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!!!
