The walkway to and from our room was a LONG ramp that had to be navigated uphill every time you wanted to leave the resort.
Our first room had a leaky toilet requiring that we be moved. When we were moved to the second room, our ocean view was partially blocked by a wall. We requested to be moved again, but were told the resort was completely booked (something we later discovered was untrue).
The swimming pool was FILTHY with debris floating in it every day we were there. When we went down first thing each morning, the debris from the previous afternoon was still there.
The food was not palatable. We ate lunch our first day at the poolside grill. The calimari was burned and tough and the nachos were greasy, all at prices that were on the top end of the scale. The food was so bad we turned down the opportunity to eat for free at the special welcome buffet.
The only good things about this resort were our walks on the beach and that the bad food and service encouraged us to travel OUTSIDE the resort to experience many of the great things about Cabo.
Don't waste your money!
PS We were called in our room EVERY day and encouraged to attend a timeshare presentation, an invitation we refused.
PPS We bought a timeshare at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach.

Terrace was semi-private but nice. Oh, speaking of the hot tub in the room -it's actually in the bedroom, and if you aren't careful you can literally fall (walk) right in it! The tub, by design, is not situated in the best of places -- too darn close to the window.
P.S. I know I said the accommodations were first class -- they were -- however, it wouldn't be 100% accurate if I did't mention that we had a wee bit of a problem with just a couple of LARGE water bugs to chase and kill. If I ever stayed there again (and I would), I'd ask beforehand that the suite be exterminated!
Lastly, getting around the resort did require using the resort's trams. One call from your suite phone and in a matter of minutes, there is a tram waiting to take you to the club lobby or to the hotel lobby. Trust me -- you can't walk unless your suite is nearer the main pool and you can walk through the hotel's pathway. If not, don't attempt it -- just call for a tram.
One last note: the design of Club Regina is such that everywhere one looks the architecturer made sure that the eyes feasted on nothing but ocean, cactus, sand, pool, and starry skies at night! Enjoy Cabos -- it truly can be labeled the playground for the young and old at heart!

The surf can be quite strong at the beach, and swimming is not recommended, but we got lucky and had a very gentle surf most of the week and were able to swim and snorkel often.
There were many planned events to take part in, like a Mexican Fiesta with folkloric dancing and costumes from different areas of Mexico. A great selection of authentic Mexican cuisine is served. There is also a seafood night with lobster and so much great seafood to eat. If you like raw oysters, lobster, and seafood in general, don't miss this event.
SJC is a quiet little town with many shops to buy arts and crafts. CSL is a much busier place, with many bars and clubs (didn't go to Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo -- maybe next time). There are many beaches and bays to explore and see. The best way to get around is to rent a car, as the Regina is in a fairly secluded area, the way I like it.

The adults only pool is awesome. The spa is incredible, especially the massages and the really nice restaurant is just that, really nice and romantic. The staff was very friendly and we loved calling for rides on the carts. However, we also enjoyed walking all over the resort as it wasn't as strenuous as other journals made it seem. Can't wait to go back.

There are numerous activites at the resort, which is good because it is very difficult to get into town. Taxis are available, but they are quite expensive. You can also take the city bus, but the bus stop is about a mile from the villas. The Westin has an internal shuttle because it is so large. We would take the shuttle to the hotel end of the resort and then walk to the road. This cut about a 1/3 of a mile off the journey to the bus stop.
This is probably one of the most beautiful resorts we have ever stayed in. I would definitely return. The only drawback to it is its seclusion. This can be a good thing if that is what you are looking for, but we like to explore and try out different restaurants. And if you want to go deep-sea fishing or whale watching, you will need to get to Cabo San Lucas, because that is where the boats leave from. A taxi to Cabo is about $25 each way. As a result, we spent more time and money at the Westin than we might have otherwise.
