We stayed in room 118 on the first floor in the back inside corner
The price was right!
Close to Everything (downtown Cabo)
Baja Peppers restaurant on site. (easy to get morning coffee since no coffee maker in room)
Bed was very comfortable
lack of power outlets
lighting in the room was not good (2 lights in each room)
difficult to find a chair near the pool (some people claimed their chairs the entire week we were there)
no hair dryer, iron, coffee maker etc.
We met a lot of really nice people there. We stayed for 8 days and went out sight seeing almost every day. the lazy days we sat around the pool were pleasant. The people staying there for several weeks made for a good community in the courtyard. They BBQ'd and played music all day and the place was very quiet after 9pm. The room seemed dark at night with only 2 lights in the room. The internet was spotty, but a friend staying at a $600/night resort had the same issue (and they paid an addition $12/day for internet) Mar de Cortez the internet is not an extra charge. The internet is fairly slow everywhere in cabo. I did purchase an extension cord to use my computer on the patio since there was no outlet outside.
We ate at Baja Peppers at least once per day and they were friendly and the food was good.
Except when we used the free breakfast coupon the waiter became rude and ignored us.
The pool was cold as it is "solar heated" that is very environmentally friendly.
They have water coolers in the lobby which is awesome to fill a water bottle, some places are rude and charge $4US or more for a bottle of water. I needed water because it is always hot and sunny.
Overall Hotel Mar De Cortez was a pleasant place to call home for a week.
