This is my first time staying in downtown area since I like staying at the beachfront hotels but since my friends wanted to go bar hopping I thought staying here will be fun since very close to everything especially to Cabo Wabo. I booked a room at this hotel because of the good rating from trip advisory. The price was...

This was our fifth trip to Cabo but first stay at the Mar De Cortez . The location is wonderful. You can walk to the beach in 15 min . Most restaurants are also walkable. The room is basic no tv no phone but we never needed either. The wifi worked great and I never had any trouble with it...

My husband and I came here for our honeymoon, as soon as we entered the room, I was very confused. I was looking at him and he seemed disappointed, too. I would say maybe he was embarrassed. The room was very old which is okay, but it would have been nice if the room was clean. He booked this trip...

My husband booked 3 nights in this hotel and I was very disappointed, the room was smelly and the floor needed some mopping. There were plenty of water stain (hopefully those are water stain). This room doesn't have TV, no telephone so if you need something you have to walk to the front desk. The swimming pool was not heated!...

Thank you, SadieRose1, for your forthright review of your stay with us in Cabo. Suffice it to say your review has been forwarded to management. A couple of things worth noting... we do not list TV in room or telephone in room as part of the amenities. And, in Cabo, heated swimming pools are not too frequent. Solar heating is...

I frequent a wide variety of hotel rooms. This hotel does basic perfectly!! This is not the St Regis...and the rates reflect that. If you are looking for a room with a TV, blow dryer and room service so you can hang inside all day then you will need to look elsewhere. If you are looking for clean, comfortable and...

Thank you, Denveropinion, for your most informative review. Thank you for taking the time to do so as well. And thank you for your business. Thanks for all the great info and critiquing not just of the hotel but the town, your experiences, and 'surprises'. No doubt the $10 fee was for the additional 5% Mexico tax imposed beginning 1...

“Request a room with a TV if you want one. Request a room far away from the pool if you want quiet after 8pm.”
