By reading a ton of trip advisor reviews before I went on my trip - my vacation went off flawlessly. I thought the resort was well maintained, and very nice, with a great staff. I read a lot about the pools being too cold - but while the plunge pool on our balcony was too cold to use, the other pools were fine. A little bracing when your sun baked skin first hits the water, but otherwise fine. Maybe time of year helps?
I liked the dark entrance with the statues and drums - but sadly could not get a good picture of it. We had a nice room (yes, hard beds as described by others) with a convenient kitchenette. We went to the Mega store on day of arrival and purchased all our groceries. We ate 90% of our meals in our room, and purchased nothing from the hotel. When we checked out, our bill was $18 (phone calls and room taxes). We had no problem with time share sales at the resort - I know they called our room a couple of times and left messages, but we never were approached in person. They may have read all the reviews and corrected the problem - at least I have no complaints. We took the bus to Cabo - it was about $2.30 per person each way, and took between 25-40 minutes depending on roadwork. Easy and cost effective. The marina in Cabo is where the time share sales people drove me crazy! We had a couple of drinks at Cabo Wabo - fun place, but expensive. I had a Wabojito - it was delicious, but small and $9 (109 pesos). It was an easy walk to the town of San Jose del Cabo - lots of little bars and restaurants. Felt like a safe environment - I never experienced any hostil/bad vibes during my vacation.
One tragic thing happened, on Cinco de Mayo, someone drowned out in front of our resort. I don't know if the person was an adult or child, or if they were staying at the Grand Mayan. We left the next morning, and the search boats were still going, so the body had not been recovered. The main thing I find so disturbing is that I can't find out anything about it - I've google searched every way I can think of, and there's nothing. Stay out of the ocean, period. If you want a vacay with time spent swimming in the ocean, go somewhere else.
