“Highly recommend the Zoetry in San Jose del Cabo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

Just spent a fantastic, relaxing week at the Zoetry in San Jose del Cabo. It is the perfect adult getaway for people who want great food, privacy, attentive service and luxury accomodations.
There are very few rooms at this resort, with each building separated from the other so it is very quiet. Each building has its own pool (there were at least 6 pools) and view of the beautiful Sea of Cortez.
I had never been to an all inclusive resort before and was delightfully surprised that you ordered off of the menu, and everything was prepared fresh to order. No buffets, ever. The food was very fresh, gourmet preparations. The service was attentive and the wait staff knew you by name and your preferences by the second day. Drinks were all top shelf. The grounds were impecable, beautifully maintained. Spa services were excellent and easy to acquire reservations. There was never any waiting to be seated in any restaurant.
The rooms were very clean. Maid service, three times a day, 24 hour room service and a fully stocked fridge.
Located within the hotel district between Cabo San Lucas and Cabo San Jose, it is only 15 minutes to either city.

This is a top tier luxury resort that does not disappoint.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a view of the ocean... you don't need to worry about being placed in a sub st...

My husband & I were just married this week at Zoetry. We had a private wedding - just the two of us. Our stay at Zoetry was exactly what we were looking for. The hotel is small (big plus), the rooms were nice, the food was healthy & delicious (a complete shocker for an all-inclusive resort), & the staff was wonderful. The only minor change we think would benefit the resort would be an update to the gym. Aside from that, we had an amazing time & will definitely go back.

My husband and I just returned from our 6 day stay at the Zoetry. I feel as if I am a picky person and there was NOTHING to complain about at the Zoetry. This was the most beautiful and tranquil place I have ever been to. The grounds are spotless and truly breathtaking.
When we arrived, we were greeted with a cool towel, scented with a delicious white tea fragrance (this scent became addicting for us) and a delicious, ice cold chamomile tea. There was no wait for our room so we immediately were able to get into our bathing suits and begin our vacation!
It is an absolute must to spend your days at the pool down by the ocean. We never had any trouble getting a seat. Edgar, the pool manager will treat you like a KING! Everyday he made sure we were comfortable and he educated us with different mexican treats every afternoon such as delicious mexican ice pops and fresh fruits and vegetables. Alberto, is an angel sent from above who was the kindest, most helpful waiter we have ever encountered. Phillipe was also amazing to my husband and I bringing us anything we wanted such as cigars for my husband. Last but not least, Estefan, the bartender at the Maquey Bar. We looked forward to our nightly conversations with you everynight. We will truly miss all 4 of you from the bottom of our hearts. Thank you for an amazing week in paradise! Hope to see you again soon!

Loren and Frank Hackett

PS- Eat on the beach every night for dinner! It is not everyday you can eat on a perfectly still beach with an amazing bonfire and a huge glass of wine. It was by far our favorite!

We stayed at Zoetry from 4/2 - 4/9. It was exactly what we were hoping for and expecting. We wanted an all-inclusive in Mexico that was not going to be too crowded and predominantly adult focused. We weren't interested in excursions, just wanted to relax. We paid just under $700 per night (AAA rate) for a Jr. Oceanview Suite. I think the price was high due to Holy Week/spring break/season. Rates right now are closer to $500/night.

When we arrived we were placed in building 17, not the main building. We asked for the main building at check-in, but no rooms there were available. In hindsight, we preferred the room we were in since there were a number of families who used the timeshares that were in the main pool at an early hour. We had a perfect ocean view obstructed by only 2 palm trees and could hear the waves crashing as long as the balcony door was open. King bed was great, but soft. There is also a noticeable distinction between the timeshare folk and the all-inclusive folk.

Food-wise, we didn't expect 5 star quality. We weren't disappointed by the food either. Meat quality is fine at the restaurants but may not be the cuts one is used to in the States. Service was always quick and we did not feel rushed at any time. Breakfast was always terrific. No complaints about lunch and dinner. I had the rib-eye and filet a few nights for dinner at the beach restaurant and, aside from being a bit fatty, they were cooked well and tasted fine. My wife typically had chicken, shrimp or salad. I really miss the guacamole though...and the various juices that they had at breakfast.

