Good Overall

Best parts were the breakfast buffet and the spa services (no complaints there). Mercedes and Elizabeth at the SPA were both wonderful!! Lunch and dinner buffets were average (roasted meats were always overcooked - and I like well done meat by the way, but each day I tried a piece of varied roasts they were too dry to go beyond a bite). A la carte dining restaurants for which reservations are required were good but not great. Pools were pretty cold (could be heated a little during cooler months). There was one small pool for adults only that was heated, but the main pools were not and I watched everyone make faces when they would dip their feet in. Some braved it, others opted out. Free wi-fi in at least one common area would have been nice. We already knew that there was no swimming in the ocean due to rough waves (they were massive), so that didn't bother us. Service was inconsistent. Overall my boyfriend and I were in need of a getaway due to hectic jobs in Washington, DC and this was one of the best deals we found on short notice, so we definitely enjoyed the relaxation aspect of the trip. I think if we were to go to Cabo again I would research other resorts. Don't think we will go to this one again by choice, unless there is a great deal again.

Our party of 11 said it was about the best trip ever. We (3 generations) try to take 1 trip together every year. The ages range at this time, from 14 to 79. We ALL did the Glass-bottomed boat, the Eco Adventure Safari, ATV Adventure. Plus the resort experience was WONDERFUL!!!!!!

Nice place

This was a nice place. Check in was a little crazy but expected as I had read the reviews. Gave us a room with 2 double beds instead of King and had to go try to resolve. Total check in time 1 hour day 1 and 30 minutes day 2. People are so nice. Room was nice with little refrigerator full of drinks and goodies refilled everyday. Coffee maker in room. Breakfast starts at 7:30, lunch 1:00 and dinner 6:30. Snack area by pool bar with hamburgers, hot dogs, taquittos etc open from 11:00 - 6:00. People do put towels on chairs early but lounge chairs on beach are open and quiet. Had 2 wedding on property and were wonderful. Only real con is with the tile hallways the sound travels. Did not try to get into one of the 3 restaurants as someone told us they were full all week even though we never saw anyone coming or going from them. Each night is a different theme for dinner, but have pizza every night and ice cream. Only about a 15 minute walk into town. Did it 3 times. Very relaxing

Good Value

Resort was a very good value. Our group had a good time. Positives: good food/drink, good service, well maintained grounds, great location, people were very friendly and always there to help. Negatives: rooms were "tired", housekeeping lacked basic supplies (tissues, face towels, floor towels, soap, body wash, etc.), pools could have been kept cleaner. Seemed like maybe a water shortage was in progress because the infinity pool was low and some of the garden fountains were empty. Facility overall was well maintained and clean.

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.

Hotel Description

Barcelo Gran Faro Los Cabos - All-Inclusive: All-Fam Friendly & All-Aahsome

Located in San Jose del Cabo, this sweet resort is fam-tastic. The destination is primo because it's not smack dab in the middle of Cabo, but outside of town. This means you and your brood can chillax in the tropical splendor of Baja - walk on the beach, do the water sports thing, bask in the glow of the magical sunsets and more. 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.
