Booked into this place because we got our rooms free for listening to a timeshare presentation. Ordinarily I am not a fan of resort hotels, especially in Mexico, since they seem designed to provide a vacation experience for people who are timid about setting foot into actual Mexico.
I’ll get the good points of this hotel out of the way first. The rooms are big, comfortable, and the beds have so many pillows and bolsters on them that you have to sweep most of them onto the floor in order to actually lay horizontally on the bed surface. The only flaw in our room was that the ocean view patio door was so heavy that my fiancée, who was recovering from surgery, could not budge it, making me into a full-time doorman.
The pools are huge and balmy; the beach fronting the hotel is wide and gorgeous enough for a Corona commercial, although the shore break and the rip currents, which are typical of Cabo beaches, means you don’t want your small children frolicking alone on these sands. The service is impeccable and there’s no need to speak a word of Spanish to get anything you want.
But there is a price to pay. You can’t escape the feeling of being gently fleeced every time you turn around in this hotel. There is no in-room coffee and Internet costs ten dollars a day. By the time I flipped on my computer and ordered coffee from room service I was out twenty bucks. Lunch for two with non-alcoholic drinks was fifty-seven dollars American, and consisted of three soft tacos and three small enchiladas. Very tasty, but barely enough to tide you over until dinner. A bottle of beer at one pool bar was 75 pesos; at the other, they had the same beer on draft for 59 pesos. A typical Mexican hotel bar charges 20 to 35 pesos for this particular beverage. For more sophisticated drinks, expect to pay the same price as you would at a major-league sports event.
The hotel is not convenient to either central San Jose del Cabo or Cabo itself. We did have a car and escaped into town for several of our meals, but if you don’t have wheels, expect the worst when your final bill is totaled up. A beautiful hotel, but for the price, you might as well go to at least Hawaii, if not the Riviera.
