TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

My husband booked this hotel for 2 nights for our early anniversary trip and our first couple getaway without our infant and toodler children. My husbamd wanted to surprise because he knew I liked the pictures online but I preferred the all inclusive resort for better savings. However, my husband wanted to sourgke Because we haven’t had a vacation since 2016.... We had the 1 bedroom terrace with views of the harbor! (We paid over 300 a night) It was absolutely gorgeous but this is the only thing positive about the hotel stay. In our room there was a constant motor sound, I called the front desk and a maintenance man came and said that he believes the sound was from the laundry department below.. they offered to place me inanother room. I took the offer simply because I am a light sleeper and I wanted silence Bc this would be my first night not waking to my children in the middle of the night. Later that night while preparing for bed, we could hear every single word our neighbors spoke. They were young people having a good time but it was too loud! And I Believe the thin walls did not help. After about 20 minutes of constant loud talking and laughter from the neighbors, I called the front desk to ask if a courtesy call could be given. Nothing happened. So I asked that we move back to our former room with the loud motor sound they agreed. When we made it back, the room felt warm, but I adjusted the air and prepared for bed. About an hour later the room had not cooled down. Called the front desk again and the maintenance man came.. he didn’t do anything but look at the thermostat and said give it 10 mins and the room will cool down. 10 minutes later. The room was still hot and I just didn’t bother calling. I slept without the sheets that night.the next morning I called them again and had the maintenance man come by the room twice Bc the room was still hot. I refused to spend another night in heat, by this time I was so fed up with the hotel! But I didn’t want to upset my husband especially since he had booked the room to surprise me. Also, the food was not the best, I ordered sushi. Afterwords I got really sick but I’m unsure if it was the sushi or the heat/lack of A/C and my sinuses. Either way I didn’t order their sushi again. In all honestly all I order was fruit after I got sick. Another con of the hotel is that their service is EXTREMELY SLOW at the restaurant and room service. It took them 45 minutes just to bring me fruit. Keep in mind that this is a small hotel with about 70 rooms. Also there is no concierge desk, so you will not be able to book excursions. The hotel is very secluded with nothing within miles of the hotel. They also have a rule that you cannot being outside groceries (water,fruit) or food to the hotel! I have never heard of such!!! Needless to say, we were happy to leave the hotel and I will NEVER return. I hate that we wasted 2 our vacations days here... however, we did have 2 more days at a much better hotel. It was the same price and WAYYYY better!

Joaquin Omar, Israel, & Keny made our lunch and time spent swimming with our lab puppy one of our best days in Los Cabos. The food, service and setting are awesome. Bring your swimsuit and appetite. The crew will take care of the rest. Try the watermelon appetizer and sea bass entree. You won’t be disappointed.

We stayed at Hotel El Ganzo before we checked into Secrets. We were so impressed and in the end probably would have preferred staying there the whole time. The staff was wonderful. You arrive and are served this amazing smoothly with a spicey salted die for. The you get to your room and there is an exquisite dessert waiting for you. The rooms are beautiful, each one unique and some with art installations. The hallways are lined with unique art installations. The pool deck is amazing with a floating glass jacuzzi and birds flying overhead all day. There are shaded cabanas and comfy chaise lounges. There's a bar and food available on the pool deck. Beautiful music plays while you take in the views and enjoy the sunshine. There are bikes you can use to tour the marina which is filled with art installations. Theres a ferry which takes you to two different restaurants or the beach which has chaises and umbrellas for your tanning pleasure. Food can be ordered beach side. The hotel restaurant was nice, our service was soso but the food was good. The staff was always friendly and ready to assist you. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend it.

I stayed four nights in the Hotel El Ganzo. It is located in San José del Cabo in front of the Marina. The hotel is stylish and has a great roof top terrace woth an infinity pool. So it can get quite windy. The rooms are comfortabel with a hot tube and a small balcony. There is a little boat that brings you to the beach club in front of the hotel. Swimming is possible here. Breafast is good but service a bit slow. In general I can recommend the hotel.

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!
