    I'm just curious what the room tax rate at your hotel was in cabo? I was quoted 28%.

    Can the different hotels charge different tax rates?

      I believe it can vary between resorts. Also, some resorts add a "resort fee" which ups the percentage.

      this is word for word copied and pasted from my contract with the westin, the portion about the taxes. the room rate is taxed at 17% there:

      Tarifas en D³lares Americanos, por habitaci³n, por noche, plan E.P. (sin alimentos), en ocupaci³n sencilla o doble, sujetas al 10% de IVA y al 3% de Impuesto Sobre Hospedaje.
      Las tarifas estan sujetas al 4% de cargo por servicio, el cual incluye:
      § Caf© diario en la habitacion via cafetera
      § Dos botellas de Agua en la Habitacion por estancia
      § Acceso al Seaside Putting Green
      § Acceso al gimnasio powered by reebok
      § Servicio de ama de llaves

      Keep in mind that this does not include the service fee for the bellhop (which is $6.50/pp, one time fee on arrival). Also, La Palmilla is one of the most expensive hotels in Los Cabos, so I would expect your tax on rooms to be a bit higher because it may include things that rooms at less expensive hotels don't have or don't include.

        Thanks for everyone's input.

        I spoke with O&O, the 28% does include service charges and we are getting a lot of services included in our wedding package. I tried negotiating to see if they can throw anything else into my package. No such luck.
