    After deciding on a location for my birthday getaway, I searched for an all inclusive resort, my first one, that would be on the beach and still have quiet. I was not disappointed. Upon arrival, our temperature was taken and our luggage disinfected. Our temperature was taken every time we returned to the resort. We were upgraded to a premium suite for our last two nights as a birthday gift from the Marketing and Sales Director, after I toured the property with him as a travel advisor. You have to make reservations for dinner in the three restaurants. The guacamole in the Mexican restaurant was the best I’ve had in years. The Italian restaurant had alternatives to pasta, which was great for a pescatarian. The drinks were great as well. The buffet alternated between two locations if you didn’t want a fine dining experience. There is a swim up bar with a mini snack bar that served hamburgers and hotdogs daily. They were constantly cleaning and the guests kept their distance In the pools. There is a separate area for smokers. Staff were very attentive and after a day of asking for bottled water, I had some delivered daily, automatically.

    Great landscaping

    We definitely are not all-inclusive people. That being said, this hotel seemed to have everything we wanted in San Jose del Cabo other than the AI so we booked it. The positives about this place is great staff, great grounds (pools, landscaping, etc.), good location, and good amenities. The not so positive things were the need for extra staff at breakfast. The food was good though. Realizing that in this time of COVID things are different, more personnel were needed in serving the food at breakfast (not the table service staff). Basically, there was one or two people trying to serve everything (fruit, sides, preparing eggs, etc.)--made for quite the wait. Also, I don't think the room that we occupied hadn't been stayed in in quite some time; as the air conditioning unit leaked condensed water when turned on (that was fixed right away), the water to the toilet was shut off (I turned the valve on myself), and the drainage in the sink was very slow (we put up with that--not a big deal). Honestly though, we were just glad to be able to travel in these trying times and do appreciate the service we received at this hotel.

    This is my first all inclusive. The grounds are very nice, on a beach, and close to town (not CABO) and airport. While this is definitely NOT A 5-STAR resort, it's a good bargain for the price. The people are very nice and go out of their way to accommodate you. However, it would generally take five tries to call guest services or room service to actually get a response. The food was some of the worst I have had. If you are fine with eggs for breakfast and a burger with fries for lunch, you will be fine. But if your expectations are any higher you will be very disappointed. The food served at both the Italian and Mexican restaurant were just not palatable. I suppose I should have known given the price. I probably made my money on drinks but ended up going out for dinners. The buffet (an alternative to the restaurants) was just plain awful. Just understand what you are in for given the price and you will be fine.
