11th Trip to Melia Cabo Real!

My girlfriend and I just returned from our 11th visit to the Melia Cabo Real and the service gets better every time we visit! The food and pool are really great but it's the workers at the Melia that really make it special! We have come to know and love the concierge, Roberto Ortega! He always makes our trips so special with his big heart and welcoming smile, even before when he was the bellman. This trip, we had two rooms and we wanted them next to each other and on the lobby level, which Roberto handled perfectly for us. He even had some "Welcome back" signs on our mirrors in our room that really made us feel special! Every time we needed something at the hotel, Roberto was always there to help us. The Melia is very lucky to have a person like Roberto as their concierge at the hotel and we will continue to return to the Melia Cabo real because of the great service we receive from the maids, waiters, bartenders...but especially because of Roberto! While I could mention just about all the waiters and bartenders for their great service, a few of them deserve special mention. For breakfast and lunch at Palapa, Arnulfo Morales always has been such a great waiter for us! He works so hard at pleasing everyone and his smile is contagious. He's the best of the best out of all the hotels we have ever visited! We have a special bond with Arnulfo now so please don't ever let Arnulfo leave! We also have received great service from Salvador over the years. He's always so friendly and is great at his job. We met Carlos for the first time and loved talking to him. He really seems to try hard and makes us and everyone feel happy. At dinner, we met Nety for the first time and loved him. He always was there to fill my wine glass and always made sure we were taken care of! Mario has become one of favorites when we go to Kujira or Terraza. He always does something special for us #flaming coffees, sake bombs# and we enjoy the show he puts on for us! Oscar is always smiling and happy to help us too! Finally, we met Selsan at Terraza and he really made us laugh with his stories and have a lot of fun at dinner! Our days would not be happy if we didn't see Adriana greeting every morning at Palapa with her lovely smile. She's the perfect hostess and always has a great attitude to start the day! If you’re drinking by the pool, Maria Elena has always been giving great pool service with drinks and always remembers our faces! I would not want to forget two bartenders that really stood out and made it very fun to sit and listen to them at the bars. Jesus Hernandez at the pool bar was so friendly and quick with our drinks. He was a blast to talk to and get to know...he's very nice! Eduardo at the lobby bar does a great job with all the people he has to serve and always has a smile for us. The waitress at the lobby bar, Monica was really friendly too! We decided to get massage for the first time and they were fantastic! You can have your massage outside and listen to the ocean and soft music while they massage you cares away. Special mention goes to Elena and Carolina who really know how to give a relaxing massage…we’ll go back to them next time! We can't wait to return with a few of our friends on Nov 28-Dec 4 for our birthdays and the main reason we return is the great service the Melia Cabo Real gives us! They should be so proud of the team of workers that do a fantastic job!

Nice

This hotel was wonderful. The staff does whatever you need. Shot out to Netta Spelled wrong I am sure. He was the best at the buffet. The pool is big the rooms are clean. Very relaxing. Food was good.

vacation with small kids

It is our second time at Melia and again the experience was great. The staff is great, the food is very good , the pool is great. The kids club is a great value. The staff is great and they take young kids, a great plus the room was very clean. The only thing is that the room comes either with one king size bed or 2 double beds. We took the 2 beds version because we have small kids, but it is kind of narrow for 2 adults i strongly recommend Melia Cabo

Decent Place / Wish it Was All Open

Melia is a decent hotel at a good price. Nothing really blew me away but for the price I paid I was ok with it. Not all of the restaurants were open every night. I guess they only are when the resort is full. I've stayed at other all inclusives that didn't seem like they were even half full but they kept all of the a la carte restaurants open. The other thing was room service was not included in the all inclusive which was a bummer.

Go to Edith's near downtown Cabo San Lucas. Restaurant was pricey but amazing.

Amazing staff - Food is meh

We visited the Melia Cabo Real from 5/23 to 5/25 for a wedding and had a great time! The staff could not be more accommodating...the lobby and pool bartenders were all very personable and attentive. We had a large group of "young adults" who came to Cabo for a party and they made sure we were all well taken care of! The staff at the wedding and the restaurants were all very nice as well but the food is below average in my opinion. I have been to many other all-inclusive resorts and have learned not to expect any gormet meals but this was worse than usual. Stay away from the Asian restaurant...especially if your looking for sushi! The best food there is the little burger stand by the main pool....surprisinlgly amazing cheese burgers! Overall this place is 4 star quality...everything about it was great aside from the 3 restaurants.

Plan on having a few dinners out...lots of amazing restaurants in Cabo but if you are a foodie definately stay away from dinner at the resort. The breakfast and lunch are ok.

Graduation present

Had an excellent time at Melia Cabo Real. The property is well kept up and is in a great location. Food was good and was diverse enough to satisfy all in our group. Pool was nice and clean and wait staff were very attentive. Take advantage of the staff at the tour desk. They are very helpful and do not pressure to book trips. Two helpful hints. If you need anything for your room, ask at front desk or call. Had a couple of times where needed some room supplies and were not left by housekeeping. When we called it was there in five minutes or less. Also make sure that you make dinner reservations before 4pm. Hard to get into certain venues if you do not make reservations.

Beautiful beach and views!

I've stayed at a couple all inclusive and this one is a great value. Beautiful resort. Staff are very helpful. The buffets were good and the Mediterranean restaurant onsite was delicious. Great pool bar, best burgers and quesadillas at the snack bar. the private beach was beautiful! Nice cove to swim in and snorkel. We went for a destination wedding and they did an excellent job! Beautiful set up, location and great service. Only complaints was room service has a service charge and going into downtown can cost $30 one-way..,better to rent a car or go with a group.

Good Cabo resort

The hotel is a little dated but the grounds are immaculate. the staff top notch and food was pretty darn good to boot. This is an old school Mexican resort and Cabo is old school Mexico city, so it works well for an old school Mexico traveler. No nightlife nearby so go for the relaxation, drinks and food. We had a good experience and would recommend to friends.

Nice family place

The property is 25 years old, and obviously not renovated. That having been said, everything we saw was meticulously maintained and clean. The Mexican architecture is also somewhat more timeless than a typical American resort, so it doesn't feel dated. Over all, we had a lovely time. The food was good for an all inclusive. They must bake all their own bread on site because it was WAY better than most hotels. The pool was large and shallow -- perfect for my daughter. The kids club was very well staffed by energetic and sweet young women. You should know that the pictures showing a protected cove and breakwater must be 25 years old. The shifting sands have reclaimed the artificial cove and there is NO swimming in the ocean. This is my only real complaint. I LOVE to body surf and swim in the ocean, and my daughter loves playing in the sand. The beach here (like most properties between San Jose and Cabo San Lucas) is too exposed and too steep for swimming. If this property had a good swimming beach, it would easily be our family go to. It is very economical without feeling cheap. The facilities are well maintained and good quality. The food was good without being super gourmet. What's not to like?
