"BEST CABO TRIP EVER!"
We just got back and I'm already planning my next trip to this resort! If this is your first time in Cabo, look nowhere else! You must stay here. Everything was perfect from the food, the VIEWS, the service, the music & the entertainment (we went for super bowl weekend & they threw the best super bowl party by the pool) . Everywhere we went had a spectacular view! It was like a dream! If you're dining at Spoon, the breakfast and lunch buffets, dine in Rubin & Lenin's section. They really took excellent care of us! When you're done with breakfast and you're headed to the pool, be sure to sit in Cruz's or Francisco's (may not have spelled his name right) section! They were awesome and always made sure we were taken care of! Also by the beach area there was Wilver & Jose-Luis. These guys really made us feel at home! I'm telling you I did not want to come back. And no I was not paid to write this review! One thing I also noticed that was superb, was the fact that every employee had a smile on their faces and genuinely enjoyed being at work, working there, and being around there co-workers. You can tell they treat their staff well and their staff carries that same treatment on to their guest, which I think is super important. Jorge our bell boy always greeted us with a hello, as did David who answered any question we had! I cant wait to come back. Thank you all for the magical experience!!!! Great Job! I wish I could give u guys 10 stars!
"Bachelorette Trip - February 2016"
Fernando was our waiter at the pool. He was incredible! He was so lively, entertaining, and friendly. He remembered our drinks and kept them coming! Awesome service!!
Alonso in the entertainment department went above and beyond to make sure I had an incredible time at the pub crawl for my bachelorette. He's super fun, enthusiastic, and was a great addition to our trip.
Paulina in the Xhale club is so receptive, knowledgeable, and sweet! Our trip wouldn't have been the same without her help.
Fernando, Alonso, and Paulina are definitely assets to the resort.
The food was awesome and the property is beautiful. They clearly put a lot of effort into maintenance and have an extraordinary eye for detail. It'll be even better when they're done with the construction.
I highly recommend the resort as a whole and can't say enough about how great the staff was to us.
"WOW... Best place ever in Cabo"
After 10 years of visiting Cabo this has been the best. Everyone from check in to room service and all the wait stay will spoil you.
All new and on beach and marina.. Two building with lots to do at each.. Enjoy... Worth it and more...
"Perfect location with Beautiful views"
This is my first time staying here. I felt we may be to old considering the advertising they use.We loved it all: the music,food,service and the location couldn't be better!!Its a contemporary styled resort a bit sparse in decor( still under construction)with unlimited potential.The location is prime with water activities : fishing,snorkeling,boat trips and unlimited shopping and many great bars and restaurants within walking distance.We ended up quite busy because the area had so much to offer.I can't wait to visit again and see the completed resort.I think the resort isn't just for the young party people,but for anyone over 18.
"Bachelorette party trip - did not disappoint!"
Five of us, from Vegas, where food, entertainment, and customer service are unrivaled. Therefore, we can be hard to impress.
The food. There was enough variety to please two vegetarians and the food was great. Not just "for an all-inclusive great" but really objectively we'd-have-been-happy-to-pay-for-it great.
The location. The resort is situated right on the marina, with the rear of the property facing the sea. Each side has a pool, so pick your favorite. The pool overlooking the sea has a DJ that, all four days, played a great lineup tunes. It wasn't far for us to find and get to scuba diving and snorkeling.
The activities. Because we weren't far from the marina, it was a short cab or water taxi ride to scuba diving, snorkeling, and the hotel-sponsored pub crawl, which was a total blast.
Now, for the best part - the people.
First, as XHale Club VIP members, we were greeted by the lovely Paulina, who fulfilled all our requests with a smile. Like our own personal executive assistant, Paulina kept us on our itinerary and made sure we had options.
At the pool, we were fortunate to meet Alonso and Maria, the "cruise directors". Some of our best memories were created with their help. From pool volleyball to herding cats through the pub crawl, they made sure everyone had a great time.
Then, Fernando. Oh, Fernando. The cocktail server who remembered EVERYONE's drink orders the entire trip, greeted us each day with a smile, and definitely one of the people we were sad to leave.
During our stay some of the building was under construction, waking us up with pounding in the room next door. However, we'll take one for the team because once the construction is complete, you'll never have to leave the property at all.
