My family and I decided to rent a one-bedroom suite with a kitchen. The unit was large with a kitchen, living area, bedroom, 2 toilets, washer and dryer, etc. We were so close to the ocean that it was difficult to fall asleep, with the waves crashing nearby. The worse thing about this unit was the comfort level. There was none! The bed was like sleeping on cement and the pillows were as flat as pancakes. The pull out couch was like sleeping on springs that poke into your body. Also, we had absolutely no hot water while we were there. We asked the front desk to see if there was something wrong with the plumbing, but they never responded. Also, we had ants crawling all over the place.
The accessibility of grocery shopping = none! We had to pay $20 per person for a shuttle ride into town. The grocery store had a poor selection of unfresh veggies and meat. We had to settle for familiar food that looked decent. We wanted to eat out but also stay in to save money.
The food at the resort was pretty good, but expensive. There is a buffet, but it's not worth it. It would be more practical to order off the menu. The carne asada is most excellent there. Also, the fried calamari at the pool bar is good.
The beach is not for swimmers because of its rugged environment. Head to Medano Beach in the city to enjoy the beach, for free. Since it was very hot in August, the pools were very warm and uncomfortable.
This place is more ideal for families. If you are looking for luxury, try to reserve at these wonderful resorts: One & Only Palmilla, Las Ventanas al Paraiso, Esperanza, and Westin (there are more developments on the way).

Call the resort ahead of time before you arrive. The concierge will arrange a shuttle for you. Otherwise when you step out of the baggage claim, umpteen hundred people will be there ready to sign you up for a timeshare presentation. And you may not get to your resort.Best Things About the Resort:The staff is super-nice. They work to accommodate you in so many ways.
They have a great spa.
It is truly a beautiful resort. The pictures do not do it justice.Resort Experience:It was a great place and fun to visit. We were there when Hurricane Marty hit. The staff was friendly and the food was nice.
Be sure to get a cheeseburger. One day about 2pm after being in the sun, I ordered a cheeseburger. It may sound cheesy, but there's nothing like a cheeseburger in paradise.

The entire staff always appeared eager to address any need, desire, or question. The concierge made all our dinner reservations and provided suggestions for food and activities. Business center has internet access for nominal fee so we could check in with kids at home.
You could easily spend entire week at hotel as long as you want only peace and quiet. It was particularly quiet at night without any club or activities on the premises. Space at the pools was plentiful, and lounge chairs and towels were always available. Although the beach was not fine sand, the palapas with lounges and food or drink service were quiet and relaxing. Beware, however, because the ocean seemed bit rough for swimming.
If you do not mind being 15 minutes from town, you cannot go wrong here. As we had a car, it was no problem. Without a car, I understand you need to rely on the hotel shuttle ($20 roundtrip per person and it stops running at 10pm) or taxis (even more expensive) -- that can become pricey every day.

Paradoxically, we found ourselves liking the hotel and its facilities, appreciating the courtesy of the staff, enjoying the food, and admiring the scenic views and weather, but absolutely agreed that we would never return to the Fiesta Americana. That is what a lousy room and one obnoxious employee can do to one's attitude.

The biggest drawback of the place is that it is really spread out. We happened to be at the last building on the property, and if you didn't utilize the golf carts for rides you would walk about a quarter mile plus back to the lobby or even further to the parking garage.
The restaurants looked good, but we never ate at them. Also if you don't rent a car you will have to pay about $18 for a shuttle back and forth into town. I recommend renting a car at the airport.
For families with kids there is a kids club that will watch kids aged 5 - 12 from 9am to 5pm so you can get away from them if you wish.
The overall rating for this place is very good. A beautiful hotel/timeshare that has the best pools in Cabo, a nice beach, good service, and nice rooms. Have fun!
