Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Right on Medano Beach, with pristine water
  • A massive pool featuring a pirate ship
  • 3 on-site restaurants, a top-notch spa, and fitness center
  • All rooms have large kitchenettes and balconies
  • Only a short drive to downtown and a nearby golf course
  • Some rooms have partial views of Land's End
  • 24-hour room service

Cons

  • Beach is often crowded
  • Lots of pushy timeshare sellers
  • Some rooms do not have flat-screen TVs
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The Villa del Arco is a well-kept beachfront property featuring 220 studios and suites. Though the typical Mexican room decor (colorful tiles, beach-themed artwork, and sparse furniture) is uninspired, rooms are spacious, with kitchenettes and balconies. The massive pool, complete with pirate ship, is kid-friendly, but couples might enjoy the top-notch spa. The hotel calms down after dinnertime; partiers may want to try a downtown location. As long as guests can avoid the pushy timeshare sellers, the hotel has a Zen-like vibe -- not to mention four-pearl amenities such as 24-hour room service and pristine grounds.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On the bustling beach of Playa Medano

At the southern tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula, Cabo San Lucas -- a beach town on the stretch of coastline collectively known as Los Cabos (The Capes) -- has long been a popular vacation spot for sun-worshipping party seekers. (Hence, the nickname Cabo San Loco.) One of it's most popular beaches is Playa Medano, or Medano Beach, where Villa Del Arco is located.

Popular for its relatively calm waters, Playa Medano is lined by numerous hotels. The waters are a beautiful turquoise, but the beach is almost always crowded with hotel guests, cruise ship revelers, and pushy vendors. Baja Cantina Beachside, a line of bars and restaurants, sits directly on the beach for those looking to embrace the "party hardy" spirit of Cabo.

  • 40-minute drive to Los Cabos International Airport
  • 2-minute drive to the point where boats leave for the famous Playa del Amor
  • 5-minute drive to downtown Cabo's party spots
  • 5-minute drive to the Marina
  • 5-minute drive to the historic stone church, Iglesia de San Lucas, established in 1730
  • 5-minute drive to Boulevard Marina for shopping
  • 6-minute drive to the Cabo San Lucas Country Club golf course
  • 8-minute drive to great views of Land's End, a picturesque rock formation on the coast

 Bottom Line

The Villa del Arco is a well-kept beachfront property featuring 220 studios and suites. Though the typical Mexican room decor (colorful tiles, beach-themed artwork, and sparse furniture) is uninspired, rooms are spacious, with kitchenettes and balconies. The massive pool, complete with pirate ship, is kid-friendly, but couples might enjoy the top-notch spa. The hotel calms down after dinnertime; partiers may want to try a downtown location.