"Excellent Service and great location"
My husband and I stayed at this resort for 2 weeks and have never stayed at an all-inclusive this long before, the most was 10 days. While this resort is not yet completed it is one of the best we have experienced. We can't say enough about the service that we received here. If there was anything we needed it was looked after right away. The staff are exceptional and very friendly and professional right. The staff starting with the Concierge (Cristian), the front desk, buffet (Guillermo and all his staff), restaurants (all the waiters and Managers), bars, activities (Alonzo), housekeeping and security were always reading and willing to make our stay pleasant. We loved the view from our room (the balcony with table and chairs) where we could watch the fishing boats go out and come back everyday. The beds were very comfortable and the room spacious with a large bathroom that had a walk in shower, a tablet that we could use for internet and for ordering room service. For an all inclusive we still hadn't tasted everything on the menus in all the restaurants and the presentations were gourmet. The beach is great and is the only swimmable beach in Cabo. We booked the hotel for the location and amenities and were not disappointed or bored. The music during the afternoon was louder and would be the only negative that was bothersome. It was around the main infinity pool but you can always escape from it and go to the other building with the quiet infinity pool. There is snorkelling right in front of the hotel, probably about 3 dozen variety of fish (even saw an octopus one day). With the marina right there the options for tours, shopping, fishing etc. are plentiful and if you do want to go out to eat somewhere else for a change everything is pretty much within walking distance. If you want to go to San Jose del Cabo for a day, you can take the purple bus for 37 pesos one way, just outside the Puerto Paraiso shopping centre (again walking distance). You can't beat the location of this resort and the introductory pricing while it is being finished.
From the minute we walked in we were welcomed with open arms. Resort is clean, rooms spacious and staff was super friendly. Late dinner at the Italian restaurant was delicious. Head chef Victor and waiter Omar came out a number of times to check on us. Wink bar at the resort, provided an impromptu fire show by Arturo and staff !!
"Great Staff and Food"
Resort was very nice. Staff were excellent. Food was also excellent. A few kinks in service hat were quickly sorted out. Geared to a 30 to 40 year old party crowd but still okay for those in their 50s who can tolerate loud-ish music and some excitement. Not the place to go to if you want a quiet vacation. Location on the Marina was a bonus.
A few issues with our room plumbing was sorted out promptly.
Overall a very nice vacation resort.
"An great hotel with fantastic people working at it."
I can't say one bad thing about the hotel and the people who work their. The food was as good as it gets. The place is beautiful even though it's only about 85% finished. I will be booking is again when it's completely finished. A big plus only a few steps from town.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Resort from 1/29-1/2 in room 1322. The hotel is in a perfect location which is right on the Marina and is walking distance to all the shops and clubs around the Marina. The staff was super friendly and the drinks were premium. We stayed in one of the Exhale suites so we were able to drink Hennessy and some other premium brands... Mostly Hennesey . Housekeeping came twice a day one in the morning and one in the evening. The room service was bomb and we practically tried everything on the room service menu. They have a few restaurants that were open and we enjoyed those too. The music wasnt too loud at night as most of the festivities were over around 7-8. The hotel manager advised the hotel would be complete in a few months and I can only imagine how amazing it'll be when everything is up in running. Although everything wasn't open it was still a 5star hotel. Don't book anywhere else. Everyone was jealous when we told them where we were staying. Nothing but the best in Cabo!!!
There were some staff that made the resort so enjoyable. In particular, Carmen, who cleaned the room was so kind and great at her job.
The waiters at the rooftop pool (Fernando and Felix especially) and Cesar at Spumate were awesome!
The entertainment staff, Carmelita, Gabriel, Ricardo, and Adrian were incredible. They were fun, thoughtful, and always looking out for guests.
The resort was not entirely finished but nice. The push for other sales was a little annoying but not overbearing.
Honestly, it was the friendliness of the staff that made it a great stay.
"Amazing All Inclusive - No need to stay anywhere else!"
I just arrived home today after 3 nights here and I couldn't have been more pleased. I left completely pleased with my stay and knowing I would be back when the resort is finished.
