Historical Traveler Reviews Dreams Los Cabos Suites Golf Resort & Spa Cabo San Lucas
beautiful people, beautiful rooms, just beautiful. The one thing i recommend is to book a rental car, a taxi ride is expensive.
Great beach. Hotel not the best
Great, swimmable beach. Hotel needed upkeep and could have been cleaner. Many people opted for all-inclusive (we didn't), which resulted in cups and straws floating in the pool by the end of the day.
Yuck! Better choice would be the Hilton nextdoor.
Great romantic resort!
This resort was AWESOME! We went in July of 2002 and I only have two negative things to say. The first is that they were adding on to the resort so we had to listen to construction while lounging at their freeform pool. We got used to it though, by just drinking more margaritas at the swim-up bar. Surely the construction is over by now though. Second was the location. My wife and I are in our 20's and like to get spring break style on vacation so partying late in town cost an additional $20 for the cab ride back. The location had other effects to such as anything we bought from the grocery store (in town) we had to carry back on the bus. Those two things aside we loved it. Everything was first class, the staff, the rooms and the restaurants. The daytime bartenders at the swim-up bar would tell us their stories of life in Mexico and Gabby (the events coordinator) would get everyone involved in water volleyball or water polo. The great thing is that the winning team received a free round of drinks! Lets see the beds were very comfortable, the view of the ocean from our balcony was euphoric and the beach was great for those late night, howl at the moon after Squid Roe type activities. It is not however a swimmable beach so don't even try unless you plan on dieing like a rock star. I reccommend this place if you plan on spending the majority of your nights at the resort. If you plan on exploring the town during the day and catching a nice dinner and that's it, you should definitely stay here. If you want to be in the center of the action though, stay in Cabo San Lucas. We're going back this August and are staying by the marina. Wherever you stay really doesn't matter too much I guess because you're on vacation in one of the most beautiful towns in the world!
Pleasantly Surprised...Loved every minute of it!!!
This was our first time to Cabo and we were pleasantly surprised. We've been to other resorts in Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and ixtapa and this is by far the best place out of the 4 cities. The area is more modern, beautiful scenery, less peddlers, and friendlier. Our hotel was beautiful. If you like serenity and peace then this hotel is the one for you. All the rooms are suites with a balcony facing the beach and the ocean. The rooms were exceptionally clean with all the necessary amenities including a microwave and a small fridge. The pool was huge and did not seem crowded at all. The gym was standard and the spa was pretty good too. The hotel has access to the beach (white and clean) and the blue ocean but during certain times of the year, the water is too rough to swim in. If you don't want a time-share then try to avoid any presentations or "welcome packages" from the hotel. The hotel doesn't pressure you to attend but they do call you at least once. Transportation into Cabo was easily accessible and cheap if you took the local bus ($1 each way vs. $22 for a taxi). The bus runs every 20 minutes or less and the last run into the city is at 10PM and out of the city at 10:30 PM. The hotel offers a free shuttle 3 times during the day at specific times so it doesn't always fit into your schedules. Food at the hotel is expensive and average. If you want to get good food, go into town. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. I would love to go to Cabo again and stay at the same hotel. Go check it out!!! By the way, check out the Expedia website for virtual room and hotel tour...it's well worth your time. And if you want a great activity in Cabo...try Baja ATV tour of the old lighthouse. Well worth the time and the money if you like active activities and beautiful views of the ocean..
I've been to Cabo twice before, and we've stayed in town. This time we were looking for something quieter (less peddlers on the beach) and we were so blessed with our choice of Melia Los Cabos. The hotel is perfect - new, clean, beautiful spacious rooms (all ocean view), huge pool and jacuzzi. The ocean is perfect, and the sand is white and clean. The colors: blue sky, blue pool, and blue ocean, contrasted with the white sands, green palm trees, and hotel is perfect. It is hard to believe that we were only a two hour flight from home. Don't worry about there only being a few shuttles into town per day - there is a local bus that runs every fifteen minutes till 10 pm - and it's only a dollar per person each way! Great deal. Service at the hotel was just OK, but that's mexico, and it did not bring our vacation down one bit! Go stay at Melia Los Cabos!
