I visited last week with a bunch of friends and we had a blast. Our casita was roomy. There were shelves on the walls that we were able to use to store things on and plenty of hooks in the bathroom to hang things to drive. We liked hanging out on the hammock on the porch enjoying the view. The...

Flew to Cabo and rented a car fairly cheap. I stayed for 10 days in Dec. in a Baja-Style casita or Palapa (ocean view). Was comfortable and cleaned daily. Had wind everyday except 2 days in the middle of my trip which was relaxing on the beach. Highlight of the stay was a boat trip to the Island Cerralvo to...

The shared area was clean and well stocked, but none of the showers drained so you end up standing in backed up water; kinda gross. In the casita there was an extension cord to power a couple of devices and a couple...

First off, the staff was mostly great. Friendly and helpful, especially Irael, he was always ready to jump in and get whatever we needed. Siena was super friendly and fun. The place has got a great set up and grounds that are built on a steep dune that leads down to the beach. the casitas are cute and nice. Nothing...

Thank you for your honest review. Although we are saddened to hear you had a less than great experience, we will use this feedback to improve the level of service we provide.
