Sometimes when you do something on the fly, it really works out. We moved to El Gonzo at the last minute when a booking somewhere else wasn't satisfactory. And what a good decision!! This is a cool, unique place with a great music vibe and awesome rooftop pool. We actually stayed an extra day in Cabo (thanks Southwest for no change fees) just to spend more time here. Highly recommend it!

Beautiful infinity rooftop pool and hot tub merge seamlessly with Sea of Cortez below. 100 foot long pool perfect for laps. An appropriate mix of jazz, rock, calypso, Reggie etc. completes the scene. Two minute boat ride from hotels dock to the beach club at the mouth of the harbor, Protected beach perfect for more swimming. A short walk to the outside of the jetties brings you to the open seas surf. Very good Tacos and guacamole at the beach club and ceviche at the hotel restaurant. The Bars Pinot noir even pleased my characteristicly French girlfriend. The Borracho Sailor down the street from El Ganzo offers an excellent local cuisine option. Our Rooms view consisted of the harbor and marina in the forground and the sea beyond, Bathroom was well designed with a separate toilet nice sized shower and a tub placed in the middle of the room with a view of the sea, well suited for an aquatic adventure of your choosing.

This is one of those WOW places. Amazing and very creative boutique hotel set in the midst of the marina at Puerto Los Cabos, very close to the historic village of San Jose del Cabos. The service is first class, and food and drink are of high quality. 'Luxury with a creative twist'. Nothing beats sitting on the porch with a latte first thing in the morning watching the 'comings and goings' of the fishing boats, or sitting poolside on the roof enjoying a drink as the lingering sun sets with the mountains as a backdrop.

This hotel has decided that it is the hip, artsy, hotel, like a W or similar. The problem is, that except for some art exhibits in the lobby and halls, there is nothing hip, or fun about the hotel. The rooms are OK, but the staff seems very disinterested and disengaged. At every meal we had to go find a server to order, or request a menu, or another drink. We had a few discussions with the desk staff, and in both instances, it could be described as adversarial and mindlessly following rules that seemed inconsequential. For example, our college age daughter visited us for the day and we were told she could only go to the restaurant or the beach, not the pools, though the pools were nearly empty? For what this hotel charges per night, there are many superior options.

Facilities are incredible and good value for money versus what you get in Cabo St. Lucas. The staff aren’t terribly attentive, the wifi doesn’t work at the Pool Bar, and several times at breakfast they got our order wrong, which is quite important when you have a food intolerance. I had hoped the waiter would have remembered by the 3rd meal, especially considering there was only around 20 other guests staying in the hotel at the time. Even at the pool bar we ordered the Amor Tuna Rolls which came out with cheese, although the menu says the dish doesn’t have cheese. The waiter seemed genuinely annoyed when we said we can’t eat cheese and the menu doesn’t state the item included it. They ended up replacing it with the actual dish from the menu, without any apology. The 24 hour gym is a good feature, and the views from the pool bar are spectacular. I’d stay here again. Hot tip: If you’re bed creaks so much that it wakes you up when you turn during the night, complain to reception and they will address it and you’ll have a great night sleep the next night!
