... changed a lot since I was last here in the 80's wow.
We took a cab into town and walked the Malecon. Great artwork.
Did a little more shopping and that was about it.
I am including a picture of Terry Bishop, a performer on board. Great English wit, and folk songs, and the odd naughty joke as well!
OK. More later. We are having late dinner and now that I've brought it up, we're rehashing the bowling adventue so I better find that photo! CRAZY DAY. Oh, and Nate showed up, and CT, and now we're at the hostel.. Peter: "Why does my place look like a hostel?" Dave: "Why do you care?"
And so.. for now.. gotsta finish these pix for Dave and catch up on the next bad flick.
Buenos noches! ...

After lunch the girls were shown hand signals by Johanna and had a chance to instruct the dolphins just like a professional would do. They were guiding the dolphins just by using the hand signals shown them by the guides and by the end they had the dolphins doing all sorts of tricks and somersaults etc. After ...

We'd stayed at the Siesta Suites Hotel before so we knew what to expect, however this time we got to meet the owner, Alex, and his wife Nancy since Juan the manager was on vacation visiting family in Oaxaca for the first time in 3 years. Alex is an ex-pat ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Club Regina Los Cabos San Jose Del Cabo
I bought this timeshare from a buddy of mine who purchased it on his honeymoon and never went back-3 little ones put a damper in that plan for a few years. I have always been impresssed with the layout, 7 pools, great resteraunts, beaches, and incredible views from each room. The staff is friendly, rooms clean and spacious, and comfortable. Im on the Club Regina side and have a kitchen. I have a 1 bedroom unit w/2 bathrooms. Im going there again at the end of March and this will be my 5th stay in the past few years.
We have been to the Westin Regina three times to date. After traveling the world, we have found this property to be the one "to come home to." During our second visit, we initiated and purchased a time share there (after having researched it prior to our arrival), and we have had no problem getting reservations there on dates we requested.
We stayed at the Club Regina which is the timeshare associated with the Westin from January 15 - 22 of 2005. All of the reviews of the hotel apply but there are some diffrences that you should be aware of prior to staying at the timeshares. The key one is accessability. If you have difficulty walking, it is not built for easy access to the suites, or to the pools or the beach. True enoguh, you can take the golf cart rides to go from point to point, but you will have steps to take at steep angles to get into the suites or to a pool or the beach. The hotel seemed a little more accessible in this regard. If you take the time share pitch, you get 20% off on all your purchases which made the high prices for food and drink more managable. You also get a discount on shuttle rates and tours, but they do not offer us the $100 for food or Hilton dollars. All in all a good stay, great views, but not easy to get around and we have no difficulty walking.
After falling for a hard core sales pitch I bought. Over the last year I have tried to book 6 times with no success. I was also informed by the sales manager after signing that I could not change my mind and that he would "tear up" any such request (I understand this is not legal) and that I could not sell the timeshare to anyone for two years (I have yet to investigate this). My most recent problem was trying to book again. They requested a 189.00 charge through raintree/rci to go to a different resort in Cabo because they could not take me at the westin or any of the other resorts we are supposed to be able to access. They left this as a open request. Interestingly enough they charged me two 189. fees, even though I canceled the open request the same day. I have been trying for over a week to get refunds, but get the run around. I have no vacation week, have been charged 378. and have been informed that they have 30 days in which to refund my monies. This on top of paying a maintenance fee and the purchase price. Not worth it. I own in 3 other timeshares (all bought on-line at less than 1200. each) and never have a problem booking through Interval to exchange or use these-even though they are float weeks. Do not buy here, beautiful but not worth the hassle or price. It is easier to book a regular week here then to own.
Relaxing stay at the Westin
We just got back from our first trip to Cabo over Thanksgiving. My husband and I stayed at Club Regina and had a wonderful relaxing stay. We left our children at home with grandparents because we heard that the resort was not really kid friendly. However, we encountered many families with children, all seemed to be having a great time. All of the staff was wonderful and accommodating. The food was delicious. I highly recommend the champagne brunch and the shrimp and scallop salad at the pool restaurant. The oceanside massages were awesome. Overall, a very pleasant stay. We will definitely return with the whole family.
Westin Regina Los Cabos is amazing! Stayed in one of the ocean view casitas at Club Regina. The hotel grounds and architecture are absolutely awe-inspiring.
After reading all the negative reviews on this resort I was a little worried about our stay - 12 days from Sept 5-16.
Club Regina (separate from the Westin Regina Hotel). The Accomodations were wonderful.
