Getting here is the first challenge, you have to get through the airport filled with mean spirited aggressive time share sales people who try to trick you into riding with them. Ignore them and walk straight outside until you see a line of shuttle busses and go directly to them, they go to whatever hotel you want and it costs $15 per person, they like US Dollars, and you can pay cash. No need to book a shuttle ahead of time, there are loads of them waiting outside as long as there are flights.
First let me say, the whole town of Cabo has a sewer problem so you can smell sewage depending on which way the wind is blowing, but that is all over unless you get up high on a hill . Next time we come we will stay in San Jose, however, we booked with Easy Click Travel and it was nearly $10 per night less expensive (Searched Kayak to find lowest price). You do not get the choice of beds, the ONLY rooms they have are two double beds in each room. We wanted a queen or king bed, but found out it was not an option.
The rooms are very clean and spacious. You can ask for a dish pack at the desk and walk about 15 minutes over to Walmart (on the main highway heading back toward the airport) and get groceries. Beware of the time share sales people at Walmart, they act like they want to help you find things and really just want to be pushy sales people. (The cab ride back to the hotel was $5) So, you can cook in your room and the maid service does a nice job cleaning the room, changing sheets each day even.
The pool is open to the parking lot so not much privacy. The walls are paper thin, and it is very noisy, you can hear every word the neighbors say and their TV. There are about 5 channels that have English on them, but they are old sitcoms, and some movies and CNN and the BBC news. The Internet (wireless) works pretty well from our room, but our friends have struggled the whole time.
The time share push extended all the way to our hotel, there was some guy in the office named Victor, we thought it was the manager, and finally figured out he was a time share sales guy, and this guy is persistant. It is annoying, the girls at the desk assisted him in his pushiness. Everywhere we went in Cabo people were pushing us to come and eat in their restaurant, or come in to their shop to buy something, it is exhausting! If we come again we will most definately stay in San Jose where it is more laid back, no late night hoopla partying and no aggressive sales people.
For the younger people who want to party, it is 4 long blocks to the Marina where all the hoopla takes place. This hotel is a great place for the money, We rented a car for three days, it cost us $175 for three days, the insurance was $100 of that! Parking and security at this hotel are really good. It all goes back to what you are paying, this is no luxury hotel, it is great for people on a budget, you take the good with the bad, and for what you pay, this is a good value.
