Recent guest reviews

This is a beautiful resort. Very reasonably priced. Excellent staff and service. We have vacationed in this resort every summer since 2008. We love it.

I have not one complaint about the room, staff, or the services.

even though we had a reaervation, they were overbooked, and they handled it VERY poorly. we had to switch rooms multiple times, were left without a room for almost an entire day out of our 3-night stay, and constantly had to follow and check in at the front desk to ask for updates

Great hotel if you are a time share holder. As a guest. Good luck. They only give you rooms facing nothing. Streets. Are room was beautiful, however it was located over the hotel AC units. Could not open doors & windows so noise. No ocean view room. Street only or pee a boo view. Time share holder get the best rooms. Best seats at restaurants. Hotel is very nice. Great staff. Great pool. But it's about the time share.

LOVED THE HOTEL BUT IT WAS SO EXPENSIVE, I DEFINITELY WASNT EXPEXTING SUCH A HUGE BILL AT CHECKOUT TIME!

Besides the initial "time share pitch", it was a beautiful and wonderful stay. Great restaurant choices/variety, great pool with service (villa Del Arco happy hour is only an hour which could be stretched to two), pool chairs and towels available by pool or ocean, large spacious rooms. Amazing bathtub!!! You can walk along the beach to get to town, or a $9 taxi to downtown area. We will be back again!

Just a great Place, have been going to Cabo for over 20 years. This now is our first choice of all resorts. Thank you Steve & D from Oregon

Would definitely do it again. Was promoted as all inclusive but was not. Must have missed the small print that said all inclusive (available). Overall a great experience.

Staff is rude hidden charges can't bring friends to the hotel awful so many other places to stay

Nice hotel but majority of the elevators were out of service. Arrived to hotel at 130 and was able to get my all inclusive wrist band but had to wait until after 4 for my room key, wouldn't even let me at 345 not impressed with that. And with all inclusive there were certain surcharges, like room service was $2 delivery each order but food free. And fridge was not stocked not even coffee maker.

It was a great experience only downfall is they push the time share thing

It was a clean, safe, fun hotel. The pool and facilities were great. The staff was very attentive and welcoming. The nachos were the best! Beach was awesome but the vendors were overbearing and there is no rest from their relentless hawking of their goods. Avoid the time share presentation at all costs.

What a fantastic resort! From start to finish, it was truly fantastic. We had read reviews that you get dragged into time share presentations and they won't leave you alone etc etc etc all for a free, glass bottom boat tour - the glass bottom boat tour is $10 per person (tops). save yourself the moaning and say no to the presentation! We declined the very polite invitation to the time share presentation, and that was literally the last we heard of it. We were on the all-inclusive, which is a must have. small issue is that you have to sign for everything that you get, all the time - but if you're sitting round the pool, you have one server all day and he runs a tab for you so you only have to sign once. All the staff are fantastic though, they are attentive, friendly and want to be there. The food on the all-inclusive was incredible. The Neptune restaurant was our favorite, amazing views and the food / drinks to match. El Patron was also up there. We didn't manage to try the ones at Palmar as we couldn't leave those two restaurants. If you want a relaxing break with breathtaking views, excellent food / drinks, this is the place. The entire hotel, including the bathrooms surrounding the pool area were kept spotless at all times. The maids do a wonderful job. Wifi is temperamental in the rooms and doesn't work at all in the gym. One thing I have to mention is the sun lounger reserving - to get a sun lounging in the morning, you have to be up at 6 30am to get one. If you want a good position ie. facing the beach you have to be up at 5am to reserve. Don't believe the note they hotel gives you about no reserving sunbeds - first two days were not in a great position round the pool, and then we clocked on!

The hotel was nice, good location, but the service was really poor. Very disappointed for the money paid.

hotel was even better than we expected -- great value, good food, great shuttle into town or the two sister hotels, staff very friendly, yummy goodies in the room

The location is amazing. Can walk or take a short cab ride anywhere. The restaurants were very good and staff very friendly and helpful.

