Sunquest’s senior buying team recently visited Los Cabos, Mexico to assess the situation with various hotels, and the destination in general, following the damage caused in September by Hurricane Odile.
“Overall the destination looks great,” said Elvi Cal, vice-resident, Product Development, Sunquest. “There is very little evidence that a hurricane even hit; much less a very strong Category 3 storm.”
He added, “Cabo San Lucas is clean, the buildings and shops have been repaired and are operational, and the restaurants and bars are open for business. In terms of the resorts in this area, along with those in the Corridor and in downtown San José del Cabo, overall they are in great shape. There are some properties that had more extensive damage and are still working on repairs, but generally speaking things are looking very good. The airport is fully operational and welcoming visitors and any remaining repairs are merely cosmetic.”
The following is the status of the hotels in Sunquest’s line-up: Barcelo Grand Faro (open); Fiesta Americana Grand (open); Posada Real Los Cabos (open); Royal Solaris Los Cabos (open); Secrets Puerto Los Cabos (open); Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos (open); Holiday Inn Los Cabos (re-opens Dec. 15); Dreams Los Cabos (re-opens March 1); Zoëtry Casa del Mar (re-opens March 1); Marquis Los Cabos, (re-opens March 1); Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos (re-opens April 15); Melia Cabo Real (re-opens June 30).
