The beach club at El Ganzo is the best kept secret in San Jose. Beauruful, private lagoon for swimming, paddleboarding, and relaxing. Full bar and menu, great staff, later back atmosphere, trendy music, and hammocks make this the perfect spot to spend the day at. Israel was our waiter, and did an excellent job!!

Loved the El Ganzo, the staff was wonderful, the room clean and the views perfect. The hotel is filled with art and music (has a recording studio on site). Loved the rooftop pool, there are four restaurants and we ate there every night except when we ate across the street at Georges. Only issue was the service in the main...

If you're looking for a flawless experience but away from the resort crowds, El Ganzo is the place to book. Surrounded by contemporaty art and the most attentive and warm staff, you get to experience Cabo in a less tourist-y, more boutique way. Perfect taste and understated contempo feel.

Recently returned from a 4 night stay at El Ganzo. Nice property with minimalistic but comfortable rooms. Fantastic view and superb upstairs pool area, bar, and hot tub. The staff is friendly. They seem to be 'coached' that the most important aspect of their job is to get the guest the bill for their drink or meal and that this...

I booked this hotel on a whim with a flight deal through a travel site for a very good price. I'll say upfront that when I travel I prefer modern, minimal, boutique hotels to overstuffed, over-styled, or more commercial hotels with the typical beige carpet and random oil paintings. So, to arrive at this hotel made my day. Clean, comfortable,...

Before telling about all the great aspects of this hotel, lets start with not being caught with any surprises. My wife and I are fairly seasoned travelers, over 50 countries, 6 continents, all 50 states, etc.. We always seem to have at least one surprise during each trip. In this case we purchased our stay through Trip Advisor/Jetsetter for a...

I found the design very nice, room with the Bed in the middle of the space which directs the view to the marina and open sea. We enjoyed just staying in bed drinking coffee for a long time. Comfy bed, nice size tube and shower. Service was friendly and helpful. You have a private beach with beautiful water colors and...

This hotel is so pretentious that I would never stay here. It makes believe that it is in one of the most exclusive parts of Cabo San Lucas Jose and treats the staff and surrounding community with disdain. We visit our friends who have a beach villa right across the street from the hotel and when we approach the hotel...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
El Ganzo is Los Cabos' hippest and most unique luxe boutique hotel, often described as a place of experiences. With its very own Cultural, Art & Musical program, it is a member of 'Preferred Lifestyle' and offers 60 deluxe ocean view rooms, three Master, four Large and two Very Large suites. Expansive views of the Sea of Cortez and Puerto Los Cabos Yacht Marina set the tone. Perfectly situated between the area's natural beauty and modern delights, the property stands at the mouth of Marina Puerto Los Cabos bordered by the fisherman's wharf, and is only a 20-minute drive to the airport or just 5 minutes to the historic town of San José del Cabo and the famous Art Walk. Dining options are multiple on site with the Gachoo Sushi Bar, the Upstairs Bar wrapped around the infinity pool and signature glass Jacuzzi, Ganzo Downstairs Restaurant overlooking the marina, or the private Beach Club Restaurant on our swimmable beach. With a complete spa and golf 5 minutes away at Puerto Los Cabos Golf Course, El Ganzo truly is a unique hotel and experience in Los Cabos. ... more   less
