Our whole family enjoyed our stay. Staff was very nice and helpful. Beds were a little hard. We all agree we would love to go back again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bt0920 Great Resort
My husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort from 2/13/2014-2/16/2014 and we came from CA. The service was great and the activities kept us busy. I had an amazing time and definitely recommend it. My only concern is the care for the horses. The hotel sells activities and one of them is horseback riding on the beach. We had never done it so we decided to try it out early in the day. The horses look so tired and didn’t look very happy. I wish the resort invested in having these horses be healthy and allowing them days off to roam free since they sell the services to people coming to stay on vacation. I felt guilty after ridding the horse because I felt that the heat and the sand are so hard on them. That is an amazing activity but I recommend better care for the horses.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sharkey1 Pleasant Surprise in San Jose del Cabo
The pictures don not do justice to the grounds. Amazing plants and trees! Hats off to the grounds keepers. The best surprise was the bird sanctuary adjacent the resort. What a treat!
This is a quiet resort with a lot of seniors & Canadians galore. If
you want true peace & serenity book a main floor patio suite looking out to the adult pool and sanctuary. No loud music, bingo and PA system on that side. We had a main floor walk out room but it was too close to the "party pool" and way too loud. We found it necessary to go elsewhere and there were many fine places to relax away from the noise. We had a nice room and our
cleaning people were excellent.
For morning walks we toured the sanctuary. It has a decent paved path along the water. The old town was an easy walk and very pleasant to visit. We also walked to Mega many times and found all that we needed there. The view from the mall food court is a "must see". Beautiful!
Word of warning to smokers traveling to Cabo. We were three adults with four cartons of Cdn cigarettes. I was hauled off to a Customs office #pirates den# upon arrival. They charged me a $ 460.00 fine for the 4th carton. They wouldn't let me throw it out. They wouldn't charge me duty. They said they would fine me for all four #4# cartons if I refused to pay the $ 460.00. With five bandits standing around me I had no choice but to pay. I hope Mexico is proud of these fine employees. What an excellent experience on our first trip to Cabo! No small wonder that PV is so popular.
Truthfully I think we will return to the Baja but maybe by station wagon or old pickup truck next time . . .
