This is the first time I have visited Cerritos Surf Colony. The second time for my wife. Let's start with the good: The beaches are absolutely fabulous! They are clean, well kept and fun! You can rent surf boards, surfing lessons, boogie boards or just go swim in the picture perfect ocean. For the average part: Hotel needs updating! Last... More

We drove from Cabo San Lucas and found this beach. Friendly waiters greeted us and welcomed us as we told them that was our first time there. After we got our food and drinks we set out to the beach and like most tourist places we were approached by vendors who were nice and respectful when we told them we... More

We first stayed here in 2011 and fell in love. The location can't be beat. (Request an ocean front villa when booking) Since 2011, we have stayed another 6 times. Each time finding the resort a little more run down , half built structures and hit and miss service. There are maintenance issues that don't seem to be addressed, cleaning... More

Some things never change and that's what is happening at this resort. We stayed here the first week in June and it was our third time here. The beach and the view are still wonderful but nothing else has gotten any better. The sliding doors still don't work and the dishes are mostly short in number. We stayed in the... More

The location here cannot be beat. First and foremost. But with that in mind there are some things this place can do waaaay better. 1- reservations and office. Nobody took the time to explain the area, give a map or talk to us about how to maximize our time. When we had a problem is was a giant "I don't... More

This was our 3rd visit to Cerritos; for good or bad, nothing has changed. We really enjoy the simplicity of the colony. We all slow down, nap, get away from electronics and truly relax and reconnect as a family. We rented our car from BBB rental car in Cabo. They are a new company in the area and I would... More

Ok, so if you want excitement or night life, go to Cabo. We had a group of 9 and we had the best family vacation ever! We were able to relax and enjoy each other with no time line. We were unplugged!

Why I loved this place is because it was so beautiful and serene. If your looking for a place to literally lay back and relax, this is your place. It was clean, the staff was super nice. I slept to the sound of the ocean and it was great. The place is outdated, they don't give you wash cloths (who... More

The Surf Colony has great potential but falls very short of expectations. The rooms are very basic, service is terrible, and amenities are none. The bathroom smells like sewage and pool was FREEZING. Not even worth the price of a motel 6 👎🏼.
