“Delight small hotel in Todos Santos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

We spent two nights at Hotelito in mid-December 2013. It's a charming place, with very well-decorated and comfortable rooms and bathrooms. Many thoughtful touches are provided, such as robes, beach or pool towels, hammocks, outdoor seating areas, barbeque grills, and a noise-cancelling machine. (Don't worry, the property is in a very quiet area, but a rooster might decide it's time to crow before you agree. :) Nice pool and lounge area as well.

Unfortunately, the owner Jenny was away during our stay, but the place seemed to run well even in her absence. Her local staff might be short on English, but they're long on charm and great service.

We would happily come back to Todos Santos and El Hotelito. We recommend this place highly. It's a bargain!

Room Tip: They all looked great.

I left Hotelito 4 days ago and the warm glow remains...unaffected by the current wintery greyness of London. 4 days there were pure bliss. My next stay will certainly be much longer - you literally feel the stresses of life melt away with the beautiful surroundings, quiet beaches with turtles, whales and friendly horses grazing nearby, stunning sunsets, lovely restaurants, just the right sized town, etc, etc.

I'm afraid I might bore people with stories of this gem I discovered with friends. We stayed in both the hotel and attached gorgeous 3 bedroom house... all very tastefully decorated. If Jenny and her team were not so amazing, I would definitely not be writing a review for fear of too many people discovering Hotelito. I'm selfish that way ;)

Jenny has set out to create a 5star Bed and Breakfast and she has more than achieved it. it was a magical gettaway, so relaxing, comfortable and beautifully done yet you felt you were having a rustic hidden away holiday, away from all the nonsense, the resorts and the other tourists. We stayed in the Chilicote House next door which was perfect. a huge 3 bedroom house with various balconies, terraces, and a garden. We caught a Marlin with the fishermen and then BBQed it back at Chilicote. a short walk to the deserted wild beach with its gorgeous sunsets and sea turtles. a slightly longer walk into town with the Hotel California, art galleries and great restaurants. paradise!

Room Tip: if there are 4 of you, grab the Chilicote house! it's such a good deal!

Stayed here as part of Escape to Shape, and was throughly blown away by how beautiful and relaxing the entire property was. Jenny and her team are so thoughtful and welcoming, it is hard not to fall in love with your stay.

The rooms are incredibly charming, bridging comfort with Mexican authenticity. They are not like the over-produced options that also exist within the area. Jenny was really able to capture the magic of Todos Santos in her attention to detail.

The salt-water pool was amazing, as were the surrounding hammocks and pool beds - perfect for a traditional Mexican siesta! If you have the chance, you must have dinner on the property and see if Franny can make you one of her amazing tamales. Those tamales... The best.

The location of Hotelito is also perfect - right by the beach and right by town.

What a chance discovery when we had to move out of the Hotel California for a wedding party! This spectacularly done hotel, walking distance from Todos Santos town and nearby beaches was perfect. The rooms are all individually and extremely tastefully decorated. Huge comfortable beds. Each room has its own outside area with sofas, sun loungers and hammocks.

Breakfast hit the spot. Served from 8.30 am in a communal area. Jenny the owner often pops down for a chat over huevos a la mexicana and can offer advice on places to eat in town and evening activities.

Great salt water pool with loads of sun loungers and hammocks to while away an afternoon after hard core surfing in the morning at Playa Pastora.

Can't recommend it enough

We just wrapped up an amazing 2 week stay at The Hotelito. Jenny & her staff could not have been more warm, open, welcoming, hospitable & accommodating. The rooms are all well appointed, thoughtfully decorated in a beach-chic, eclectic style, a style that permeates the entire property… and makes it feel as if you are staying at friends private beach house rather than a typical hotel!

We loved is so much we are headed back again in January! This is definitely our new home away from home in Todos Santos!

We stayed at Hotelito over the summer this year as part of our USA 3 week trip. It is truly a unique place with a series of amazing beaches nearby, incredibly friendly staff and wonderful relaxing bedrooms. It was a remarkable part of our holiday and we left feeling we had experienced something special.
