I was excited to visit Cabo San Lucas again for the first time in a decade in May of last year. I was lucky to stay at the Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos, located in the San Jose del Cabo area of this beautiful destination. This beach frontl hotel re-opened a year ago (formerly the Barcelo Los Cabos) as a Hyatt Ziva, part of the new brand of Playa Resorts. Catering to couples and families alike, I was pleased to see that it sits on a gorgeous stretch of beach. The rooms were beautiful, with modern amenities and décor.
The pool area was very large and overlooked the beach with gorgeous views of the ocean. Service at the swim up bar was very efficient and there were plenty of chairs for everyone on the beach and by the pool. I enjoyed a wonderful massage at the spa.
I was amazed at the changes in this area since my last visit a decade ago. We went into town for a wonderful dinner and I was so impressed with the shops, churches, streets and the general cleanliness of the area. There is a lot of development in the Puerto Los Cabos area with new hotels, golf courses and World Class Marinas.
I was very sad when I heard about Hurricane Odile hitting this area in September of 2014. Many hotels were heavily damaged, but reports are that the downtown area and many hotels have already re-opened and clean-up has been quite efficient. Many hotels, including the Hyatt Ziva, have taken advantage of this opportunity to completely renovate and make improvements to their facilities. I am so excited to return to Cabo, hopefully in 2015, to see an even better, revitalized Cabo San Lucas!
