The Barceló Grand Faro Los Cabos hotel is a Premium category resort located on the seafront of the stunning Sea of Cortés. It is a hotel for enjoying the tranquillity of the exclusive Los Cabos, the chosen destination of many famous Hollywood stars. Scarcely 2.5 km away, you can find San José de Los Cabos, a colonial town well-known for its cultural ambience and varied gastronomic offering.
The staff was overall very kind and accommodating.
Not allowing an earlier checkin, not a moment before 3pm, is a little inconvenient.
We had a supreme ocean view room which had to be the room used for the picture perfect postcard. It looked out over the pools toward the ocean so we woke up to a spectacular view every morning. The staff from waiters to maid services was very friendly and prompt in providing all our needs. We hired babysitters on 3 different evenings for our grandchildren and were very pleased with their loving care. Tipping is not required but much appreciated as they don't make much in wages.
The food could come up a notch in flavor but the variety presented at every buffet should suit everyone.
The location was fantastic. The resort and grounds were beautiful. The room was very clean with nice amenities. I would stay again but not do the all-inclusive package next time and go off-site for my meals.
The food quality for this level of resort was sub-par. Everything was very bland. It also appears they need more wait staff. We stayed for only 1 night but made a reservation at the on-site Mexican restaurant. Our dinner took over 2 hours, each dish was below expectation and the portions were tiny. On a separate occasion, I observed a worker in the buffet take a scoop of guacamole, put his finger in it, taste it, then place the spoon back in the guacamole!
