Rent a car to enjoy your stay as taxi fares can add up. Stayed in a 3 bedroom unit with 2 couples and there was more than enough space for all. Had 3 bathrooms also. Beautiful landscaping and decor. Food pricey. Not lots of nightly entertainment as other resorts I've stayed in. Would I stay here again? Yes, if I want to get away for just some good reading and relaxation.

Had a great time, staff was great and friendly . It was beautiful, however to eat on site was rather expensive so it pays to rent a car and go to the local Costco for groceries. I was disappointed that they charge 14.95 per day if you want to use internet for more than 30 minutes, even in their lounge, although the Sheraton had free internet in their lobby. They also raised the prices of a hamburger at the pool increased overnight from 1600 pesos to 2000 pesos ( 12 dollars to 18 dollars ) and water was 4.75 at the pool, a bit steep for me. They also did not honor pre arrival requests, but were great accommodating me once I got there , after lengthy discussions . I would recommend as long as you stock your refrig with water and walk to the Sheraton for internet !!

Hacienda is in between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas and it is really a great spot!
We are a family of three but we like to have family and friends join us when we travel to Cabo so we usually get a larger suite with 2 bedrooms. The suites are great and have everything you need for a great stay. Large kitchen, large family room and 2 really nice bedrooms.
We always fly in, grab a car and hit Costco and Walmart and stock up on food and booze. We always buy too much and end up leaving 1/4th behind for the staff. We like having a car when we stay here because of the location and it enables us to see much more of the area. Town is good for dinners out and for younger people wanting to party, but we really like to go out and see the sites of the neighboring cities and snorkel off different areas. Bring something that is water proof for your keys! We learned this one the hard way, you don't want to leave them on the beach and you don't want to take them with if you don't have something water proof (ziplocks don't work, we were stranded on a beach for hours waiting for the remote to dry) and don't leave anything in the car that is visible.

Pluses:
- Resort is big and rooms are too
- Great restaurants
- Great staff
- Grounds are beautiful
- Great swimming pool

Minuses:
- Not a lot around the resort
- Timeshare staff is pushy :(
- Food and drinks can get expensive (hit Costco and bring a big cup)
- Dangerous beach, waves are big and gets deep very fast. Don't go in unless you are a very strong swimmer

Room Tip: Check the site and try to find the building map before you arrive, if you don't ask they will gi...

We spent a week at del Mar and enjoyed it very much. The pools and beach are wonderful. We love breakfast at Garosoles. It's an all-you-can-eat order from the breakfast menu with a wonderful view. The rooms are nice. The two negatives are the quality and comfort of the chairs and sofa and the limited internet use. The service was outstanding from the maids, to the food servers.

As long as you are not wanting to be in the mix of downtown Cabo this is my favorite place to stay! The grounds are amazing, the service and food (shrimp tacos) by the pool are awesome...Laura is the best server there too! The main pool has a beautiful infinity edge pool...as much as i love this resort you need to know there will be many children enjoying the pool too but with so many pools to choose from you can find a quiet spot to read if thats what you are wanting. Request an Ocean front or Ocean view because it is beautiful. You can stay at the resort all week or head into town for other great dinners...so many places to choose from in Cabo! Have fun its a great place to visit!

