I mean I get that charging a guest fee is an additional revenue source and I've never met a hotel that didn't like those and registering guests can serve legit security functions, but let's face it if you are on vacation sans significant other and it isn't like a family reunion or the like "getting lucky" can make a trip. Particularly at a beach resort where everyone is walking around 3/4ths naked all day.
I'm sure there are places with a true "no-guest" policy. I've never run into one (at least at a regular hotel/resort where you call and make personal reservations not some group on some special program). If you are willing to pay for it there is a way around it. The worst I ever ran into was she had to show ID and I paid for a full day resort fee (it was an all inclusive place) at rack rate...probably around $75 (and she didn't even stay for breakfast ).
My suggestion if you plan on having a guest (civie or pro) is just ask the hotel. They will tell you....I'm sure you aren't the first to ask...

But back to my original inquiry. Does anyone have a favorite restaurant in Cabo to recommend?
I was in Cabos for only a few days and stayed mostly on the marina/touristy area, so Iím sure there are much better dining options than what Iím suggesting, but for what itís worth, here a few:
Lorenzilloís Live Lobster House: If you like lobsters, you might want to make a stop here. You may pick your own live lobster if you wish or ask for one according to the size/lbs you desire. There were close to 20 preparations offered. I chose to have mine steamed with a side of the spicy chipotle plum and tamarindo sauce for dipping, which was different in a yummy way. The raw oysters were also fresh and good.
Tiki Bar: This is a good spot if you are in the mood for a light meal in a casual setting. We discovered this place on a whim while walking around. When we first sat down, we didnít realize it was going to be a sushi bar, and I was a bit worried, but the rolls were very fresh and can be best described as Japanese and Mexican fusion, which was, unexpectedly, a tasty twist.
La Frida: A fine dining restaurant for great Mexican food, located in the Sunset Beach Resort. Everything we had here was delicious. I would especially recommend the tuna tartar, pork belly and lamb mole. My friend ordered the Mexican coffee, which they make at the table and was fun to watch. I donít drink coffee, but I was told it was good. Part of the decor were paintings by and of Frida Kahlo, of whom I am a big fan, so that was a bonus. The most romantic time for dining here is during sunset, sitting on the terrance.
Siempre: This establishment is located in the Pacifica Resort and offers Mediterranean Mexican fusion cuisine that was excellent all around. I had the most interesting dish on the menu, the chocolate lobster, and enjoyed it, though Iím not sure if it would suit those with a more conventional palate. There were also sushi choices, which we decided to pass on, but the selections looked appetizing and fresh. There are indoor as well as outdoor seating, and for special occasion, you may wish to reserve a semi-private table on the beach. You are guaranteed to get brownie points for the extra effort.
There was one other exceptional, authentic Mexican restaurant away from the beach that I loved, but I canít remember its name. Iíll ask and add it here if I come up with it.
I hope you have a fun and relaxing vacation.
