HOTELS TO MENTION
AFFORDABLE - Bahia Hotel & Beach House
PROS - I can't explain how much I loved this hotel and especially at the super affordable price! I had a girls' weekend here in mid May and the rates were about $169 a night for the Run of the House room. The rooms are renovated and, in my opinion, felt very luxurious. The restaurant was fantastic and there was even a delightful bakery and coffee shop attached to the restaurant. The pool was quiet and there was also a swim up bar. We didn't see too many children at this hotel - it was more couples and friends. This hotel is close to downtown Cabo San Lucas just off Medano Beach and everything you want is in walking distance - the beach, bars, and restaurants.
CONS - This hotel is NOT on the beach. It's a block behind the beachfront hotels, but with that said, it was SO close to everything. We walked to multiple beach clubs and restaurants during our stay. You will have to pay for access to the beach clubs, so you might want to consider that when comparing hotel prices. SUR Beach House is affiliated with this hotel but you'll still pay $25 per person for a chair and umbrella. The chairs do not recline completely so they weren't the most comfortable. We ended up renting one of the daybeds, which required purchasing a bottle of wine. Be sure to clarify the price of the bottle and/or daybed rental. They "misquoted" us so we ended up paying a lot more than we expected.
I highly recommend this hotel and would stay again.

HIGHER END - ME Cabo
This hotel is beautiful and has an ideal location but you'll definitely pay more. It's located right on the beach so no need to hunt down beach clubs. Rates for the Aura room at the end of May begin at about $300 per night. The pool can get crazy with a DJ and Bachelor/ette parties. It's fun if you're wanting that but if you're looking for a romantic getaway, just email the hotel before booking to ensure there aren't any events happening during your stay.
Overall, it makes for a great stay. It's right on the beach and you can walk down the beach to get to my favorite Cabo restaurants, The Office and Edith's.
