Rated 5 out of 5 by girslweekend Perfect weekend!
I can't say enough good things about the accommodations and the hotel staff! We got an upgrade to ocean view room at check-in, and the staff was very helpful and attentive, especially the waiter at the pool, the housekeeping staff, and the bell staff! While the front desk was fine, the waitstaff, housekeeping, and bell staff were so kind and welcoming and went out of their way to answer questions, and remembered us each day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hotinmexci Very nice rooms but staff need better customer service
The shuttle drivers to town were really bad with blasting hip hop music shaking the car. They had no regard to the customer making us wait in hot car while they talk amongst themselfs. Every employee you asked a question to had a different answer to what your question was. Service was way below average for a high end resort. Rooms were very nice though. Staff seemed to have an attitude.

This is a beautiful property with lovely grounds. We had an ocean front room with a spectacular view.in one of the villas. There are several pools to choose from. The staff was attentive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Karin29 Hotel is beautiful!
The hotel was great, the food was wonderful, overall had a great time! The the pool staff is also very attentive. The problem we had was after checking in we were led to believe a member of the staff was helping to set up reservations for activities. Only later did we find out that person only works for the villas. She set us up on what we thought was a romantic sunset cruise to find out it was a booze cruise. It was terrible! I complained to the front desk person upon check out, who was rude and no help at all. For a Gold SPG member I was very disappointed in the response

Our 3 night stay was just great. The restaurants were all great experiences, food, presentation and environment. The room was very comfortable. Room service was super also. Multiple pools was good so we could pick the location that best fit our mood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pat0144 Destination Wedding
This hotel was a perfecct place for a destination wedding. Part of the package was a discount on food and beverages for those of us registered as part of the wedding party. The hotel did not honor the 20% discount as stated on our written welcome letter. They did however, after much discussion at each occassion, give us 10% discounts. Seems like a small thing, but I feel the hotel should have honored their printed disounts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jeff1250 Great place to unwind
Sheraton is a fantastic place for a couple or family trip. Many amenities on site for all ages, including pools, restaurants, activities and lots of room simply to enjoy the spectacular surroundings. Impeccable rooms and great service as well. Only nit was a coffee maker that did not work and inability to get a moderately priced meal on site. Otherwise, outstanding destination, safe and secure and 10 minutes from the Disneyland like fervor of Cabo marina.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Karin29 beautiful hotel and location
We just returned from Cabo on June 20th. The hotel does a great job keeping everything clean and in great shape, especially the grounds, Pitahayas is an excellent dining choice, food was delicious, way better than De Cortez Steakhouse. Only advice, when you check in a representative leads you to believe they are a concierge and will assist you in making plans. Apparently they do not work for the hotel but the timeshare portion on the property. She led us to believe we were booked on a sunset sail, it was a booze cruise, awful food and not romantic. I spoke to the desk person who was not helpful at all. The front desk staff is not rude but not friendly.

My husband and i had a wonderful time at Sheraton Hacienda. We loved the location, the pools were amazing, the room was perfect, nothing over the top but comfortable with perfect proximity to the pool. The only true complaint we had was our "fancy" dinner at De Cortez. The food was horrible. The service was wonderful but the wine tasted like it had gone bad, the lobster was rubbery, and the shrimp and scallops had no flavor. For being one of the premier choices to eat for a "nice" meal it was WAY below par. Other than that we had a wonderful stay!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BRUNKS22 Beautiful Hotel
Overall this hotel was gorgeous. Very well kept landscape, clean, and beautiful views. All staff members were extremely nice and helpful without making you feel like you were bothering them. Only complaint we had was that the air conditioning in our room was not 100% functional and it was really hot. Other rooms we visited appeared to work fine. Otherwise, an expensive weekend but to be expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeremy00000 Great Resort
We stayed in a hotel room at this resort. The resort is large and luxurious. There are over 30 buildings, several restaurants, bars, pools.
Our room was floor level and basic. It had a flat screen, but no dvd player or stereo. The cleaning staff is amazing as our room was always spotless. The air conditioner is completely silent. The only sounds I heard were very quiet rhythmic sounds from the room above, but they did not last for longer than a minute or two.
The pools are fantastic. If one pool is busy, just go to another.
The hotel is right on the beach and there is beach access, but you can't go swimming there as the surf is too violent.
The hotel is isolated, which makes it quiet but you can't walk to anything. Luckily we had free valet. Taxis from the airport are about $100, so it is better to rent a car. The driving there is slow and easy and impossible to get lost (There is practically only one road).
The restaurants are decent but very expensive. Plan on about $50 bucks per person. This is about twice as expensive as a fine restaurant in town.
Drinks are expensive too, about $10/drink. There is a fridge in the room, but it is not cold enough to store any food or drinks. We went to Walmart and bought a cooler for drinks and some food. Saved lots of money.
We have a small child and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We plan on returning next year.
Lastly, I talked with many guests and there is a variety of methods for staying at this resort (SPG points, Orbits, Costco, etc). It seems that Costco is the best deal, especially if you are going all-inclusive. If you are a drinker, all-inclusive is the way to go. They really took good care of the all-inclusive guest, better then us regular paying guests.
Finally, try a Sangrieta. It is my new favorite drink

