“Beauty in the details at this Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2012

Bungalows is completely different than any other hotel we have ever stayed. It doesnt have the feel of a "big" resort or hotel because its not. From the very beginning I was impressed with the service. Every reservation is booked through the owner, Patricia, who is a joy to work with and very nice.

About the hotel - I would guess there is ~10-15 rooms here which allows the innkeepers to attend each guest and they are very attentive to the details. As my title hints, the beauty of this place IS in the details - everything from the unique architecture, the different-really comfortable chairs around the grounds, to the old fashioned phone that you hold with both hands, and the video lending library sets Bungalows apart. The innkeepers Maria and her son are always offering help with restaurant choices and arranged our return limo ($55) to the airport.

Its no wonder why this place got the Best of 2012 for Bargain hotels. With the price ranging from $75-$180/nt its no wonder. Top it all off, breakfast is included and its GREAT! During our stay we enjoyed french toast stuffed with cream cheese and macadamia nuts topped with carmalized banana's, fresh fruit, and a really good smoothie.

The only thing that isnt maxed in my review is location. Bungalows is walking distance to great eateries like Maro's, Mama Mia Pizza, etc (8 min), about 1 mile to the Marina (15 min), and about 1 mile to the beach (20 min). Definitely not a deal breaker, but be advised. This is also a benefit because there is virtually no noise at nights.

Room Tip: Try Mama Mia's pizza for delivery or Maro's for Lobster, Shrimp, and Steak for $15 when you...

Jan. 2012. We just wanted a relaxing vacation this year. We had our sites set on Cabo and saw the wonderful ratings for this hotel. The price high or low didn't even enter into our minds. We just wanted a Mexican style place that was peaceful. We had such a relaxing vacation! I read quite a few reviews before choosing this place. This year we were not interested in staying on the beach. This place is a walk to the beach. You do hear some street noise and a few dogs barking once in a while along with a rooster now and then,which I found quaint, but I took the advise of others by just putting the air conditioning fan on low at night and we had no issues. The grounds and rooms are impeccably kept, we had one with a patio, and all of the staff from the front desk to the kitchen which served those unbelievable breakfasts were wonderful. The new better website to see the place is at www.bungalowshotel.com.
It was our anniversary so our children emailed and they had champagne, fruit and chocolates for us and wouldn't take a dime from our children. Now that's customer service!

Go if you are looking for a tranquil, relaxing vacation with wonderful service.
The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is the location to the water and no TV access, although they had free movies and free WiFi. It really was only a 10 minute walk, which we enjoyed, but you need to know that before booking.
I have never had a more relaxing vacation!

Room Tip: I would highly recommend getting a room with private outdoor. We took a 2 bedroom which wasn't n...

We stayed at the Bungalows April 2011. I wanted something different than the resort atmosphere and I got that and even more. The stay was wonderful. We were welcomed at the door like we were coming home. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I woke up each morning looking forward to the best breakfast in all of Cabo (or anywhere for that matter). I would highly recommend staying at the Bungalows even if it's just for one night.

Our family of 4 stayed in one of the Bungalows after a week at one of the big resorts on the beach. It was a very welcome change from the crowds and a great opportunity for us to explore parts of town most tourists staying on the beach never see. The accomodations were modest yet VERY comfortable and clean. Best of all, we were finally able to relax after a week of dodging beach vendors and uptight tourists. We can't say enough about the freindly atmosphere of the Bungalows. Our hosts were phenomenal! Be prepared for a bit of traffic noise in the evenings and the occasional dog barking but these were minor inconveniences that we easily overcame. It felt like home.

We stayed here two nights, during the Christmas holiday. Even before our arrival, the owners provided us with detailed(!!!) and excellent driving instructions, so getting there was no problem. Check-in was fast and efficient, and the owner took us to our room and showed us around. The room was cozy and fine for two people.

The Bungalows is, at best, a 10-minute walk to downtown Cabo, but it's nestled in a neighborhood, so you're away from the grit and rawness of town. The place can be a bit noisy, especially if a dog is barking or if someone on the street has a loud vehicle. Still, the grounds of the place leave you feeling like you're in a small tropical resort. We didn't use the pool, but in listening to those who did, kids loved it and everyone said the water was very warm.

They serve a simple breakfast in the morning and DVDs are available to check-out and watch in your room, The Internet worked well.

I highly recommend this place!

Room Tip: Some rooms are closer to the pool than others. If you don't want 'pool noise,' ask for a...

We stayed here for only one night but would definitely be back if we return to Cabo. The hotel is in a neighborhood, about a 10 minute walk to the marina. The grounds are exquisite, and the suite was large, very comfortable, and beautifully decorated. While it's true that there is some road noise, just using the fan obliterates it. The service and the breakfast were outstanding. This is one of the nicest places we have ever had the pleasure to stay.

We loved the ambiance and the Mexican flavour of the Bungalows. The setting was tropical, clean and very relaxing.
A bit of an uphill walk for me but the other family members enjoyed the walks several times a day.

I would recommend The Bungalows and hope to return.

Room Tip: The Honeymoon suite and the Hammock Suites are very nice. What I saw of the others was as nice just...