If you are looking for complete quiet in a good location, (swimming beach, 20 min. walk to town) this could be right for you. We booked last minute for New Years week. Our room was large, with large patio. Could not turn off air conditioning at night. Our family found the hotel and pool quite boring. All of the activities and amenities are a trolley ride away at the less expensive Villa Mirmar. We did go to the time share presentation, which from start to finish is 3 hours not an hour and a half. You are handed off to 9 people, they get very aggressive in the last hour, but honestly the program is not worth it, and with all the great hotels in Cabo, don't waist your time or money in this lackluster place!

We booked last minute and were just happy to find a hotel in the location we wanted. To our surprise, Villa Del Arco was absolutely amazing. Clean, beautiful pools, great food and fantastic staff. We're already looking to go back.

It's true what the reviews say, they will try to really sell you on the timeshare. We gave in and went to the presentation. The only thing good that came from it were the free excursions. We would probably stay somewhere else next time.

We stayed 4 nights and 5 days and left on Monday, September 1st. I’ll try to break down my review into separate pieces and will list them in no particular order. We purchased the all-inclusive package and were not there as time-share owners. Location – The location is excellent. It’s on a swimmable beach and walking distance from the marina and a lively entertainment area. The beach directly in front of the resort is quiet, but there are vendors there. The lounge area is roped off so you will not be approached while you’re relaxing, but you will encounter them as you walk to the beach. They are not high pressure, but there are several of them at any given time. Just say ‘no thank you’ and keep walking and you should be fine. I would rate it 4 stars. Food – Food seemed to be well received by everyone in our party. We ate at 3 of the Villa restaurants; El Faro and El Patron at del Arco, and Bella California at Palmar. As all-inclusive patrons, you have access to both Villa del Arco and Villa del Palmar, which is a short walk or trolley ride away. The only complaint we had was the service was slow at both El Faro and Bella California. I would sit aside 2+ hours for a meal. Bella California was close to three hours. I would rate it 3.5 stars. Service – I was a bit disappointed in the service. I visited Villa del Palmar in PV last year and I thought the service there was clearly better than the Villa del Arco in Cabo. As mentioned above, the service in the restaurants was generally slow. The service around the pool was spotty and the wait staff was generally not as welcoming. I had several great experiences and several not-so-great experiences. It was a mixed bag. I would rate it 3 stars for service. Beach – The water is clear and a great temperature this time of year. It drops off quickly and is probably 6’ deep within 10 yards of walking in. The current can be strong but as long as you’re away from the breakline on the shore, you will be fine, though you will be treading water. We swam daily and loved it. The sand is a little coarse so you may need shoes if you plan on walking the shoreline. The beach is free of seaweed. I would rate it 4 stars. Rooms – Rooms were very nice. We booked a small suite and ended up with a larger suite. Well appointed. Everything you need. Comfortable. AC works well, though the plumbing can be a challenge. Large balconies. Very clean. 4.5 stars. Spa – My wife and a friend purchased massages there and said they were magnificent. 4.5 stars. Appearance – one of the upsides of the constant timeshare presentations is that the resort needs to be presentable at all times. And it is. The grounds, landscaping, pool, etc…were all well-manicured and in nice shape. When you walk out of the glass doors towards the pool you’re immediately greeted with that great view of the “mountains” meeting the ocean in the distant. 4.5 stars. Gym – Fantastic gym. Everything you need. 4.5 stars. Wifi – 0 stars. I understand it is status quo for resorts and hotels to charge for wifi, but the Villa group needs to move beyond that. Bake that into the price of my room if you need to. The last thing you want to feel when you arrive at a resort is being ‘nickel and dimed’. They charge per day, AND PER DEVICE. If you have two devices, you’re paying $20/day in wifi fees, which should be free to begin with. The coverage was decent, but the thought of paying per device was a big turn off. This could be turned into a competitive advantage if they marketed correctly, as free. Timeshare – There are timeshare presentations going on all the time. It’s part of the scene here but I didn’t find them to be bothersome. Music – Music that is played over the speakers throughout the resort can be a little odd. You may want to sit away from one of the many speakers if you are not a fan.
