We arrived to find nobody on premises. When the owner arrived, he was clearly intoxicated and making inappropriate political comments. The bathroom was tiny to the point of being almost unusable. We only stayed one night, and found the entire stay to be a bit bizarre.

I was there from Thursday though Monday with friends and had a fantastic escape from day to day stresses. The rooms are affordable, the huevos rancheros or the scrambled eggs and bacon for breakfast were generous helpings, and the lobster dinner Eddy (owner) cooked us was off the hook. This place was the real Mexico. The locals are friendly and... More

We had a great time here, and the Suites were very nice. Absolutely wonderful location, and not even a 20 foot walk out our door to the beach! There was excellent snorkeling, and free kayaks to use whenever we wanted! I just loved this place and will definitely use it again!

We called it our redneck camping after seeing how packed our trailer and trucks were. We found El Cardonal on the web and decided to give it a try. Here in Baja, it's a tradition of local families to go out camping on easter weekend. El Cardonal is located on the east cape, just 40 minutes away from Los Barriles... More
