“Do not stay if you have friends outside of resort!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2012

I will not stay at this place again! First of all, they insisted on taking our luggage up to our room, when we told them several times that we could easily take it ourselves. Short from making a scene we allowed them to take our luggage. Upon arrival, I noticed how tightly packed our luggage was on their cart, and hoped that none of us didn't have any breakables. Low and behold, we heard something break when bellboy was taking our luggage of the cart. He had pulled on the handle that is meant to extend out when you are rolling the luggage. He pulled so much that he yanked the handle off the telescoping arms. He stated that he had worked there 5 years and that that had never happened. He said that he would pay for it, but I realized that it would easily have cost him several days pay. Secondly, there were five of us in our group that decided to go to Cabo, but only had 2 rooms available, and because one of our friends already had a timeshare walking distance away he decided to stay at his hotel. When he came to visit us, security stopped him at the gate and asked if he stayed there and if he did not he could not enter the premises, and could only wait in waiting room until we came down. Even then he was not allowed to come to our room!!!!! I have never heard of this type of Scam!! When I asked why he could not come up, they stated that it was because of "security issues". We were willing to give them a copy of his license and passport so that they could have ID'd him, but that was not enough. What was enough was that we pay $80.00 per day and that would satisfy him being able to come in and see us in our room!!! This was a timeshare we could have easily added him in as a guest to this resort prior to arriving, but we did not for see the greed that was displayed by this hotel. Again, if you are meeting friends from other resorts, Do NOT stay here!!! We struggled all five days with this ongoing dilemma.

The room, grounds, pool were very nice. The experience on site was made special by Rodrigo, Marysol, Giovanni, and Jesus at concierge. The all-inclusive package (dining at their affiliated restaurants right at the marina had several drawbacks: 1. special limited menu (although food was pretty good at most of them), 2. Restaurants INSIST ON YOU WEARING THE WRISTBAND or they will not serve you (quite annoying to wear for an entire week of outdoor activities - fishing, swimming, etc.). They need to modernize and issue a card, like the room key card which one can just show at the restaurant.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a Marina View, not a pool view

We had a fantastic family trip to Marina Fiesta over Thanksgiving break. Loved the location, pool and walk to Madano Beach, walk to dolphin and shops/restaurants all right there steps away from the resort. Nice rooms, quiet, clean, be prepared for the beach vendors when on Madano unless you are down far enough . Snorkeling, jet skiing, boat rides, all rentable on the beach and able to bargain with them. I liked the outdoor gym on the rooftop overlooking the marina and beach. about 40 minutes from the airport. Highly recommend! Not many kids activities other than swimming at the resort but many on the beach to do all together.

I would not use this hotel again. What they advertize and what you get a different story. We were suppose to get marina or pool view, well we got a back alley view!! There was suppose to be activities for kids, that didn't happen!! The food was average except for the a la carte was realy good. The only restaurant that I would not recomend on there a la carte menu is Tequia Museum. Service was horrible and the food was just as bad!! The rooms were suppose to be luxury suites, well I have seen luxury and it wasn't even close to it.....The concierge was not helpfull at all. He made it seem like a horrible chore every time we ask him for something!! There was a play area for our grand son but was not safe at all. The pool area was ok but not enough seats for the amount of people that was staying at the hotel. There was another pool area but only had sun till lunch time and absolutly no service there what so ever(all inclusive remember)....anyway I could keep going on and on about all the negatives but all in all the luxury they are advertising is a joke.....like I said earlier not what you get at all!!!!

We just came back from our 4th time in Cabo and this was our first stay at this hotel. We were a little hesitant because we read some not great reveiws, along with some really good reviews. We were very happy with this hotel. Our room was originally supposed to be on the 1st floor which we did not want so they put us on the 6th floor. The room was remodeled and very nice with a beautiful glass shower. The food was pretty good and we had no issues with anything. Everyone was very nice and helpful. The location was perfect. This was the 4th time in Cabo and this was the best location. Walking distance to everything and a great view of the Marina. I would definitely recommend staying here all-inclusive. Great deal for your money.

We went down the first week in November and stayed seven nights. We took advantage of a Living Social deal that was offered for the all-inclusive option. This was our first time to Cabo and based on our experiences here, will definitely be back. The location of the hotel is ideal for those who like to be in the middle of everything. The room was cozy and the bathroom was huge!! The resturants included in the package offered a wide variety dishes and were excellent. Our favorite hangout was definitely the pool. The drinks were great and the service was excellent. Joaquin, Mario and Dugo never left us with an empty glass!! I can not say enough about these guys, they made the trip!

Outings included Cabo Adventure Zip Lining which was an exceptional excursion. It had a great mix of physical activities on top of great zip lines...rock climbing and repelling to name a few. We did the Fiesta Sunset cruise around the arch. Beautiful photo opportunities!! Some of the greatest scenery we have ever seen. Our best excursion had to be the combo ATV/horseback riding on Migrino Beach. We took our ATV's as fast as they would go on the beach and the horses were well trained and well kept for. Just a phenomonenal experience.

We will be back!!

Room Tip: you must ask for a marina view and a remodeled room.

We stayed a week at Marina fiesta, it was awesome. Food is excellent, rooms are very nice, service is awesome. Our server Joaquin was the best, he was always there to provide whatever we needed and was very attentive to us. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Go with the one bedroom, a little bigger and has a full kitchen.
