I just returned from a week at Los Colibris, and I am happy to report that it is my new favorite place! The claim on their website that they have the best view in Todos Santos?? TOTALLY true. You won't find a better view. The casitas are on a hillside which overlooks a lagoon filled with tons of birds (bring binoculars!) and surrounded by palm trees. Just on the other side of the lagoon is the ocean and miles and miles and miles of sandy beach.
It is about a 10 minute hike to the beach, where you will virtually have the place to yourself. I think the most people we ever saw at one time in a two mile stretch of beach is 10. This is not a swimming beach (not safe) but wow! there were gray whales all OVER the place, coming as close as 15 meters from the beach. We also saw dolphins swim by one day. If you so choose, the dogs of the owners (Bryan and Sergio) of Los Colibris will join you to the beach if you are needing a pet fix :)
One of my favorite spots was hanging out on the rooftop patio of my casita. I spent hours and hours sipping coffee (a.m.) or wine (p.m.) and reading a book, watching the whales, soaking in the sun. This was a perfect place to get away from all the activity of life, and get fully relaxed. I also liked relaxing next to the pool (can take a dip if you get too hot) - the pool area is STUNNING - the designers outdid themselves! We loved using the hot tub in the cool evenings too. The sunsets from Los Colibris are also the best you'll find.
Some other notes:
Owners Bryan and Sergio are AWESOME
Their staff is professional
I felt completely safe at all times
The room was basic but quite nice - king size high-quality bed and bedding, lovely tile shower, and other niceties (fridge for the beer!)
Rent a car - it really is the best way to get from airport to Todos Santos, and back and forth from Los Colibris to town for meals and shopping - we didn't have any trouble with car rental and did not have any trouble driving or navagating the roads.
I will definitely be returning!
