Just perfect!

Posted Feb 9, 2016
Pros: Comfortable, clean, amazing staff. Location was perfect for our needs - quiet, next to the beach, and close to town.
Cons: Food selection at the upstairs bar. Although my husband loves sushi, I found few choices that fit my tastes.
From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, the entire staff was very attentive and helpful. We can't say enough good things about the front desk staff! They made dinner recommendations, arranged for a rental car for us, and answered countless questions about the area and Mexico in general. The awesome private hotel beach was just a short water taxi ride across the marina. We chose to walk to the Container for breakfast, a lovely 15 minute stroll around the marina...well worth the walk and delicious food! Our room was spacious, clean, very comfortable and had a front row seat from our balcony for all the action of the marina. Rooftop infinity pool, glass walled hot tub and swim up bar were favorites! We loved hanging out in our own lounge bed, with plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the view while we read and sipped on margaritas. We indulged in a couples spa treatment and were both impressed with the facility and knowledge of the massage therapists. Priced very well. Although not in the main part of town, Hotel El Ganzo is a quick cab ride or a long (comfortable) walk into the historic part of San Jose del Cabo. We heard amazing things about Flora Farms but could not get a reservation. Happily, a similar new restaurant (Acre) opened nearby and was incredible. We definitely recommend Hotel El Ganzo and will be returning.

very nice hotel with minimalist approach

Posted Jan 24, 2016
Pros: very quaint and clean nice harbor location
Cons: the website with much clearer description of hotel specifics. There should be hard stops when booking minors or triple explaining hotel policies
Location: nothing look at marina need to travel to any significant restaurants or marketplaces no night life except amenities in hotel
very nice minimalist with simple but elegant features Isolated from any amenities except harbor. Our problem was expedia The website was not well designed and there was no cancellation policy in the offering. It only became apparent that there was a two night cancellation policy after booking It is adults only but I was able to book a room with a 17 year old?!. There is a two person maximum per room! this is not very evident in the website which appears to be changing as we speak. We checked out the next day due to embarrassment went to another hotel. Neither expedia nor EL Ganzo wants to work with us on the refund they keep referring us to the other person. This is a significant fail on Expedia's part and they take no responsibility. The website should be more clear and explain restrictions.

great hotel with its own beach

Posted Nov 11, 2015
Pros: beach, fabulous staff, beautiful setting and plenty of activities and restaurants the staff is great
Cons: Nothing
Location: historic San Jose del Cabo Flora Farm ( a great location and restaurant) The camel ride and swimming with the dolphins
A beautiful modern hotel in a fabulous setting overlooking a marina with a view of endless beaches. The hotel had gourmet food and several restaurants . There was a boat available to take you to a private beach and also to a place called the Container which is a fabulous restaurant. The staff is wonderful. They were very helpful and friendly . Anything you needed they took care of for you. We hardly left the grounds. We went there for a Wedding and what a wonderful celebration it was.

luxury peace and quiet

Posted Aug 23, 2014
This is our 2nd visit because we enjoyed our first one so much. Enjoyed our stay as much if not more The hotel pools are excellent....downstairs for lanes and roof top for spending the day.....but also have the beach club for ocean swimming, paddle boarding and again spending the day. They have introduced a new menu which was excellent...good mix of Mexican cuisine along side more regular fare

Awesome Hotel Away From Crowds

Posted Aug 22, 2014 on Hotels
Everything was great!! Marco at the front desk and everyone else were so very nice and accomodating. The surrounding area was nice and most of it breathtaking. The Drunken Sailor and La Marina both had great food. The Container was good but lots of mosquitos! Take bug spray. Overall our stay was more than we imagined. Would definitely return.

Best Kept Secret in Cabo

Posted Jul 1, 2014
Pros: The staff was very eager to please us. The hotel and amenities are beyond beautiful and very unique. Boat ride across the water to the beach was fun.
Cons: The food and bar service is a little slow. The waiter at Sunday brunch did not know that the brunch came with a bloody mary, mimosa or sparking wine.
Location: Great beaches, swimming and fun little places to eat in walking distance.
This was incredibly romantic and private. The water was really warm and the private El Ganzo Beach was relaxing and peaceful. I would recommend that you give this hidden gem a try. The pool on the roof is must do. No extra charge for the cabanas and chairs with is really nice.
