“Tranquility Defined!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2010

My husband and I just returned from our first stay at Zoetry Casa Del Mar where we celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary. We were wowed from the moment we step foot into this beautiful hacienda-style beachfront boutique hotel! The lush gardens, amazing views, beautiful pools and ocean-view scenery of white sand and turquoise water truly make this all-inclusive top on our list of places we've visited!

We were upgraded upon arrival to a Master Suite...which was to die for! There were fresh flowers all over the room, a bottle of champagne already chilled, and a hot bubble bath filled the large Jacuzzi tub, just waiting for us as we opened the door. The view from our room was spectacular and I would definitely request this room again. The staff was so accommodating and helpful beyond any service at any hotel we've ever stayed in. We felt like royalty the whole time we were there and enjoyed the overall friendliness of all the staff.

The food was so fresh, healthy and organic that we didn't worry about counting calories this trip! The food and presentation was so delicious you would never think it was an all-inclusive resort. The drinks were excellent and so was the Argentina red wine we had for dinner. The chef went above and beyond and specially prepared the tuna we caught on our deep sea fishing excursion one day, and some amazing cerviche for an appetizer. Talk about superb service!

Overall, this resort is tranquility defined. It is small, sophisticated, and has an old world charm you can’t help but fall in love with. We enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere, massages on the beach, and were overall very pleased with our experience and highly recommend staying if you are looking for a little bit of heaven in paradise! It’s the most romantic place my husband and I have ever stayed and can't wait to go back!!

Our trip to Zoetry Casa del Mar in Cabo was relaxing, enjoyable, and so much fun all at the same time. My husband and I were treated like royalty in this beautiful resort. The service was exceptional – I never found my drink empty since every time I came close, a new glass would be presented to me. We enjoyed eating lunch by the pool side, without having the need to get up from lounge chairs since the menus, drinks, and food were quickly brought to us. One of the guys that worked there was Eddie – he was our favorite. The best waiter we had was Hector – the protector! The room we stayed in seemed brand new, very clean and modern. The bath amenities were amazing! We absolutely loved the shower. The ability to make free international phone calls was a great quality within the endless privileges package. We called the U.S. every day free of charge! We would definitely recommend Zoetry and will certainly return next year! Thanks for everything Casa del Mar – see you soon :)

Normally, expectations are low when you're headed to an all-inclusive resort but we had a great time at Casa Del Mar and the rooms and setting were better than we ever could have expected. Our room was huge and the staff worked overtime to make sure that our internet connection worked perfectly. The pools were great, the staff was incredible and we felt very taken care of during our entire stay.

The food could use a little improvement but the enthusiasm of the staff and their desire to make sure you're always satisfied more than made up for that shortcoming. The spa is wonderful and relaxing with top tier products. We felt like we were in a small hotel with just a few guests and were very relieved not to be staying next door at Dreams.

Only drawbacks are that the beach in front of the hotel isn't really swimmable and that their could be a few more onsite activities. The only thing I didn't like was the bed. It was the softest bed I've ever slept in and I felt like I was falling in.... I would have loved a firmer mattress but no place is perfect.

This was the most relaxing, beautiful and easy Mexico vacation we've done. The massages on the beach were great. The food was wonderful, the service was always with provided with a smile. Even the weather was amazing!

Although I had read several reviews that talked about the time share sales people, we never saw even one.

Go and see for yourself!!

This hotel has mixed reviews and is kind of expensive so I was a little worried when I book this for my birhday... all my worries went away when we got there! I love this hotel... small but exquisite!!! From the moment you arrive, they treat you like a star! Love the no check in or check out policy... the free international calls... the endless priviledges!!! This is an hacienda like hotel with normal size but very comfortable and well equiped rooms... Bvlgari toiletries, daily small deserts left at the room, great minibar and beatiful views of the Sea of Cortez. The pools are beatiful... somewhat cold but very refreshing! The view from the adult only pool is very relaxing and the music very soothing!! This is a place for romance and total relax... If you like nightlife/parties you need to go to town.
The food is 5star... sometimes the service is slow but you're on vacation and the wait is rewarded by very delicious dishes!!! The nighttime dinner by the beach is a dream!
The drinks are A+... beautifully served and all that you want is basically available!
The are so many little details that make this a real gem!! and we didn't even try the free massage...
After this experience I want to try all the Zoetry resorts... I already bought a package in November at Riviera Maya for my husband birhday and trying to book the one in Punta Cana...

My observations, based on a recent five day/four night stay at Zoetry:
THE GOOD....
* The property was beautiful, and well maintained.
* The employees checking us in were very nice, and well informed.
* The room that we had was pleasant, although it was a double double.
* The rooms were well kept, the cleaning staff very efficient.
* The golf course (Cabo Real) is five min away, and the resort pays for the cab.
* Challenging course (first nine) and quite picturesque
* A round for two, with clubs, cart, and four sleeves of balls will run you $550 USD

THE BAD....
* Service - I'd heard that, since the resort went all-inclusive, that some of the employees
were disgruntled. This was quite evident, especially in the pool area. Rarely did an
employee come to where we were lounging, and ask if we would like something. If we
wanted a drink, then one of us would have to go to the pool bar, where the employees
were gathered, and ask for one. There were exceptions, but not many.
* Food - Average at best. We had to leave the property, in order to find, what we felt,
were decent meals. We did not go to the sister resort, Dreams, because we spoke with
a few people at the pool, and they all concurred; Dreams food was worse than
Zoetry's. And if you're eating by the pool, expect a lengthy wait for your food.
* Spa - Pretty poor excuse for a spa. No A/C, so the doors had to be left open. My wife
had a massage, then a pedicure/manicure. The same girl did everything. Once she
finished the massage, my wife sat in an uncomfortable chair, while this girl complained
about no A/C, and took almost two hours to do just the manicure/pedicure. The prices
were the typical resort prices, and not at all worth it.

THE UGLY....
* Apparently, Dreams had overbooked their resort, and sent some of the people over to
Zoetry, to stay in some of the condos. So, now there's a group of guys in wife beaters
(sleeveless T-shirts), with their significant others, hanging out at the pool, getting
drunk, and carrying on like a bunch of children. This continued into the late evening, at
the open air bar, each night. We could easily hear them from our room. We hadn't
signed up for that atmosphere, otherwise we'd have made reservations at Dreams.
* There are several pools on property. If you choose the one nearest the beach area, be
prepared to here the nonstop pounding of the amps, set up on the beach at Dreams
next door. If you want non stop partying, go to Dreams.
Also, the venders, who are not supervised or monitored, kept coming up to us, trying
to sell their dollar jewelry, etc. I can understand them trying to make a living, so we just
went back to the main area of the property, and stayed near the pools there.

That's a brief summary of our trip to Zoetry. We were quite disappointed in the experience, and will definitely NOT go back.
