I travelled here with my hubby .... January 18 - 25th. I won it through our local radio station! What a great place to win a trip!!! So much variety to see and do and just relax.
This resort was awesome. Smaller intimate resort, very easy to find your way around.
At Check In...welcome drinks... after a long day...someone took our luggage and showed us to our room. Nice touch.
Loved the couches/sunbeds all around the resort as well as on the beach. Always able to find shade or sun and never had a problem finding a lounger. No chair hogs here. All the resort areas were new and beautiful.
Only about 3 vendors on our beach, were not a bother at all.
Beautiful very long beach , we walked it every morning. Walk about 20 minutes down one end and you will come upon Zippers Restaurant, and a cold corona waiting for you. Loved it, popular spot.
It is a shame though that this beautiful beach is basically unswimmable due to undertows... if you keep walking the beach there is areas where people do enter the water with caution...which we did.
Pools were awesome, heated... which was very nice, and all pools had swim up bars
Loved the pool on the upper level, where you could be having a drink and watching whales, this is also the quieter pool, when you are wanting that.
The 2 other main pools on lower level had fun entertainment going on during some times of the day.
Buffet was excellent..loved all the food, no sickness what so ever!
Snack bar near main pools had really yummy burgers nachos mozza sticks hotdogs pizza tacos wings...yummy!!!
Main center bar/entertainment area had a fire pit and heat lamps all around, with comfy round couches, very nice to sit by at night while watching the variety of entertainment.
One night they had a rock band, it was great, a real party.
Room was super nice, plush new beds, tons of plush pillows and duvet... never had that luxury at any other resort.
And towels replenished constantly and again plush and soft. Free safe in room and plenty of space and closets/drawers. Free wi-fi ... and I had no problem accessing it during my stay.
Room cleaned regularly every day, fridge stocked, our maid was very nice, we had a main floor with patio... steps from the main entertainment/bar and the pools, perfect!
1 a la carte, went for welcome and farewell party with our group..I liked the buffet food better but just my opinion...many enjoyed the food at a la carte.
All drinks were great and loved their beer, dark or light.
Was told over and over again how very safe Los Cabos is...we walked a few nights after dark down the strip past all the resorts and stumbled upon nice cafes/bars/restaurants/shops...enjoyed getting out there exploring..never felt comfortable with just the 2 of us doing that anywhere else we have travelled.
Resort is very close to San Jose del Cabo... bus or cab...very cheap or about half hour walk in ... we went a few times...nice little town...nice souvenir shops...and bars/restaurants galore...we went to Shooters Sports Bar there...loved it...even went in town a second time and went again...sit at the bar ... you will get to know the owners..Canadian family...very nice people...we loved this place...and cheap cheap beer/food....music and tv's all over for sport watching...highly recommend going there ... fun times!
Can cab or bus into Cabos San Lucas...again we went a few times...a must place to visit ... more busy than San Jose...lots to see and do ... have to visit Cabo Wabo Cantina while there and take advantage of all the excursions out of the Marina.
Lover's Beach ... a must do... so beautiful for swimming as well as the famous Arch...pics do it no justice...see it in person.
Take advantage of free admission for Royal Decameron guests to watch dolphins at the Dolphin Discovery right across street from resort.
Best touch of all ... the night we were all in the lobby waiting to leave by bus to airport..late flight....entertainment staff guys came around giving some of us hugs goodbye, joking with each of us, very nice touch, so sincere, stands out with me ... thank you to them...they were the best.... I have never experienced that at any other resort ... made a hard time leaving a little easier!
I agree this is a solid 4 star and I would even give it a 4.5/5 star! Will definitely do a repeat of this vacation again in the future.