We just got back last night from a 7 day stay at the glorious Westin Regina. My husband and I traveled with another couple and used their time share club to get two suites in the Club Regina which is part of the hotel. Our rooms were fantastic suites with amazing veiws of the Sea of Cortez with kitchen living room and seperate bedroom with a jacuzzi that overlooked the ocean we also had two full bathrooms. The Club Regina and hotel staff were so helpful always friendly and wanted to see if there was anything they could do to make our stay better. The beach was immaculate you can go in the water when the tide is not high and the pools (7) are amazing. As I had discovered from reading all of the reviews about the area before we went the food is rather expensive (but nothing different from Maui when we have gone there). We caught fish one day and had them prepared that night at the hotel which was fun - they also froze the rest so that we could take it home. We took someone else's advise from the reviews and rented a car - that was definately the way to go. Took a trip to Todos Santos one day- it's about 1 1/2 hours away and a beautiful drive. We had our best meal there at a road side vendor Barajas Tacos. You have to have the shrimp tacos and fish tacos they are huge and cost about a dollar a piece. We paid 6 dollars for the whole meal for two. If you go look for Mauricio down at the beach he seems to be in charge of things down there and will set up your lounge chairs and give you great advise on everything from things to do to where to eat. He sent us to El Meson de Zapata (fish and meat tacos, soups etc.) and Mariscos Mazatlan (seafood, lobster etc. have the shrimp we all agreed it was the best) Both of those restaurants are in Los Cabos. You have to go to Ristorante Da Giorio II at sunset (it's one of the best views around). We ate at Damiana in San Jose the most wonderful coutyard restaurant very colorful with tangled trees overhead and great staff - the guacamole was really good.
My husband and I stayed at Club Regina in the Westin Regina in Los Cabos 10/18 - 10/24. The accomodations were spacious and clean, but a bit outdated. The walk in shower was marvelous, but the in room jacuzzi left a bit to be desired. Nonetheless, it was relaxing to be in a bathtub overlooking the sea! We were using his folks timeshare, so I really can't complain about free accomodations. What makes this hotel different from the others is the architecture and location. It is literally built on the side of a mountain overlooking the Sea of Cortez. It's beautiful! It's a huge resort - so big that they pick you up in golf carts to shuttle you from place to place. We never had to wait more than a few minutes to pick us up and we found the golf cart staff to be one of the Westins best assets. Very, very friendly and knowledgeable. All of their employees very wonderful. The entire resort was very clean and the pools were great. So relaxing to hang on the side of an infinity pool overlooking the ocean. There isn't much beach because of the mountain location, so if you need a huge beach, this isn't the resort for you. The restaurants served wonderful food, but as mentioned in other reviews it is pricey. The bar drinks were also over priced, but hey, we were on vacation. Splurged a bit on that. I did see people bring their own beverages to the pool area and no one said anything to them. As for the time share gig that they try to get you to attend...they do approach you as soon as you check in and make it sound like it's just an orientation of the hotel and all that it has to offer. But we knew better. We just told the girl we'd be there for the 10 AM presentation the next day, but never showed up! She did call 2 days in a row and left a message on our machine, but we never returned her call, and by the third day she figured out that we weren't interested. And we truly were not interested, no matter how much free stuff they gave you! One of the best things we did was rent a car through AAA at home. A shuttle from the airport took us right to the Hertz place. We stopped at a grocery store to load up on munchies and drinks. (Club Regina rooms do have a full kitchen and a small stocked refrigerator-again way over priced), so get your coffee, pop, beer, bottled water and other goodies at a store before you get to the hotel. There is a small deli type store right in the hotel, but things are much cheaper at a "Super Mercado". Yes, there is a shuttle into town at the hotel, but we don't like being on someone else's schedule. Plus, we had so much fun just driving around, exploring the towns, different restaurants, shops, etc. We drove to Todos Santos one day and it was great. It's about an hour and a half North of Cabo San Lucas. Beautiful drive along the Pacific. We had a nice lunch at "Hotel California" and an excellent, excellent dinner at Los Adobos. Gourmet Mexican cooking at its best. Speaking of food....in San Jose breakfast at the Tropicana was great and in Cabo San Lucas, I highly recommend Mi Casa Del Mar for authentic Mexican cooking. It's near the fire station. Another wonderful place to eat was La Golondrina, also known as The Trailor Park. It's an open air place with a huge banyon tree right in the middle of it. Candles, and soft lights were all around. Very romantic, but not fancy at all. The deep fried red snapper was out of this world! We've been to Cancun and Playa Del Carmen before and I loved those places as well, but Cabo is more old world Mexican. Not tropical like the Carribean side, but beautiful because of the mountains and desert. Don't forget to bring mosquito repellent. I got bit up! And exchange your money at a bank, you get a much better rate. Viva Mexico!
