“Our Home In Paradise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2011

We have visited Hacienda del Mar three times in the last twelve months enjoying a week at each stay. Needless to say, we love it! Our goal is to return for a week every six monts. The property is gorgeous, the staff friendly and attentive. The rooms are well kept and comfortable. Our favorite spot is the center two lounge chairs at the infinity pool looking over the Sea of Cortez. It doesn't get much better! The property is located inside Cabo del Sol, a luxury development of homes, resorts and championship golf. We enjoy the outstanding food choices both on property as well as in both Cabo and San Jose. The only negative to visiting Hacienda del Mar is waking up on your last morning and realizing the visit to paradise is coming to an end. You'll start planning your next visit at that moment. Enjoy!!!

Hacienda del Mar is truly a paradise. I haven't seen a property anywhere in Cabo that was more lush and comfortable. The staff are priceless, sweet and accomodating. The pools are beautiful, especially the infinity pool over looking the Sea of Cortez.

Patiyas is our favorite restarant on site. It is 5 star and it will amaze you.

This will be a unforgettable vacation! Beautiful!!

Room Tip: ocean view

This was our fifth visit to Hacienda del Mar, where we have a "Junior Suite" accommodation, which consists of a bedroom area, lounge and half-kitchen, a full bath with both shower and a Jacuzzi tub. These units are the least expensive, but very adequate. As always, the suites are clean and generally well-maintained, albeit with aging furniture and nary a comfortable chair or lounge on which to sit. The older suites, such as those in Bldg. 37 have shaped concrete lounges with cushions, which do little to provide comfortable seating and ditto for the two chairs in each suite. Lighting is poor, with low-wattage bulbs by the beds and by the lounge, where there is a single lamp. On the positive side, the beds are comfortable and most linens appear to be brand new. As indicated in other reviews, there are now two flat-screen TVs in each suite with an excellent choice of many English and Spanish language channels. Suites have a small balcony, and if you have an "oceanview" room you might get a real view of the ocean, but even a sliver of water in the distance gets classified as oceanview. Most people don't spend a lot of time in the room, so on to the really good parts. Hacidneda del Mar has many outstanding pools around the hotel and resort area. Our favorite is the Delfines Pool on the Sheraton Hotel side of the complex, where there are usually few people, so if you want pool, sun, relaxation and a little privacy this is the place to be. It's also the only pool with a swim-up-to bar (2 for 1 bar specials every day). All other pools are on the oceanfront side of the complex and all are very nice. There are five very good restaurants, including the top-line, expensive Pitahayas and the equally good D'Cortez. We've eaten in all restaurants and the food is always excellent, altho a little on the expensive side. WiFi and Internet service is typically Sheraton and frustrating to some degree. In the lobby area are six terminals and many WiFi hot spots throughout the resort. The kicker, typical for Sheraton, you can have access free unless you want access from your room and then pay about $18/day. Sheraton in general need to get with it. We're in the Internet age and when Comfort Suites have free WiFi in every room, so do the more upscale facilities need to have free WiFi throughout as well. No excuses. Even when free, there's a 30-minute limit per day per room. Exercise Fitness Center is outstanding with many different types of machines, weights, etc., Treadmills have a 30-minute limit (what is Sheraton's 30-minute hang-up, anyway?). There were always treadmills available. The Spa is excellent and drew rave reviews from the Mrs. Maintenance needs improvement in some areas. Examples including pathway lighting, important at night, where in one stretch 4 of 14 lights were burnt out or missing bulbs. The building 36/37 elevator is scary and possibly dangerous. Arriving at a floor is greeted with a very loud and scary "chunk" uneven with the floor to which you are exiting. And, the floor button indicators are out. Both problems existed two years ago and still haven't been fixed. We love the Del Mar and will be back again, all the faults notwithstanding. No place is perfect. Why is this a 4-star review? Because there's no way to indicate a 3.5.

Room Tip: If you want a real oceanview, try and locate in one of the buildings closer to the ocean and not bac...

I didnt see any Brits this far west and south in Cabo San Lucas so it was nice to relax in an environment of international accents.

The resort is totally self contained if that is what you want, with 4 large restaurants and many smaller beach bars. We went in the first week of October and the resort was empty school children and was relaxing with newly married couples on honeymoon and couples with no kids.

There is a shuttle into town on a regular basis idf you want shop/eat/party. The town itself has many bars and restaurants and everywhere is safe and welcoming. Apart from deep sea fishing there is not much else to see or do locally, but this is a drink eat and be merry resort.

Staff at the resort are great and are as helpful as you could wish. The beach is beautiful but the sea is not suitable for swimming except for a few exceptions.

Room Tip: We prefered to be away from the sea front, and take a room at the back of the resort.

2 weeks at the del Mar vacation club in unit 733 was a fantastic vacation .Room was a studio with ocean veiw and a massive deck to lounge on.The rooms are older but very clean with 2 flat screen TVs .The grounds are the best we have seen with very clean infinity pools plus great beach acess but big waves that are not for the faint of heart. Service was great but we
had a rental car a moved around alot.
Mona lisa is the best sunset views Ive ever seen so it a must. Wifi is a pain at the resort and expensive but they do give 30 minutes free. Not good for busness.
We have been told some units are noisy and in rough condition so we stayed in the studion and did not move to the booked 1 bedroom for the second week.On site food is expensive and sports bar is a sushi bar,odd.
Happy hours help

Room Tip: ask for a room closer to the beach as there is a power plant in the middle of the resort

This was our first visit to this resort, and we were impressed. Been to Cabo four times now, and this rates right up there with the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica resort with far more square footage, kitchen, and better location.

We would rate it a 4-star resort by U.S. standards. The surrounding gated community of Cabo del Sol is impressive from the time you exit the main highway.

The resort feels new with nicely appointed condo's, flat screen tv's, and an excellent pool area. We also like the bar that is on the sand right below the main pool area.

The resort food from the Sheraton was pricey and just okay, but the rest of the place was great. We have never seen a weight room at a resort quite like this one! Everything is new and first class.

The only downside as with "every" property in Cabo is the constant time share pressure. Not our favorite thing to endure, but that is present everywhere in Cabo it seems.

We would highly recommend this spot. Great place to relax and escape.

My husband and I were looking for a place to spend our first anniversary. His parents had an RCI timeshare but at a different property. I looked for weeks for a trade that was on the beach and not in the marina, downtown. I gave my husband three choices and he picked here at the HCM. It is the most beautiful property with gorgeous gardens, tiled landscapes and three pools (two Infinity which I had never had the pleasure of enjoying...). The rooms were absolutely gorgeous too, Southwest decorated but not trashy. We originally stayed in a one bedroom suite with a half kitchen. The living room and kitchen was upstairs and our bedroom was downstairs with a jacuzzi tube. We ended up purchasing our own timeshare because we loved it there so much and go upgraded to a two bedroom suite. The staff there was wonderful and all the food was great too. (We only went to Pityhayas and poolside bar food but it was still good). Another thing I liked was that it was in the Corridor area of Cabo and not downtown near the marina. I would highly recommend staying here and we will definately be back next year!
