Pros:

Turn down service – new fresh towels, tidy the bathroom, turn down the bed, set out the breakfast menu, chocolate but most importantly they bring you the cup for the morning coffee delivery!

Morning coffee, pastries and fruit delivered to the Magic Box between 6 and 7 am each morning. Remember to place the basket back in the Magic Box for them to pick up again.

Lots of nice plush towels in the bathroom

Bottled water

Mini bar with beer, pop and water

2 small bottles of liquor and peanuts and Pringles chips replenished daily

Very nice warm décor in room

Very comfortable beds and great feather duvet and perfect pillows!

Air conditioning plus a ceiling fan!

Good water pressure and rain shower head.  Hot water is plentiful and comes quickly.

Very good quality shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and also 15 spf sunscreen replenished as needed – not just bottles refilled.

Small sofa in the room to sit at plus a larger sized desk area

Electronic safe – laptop sized

Large wardrobe

Very spacious rooms

Very good quality of food at all restaurants – even the lunch food/bar area

Very good quality drinks

No wrist bands

No reservations at restaurants and no wait times while I was here

Great whale watching from anywhere at the resort

Bar hopping excursion into Cabo San Lucas was widely liked – enough that many couples went a number of nights.

No hassling by beach vendors – only saw a few during my entire stay.

Nice long beach to walk on  in both directions.

Canto Del Mar – 6 – 11 pm – enjoyed every meal here – enjoyed the small portions and even though small was always enough

Vista Balleranas – 7 am-12 noon breakfast was either buffet - fruit, pastries, juices, eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes or French toast, oatmeal, chiquilas, refried beans, toast and more plus an omelet station and an a la carte menu service

Lunch and dinner from 12 noon to 11 pm – a la carte menu service – good selection of International choices plus Mexican dishes

Dos Mares – noon to 6 pm  - great buffet or a la carte choices by the pool for lunch

 

Cons:

Not enough hangers in the large wardrobe

No iron or ironing board

Slow drink service around pools – slightly understaffed or overworked

Kind of slow coffee delivery in breakfast restaurant

Beach not swimmable here but short 10 minute walk to Hilton beach cove area which is a public beach and great swimming and water sports area

 

My overall impression:

While my stay here (February 2012) the resort was still converting over from Marquis to Secrets Marquis so the menus showed pricing (for Marquis non-all inclusive guests) and room information was Marquis but other than that there were no issues.  There will be more restaurants added by this summer and some other minor renovations – moving the gym, etc but the staff say it will not interfere with guests at all.

This is a great resort for couples or groups of friends.  It may appear on the quiet side but I think that is because that is how most people wanted it while I was there.  There were a number of couples that all made friends and became a great group to hang around with.  The resort offers a bar hop shuttle service in the evening that lots of people took part in and they all loved it which is great – pool by day, town at night!  Great food!  Great drinks!  Very friendly staff especially the front desk and concierge staff.
