If you are looking for a quiet, laid-back and uncomplicated resort, the Decameron Los Cabos fits the bill perfectly. The facility and grounds are very well-kept with lots of attention to detail. The food is great and the rooms are spacious and clean. Room 257 (Ocean View) has an excellent view of the pool and open sea. As with the two other Decamaron hotels we have stayed at (Bucerias and Nayarit), the strength of the hotel is in its staff, who take the time to get to know their guests and always make you feel welcome and appreciated. If you are looking to go into Cabo San Jose (for either the main square or Thursday art viewing), the "Urbano" bus stops right in front of the hotel. Just give the bus driver a quick wave and let him know that you are going to "el centro." The fare was 23 pesos for the two of us, one way. On another note, we did not take bug spray, and I was bit 3 times by seemingly invisible mosquitos, each time leaving quite the itchy welt. These little critters seem to be partial to ankles, wrists and elbows - a quick spray would probably protect you. Access to the mall is right across the street and up the steps. Also across the street to the left of OXXO is a very nice children's playground and an "artificial turf" soccer field. There was a game in the early evening that was free to watch under covered stands - pretty impressive play and enjoyable to watch. We really enjoyed the resort. No problem getting a chair under some shade either around the main pool or on the beach (the adult pool was a little tougher, however). Don't forget to tip and try the Hummingbird - my wife's favorite drink. Thank you, Decameron, for a very enjoyable 7 days!

Excellent staff

The staff was amazing. The resort is small but very clean and staff very friendly. Mario from air transat tours was very knowledgeable and helped us book our tours that would best suit us. There were plenty of chairs around the pool so you didn't need to get up early to save chairs. Food was decent but I feel there could have been more of a selection. This resort was kid friendly but not a lot of children. I definitely would say if you are on a budget this is a great place. Lucero was great with activities.

The Staff is the edge to this place!

We stayed at this resort from April 1- 8. It is our first time to stay in a smaller resort and I have to say that we are NOT disappointed at all. It is a totally different experience and the attention that the staff has provided us is amazing. The rooms are a good size, clean and has a good view of the courtyard and the beach. The food were great. Loved the Luna dinners that we had. The dinner by the beach where it is located is simply fantastic. Tons of picture moments. The nightly shows were impressive. I definitely did not expect those kinds of performances from a small resort. The Broadway show was awesome! I love the set-up! It's very interactive since it's a small venue. The Mexican Balladeer was like serenading you, the circus acts, the comedies, the fire show...I mean Wow! But let's talk about the staff that went above and beyond... Miguel from the Buffet - Inspiring man. You see an elderly person working very hard but always with a smile on his face makes you ask yourself what is my excuse and ranting all about? Salomon from the buffet - "Mucho Gusto" You hear this term and for sure it's him. We laugh hysterically each time we talk to him. Octavio, Alein and Fausto from the bar - These guys have major skills in both cocktail mixing and mixing it up with different types of people. They know how to handle them when their nice, getting tipsy, drunk and simply annoying rowdy ones. Fausto has provided us with great service even suggesting new drinks to try! Lucero, Alejandra, Brayan and Yair - Now these guys are just simply fantastic! None stop activities from these guys. Don't know where they get their energy from. Alejandra, sits with us and engage in conversation. Yair on the other hand, provides none stop entertainment whether he is on stage or just simply chatting with us. What great sense of humour this guy has. He'll go a long way. From the "Professional Alcoholics" (term coined by one of the entertainment folks) LOL!!!

I booked this vacation just two days in advance and from reading some mixed reviews I wasn't sure what to expect but it exceeded my expectations. I felt comfortable as soon as I entered the lobby – the decor is lovely and I found the front desk reception staff welcoming. I had requested an upper floor but received a ground floor but was accommodated within two days with an upper floor. I can't say enough about the staff here – the most friendly, accommodating and hardworking people you will ever meet in a resort. All the bartenders, servers, activity staff and maids work so hard and are so personable. The nightly shows were professional and fabulous. The food was very good. We usually ate lunch at the a la carte and dinner in the buffet which provided a good assortment of choices. Unfortunately I had an accident and had to see a doctor during my stay and the night manager called the doctor and followed up with me the next morning and I received excellent and prompt attention from the doctor. The guest services manager also came to my aid with follow up the next day. When we were leaving the entire activity group came to the lobby to say goodbye to us which I thought was such a nice touch. We will definitely return to this resort.

