My husband and I have planned a trip for the end of July and we think we are staying at this all inclusive hotel, unless we find some place that looks better. Were looking for any kind of adive or thoughts about this place. Good pools? How are the beaches? Food? Drinks? Clean hotel? Rooms? Overall thoughts on the hotel? Thanks for the adive and help!
The place looks great and one of the newer resorts. Only thing I don't prefer is that it is on the Pacific Ocean side and usually the water is rough, so be careful of undertow. I usually stay on the inlet side by. The marina at Villa de Parma and have afternoon drinks at a place call the office that is right on the beach. Food is fresh and plentiful, so if you don't like the inclusive go out and eat., but most all the resorts I been to we're great. Have a great time in Cabo.

I've read somewhere just now that the only downfall is that you can't swim at the beach? Is that true?
Have you seen my review of PACIFICA? includes photo of the top pool which is wonderful.

How come you can't swim at the beach there?
you can't swim at most of the local beaches because of the undertow and/or huge waves, depending upon the season; there are many stories of tourists who thought they could handle it and never seen alive again.......don't risk it.
further around the coast on the eastern side, into the Sea of Cortes' it is much calmer and further up the coast, toward where I live, there are beautiful beaches with calm seas (see my Los Barriles page)
VM advice is so spot on, Pacific side is less swimming and I myself advise not to because of the strong undertow and rough waters that is only on the Pacific side because of the steep drop off. This is the reason that it is good fishing just a few miles off shore. Also remember that at the Lovers Arch, the tides come in quicky and you do not want to be caught off guard there also.

PACIFICA also has a free shuttle to town.