This was our first time to Cabo San Lucas. The property was very well taken care of. The rooms were a bit dated, but let's face it, you won't be spending a whole lot of time in it! We had a two bedroom with three baths! It was perfect for a family of 4 with our grandma in tow. The housekeepers came every day and that was appreciated. The pools and beach were fabulous. The surf at the beach is treacherous and is not for swimming but people kept trying their luck - dumb. We rented a car and drove all over town, almost nightly for food. Cabo felt very safe. Recommend getting the extra insurance for the car rental (not just doing the liability only) as it will add only another $30 per day, but it gives peace of mind. Someone did door ding me so it was worth it. Also, had a guy turning in his car before me and he got into a minor fender bender and had to pay an additional $800 dollars. Ouch! My suggestion is cough it up for the peace of mind. For one week's stay we used about half a tank of gas - mainly driving into and out of Cabo. On the road to the property, it is not well marked heading from SDJ, coming back from Cabo the exit is "Puente Tiburon" - another reason not to go swimming. But heading it, take the off-ramp at kilometer marker 10 - you won't see a sign, but a heavily palm tree'd overpass. Head left back over the highway and then continue straight to a guard shack, pass through and you'll come to a "T" intersection and go right, the Hacienda Del Mar will be on the left. We spent a lot of time at the pool in and out of the pools. Wireless connectivity is very poor and they only give you 30 min a day free. We had to go to the reception building to get connected and still it was very slow. This is like a pre-requisite for modern resorts, so a little surprised at how poor it was. Also the food was very expensive. Poolside it was $52 pesos for a small bottle of water and $80 pesos for a beer and $180 pesos for a club sandwich. To put that in perspective, a six pack of Pacifico Clara is $57 pesos at Walmart. So take our advice and head into town and visit Walmart. The Walmart was very impressive! Very clean and had great selections of food and fresh produce. We stocked up on bottled water, beer (of course) and lots of breakfast foods as the breakfasts at the property are decent but the "buffet" is $16 US a person and not everything is included. The tomatoes a la carte restaurant is very expensive. $5 US for a cup of coffee. We ate breakfast mostly in the room. Pitahaya restaurant was very good. They have specials during the week and we went to the $50 US per person "all you can eat" which was pretty funny. The portions are very european, make that tiny! We each had an appetizer, soup/salad, main course and another main course from the grill. I recommend the Mojito Maui - very refreshing!
Now on to Cabo. We have been to Mexico twice before, but that was pre "drug war" and not to Cabo. Let me tell you that we felt very safe the whole time and we walked all over the town. Parking can be problematic, but several "big name" restaurants have their own parking. Also the best parking deal in town is the parking garage at the "Luxury Lane" mall. $15 pesos for 0700-2300! After that it's $90 pesos. The mall is centrally located right by the marina, so the location is good. For restaurants, try "The Office" on Medano beach (killer margaritas), Maria Corona, Mi Casa, Hacienda el Coyote, and for "bar food" the Baja Cantina on Medano beach and Cabo Wabo - Sammy Hagar's place where the food was actually very good!
For activities, its hard to beat relaxing by the pool - bring a good book. Also, I recommend brining a large beach bag which I filled with ice and beer from Walmart and sipped throughout the day. It just killed me that I could get an entire six pack for less that the cost of one beer pool side! Also if you have a car, at kilometer marker 12 and 15 are two public beaches good for snorkeling. We bought snorkel gear at CostCo ($599 pesos for a set including fins - good quality) but you can rent from the property - same place you get towels. You can bring the towels to the beaches and it looked like people were brining/renting beach umbrellas as well. We'll do that next time. Good snorkeling around the rocks at each beach. Watch the tourist boats - it would have cost $60 US a person to be ferried there when they are only a couple of minutes away by car. Also, bring some bread, we brought stale baguette and the fish literally swarmed us! My daughter was surrounded in a whirling vortex of fish - awesome! Both beaches had parking and Mexican police there. Again, very safe. I brought a waterproof swim wallet that I put my keys, ID and some pesos in. We also used Baja Outfitters for a water shuttle to the arch and lover's beach. We highly recommend them as they send boats regularly every 1/2 hour and you can come back when you are tired. The snorkeling at Pelican beach, right beside Lover's beach is the best. Again, watch out for all the boats. Depending on when you arrive, you might have to traverse some rocks to get between the beaches, but very manageable, even loaded down with beach gear. Instead of the typical jewelry and iguana hawkers, there was one young entrepreneur selling ice-cold beer! Sheer genius! $50 pesos was sooooo worth it.
We managed to all get some color but no one got burned - remember to bring lots of waterproof sunscreen. The spray on kind was very easy to use. Swim-shirts for snorkeling also helped.
Back to the property. Some things to be aware of. The shops at the Sheridan side check in were very good. Silver there was priced at the same out in town without having to haggle them down. Also the T-Shirt shop was very reasonable with good quality. Picked up a great T-shirt for $12 US. The hidden gem of the resort was the gym. Very well equipped and free! Can you believe it? I worked out there three times and it was never crowded. They have dumbbells from 5-50 lbs, olympic bars, squat racks and about 10 machines. They also have about a dozen treadmills, but who would pick that over running on the beach? The one catch is that you need closed-toe shoes. I didn't bring any! But luckily, my son brought his sneakers and I was able to borrow his even though they were two sizes too big . . .
We really enjoyed our stay. The entire family had a great time. I hope this review helps with your planning! You will enjoy Cabo.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view if you can!

Another wonderful 2 weeks at the Hacienda del Mar and Los Cabos. We are owners and make every effort to go back once a year. Mexico for us, and especially in Los Cabos, is as safe as Vancouver, Canada. Whether it is walking in and around Cabo San Lucas or in the heart of San Jose, day or night, we feel at home.

The grounds and accomodations at the Hacienda Del Mar are wonderfull. The staff are all amazing and work extremely hard to ensure you have a wonderful vacation. They are one of the reasons that make our stay such a pleasure.

A special thank you to: Oliver, Josua, Rafael and Sr. Ronaldo Peche at checkin; Emilio and Federico at concierge; Alberto and Saul at Pitahayas; Sarahi, and Sra. Trujillo (who looked after my daughters bee sting); Sra. Cedillo and her staff in reservations and the staff a Girasoles ... Ana, Bartolo, Francisco, Margharet, Isreal, Monica, Raul, and Daisy.

We have travelled to many places around the world, but coming here is our favorite place to visit and stay.
