Great for Adults

Every room is directly on the ocean so you cant go wrong with the views. The pools are narrow and shallow, but the infinity edge right up against the ocean is beautiful and relaxing, not to mention the swim up bar. Service was excellent, as there seemed to be 4 staff members for every guest. The buildings are lodged between two large hills that perfectly blends in with the desert landscape. My only complaint is that the ocean is very rough at that location with constant red flag conditions. You'd have to drive about 10 to 15 minutes up the coast to Chileano Bay to get a good beach for swimming and snorkeling. Also, there's not much for kids to do here other than swim in the pools. But that makes it a great place for adults.

Great location/ family and couple friendly hotel

The Westin is in a great location in Cabo. It's a little closer to San Jose than downtown Cabo but the hotel is a reasonable price for what you get. Hotel is clean, rooms are spacious and every room has a balcony. The only complaint I have is during the busy weeks the staff if very slow, and while I speak some Spanish, the language barrier can be an issue when getting correct food. Note: prices in Cabo are fairly expensive and cabs are a lot (tax rate increased from 11 to 16% come 2014). If you ride with a group it's much cheaper since it's a flat fee based on location regardless of number of people in the cab. Activity concierge is very helpful and prices include transportation to and from.

If you want to save on snacks/ water, take a cab to the Mega food store and stock up for your stay-- ie: waters are approx $4.50USD each at the hotel.

Ambience, awesome views & attentive service

General Thoughts & UPsides: One is first struck w/ the ambience of the place when you check in... very friendly and obviously well-trained staff greet you in an open-to-the-air lobby. Our reservation was messed up - we were listed as a parent and child (vs. my wife and I), so we asked to be switched from a 2 Queen room to a King. We were told "no problem" ... but that we'd need to wait while such a room was made ready for us. We were offered a cool drink (fresh-squeezed lemonade for us) as we waited in the relaxed outdoor lobby, a balmy wind blowing off the Sea of Cortez below. The architecture is the next thing that grabbed us... a very unique style that is unlike any resort we've been at... although all the walkways take a bit to figure out in getting around. A plan view map of the hotel would be a nice addition at check in. The architecture is also unique in that ALL the rooms have a totally awesome view of the pounding surf. We had a "partial" ocean view... but there wasn't much partial about it...drifting off to sleep and awakening with the sound of the surf was delightful for us. A possible caveat re: the beach. Dangerous undertow flags are posted most of the time so there isn't much swimming in the ocean. In a week stay, we saw people swimming and body surfing 2 out of 8 days... and then for only a couple hours. However, for us, the pools were fantastic, and we utilized the beach for walking and gazing at the surf. The room (a King, partial ocean view) was beautiful... the bed super comfy... and the bathroom/shower reminded us of a stay at a Kohler resort! All of the staff we met were very friendly, attentive, and helpful. Some were over-the-top in their training and service attitude. Someone has done their job well. All the food that we had was good... but VERY pricey [e.g., American Breakfast = $19/person; Buffet = $36 {$52 for seafood night}; Nachos = $14 (one of the cheaper menu items, which we shared); Soup = $15; Salmon entree = $30; Hamburger = $17; coffee w/ meal = $5;... you get the picture]. Would suggest all-inclusive option if offered... or... share meals. Downsides: > Surf too rough for swimming (see above) > Food is WAY over-priced > Only mini-golf and tennis equipment are complimentary... but old, beat-up and in serious need of replacement. > "Complimentary" in room coffee... is only complimentary the 1st day! The in-room coffee tastes lousy, and they'll charge you $3/coffee packet after the 1st day. Seemed pretty chintzy for a Westin Resort. Ergo... BRING YOUR OWN COFFEE. > Location is absolutely GREAT for relaxation... but requires transportation to either of the two towns of San Jose Cabos or Cabos San Lucas. > Transportation by taxi to town, or to some of the tours is a killer - $35 one way. Better to hop the bus (stop located @ hotel driveway) and pay $2-$3 bus fare. > NO HOTEL SHUTTLE. It's hard for me to believe that a resort like this would have no airport shuttle, nor shuttle into town... but there is none. Overall - I'll give 4 stars.

Nice value, hotel food needs work

Hotel looks very nice and the colors blend in with the red rock. The ground are well kept too. Rooms are quite comfortable with a nice view of the ocean and huge shower. The pool area is large and its a great view of the ocean; only problem is the waves are too strong, so you can NOT swim in the ocean here. Our main problem was the hotel's food was not good, even at their expensive restaurant(it was just ok). [We had 1 dinner and 1 breakfast here over 5 days.] For example, lattes at breakfast were made via machine, not barista, so it was very watered down and expensive. I would not recommend eating at the restaurants, money better spent at local shops.

Go to San Jose del Cabo neighborhood and check out posada terranova for breakfast and in Cabo San Lucas go to Mi Casa for lunch or dinner. Both were great.

Ok, not great

Pros - beautiful views - nice pools - awesome breakfast buffet - room was nice and clean - adequate gym Cons - very remote - very expensive to take a taxi into town ($36 round trip to San Jose) - ongoing construction while we were there. No mention of this when we booked. - hard to get around resort. Random stairways and ramps. Overall, don't feel like we got what we paid for.

Getaway from the snow

We really enjoyed our time at the Westin, Los Cabos. It was a nice getaway and the staff made our trip very enjoyable. The location is close enough to everything we wanted to do and the amenities allowed us to stay put most of the trip. Food was over priced for the quality, but that is to be expected at a higher end resort. Overall it was a great trip!

A Stunning Resort

We stayed at the Westin for 8 nights in March and throughly enjoyed our stay. The resort is one of the most architecturally stunning places we have stayed. The lobby building is separated from the accommodations building so that, when you walk into the open air lobby, you have an unimpeded view of the magnificent arched main building framing the gorgeous blue-green ocean. Getting around the resort should not be a hindrance unless you have walking issues even though there are varying levels. A cart is available for getting around if needed. We ate at the signature restaurant Arrecifes and had a great fish meal. We also ate at La Cascada and enjoyed a very well made Mexican buffet with many fresh offerings. We rented a car for maximum flexibility of getting to both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose. Others chose to take taxis. The employees were wonderful, warm and helpful in every respect. I would recommend this resort without hesitation, and we hope to return.

Driving in Cabo area is pretty simple. The resort is about 25 minutes from Cabo and 10 minutes from San Jose. We recommend renting a car for maximum flexibility.
