This place was not what was promised by the company we booked through. We are not "whiners", we are travellers and expect our accomodations to match the description or come pretty darn close to what is promised and paid for. When you hear the term, "too good to be true", it def applies here. I am aware this is Mexico and not the US, but that has NOTHING to do with service and quality. The 'remodeled" rooms are great, if you fight for one but the other rooms leave much to be desired. The staff was attentive when you had a currency note in your hand, other than that, no one understood much of what was going on. Oh yeah, we purchased a timeshare from Hacienda Encantada, the sister resort..hoping the service there is much greater than it was here.

Room Tip: Ask for remodeled room!!

I was very excited about this trip. The resort is beautiful and in a pretty good location as long as you dont mind getting attacked by all the sales men on the marina. I couldnt sleep at all. The beds were uncomfortable. I woke up in pain everday. They have three hot tubs that arent even close to being warm. I got cold sitting in them. And it is very loud here. Music playing at the bars in the marina till 5Am. Then the music at the hotel pool starts up at 7:30. and its not soft music it is loud! Not pleasant.

Just came back from four nights with family. Everybody was helpful, specially the breakfast and lunch crews. Location was excellent within walking distance to beach, shops, clubs and sevices. We had a 2 bed room suite which worked out great for the money having room for 2 collage kids.There was a kitcheenet and another full kitchen with a separate room with washer and dryer. The balconies were awesome,to our surprise there was even a private spa tub overlooking the marina. It was nice to have privacy when not at main pool. Of course this is not a five star but there prabably is not a better deal for a family of four. We did the all inclusive which worked out great for drinks.(which we did not wait long and were strong enough) The restuarants had a great selection and excellent help. Our kids never complained about the food and we always ordered different items. To those whiners, this is Mexico not the USA. Everything is taken in stride.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the two bed room suite.

We have been to Cabo a couple times and the experience we had at Maria Fiesta was amazing. Very central, great service, spectaculat food and if you are there for fishing like we were right on the Marina and the night life. We are now planning our next trip and are looking forward to another great experience there. Thank you to Miguel Castro from reservations for his hospitality.

Marina Location, close to lots of shopping and to down town discos. Marina view high up lovely, but if you are a light sleeper you will have to sleep with your door closed as the 10 or so discos across the marina are in a sound war for customers. Some of the staff were excellent. Some a little grumpy. I will review all of the restaurants associated with the all-inclusive plan separately, when I have time, but my biggest complaint over all was TOO MUCH SALT and they all need lessons in how to grill a steak. I was overall very happy with the service.
This is a 3+ star resort, the prices reflect that, so you get what you pay for. There is a second pool at the back of the hotel, with virtually nobody at it. It is cooler in temperature with no service.
The rooms off of it will be quieter at night and if you want a king sized bed this is where the rooms with them are located. This hotel will, I hope, eventually get a face lift.
There is a nice Spa, which I did not find until our last day, too bad, complimentary hot tub, steam and sauna, and full Spa services if you want to book them.
There is a gym on the 7th floor and a beautiful terrace on the 5th floor which over looks the Marina and has 2 hot tubs on it.
The breakfast buffet was good, the pool waiters could double their tips if they made a little more effort, and remember that when kids order drinks etc, they usually come with parents so do not ignore them. Happy kids= happy parents.
All in all we had a good time here
To the management, the restaurant food needs help and your website photos need work,
you could dramatically improve your bookings by improving your photos- Hey invite me back for a freebie and I will take photos all week and help you get your food back on track
Gracias

Room Tip: High up marina pool view lovely and noisy at night wi-fi close to pool back side quieter, no view...

I was pleasantly surprised - the staff really made extra effort to be friendly and helpful, i loved our room - with kitchenette, balcony with view of pool. We did the all inclusive --and since the hotel doesn't have restaurants (they have a breakfast palapa) - we were able to eat at an assortment of restaurants along the boat marina -- This turned out to be more fun -- since the menus were different at each restaurant and we could people watch. The price was right too! I like being in the middle of the action -- so being right on the marina was good for me - a super short walk to the downtown hotspots or the beach. I'll go back for sure...

There were 6 in our group ages 19-57 and everyone had an AWSOME time! We loved the pool setting and used it everyday we were there! My 4 kids had never had a trip that involved All Inclusive so you can only imangine how much fun kids in their 20's could enjoy it!

The food was great in all of the restuarants and the boys also enjoyed the room service, there is something for everyone and every taste. All of the staff was so great and easy to work with.

The location can't be beat for all of the hot spots or just grabbing a water taxi right out of the gate.

Perfect weather-food-drink-staff-location & FUN! We love Cabo and will be back!

Room Tip: The rooms are large and our family suite was really 2 ajoining rooms which worked great for us! One...
