We read the reviews of this hotel beforehand and knew what to expect -- what to request and who/what to avoid, so I have to say we had an excellent stay here. We used Marriott points and requested a quiet room, but I still called the hotel directly the day before and spoke with Maggie who was very professional, polite and accommodating.
We were scheduled to arrive before noon, and had asked for an early check-in. Our room #416 was ready when we arrived. The view from the window looked out over the pool area and we could see the ocean in the distance. Other reviews are correct, the double rooms are larger. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean.
The "concierge/time share lady" did ask us to stop and see her for our free beach passes, but we knew to avoid her and just put her off once or twice and she didn't bother us for the rest of our stay. We walked by the karaoke bar/restaurant next door every day and they were still going strong on Sunday night when we got back to the hotel around 2:30 am, so I can imagine you would have a difficult time sleeping if your room faced it. We did not hear any outside noises from our room and slept well until the sun came up. Even with the black-out curtains, it still seemed to peek through and wake me up.
Breakfast included eggs, refried beans, pastries, yogurt, fruit, toast, cereal, oatmeal, juices and coffee. A couple mornings they had what looked like a toasted ham and cheese sandwich, and one morning served "turkey sausage" that did look like hot dogs grilled and cut into small pieces. But hey, it was free and gave us a good start.
The location is on the main road into downtown Cabo, close to the beach and marina. We walked everywhere we went, even later at night and were not too concerned. We did get asked for money a couple times late at night on our way home, but never felt threatened.
We knew to ask about the beach passes for purchase to Casa Dorada, a five-star resort directly on the beach within walking distance of our hotel. Maggie called each morning to assure they had space, and we paid $25 each. This gave us passes to the Casa Dorada pool and beach area, and a $20 each credit for food and drinks, plenty to take care of us for the day including lunch. The beach area is roped off and the vendors are not allowed to enter here, also a nice bonus. If you want to get a specific chair by the pool or one of the beach beds though, get here early.
The Fairfield Inn front desk personnel were always available to assist us with a smile; they were happy to answer questions and made calls for us to confirm our transportation. The only minor thing I would share is that it looked like the maids were refilling the shampoo and conditioner bottles provided in the bathrooms. The labels looked like they had been wet and dried, and the contents were different colors from one bottle to the next. Other than that, everything was clean, well-maintained and we would not hesitate to stay here again, especially with the great rates.
