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.

My family and I returned from our summer vacation a week ago. Destination was Cabo San Lucas. Apparently, the mister loves taking this Mama when pregnant to Mexico. I know, insane. I was 7.5 months pregnant and survived two short flights. A lot better than a few years ago when I was 6.5 months pregnant and flew all the way to Cancun, while we had …
... I was eager to try was called El Squid Roe, which seemed to be one of the most popular dance clubs/bars downtown. I can barely even describe the place-- almost like a Joe's Crab Shack but with neon lights, a dance floor, and a double-decker bus on one end that served as a bar and lounge area. I loved it. We even ran into Jonathan's coworker from Apple there-- it was the strangest coincidence. He and his coworker had no idea that the other would be in Cabo. Go figure.
... perfect anywhere because we had the beach to ourselves. We waste no time getting in the bright blue water and spend our morning snorkeling along the reef; following around parrotfish in desperate attempts to get a decent photo of the beautiful creatures. Underwater sword fights, underwater photo-shoots and underwater handstands had me wishing I could live and breathe underwater. The ...
... Later on we then saw groups of little baby mantarrays jumping out of the sea together, soaring through the air, amazing and just ridiculous! When they are swimming on the surface you are able to see just the tips of their fins which could easily be mistaken for a shark. We came across about 20+ by the end of the trip.
We were treated to the familiar sound of the barking sea lions as we ...
... the hard part of choosing my Mexi travel buddy we now had to choose a destination in Baja to stay for a week, Cabo San Lucas was the first place to come to mind as my parents had been there and couldn’t stop saying how amazing it was. We also wanted to extend the trip, which we paid extra for, but boy was it worth it! Weeks of back and forth emails, trawling travel websites (thank you Expedia and Trip Adviser) and ear to ear grinning, we had our trip ...