Service was terrific. We ate via room service about half the time we were there. Regardless of time of day, the service was prompt. Yaser was especially helpful and would often bring a bottle of wine to our room at night after seeing us at dinner. Gaudencio and Yuliana at the lower pool were also fantastic. We observed the staff kindly informing timeshare guests about the rules of the resort several times during our stay. The staff stayed entirely professional, even in the midst of being berated by those guests.

Alcohol available included: Corona and Pacifico for beer, Absolut and Stoli for vodka, Tanqueray for gin, Jack Daniels and Johnny Walker Red and Black, Herradura and Don Julio for tequila, Bacardi for rum. I know I am missing a bunch, but that is what I can remember.

We had read various reviews on tipping. We tipped on a few occasions but did not notice an appreciation in service. Maybe because it was always great.

We used the workout room 4 times during the stay. 2 treadmills, 2 stairmills, 2 bikes, dumbbell rack, 3-4 leg machines and a universal machine. A bit older equipment, but if you know what you are doing, you can get done what you need to. No complaints.

Didn't use the spa while there. We were relaxed enough already.

There was no rush for beach chairs either. Regardless if we went to the pool at 9 AM or 2 PM, there were always plenty available.

We did walk over to Dreams once. Way too crowded. Buffet food looked bad. Very noisy with all the kids/music. There was nowhere to sit either. It definitely looked and felt activity/excursion oriented as well, similar to a cruise. We didn't stay to eat at any of the restaurants. After walking through the property once, we were so thankful to be able to go back to Zoetry and have a drink with a plate of nachos. In a beach chair. On the beach. Quietly.

All in all, we will probably be back to Zoetry in the future. Especially if prices are $500/night/couple for all-inclusive. Splurge on the private car from cabosanlucastours.net to get you from the airport. Completely worth the $150 round trip.

All in all, if you have no desire to go into either Cabo San Lucas or San Jose del Cabo, then this is a great choice. Having been to Cabo 3 times before, I know that there are really good restaurants off-site. However, the food at Zoetry was more than sufficient for what my wife and I wanted. This resort totally deserves the tripadvisor award for best relaxation. Loved it.

Room Tip: All rooms seems to have a great ocean view. Shoot for top floor of whatever building you are in.

If you are looking for a honeymoon retreat look no further. I did a ton of research online as you are doing and decided on Zoetry. I have never made a better decision. The attention to detail is second to none and the service is incredible. As you enter the main building the view of the Sea of Cortez and the immacuately manicured landscaping immediately take your breath away. Check in was a breeze and it was off to the ocean view master suite. The room was as advertised with a ton of room and beautifully decorated. The same view waits to greet you from anywhere in the room. The food and drinks are exquisite and do not resemble what you would expect at an all inclusive resort. All of the waitstaff are extremely attentive and have great attitudes. Zacarias and Ismael really helped make our trip as great as it was. You can't go wrong at any restaurant or bar however we spent most of our time at the main pool bar. We did not experience a bad meal until we ventured outside of the resort. Don't expect nightlife as this resort is about relaxation and privacy. If you need nightlife it's a short walk next door to dreams. As you step into dreams you will realize Zoetry was the right choice. I highly recommend Zoetry to anyone who wants a serene retreat with incredible scenery and extremely attentive service, a very romantic place for couples.

This one is a little complex; the resort is lovely, but not really 5-star. The hotel (main building) has the nicest rooms. There are lots of condos around the hotel. talk about quiet.....rest, sun, relax. Service is very good, but agin, off the mark from true 5-star. our room had a weird open plan, with no true door to the toilet; so forget privacy....you have to chase your sweetie out to the porch when you do your business; I got tired of the lack of privacy. However, the room was truly beautiful. the food was excellent, with many healthy choices and calorie/nutrition breakdown, so it was easy to not gain weight. But, the food is limited, and you do tire of it after few days. We wandered over to Dreams next door and did not like that vegas-style property; it was dirty and cheap; the food there looked abysmal. For a 700$ per couple fee.. on top of our time share trade, it turned out to be just way too expensive and not a great deal. If you want to sty there for cheaper, go to VRBO and rent by the week for about 250$ per night, of course no food included. Overpriced, but it realyt was a very nice escape.

Room Tip: The suites were nice for 100$ per room extra, but they were full.

Perfect hotel for a romantic week long getaway. Food was outstanding, service was agreeable enough, and the grounds were immaculate. The spa was absolutely fantastic. A must stay at kind of resort.