Pools - there is a quiet pool and a more lively pool with a great view of the Arc and beach. The entertainment at the pool was awesome. There was never a dull moment! And the pool staff from Maria Jose to Alfonzo to Carmine....they were awesome! Volleyball and basketball and foam parties and dancers left you entertained and enjoying every minute. Also, the clientele was a nice range from 30-70 but a good chunk fell in the lower age range who wanted to have a good time at the pool. I met a ton of friends and can't wait to go back.
Food - PHENOMENAL. I can't wait to see the other restaurants. We ate at the Italian restaurant twice because it was that good. I live in a major metropolitan city and this was some of the best italian I've had! The buffet was also good when needed and room service was also exceptional. Definitely worth EVERY penny!
Location - can't beat it. You can walk to everything....clubs, beach bars, etc. Awesome.
Rooms - also amazing. Very roomy, great shower, great views, comfy beds.
Staff - everyone was awesome. From the front desk, to room service, to the servers at the restaurants, to the chef at the restaurant, to the bartenders....everyone was great. They organize a pub crawl every Saturday and Wednesday. We had about 20 of us and it was a ton of fun.
If you can't tell, this is one of the best all inclusive experiences I've ever had and I can't wait to go back. Welcome to the party is what they say and that is exactly what it was...one fantastic party in which you can take at whatever pace you want. I can't wait until it's all finished but since I'm sure others will catch on to this place...I'm sure it will be much more expensive when i go back!
"The Experience Leaves You Wanting More!"
I visited this resort with the understanding that it was not completely finished but I still think it was a 5-star experience. The location is great and places you near most of the must do places in Cabo. The view of the mountains and the marina were beautiful to wake up to every day. The food was absolutely perfect I was so sad that only a few restaurants were open because the food was that good and I wanted to know how good the other restaurants would be. The service from check-in was great and very personalized. Christian and Moses made sure that I was taken of and Hyesseride made sure that my dining experiences were top notch. I think this property only has the potential to get better once everything is open.
"Fun with a beautiful view and great location"
We stayed here from Saturday to Tuesday last week. The resort was probably slightly quieter then usual as the massive storm cancelled 5000 flights in the eastern US. Despite that the Saturday had a party atmosphere at the main party pool. It was a bit loud that day but the rest of our stay had music at a level that made speaking easy. The pools are both infinity pools with a great view of the ocean or the marina. The location is fantastic as it is a ten minute walk on the sand to Medano beach or a 10 minute walk along the marina to the party bars. The food was also very good. I've found that all inclusive resorts often have boring food but I enjoyed the food. He staff were excellent. Especially the pool waiters and entertainment staff. We spent a lot of time playing volleyball and basketball. I wish I was still there.
"Soon to be Cabos Best adults only"
Just back from a week at this new AM resort and really enjoyed the decor, the location, the beach and especially the quality of the food and beverages. Even the entertainment was good which is very rare for me to say when at all inclusives. There were finishing touches still in the works but the lack of gift shop or completed spa did not effect my stay. The rooftop nightclub should be spectacular when completed in February. There is a big pool for partying and a small pool for quiet but nice atmosphere. Bites restaurant at the small pool area was our choice for breakfast and lunch and even supper sometimes as it was as good there as the other three restaurants. The food and service there top notch. The other choices Seafood and Italian were great with the Mediteranian very mediocre. Coffee from the coffee shop was by far the best and it was open 6 AM TO 10 PM. I booked fishing right outside the resort with the charter who had the most flags (each describes type and quantity of fish caught that day upon return to marina ) the pool is right above where many of their slips are located. We caught 2 good size Wahoo and Dorado. We were surrounded at one point by two boats pulling in Marlin at the same time. Carlos with Gaviotos can help you share a charter for about 110 each. Oh right this wasn't to be a fishing review..sorry. Best steak was the fillet at Bites, had a good t-bone and a bad rib eye at the others. Really good Mahi Mahi at fishnets. Grey goose and DJ TEQ on tap with several beers to choose from. All that for bargin rates due to resort new and not 100% complete. Best of all was staff all friendly, happy and accommodating. No lineups at bars or restaurants. Please remember tips are not really included and are very much appreciated. We will surely return before long.
"Jewel of CABO!!!"
This is by far the best resort in Cabo for many reasons.
Most importantly the staff genuinely wants to make sure that your stay is enjoyable! Trust me.
