THEFT BY HOTEL STAFF The absolute worst service we have ever experienced in all areas of the hotel. ** THEFT BY STAFF ** We had out items stolen by hotel staff during our stay (cell phone and wallet), and management simply denied any responsibility and refused to cooperate with police. Ronald (manager) requested the police park off-site as to not give a bad impression. During the remainder of our stay, several of the more friendly employees told us "off the record" that the hotel had proof that a member of their staff was responsible for the theft, (it was on the security footage) and he had not shown up for work since the incident. However, to protect the image of the hotel, management denied any knowledge of the incident, leaving us with $1000's of dollars of stolen property/cash and hours worth of inconvenience to replace credit cards, IDs, cell phone etc. Although there were a few employees who went above and beyond to help us out, in general, the staff are completely incapable of completing basic tasks such as coming to the table to take an order, bringing the right food to the table or dropping the check when asked. A typical meal went like this: Seat yourself as there were 8 people standing there, but nobody to greet you. Get your menu from someone else's table, spend 20-30 minutes trying to flag one of the 8 peoples attention to place the order. Then wait... typically 30 minutes more for the first course or coffee. It was a miracle if even after the 30 minutes the food/drinks would even show up. It was an effort to get anything in this place. After our room was "cleaned", the surfaces were sticky from food and drinks being there, and we had a half full coffee cup sit on our dresser for 4 days. This hotel is beautiful, and the concept is great, but we will never be back after such a negative experience, and I would NEVER recommend spending a fortune to stay in a hotel where you cannot trust the staff with your personal property.

The overall design of the Hotel El Ganzo and its location are great for a relaxing getaway - my wife and I spent three days/nights there - but it lacks the attention to detail that would make it an exceptional property overall. First the good things: -- Hotel layout is good with its two pools and its beach property (which is across from the main property accessed by hotel pontoon taxi). -- Rooms are well-designed, comfortable and good-sized. We stayed in a jacuzzi room which had a nice patio and jacuzzi which we used once (kind of) -- The two pools are nice and well-designed. We enjoyed both of them but the hotel was fairly empty during our mid-week stay. Not sure if we would have enjoyed them as much if the hotel was more crowded. -- The gym was adequate. Now, the bad: -- It's marketed as an art/artist hotel but that detail is poorly executed. There are some attempts at artistic elements but they come across as very quick and cheap attempts to deliver creative flavor and instead are just, well, tacky for the part - e.g., painter's tape (some of it peeling on the ends) forming geographic patterns on some walls just don't do it for me but hey, art is a personal thing...Oh, and the cartoon paintings of Willy Wonka on the front of the hotel, well, never mind... -- Service needs a serious upgrade except for the service at the beach property which is good. At the main hotel property, there seems to be more than adequate staffing but no one seems to know who is doing what - e.g., an hour after we received our room service order, we were called and told someone would be coming to pickup our trays. We waited up but no one ever came. A request for water or more coffee at the main restaurant could take 15 minutes or longer - no exaggeration! At the rooftop pool, two different staffers might ask you to sign the same bill twice... -- I hate to say this, but we had one waiter at breakfast who was obviously trying really hard to impress us with his grasp of English that he misunderstood much of what we were saying and vice versa, thus making each breakfast experience very frustrating. I don't think he had much service experience and his overconfidence really worked against him, or maybe I should say, against us! -- The food isn't what it's marketed to be - it's okay but far from the great quality the hotel touts. The sushi rolls aren't made with sushi rice and the rice is undercooked. And all they put cream cheese in all the sushi rolls - even when the menu description for that roll doesn't say anything about cream cheese. They drown their sashimi dishes in an overpowering salty citrus sauce that ruins the sashimi. Ugh! -- Lastly, the staff all seemed like very nice people but could be better trained to be more proactive instead of being reactive to guest requests. I'm sure this is due to lack of experience but management should really implement better standards and training. I kept seeing staffers walk around with clip boards intently checking things and taking notes. The property would have felt more warm and welcoming if those staffers would have looked up to offer a smile and check on their guests. Overall, it's a nice property with the potential to be exceptional but far from exceptional in its current state. There are other reviews similar to mine so I honestly wonder if management wants to do what it takes to make El Ganzo an exceptional property or if it's fine with the way things are, "just fine" overall.

This is a very eclectic place. Arts, sustainability, music, etc. Not a chain, but very good customer service. The roof top infinity pool is the bomb! Unbelievable views. Great bar on top. Rooms are very comfortable and all have great ocean/harbor views. Restaurant was very good, though the selections were somewhat limited. Food was very good. No children, great couples getaway. Laid back vibe.

Sometimes there are no words... do yourself a favour and experience the energy, hospitality and exquisite views from El Ganzo. Such a different experience here, tasteful and universal art, a bar pool to die for.. it seems like nature even cues the best sunset and sunrise for the occasion... staff have warm smiles reflecting their warm hearts. Fantastic location to the beach and surrounds of Cabo. This lil hotel is provided the biggest experience. The rooms are comfortable, the bedding superb, and always returned to a lil treat or surprise waiting for us!! We will be back. And cannot recommend this space enough! Thank the Lord for original thought...

We did not get to stay here over night but we did get to enjoy the beach area for a day. We stayed in town for our 6 day stay but still wanted a nice beach area to sit at for a day with good accommodation. A few day prior to heading here.. We stopped by the marina.. Just to see if there were any fish brought in.. Pretty slow..So we went right by El Ganzo ..My daughter said "that place looks like it would be fun" that time, I did not realize we would be hanging out there :) I found out about being able to use the beach area by someone on TA (Thank-you Rocky G) I called the hotel that morning just to make sure and to make sure they would have availability for us. And they did. Pulled up to the hotel and they have valet parking, nice. The young guys that helped us with this was a sweet person, wish I would have caught his name. I told him what we were doing and he asked how old my daughter was I told him 15. He told us that we can't use the pool because it is an adult only hotel :( but we could use the beach. But what was super wonderful...he took us for a tour of the pool area this was OK'ed by his boss. OMG what a beautiful setting! The view from here was amazing. All of a sudden I was wishing my DD would be 18. She thinks this is where she wants to stay now when she does turns 18 :) Headed back down stairs and there is a door opened on the floor that leads down to a recording studio ..sweet !! The grounds are beautiful; it looks like they grow some of their own product for preparing meals Anyway, I think we paid about $1000 pesos for the 2 of us. We jumped on to one of their pontoon boats and headed over to their beach area. Pretty much had pic of lounges with umbrellas (maybe 15 or so of these) it was still quiet. They brought towel down and placed them on our loungers. Was already quite warm we ordered a few waters and seltzers. We were in the water out of the water most of the day to cool down. The beach had nice sand and swimming area. We could watch the boat come and got out of the fishing marina. A strip of land divided (maybe a breaker) the beach and the fishing area. Was very pretty lined with green grass, palm trees and hammocks. You could look back at the hotel Soon after we arrived we ordered a fruit plate. Not sure if it was on the menu, but I think they ended up getting the product from the hotel restaurant and bring it back over to the beach. Very nice!! Later on in the day we went by the bar area which had a nice seating area and was shaded. DD ordered a burger and fries and I just had fries with a coconut mojito. We drank so many bottles of water and seltzer we weren’t very hungry. We were one of the last one to leave the beach and thoroughly enjoy our down time. When we paid the $1000 pesos at the front desk, it was not just to use the beach , this money went towards our drinks and food. This was a win win for us  Nice restrooms and I believe they had showers in them!?! They for sure had outdoor showers. Back on to the pontoon and headed back to our hotel for a swim in the pool. Stayed for about 6 or 7 hours.
