How to Get There
We were here last year and loved it so much that we went again this year. Absolutely love this property. Outstanding staff at every turn, our favorite employee is Juan Carlos in the lobby bar- and the meals there are great, though limited variety, but in some cases better than the restaurants. You can also get the room service meals served there. The Pool Service is our favorite- and we saw whales everyday! We upgraded to the full oceanfront room on the first floor this trip- this is the best location ever! You have your own private lanai and a grassy area in front of it, and the beautiful blue sea beyond that.We never left the hotel this trip. A word of caution, the beach is gorgeous but it is really coarse sand- so bring water shoes!
I can't recommend this hotel more....the hotel grounds, the club suites, the pool/jacuzzi and spa are great. The staff is the cherry on top. Totally worth an investment for a family or couples vacation.
This resort is your typically, as expect, wonderful Hilton property situated on a slight hill that drops down to the beach. With this layout you arrive at the top and walk down through the bar on the 3rd floor, to a good restaurant on the 2nd, to the infinity pool and cafe on the 1st and finally a beautiful beach with crystal clear water. Stunning.
I was there in Jan for part business, part pleasure. It's a great resort for this as there's lots of different places to eat for large groups and again (did I mention this?) a stunning beach to swim in out front.
The staff are exceptional - very friendly, gracious, grateful to be working, and accommodating to your needs. For activities such as whale watching, scuba diving, swimming with dolphins etc... transportation is easily arranged at the concierge on the 3rd floor.
For amenities like a spa or fitness facility - they have both and the gym was fine. I used it a couple of times and in particular liked running the stars up and down just outside of it.
So why did I give it just 4 stars? I think honestly, that despite some incredible "better than expected" experiences, there was a simply disappointment that they can easily fix - crappy coffee! Seriously, for a world-class resort I know they can do better! Especially pay $7 USD at the STBX. It's funny how a "little" think like this can sway one's viewpoint. Of note, I've stayed in hotels much less beautiful than this but a GREAT cup of coffee goes a long way in balancing out the experience.
But on a final note - the ocean swimming. I would get up for a pre-dawn 6:45am swim by diving into the crystal clear water. On our final day, on diving in, I could hear whales calling. Incredible. And lying on your back, with the ocean's swell gently caressing you, with my ears just below the surface, I could hear the whales. Amazing, blissful, pleasure-moment experience.
Final parting thought - would I do back? Yes. But I might bring my own coffee maker for in-room brewing. El Wine Shop close to San Jose has a GREAT selection fo world wines and... fresh roast coffee. Quick stop en route from the airport to the Hilton. Bamm. :)
If you are reading this review of the Hilton, you are probably like me who is traveling to Cabo for the first time. Also like me, you are probably a little bit leery of the safety there, and you are most likely wondering whether the Hilton is worthwhile with so many hotels in Cabo, some of which with much lower prices. (Some people we met got all inclusive deals through Costco Travel in nearby hotels.) With that precious little vacation time that you have, you wonder if this hotel is worth it to stay for your time here while in Cabo. I can assure you that if you can afford what the Hilton is charging, you will not disappoint. Cabo is safe because I was told that all the big hotels got together and pooled money to get security for the area after the government did nothing when the drug cartels were trolling the streets a couple of years ago fighting for drug territory. Cabo feels a little bit like California, USA, with all the giant supermarkets (Fresko, Chedrauai, El Comer) and a Costco! I find that Cabo is probably a better destination than Hawaii because it is only 2.5 hours flight from Los Angeles whereas it takes 5 hours to go to Honolulu. The weather in Cabo is a perfect, cool and breezy 74 degrees Fahrenheit in December during Christmas. (In August and September it can be over 100 degrees.) The Hilton is not in San Jose Del Cabo (the old town - by the way Toro Guero, a restaurant in town, is not worthwhile even with all the recommendations from the locals) nor the party town of Cabo San Lucas but midway between the two. I believe that it is located in the perfect spot if you need some peace and quiet and a relaxed atmosphere. It is about a 20 minute ride from the airport. (You can get a taxi for $30 that is probably cheaper than as if you were to book ahead with any of the rides that's offered on TripAdvisor, providing that your flight lands there during the daytime.) This hotel was remodeled after the hurricane came through about 4 years ago and what you now get is a beautifully tranquil and relaxed setting and landscape as a result of their choice of art and stone color that are used throughout the hotel. The relaxed feeling doesn't end there...the massive infinity pool beckons you but you are still reluctant. All those worries melts away just as soon as you dip your feet into the water and find that it is heated and nicely WARM and invites you to linger as long as you want without you shivering. From this infinity