We loved our stay at Hotel El Ganzo. From the quiet location (on a dirt road near the marina at Puertos Los Cabos) to the friendly and attentive staff to the beautiful decor and design of the rooftop pool and lobby areas, it is a place of cool, hip beauty. Interior design reminds me of "rustic hipster chic." It is not overdone luxury. It is not aggressive sales pitches. It is a place to enjoy yourself w/o the constant urgings of sycophantic staff. If you never want to explore outside the hotel, it's a perfect place to sit all day and enjoy the pool and generous lounging areas. Live music, a well-equipped gym and a spa/salon provide additional activities. It's only 1.5 years old and already, it's poised for take-off. Make your reservations before it gets too popular. The only down side was the food in the Downstairs Restaurant (the main restaurant). It just did not live up to the same quality as the rest of the hotel but hopefully, that'll improve. It was very expensive, too. However, the Sunday brunch was good ($20/person). El Ganzo also owns the Beach Club across the marina (a short boat ride away - they provide for free) and the food and service there was not good but the beach is beautiful. But the food at The Container Restaurant (which they also own) was consistently good and reasonably-priced. The shrimp fajitas were delicious! Also, wonderful toiletries and well-stocked vanity kits (toothbrushes/toothpaste, shaving kits, etc.) but bring your own body lotion as I was a bit mystified by the one they provided (an odd smell, a bit too greasy/oily). Live music is nice, too. Overall, El Ganzo is a wonderful place. Book soon before it gets too popular!
