“Perfect Resort for Rest & Relaxation...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

We had a great experience staying here. Typically we like to do a lot of activities when we travel, but the sole purpose of this vacation was rest and relaxation. This was the perfect resort for that as all of the service staff are extremely nice and welcoming, the rooms are gracious and all have water views, and the food was delicious. The location is a little isolated and you'll need a taxi/bus to get anywhere, but we were content staying at the resort for the majority of the time.

Highlights/Tips: Great resort for whale watching (at least 15 sightings during our 4 day stay), our building was further from the construction site so we weren't really affected by the noise, and the rooms have small kitchenette's with Washer/Dryer's which was a nice amenity, the "Catch of the Day" Sea Bass meal is delicious, and fish tacos are equally tasty, resort has a private beach with free snorkeling, the couples massage is totally worth it.

Room Tip: Ask for the building further from the construction.

I cannot say enough about this fantastic resort. We stayed for a week with a group of about 30 friends and family, and were so thrilled with the level of hospitality we received from each staff member at this resort. Manny, the activities director, was truly a pleasure and he assisted us with group events throughout the entire week and truly made us feel appreciated, important, valued, and welcome. Barbara and Jazzie at the concierge desk were especially helpful as well as they assisted with all of our transportation and activities needs. Angel was our server and bartender for much of the week and was also fantastic, as was one of the bellman Gabriel. And of course the hotel manager Mario (aka Super Pollo) made an extra effort to ensure that our stay as well as our entire group was perfect.

The construction was not a distraction or nuisance to us at all, we noticed it, but it disappeared into the background quickly.

We were all very happy with the food in the restaurant and the pool bar. Additionally, some of our group went on a fishing trip early one morning and brought back their catch. The chefs turned some of it into a really great ceviche and we were able to cook up more of it on the grills provided in the pool area.

All in all, our stay was absolutely perfect. The quaint nature of the property makes it great for families and friends to enjoy.

We loved it and will absolutely be back.

We had a wonderful stay at Sirena Del Mar, a Welk Resort. We booked a Premier Ocean Front Villa. It was a beautiful room that I would compare to a one bedroom apartment! We went to Wal-Mart and purchased snacks, breakfast food, pop, water and beer. Amenitites galore of utensils, eating supplies, laundry soap, hair dryer, robes, grilling tools. We ate breakfast every morning on the veranda (and whale watched - bring your binoculars), snacked at lunch time or ordered from Palapas and then took a cab to a restaurant by the marina. We enjoyed the food from Palapas, it tasted good, was fast and plenty of choices for bar food. Food and drinks can be charged to your room to pay at the end of your stay.

The staff were wonderful! Jazzie will take care of you at the concierge desk, Santos will have a cab for you in 30 seconds, and Alex will deliver drinks regularly. Manny does a great job at activities!

The pool area and pools were clean; somedays warmer than others, but a good cool off when it got hot. There is music playing at the swim up bar, but it was not at all obnoxious! There were six of us so some days it was harder to find six chairs all together, but the pool area was not overly packed. Plenty of towels and mix of sun and shaded seats. There was a pool table and ping pong but otherwise, not a lot of entertainment. That was fine for us, but I don't think it would suffice for a family with kids.

We ate at a variety of places but our two favorites were: The Office - a must do on your Cabo trip.
Salvotore's - Italian, serving size is huge! Order a big meal and take leftovers back to room for leftovers the next day.

We had a couples massage in the cabana. Ahhhhhmazingly relaxing! We also took a catamaran sunset cruise. It was beautiful and we got to see lots of whales, too, which was a bonus. The only part of our stay that could've been improved was the room cleaning. We stayed seven days and had a complimentary cleaning on the third day. If we wanted it additionally it would've cost $12 per day. We did receive clean towels any time we called and asked but I would've liked to have our garbage emptied more frequently.

I would definitely recommend water shoes for the beach. It's an easy walk distance-wise, but the sand is something hard to explain. The water is very rough at the resort beach and there are tons of rocks. Again, the water shoes would be a must on your packing list. Also, have lots of small bills for cabs. From Sirena Del Mar to the marina was a $15 cab ride for four people. It was $25 for our group of six. None of the cabs we took in our whole week had change, so have small bills.

We had a room in tower one and I only heard the construction noise on one occasion. It was not bothersome to us at all.

