Property is on the smaller side of others in the area. Makes it nice because it’s not overly crowded, there was never any difficulty getting into any restaurant, and it was always easy to get a chair around the pools. Food was great in the dinner restaurants and average at the buffets. Alcohol was plentiful and staff was always around waiting to take your next order. Beach area is beautiful once you get past the local vendors wanting to sell you their stuff. Most took a no easily and it was peaceful after that. Only negative is not a whole lot to do in the evenings after dinner. They have some small shows but nothing worth writing home about. You can go into Cabo pretty easily but it would have been nice to have some more late night options, especially indoors, because the wind was cool at night. Overall a great resort. There are some places it could be upgraded but still very nice.
