“It was just ok”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

We stayed at Cabo Villas during Thanksgiving week, 2012. We stayed here because someone donated their timeshare for a fundraiser auction, and I won the auction. We stayed in a one bedroom executive suite. It was room 305, this is the floorplan that has a circular bay window that overlooks the large pool and the bay, and a small patio overlooking the hot tub. This was our first time to Cabo, but we travel often so I feel my comments carry some level of credibility. I'll keep this short and sweet.
What I liked about Cabo Villas:
- The location is great if you want to be near the marina/downtown area. We walked to/from the marina and downtown several times. However, there were also a couple of times that we took a taxi because it was later at night or we were tired. For kids, the beach out front is nice and swimmable. If you like beach activities, you just need to step out and there are several activities right there. Kayaking, waverunners, parasailing, you name it. The grounds were nice and clean, and I found the staff to be very good. The room was nice, but nothing too fancy. It was nice and spacious, which was great. The AC blew very cold so it was a relief to come to the room after spending time in the sun and heat.
What I didn't like about Cabo Villas:
- Cabo Villas is a medium sized resort that is crammed into a very oddly shaped triangular piece of property. As a result, it seems sort of confining at times. While our room had a view, most of the rooms either face the pool, or face the walls of other buildings. Although we were pressured hard, we did not opt to sit through the '90 minute' presentation in order to get a VIP card. It would have only come in handy a couple of times anyway, because we did activities and ate at restaurants that were not associated with the card. We were also targeted one day while eating at the restaurant - they must have spotted us - and were offered a free/discounted stay for a subsequent week if we sat through the tour/presentation. Again we declined. I found out later that many Cabo Villas employees have a monthly 'quota' of presentations that they need to hit. One thing for families, or for travelers seeking peaceful rest and relaxation - the noise from the bars are overpowering at times. Both pool bars blast music during daylight and evening hours, and the Baja Brewing company had a live band one night that played terrible music very loudly into the night. The music selection at the pool bars is often unacceptable. They play hip hop and rap, and on more than one occasion, the songs were laced with cursing and even the 'n' word. Nothing like the 'vibe' in the video on the cabo villas website. Cabo Villas does not have any amenities or programs for children, so you are on your own there. Also, if you are with children, don't eat at the Mango Deck, it is a 'spring break' atmosphere not appropriate for kids.
Overall I would say it was 'just ok'. We likely won't stay here again, most likely because if we return to cabo we'll find somewhere a little quieter and more laid back.

Room Tip: Ask for high up, and ask for a view.

Cabo Villas is truly a home away from home. The staff is excellent, the food is delicious and it is one of the cleanest places we have been. Being so close to the beach, Marina and down town Cabo is a huge bonus. The pools are clean. Everything was absolutely perfect. The live music in the Baja Cantina is awesome. I just can't say how pleased we are with the purchase of our time share here!!

We have been coming for 8 yrs and once again Cabo Villas has met our expectations very very nice,we were upgraded to the Two bedroom next yr we will be back for two weeks. We love the fully furnished kitchens we shop at the local market and cook most breakfasts then relax until we hit the town for dinner

I have been going here for 5 years at the begining it was beautiful and clean, people were nice and now the service has gone down I noticed it wasn't as clean people aren't as friendly my sheets were dirty. It's just not as good. Not sure why. We have been trying for 2 years to get our second week there and they always say no they don't have anything available and during our second week they had no one in there. Just don't understand. So we bought another place. Guess we will see what happens next visit.

As short walk down the beach or a 5 minute walk through the mall and you are in the thick of the activity at the marina. Nice hotel. Limited kitchen but great views and very comfortable. Good food on site as well...They did indicate they were adding another building and more ammenities in the next year...

We stayed at Cabo Villas from Sept 15-20,2012 with a friend who has a timeshare. It is an awesome location because you can walk everywhere. You can walk to shopping, night life, restaurants and the marina. We never got in a car except to and from the airport. The complex is very nice and has great service and wonderful staff who are extremely friendly. Our condo overlooked the pool and was a one bedroom with a pull out sofa. The bedroom only closes by two pocket doors and a window doors. It was very clean and had some kitchen amenities. The bathroom had a walk-in shower and a closet and a safe with an entrance from the hall and bedroom. I highly recommend taking the 90 minute timeshare tour because they are not pushy and you get to see the nicest condo's in the complex and get a free buffet lunch or breakfast. You also get $100 voucher which we used for a 4 hour double kayaking tour and a 60 minute jet-sking but you could also use it in the restaurants. There is also a Mexican Fiesta every Wednesday that was wonderful!!

This is a very safe location to bring your family. Security is excellent and once here you can walk everywhere you want to go. Great food and service at the Baja Cantina Resturant and Bar which is associated with Cabo Villas. I have to give recognition to my waiter at the Baja Cantina Beach bar, LUIS VINALAY. This guy is the best waiter in Cabo and goes the extra mile to make sure you are taken care of. The good is great, prices are right and you can't beat this location for a great time. Adrian Dorontes is one of the great managers at the Beach club and I wanted to give him a should out also.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 4103 just above the big pool. Perfect one bedroom with a pull out couch. My wife an...