This was a relaxing, quiet resort and it was precisely what we wanted. We are very happy with our stay. If you are looking for a lively resort with night life, look elsewhere, but you can find that in bars at the marina, too, and some back to stay at this lovely resort.

This was our first trip to Cabo and we are so glad we picked Sirena del Mar as our "home" for the week. This property is away from the crowds in Cabo, yet only a fifteen minute cab ride away from the central area. We also liked that it is a smaller resort with great pool areas and before you know it the other guests become your new friends! Joining in on the activities is a must and Manny, the Activities Director, is THE BEST!!

Room Tip: They are adding a new building, but right now all the rooms face the ocean, a real plus if you trave...

We stayed a week at this hotel with our two girls, ages 12 and 17, and loved every minute. Despite the construction going on (the noise was minimal), we had a great time. Extremely friendly staff, clean, well appointed rooms, spectacular views (we saw whales from our balcony!), good food, quiet, and a semi-private beach. If you like a smaller hotel, away from the crowds, this is the place for you! We rented a car to get around, and you're 10minutes from both Costco and Walmart to stock up on food for the kitchen, which was very functional and well appointed. You're 15minutes from downtown Cabo, and roughly 40minutes from the airport in San Jose. They had activities during the day which were well done, not very "glitzy", and fun. Definitely attend the fiesta night, where they served traditional Mexican fare (including dishes with Mole' sauce, which was hard to find), drinks, and there was dancing. They also brought in some local dancers who put on a great show, dancing traditional dancers (we expected it to just be OK, but were very pleasantly surprised). Internet access was good, even on the beach!

You can see the "arch", and the sunrises are spectacular! We'd definitely go back again!

Room Tip: We splurged and rented the penthouse - 2 bedrooms plus another room that could be converted into a b...

Pros:
You are off the beat and path. Secluded location with no options off site unless you jump a cab or rent a car.
Private beach that you can snorkle at. Short walk to get there.
Two big pools, swim up bar, hot tub. Very luch bath towels.
Super friendly staff who wait on you hand and foot. Unusual for Mexico we found were service is typically slow.
Really nice room with a balcony, small cooking area and dining room.
Couple of gas grills to cook on pool side although they were broken most of the time.
Couples with kids and retirees populate this resort - there is no life after dark.

Cons:
Isloated resort - you are trapped there unless you have transporation. This includes meals and Walmart runs.
Couples with kids and retirees populate this resort - there is no life after dark.
CONSTRUCTION - a new building is being erected on site. Lots of noise.
Expensive - compared to off resort places the cost of meals and drinks is 3X.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the construction and close to the pool (main area of resort)

If you look hard enough you can find somethign wrong with anywhere you go. Same thing applies here, but there aren't very many things wrong with Sirena Del Mar. Currently they are working on a new building, so during daylight hours there is noise and activity, but I didn't notice it from our room or by the beach. Generally, we only noticed the noise walking from our room to the pool or whenever we were close by the construction site. It did NOT detract from our visit, from the nice pool, from the beach, from the view, and certainly not from the great staff that we always enjoy visiting with when we are there (this was our third stay here). I know they have had plenty of complaints about the noise, but we didn't focus on it and it didn't bother us. The views from every room are incredible, the pool is nice and cool, great on a hot day, and the grounds are kept nice and clean. There are a few things to keep in mind though, that I hope the resort is also thinking about:

The pool is not large enough for added people. When the place is full, there are barely enough chairs to go around and the pool gets crowded quickly. We noticed people going down early and putting stuff on chairs to "save" them for later, taking up space for quite a long time while they were somewhere else. Not the resort's fault, but possibly an opportunity to figure out a better use of space around the pool. Bartender attendance at the pool bar is sketchy at times, causing a longer wait than sometimes I would have liked. I made numerous visits to the room to "restock" when they were away for too long. The food in general is good, not great, but nothing I will complain about (my breakfast chicken enchiladas were excellent). The rooms are fantastic, with great views and nice appointments. It is not a "party" resort by any means but they do offer fun activities during the day.

Someone mentioned that it is hard to find, and I agree, but once you get the right landmarks it's easy from then on.

We have already reserved our week for next year.

Room Tip: Higher floors for longer views. Avoid room 1104, which has a balcony right by the pool deck and ver...
