I will start with the pros of this hotel. This hotel was a 3 star for sure. It had a great shower, the bed had a very firm mattress, and our room was clean, updated, and ac was very cold. The pool was great, if that's what you like to do. We like to sit on the ocean. The pool was the best feature of the hotel. The food was good but, if you've been to the all inclusive in Cancun, then it's about a 1/3 of what you get there but the food was very good. There is no easy access to a snack bar. We thought we could come off the beach and get food (like in Cancun) but you had to wear shirt/shoes and it was a sit down restaurant outside. You couldn't take food out of the restaurant which made snacking on the beach inconvenient. If you love to get in the ocean, this is not the hotel for you. The hotel is above a steep hill so you can't hear the waves or see the waves crashing. You have to walk about 50 yards from the beach chairs/pallapa to see the shore. We've always been able to sit under a pallapa and watch the ocean. This hotel had a black flag out that meant "dangerous to swim" so there was no swimmimg. The entertainment was ok and 90% occupancy was hispanic. I'm hispanic and my husband is Caucasian so he was the minority. Some of the staff seemed hostile towards Americans but most of the staff was nice. The music was lame and it was mostly goofy mexican music that I've never heard before. It wasn't like Mana or anything. Overall, it was a 3 star and we decided it didn't impress us enough to go back.

My husband and I just returned from a five-day vacation to Los Cabos. This hotel is a nice and clean place. The food is good, the service is good, and the staff is very helpful. Our thanks to Jesus, the assistant manager and Danya at the front desk. Do not recommend for July-October. It is hot and humid.
Just the right size!!!

At the airport we were told our hotel/resort was really small. To our surprise it was JUST RIGHT!!! It was not over crowded, always had a seat for dinner, pool side, and at the bar. The bartender Octavio (hope I didnt spell too bad) was amazing. His electric lemonade slushy was delicious!!! The cleaning service was good, quick and efficient. The food was ok...nothing to write home about and I had something at every meal I went back for.
Take the bus downtown it is so much cheaper than taxis. If you get the right taxi driver he will also tell you great places to go. I would go back and stay at the same resort.
Can't beat the experience for the Money !

First, do not even think about booking this great hotel if you use a wheelchair , walker, etc. There are stairs, stairs and more stairs, both inside and outside in the gardens. If that is not a problem-- book this place ASAP! You will love it. Upon arriving you will enter a large open air lobby where you can look out on the ocean across the huge manicured gardens. Get a drink at the Lobby, with terrazzo floors, comfortable King bed, and remotely controlled A/C from anywhere in the unit. Your 8 ' soft couch with lots of throw pillows will provide comfort for viewing your large 42 " flat screen TV ( with some English channels ) Movies, and CNN as well as other shows. No FOX News or CNBC, etc. You also have a 48 " round cocktail table , which with some throw pillows, doubles as a nice footstool. Your floor to ceiling wall of sliding glass doors leads to a good sized patio with 2 padded wooden chairs and cocktail table. Blackout drapes provide for darkened late sleeping. Do not get a room near the pool, however, if you like to sleep late, as the Towel Hut guy cranks up the music by 9:15 am and the pool does not even open until 10:00. You can't hear the melody in your room, just the Base -- boom, boom, which is ultra annoying. Next, your bathroom will have a large walk in shower with rain head, and no tub. There is a floor to ceiling mirror on the wall, also. The vanity/bowl area is very dimly lit and not very convenient for apply makeup. The maid service is excellent, and she will be providing you with 6 drinks per day., in your refrigerator. Two beers, 2 waters, and 1 Pepsi, and 1 7 UP. If you want to change this , just tell her what you want. The food is always good and in the beachfront reservation restaurant the lamb is highly recommended. There is lively entertainment each evening at the outside bar area with lots of comfortable cushioned furniture to relax on . One night was a circus act, and also fire dances. Another night was a rock band, with singer, and another night was a lady who had an excellent singing voice the likes of Whitney Houston. Then on Tues. night the beachfront patio became a buffet restaurant with another bar, featuring a band and singer. White linen cloths and candlelight , etc. made for a lovely experience. Please give all the hardworking employees some tips. They really need them and are so grateful. Ask me anything and I'll answer you promptly. You'll have a great time be assured. It is very high humidity there so be prepared . The beach is extremely wide, but the waves are way too big to safely swim in the ocean. There are 2 large pools kiddie pool, and an adults only roof top Jacuzzi. with it's own bar up there.
Great, Relaxing Hotel for the Money

