Misleading Rating

Posted Jan 7, 2016
When we arrived the room was very smelly and musty which is not terribly unusual in hotels close to the ocean however it smelled worse than most and the first thing we noticed were two geckos climbing on the wall and a scorpion between the bed and the sink. I come very close to stepping on it. The grounds were quite well maintained but the pool was not cleaned the whole week we were there as evidenced by a couple dead geckos on the bottom. There were 3 little dogs running around who were quite and not especially bothersome except for dog poop on the concrete surround of the pool. The walk to the beach is probably close to 1.5-2 mi in hot sun and along busy road without sidewalk some of the time. We were charged for breakfast which was supposed to be included. Finally no room service on 2 of 7 days we were there. I contacted expedia and received email that they try to get back to me in 24 hrs but never did.

Beware, their write up on this place is NOT true

Posted Mar 2, 2015 on Hotels
It was not anything line described on hotels.com site. Air conditioning did not work. No flat screen tv. 2 Spanish channels. No desk clerk. Glass around pool area. Stayed two nights. No maid service. Towels were hard and had holes in them. No hot water either. Person when there was one behind desk spoke no English. Just an horrible experience. Would dearly love to have my money back, total misrepresentation on their part of this place. Our doir did not lock and had jewellery stolen from the safe that also did not lock. No one cared and I just wanted to get away from this place asap Very frustrated with this place

Not Recommend!

Posted Feb 25, 2015 on Hotels
Room was not clean. No breakfast offered as advertised. No daily room cleaning as advertised. Very old and pilled sheets and towels. Had to ask for more toilet paper. Know one tended to the yard, but the pool area was pleasant. Would never recommend this hotel!

Unfriendly industrial area, deceptive information

Posted Feb 1, 2015
Pros: Nothing
Cons: It was a reap off. The owner could easily rent out our room during holidays and penalize us for 1-2 nights instead of "non-refundable" 7 nights.
Location: It is an industrial and unfriendly area with no reasonable restaurants around or access to the beach.
This hotel is located in the industrial area with no access to the beach or reasonable restaurants around: for those you have to take a taxi. We rented it for a week during Christmas/New Year time. We had to agree to a "non-refundable 7 nights" condition as there was nothing else available (Previously we never heard about hotels with a "all-nights-non-refundable" policy: typically, there is a penalty for 1 or 2 days max ). There were a number of problems when we arrived. There was no hot water, promised internet did not work, promised king bed was not there, there was an issue with a locker, and a breakfast was pretty bad. There were other issues including accessing hotel in the evening as there was no staff on duty to answer the phone or open the door (eventually we got our own keys from the back of hotel). We decided to move out the next day and told the manager about it. There was no lack of people looking for hotels during holidays as all hotels were rented out: people asked us on the street if we know about available hotels. We were lucky to find another hotel and moved out next day with understanding that our place will be rented immediately while we likely to be penalized for one or two nights. We don't know if our old place was rented out but after we moved out we found out that the owner decided to charge us a full price for all 7 nights. The advice for you: avoid this hotel and never, never, never agree to a non-refundable-all-nights policy.

OK stay

Posted Jan 9, 2015 on Hotels
The room was large and a little old but was very clean, fan did not work so was hot in the night, we did not tell them as we were only there 3 nights and fid not want to move rooms as we had done a lot of travelling already. I was not impressed with breakfast they provided. The pool area was very quiet.

Nice place bad location

Posted Apr 13, 2014
Pros: Roomy, beautiful pool and yard.
Cons: Just wish we had had a realistic picture of the distance to attractions. That is no one's fault but our own.
Location: Cabo, bus ride to St Maria beach for snorkeling, long bus ride to San Jose-but worth it.
Positano Hotel is a charming hotel, with a very nice owner. Rooms were large, had amenities and were comfortable.The grounds are lovely and would make a nice setting for a reception or party. However, it is located right on the freeway-and the noise is constant. It also if too far from any attractions to get to quickly. It requires either a bus ride-which is pretty easy, but costs every time or at least a 30-40 minute walk (to get to Cabo attractions or beach). We spent a great deal of time walking and really wished we had rented a car. If you are getting a package deal that only costs a few more dollars a day for a car-go for it. One little tip-there is a charming Mercado a block or so down the road that has two ladies that will cook for you to order at a very reasonable price. We had them make us a torta and they wrapped it up so we could go to the beach for the day -it only cost 40 pesos, a great deal and the ladies are very sweet. You can pick up water and other snacks there or walk to Walmart which is 1+ mile away.

Mostly abondened hotel with no staff around

Posted Mar 24, 2014 on Orbitz
This is the first time I write a review since my experience was so bad. Started off that the guy at reception didn't have our reservation on record even though booked 2 months in advance through one of the biggest travel sites. Luckily I had a printed receipt of prepayment (They don't take creditcards). After 5 days they never changed the towel or linens! I actually had to ask them for it by a writing note on a napkin since the guy is only around a couple of hours a day in middle of the day when guests are usually not around. In 10 days stay they never changed the sheets or cleaned the room. Only with a broom I guess. One night they even had a party with loud live music right in front of our rooms since they run an events location as well with music and drums till after 2.30am!!! He said it would be "tranquilo" yeah, right! All in all, dirty, unsupervised and loud. Would definitely not stay there again!!
