My hubby and I spent a week in late September and loved every minute of it!! We will definitely be back. I have seen posts that say the food is not good and the rooms and grounds are dirty. I did not see anything like this. There were always plenty of people cleaning and the wait staff were always there to get you something to eat/drink. There were always plenty of great choices on the buffets to eat and our room (bedding, towels and all) were always clean. We were happier with the buffet choices than with the specialty restaurants, but the Sante Fe was really good! Our only bad food choice was the Japanese. The food tasted great but it made us pretty sick. I do wish they had better wine choices, but there were plenty of other things to drink.
It is true that you can't swim from the beach at the resort, but that is true of most of the resort beaches in Cabo. The pools more than make up for not being able to swim in the ocean.
Be careful when booking tours through the hotel. Be sure to ask how long the tour is and whether that includes travel time to/from the destination. We got stuck on a 6 hour tour that we didn't think would ever end.
