We have just returned from a 1 week stay. Although this elegant Resort is not finished it promises to be one of the very best. Our stay was the best of anywhere in Mexico. The staff was helpful and gracious, attending to all of our needs in a timely fashion. The restaurant overlooking the Sea of Cortez was first class, not just the view but the quality of the food and the presentation also.
Good job !! We are anxiously awaiting our return next year.

This place is terrific! We stayed in 2007 & returned this year. Lots of construction durring our first visit but now much better. Only about 3 miles out of Cabo in one of the area´s most exclusive waterfront neighborhoods. Accomidations are first class with warm Mexican hospitality.

a. Yes the cost is relatively low, but you get for what you pay for.
b. They use cheap alcohol – I was not happy about that
c. And the amount of alcohol is tiny
d. Ask for their “premium” alcohol which is safer and you don’t get sick and the price of the drink is higher than US standards
I sent this information to the resort and a few hours later they responded that they fixed pretty much everything in the document.
