Great Time!

This was our second visit to this resort and it was fabulous! A great big special "Thank You!" to the management and staff during Hurricane Newton. The hotel was prepared and was on top of the situation at all times. We only lost one day due to the hurricane - but the hotel made sure that the guests had food and drink. The hotel also provided free entertainment every evening - which was great! Lots of food options on the buffets. We really liked how the snack bar by the pool offered a variety of snacks throughout the day! There was always something available to munch on! Staff were always friendly and pleasant. We will stay at this hotel again when visiting Cabo or another Barcelo at another location.

Worst trip ever hotel had broken toilet broken coffee pot and electric was out a day. This was our honeymoon and my wife was devastated to have this happen. Called cheap carribean and they seemed not to care about our experience. We will not use them again after spending 1500.00 dollars and having worst time of our life on the most important day of our lives. Should be reimbursed some of our trip back.

Great

Hi this is a great hotel to stay at. The hotel food, and staff were great. One thing to keep in mind is that this resort does not have WIFI. If you want it you will have to pay, which we did but it worked less then half of the time.

Amazing Vacation

I don't know where to start. Thank you so much to the entire staff for making this vacation one of our best ones. The entire staff in this resort is very well trained. From the front desk to the maids. Since we arrived in Los Cabos. People of Mexico showed us warm hospitality. The transfer to the resort. The rooms were ready. The luggage was delivered and we started our vacation right away. You don't have to open even the door they will do it for you with a smile. . You always have somebody to try to make your vacation better. The rooms and the bathrooms are big and spacious. The AC is control by motion sensor and if your door is open it will stop working. Its energy efficient. Our maids made every day different sculptures with the towels on the top of our beds. The rooms were taken care of the moment we put the sign on the door. Thank you for this special attention. I read a lot of reviews before I booked this vacation. And everyone was saying that the food Is fantastic. I have to agree a hundred percent with them. I traveled with my very picky two teenagers and they couldn't find anything to complain. The Texas barbecue dinner was really nice. My sons enjoyed the sushi dinner very much. Thank you Juan! My family really appreciate your effort to make our dinners quite nice. When people say the good beach is big white and quite. This beach is that. You can not swim there. But the pools are great. You can walk or run for miles on the shoreline and feel great appreciating the beauty of this place.

What's to Love

It's all-inclusive, all-fam-bam-friendly and all-Caboliscious.

Private balconies that have spectacular views of the dreamy blue Sea of Cortez.

The Deep Blue Spa. Hydrotherapy and marine-based treatments. Meltaliscious.

The signature cocktail menu - it's creative and crafty and we love it.

From the front desk to the bartenders, the customer service is sunsational.

 

What We'd Change

There's not a lot of seating at the beach, but the sand is so powdery and the water so crystalline blue, furniture would probably just get in the way.

 

Why You Should Go

It's just a zippy 15 minutes from the airport. Cocktail time is so near you can taste it.

Kids' Club ages 4-11 has puppet theater, videogames & more. Your munchkins will love it.

The snack bar serves up delish snacks all day long. Lotsa good grazing.

There are wave runners for splash-worthy fun & a fitness center for calorie-burning.

You can tee off at three swingin' golf courses that aren't too far away.

But if you want a little more action, you all can hit the main marina town or take a boat trip to El Arco. It's all insanely Baja beautiful.
