The resort was very nice and was as expected. It seems hard to find many pictures on the internet. The rooms were spacious but I read in other reviews to ask for an upgrade, we were RCI members but they refused to upgrade us. They denied us without even looking to see if the resort had any rooms available. The place was not busy as we were there the week before Christmas 2013. The food was good as we participated in the all inclusive for 3 of the 7 days. I would suggest not doing all inclusive for your entire trip as the restaurants in town were excellent as well. Visited La Casa Mexican restaurant in Cabo and the food was the best I have ever had considering my many visits to different parts of Mexico. Also ate at the Maro's Shrimp House, I cannot say enough about this place and the atmopshere. The food tasted so fresh, I had a kilo of grilled shrimp and two of us could not eat it all. The place get's busy so get there early. The last place we dined was Mona Lisa's which is know for it's sunset view. The food was also very good but had small portion's so a great place for a light meal. Very romantic and upscale atmosphere. The only downfall of the trip was all the timeshare people who harass you starting at the airport and continuing when you come in and out of the resort. The resort did not allow them to come on grounds but even the resort tried to sell you a timeshare. Another downfall was the rental car con, I rented a car through priceline for about 75.00 a week but when you get to the airport they tack on a bunch of fees and mandated insurance and by the time they were done it was $640 for the week. I would suggest not getting a rental and try to arrange a shuttle thru your resort. All in all I liked Cabo and would return there but be ready to say "No" to all the salespeople. Walk right by them and get out of the airport as fast as you can, they will lie and tell you that you are going the wrong way and all sorts of tricks, ignor them and keep moving forward.
