To celebrate our 43 wedding anniversary we decided to take a trip to somewhere new. So after seeing some breath taking photos of the golf course and the resort we found our spot. Only one question where the hell is Loreto Mexico ? It’s a quaint jlittle town, 5 hours drive north of Cabo. Thankfully it has a airport. The resort is about 45 minutes drive from the airport. The area reminded us a lot of Arizona except for that beautiful sea, and the resort and golf course are even more beautiful then the pictures.
Arriving at the resort we were greeted by the bellmen , offer a cold drink and then checked in. We got a sixth floor room overlooking the pools and the sea, and from the front corridor the golf course.
Now for our review, We like to start with the reservations department, two ladies there were very helpful and always got back to us with in a day for any of the questions we had . We had a lot of questions. So if you have a question ask Josefina or Luisa. They were both so helpful for us.
The golf course was under maintenance, greens being aerated. So you could only play one set of 9 holes. Monday and Tuesday the front nine was closed so you played back 9 twice at a reduced rate of $100 USD. The back nine has the course signature hole #17 overlooking the sea of Cortez, high on a bluff . Wednesday and Thursday you played the front nine twice. This is extremely challenging golf course. I used a caddy both days, Saul. The young man had an eagle eye and spot my ball always, really accurate with the yardage and did a great job reading the greens.
The Spa; my wife and I always do a spa day. The spa facility is gorgeous, the gym (workout area) is more than adequate for any workout you would be doing. Spa concierge was named Brenda and she will help you pick out the best Services for you. She’s not one of those people that just push the most expensive things they have. Brenda mentions all the specials they have going on , works with you and get you what you want and need. My wife and I decided an 80 minute couples massage. Our masseuses or Alexis and Julie, they quickly put both of us into a full state of relaxation. The 80 minutes went by way too fast, next trip here 2 Spa days are a must.
Housekeeping; most days we had a lovely young lady named Carlota Arias, she did a wonderful job cleaning the room, every day the beds had a new design on them. She would fold the bedspread differently, arrange the pillows and even leave us some wonderful towel sculptures. If we had a request we just had to leave a note written in my broken Spanish . Carlota could you please leave us a couple extra towels, a few more hangers.the items were always there when we got back to our room. This young lady was very hard working, always a big smile on her face.
The Activities team is very very good at there jobs. They are both entertaining and engaging, I believe they had some sort of interaction with every single guess during the visit. Whether at the pool or the beach they made sure you knew there is some sort of activity going on. The nightly shows were very entertaining, so if you are not eating at the Market cafe for dinner eat early or late but do not miss their shows. so thank you Duvis, Eduardo, Jocelyn, Hugo, Mayda, Ramon, Dayan,Centli, Karla, Chulin, Mauricio and Alex.
Front desk, check-in check-out was fast and efficient , Fernada seem to be there all day every day and always with a smile. Stephanie at the tour desk was the same way, very helpful. These two young ladies never seemed to be out of answers for any questions.
Dining at the resort’s four restaurant Market cafe, Danzante, Casa Mia, and the Clubhouse was always pleasant thing to do. Three restaurants at the Hotel one up at the golf course. three of them had the most incredible views .
The Clubhouse, a breakfast and lunch restaurant with incredible views. Nice menu, i would go for the Brisket tacos or pulled pork sandwich. This is where we first met Osvaldo, who was also a poolside server. he was spot on with his recommendations at the clubhouse and poolside .
Danzante is the resort's Steakhouse. A very tasty Menu and outstanding views. Addeli found the perfect table for the views, which my wife really enjoyed. Cris was our server that night and did a great job on recommendations. we wore brought a very nice dessert to celebrate our 43 anniversary ( see photos).
Casa Mia the Italian dinner house, open for lunch and dinner, it's also the kitchen for poolside service. the hostess Briceida always sat us so we had a view of the sea. Dario and Gergiro seems to be our servers each time we dine there.The food is good, service outstanding. the morning Hostess Ilse seated at very convene tables each morning, as my wife uses a cane to get around. our servers seem to be Marco, Eduardo and Santiago who also worked room service, which my wife used the morning I played golf. these guys always had a Mocha for me, A glass of Champagne for my wife and Tajin for my first course of fruit as we wore seated. The breakfast buffet has a very good selection of morning staples both standard American or Mexican breakfast dishes. If it was a more spirality dish you were looking all you have to do is ask Maria the grill chef. The dinner crew was just as good,Linda the dinner hostess always found a table with a great view for the entertainment, even the nights we dined at the other restaurants. Most nights we had the same crew Erick, Jose and Luis.always greeted with big smiles and they could not do enough for you.
we cannot say enough about this resort employees.
Even the GM goes out of his way to make sure you are having a great stay. Now once again here are our all star employees first the ladies in resverations, Luisa and Josefina. Server of the week Osvaldo and our favorite for all she did for us was Carlota the housekeeper.
we so enjoy our trip we will be right back in October for a Birthday trip.
Danzante Restaurant for Dinner...Pure Perfection!
Sep 11, 2021
We always upgrade to Danzante for dinner every night! Never disappoints with stellar service! Alonso, Chris & Rafael are quite the trio of awesomeness. Every evening they had our drinks awaiting us at the table and food recommendations that fit our group. You cannot possibly be more spoiled with these great men. From the flaming coffee, cocktails, personalized menus and smiles...they make our trip great every year!
I don't know the name of the one-man-band @ Danzante, but he was sooooooooooo great! We danced the night away creating our own dance floor! He continued to stay upon request.
David at the beach bar is incredible!
Danny the golf pro is a PRO! His team is still learning the ropes.
The downfalls this trip: Not great service at the pool or at breakfast. And
David at the