My husband and I just spent a week in beautiful Cabo. We absolutely adored this hotel, which is so very clean and fancy. We spent most of our time at the pool, which was just as gorgeous as it is pictured on websites. The staff goes way out of its way to make you feel welcome and relaxed. Join in the free cooking classes, bartending classes and volleyball games. We had a blast. The food at the restaurant was UNREAL. Yes, it was on the expensive side, but it was the best sea bass we'd ever had. My only suggestion would be to reserve the free shuttle into town a day ahead and you'll have no trouble going into town. Also, vegetarians will have trouble finding food at this hotel...and in this part of Mexico in general. We can't wait to go back to this hotel. It was the best vacation we ever took.
Good first time visit
The hotel is beautiful. You have a great view from any room. Very clean. You will have much better food if you eat somewhere other than the hotel. The food is very expensive for being OK. The employees are very friendly. Plan to rent a car if you want to go to San Lucas or San Jose Del Cabo. The shuttles do not run all the time. For our first time, the hotel was a good pick. I think we would stay in San Jose at a smaller place next time.
Beautiful but Beware
Beautiful, hotel, golf courses, desert, mountains, madano beach, peopleBeware, Hotel does not have three restaurants it has one, does not have hourly shuttle service to Cabo, two a day 9am and 6pm (only 10 people) Front desk staff (not all) don't always tell the truth. Above all double check your bill for (many) errors and be prepared to spend time for corrections.
Best kept secret in Cabo
As first time visitors to Cabo we we're lucky to choose such an outstanding hotel. Away from the crowds of town, the Melia is the perfect place to sit and enjoy doing nothing. Since the hotel is between the two main towns, it is an easy bus ride to either place. The only drawback is that there is no easy access to fast food or liqour stores. Be prepared to be waited on by the nicest staff that I have ever met.
Melia Los Cabos Review
Overall, the resort is beautiful. The service was first class as well. The rooms are a suite and the bathrooms are nice sized. The two leveled pool is gorgeous with a large fountain and great swim up bar. The only negatives were the time share hasslers and the restaurant was not very good and very pricey. But we would defintely stay there again.

... I very rarely wear a cardigan, even in the depths of an English winter.
One thing I forgot to mention in my last post was that after the ship had changed course to drop off the sick patient in Mexico we very nearly collided with a fishing vessel. The ship suddenly swerved, throwing the swimming pool and hot tub contents all over the place, and giving us all a huge fright And people thing that cruising isn't adventurous?
I've seen SO many dolphins, I’ve even seen a Turtle with a bird sat on it, seriously, that actually happens in real life! The first time I saw a Dolphin I was casually on the laptop on prom deck facing the ocean; all of a sudden I saw a splash and I almost lost my mind. Next thing I knew 5 dolphins jumped out the water in tandem about 20 yards from where I was standing, I frantically looked around agast hoping someone else was ...
... and valuable art work he smuggled out of Russia, sewn into the lid of his suitcases- Michael had written a book and after working with Ted Turner (ex husband of Jane Fonda), went to Russia to set up a film studio for Turner. Bisbees is the Worlds richest fishing event and there he was again, pic of him and his crew as winner in 2012 on "Frantic Pace" with his cheque of $2,396,800!!
G & me invited him to join us for dinner down ...
... not the best thing to put in a suitcase when bags are literally thrown onto the conveyor belt into the plane.
I thought we were on our way to San Jose, we were, but first a stop at a resort overlooking Cabo San Lucas. All 5 buses converged there so getting from the bus to the drinks table was a long slow conga line. Finding a seat in the crowed shade was impossible. I got back on the bus early with my can of Pepsi that I saved for Doug - I already ...
... we will spend the next few days and nights in a food and drink coma! We got sucked in to listening to a time share presentation so we got picked up and taken to another resort to have breakfast and listen to their spiel. The resort they were selling was 6* and absolutely gorgeous. We watched paddle borders and whales in the Pacific Ocean over breakfast... After the presentation we walked into town and around the Marina. We had tacos from Fernando at his taco truck and took ...
