Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort
Ranked #5 of 43 Hotels in San Jose del Cabo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 11, 2005

We just returned from a 4 night stay at the Hilton in Los Cabos. It was a new and very well maintained resort more on par with a Hyatt vs. what you normally see with Hiltons (sorry Hilton chain). Just a little unorganized at check in time in terms of someone orienting you to the hotel adequately. Our friendly bellman checked us in but he was unable to really give us more than very basic information. The timeshare people really know how to contact you right away though! The first day the service was great, but then 3-4 conventions checked in and the staff got a little overwhelmed, but still very courteous. The hotel is within a complex of three hotels owned by the same person but run by very different chains/companies (e.g. Hilton, Melia (I think) and Las Ventanas). It was nice because the Hilton's bell boys could take you to the other hotels with the golf carts if you wanted to eat or have spa services at a different hotel. Nothing else within walking distance though. Pay mucho bucks for a cab or rent a car. The shopping center at Cabo is sort of a joke. It's mostly vacant and possibly more expensive than home. San Jose del Cabo was nicer, cleaner and I thought a safer version of Cabo. SJC also had good souvenirs. Cabo remined me of a beachside Tijuana with a nice marina area. Todos los Santos was very overrated and an 1hr 15 minute white knuckle ride on a two lane (no emergency lanes) highway where everyone was dangerously passing each other. The galleries were nice but we weren't in the market for $3000 + artwork.

Overall, the Hilton's rooms and bathrooms were traditional and beautifully decorated with travertine and marble and kept very clean. The infinity edge pool was lovely and took advantage of a gorgeous beach view. The pool deck was quiet with nice teak chaise chairs and umbrellas which run low when the hotel is busy. Yummy, but expensive drinks & munchies ($9-13 for a sandwich and/or 3 tacos ala carte). But hey, you're on vacation. However, the dangerous undertow at the beach was unexpected given the lack of waves - not for kids. A perfect couples and or family resort, but there weren't too many children around. It doesn't really compare with super luxe Palmilla, Las Ventanas, or Esperanza, but the prices aren't comprable either. I would definitely recommended the Los Cabos Hilton.
Word of caution, when you go to a restaurant, double check if the tip is included. We accidentally tipped the waiter at Palmilla a 20% tip on a $250 meal when it was already included. Yikes!!!

I have just returned from a 4 day business meeting at this resort. I found this a beautiful and serene location away from the hustle and bustle in downtown Cabo San Lucas. The hotel is very nice with some very simple and elegant decor. The room was wonderful with a fantastic bathroom containing a whirlpool bathtub and large glass-faced shower. Although there was some confusion at check-in (we were travelling with a big group) it was quickly, professionally and politely resolved. Each room has a water view some more direct than others. The infinity pool is breathtaking and the hotel's location on the beach is truly beautiful. The service including maid service was wonderful. I do have to say the food was a bit average both in the restaurants and at our catered events. Eating off site resulted in some GI upset for some of our guests. Stick to bottled water and try to stay away from ice and un-cooked veggies.

The meeting rooms were very similar to all meeting rooms in any hotel, very generic.

Downtown Cabo is a 25 minute cabride away and very easy to access. There are some well known chains there such as Margaritaville, KFC and Burger King. The nightlife can be quite fun at Cabo Wabo and Squid Row. I do caution about being alone anywhere at night due to some quiet allies and deserted streets which unpredictably pop up. That being said, we were there with about 200 people and not one had any security issues.

Enjoy your time in Mexico!

What a pleasant surprise. This was simply a little 5 day getaway and it turned out to be exactly what we needed. There are direct flights form LAX or San Diego for easy travel.

The hotel and the staff were terrific, especially the bellman/valet. If possible get a package where the breakfast buffet is included. A rental car is also necessary as you are a good distance from each town. I recommend doing this online ahead of time (better rates) and not using National. The National Car rental people were the rudest people we encountered the whole time there -- both a pick up and return!

The Hilton is a great getaway and not a party hotel. However, the Mexican Martini in the bar is great! There were alot of couples, 40+ and very few children. There was a separate kids pool so that was great. The spa treatments are well worth the price and the service.

