As a regular guest at the Ganzo I used to enjoy coming for weekends and spend my time at the roof top, Alex the waiter who was there 10 month ago was really great and had excellent attitude, unfortunately my last visit was very disappointing. The menu changed and they don’t offer any more hot food like fried rice and...

El Ganzo was phenomenal for us. Quiet location with excellent staff; from the steps of the hotel to the upstairs pool/bar, downstairs restaurant, room service and most especially check in/out desk - all were exceptional. Thank you for the great experience.

We were exhausted when we arrived and this was just perfect. A nice dinner and drinks and then a wonderful room. The infinity pool and views from the rooftop bar are incredible. The next morning we enjoyed beach drinks and food at the beach.

Loved it from the minute I walked into the hotel from the moment I left. Quiet hotel ideal for relaxing staff is super friendly, small enough to where they get to know you very fast. Food is excellent and they have their own herb/vegetable garden which chef uses. The rooms are small but all have ocean views clean great decoration....

EL Ganzo. In fact we did not check in for our 3 night stay. Our experience made me wonder how this hotel could have such positive ratings on Trip Advisor. We left and found a delightful alternative Casa Costa Azul, which made us feel “at home” not “like prisoners.” I’ll write a full review of our stay soon. When we...

Dear Donois, Thank you very much for taking the time to send your comments. We sincerely regret that we were not able to meet your expectations and host you on this occasion. Regrettably, Mexican government sanitation regulations as well as hotel policy require that food is not allowed in the rooms due to the fact of the rooms do not...

Hotel El Ganzo was perfect for us as a couple. It was far from the noise and bustle of Cabo San Lucas, and it had gorgeous views all around. I can see where some might giggle at some of the art installations (painters' tape on the walls was art?), but everything about it made us go "Wow!". The beds were...

We were in awe the entire stay. The rooms, the location, the private beach, the food...it all exceeded our expectations. You'll love your stay here. It's more hip than resort-y. So if you're into resorts, you may consider other places. But if you love rooftop pools with amazing views. If you love private beaches with great food and drink. If...

This is an excellent hotel. Staff, food quality, linens and beds are all outstanding. No disappointments. Every room appears to have some type of view of ocean and marina. Plenty to watch and places to relax. Front desk was attentive and helpful in arranging anything I needed. My room had a deck and everything I needed to relax and enjoy....

It is also the unfriendliest when it comes to people wanting to go up to their rooftop bar. We'd been there the year before & no problem. But this year we returned with friends - to whom we'd raved about the great view & bartenders - and were firmly told that unless we were hotel guests, forget it. This was...

Dear Trawlerdoxie , Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We sincerely regret that you were unable to access our rooftop bar on this occasion. This area is reserved for hotel guests due to its limited space , and visitors are allowed whenever possible. Unfortunately, it seems that the day you came we were already to capacity...
