Cabo Azul Resort Review

On the beach in San José del Cabo, the lobby of Cabo Azul is still partially under construction at this writing, but you would never know it because this chic, whitewashed property is so peaceful that it could be destined to be one of Los Cabos' top hotels. Featuring a taco bar and a sushi lounge to complement popular Javier's Cantina & Grill, which overlooks the water, this hotel-and-time-share hybrid, despite the sophistication and elegance, has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere with spacious one- to three-bedroom villas and more than a dozen giant penthouses. You'll find that most of the action is centered on the giant asymmetrical pool, complete with a swim-up bar. A salon and fitness center, and full spa facility round out the perks.

    Amazing experience

    We stayed at Cabo Azul for a wedding, and we cannot think of a single thing that would have made our stay at Cabo Azul more memorable or better in any way. The service was phenomenal, very friendly and accomodating staff; the rooms, pool areas, overall grounds are kept up so well, we felt like we were literally in paradise. Absolutely gorgeous resort, with a fantastic poolside happy hour that really made us feel like we were on vacation. We will most definitely return to Cabo Azul.

    Cabo Azul Resort & Spa Review

    Cabo Azul is a time share not a 4 star hotel, and this comes across loud and clear - the clientele are not what one would typically find at a 4 star hotel. Cabo Azul is offering deep discounts to attract potential owners and it shows.

    Front desk staff were barely courteous and unresponsive to concerns I raised regarding privacy issues - i.e., a surprise visit by housekeeping turndown service at 9:40 pm when I was fast asleep - (imagine being awakened by all the lights turned on and finding someone in your room and two other incidents that left me feeling uneasy and my privacy invaded.

    I booked here because of Fodor's recommendation which I now note is quite old, written when Cabo Azul first opened. Fodors should be recommending hotels NOT time shares.

    The restaurant food was marginal at best.

    I feel I've been had - by Fodors, whom I've trusted for decades.

    My stay was unlike any experience I've had in other 4 star properties.