I am glad I picked Sheraton hotel instead of Westin hotel this time based on customer rating online. The place is beautiful and clean everywhere. Food is expensive as expected , beach is not swim-able due to high wave as expected but location is so convenient to get to Costco/Walmart and downtown of Los Cabos. Hotel parking also is convenient ,almost next to the room. Our family really love it and will be back again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by corvette98 Hotel very good & food just ok
The hotel is definetily a first class facilility with excellent facilities and service. All staff members have a sound understanding and provide the guests with a high level of customer service. Hotel facilities, rooms and grounds are well maintained and very clean. My compliments to the Front Desk, Bell Staff, Groundskeepers, Housekeepers, Restaurant Staff and Maintenance. Also, I am accustomed to free WiFi in a first class hotel. The guest PC's facilities in lobby are very ackward and cumbersome. Unfortunately, the Hotel restaurant food is rather bland and unremarkable, and not resembling Mexican cuisine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 2872 cheerful and attentive staff
The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff is very numerous and attentive. Three comments: 1) Rooms were noisy. You could hear every foot step of a neighbor, the fan on the complex AC turbine all night long, the trundle of the house keepers' carts anywhere in the building. 2) The bottom six inches of the windows needs blackout, too much light comes under the curtains in the morning. 3) While the staff is attentive, service, once ordered was slow (for drinks or for food).

Rated 2 out of 5 by DebinSTL2014 Treated poorly, rude staff
From the minute we walked in the lobby with the time share lady yelling at us to come see her for our "welcome packet" to the lady that examined our plates each morning to make sure we were only taking stuff that was part of the continental breakfast and not any "hot" items, I just didn't enjoy this property at all. While the facility itself is very nice, it's the people that make the vacation a special one. And most of the hotel staff made us feel unwelcome. People begin reserving their chairs by the pool despite numerous signs everyone telling the guests not to do this. We were on the beach every day which was nice and uncrowded. I just wish that the hotel had some control over the beach vendors. I got so tired of telling them No, No, No - over and over. Just leave me alone and let me relax. I don't want to buy anything. We have now stayed at both SPG properties in Cabo and my summary - don't stay at either one. I don't plan to return to Cabo - but if I do, I will give my business to another resort.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LAGuy Rude De Cortez Restaurant Service
We had extremely poor service at a dinner on Sunday, May 18, 2014 at De Cortez Restaurant with a group of friends. Although there were multiple reasons we were quite dissatisfied with the dinner, the main reason was the service staff's training in customer service and acknowledging our concerns about the service and the food; and their reluctance to make an effort to rectify our concerns. What occurred is as follows. A large table had dinner at the restaurant and had to wait between 90 - 120minutes to get our main courses. When we received the main courses, the fish dishes (seasbass) was quite rubbery in texture and had obviously been cooked and then re-heated via microwave, and the duck dishes that others had ordered was not properly cooked. Because it had taken so long in order to get the meal, several children at the table fell asleep. we had entered the table at around 8pm. And the server took our order around 820pm and received the main courses around 1020pm. When we raised the concerns with the server and the manager, their response was to state that the order had been entered at around 840pm and after 9pm into the computer. When we brought up that the server had taken the orders via pen and paper; and that the lag time to entry into the computer was nearly 20 minutes and 40 minutes respectively, the manager did not acknowledge our concerns; but rather stated that our group was nearly double what the original reservation had noted. We told the manager that the absolute number of individuals at the table was not different from the reservations if they were all taken in aggregate (meaning there were several different reservations that were combined into one large table). Second the manager stated that they were extremely busy that evening. There was a large party on the beach which was not a part of our group and the patio facing the ocean was full; but when entering the inside of the restaurant, there were no tables occupied. As I noted earlier in my statement; although we understand that restaurants can take longer for one reason or another, what was most upsetting for us was the fact that neither the manager nor the server acknowledged our concerns; but rather continued to blame us (more people than originally reserved - although this wasn't true); use the time the order was entered into the computer (vs the time the order was taken via pen and paper); and to use the excuse that the restaurant was "busy," even though the inside of the restaurant was quite empty on the inside. It would be helpful for your restaurant staff to be re-trained to a) acknowledge and apologize for the delay for customers; and b) offer some modicum of trying to appease our disappointment - like a free dessert or something; instead of blaming the customers and making excuses that were not at all true. This was likely the worst service that I have ever received at a Starwood property; and inconsistent with the values and customer service that I have come to expect as a longtime Starwood customer.

