The Barcelo Grand Faro was out home for 8 nights recently and the experience was for the most part, wonderful. The Good: Rooms were clean, and larger than I expected.

This is a nice family resort on the beach. There is entertainment each night and decent food in the onsite restaurants. The gym needs some attention with some of the equipment broke but the treadmills work and there are free weights. Nearby restaurants are available both across the street or :25 walk to the nice little town of San Jose.

Spent a week here with some good friends and we had a great time. Clean rooms, good food, very friendly staff. Carlos C. at the pool bar was outstanding! Best service I've had in a long time. Great resort, highly recommended for anyone travelling to Los Cabos.

It does seem true, "you can never go back" or at least if you have a great experience you shouldn't risk the disappointment of a second trip.

Food was good, drinks were soo good (mojitios)! Service was slow at the pool bar, had to wait over 15 minutes in line for a drink. Rooms were clean, resort was very clean. Small resort and the bars close early before 1am so this isnt a party type of hotel.
