Travelers' Choice
The Cabo Surf Hotel is a boutique beach resort located on one of the most privileged beaches in Los Cabos: Acapulquito, also known as "Old Man's". The hotel was voted the 7th best kept secret, out of 21, from Elle Magazine, and was listed in Lucky Magazine as one of the editor’s “no-apologies splurges”. The soothing sounds of rolling waves are heard all around the resort for our guests to enjoy.The quaint 36 rooms, seafood restaurant (the 7 Seas), and day spa (Sea spa & salon), face an ocean cove and sandy beach with rock formations and light jade green waters.

Our wedding last week exceeded all my expectations. We secured the whole hotel for our guests and had a wonderful wedding weekend. Everything about the hotel was perfect for our group. The setting is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, the food at the Seven Seas restaurant is delicious and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful, gracious and courteous. All of our guests at one point or another commented how wonderful the staff was. The wedding itself was all we could have asked for. Even with the possibility of a hurricane/tropical storm hanging over us, the staff at the hotel made it happen! With Caroline leading the show they went above and beyond to “pull it all together” so that I could spend the day celebrating our kids and enjoying our guests. My suggestion if you choose Cabo Surf for your venue be sure and check with Caroline before you make any decisions. (Vendors, timing, activities) etc. She is a wealth of knowledge and if she doesn’t know the answer, she’ll find it out for you! Wonderful spot! I can’t wait to go back!!

We spent the week at Cabo Surf Hotel and when we return to Cabo will be back to stay here! The beaches in Cabo are unswimmable, but the Cabo Surf hotel has one of the only breaks you can get into the ocean for surf. It was easy to rent boards for the days we were there and they also offered surf lessons. The service was phenomenal! We were greeted with ice creams from the 7 seas restaurant right away. And the food!! If you eat at the 7 seas you have to get the Sashimi tuna roll and the Grilled tacos. We also booked massages. It was so nice to be able to have everything we needed just within the resort. The service was wonderful and the maids went above and beyond in cleaning our rooms each day. They also helped coordinate our airport pick up which was a breeze and only about 20 mins from the San Jose airport. Thank you again for the kindness and the wonderful stay!! If surfing and relaxing and good food are what you want during your stay in Cabo then this is the only place to stay in Cabo for you :-) -Emily and Jake

This place is absolutely amazing. If you are looking to stay at the best hotel in Cabo that is smaller, quieter, and feels like home, this is the place. The rooms were incredible, and the staff was amazing. Could not ask for better service. Shoutout Toño, the best bartender, and angel, michel, basically everyone who works there. Cleaning lady’s were amazing, I brought my own blanket and each day they made it into an animal on the bed. They cleaned better than any place I’ve stayed. I spilled wine on my dress one night (and it dried for like 2 days) and I asked If there was any way for them to get it out, and I got it back the next day completely stain free and freshly washed. The food was great, I loved the avocado toast in the mornings and the fish tacos for lunch. Everyone knows your name and makes you feel like you are at home. Make sure you get a room facing the ocean, the left side of the hotel is the best. There is an additional pool and hot tub that is much more private and the view is breathtaking. We could see whales in the ocean from literally anywhere in the hotel. Can’t wait to come back!!

The hotel has a great vibe with a easy- roller surf break in front. The restaurant, the 7 Seas, has excellent service and delicious food with a wonderful ocean-front deck overlooking the ocean. We especially enjoyed Michelle and Angel who took wonderful care of us each day!

My daughter got married last weekend at Cabo Surf Hotel and everything about the weekend was absolutely perfect! We had 140 guests coming to Cabo and filled every room in the Hotel with our guests. Our family and friends loved everything about the Hotel from the wonderful service, excellent food quality, beach and pools, and of course the views from their rooms. They all said they would go back. Our wedding weekend started with a poolside Welcome Party on Friday, a beach/pool party on Saturday and the actual wedding on Sunday. Each event was special and outstanding. The wedding coordinator, Caroline, was fantastic from the moment we met her. She worked with us throughout the process to make sure my daughter had the wedding of her dreams. Her staff was there every moment to help with whatever we needed. Eric, Laurent, and Juan Carlos were always there to assist us. The 7 Seas restaurant has excellent food and service as well. We so appreciated, Angel, Carlos, Jairo, Tono and Estephanie. We will return to Cabo Surf Hotel for family vacations and I would highly recommend it for a vacation or for a special event in your life. Thank you again to Caroline and all the wonderful staff!!!

We visited Cabo surf for a wedding and it was absolutely gorgeous. The hotel grounds are beautiful, the ocean water was warm, and the service was truly above and beyond. Shout out to Michelle and Kennedy who took incredible care of us throughout the weekend. I couldn’t believe how good the food was, and how many healthy options there were. I also had one of the best massages of my life from Rossy in the spa. The actual wedding took place on the beach and was out of this world. They built an entire aisle with gorgeous arches. Unforgettable! I would highly recommend this place and hope to visit again.

Outstanding visit again!!!! The hotel was immaculate and all staff...from the front desk to housekeeping to 7 Seas to Surf Shop were tremendous. Laurent was beyond helpful in showing us rooms for future visits as well as giving us great local recommendations. We also appreciated his constant great attitude along with the other front desk staff. Artemio, Eric, Leti and Manuel also wonderful! We are already planning our next visit. We so appreciated the great care that the staff took to make us feel safe re: COVID. The Cabo Surf Hotel is truly our happy place!

This was my first time visiting Cabo San Lucas and it won’t be my last. Cabo Surf was extremely safe, clean and accommodating to our entire entourage throughout our entire stay. Service was top notch. Caroline the event planner and front staff were so helpful. Seven Seas restaurant was 5 star. Best sea bass I’ve ever eaten. Restaurant staff couldn’t have been better. The on site spa was also 5 star and very affordable. Planning my next stay already.

Absolutely beautiful small, charming boutique hotel located on private swimmable beach. All the rooms are great and face the ocean - we were in garden view rooms and still had ocean views. Service and food were wonderful. If you hate big resorts then this hotel is perfecto. Located about 6 miles from Cabo San Jose so easy cab or car ride - further from Cabo San Lucas. Walkability not great so get a car or plan to cab it everywhere but that didnt bother us - we loved the surfer vibe. The restauant was delicious, chill with palapa roof and everytable facing ocean. Thank you Cabo Surf - we will be back!
