New, clean, modern property with an amazing terrace pool and hot tub. The main improvement would be keeping the terrace pool bar open through the spectacular infinity pool sunset!

One " not so desired" aspect is over priced drinks in stingy quantities.

Be aware that since this hotel overlooks the very active local fishing marina that the early morning activities might awaken you. However, these activities are interesting to observe and bring the sea lions and pelicans right up to the piers and are fascinating. The sea eagles were magnificent.

The complimentary water taxi shuttles over to a pristine secluded stretch of impeccable beach and shoreline.

The hotel room is restocked with complimentary beverages of 2 beers & 2 sodas & some water. The only decent restaurant choice within waking distance is the Drunken Sailor - the shrimp burger & shrimp studded potato were delicious.

We do not drink tap water while in Mexico - you must be very proactive in getting water bottle refills in your room.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms are at the west end and on higher floors.

Have to say this is a hidden gem, and now under new management. Hotel has one of most awesome rooftop pools, food is superb, staff super friendly. The Puerto Los Cabos location is prime, excellent beach club, and million $$ yachts glide by as you enjoy sweeping views from rooftop super chic pool. Come now while you can. In six months, this will be Cabos IN spot for its music, vibe, attention to detail and utterly tranquil location. Forget the Hollywood havens, and head to El Ganzo.

Just got back from here two days ago. LOVED it. What a cool, modern place to come hang out. The rooms are new and very comfortable. So much to say. This is in the new marina NOT in the Los Cabos marina. About 35 mins from Los Cabos, closer to San Jose (a few mins). VERY high end. Love their social media (see Facebook). The rooftop bar and pool views are worth going here for. Their pool has a jacuzzi that is all glass, amazing and unique. Excellent food and the service was above and beyond normal (typical for Mexico). They have weekly events as well. Adults only, not all inclusive. Two restaurants nearby you can walk to. Check out The Container too, excellent food. This resort is at the new Marina, your views are yachts and the ocean. Not a bad place to be at all.

Room Tip: They're all good

I can't say enough about the excellent service and amenities at Hotel El Ganzo. I was nervous about going to Cabo and dealing with either trashy chains or soulless all-inclusives. Instead I found myself at an oasis of culture and aesthetic delight. If you find yourself in the area, this is the only civilized option.

Room Tip: With only 75 rooms, every room here is a treasure.

Really wonderful stay at El Ganzo. The rooms are great. I really enjoyed listening to the music, both live and on the Sessions playing in the rooms upon arrival. The staff is warm, courteous, and friendly. The roof deck has an amazing view and great atmosphere. Loved it.

Overly simple, relaxing vibe, very clean describe this exceptional hotel. Staff was friendly and location next to the marina, easy for whale watching. It's all about the arts and music. Questro Group has some great properties in the neighborhood great for doing off site groups, weddings, etc. Beds are great!
