The view across the marina to the mountains is the greatest asset but it ends there. There was no welcome and the reception, at best, was impersonal and in our opinion somewhat surly. The main lobby is more reminiscent of a government building than a 4 Star hotel and the extensive use of tiled floors throughout the place and its... More

Good, inexpensive and modern hotel laid out like a resort but laid over a marina that is more fishing village than Cabo. I like this juxtaposition. It has all the feeling of a resort with the quaintness of the marina which made for nice walks. We got a nice boat tour complete with Blue Footed Boobies and dolphins. The food... More

Great place with amazing views of the marina and TetaKawi. Close to local bars/restaurants...walkable or by the hotel golf cart. The hotel restaurant is nice, but can get pricey. Beach is within walking distance down the street.

Went over Christmas, nothing much going on in the resort, food descent, you have to walk quite a distance to get to the food restaurant for breakfast. Pool lovely, marina lovely view. Would I go back probably not, but fine for my stay.

There is a little place called Shots that is fun and always have something going on. The Embarcadero Restaurant( at The Marina) just isn't what it used to be but... More

We stayed here as part of a tour of Mexico and found this place to be very comfortable. The rooms were spacious, clean, and came with a good view of the marina. There are safety deposit boxes in the room and the television has many American network stations. The wireless internet proved to be very fast.

You might be in Mexico, but you can still get ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox from the US. WiFi is good and there is a OXXO store on the corner for whatever you need. They have an ice machine if you need to keep something cold. Be prepared to get your exercise in, it is like 4 levels from the... More

Spent two nights at this hotel. Room had nice balcony overlooking marina, bay and hills of San Carlos. The view from our room and surroundings was amazing. Hotel had okay rooms, needed a little sprucing up. But very clean and good beds. Nice pool. Pool bar, breakfast was very good. Would recommend.
