I have just returned from a 3 night stay at this property. You know you have had a great vacation when you are figuring out when you can return.
I have stayed at some pretty exclusive luxury $$$$ resorts in Cabo & San Jose but you can't top or beat what we got for our $$ here.
The hotel is located at a new marina in Puerto Los Cabos. It is a dirt road leading up to the hotel. I paid extra for transzip to pick us up at the airport. They were waiting for me outside of the terminal has promised with my name nice and bold - no confusion!
Upon checking in, I realized that this is a truly mexican owned and run property. They have only been open for a couple of months and with all new hotels - some kinks to work out but they bent over backwards for us. I paid for a king jacuzzi balcony room but due to low census they upgraded us to a LARGE suite. Our room was posh, modern and romantic. Our suite had two rooms, with a large balcony that faced the marina & ocean. We also had the daily breakfast included - I recommend this. Yes, service is on the slower side but who's in a rush on vacation. Our breakfast was delicious everyday - try to chile releno - I ordered this everyday YUM!
Also, our suite had a coffee machine and I got to enjoy coffee out on my balcony while the man slept in a little - so peaceful.
We always do spa on vacation, so we both had an 80 minute massage at 50% off regular prices - what?! We couldn't believe how affordable the spa services are!
They have 2 pools, one off the spa on the ground level and a roof top pool. The roof top pool is so decadent - we spent some serious time up there - pool service was great.
I think one of the greatest points of this hotel is LOCATION. You are off the beaten path but you can walk to so many activities, bars...
There is a bar down the street, "the drunken sailor" - we went everyday for lunch for coronas and fish tacos.
Another don't miss activity is the bike tour. You can rent bikes from the hotel and there is a designated bike path that you will spend all day sightseeing. There is a bar/restaurant on this tour (The Container Restaurant) that you can stop and have lunch at also - so cute. Don't miss the cactus gardens - millions of plants. There is also a fun beach club across the marina that is part of the hotel has well - awesome!!
I'm so afraid that this place will become so popular that the prices will go up but they deserved a great review for the wonderful time we enjoyed!
Oh yeah, the best thing about this hotel is no kids under 16 allowed! This means a lot if you want quiet & relaxing - which is what we were looking for.
