Sheraton Grand Los Cabos Hacienda del Mar
Ranked #31 of 71 Hotels in Cabo San Lucas
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 22, 2004

First of all, yes, this hotel is expensive to stay at. This was our second stay at this hotel, and after reading the reviews on this site I decided to keep mental notes about the place to pass on. First, the staff here was almost unanimously very friendly and helpful. Pool service was quick and the waiters were nice. Rooms are kept spotlessly clean, as are the grounds of the hotel. As for the hotel and the grounds, they are beautiful. Everywhere you look you find something architecturally or botanically appealing. The pools are great, MOST of the restaurants are good, and downtown Cabo is 10 minutes away. Things to consider: You are asked on your arrival to attend a "welcome" session. Here they tell you about area activities, hotel highlights, and transportation options. Beware, this all leads up to a time share pitch. If you tell them right off the bat, in no uncertain terms, that you aren't interested, they usually leave you alone. Unless you truly are interested in buying a timeshare here (or anywhere), avoid this trap. It isn't worth the free breakfast or cheap fishing. Taxi to Cabo is $20.00 one way. We thought we were smart and rented a car on our arrival, but after paying full coverage for insurance, and the weekly rental price we figured it probably would have been cheaper to use the taxis. Food at Tomatoes restaurant is good. Breakfast buffet is $25.00 Do yourself a favor and order from the menu, it's cheaper. Snack bar at pool has good food. The Pitahayas restaurant is touted as the best in Cabo. Two words: Overrated and Overpriced. One hundred thirty dollars for a California wine you might pay $40.00 for in U.S. Food is marginal. Believe me here, avoid this restaurant. Mixed drinks at pool are 7-8 dollars, beers $5.00. Look, Cabo is expensive, and when it's all said and done, Mexico is still Mexico and you might get iffy service or an occasional bad meal, or have your room cleaned late. If you've got the money to burn, can relax and enjoy the fun times Cabo has to offer, then the Sheraton is a great place to stay. We will definately return. If you want Disneyworld, go there, and avoid Mexico.
It's a whole different feel down there.

Of all the hotels we have stayed at over the years(which is quite a few), this is our favorite. And we're picky about hotels. The location is great -- situated in the corridor between Los Cabos and Cabo San Lucas (15 minute shuttle ride). The staff is extremely friendly, and service is very good. We had an ocean view room (ocean fronts were all gone) which worried me at first, but we still had a great view of the ocean and the golf course next door. Nice size rooms, huge bathroom with separate jacuzzi tub and shower. The only negative about the room, is that since the floors are all tile, you can hear people walking around above you, but we got used to it right away. Lounging by the pool is great. They have 2 for 1 drink-of-the-day specials every day, with happy hour from 11-12. We could see whales jumping out of the water from our chair by the pool. The pool bar also had a lunch buffet every day that was excellent (fajitas, shrimp, fresh guacamole, etc.) or you can order off the menu. Breakfast buffet was great (a little steep $20) with authentic mexican dishes, smoothie bar, and made-to-order omlettes. They DO offer time shares at this resort, and when you arrive they will ask if you'd like to have a presentation and a tour. You don't have to do it, but if you do, they will give you some free stuff. We got $100 to spend at hotel restaurants (De Cortez and Pityhayas are very good, DeCortez is better), and discounts (of like 40%) on excursions. So we did it. It's like 1 hr., and if you aren't interested, they don't pressure you too much. Make sure you do the ATV tour if you go. It's alot of fun. We hated to leave. We WILL be going back, which seems common -- many people we met there go yearly (or more) and have been to that hotel 4 or 5 times.