We had a great time at the resort.
We were attending my sister's wedding and were not disappointed.
Only item of concern was the automatic concierge charge. I did not see this mentioned in any information beforehand.
I much prefer to tip on my own. (I tip well.)
I was extremely impressed with Guilermo.
He looked after us around the pool and took care of any requests that we had. A++++.
Thank you for a great stay!

Enjoyed our stay very much. Staff was always going out of there way to keep you happy. Food is extremely good, at all the restaurants on the grounds. Would have been nice if we had a screen on our patio door, as it brought in many bugs and mosquitoes. Cleaning lady never cleaned out our coffee maker so I had to everyday. Facets were loose in the bathroom, front door didn't latch properly. A pen in the room would have helped with the pad of paper that was left there. Some nights chocolates were left by the bed and other days not. We had a person above us that would drop his ashes onto our patio then discard the cigarette butt in the lawn just in front of us.

Our refrigerator did not work and it had nothing in the mini bar, so we called twice for the replacement and when they replaced it, still nothing in the mini bar. This was part of our package, beverages in the mini-bar and purchases for others. We called 3 times for the mini bar items and nothing happened.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jose7787 Room for improvement
The biggest let down in this accommodation was the cleanliness of the room. From the floor that turned our feet black, to the dust that covered lamp shades and blinds. After requesting several times that our Jacuzzi be repaired, on the fifth day we left, with yet another shower. The outside area was not attended to the entire trip, as the bird feces continued to build up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by familygirl99 trip with family for spring break
The hotel was beautiful, with gorgeous pools and a beautiful ocean view, and extremely helpful concierges. We had a great time, but there were several issues with the hotel that would keep us from going back. First, while there were many pools, there was not much to do besides swim in a regular pool. We had mostly tweens and teens, and the pools were not particularly interesting for them (no water features, slides, lazy river, etc.), and since the beach wasn't swimmable, and activities at the hotel were very limited (no water sports, boating, tennis, basketball, etc.), there was not enough to keep it interesting for more than a couple of days without leaving the property. Second, the on-site food was tasty but expensive for what it was -- a caesar salad with shrimp was almost $25 at the pool, and the dinners were extremely expensive for not very large portions. The food was good, but it got very expensive to stay and eat on the property. Third, while some staff members were extremely nice, a couple (such as the manager of one of the restaurants) made certain meals pretty unpleasant, especially when the cost of the same meal nearly doubled from one day to the next to our great surprise with no written difference on the menu. We had fun, and it is beautiful, but better for a shorter trip, and those with kids may prefer a resort with more interesting swimming and recreation options.
