This place was like a dressed up truck stop that was undergoing construction. The first - and most expensive - room we were in had nice tile work and towels. However the traffic was so loud even earplugs didn't help. (Funny how the most expensive rooms are closest to the truck route.) We could hear people talking in the next room; the walls were like paper. Construction began next door to our room at 8am and could be heard from every corner of the hotel. When making the reservation I had specifically asked whether or not there would be any construction and was told "no". Surprise! It was like the travelocity ad where the couple checks into their room and couldn't carry on a conversation. They did give us 50% off the rack rate for the inconvenience of our first night's room but the new room they gave us the second night of our stay had a pervasive musty smell. The lack of professionalism by Hector was appalling; Jesus was much better to deal with. Thank God my husband speaks Spanish!
We did find a nice place to stay just down the road: Hoteles Marquis - [-]
Note: What you should know about Cabo is that there is a very high "gringo" tax. For instance, one pitcher of regular margaritas at the popular beachfront cafe, "The Office" costs $50. Breakfast for two cost $50 at the Cabo Surf Hotel. Dinner at most restaurants cost about $200 per couple, without heavy drinks. Don't forget your wallet in this town! You have to pay up to enjoy yourself without even living that large.
