This hotel is the ultimate get-a-way. If you're looking to relax, unwind, get some sun, and be pampered all day long...then this is the place for you. My girlfriend and I arrived on Nov 21st and were greeted with complimentary drinks, overlooking the gorgeous view of the ocean from the lobby.
I agree with the other reviews that the food was pretty pricey, however, we ate Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner at the hotel almost everyday of our 5-Day stay, and when everything was all said and done, we averaged about $120/day in food and beverages per day. This might sound like a lot, but considering the quality of food... I alone had Kobe Beef Burgers, Mahi Mahi, and Lobster just to name a few. If you think about going into Cabo for dinner, that's when it really gets expensive. Places to eat are cheaper, but the cab fare will run you $25 USD each way. Our weakness was their Fresh Iced Tea. Add a few packets of Splenda and it's a tasty treat at the pool.
Personally, I would have rather stayed at the Hotel then walked around Cabo. Everywhere I turned in town there were people trying to sell Timeshares. We were actually suckered into touring a timeshare, simply because the freebies were too good to pass up. We received 2-free Parasailing passes, a sunset cruise, free breakfast, and free cab fare. All for a 2hr tour at the over-priced timeshare. The timeshares are a rip-off, but the freebies were real.
My only complaint is that I wish there were more channels on their TV. Once the sun goes down, and dinner is over, there really isn't much else to do at the resort, except go into town, or sleep.
