... Cortez ) on a four-lane highway carved through desert and cactus....an 18 mile connecting road between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, taking Erin and David for their departure from the Airport.
We had not been to San Jose del Cabo, a Mexican town, 1 hours drive from Cabo, so thought we would combine that with chauffeuring D & E to the airport. In San Jose historic district, we were surrounded by colourful old buildings ...
Worked 9-noon and then we hosted the Family Fun Fair in the Piazza from 1:30-4pm. I was assigned to the velvet art cards station. It was the busiest I've ever seen it! People were stealing markers and cards off the crowded table and bringing them to the floor or over to the bar to color them there! Time went by so fast though.
It's formal night tonight so a few of us decided to dress up for the night session of Kid's Dinner and Casino Night.
... wait for your excursion to be called.
To get off the ship in Cabo San Lucas, you needed to take a tender to shore. This means getting on a small overcrowded boat and braving through the waves to get to land. I am not really big on tendering but it is needed to get to land.
Once on shore, our group gathered together until our guide was ready to take us on our excursion. We were also greeted by some performers that showed us some Mexican dances and costumes. ...
... in a few shops, and revelled in the heat. Nothing looked like it needed buying, so we returned to the ship a little while before the all aboard. For me, the best part of the day was a Shavuot service, arranged and run by our friend Lennie Zimmerman. Of course, only the diehards were there, but it was a wonderful service, followed by blintzes and cheesecake provided by Holland America. Full marks, ...

We started about a month ago really packing things up. Posting every earthly belonging on craigslist, which all went much faster than expected; including my pickup truck which basically sold overnight! I was surprised ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Cabo Villas Beach Resort Cabo San Lucas
After reading the reviews about the awful rooms, we e-mailed before we left and asked NOT to be put in the below ground rooms. We were very firm in not taking a tour, being on a "presentation", or anything that would bother us during our week. Yes, they tried several times during the week to get us to breakfast or a get-together, but we always said we had other plans. We received a 6th floor room on the end, with a beautiful view of the entire beach and Sea of Cortez. The entire place is crawling with sales people doing "presentations" all day long. Repeat, all day long.....If you stay here, hold your ground and be gracious but firm. We had a wonderful time but would not stay here again. There are beautiful places with larger pools, better service and NO sales presentations.
Cozy stay at Cabo Villas
I just got back from my first visit to Cabo San Lucas. Cabo Villas Resort was one of the smaller Hotels, but it was accommodating. Our room was on the bottom floor, but is was very clean, the maids always did a good job every day tidying up. The Sunset Grill at the top of the Hotel was amazing. Great food, and AMAZING view. Cabo Villas was close to everything. The beach was a 2 minute walk, and the town and mall were a 5 minute walk. My friends and I do not drink- but if you do- you will find plenty of places to go. If you do not there are also lots of other enjoyable things to do. If you are high maintenance don't stay at Cabo Villas. But if you love a quaint cozy stay- go to Cabo Villas. I enjoyed my stay!!
Don't stay here!!
We just got back yesterday from Cabo. The weather was perfect but Cabo Villas was not. If you are not a timeshare participant forget staying above ground! They have 4 rooms underground and that's where us underlings stay. There's a jacuzzi, but it is so slimey and dirty we could never use it. The staff would not help us although they had empty rooms! They hold them open for "prospective" timeshare buyers. What a joke!!
The pool is dirty and never was cleaned while we were there- 10 nights! It's small and there are tons of kids that never once got out to go to the bathroom..It's a $6.00 cab to town. We found a shortcut to walk to town to save some money.
I warn all of you- DO NOT STAY HERE- unless you are a mole and like to be underground!
While in Los Cabos staying at another hotel, I took the "timeshare tour" of Cabos Villas. After receiving a tour of the property, I was very interested in learning more about buying into the timeshare. In my mind, the hotel looked awesome!
