We just got back from a week at this resort, and after reading all the reviews I couldn't agree more, its one spectacular resort. I will say the lighting was an issue, however, the lights are dimmed and there are slide switches on the sides of each light, allowing you to make it brighter.
Staff was absolutely amazing, should you need anything they are right there, you won't be sorry. We enjoyed happy hour at the swim up bar, and had some good laughs as the salsa was quite hot for me, but nice to know it’s given to you complimentary. The pools are absolutely gorgeous, the lounge chairs, lounge beds and the cabana’s are amazing, and the place is immaculate.
The front desk girls were always willing to help as well as concierge, getting a taxi is no problem and the resort is about 25 minutes away from the airport. The Mega Market and Wal-Mart are nearby; it’s a $5.00 USD ride or if you’d like you can walk to it, it’s about a mile walk. You are charged $15.00 USD a day for a resort fee, but my housekeeping was worth every dime of that. They ran the dishwasher, put the dishes away, provided coffee/tea, sweeteners daily in my room with coffee-mate, unlimited towels are yours just for asking, and it’s always their pleasure to assist you, naturally we gave her something on the side. The water is purified; we didn’t have a problem, although we did buy a huge bottle of water and water bottles to take with us to the pool.
Upon check in they do require that you see concierge, from what I read I was automatically defensive only to find out that was not necessary at all. They gave us all the information about the resort, tours, restaurants, the area, and politely asked if we would like to take a tour, we declined and was told that if we change our mind to please let them know, we never heard another word about it and enjoyed our trip.
To go to the Cabo San Lucas area near the Marina is about a $35.00 USD ride each way, this was the only disappointment to me as I really liked that area. Most of the other resorts in the area are all inclusive, Cabo Azul is not.
One warning, we went to a restaurant located across the street from Habanero’s, I cannot remember the name, and ended up eating with flies all over the place, covering our food with napkins, etc., the other restaurant that had flies was La Pesca which was a few doors away from this place, didn’t realize my location or I wouldn’t have gone there either. They are inundated with flies as there is a horse farm right next door, this is not something that was appreciated, so try and eat inside if you’re in the downtown area, or ask if they have this problem, we had one restaurant owner tell us, he will put the fan on and that will deter the flies, no thank you, once was enough for me.
Two fabulous restaurants were Don Sanchez and Tropicana, both inside with air conditioning, or outside if that is your choice, they were absolutely fantastic. At Don Sanchez we had the skirt steak, it was the most amazing steak I’ve ever had, at Tropicana I had the shrimp with chile, it was fabulous, others had the stuffed clams, my husband had a Mexican dish that included chicken and steak, the serving was so big he didn’t even eat a third of it, just fabulous restaurants and food. We also had a great Italian dinner in a little place next to Habaneros restaurant. Due to the lack of people it’s a little concerning at first that these places are empty, but honestly, ignore that and enjoy the attention.
The Beach, you cannot swim in the ocean, there are Rip Tides and security to warn you about swimming in the ocean.
Any room is a good room; we had a pool view room. I will say that was funny as I could barely see th...
