Why stay here? A generally peaceful, very clean and well maintained development with great staff. It’s an oasis of manicured beauty compared to the gritty throbbing level of commotion in downtown Cabo San Lucas. While the predominant customer carries an AARP card, younger persons and those with children also can fully enjoy the development. Those wanting party central will be greatly disappointed. This project is large and rapidly becoming gargantuan in scope.
Food/Drink: Meals prepared at pool grills were basic but delicious. Sandwiches, custom made at the upper deli, were tasty. Meals at La Nao restaurant were fine. Warning: margaritas from the bars reminded me of clueless college days. Stick to soft drinks and beer. Delicious meal at The Office in Cabo San Lucas. Reservations required, as it’s a madhouse. Fun atmosphere. Mi Casa restaurant OK with delicious drinks.
Transportation: Hmmmm, always a bit confusing in Mexico, but somehow works. We arranged for a van from the airport to the resort via staff one day in advance. Cost was $15 per, while another person paid $17. No r/t tickets possible. Return, also arranged via staff one day out was $13 per. Why the variations? Transport to and from the Rose’ was great and reservations and related coupons were not universally required probably due to modest demand. Some confusion by staff. A bit too far to walk to town for most.
If you missed Mr. Toad’s Wild ride at Disneyland, experience it here with the right driver and golf cart. Did Mr. Coppel consider funiculars in lieu of system installed?
Check In/Out: Why do facilities so generally oriented towards customers and service, delay admission to rooms until 4:00pm and require evacuation by 10:00am? Might additional staff be hired to clean during this gap?
Beach: Pristine area oddly lacking beach entrepreneurs and crowds. Walked it several times and only a handful of people on the 1-1.5 miles of sand. Swimming dangerous, but great for walking and jogging. Resort places chairs and cabanas. Super spot to read a lengthy novel in peace.
Pools: The pools were reasonably large with chairs and cabanas wedged along the edge. Some activities for adults and children. While signs indicate reserving chairs is not permitted, that is exactly what happens each morn. Half-hearted occasional enforcement of the “rule” failed to alter behavior. Another irritant is that a significant number of chairs need repair.
Rooms: Pleasant rooms but auditory voyeurism is unavoidable given the absolute lack of sound insulation in the floors and walls. Also staff must be trained to move complaining customers rather than solve problems. We moved twice. The first time due to a persistent sewer odor. The other move was caused by young gringos partying between their room and town in frantic boisterous attempts to locate more booze (successful) and women (not successful).
Time Shares: Time share staff near front desk took our first “No” as the only answer we’d give and we weren’t approached thereafter. However, there are armies of sales types with hordes of lemmings in tow throughout each day. If not an intended victim, the sales pitch is amusing to watch save for the modest disruption to peace and quiet and especially about the main pool that is on the carefully scripted tour. If interested in time shares (why oh why?) use the Internet to learn of resale values at this facility beforehand.
Budget Tips: Bring your own good coffee and filters unless you want to pay 30 pesos for two cups of self-made coffee in your room. Both delis stock fresh sweet rolls in the morning and at 3 pesos each. City Club store near Rose'; so buy essentials there.