Arrival experience horrible and NO CUSTOMER SERVICE!

Our first day abs first time to Cabo (arrival) to hotel was very disappointing (and that is saying it mildly). When we arrived at check in, there was no smile by the woman at the front desk she seemed very bothered to be at work. She didn't make us feel welcome at hotel. I asked her about wifi and she basically told me I had to see someone else about that..huh? Isn't it the check-in person JOB to ensure your check in is smooth and with no issues. The person to handle the wifi was busy with another guest so we would have to wait a long while. Since we were anxious to get to our room and change and eat, i left that battle for later. She gave our room keys to the bell person and he escorted us to our room. Upon arrival. I noticed we only had two room keys when there are three adults in my party. I left that battle for later too since I knew I would have to ask the front desk redemption lady again as she was the only one there. The room was not what I expected or paid for (no view). I call front desk and advise and they give me a hard time asking me tons of questions about what is wrong with the room..I advised several times that it was not what I paid for in my reservation. The person puts me on hold to speak to a manager and then the call went dead. NOONE CALLED BACK. Needless to say we were hungry from all day traveling so I again left this battle for later. So we freshen up and head to pool restaurant to grab some lunch. The hostess greeted us, sat us down with menus and said we are closing in 5 minutes (Which is NOT what the front desk reception lady advised us), when the waiter came we ordered right away. They were many families sitting around us waiting for food. Within 3 minutes, the hostess comes to our table and advised that they have NO buns for burgers, so we quickly order something else. Within another minute, she was back and said they have NO food and the kitchen is closed. While she's telling me this, the other families surrounding us were getting there food delivered and I saw food plates on the counter to be delivered to other guests seated. Needless to say, I terribly annoyed, frustrated, disappointed and very upset. I ask for a manager. That seemed to turn into a very long situation where then the hostess started trying to scramble to come up with some kind of food for us but was then shot down by the cook as he was closing the kitchen area. This entire situation was disturbing and I again asked for the manager. It took over 10 minutes for the food manager, Aramis, to show up. He was very apologetic and then offered us some plated food from the upstairs Mercado restaurant which was due to open in 15 minutes. I asked him why don't you allow us to come to the restaurant then and sit and order off of a menu. He advised he could not do that and advised (we did not have an option) is that he would bring 1 plate of pasta, 1 plate of tacos, 1 plate of chicken quesadilla. Even though I did not like the fact this wasn't any options I would like to have, I went along with it as we were hungry. He advised us the food was already prepared and he would return in 5 minutes. While we were seated, I asked for placemats, place settings, napkins, water and a happy drink. I had to ask three times. The pina colada was horrible. There was no one to ask to return it and remake. They also brought us some nachos..with COLD melted CHEESE. Really? Hmm we waited 17 minutes and I got up and walked away, as I was walking away Aramis shoes up with the plates of food. The quesadilla was burnt, I asked for salsa and he brought back salad dressing and said that there was no salsa available...because kitchen was closed...I asked him to get from restaurant. He advised he could not....he brought three small tacos that were definitely not enough for my 19 year old son and a small plate of pasta. Needless to say again, I'm extremely upset and disappointed and this was communicated to Aramis. This is an all-inclusive and this the outcome of money already spent! I have been to tons of resorts in the Caribbean and world wide and this by far has been the worst experience ever on arrival day. I went to the front desk and asked for manager. I was immediately shuffled with questions gain on why? I again reaffirmed my request. The manager (Sabeen?) advised his apology, however, was only able to offer was a possible room change ?? (No day credit, no wifi credit, no spa credit..an option of a suite..I'm still in awe of the customer service) At this point, I'm still annoyed we had pre-made plans in downtown San Jose de Cabo, so I advised I did not have time to LOOK at another room. I advised I would reconnect next day. You would think upon our return, there would be a message, letter of some sort to rectify our first day experience. Nothing!