Location, location, location is the best you could imagine, seated with the vibrant Marina on one side and a swimmable beach on the other. This gives you the opportunity to bask in the sun and cool down in the ocean water or take a short walk to shops, restaurants and town. We have not been to Cabo for years because you always have to make a sacrifice of too far from town or no swimming in the ocean. This location allows both!
Special credit goes to Jorge Martinez the Resident Manager for his vision to see this property through to brilliance. He has passion for the overall experience of every guest, salute! Other outstanding staff members to mention are in activities, Alonso and Farre, masters of the pool party. The Dailey Method workout in the morning with Laura was the best resort workout my wife and I have every experienced. In food service, Guillermo was a star so much so my wife wanted to take him home with us.
We are now planning a large group adventure trip to return this November. We feel 110% confident that This is the ideal location for us to live life and have some fun! I can't wait to hear those words again "Welcome, how may I make you stay here take your breath away?"
"All girls birthday trip"
There were 7 women that stayed at the resort exactly 2 weeks ago. Beautiful resort with breathtaking marina views. I give the staff 10 stars as they always greet you with a smile and are very courteous. We love Giovanni, Fernando, Sona, Uriel, and Roberto, just to name a few. Believe me, you will be spoiled. Resort is in a great location to walk to town, nightlife and bars. I'm already looking at returning before end of year. d Funny, when we landed at the airport and told our driver where we were staying, he said "you'll leave the resort speechless", oh my.
"Most beautiful location"
We stayed here for one week. We were celebrating our anniversary and were pleasantly surprised with the larger room, we had rose petals in the shape of a heart. Very nice of them. The meals were all good and the service of all staff was amazing. Shout out to some were Felix, Cruze., Sergio, Paulina, forgetting names right now sorry , but bartender in xhale lounge was very nice and helpful with questions about cabo area. The resort was not fully open in all areas, they must get railings and elevators to the ocean top pool . We will return again in the future and I'm sure it will be fully up and running.
"Girls Birthday Trip!!!"
Very amazing property that sits directly on the marina. All rooms have an amazing view of marina. The service is top notch and the restaurants are very gourmet. I was even impressed of the presentation of the room service meals. Although, the resort is not 100% finished, I did not feel like I personally lacked any amenities except for the use of the spa. But that's not a big deal for me. The big pool was very lively with music and a DJ daily. We also enjoyed the setup the resort had for the NFC and AFC Championship game. My room was very comfortable and loved how the king bed face the floor to ceiling window. I would love to come back again in the next 6 months. I truly loved this property. It was the right size and not too big. Can't say enough about the service, especially in the Xhale Club. That team was very attentive and greeted us by name daily.
"Not completely open yet but doing a fantastic job!"
Had a wonderful experience! The resort is not completely renovated and open yet, but everything so far is great! The food presentations were beautiful and delicious. Staff and service are the best part! Some names to mention as excellent are: Ricardo (waiter), Irvyn (security), Alain (bar/waiter), Fred (bar), Cecilia (massage) Everyone who works her goes out of their way to provide to you whatever you like! And, with a smile! Food choices and entertainment were limited but that is understandable based on occupancy. Thanks for a wonderful vacation!
"Boutique 5 Star Hotel with killer views"
We stayed from 18th to 25th January 2016 and had a fabulous time!
As Canadians with a horrendous exchange rate we took advantage of the cheap deals on offer for this newly opened property and we were not disappointed.
There are many things that qualify the hotel for 5 star status, from the unexpected turn-down service to the incredible restaurants and the amazing service.
The location is unbeatable with views over the marina that can hold your attention for hours from the quite pool and views of the ocean from the party pool that are as good as from any other hotel in Cabo.
The two infinity pools were great - refreshing in the January heat (29 degrees while we were there) and extremely social. Who needs a swim-up bar when the waiters deliver your drinks to you in the pool! Impeccable fun service abounded. Our waiter in the party pool was Francisco who was extremely friendly and attentive but all the waiting staff were incredible.
The music at the party pool was much better than I expected after reading some earlier reviews. It was a little loud but got everyone in the mood for the party.
The daytime entertainment team were so much fun and so friendly. Cami and Adrian stood out - so friendly - and I could watch Cami dance salsa all day long!
The food in all the restaurants (yes they are all open) was flawless and the ocean view location of the Mediterranean, Seafood and Italian restaurants was perfect.