A friend and I needed a relaxing vacation, found this hotel on Groupon and booked it. We were so happy with our choice! The resort is on the small side, but it still offered everything we needed: All inclusive, multiple pools, spa, great beach view, nightly entertainment and fun! It's also in San Jose del Cabo. We were worried we would regret not being in Cabo San Lucas, but I think I actually prefer it. It's much quieter and nicer than the busy San Lucas.
Check-in was super easy. We gave them our Groupon voucher, filled out a few papers, got our wrist bands and that's it. They brought us a welcome drink while this occurred, such a nice touch. We checked in early, so our room wasn't ready. But there was a restroom where we could change into our swimsuits and they stored our luggage for us. We went exploring and got our first cocktail. They have a great selection of drinks and the bartenders are always willing to whip something up when you don't know what you want. Service at all levels was definitely on point!
Our room was very stylish and clean. The bathroom was super nice and I loved the rain shower head! As everyone has said in their reviews, the beds were hard, but I had absolutely no trouble sleeping on them, and I HATE a hard bed. The A/C worked extremely well (have to have a cold room) and the mini fridge was always stocked with complimentary water/soda/beer. Hint: Don't pay for the safe. When you get to your room, use code 0000 to open it, then you can change the code to whatever you want. Just remember to leave it like you found it. ;) You can purchase wifi (we chose not to). When they say 24 hours, its 24 hours total use and not say Monday at 4pm to Tuesday at 4pm.
The pools were want you want from a resort pool. There were lots of kids during the week we stayed, but there was plenty of space for them to play and not disturb the adults in the main pool area. There is also an adults only pool on the roof of the spa/gym. This area has the BEST view, best music (they change the music to match who's at the adult pool...they heard my Texas accent and changed the music to country...HILARIOUS; but they usually play more current/top 40 music), best restroom, best lounge areas, best in-pool seating and best bartender (Isaac!!). Highly recommend the strawberry mojito! It was a crowd favorite.
The SPA: When we were planning our trip, there weren't any reviews on the Spa. All we knew is that the hotel had one. We were nervous when we got there due to lack of information, but it turned out to be amazing. In our 4 days, we went twice! We would visit the spa in the mornings before hitting the pool to schedule our massages for that afternoon. Ask for the daily specials! One day was a free facial with a 50 minute massage and the other deal we used was 20% off an 80 minute massage. Both come with use of the sauna. The staff was very nice and professional. The locker room was very clean. They need to upgrade their shampoo/conditioner though. (It dried out my hair.)
The food was good, not terrible, not great. Breakfast is the best meal of the day by far! I really enjoyed the ala cart restaurant, but my friend preferred the buffet. If you like potatoes and rice, you will be a happy camper. They have them at every meal. It kind of became a running joke for us. But there was always a wide variety of entre options to choose from. You can only schedule the ala cart dinner the morning of. The "snack bar" menu wasn't bad, but when I think snack bar, I think quick snacks. This was more of an ala cart lunch (no reservations required). Food was good though.
The evening entertainment was a nice option for something to do. Some things were a little cheesy, like the circus and fire show (still worth going though). They had a battle of the sexes game show one night and it was a riot! So funny! They do have a club/disco on site. We tried going our last night, but it was dead (Wednesday night). However, we heard that everyone went the night before and it was a blast! The hotel also has a pub crawl that you can participate on through the town of San Jose ($$) if you want to get out of the resort for a bit which includes transportation and drinks at each location. We didn't want to pay the money so we passed. The hotel has daytime entertainment as well, which included volleyball (pool & sand), water aerobics, bingo, yoga and fun games.
The best part of the trip was sitting on the beach at sunset watching the waves. So relaxing! You can't get in the water bc the current is too strong, but we were able to get close enough to let the waves wash over our feet (sometimes knees!). You can feel the power of the water just from that! We took a bus ($2, very safe) to San Lucas one day and booked a snorkel trip there to enjoy the water. You catch the bus in front of the Mega (think Mexico's Wal-Mart) across the street from the hotel (about a 5 minute walk).
Overall, it's a great place to stay! Well worth the price. I would definitely go back.
