We just checked the weather in Abbotsford and it says that it's Cloudy and 45 degrees F as compared to where we sit right at this moment in the lobby of ME Cabo where it's 87 degrees F and clear as a bell.
Deb and I got up and had an early breakfast in the dining room and got one of the first tenders off the boat so we got into Cabo before …
... 5 minutes later, we would have been on our way and the water would have continued to flow all day through the Condo!!!! it appears the new dishwasher was installed "Mexican style" and the black tape holding the hose on had let go.
The dishwasher débâcle had delayed our departure, however we eventually set off on our journey up the coast to Todos Santos on the Pacific ocean side . A new ...

We all went to Horizons for round 1 and headed to the Teens Hot Tub Party for round 2 on food. The Hot Tub Party on some ships offers chocolate covered strawberries among the other food available, so I pigged out on those before heading to bed. My.Weakness. ...
... enjoying our meal and drinks, we sat near a couple from Russia. The couple from Russia did not speak must English (a few words and that was all). Anyways, we had fun trying to communicate with them. They were very friendly. Joanne especially enjoyed drinking tequila with the man named Serga. The woman's name was Svelta and she had the most beautiful blue eyes.
After eating, we took the bus back to the cruise ship where we had to tender back as we had done in ...
... We separated from our companions of Don and Linda as we wanted to venture further into the town and have a nice stroll back to the ship later in the day. At the Diamonds International store on the pier, they were advertising free shuttles into town to their larger store. We decided that this would be a good means of transportation for us. To our surprise the shuttle was not a mini-bus, but was bicycle taxis for two. This was great; we would be able to ride in a covered ...

Historical Traveler Reviews ME Cabo Cabo San Lucas
Muy Bueno Melia
I spent 5 glorious days at the Melia in August 2002.The accommodation were excellant along with the service. Pool bartender was friendly and always kept the glasses full. I don't believe you can beat the view and its within easy walking distance of the downtown action. Couldn't find a thing to complain about, even if I wanted to....I'd highly recommend this hotel.
I LOVE THE MELIA...
The very best place to stay in Cabo. We have been there 3 times and are about to go for a 4th. GREAT location... near town and the beach and the marina...and Peacocks resturant is just down a dirt road and 5 Star!!! It is on the best and onlt swin=mming beach in Cabo and the Office is the greatest spot to go for happy hour. Our service at the Melia has always been good. One day, the elevator wne t out and we had to walk the stairs but hey, this is Mexico. We have had great rooms and the chef has fixed the fish that we caught fishing. As far as I am concerned, the Melia is the only place to stay in CABO!
Incredible Vacation Spot!
Just returned from an awesome Easter week at the Melia. GREAT hotel, pool activities & super fun town. Our room had a huge balcony that was an added bonus. Pool bar was great, as were various Happy Hours at the Lobby bar & the fun places on the beach - The Office, Mango Deck, etc. Cabo Wabo Cantina, El Squid Row & The Trailer Park were all fun dining/dancing experiences. We had 2 13 year olds with us, & they were fully occupied with all the beach activities also. Great spot for families, singles & couples. Something for everyone! Will definitely go back next year. Only minor annoyance was nasty female concierge in lobby doing the time share spiel. Just don't make eye contact with her & you're safe.
I stayed at the Melia. iIt as a beautiful place and closer to the beach than the other resorts. We got a great price and service. It is close to the popular bars such as the office and the mango deck. They offer free scuba classes and breakfast included to your price if you know how to ask. My stay at the Melia was a positive experience for the mos part. The only thing that would hae to bring my rating down is that they did not make a big enough effort to solve our problem of the noisy neighbors. Next to our room there were 17 eople staying in one room. They would make a lot of noise at late hours. It took them two days before they accomidated us and transferred us to another room on the other side of the resort.
Location, Location, Location
Just got back 4/12/03 from one of the best weeks ever. MSL in our minds is the best property in Cabo, hospitable, clean and convenient is how we would describe this property. No car is needed unless touring to San Jose is in your plans. Town is no more than 4 City blocks away a perfect distance to walk off dinner. Inexpensive cocktails just 50 yards down the beach which comes with free entertainment. Basically, all of Cabo is at your fingertips from the MSL if you want it. If you don't, you don't need to leave the property to have a great time.
I have been to Cabo many times. Twice a year to be exact. I have stayed at 2 other hotels with friends. They were great too. However, you cant beat the location of this hotel. It sits close to everything. walking distance to downtown (10 minutes if you must know), 5 minutes walk to "The Office" (check it out!) and Billigans you cant beat the happy hour deals 2 for one on drinks, Its on the beach and also the only hotel there with a swim up bar. Every one of the staff members is great and now they know me by 1st name. None the less the hotel looks old but the service is great the staff very attentive food is very good. The night life if your into that, can be cool. This place is very popular in Mexico as its situated close to everything. I will continue to stay there as long as it continues with the great service!
This place was great. I stayed here through a Suntrip vacation and was very surprised. The hotel was upscale and our room was great. I requested an oceanview room and I got one. The week I stayed (March 23-March 28) there were no timeshare people in the lobby at all-so I was pleasantly surprised again. My only word of caution is not to purchase any water at the hotel or through the restaurants-it's a rip-off.
I stayed at the Melia San Lucas from 11/22/02 through 11/25/02. As a frequent traveler and a returning visitor
Taken advantage of!
Melia San Lucas double charged my credit card after I checked out and had returned to the US. After multiple attempts to rectify their mistake, they have refused to change the mistake. It is now apparent that this was not a mistake! They clearly wanted to take advantage of a traveling US Citizen. They have been reported to the authorities. BE SMART WHEN STAYING THERE!
We hated the Melia
Melia San Lucas has damp smelling rooms and wants to: a) bother you to sell you time shares when you pass through the lobby, b) bother you to truck you up the coast to their new hotel for breakfast because 'no-one is staying there yet, c) charge you $10 for margaritas and $5 for small bottled water ... and then they DRAINED THE POOL on SATURDAY, for scheduled maintainence. Reason; "Its low season", even though the hotel was FULLY BOOKED. No offer of refund or reduction in room rate.
We all moved next door to Pueblo Bonita even though we had fully pre-paid @ Melia. Lovely place, beautiful rooms, much better value; bright & airy. Offered us ocean view junior suite @ $145 night.
The Melia chain does not care about you.
