If you are a first time traveler to Cabo San Lucas then you may not want to stay at Misiones. You probably want to stay on Medano Beach in a resort that is near the town.
That being said, Misiones may have the most spectacular view of the arch in Cabo.
We sat out on the balcony every night to watch the sun set and stare at the arch.
About 10 years ago we bought a timeshare at Misiones in the new building. Unfortunately Misiones ran into problems and only now are they finishing and furnishing the new part of the building. So, we had to stay in the old section. After reading all the reviews I was skeptical, but upon our arrival I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were clean, but sparse and the furniture was over 10 years old but not horrible. We definitely felt comfortable sitting on the sofa and chairs. The bathroom needs some help. We only had housekeeping service twice so we had to hang up our towels to dry. There were no hooks in the bathroom to hang up the towels. The shower curtain was annoying. It was way too thin and flew into us when we showered. They gave us two tv's. One worked and had only 2 channels. The resort had no restaurant. The new pool is finished and really pretty. Pepe opened the bar and barbecue on the weekend. I heard this will become a regular occurrence now. Parking is tight but you you probably won't enjoy yourselves without renting a car.
I've just listed a ton of reasons not to stay at this resort. However, changes are being made. In the next few weeks they are supposed to be opening the new part of the building. If they can upgrade the amenities and offer some kind of restaurant, this could become a very nice place to stay. Although one beach on the south side is only for surfers Misiones does own a small stretch of that beach. They could fix it up for sunbathing and dunking. On the other side of the resort there is a swimming beach where people go to swim and snorkel. It's down a LONG flight of stairs at the bottom of the resort. There are a couple of beautiful swimming beaches very close to Misiones.
If you want to ask questions, just message me for more info. I'll be glad to go into more detail.
