Honestly don't know where to begin. I NEVER EVER write reviews, but I had to on this one! Checking in, we had reserved 1 king bed w/ocean view and they gave me and my husband 2 double beds with the view of the restaurant. And didn't want to change it. The lady at the front desk named Yesenia is probably the rudest person I have ever encountered at a Hotel. Anyways, WIFI is $10 A DAY PER DEVICE & THERE IS ALSO A CHARGE FOR THE SAFE!! Food is all inclusive for a reason! it tastes BAD, no flavor! At the buffet my husband saw a roach walking on the ''clean'' plates and they just killed it like it was no biggie, then I found hair in my waffles. we just couldn't get a break. The drinks are watered down like crazy and they don't even know how to make drinks to top it off. they close the pools at 7/8 and expect you to sit through the shows they put on which are ridiculous! There is no AC in the entire hotel, only in the rooms, so don't expect to chill anywhere without drenching in sweat, super humid. The room we got was small with a small balcony & the bathroom is small too, The door to the shower is the same door for if you wana use the toilet, so weird! never seen that! and that same door happens to be see-through. so if you're a couple I guess its no big deal. The ''mini-bar'' in the rooms are ridiculous! 2 waters 2 sodas and 2 beers! that's it! We stayed here for 4 days & I kid you not, every single day we asked for more water bottles and they always said they would bring them to us and NEVER DID! We would call about every 30 min and nothing, til we went down to the bar & asked the bar tender to fill the empty ones we had. That made us mad, cause they kept lying to us and all they would say was sorry we will send some and its like they didn't care cause they never did. One of the days, the toilet got stopped up & we asked for a plunger & you can already imagine how that went. Plunger got to us THE NEXT DAY! and it was when we were not in our room so they left it outside our door! The only restaurant they have here that is not a nasty buffet is good food, BUT you cannot eat there unless you make reservations, & there is a window to make reservations too. So if you miss it, you cant eat there. even if there are sooo many empty seats they don't care. The beach is a non- swimmable beach, so that was disappointing & to top it off, you cant just enjoy the view of it, because the ppl trying to sell you stuff, form a line in front of you and display what they are selling on the sand!! I don't know why there isn't a beach rule for that. The one and only good thing I have to say about this place is that SOME of the ppl working here are very nice & really try to accommodate you, but for the girl YESENIA at the front desk, you can tell she really doesn't like her job & don't care about one bit about customer service! Don't stay here! You will be very disappointed! Also this place at night turns into a GhostTown. Nothing to do, Stay somewhere in cabo san lucas instead! or maybe another hotel in los cabos, but not here. We felt that because we used a groupon to stay here, they treated us a certain way too. My husband and i are not picky ppl AT ALL either! just so you can get an idea, stay away from this place, you have been warned!!
Great place for the price

I also stumbled upon the groupon and a girlfriend and I decided to come out for our birthdays which are a day apart. The hotel was enjoyable and the staff was AMAZING! I agree with some others who commented on some of the pool bartenders not being the best but that was only about two of them. Everyone else went above and beyond to make us comfortable. They threw in some extras for our bday, the awesome ladies at breakfast had a cake made for each of us on our bday and sang Happy Birthday in Spanish. They were so awesome and went over and above to take care of us, Tania and Xochitel also Daniel was amazing.
The room had an amazing ocean view, it was nice and kept clean. The bed was comfortable but I do think they mislead you on a stocked bar in the room. We only were allowed to get two Tecate Lights and a two bottles of water.
The food does need some improvement but honestly I have stayed many places in Mexico and it just isn't the same as American food. I do think they can improve here but still it was by no means bad. And for the amount of money we spent we had extra to go out and enjoy some food in town.
Carlos and Jenny worked very hard to get everyone involved in things, they would come over and chat with us at the pool. They were both beautiful people and made the trip more fun.
The Wedding Planner, sorry can't remember all those names he has but he knows who I am talking about, was awesome. He helped find good restaurants for us and also helped me. I got to Mexico and was emailed that I had an offer on the sale of my home. He helped me get the contract printed, signed, scanned, and emailed back. He was a doll!
Cruz was a bellhop who went above and beyond for us. He had a cab back to the airport for us on our departure date that was 25 cheaper than the cab we took there. He also called the morning of our last day to ask when he should come get our backs.
Africa at the front desk was awesome too, she took good care of us and didn't charge for the safe since it was our birthday. She was so good to us and so very pleasant!
It was amazing how many of the staff members remembered our birthday on our birthday. They made it special.
They do have some room to improve like changing the decor a bit and improving the food and drink quality but honestly they are just starting and trying to get off the ground.
This staff deserves the chance at making this place one of the best and they probably will.
I would have no problem going back to see them all and give lots of hugs.
All in all this was way better than I expected! The groupon deal makes you a little worried, but this one was really awesome. If you see a groupon again I would tell you to rush to buy it, I know I WILL!!!

The resort itself its very modern, nice, with so much potential. The front desk customer service was terrible, the drinks were simply disgusting with little to no flavor or descent alcohol. The food was mediocre unless you had dinner a la carte but that was only available 1 night of the entire 4 days there. Worst all inclusive deal I've yet experienced not to mention that nothing was ever available. However, I will say that some of the bartenders tried their best to make the drinks with what they had but their products was just horrible-not the bartenders fault-the hotel of course. Adolfo, Axel, Alain, Enrique, and the pizza man were just amazing and really tried their best to cater to us... I WILL NEVER stay here again even if they paid me!

Excellent. It's ranked #26 for a reason and it's clear that some of those 60 Excellent reviews are fake. The 27, 28 and 29th ranked places are all above the quality and overall experience of the Decameron. As prior reviewers have mentioned the food is marginal to average. The breakfast wait staff kills themselves to provide good service (the only staff members that do). Pool bartenders just don't care and are very slow to serve. The guy we encountered one night tending the lobby bar was, on a rude scale of 1-10, a 12. The one of the disco bartenders (the only one we saw) was just like the pool bar guys and clearly didn't like his job.
If you drink beer or wine you'll get by but just like just about every other all-inclusive the well liquor is rot-gut. The rooms are updated and ok.
The only reason I'll give this a poor vs. terrible rating is because the breakfast staff really was on top of it and the overall price. It was cheap but it definitely negative of the value side.
We spend a fair amount of time in Los Cabos and experience a lot of different places either through vacations or business. Every so often we come across a store or restaurant or hotel that just seems to clearly not want Gringo business. The Decameron chain is Latin American based and maybe they've decide they want their clients from there.
That's certainly the feeling we walked away with.
Spend your money someplace else that truly acts, and treats you, like they want your business.
Great resort for the price

The staff was real friendly and took care of us. Omar and Gerardo are awesome bartenders! They didn't water down the drinks and they went above and beyond to serve us. They had a great sense of humor and always had a smile on their faces. Our food waiter Max was great! Very friendly and was accomodating. Quick service with a smile! The entertainment staff was great as well. William made us all feel so welcome. We thought he had been working there for a long time but turned out he just started working there. You would never have thought that with the amount of smiles and conversations he had with us. The housekeeping staff always had fresh towels out and made the beds everyday. The rooms and resort were very beautiful.
One thing I would say is I wish they would've had a more variety in food. With only 2 restaurants, your choices were limited. The nachos were amazing though!
