My husband and I stayed here over the summer and overall the staff, hotel and room was amazing. We stayed in the King shore room with the sliding glass doors opening to the ocean... what a way to wake up! Be warned that there is a fairly trafficked walkway right in front of those rooms which removed some of the...

My husband and I stayed for a week at Cabo Surf Hotel Oct 20-27 for our 16th wedding anniversary. Apparently, surfing in Cabo had been one of the things on his bucket list. I had no idea, after 16 years, that he even had a bucket list! The website does not do this property justice. I was expecting something a...

Thank you Jill, it is very fulfilling to read your review because that is precisely the experience we want our guest to have when visiting us. I will share with everybody here that includes our staff at the front desk, housekeeping, kitchen, restaurant, spa and surf school. Looking forward to see you back next year!

Overall hotel & room This is a perfect hotel to get away for a long weekend to surf, lounge, or explore. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. We got a room upgrade with an ocean view and a nice patio with a hammock perfect for lounging and reading in the afternoon in between surfing. The rooms are clean, well...

I stayed in the King Shore room. Rooms were awesome with the sliding glass doors. Linens were so comfortable. Everyone was extremely accommodating and friendly. The restaurant was lovely and I couldn't ask for better service. I don't quite get the reviews complaining about the staff being rude. Being a small hotel, the front desk knew my name and took...

This is a great place for surfers and families. The hotel is smaller, maybe 40 rooms, most with ocean views. It has a bay out front with 2 surf spots, old mans is a softer break which is great for long boarders and beginners, while zippers is a higher performance point break for short boarders. The property itself is very...

Relaxed small hotel with two great pools. Nice chilled atmosphere with friendly helpful staff. We had a garden room with a partial sea view. It was big and comfortable although a little dated. Overall a nice laid-back place!

We have stayed numerous times as guest at Cabo Surf Hotel. All wonderful experiences from the restaurant to surf board rentals. Our thoughts have now changed. My wife and I did not stay at the location this last trip. However, one of the days we decided to have breakfast and afterward I would surf while she sat on the beach....

Thank you for the review. We will make sure everybody (hotel guests and day visitors) gets treated with the same friendly demeanor we have been known along all these years. Rudeness should not be perceived from us ever. On another note, we will start renting beach lounges (with their umbrellas) to our visiting day guests since the policy has been...

I went with my husband in Early August. Overall the hotel is gorgeous, our room had full sea view, very clean and beautiful.

Cabo Surf is an amazing hotel. The property is beautiful and the views of the waves can be seen from every room. Our kids enjoyed playing in the small soccer field, swimming in both pools, and surfing the waves out front. The staff was amazing, was there to help us with every need, and they were all very friendly. Our...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cabo Surf Hotel is a boutique beach resort located on one of the most privileged beaches in Los Cabos: Acapulquito, also known as "Old Man's". The hotel was voted the 7th best kept secret, out of 21, from Elle Magazine, and was listed in Lucky Magazine as one of the editor’s “no-apologies splurges”. The soothing sounds of rolling waves are heard all around the resort for our guests to enjoy.The quaint 36 rooms, seafood restaurant (the 7 Seas), and day spa (Sea spa & salon), face an ocean cove and sandy beach with rock formations and light jade green waters. ... more   less
