This place was amazing. The location is great being right on the very swimmable Medina beach. I wouldn't stay around the arc due to the dangerous ocean and distance to downtown. You can walk down the beach to cool places to eat like the office. The room itself is great. With two kids, it's a must to have a suite-like room with a separate bedroom for adults - unless you're celibate. The patio was awesome with a full sized dining table to eat on as well as two very comfortable lounge chairs. If you have kids and/or just like hanging out on the patio at night, spring for a room with a decent view. Great place - I will stay here or on with one of it's two partners next door. Oh yeah, and the timeshare b.s. is worth the breakfast, but don't let them go over the time limit and don't be one of the idiots that actually considers buying one.

My family of four took our first trip to Cabo and had a great time. We booked the one bedroom villa suite-European plan which was more than enough space, both inside and the patio. The property itself is beautiful, immaculately maintained, and right on a swimmable section of the beach. You can walk on the beach to the marina/downtown in 20-25 minutes, or stop at any number of casual restaurants/bars on the beach along the way. A cab ride to/from downtown is $7-8, plus tip. We stayed five days and did not get bored. There is plenty to do around the property. The pool is exceptional, as was the service from the entire staff from the front desk to the maids. We were a bit concerned about time share sales pressure based on previous reviews. We did get two or three calls to our room after checking in but did not respond and were left alone after the second day. However, there is a constant parade of time share sales people and potential buyers wandering around the property all day-every day. Not really sure why you would want a time share when you can pretty much just book a room whenever you want anyway-without the long term obligation.

Room Tip: I think any room other than a ground floor room will give you a nice view of both the pool and at least partial ocean.

Villa Del Arco is the best........you can not beat the location with many options available right in front of the hotel, such as jet skis, parasailing and vendors with interesting gift options. The staff is friendly and helpful, we can always get wonderful recommendations for activities or other restaurant options. The food on site offers a wide variety of options and is perfect to either start your day, have a bite by the pool or have a lovely dinner to wind down....My daughter and I are going back 9/18 and looking forward to another great vacation. Cheers to Villa Del Arco!

Holli Scott

Room Tip: The rooms have good views but if you can get one closest to the beach with the patio overlooking the ocean it is the best.........Washers/dryers and great kitchens in the 1 bedrooms as well as whirlpool deep tubs.

My husband and I stayed at Del Arco the first week of Aug. His brother own a timeshare there. First off, they will do ANYTHING they can to get you into one of their timeshare presentations. They are extremely pushy and will offer 15%off everything, free drinks ect.. DO NOT GO trust me. They still called us everyday to push us so finally I unplugged the phone.The resort itself is gorgeous! The sand however is very very rough and will cut your feet if you walk on it barefoot a bunch so bring water shoes. The elevator was broken (sound like from past review it has been broken for over a month) and I heard them lie to a guy who asked the front desk that it was from the recent rain (we had been there all week and it was broke.) If you were on any high levels... good luck. My brother in law who owns the timeshare said don't do the all inclusive and that isn't not worth it. So, we went to the Costco and bought all the alcohol and food we needed (since we had a full kitchen.) We saved a lot of money doing it this way. I heard from people who did do the all inclusive that it takes like 40 min to get another drink, slow food service, ect.. you had to get on a wait list to get into the restaurants. Even the food was just OK. Much better and cheaper food in town. Poncho's is AWESOME! So good!! Eat in town and skip the report. The room was very very clean but we had worn towels that looked very used. Our maid didn't even clean our room one day but when she did it looked great. So overall is was a BLAST but I wasn't impressed with the food or service at all! I am glad we stayed here and would stay here again. But, plan to wait forever to check in, out, or if you need any service at all. Also the fishing here is AMAZING!!! We went Marlin fishing and caught 3. We didn't book through the resort just walk down to the marina and you can negotiate way better deals.
