As a diamond member you get Continental Breakfast, they offer kosher breakfast for you like Eggs, Acevedo, vegetables and fruits If you have your own pan they will cook for you. they will charge you like $20 because its a extra/upgraded service


They offer you water/orange juice with breakfast, don't take a bottle as they charge you for that (like $10) vs the cup is included in the breakfast.

Thanks, that's helpful. Concierge email made it seem like they could order in from somewhere, similar to Hyatt but I assume that's not the case.

What is the latest with Ember? I'm chatting with them on Whatsapp and they are saying they are supervised by the chabad rabbi but they had a certificate from Europe? Very confusing

Nice, how recently were you there? Any other helpful tips for kosher or just in general? Seems like can't get Uber pickup at airport, any transfer recommendations or just tell Uber to meet at the departure drop off?

U can use hotels transportation, or there's the tour guide that was mentioned here b4 (cant remember his name) that offers pickup as well.

What I’m reading from my fellow DFFers, Ember is back under the Hashgacha of Chabad, no longer the sketchy Austrian one, can anyone confirm this?

 Also, any other restaurants near the Waldorf? Trying to figure out how much and what Kosher food to bring…

I’m looking into a trip to Cabo this summer, The Rancho Pescadero is enticing with its 30k/night through Hyatt. But a story this week gets me scared to ever book this place, and concerns me for everyone’s sake that they’re still taking bookings like nothing happened! Read the story, very scary...

Ive heard from more than one person that the food at Ember is not the greatest...
Has anyone been there recently that can confirm if anything has changed?

Thanks. I was hoping for an unbiased opinion from someone who may have visited and ate there since they reopened.

Anyone been to Cabo recently and can give us some insights?
