“"Second Time At This Resort This Year"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

We came back because of the hospitality of the staff such as Raul, the front office manager and others, too many to mention. We also love the beautiful well maintained grounds. The rooms are modern and clean. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing holday, this is the place to be.
Another reason we love this place is because of the tennis. There are 3 well maintained tennis courts. Luis, Omar and Ivan are in charge of the tennis. From Monday to Friday at 10:00 am, they run a great free clinic where you will hit two huge shopping carts full of tennis balls. Also if you would like a private lesson, they would happily accommodate you. They will also try to find someone to play tennis with you if you are alone. Arrive early at the courts so they can arrange something for you. They also have very good tennis racquets you can borrow at no cost if you don't have your raquets with you. Luis, Omar and Ivan is one of the reasons my wife and I keep wanting to go back to this resort. Hoping to go back soon!

Room Tip: The rooms located near The Napa restaurant have a beautiful view. Building 5.

Cocktails made with local liquor, barely drinkable. If you are wine drinkers like us, look elsewhere. Mostly had to dump them out. Food was ok? Staff were gracious enough. Actually had nice tacos by the pomthst were better prepared than in the buffet. If you want anything nice here, be prepared to pay extra! Nice beach, looks like the Sahara desert it is so huge. Very quiet area, expect to be traveling if you need activities.

By reading other reviews, I know what to expect. This former Presidente Intercontinental, now Holiday Inn, resort is certainly not at all glitzy or the best of what Los Cabos has to offer. Head South a bit and you will find plenty of that, along with higher densitity, more noise and a higher price tag. We were happy with what we had. We got a complimentry upgraded room (request made by Cheap Caribean), We had a great ocean view, firm bed, large shower, though the bathroom itself was small, a little fridge, and bottled water each day. It was clean-not perfect-but clean.
The downfall is the food. Nothing was great. Every dessert was a disappointment. However, if you go in knowing this, then you won't be upset. We managed to find something at each meal to make us satisfied. If you are a "foodie"; don't go. If you look at food as a necessity to keep you alive, you will do fine.

The only activity offered at the resort that we joined in on was the morning bike ride. Unfortunatley the bikes were not so good-but we made the best of it. And you can only take them out with a guide. That was disappointing, as I thought we can use them as our transportation to get around. So a couple of mornings we went out at 9:30 to San Jose center, the marina, the organic garden, and such. It was always spirited and fun with our guide, KEVIN, who kept a good sense of humor about our bikes and getting into (and out of) construction zones from time to time. He was quite enjoyable.

I would recommend going kayaking and snorkleing with HITIDE. It is expensive, but worth it. We went to the Arches (Arco), which was beautiful in the morning, and not too crowded. I think the snorkleing at Chileno Bay & Santa Maria is better, but never having been to the Arches before, we decided to do that.

We plan to return to this same resort, but next time rent a car, go to more beachs & go horse bakriding in the moonlight.

Room Tip: First floors have hamocks, with a surcharge, but you are too low to get a good view. I like the sec...

First time back to Cabo for fishing in 15 years - finally got the chance to go back and take my boys, everything's changed and I was at a loss. But Enrique, the resort concierge was perfection. He went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was top notch. He was more than helpful in everything we needed. I had a lot of questions, and he had all the answers, was extremely patient, and not once did he hesitate to help out.

The resort itself is self contained. You have everything you need within the resort. Your vacation is what you want it to be. If you want to relax and stay on the property you can. If you want to explore outside the resort you can. We felt extremely safe. They employees were always pleasant, and helpful. If you've been thinking about making a trip out, do it!

The place used to be called the Presidente Intercontinental and we were hesitant to try it since Holiday Inn sounded more like a domestic destination, but thanks to upper managment that the name is the only thing that has changed, because nothing was broken. We enjoyed the casual laid back atmosphere and the staff was as always like an extended family. Shout out to Luis Ocampo at the bar. He always has a smile on his face and keeps the energy and conversation going.

We went for a quite get away and we found it! The grounds are beautiful you couldn't ask for a better location! If you want a five star hotel with five star meals you don't want to go here. However, if you want a clean, friendly, beautiful place to relax and have some fun...this is your place! We even got to release baby sea turtles into the ocean. If you do go be sure to check out the quiet pool with the best bartender, Alma! Make sure to tip her well and tell her hello from Bob and Kathi :)

Room Tip: The rooms on the first floor have a hammock on your lanai...it is wonderful! Building 1 it the quiet...
