Wow -- that's terrific, and that's a great endorsement on the quality of the property. I believe you've been to Kings Land and HHV Lagoon (plus the Carlsbad properties), and the fact that it compares favorably to these properties really bodes well.
This is a place I've wanted to take Jonell but didn't know if it would be consistent with our previous experiences. I'm very happy to hear that it is a winner.
Any issues getting to/from the airport? And did you eat mostly on-site or did you go into town for dinners? Thanks very much!
We pre-arranged transportation through Cielito Lindo. You still have to walk the green mile through the time-share squawkers. They are confined to one room at the airport and they will say ANYTHING to get you to talk to them. Such as: "I work for the airport" "I can take you to Fiesta Americana" I was walking toward the exit and one guy said I was walking the wrong way. I looked at this shirt and could see he worked for another resort.
Just put your head down and walk out the exit and don't talk to anyone until you're outside. We were picked up by a nice man in a comfy, new Suburban and transported to Fiesta with a complimentary beer in hand.
Our dining choices were a mixture. We ate beachside at the ceviché place a couple of times. There are also pool side burgers.
We had our anniversary dinner at Rosato which is the Italian place on site and the food was excellent. There is also an Argentine steak house and a Mexican place on site. There is a sushi bar near the lobby.
We were handed plenty of free margaritas during our stay even though we weren't all the all-inclusive.
Maria wanted to go to Cabo Wabo one day for lunch in town and we also ate dockside fish tacos at a place in the Marina.
There is a huge Mega store near the airport and a Wal Mart and Costco closer to town. Since our stay was so short, we bought coffee and milk and a few items in the market on property.
I'm glad some HGVCers are interested in this thread. This is a gem that probably gets overlooked because you can't see it online. Los Cabos is such an easy trip for anyone in SoCal, it is a must visit.
