With its very own Cultural, Art & Musical program, it is a member of 'Preferred Lifestyle' and offers 60 deluxe ocean view rooms, three Master, four Large and two Very Large suites. Expansive views of the Sea of Cortez and Puerto Los Cabos Yacht Marina set the tone. Perfectly situated between the area's natural beauty and modern delights, the property stands at the mouth of Marina Puerto Los Cabos bordered by the fisherman's wharf, and is only a 20-minute drive to the airport or just 5 minutes to the historic town of San José del Cabo and the famous Art Walk.

It took as a while to visit Los Cabos and the main reason for that was the fact we could never find a place we really liked to stay at... and then we found El Ganzo which checked off every single thing we liked plus offered more! It's away from the crowds and resort areas, it's clean and modern, provides quality dining experience on the spot and in the vicinity, doesn't break the bank and, to my surprise, is placed by two different "swimming beaches," which is something pretty rare in this area of Mexico! Location: located easy 25-30 minutes drive south of the airport, across the canal and away from the actual downtown, situated at the marina - very relaxing, very peaceful and non crowds driven. If you want to drive to San Jose "main square/downtown" it's about less than minutes super easy ride - that opens up a tone of additional food options. Clean, safe, convenient - some walking distance grocery stores and restaurant options. There are hotel bicycles at your disposal if walking isn't your thing or just want to take a ride in the sun :) Grounds/Building:when you approach the hotel you know it's going to be a different experience; cool art display welcomes you, the inside is sophisticated and with heavy influence of various forms of art, whether sculptures, paintings or just tags on the walls - super unique! Room: i dont think there are any better or worse room at El Ganzo, each room is unique! on top of being modern and clean you always get some nice ocean views and great bed - what else can you ask for? (typical items like TV, wifi, safe are present of course). Ours was 224 and it I wouldn't ask for any other :) Pool & beaches: there are some pools on the first level (didn't try those) and then of course the roof pool, which is a highlight of El Ganzo, I would modestly say, and then naturally you have 2 beaches - one on the marina side of the hotel just walking distance more of a "public beach" and then another one across the marina where the free/included water ferry/shuttle takes you to across from the hotel - a minute or two pleasant water ride :) the beach is nice and the beach club even better (see separate review/profile I have created for it, it deserves it!) and the water is actually one you can swim in, very unique and definitely a huge plus for this part of Mexico. Food options: we ate a couple breakfasts at the main restaurant, had some drinks and a lunch at the Beach Club (see separate reviews for details) and we enjoy it all but there is just so many great options short driving (some in walking distance) distance from the Hotel to pass on :) for breakfast we liked Lab Coffee (see my other review) or Dona Nena (unfortunately lost all of the pictures and did not review it but I can say it was great!) . If San Jose is not enough for you take a nice shoreline drive to San Lucas - we have been to many Caribbean Islands and I can say that the great food options here are just endless, it's just up to you whether you want to drive, walk or just stay on the spot :) Things to do: Overall: El Ganzo is the place that we were looking for when finally coming to Los Cabos, it isn't a huge resort but an intimate high quality property that provides not only a great experience but memories as well, we will definitely be back!

I had reservations at this hotel but then chose not to stay because of the beach. The private beach is not what I thought it would be. The hotel is not located on a beach. It is located on a marina, and you take a small one minute boat ride to the beach. The beach is very small, and honestly gives more of a lake vibe than an ocean vibe. If you love the pool, stay here. If you love the ocean, I suggest going elsewhere.

Didn't stay at the hotel, but it's way more beautiful than the photos show. Had an excellent time at the Beach Club for the day. $25 for a full day pass that goes toward food - plus Miguel (super nice guy) was there to let us use the Seabob and One Wheel. I had a blast! Highly recommend going out there.

The hotel is in beautiful location. Also have very nice design,rooms also looks nice . But in wc don’t have toilet brush ,when you wash your hands the water get stack in the sink and don’t go down. Servis in the restorant down is good people very friendly but the food is very bad and not cheap also. Pens they shave which day because they’re two different you’re going to have the same dish different size with different sauce or different taste. Rooftop it’s amazing the swimming pool and the Jacuzzi it’s very good . the service is very good and food also.

We vacationed here for a week in January 2020 We had no idea, prior to arriving , a water taxi and private beach awaited with full service ( best service was tied between the water taxi operator and the staff on the private beach ) , the rooftop pool and jacuzzi provided a incredible view. Camels, horses , marine life are a short walk around the marina , which is filled with beautiful yachts . The music studio in the basement was pretty neat and it was fun to watch all the artists that have recorded music there on our room Tv. All around great trip. Shame it’s not all inclusive. Plenty of restaurants nearby if the in house menu wasn’t appealing. Housekeeping was 5 star ⭐️ The room was nice, bright, clean however the balcony was very small ........ too small. Check in and out was fast and friendly and we rented a car for a few days the staff helped us arrange that as well.