pool, you can swim/waddle to the bar and get a cool drink or a fresh coconut. Below on the beach, the hotel has about a hundred beach chairs that you can sit watching the calm blueness of the Sea of Cortez. There are enough umbrellas that if you want some shade you got some shade. As I have read in previous reviews that there are people who put a book or some other inconsequential item on some of these chairs and who don't show up until later in the afternoon. I see this also while I was there. It really is unfair. Somebody could have used the chair and be done with before these people actually show up there to use it. If you are a family with small children, this hotel is perfect for you as well. On the other side of the hotel which also fronts the beach, they have a shack staffed with two lovely Mexican ladies who will entertain your kids with all kinds of crafts and activities from 9am to 5pm so you can have a bit of time for yourself. Each kid got to make a gingerbread house for Christmas. These were similar to the kind that you find at Costco for $10. There is also a second dolphin pool for the kiddies. There is also a teen club which we did not have a chance to check out. The staff are friendly and helpful. A young woman at the front desk named Clarissa? was super helpful and very nice to us with our questions about rooms. The only thing that was questionable during our entire stay there was my observing a waiter who works at the bar next to the infinity pool area never washing his hands going from putting the order in at the computer to pushing three olives onto a stick with his bare hands and fingers and then putting the stick into someone's drink. The alcohol probably sanitized it but it was gross and it is food poisoning waiting to happen. Having a small thong to hold the olives while he pushed it through the stick would have saved it.
Our family stayed 4 nights during Christmas 2018. I booked the vista club rooms which are the highest rooms on the 6th floor with views of the ocean (when on the second day we saw a whale repeatedly flapping its tail on the water for about 10 minutes) and overlooking the infinity pool and the entrance to El Meson, the restaurant. The Vista Club came with a slew of benefits. There was a complimentary bottle of 250ml of white Tequila Esperanto Seleccia in our room when we arrived. The vista club allows you free breakfast (they have very good substantial breakfast spread from made to order omelettes to a whole bunch of other stuff that is worth your money), chips and guacamole at 1pm in the pool area, snacks and wine at 5pm, bite size desserts at 8pm. It also comes with free gym clothes washing and shoe shine (which we did not use), pressing 2 garments a day, and a bunch of other stuff. If you use many of the offered services, then it is more than worthwhile to get it when you book. These higher rooms pool the sound of the waves in a way that it is as if the waves are crashing just outside your sliding door that opens to the balcony. The sliding door provides good insulation at night that the waves are just a lull after you close the door. The mattress could be better. It was a hard single mattress on a wooden board "box spring". I also wished they had flatter pillows. There is a bath tub and a separate shower. The shower had good pressure and nicely hot water this being on the 6th floor. Their toilet paper roll emits a baby powder smell every time you pull to use the toilet paper. Very pleasant. It made me smile whenever I was there to use the toilet. I love that the elevators are fast. Kudos to whoever programmed it. What else? Oh yes. Reserve dinner at El Farallon in Cabo San Lucas at the Resort at Pedregal. It is not to be missed. Food was fresh, delicious and flavorful. Their soup starter that came with the course is as good as any soup that Thomas Keller serves at his restaurant, The French Laundry, in Napa, California. Get the giant clam that is the size of your hand, one of which will almost fill you up already. Also, on the marina in Cabo San Lucas, there is a small restaurant called El Pocho which has very good flavorful food as well. The owner has his own boat and his fish (they will show you if you ask) is fresh like it was just out of the water. There's also a stall near there where you can get fresh young coconut for $5 each. Each coconut is big and has tons of water and good flesh to eat after. If you want to take a boat out to see the Arc, compare prices walking around the marina and there are dozens of men who will offer to take you there for as little as $15 per person. Enjoy!
I was so excited to travel to Cabo San Lucas for the first time, specifically to see the humpback whale. Being a long time Hilton Honors member, using points to defray some of the expense seemed logical. Driving up to and walking into the hotel I was impressed. The pool, beach and room views were perfect. That said, perfect ended there. The rooms have had some renovations, but obviously an older beach type construction. The staff were inattentive and really couldn't be bothered by the guests. It took me 45 minutes to get a drink by the pool and there were more waiters than guests. When I asked multiple times for a manager, I was told repeatedly there were none. The worst part of staying here is it's a $35 taxi trip to downtown or the airport, one way. You are basically stranded on the property or plan on spending $70 round trip and 30 minutes each way traveling. I would recommen syaying at newer hotel closer to town that wants your business.
