This Hotel is an older property. Situated on the Pacific side of Cabo, on a beautiful beach. Lovely location! We sat on the beach or at the Restaurant watching the whales and the whales being chased by the whale watching boats.
The Hotel is very clean, maid service and the maintanence of the property is very, very good. However the property is undergoing major reconstruction/demolition, not even renovation, it is in the process of demolishing the Hotel building by building. The original room we had booked was an oceanfront suite and when I asked why we weren't getting what we had paid for I finally found out that these rooms were no longer available because they were due to be demolished. The Manager of the Hotel was very accomodating and did everything in his power to make us happy and we did receive a free up-grade to a bigger room although this was not explained to us initially. There is also only really one restaurant available on the property for the "all inclusive meal plan" which was fine for us as we were only there 4 nights. We still got taxis to and from the town for $* each way and went out for dinner around the Marina area, you can walk but it is a good walk and coming back to the hotel it is all up hill. This is definitely a less crowded facility with a very nice pool and swim up bar. The other Hotel guests were largely timeshare guests who were return visitors for the last 20 years or more and were very friendly and helpful for insider tips. The Grand Solmar is the new Hotel being built by the same owners and is right next door it is also undergoing construction.