What an absolute delight. We were there for a conference and I was weary b/c I don't care for Hilton hotels in the US. There was no need for worry as the grounds were beautiful and so well kept. We typically stay at Ritz, 4 Seasons here in the US and of all the hotels we have stayed out. This hotel was without question the best in terms of having the nicest and caring staff. The only way I can describe it is that you can feel the nice hotels pay the staff to be nice to you and this resort the people were so genuine and nice.

Our mini suite was very nice and well maintainted. We had such a lovely ocean view and my husband saw the whales one moring.

Now the only negative. The food is really terrible and I don't know how else to say it. They try really hard though to get feed back on how to improve their food. The brunch buffet isn't bad but pricey if you have a large family.

If they could improve the food, it would be one of the best resorts we have stayed out in Mexico.

the hotel is beautiful and the service was great. the employee were always friendly said hello smiled and would ask if you needed anything. even getting a wire cutter from maintenance when we needed to cut off a piece of our sons braces that was cutting up his mouth. the pool was always warm. there is a place to do crafts and get your hair braided right at the hotel and the woman there was very nice. we also loved the deli for lunch and snacks. the prices were very very reasonable and you could charge it to your room. i would definetly go again.

We went to Cabo San Lucas / San Jose Del Cabo in August 2003 for our honeymoon. Yes, it was a long time ago, but we did not get the chance to write this review until now! Anyway, we spent 3 nights at the Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort and 4 nights at the Crowne Plaza Los Cabos. The Hilton Los Cabos did not provide shuttle transportation from the Airpot in San Jose Del Cabo, so we had to pay our own transportation. We took the group shuttle, which drops off different people to different resorts down the corridor. The Hilton was in the middle of the line of drop off requests. When we got off the shuttle, we heard another couple say, "I hope our hotel is as nice as this one!" It was beautiful! And as soon as we got off the shuttle, a bell hop came over and carried our bags to the front desk and gave us "welcome" margaritas. It was a great start to a great vacation.

Since it was our honeymoon, we got upgraded to a junior suite for free. I can't really tell the difference between their "deluxe guest room" and a junior suite, except the balcony was a little bigger and it was on a higher floor. We also booked through AAA, so we got the buffet breakfast included for free. That's an extra $20/person/day that we saved. That was a good thing. Their breakfast was really good and many guests from neighboring hotels came to eat at this buffet. It was crowded all the time. We also ate here for lunch and dinner the 1st night because we were just settling in. However, my husband got sick on the 2nd day with the stomach flu. Since we didn't eat anything outside of the hotel at this point, we suspect it might have been the fruit juce from the breakfast. (We were careful to only drink bottled water and eat cooked foods.)

When my husband was well enough to hit the town, we took a cab to Cabo San Lucas to have dinner at the Cabo Wabo. The food was really good. We walked around town a little bit and did some tourist shopping. Then we took a cab ride back to the hotel. The cab rides were a bit pricey...I believe it was $30/one way.

As for the room in the hotel, all rooms come with a jacuzzi. We found this especially relaxing after walking around Cabo all day and night! And the TV had a lot of channels to choose from, which was a good when relaxing in the Jacuzzi...there is a shutter that opens out into the living area from the hot tub! The beds were very comfortable...firm, but not too firm. Our room overlooked one of the pools overlooking the ocean. I believe all rooms have at least a partial oceanview. We also got a couple free drink passes from their time share program, even though we didn't even see them. They just sent the certificates to our room along with a note to visit them if we have the time. But we just used the drink certs and weren't bothered at all!

The pools were great! They were very beautiful and very well maintained. I think they were about the more gorgeous pools I've ever seen. I also enjoyed their swim-up bar where they served sushi! Yummy! The lounge chairs were very comfortable too. I didn't have a problem finding a chair, although sometimes during the day the pools were pretty packed. Not too many crazy kids running around. As full as this hotel was, there was still enough space for you to feel special.

I highly enjoyed my stay at the Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort. It was very relaxing and I had plenty to do to keep me occupied. I would definitely visit again, but we'll stay away from the fruit juice next time!

The design of the hotel and the attentive staff made it an easy pleasure to stay. My family, kids 3 to 14, and their parents realy enjoyed the pool and hotel. The hotel is large enough to have what you need but not so big that it is inconvenient to get from room to the pool, food etc. Best place we have stayed. The price is not cheap but we got a great experience. John
