I am guessing there is a lot of competition among resorts in Cabo. And so many more are being built in the next few years. Westin Los Cabos is new so perhaps not many people know about it. So a nice TripAdviser review would be lovely for you to write. Your review and photos here on TUG has certainly interested me to visit the resort if we return to Cabo.We were there in Mid-February, so that is prime time high season. That's why I was surprised that the resort did not seem crowded at all. As we were leaving, when we mentioned we loved the resort and our stay, the lead bellman even asked us to do a TripAdvisor review to help them get a boost as things were slower than they would like.
Our last Cabo trip we stayed at Cabo Azul which was awesome for walking beach, many things in walking distance, but for the interval booking price for a 2 bd we'll just have to figure out the shuttle and bus system. Looking forward to the trip for sure.When we go to Cabo we always stay at 2 to 3 different timeshares. Such Club Regina/RVC (next door to Westin), Coral Baja (WM), Solaris (AI), and now next Spring we are adding Cabo Azul to the mix. Different and enjoyable experiences at all. We have dropped Grand Mayan because of their ridiculous fees. If you stayed at one of the numerous timeshares in the San Jose del Cabo area you could walk or run for miles on the Beach. You would have access to all the stores and restaurants you could desire. Staying at one of the timeshares on the Corridor might not be all the exciting for many. Though in Janaury or February we greatly enjoy the Club Regina/RVC as the whales play right off the Resort. We avoid Cancun and Cabo San Lucas as they are too crowded, noisy, and dirty.
When were you there? There was no construction there in February and the renovations seemed 100% complete.You can’t swim in the ocean. You can’t take long walks on the beach. There was construction. There are no nearby restaurants or shops. You can’t go for a run. We’ve stayed in some luxurious Mexican all inclusives, so I didn’t think this compared.

The ocean isn't really swimmable as you say, but no issue for us. We actually did spend a hour or more walking on the beach one morning. We walked to the right past the large rock outcropping and walked down past the Baja Point resort, the golf course, other condos, and could have walked at least another mile or much more it appeared (see pictures below). There is a very nice restaurant on site with great views, El Cireulo, and another downstairs by the pool. Other great restaurants are just a cab ride away. We've never cared for the all-inclusive experience, preferring to sample the best local restaurants (as always, YMMV).

We didn't drink the water in our villa at Westin Los Cabos, but had no issue with the small amount used to brush teeth. For drinking we drank bottled water or just the ice in drinks from the bars. Didn't need to cook or use the water in any other way.We are here now. We were told NOT to use the water in our villa. It is safe to use the ice maker as it has a filter. We have a 2 bed/2 bath and we had 4 bottles of water in the villa when we checked in. Fortunately, we stopped and bought water and other essentials on the way here.
Renting a minivan would likely be a good idea for the size of your group. If you decided you wanted to hire a local driver, we'veAlso while I'm asking, what's the best way to get to/from airport and around the area with a family of seven. I was considering renting a minivan but thought I'd check with the experts first. Is it possible to hire a local driver for a few days?
There Is a Costco in Cabo. You can get a free one day membership if you don’t have a regular one.We tend to cook in our villa most of the time due to food allergies. Any close good grocery stores? Usually whatever store is on site doesn't have much variety along with high prices. I don't want to spend a lot of time searching out groceries.
