... close to the shore to try and snag a quick Dorado (dolphin fish) but nothing just the first round of beers were done. Then we started motoring south out to the entry of where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific. Well, there were two hot seats and so we all took turns sitting in them waiting for a fish to bite. Lucky we brought beers with us because there were no bites for the whole day. We were cruising everywhere and the crew reckon they saw a marlin ...
... the plane was late leaving for its trip to Puerto Vallarta flight so therefore late on return for our flight to Cabo. Well, they lied. Once on the plane the captain explained that the original captain AND the back-up were both sick so he had been brought in from Niagara Falls to pilot the plane. We arrived without further incident so all is well. We will be here for a week on the one-week-all-inclusive/air included. About the same price as ...
... Mexico. For those of you not fortunate enough to make to Mexico just yet, here is my two cents on Mexican dining in NZ - for burritos see Mexicali Fresh, tacos - none other than MexiKai, for chimichangas pay a visit to Mexican Cafe, for decent quesadillas you'll need to make the journey to Wellington and eat at Viva Mexico, for authentic ethnic dishes of all variety head along to Mexican Specialties in Ellerslie for the experience of eating in a ...
... contrary to the media hype.

Historical Traveler Reviews Fiesta Americana Grand Los Cabos Golf & Spa Cabo San Lucas
We just returned from a 5 day/4 night stay at this beautiful resort hotel. The service was wonderful, the rooms were beautiful. The views from each window and sitting area are breathtaking. This hotel was filled with many hard-working employees, ready to serve. We had an amazing time!
The people/service could not have been better. The beach wasn't great for swimming, but who swims in January. It was a great beach to sit and read and watch the sun come up. The only issue I had was I thought the walls could be better insulated for sound. My neighbors were gymnasts or newlyweds or newlywed gymnasts. All in all, the golf couldn't have been better, guacamole was incredible, beer was cold, tequilla strong, service stellar, hot tubs hot, grounds beautiful, hammocks nice, weather perfect. I can't complain. I'd go back.
We just returned from a trip to Cabo San Lucas, where we stayed at the Fiesta Americana. It was aboulutely beautiful. The grounds around the hotel were landscaped with palm trees, cactus and bougenvillas with the most beautiful colors. It was very well taken care of. They had three pools one of them was a swim up bar. One they called the infinity pool where we would look out into the ocean and watch the wales play. It almost looked like they were putting on a show for us. they also had many hot tubs around.
We recently returned from a trip in October 2002. This resort is a wonderful venue if you want to get away from the world. We had been to Cabo previously and knew that the beaches were only tolerable in the Corridor. The Fiesta Americana beach is not one that can be swam at easily. It is very rocky and the waves are powerful. However to suntan, gaze, and listen to the ocean it is wonderful. The resort makes up for the beach with a magnificent pool area. The wait staff at the pool and beach were wonderful.
Just back from a short vacation over Thanksgiving at the Fiesta Americana Los Cabos. The rooms are spacious and all have ocean views. The food in the restaurants was excellent but expensive. The grounds and pools are beautiful with a swim up bar and comfortable and plentiful lounge chairs. The staff was friendly and the service top-notch.
Loved It! Going Back!
My husband and I just returned after spending six wonderful days at Fiesta Americana Grand Los Cabos. We were overwhelmed with the friendliness of the staff, the beautiful grounds, facilities, rooms, pools, Pacific Coast, the excellent meals at all three restaurants and how quaint yet modern the town of Los Cabos was.
We can't wait to return to see the whales next Spring! This is the only place in Mexico where I drank the water straight out of the room faucet and didn't get sick (I've been vacationing all over Mexico since 1978).
I would recommend this resort facility to any and everyone.
We just returned from our vacation to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and stayed at the Fiesta Americana. All I can say is that I am writing this review having returned early from the trip due to dissatisfaction with the "resort" and the area of Cabo as a whole. We actually paid extra to fly home a day early because we figured the money spent on rearranging the flight would be better spent than on another disappointing and expensive day at Fiesta Americana. Our time and days off are much more valuable. Dubbed as a five star resort- it is far from it. Having traveled extensively this hotel rated maybe a 3 star at best. There was virtually nothing going on at the hotel, the beach was unswimmable, the decor of little to note, a shuttle to town was provided sporadically and at inconvenient intervals ($10.00 each trip)and should you miss it- a $44.00 roundtrip taxi ride. To workout in the gym cost $10.00 per day. A 4 ounce bottle of water- $4.00. The rooms were replete with small ants and the beds-well, if you like not sleeping for your vacation and getting a splinter from the straw in your pillow- this is the place for you.
My wife and I visited the Fiesta Americana in August 2002, the hot and humid low-season.
The kids club at Fiesta Americana Grand in Cabo San Lucas is more of a babysitting service. Children either did puzzles, coloring or played nintendo. Children stayed inside one room the entire time. The same service at the Fiesta Americana Grand, Cancun, Mexico offered a variety of physical games, swimming, Spanish bingo-pool side, arts and crafts, lunch, a superivsed game room which included air hockey and ping pong. The children had a full day of activities both indoors and outside.
My husband and I just returned from a vacation in the Los Cabos area. To save $100 on our rental car, we agreed to see a presentation about the Fiesta Americana Vacation Club (FAVC). They don't like the term "timeshare," and, the Club is different than what I've ever thought of as a timeshare.
