This is definitely an up-scale hotel, another guest I talked with here said they had stayed at a Hyatt Place in the states and this one is identical.
I have read the other reviews and they give a good idea of what to expect so I thought I would add my two cents.
My stay started out very nice, I found a great promo rate and they even upgraded me to a top 5th floor ocean view room. The hotel sits up a hill a little and is configured in a "L" shape with the front facing in a south-west direction, excellent view looking down the coast line and the cape. Across the street is a large 5 story time share complex so rooms here on the 4th and 5th floor will allow you to see over it, rooms on lower levels may have limited view.
There is a covered spillway across the street between the time share and a unfinished condo complex that leads down to the beach, easy access. It is not a swimming beach, waves of 6FT + break right on shore and it's not a "White Sand" beach but it is very soft brown sand and is very large, both wide and long.
The Hyatt Place is located at the south-west end of the main road of the hotel district, the buses turn around here and stop for a few minutes, very easy to get to El Centro Historical district or anywhere in between. The hotel is also on a corner lot with the other side immediately adjacent to the main highway to Cabo San Lucas or the Airport, this is a very busy and noisy road and can be annoying when at the pool.
The property is well maintained and the outside perimeter and pool area has lots of greenery and flowers in bloom, very attractive look.
There is open air covered parking below the hotel with 24HR security at the card access entry and elevator area.
BUT, Overall I personally found my 7 night solo stay somewhat disappointing. This is my last night as I write this and I have crushed over a dozen ants crawling on the work desk, I noticed the ant issue in the bathroom a few days ago but not as bad as tonight. I also do not think much of the motion sensor activated Air Conditioning, It only works if you are moving in the room. Nothing like waking up in a sweat a couple of times a night and having to wave your arms to get the A/C to come on, or like now working at the desk. It only takes about half an hour without A/C to reach the preset 78 degree's of the thermostat, but the room does cools down quickly though once the A/C is on. The room does have a Black-Out shade on the window to help with the direct heat of the sun during the day but that also kills the view.
I also found the staff to be polite and courteous but not really friendly. I noticed that there maybe somewhat of a double standard for Gringo's and Mexican nationals. When I checked in I was informed 3 times of the great rate I received and was given a last minute "by the way" there is a complimentary breakfast in the morning, later that day I noticed a Mexican family had just checked in and was given a personal tour of the lobby and pool area and escorted to the elevators, which I had some difficulty finding at first.
A few other things that influenced my opinion...
I had a great turkey club sandwich one day then tried a bacon cheeseburger the next, the bacon was not just under cooked but was raw.
The pool area is a designated smoking area but there are no ash trays so the flower pots, dirty dishes and the pool deck get used instead.
Sunday night there were only a few of us gringo's left here, about 8PM it appeared someone had taken over the remote control for the TV and put it into a menu mode and was going through different functions. Afterwords about half of the 50 or so stations no longer worked, they just showed a menu screen, another guest said same thing happened to them. The channels seen in the lobby, Fox News and CNN were the only English speaking channels still working, all of the Spanish stations were unaffected, I really believe it was sabotage directed at us Gringo's staying here, no Sunday night TV in English. This is my opinion and is based on all of my encounters with the staff, the night staff in particular.
Overall this is a great 4 star corporate business class establishment. If you are looking for a suit and tie, professional type accommodation then this is the place but when I come to Cabo to vacation I'm looking for a fun time with a friendly people and this is not it.
