Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Hacienda Del Mar Golf & Spa Resort Los Cabos Cabo San Lucas
If you have money to burn, stay here
Just got back from Cabo. Hacienda Del Mar was one of the most beautiful resort I've ever stayed in. The grounds, view, and pools were all fabulous. However, I will never go back there. For the amount of money we paid, the service was not what we expected. First, they do not have a free shuttle service to and from town. You have to pay $20.00 US each way for a cab, which adds up very quickly. Then they charge $10.00 for 8 oz glass of margritas. Basically all the food and drinks were highly over priced. Also execption of the few friendly staff, most of them were rude. I needed to tip one of the staff, so I asked one of the bartender if he had any change for $10.00. He flat out said he didn't have any. How could a bartender not have any change for $10.00? Then when we went to check out, not only it took over 45 min, they added on bunch of other charges that we didn't use so it took even longer. Also do not use their laundry service, for 15 pcs (all t-shirs, shorts, underware) they charged $170.00. Like I mentioned, the place is beautiful, and if you have money to burn, I highly recommended. However, you can find so much better places to stay and eat in town.
We just got back from 5 nights at the Sheraton. The hotel grounds were beautiful as was the beach. Only complaints were that the food and drinks were priced to high for what you got and the rooms were noisy. The cleaning and landscaping staffs were out and about at 7am. We did manage to dodge the timeshare people the whole trip :p. Nice place but I probably wouldn't stay there again. I get better service in Hawaii for the same price.
I just returned from this facility on a site inspection for a small group meeting for January 2004. I reviewed four properties and this was clearly the best. I would go here if I were going to Cabo for a vacation. And, yes get the ocean view rooms.
The hotel itself was very nice by any standards. I can't tell you how impressed I was with the hotel property. The perfect location on a private beach. I have 2 complaints. The walls were very thin. You could hear everything your neighbor was doing. The food was expensive at the resort. Example: $17 for a hamburger.
It is a beautiful and safe resort and friendly staff. I like the breakfast buffet ($21 for adult and $5 for a 2 year old), maybe a little bit expensive but it is worth it with its incrediably ocean view. Great swimming pools. We will definitely stay in Sheraton next time in Cabos.
Beautiful location, too pricey
The resort is incredible. Swimming is quite dangerous here, but the pools more than make up for the lack of ocean swim time. Our room was perfect - we only paid for a garden view room, but it was situated on a corner, so part of our balcony overlooked the ocean. The shuttle is nice to have, it saves a little money - $10 round trip per person to Cabo San Lucas, but if you are planning on staying in town past 9:30, you lose the second half of the round trip you paid for. And you will have to take a cab back. In three days, we spent $80 on transportation to and from town, and an additional $54 on transportation to and from the airport. I would suggest renting a car - it will save you a lot of hassle and will be worth it. Also, the breakfast menu is very expensive - $13 for a continental breakfast (and the quality wasn't great)
But, if money is not a worry for you, this place is fantastic. We had a great time.
I own a couple of timeshares. Hacienda del Mar is far and above an awesome place. It's the pinnacle of opulance! The grounds are amazing, the facilites plentiful, and the staff, all I can say is...hand and foot. They are they to see to it your stay is the very best it can be. Treat yourself and check it out!
Sheraton Hacienda Del Mar Hotel and Time Share
Being a time share owner at this resort, I can say Iīve had the best time, even coming from San Diego, where the beach is great. The location of the resort is perfect for a getaway (like in an island) but not too far so you can have the party time of your life at Cabo San Lucas. Taxi is a bit expensive, but itīs definetly worth it. Also the resort is beautifull, great swiming pools, and great beach to swim, but not on hurricane season, it gets a little too wild.
We just returned from Cabo. Had a great time at this property. Very nice rooms and the staff was excellent. I would highly recommend staying here. The only downfall is location. It's a $20 taxi ride to Cabo 1 way.
Very nice resort- I would spend the extra bucks to get an oceanfront, not oceanview, room. We upgraded upon arrival from oceanview to oceanfront for $50 USD per day. Food and drinks are good but extremely expensive, even for the basics ($13.00 hamburgers at pool, $7.00 drinks, etc.) There is no swimming in the ocean at this resort due to strong currents and large waves.

... our feeling of how friendly the locals are. Garry & I were stocking up on a few groceries at the local supermarket after dropping E & D at the airport. A young Mexican glanced at my trolley as we were passing in an aisle. "no,no" he looked at me and said, "not those ones" (I was buying prepackaged tortillas ). "Come with me" and he lead me to where the deli were making fresh ones with corn . They were still warm and a ...

We went back to our rooms and changed again and met everyone else at the bar for the crew disco. The first couple hours were so boring. Nobody danced and the music sucked. A few people finally got up and started dancing alone and it wasn't long before about 100 crew were all squished together dancing our hardest! So.Much.Fun. I was beat by the end of the disco and my bed was never more welcoming. ...
... Oh yes, as you leave the boat at any port, there is always a NCL representative wanting to take your picture (wanting you to eventually buy it). I am sure this is normal with all cruise lines but it is amazing how representatives will try to get you to buy extras on a cruise. We normally don't buy these extras though and just go past the photographers as we already have enough pictures that we are taking on our own. On this particular port though, I was able to sneak in a ...