The rooms were the equivalent of a high end Vegas hotel - modern, with clean lines and with everything you need for your stay.
No place is perfect, especially just after opening but there were only a few things that were less than 100%.
The first time we used room service using the supplied iPad it didn't arrive. But once we told the concierge they fixed the issue with that iPad and we had many meals in our room that had no issues whatsoever.
The nighttime entertainment was somewhat under par for a 5 star resort. I'm sure this will improve in the coming months as they are building the nightclub currently and were close to opening a tequila bar on the waterfront just as we were leaving.
The Exhale VIP Club on the top floor was still under construction and, until this is finished, it is not worth paying an extra $500 or so for an upgrade.
We had an awesome time at Ultra Luxury Adult Only Cabo Resort and met some wonderful new friends who also had a great time. it is more of a boutique hotel than a tropical resort but if you get the chance to go to this place while it is still at a reduced price then go for it. You won't regret it!
My wife and I are currently here at Cabo San Lucas. I don't know where to begin about how awesome this resort is.
Some people are saying it will be better when it's done, but honestly everywhere you want to be is 100% construction free. And of course when it is done, it's going to be 5X more money!
The food is outrageous, the drinks and booze are top notch, the staff are very professional.
I've been at 5 star resorts before, but this one is as good as a 5 star can be.
The rooms are insane and the options on the iPad for ordering services seem to be endless. They even have a pillow menu for you to choose from.
Everything I have ate here has been top notch. The steak is as good, if not better than the Keg steakhouse!
The breakfast is literally the best tasting I've ever had.
And to top it off, the food is completely agreeing with our digestive systems.
The hotel isn't on city water, they have a massive filter and purifier system and get the water directly from the ocean.
The pools are fantastic, and extremely fun! Especially the beach club pool. The music is loud with great bass! The marina pool is quiet and relaxing. The beach is small and quaint, and honestly quite perfect to sun tan on!
An amazing resort! Get here while the price is low!
"Great Location, Great Food, and Great Value."
My wife and I just got back from a week long trip to Cabo San Lucas. We had a fantastic trip and enjoyed the hotel so much we hardly left the resort, even though it was in a fantastic location with things to do all around.
As outlined in previous reviews, yes, there was still some construction happening, but we knew we were paying a discounted rate because of this construction and the fact that it is brand new so we were not bothered by the relatively minimal amount of construction that was happening. I think it's safe to say that once the construction is fully complete and the resort has been opened for a few months that the rates that they charge will start to be increased as the hotel has a lot of positives going for it.
First, the location is fantastic if you like being in the action. Our favorite spot was the quieter pool overlooking the marina where you can kick back and either have some drinks or read a book while watching the boats (and resident seal lions) come and go throughout the day. The sunsets from this pool were amazing and very relaxing. The restaurant, Bites, right off of this pool had excellent food, and the lobby bar also right off of this pool is a great spot to have some drinks before dinner. Previous reviews complained of constant "techno" thumping throughout the resort, but we definitely didn't feel that way about this part of the hotel - I think it would be more accurately described as "soft house" music which we enjoyed and found to be relaxing. Given the action of the marina with party boats and fishing boats when we closed the room blinds and the doors we were surprised at how much noise was kept out, but having said that if you're looking for complete calm and quiet on your trip then this might not be the spot for you.
The main pool looking onto the beach and ocean definitely was louder, but again wouldn't refer to it as techno, but instead more top 40 type music with some house. A good vibe, great view, and fun place to be if you're looking to party, but we just preferred the quieter pool most days. The resorts beach was nicer than we were expecting with a nice clean beach and awesome views. Some local huts/shacks are set up there, but in time once construction is complete I imagine they will come down.
The second main thing that the resort has going for it is the food. The freshness, quality, and variety was excellent. Bites was great for all meals, the breakfast buffet off the main pool had an excellent spread, and the Italian restaurant was absolutely delicious and we ate there four of the nights it was so good. The chefs and managers we met really cared about their quality and presentation, and the wait staff were all great at delivering a pleasant experience. The Mediterranean restaurant and other beach snacks were also great as well.
All in all we'd be happy to return, and recommend Ultra Luxury Adult Only Cabo Resort to others looking for great food, a great central location close to the action, and an overall upbeat and friendly vibe.
