“Serenity by the Sea”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Wonderful view, food , and staff. Stayed second week of Dec. 2013. Temps: 68 F. evenings 72-75 F. in afternoons. Beautiful water for snorkling. somewhat agressive about time shares, but otherwise great trip. Airport personel tricked me into buying round trip transportation to my hotel which was actually an agreement to attend time share lecture to be able to receive the return transportation to hotel for a discount.

Just had a pedicure at the desert spa at villa del arco in cabo. It was awesome. The pedicure is very thorough and efficient. It was 45 minutes. The room is beautiful, extremely clean. The staff is very professional & friendly. Would recommend to anyone. Price is excellent as well.

We went in November for one week after a business stay in Vegas. Just excellent this location and the infrastructure. We have chosen all inclusive and it was really a surprise for us .. all meal are just perfect in restaurant "a la carte" with a high quality of service.
Food presentation in the dishes with the right flawor and like a request to be on Michelin Guide.
All people are very customer oriented and well educated in the hotel **** management .
We really appreciate and are ready to return their... but as we are living in Switzerland it's maybe not soon. (Unfortunatly..)
No issue with timesharing agent.. we spoke French and not in the goal of this business.

Room Tip: We havent a sea view, but the room was very clean and big. So no specific recommandation, maybe bett...

The hotel was fabulous, but have to recommend that if you go there with children there is not much for them to do as far as pool games etc. Our family rented a 2 bedroom suite, lots of room. Staff was extremely friendly, and always there to help and make sure you have a good time

I've been to Cabo before and it just seems to get better every time. At Villa Del Arco I couldn’t ask for more. The rooms and property were clean and it seemed like they were always cleaning something. Location is great far enough away from the noise but so close to downtown, $7 cab ride. Great beach location and a $5 taxi ride to the marina. The hotel is quite which is nice when it’s time to get some rest. The food was good and if you purchase the all inclusive you have the option of also going to Villa Del Palmar and access, but will pay at Villa La Estancia. Best part of the all inclusive, Room Service!! All inclusive seems like a lot but in the end well worth it. Stayed in a one bedroom suite with a huge balcony which we ate breakfast on the balcony overlooking the ocean. A bonus feature of our room it had a washer and dryer, came in handy. The Villa group has a market which is located at Villa Del Arco which has a wide selection of items. Little pricey but you’re paying for the convenience.

Villa Del Arco “Villa Group” was wonderful, the room and the people couldn't ask for more will definitely stay there again. We seemed to get superior friendly service from all staff but one stood out and was always there for us to fulfill our needs - Andres Beiber. Planning on going back in 6 months!! - sld

First stayed at Villa Del Arco about 3 Yeats ago. We plan on returning this April. The resort is clean and the rooms are spacious. Do all you can to get an ocean view. The sunrise and sunsets are beautiful. It is easy access to the beach. I can't speak to the quality of the food because we ate in town or on the beach most of the time. Would definitely recommend for a nice relaxing vacation. We are counting the days until April.

Stayed at Villa del Arco in December - great hotel. It was small enough that all rooms are in a good location and not too far from the beach. The rooms are clean, the staff is great and the food was very good. The hotel is quiet and doesn't have much of a social seen but great for couples, very gay friendly too! It would be nice if they had a swim up bar or a gathering place to meet people, but I suspect that is why it has high reviews because it isn't a party hotel. The food was great but I highly recommend purchasing the all inclusive before you leave (on booking) otherwise it can be very pricey. Singles it might be a bit quiet. Not to mention a friend I had met at the hotel earlier, who switched hotels (was in the hotel the day before) came back with me one night and they wouldn't let him come for a drink unless he 'paid' so not so single friendly. I heard several other hotels do that too so I guess its standard. I would definitely stay there again, depending on who I went with. If your not into the time-share thing avoid the 'welcome' which they quickly try to get you booked in to. We were told it would be 90 minutes and it took almost 3 hours - not fun for a first arrival day.

Room Tip: Anything that has an ocean view over looking the pool would be good.
