We stay in Cabo San Lucas almost yearly. My husband and kids were interested in taking surf lessons. After some research we made reservations for lessons at Cabo Surf Hotel. When we arrived we were told that due to high tide there may be no lessons today. We'd have to wait a few hours to see if the tide improved.... More

We regret that you did not have a acceptable experience with our surf school. We are grateful that surf lesson conditions are good for most of the year, but there may be days that are not. I discussed your experience with the surf school manager and to avoid the situation from repeating, they will call our guests when surf lesson... More

My husband and I just got married at the Cabo Surf Hotel and find it hard to describe how absolutely amazing it was, from start to finish!

If you're looking for the low-key ocean loving side of Cabo, this is it! What a gem of a hotel. Amazing ocean front rooms, friendly and service oriented staff, great beach with good surfing waves, and cool vibe. Nothing pretentious or showy here. This is not the Cabo of wild parties. Very clean, good restaurant, and nice location. I highly... More

We were with a large group of people (27) and had an entire wing of the hotel to ourselves. The accommodations and staff were exceptional. The open air restaurant with a perfect view of the ocean was fantastic. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather and excellent surfing conditions.

Be careful with this hotel. The installations are beautiful without a doubt. BUT we paid the highest rate for an oceanfront room once we arrived it took them 4.5 HOURS to give us our room (it looked that they overbooked) and they sent us to the smallest ugliest room in front of the parking lot. We didn't accept this since... More

Tremendous hotel and staff !! In Cabo San Jose, not Cabo San Lucas (twenty miles away) which is a plus. Much more laid back atmosphere than Cabo San Lucas. Less "touristy". You'd be hard pressed to find a less crowded beginner to intermediate surf break. All the kids learned to surf and the instructors were top notch. Food was very... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
