“no substance”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

This place is highly overrated. Looks like a concrete bunker. Service is so so and not at all professional waiters wearing bomber jackets do not impress! Their wine list will fleece you and the food is sub par. We had the tuna which was overcooked and tasted like straw. It was difficult to get the waiters attention and no one bothered to relight the gas heater near us on the patio I don't think they cared. For the price do yourself a favour and dine elsewhere!

“Dine Overlooking Marina”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

After a day fishing, we sat outside and had the best hamburger and pina colada! The sun was out, the staff friendly & attentive, relaxing atmosphere, and food & drink delicious. Even the bathroom was stylish and clean. Enjoy!

“Our best breakfast, lunch and dinner in Cabo”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

El Ganzo it is an amazing hotel situated in the beautiful San Jose Del Cabo BCS . My husband and i´ve had our Christmas dinner at the"Downstairs" Restaurant and it was wonderful and so tasty, really nice dinner, the Chef is so creative, the bread its home made so its really good bread. Also sundays they have a really good brunch. At the "Gachoo" (another restaurant from el Ganzo) you can taste the best sushi with the best view and the best drinks, they have happy hour in every restaurant so you can enjoy even better your holidays or vacations. The beach club it´s just "magnifique" it has a really good menu so you can spend all your day and relaxing time.... The service it was excellent the waiters were so kind and very servicial. I truly recommend this hotel and their restaurants for a good family vacations.

Our best breakfast, lunch and dinner in Cabo.

“This is a joke... Named " the Goose" you'll see why.”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

This place is a joke. It has to be. On a dust ,dirty, dirt road, far from everything, at the backside of the harbor is this white goose ( Ganzo means goose in Spanish ) monolith of a hotel. Ride a bicycle for a mile to get a bite to eat other than a taco joint and you've enjoyed all there is to offer. A little boat will bring you to a beach you can't swim at but if you want fun stay somewhere else. Known as ," the place Charly Sheen stayed for New Years" it is hurting seriously for notoriety. IKEA furnishing and hugely overpriced little rooms you really have to believe WC Fields was right," there's a sucker born every minute".