Cabo Villas Resort along with Baja Marketing are SCAM Artist. After the tour of anly the best rooms,which are empty, they make promises that are complete lies. Dont fall for it as we did. Our guide aka sales person put us on the phone with a representive of Resort Services in Pueblo,Colorado,who said he had clients lined up for $2400.00/week rentals. Another lie. After months of making payments on $51,000.00 of a utterly useless Condo.we have not rented a single day. and after reading the other reviews,Isee why,There are better places to stay in Cabo. (--)
I have stayed at many Hotels and Timeshares in Cabo over the last 16 years. Some years we have even gone there twice a year. And with out a doubt Cabo Villas Resort is the worst place to stay in Cabo. Maybe there are others that are worse but I haven't heard or seen one yet. Our stay at Cabo Villas was a nightmare - It is a very small hotel and the resturant at the top of the building is small and dirty - the only good thing was it did have a nice view. People kept coming and going and we found out that they were people being pressured to by a timeshare. In fact they even had us go through there presentation and I couldn't believe all the BS they were giving. They also have small old elevator that smell like someone went the bathroom in it and sounds like it's going to break at anytime. Boy would I hate to be stuck in that elevator for very long!! The rooms were just OK - I have stayed in much better rooms for much less in Cabo and the pool was small like one you would have in your own back yard. In fact I think my pool is bigger!! As you can tell I am not a fan of Cabo Villas Resort and I could even go on further but I won't. After staying at the Cabo Villas Resort this would be the last place I would ever buy a timeshare or ever stay there again!!!!! Do yourself a favor and stay at one of the other hotels.
My wife and I just invested in Cabo Villas Resort. We have been vacationing in Cabo San Lucas for one week a year for seven years now and have stayed at four different resorts and toured many others. Yes, Cabo Villas isn't the biggest, fanciest resort on the main beach or in Cabo. It IS a clean, modern, friendly and accomodating place quite close to most everything in Cabo. Like night and day compared to the other local resort we left! I'm sorry for those who had to experience unfortunate circumstances like hurricanes and rooms without views. This little resort is in the process of a major expansion. Hopefully, these complaints will be a thing of the past. I have no ties/relationships with the owners, but it is comforting to us to know the majority owners hail from Minnesota and, from all reports, take a progressive approach to operating this resort.
Don't Stay at Cabo Villas
We just got back from Cabo Villas and had a nightmare stay. Their web site advertises all rooms with a view. When we got there, they stuck us in a basement room by the laundry. Come to find out, there are 4 rooms with no views. We asked to talk with the management, and after 3-4 hours of passing us from person to person, they basically told us we would have to eat it. We are not members of Cabo Villas, and I guess that's why they stuck us in the basement. The managaement is very unpleasant. We didn't even get an apology. The room/basement area is loud, also. We also got bad info regarding bus times when we wanted to go to Todos Santos. So, DON'T stay at Cabo Villas! It practically ruined our vacation!
First of all, I would highly avoid going to Mexico during the Hurricane season. I discover Cabo Villas while I was at another resort in San Jose Del Cabo. I was so unhappy at that place, yes it was beautiful, but staff was rude, 6 oz of margritas was $10.00, and cab ride to town was $20.00 each way. Most people hang out at The Office when they are in Cabo. Great restaurant and Bar right on the Medano Beach. Cabo Villas was right on the beach. When we went to a time share presentation, I fell in love with the place. Sure it's not a BIG Resort like Melia or Pueblo Bonito Rose but Cabo Villas had it's own charm and comfort. I love the fact that I can just wake up and walk down the beach with access of all the water sport. Going into town is so easy, just a short little walk. I love the friendly staff, and just relaxing by the pool. If you have money to burn, and like to large glitzy resort that Cabo Villas isn't the right place for you. I am going back to Cabo Villas in January and this time I'm taking my boyfriend and his 2 kids with me.
Cabo Villas is nothing like thier advertisements! I don't know where they got those pictures, but it's nothing like they appear. They advertize a gym, well, I just got back and can tell you, they have no gym. The first few hours there were good....until you go to another resort and see how the "other half" live. We were there from Sept. 20 to the 27th and had to endure Hurricane Marty. To say Cabo Villa's was not prepared for a hurricane would be an understatement. We had to dip buckets of water out of the pool (that we couldn't swim in) to flush the toilets with. No power, no water, and NO GENERATOR that could give those two services back. We spent 3 solid days at a different resort because they DID have a generator that supplied enought power to keep the blender in the bar going. After Hurricane Marty, the staff at the Villa's seemed to be very accomodating, but after that, all bets were out the window! They wouldn't help out on dry cleaning, food, beverages, places to shower, nothing.. The last 2 days, we ended up moving to another resort (Fiesta Marina) that would give us a discount on our rooms and accomodate us after the aftermath of Marty. We will go back to Cabo next year, but will NEVER go back to the Cabo Villas..Pueblo Bonito Blanco or Rose is our choice for next time, they have an awesome staff, are prepared for anything and accomodate their guests above and beyond!
