This is a tough, tough review for me to write. I wanted to love it, I tried. I had issues and emailed management after our trip and have not heard back from them so...now I write. We booked this on a Groupon. Four nights in a 2-bedroom that supposedly sleeps 5. You pay a certain amount for the Groupon (I... More

I am writing this review to give travelers are realistic expectation of the Cerritos Surf Colony. It’s not “perfect” or “exceptional”. It’s not a “dump”. We are seasoned travelers and have stayed in hammocks in Indonesia, backpacked through Australia, and also stayed in 5-star plus resorts. It’s easier to give you a list of pros and cons, at least from... More

My husband and I have been to cerritos surf club about 6 times over the last 9 years. It started lovely. The Casitas were new and well supplied. However as time went on and Rodger Pollock's legal problems got bigger the place went to hell in a hand basket. Some of the staff we met the last time we stayed... More

We booked at the Mayan Village but because it was under renos they put us in Cerrito Surf Colony and what an amazing place. The view, the people, the pool and the beach were all beyond what words could describe. It is by no means the Holiday in but is definitely a place to go and relax and actually enjoy... More

This is a great little resort about an hour north of Cabo San Lucas. The place offers studio bungalows, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, and 4 bedroom villas. The accommodations are very nice and kept very clean (If you've never been to Latin America before, please keep in mind that you are not in the states anymore. Standards are different). They...

We have been visiting Mexico for 9 years, up to 10x per year. The Cerritos surf colony has been the worst. We tried this place 2 years in a row and it was bad both times. The houses do NOT have fans to circulate the hot muggy air. No A/C but we knew that ahead of time. Sheets had blood... More

My son rented two casitas - open floor plan living room, dining, kitchen 1/2 bath down and two bedrooms with en suite bath up. The casitas are very pretty - Mexican tile, balcony off the front bedroom. However, they are not well maintained. There is no air conditioning which is fine if you have working fans but one of the...

Still the best beach in the area and great to be right on the beach. As others have written some TLC and investor money would be nice to keep up these properties.
