Holiday Inn Resort Los Cabos All Inclusive

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here for 5 nights. We read the mixed reviews and found most of the bad ones to be false. The hotel is very nice and clean. The rooms are fine. Are the elegant like big modern hotels, absolutely not. They are very good and completely adequate. The staff is amazing. They do everything in their power to make you happy . I was amazed how hard they waiters work during meals to accomdodate you needs. Check in was a little slow as there were many people checking in, but not unusual.

We thought we had booked Los Cabos but this hotel is really in San Jose del Cabo, about 25 minutes from Los Cabos. At first we thought oh no we're losers, but actually this area is SO much nicer, prettier, and not trashy like Los Cabos! We had a garden level room with patio. The rooms are nice and spacious. The grounds are very well kept and pretty. The only disappointment was that you can't swim in the ocean, it is a little rough and slightly cold. Thus the fantastic pools. Staff was great and most of the food excellent.

The food variety is small but the quality of the food is good. No nightclub on resort and/or nightly shows besides karaoke and certain shows performed by staff outside of the resort. Unable to swim in the ocean due to the waves and steep current.

As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. This is an inexpensive, second tier resort. The high ratings for this hotel need to be taken with a large does of salt. I have stayed at Ziva, Barcelo and now Holiday Inn. The food and facilities at Holiday Inn are well below that at Ziva and even below Barcelo. We actually walked into San Jose on night three rather then face another round of tasteless fried whatever for dinner. Staff was friendly and the rooms are clean, but bathroom was maybe 6 feet and 5 feet with no light above the sink? I came for fishing, so my requirements for facilities are pretty low, but these were disappointing.

I enjoyed our stay at this hotel except we were not able to swim. Very strong and high waves. Unable to do water activities or swim in ocean.

Everything was what you could expect other than the thermostat didn't adjust. It was either on or off. I didn't need it as the weather was cool. The only item i really would suggest is to make it clear this location you can not swim in the ocean the waves are to large and there are bad undercurrents.

Food is excellent - bars at every pool - easy to get around- staff is wonderful... The surf is undertow dangerous so no swimming in the ocean. But the ocean water is at least 50-100 yards from the resort - so we rarely would go there except for long walks.... That distance also keeps the "white pants" jewelry vendors far away from the resort which I liked.

Even though it's cheaper than other hotels, you will end up concluding it was better to spend several hundred more to get better quality and variety of food, activities that can make your stay more interesting and drinks that you can enjoy. They make pina colada so sweet I can use it for cake topping. You can survive for 3-4 days but after that you start counting days pretty much

We have gone to this resort for many years, & what keeps us coming back are the staff, they are awesome & have truly become friends.

The staff was kind, courteous and very welcoming. The pools, restaurants were clean and inviting and the beach was big! My only critique was the food and adult drinks were just okay at best. Options were limited, and spirits were very cheap Domestic Brands with no options to upgrade even for $. Overall, this is a fun, family friendly option in San Jose del Cabo.

I really enjoyed my stay in the City. The hotel was more dated than I expected, but not horrible. I would not stay here again but normally never visit the same place twice. Hotel staff was super friendly and helpful. The food was my main complaint as I only had breakfast there. Good location and great service just normally choose a nicer hotel. Rooms are kinda hard to find as well.

The hotel is very nice for the price we paid. Check in was a breeze. All the staff are very friendly. Elva at the pool bar is amazing! The food was good and the a la carte restaurant was also very good. If you want a 5 star, this is not the hotel for you but overall it was a great stay!

Had a very pleasant stay -Hotel is on the other side of everything so make sure you understand that. Nice pools and good food- great bar service! We had some trouble with taxi's but this was our first Cabo trip, now we know the drill. Spent a good time at resort and would return to this next trip. Found no need to go into town for superbowl party Resort set up place but way too many fans! great time but not enough chicken wings-NOTE to Hotel, send snacks to ALL the Bars! Lots of Canadians and couples with kids--please is great for families.

This hotel is easy,laid back, friendly cozy safe place with in minutes of a lot of hidden amazing places, do your research, take the bike tour asap they will give you a lot of little details and go be adventurous, YOU will love it!

This hotel is a very good bargain for the price. We got ours at the price of a regular non-inclusive hotel because of discounts from purchasing air & car rental. The rooms are comfortable and the ocean view rooms have a fantastic view of the Sea of Cortez, relaxing balconies, good size rooms. We saw sting rays in the waters close to shore though you can still wade along the shorelines. Tennis courts and ping pong available. Good resort amenities. Food was good and varied from day to day. Entertainment was so-so. The only negative things I have to say about this hotel is that you have to roll your luggage across several tiled hallways and it is very noisy doing that. If you have guests with nighttime or early morning departures that would be annoying hearing all that rolling noise across the tile seals, disturbing sleep. The rooms could use a little updating, but overall comfortable enough for a few nights. Great staff. There is only one buffet restaurant which can get busy sometimes but the food is plentiful. They have a-la carte dining though we didn't eat there. I would stay here again.

I was thinking mexico when you go to mexico it was not authentic mexican food no other beer just tecate not to many options of tequillas

Great experience, enjoyed the stay and the shows. Great ocean view from my room.

Second trip to this resort. Highly likely to return again. Great value and exceptional staff.

Conftable room, you can order room service in your all inclusive without extra charge!

All staff are beyond super friendly! Drinks and food were good we had a excellent time we will be coming back again.

a good, affordable all-inclusive option

Everyone

The staff was kind, courteous and very welcoming. The pools, restaurants were clean and inviting and the beach was big! My only critique was the food and adult drinks were just okay at best. Options were limited, and spirits were very cheap Domestic Brands with no options to upgrade even for $. Overall, this is a fun, family friendly option in San Jose del Cabo.
