We stayed 5 nights at the Villa Del Arco as paying guests, non inclusive during the first week of December. The resort looks huge when you first arrive but it is 3 resorts joined together. The Lobby was gorgeous and very inviting, with huge bouquets of fresh flowers. Check in was quick and efficient, but they did direct us to the inevitable concierge who was very helpful in orientating us to the resort and answered alot of questions about transportation options. Before we knew it we were marked down to attend a time share presentation the next morning. Smooth. We decided later not to go and forfeited 200 pesos table reservation deposit required for the "free breakfast."
Our deluxe room had just a mini bar fridge and 2-burner stove. The room was quite big, tiled throughout and a decent balcony overlooking the garden and pool. The king bed was firm but comfortable, pillows were plump and there were extras in the closet. The bathroom was quite large with a tub and shower.
When we opened up the door to the TV cabinet, it fell off the hinge. When I closed the drapes later that evening the pull rod came right off. When we went to bed we were disturbed by the constant whooshing noise of the mini fridge. The only way to disquise it was to turn the AC on. Other than those minor things the suite was very comfortable.
The hotel grounds were lovely and very well maintained. Alot of staff were around cleaning and sweeping. The pool was two levels with 2 hot tubs and a kids section. The pirate ship restaurant "Buccanero" was a nice feature. The Japanese and Mediterranean restaurants were adjacent to the pool and lounge with wonderful views of Land's End and Cabo. The beach was easy to get to with plenty of chairs and umbrellas. At the seashore the waves were somewhat intimidating and there was a quick drop off. Red flags were up but a few people were swimming anyway. Beach vendors trudged by with their wares but they were not too intrusive.
The hotel is about a mile away from the center of Cabo San Lucas and it's easy to catch a "Collectivo," a small white school bus that will take you to Walmart and onward into town for 7 pesos, about 70 cents.
I was very comfortable at this resort with its easy access and convenient lay out. I dislike alot of walking. Guests can freely enjoy the ammenities of the other 2 Villas. There's even a San Fransisco-style trolley that drops you off at their mini market near the Villa Del Palmar.
