips or arthritis, this might reduce your walks on the actual beach.. There is a nice swimming beach close by. (It was too cold while we were there to go in above our knees).
Their lattes with breakfast were very good. We found the property lovely.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Stayed at the Melia Cabo Real Oct 13 - 20, 2013. We were not aware the resort was in the Corridor between Los Cabos and San Jose. A taxi ride to go anywhere costs you $25 each way. Also frustrating when a resort that boasted 3 ala cartes really only has 2 open but never at the same time or one night none at all. We ate at the Terraza twice - excellent food and service - Hazael makes the best Mexican and Spanish coffees. We tried the oriental (Kujira) terrible, terrible - just terrible. The pool is very nice if you stay away from the swim up bar - can't stand the idea of swimming in someone's urine. The entertainment crew are virtually none existent - activities around the pool went on some days and some days not. No announcements or invitations ever made to make the guests aware of the activities and this also included the nighttime entertainment.
We flew in from Edmonton on Westjet - the flight was ok but sure hated having layovers and changing planes in Calgary. Also as being a Westjet vacationer we were entitled to certain promos at the resort - what a painful job to be able to get someone to acknowledge this and honor them. Sadly really only wound up with a bottle of house wine and a piece of paper giving me 3 coupons of $25 to be used against a massage of 80 minutes - only using one per massage! Our Westjet rep at the hotel "Victor" was not helpful - really only there to sell excursions. A good example of the lack of information he provided was that even though this was a 4.5* resort - don't drink the water from the tap - at least 5 people in our group were sick because of consuming it.
Cabo is really beautiful and will return but will be sure to stay at a resort in one of the cities.

This is the second time I visit the resort with my family. As with my first review, everything continues to be EXCEPTIONAL. this is truly a relaxing vacation. You check in, go swimming at the beautiful pool and warm ocean, have some cocktails at the swim-up bar and enjoy the live shows at night. The staff is extremely courteous. Mary our housekeeper was so friendly and efficient, the waiters are the best. Some of the most attentive ones are: Marco, Arnulfo, Joel, Salvador, Jesus and Xochil. Adriana at the front is great too! Eduardo makes the best cocktails at the pool bar. The weather is great in October. The grounds are kept meticulously and are beautiful. I LOVE this place. I have made a mental image to have when stressed out at work ever day and I will return every year!!! thank you!

Went in late October for a 5 day getaway. Superb service from the moment we arrived. Beautiful pool, rooms, and views. For an all-inclusive, the food was fantastic! Service was constant, attentive, and we never wanted for anything. Room service was prompt and delicious, and housekeeping was exceptional. Would definitely stay again without hesitation. An overall fantastic experience!

I normally do not write reviews. But this one may help others when evaluating the property.

My wife was initially really concerned with the property. And had a real negative attitude toward it after reading some other reviews. So hopefully this review may help others with similar concerns.

We booked our visit through the Melia website and stayed in room 3124 (Garden View).
First the room:
1. This was the best garden view room we ever had. If you sat on the north corner of the patio you had a obstructed (some palm trees and few buildings) ocean view. Straight on, view of the golf course and Las Ventanas. Very satisfied considering the class of the room.
2. Also very quiet on the west side. Three weddings during our stay. But never got to loud on this side.
3. Quite convenient to the pool, just 100ft away with no stairs.
4. Room was clean and neat, 40" LCD TV, Refrigerator stocked with water and soda.

Second the resort:
1. Staff was very friendly.
2. Pool was great, can easily walk or swim throughout the pool. We stayed in Oct so water was warm. Walk right into.
3. Ocean was nice, warm, does get deep real fast. Sand is on the course side (like small pebbles). If you have tender feet, wear aqua shoes.
4. Restaurants, enjoyed La Palapa (Buffet), nicest views amongst the restaurants.
5. Beautiful landscaped resort.

My sister & I decided to meet up in Cabo. She was celebrating her anniversary and we were on vacation. Age group from 33-43 and we had a fantastic time. Everything was very organized which made it a pleasant experience. Hotel was clean & hospitality was awesome. The food was good for an all-inclusive. They have indoor & an outdoor pool side ocean view location where you are served all 3 meals with endless fruits, snacks & water throughout the day. They had two additional dinner restaurants which one had to RSVP in advance, fairly simple with the concierge. A la carte Restaurant La Terraza food was good, Restaurant Kujira la carte Japanese cuisine food was normal. We were upgraded as a courtesy to an ocean view room and I mean a true ocean view. If you're familiar with the property our room was right above the spa. Daily pool activities kept us entertained. Every morning I participated in the Pilates class which was very refreshing done outdoors on the grass off the poolside. Live DJ music followed by more entertainment keep us connected. Note nothing extremely loud nor nothing forced to engage where one felt uncomfortable. The island has many excursions here are some we did. I.e. Zip Lining,natural rock climbing wall, suspended bridges, rappelling, deep sea fishing, underwater experience with the dolphins "Frida", on the beach horse back ridding. Cons: Hotel has Wi-Fi but it's not complementary you have to pay about a $12-$15 fee per day which I thought was unreasonable. The island is surrounded by sales people trying to invite you to visit a time share. They will promise you Round-trip taxicab fares along with excursions if you only come and sit and listen to an hour and a half of their presentation. Now don't get me wrong they will give you everything that they promised you. But, they will try their darn best to sell you something so you have to be firm and say no no no and just leave with what they promised you PERIOD! I had a great time & will return.

Room Tip: If you want a true Oceanview asked to be located in the building where the spa is located lower leve...

My husband and I chose this hotel for our wedding and honeymoon. I cannot say much more than an excellent choice. We had over 40 friends and family come from all over the world. Everyone was very pleased. The staff was wonderful, wedding planners excellent and very caring about making our wedding one to remember for all. The rooms were very clean, modern and well equipped. The food absolutely excellent especially for Mexico. The pool and swim up bar awesome. Many activities and a great swimable beach. I own and ooerate my own travel agency and have recommended and booked many clients here. Have not had a single complaint. Its important to remember that Mexico has high humidity, so a slight smell of mold is actually quite normal. Open windows and get fresh air in and it will go away.

One of the best all-inclusives I have ever been to. Fun, nightlife, activities and relaxation. The ocean side massages are so wonderful.

We are returning for our 1st anniversary next week for 10 days and some friends are accompanying us because they enjoyed it so much.
