CABO VILLAS BEACH RESORT - July 2010
We visited 7/14 Ė 7/24, with most of our group coming in on 7/17. The check-in was very smooth. I was pleasantly surprised as I honestly thought we would have some check-in problems with our large group of 20 this year. The free margaritas were very good also. Plus, Baja Brewing Co. was giving away free pizza samples when we were checking in. Everyone in our group was very happy with their room location, their view, and the amenities in the room.
Cabo Villas is a very clean, modern, friendly and accommodating resort quite close to most everything in Cabo, and is right on Medano Beach. Going into town is very easy, just a short walk. There are three pools and this year we spent a lot of time at the pools. They have a very impressive spa with many favorable features. My wife and I both had massages and were very pleased. A small mini-mart has been added recently across from the putting green. The inventory is limited since they just started, but it is handy and we used it for some basic items.
The grounds are always super clean because they have a large staff that is constantly sweeping, brushing, washing, shining, etc. everything all over the resort every day. Also, our rooms were well-kept; the maids did a good job every day. The entire staff was always friendly and helpful if we had any requests. Management (Adam) was also obliging in our meetings and Maria, Reservation Manager, gave us supportive ideas for future reservations, Richard was helpful in sales, Martine provided great service at the pool grill/bar, and Julie at the front desk corrected several errors entered by a maid on one inventory list.
The Baja Brewing Co. has the best view of Medano Beach and the food is delicious. Many in our group spent a lot of time there. This has been a very good addition to the resort. In fact, we were all so suitably impressed that we have added them to our Top 12 Recommended Restaurant List here on our travel website.
My only suggestion is the need to bring back the pool towel police. The week started out with not many saving spots with towels. By late week 90% + spots were reserved with towels with no bodies anywhere from 45 minutes to 3 + hours. Take one person from your cleaning brigade and have him or her just clean in the pool areas and give him or her additional towel police responsibility with a 30 minute limit on reserved spots when he or she isnít cleaning.
We are owners and it seems we like it so much we upgrade every year. If you want a great location, a relatively small resort, with upscale amenities, and a friendly hospitable customer oriented staff, Cabo Villas Beach Resort is the spot for you and your family and friends!
