El Ganzo was AMAZING. The service was outstanding. The food was fresh and full of flavor. The views and infinity pool were a dream! I slept better than most hotel beds. Great water pressure in the shower. Everything about this place hit the nail on the head. Every time we go to Mexico we stay somewhere different, not anymore, this is the place!

Very good 8.0
Pricey but beautiful hotel, Amazing pool
Very cute hotel, amazing pool and hot tub, nice location near the beach with private beach club. But the food was very underwhelming and very overpriced. The spa facilities were beautiful but again services very overpriced and underwhelming. Overall a wonderful stay but not sure the value is worth the high cost.

Off the hook cool vibe
El Ganzo was a splurge for us. We have lusted after this place since we first discovered it three years ago driving around East Cape. The vibe is so cool but not snooty. The artwork is amazingly funk. They have a recording studio in the basement and play the artists on their tv channel. What’s not to love? But wait, there’s more! The roof top bar and infinity pool??? Cmon on!! You don’t have to be a guest to go and enjoy drinks and snacks up there so check it out. The room are elegant is a spate sort of way and all have a gorgeous view of the water and their beach club. We borrowed their bikes and cruised the marina, by the dolphin facility where you can swim with the. Check out Isla an unassuming restaurant that is so good and CHEAP and on the water!! I could go on and on but go check it out!!

Perfect hotel in an ideal location!
This is the place to stay in Cabo if you're looking for something other than an all-inclusive that's in a nice area. I unwittingly chose this hotel, not knowing that San Jose is the really nice, more interesting part of the Cabo area. The hotel is marvelous- very nice stuff, fabulous rooms, excellent location, and the rooftop infinity pool is just heavenly. I would recommend to anyone and cannot wait to return!!
Emily, us3 night trip with friends
Poor 2.0
No visitors or food allowed
I checked out early from this hotel. I have never experienced the ‘policies’ that they had at this hotel. I speak fluent Spanish so the issue was not communication. While checking in first of all they advised me that no food or outside drink could be brought into my room. While I understand that maybe they prefer that you eat their food, telling a guest that they may not bring food to the room is ridiculous. I lived in San Jose Del Cabo for 15 years and now regularly visit, I have friends who live there. A friend stopped by and the front desk called me, I said yes thank you please send her up, they said no, I assumed that I needed to go and greet her and walk her up. They told me that she wasn’t allowed in my room unless I added her to my reservation. I asked them when she left 30 mi utes later, (kind of as a joke, because I wasn’t planning on picking up any guys) what if I want to bring a boyfriend to my room? They said, he wouldn’t be allowed to enter the hotel.......I have never, ever heard of a policy that says you can not bring a person to your room. I spoke with the manager and plan on e-mailing the general manager. Ridiculous, I will never stay there again.

Worth the splurge
Fun, hip boutique hotel on the water. Attentive staff. Comfy rooms with great views. Fab rooftop infinity pool. Close to two farm to table restaurants about a 6 min drive and a 9 min drive to the art district.
