... room to move and supposedly a good captain. Also, the deal was BYO for a 6am start.
We met Doug there bright and early, we brought the beers because on the boat he donated a bottle of tequila to the leaving party which we did a pretty good job of so we owed him. We had a carton of beer because we are going to be at sea for 8 hours and you never know, sometimes the crew gets thirsty.
Well the first beers were cracked at 6am, the same time ...
... photos. Quite a busy place - we got a bicycle taxi to downtown - new experience! We wandered around the usual tatty shops and then some more upmarket ones. There were lots of lovely yachts in the marina - most of them belonging to Americans I think.
Got back to the ship at about 3.30 and had afternoon tea! The ship sailed about 6pm - stood for ages looking for more whales but no luck!
Bye bye Mexico - we are off to San Francisco!
... an off-roading adventure in our Jeep. With me behind the wheel, a tiny map and an attitude you could shake a stick at we ventured off into the bush and dirt roads to further discover what the town was all about. We found empty beaches, quiet holiday homes, vultures, friendly locals, beautiful views, more desert and more sunshine. I definitely recommend this place for a day trip!
Before I sum up my Cabo adventure I'll mention the food. YUM! Is what I can ...
... and got in our fuzzy robes and slippers. We went out on the balcony, and just stayed up talking into the night.
So I'm awake this morning before Shery who apparently was kept up by a buzzing fly in her ear so that she had to come and stay in my bed to escape it. I'm out on the balcony typing up this entry thinking about how lucky I am to be able to be here today.
And in case you were wondering where he was:
... 20 minutes for our boat to come back and get us. Not very happy about this as we have limited amount of time in Cabo.
After getting back to the main town we went to a few markets and walked around killing off the remaining amount of time we had left. This was the only port day were we stayed off the ship until the very end. After getting back onbaord we waked up on deck to take some last minute pictures of Cabo and Mexico!

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.
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!
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.
