“What a Wonderful Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2008

What the others have said about Los Bungalows is true. We stayed here based on the TripAdvisor reviews and can only add our positive review to the pile. We stayed in an upstairs suite for a slight upcharge. We were greeted by Eric when we got out of the van with a "Welcome Home" and they mean it. My wife was absolutely thrilled with the accomodations, a small kitchen, a deck with a hammock, etc. It was the end of September ('08), so it was hot but the airconditioner in the room worked fine. The place is a short walk ( under 1/2 hr ) to most anywhere downtown or a $6 USD cab ride. We walked down and took cabs back as it was uphill and usually late when we did that. Erick and Junior were very helpful in arranging activities and their Mother Estelle is a very gracious hostess. Breakfasts were to die for and served from 8 - about 10 am. We were always there before 8 for coffee. The place is charming and carries old world charm well. Away from the night parties when you want. No alarm clock needed, the neighborhood rooster will let you know when to get up.

Well what to add here...

Like everyone says, this place is incredible. I wanted something totally off the beaten path and opposite of the traditional resort experience and this is it. Estella, Eric, and Junior are welcoming and accomodating and genuinely interested in your stay. Its truly like finding relatives you didnt know you had in Baja.

My girlfriend and I stayed 3 nights and were moved to a nicer room when the corner room we had on the second floor was found to be pretty noisy. Nicer is hard to quantify since our original base single room was nicer and cozier and more inviting than pretty much anywhere else I have stayed.

Breakfast is awesome as everyone says, although if you dont eat eggs or cheese like I don't you are stuck with fruit and toast.

To sum up this is an intimate jewel in what has become an increasingly bustling Cabo San Lucas. Believe the reviews but check it out for yourself.

Believe all the reviews because this place was beyond my expectations. Upon arriving you are greeted by Eric as if you are family. It is run by Eric, his mom Estella and brother Junior. They are all very nice people and are willing to help you in anyway. The breakfasts are the best and I made sure we were up every morning to eat breakfasts. The ladies who cook and clean and take care of surroundings are just awesome. The bungalows feels like your at a resort without the resort prices. Its also not a bad walk into town. Its about 10 to 15 minutes to town and about 15 to 20 to the marina. We did the walk everyday and never felt like we needed a taxi. I would definately stay here again
with my family. Great place, great breakfast, great surroundings and great people!!!!

Its been months since I went on vacation to Cabo and I still smile when I think about the last few days we spent at The Bungalows. In fact, I was doing a lot of smiling while I was there: when we walked in, the warm welcome and great humor made is feel happy to be there.

The rooms are beautifully decorated and designed so we felt like we had ample space: living room, kitchen and bedroom. The movie selection for in-room viewing was ample, the free toiletries were greatly appreciated and I loved having French press coffee in my room.

The pool is big and beautiful and I can only imagine how great the actual bungalow rooms are (we had a cozy suite). The breakfast was delicious...

Really, everything exceeded my expectations. I didn't like Cabo because it felt like a soul-less place but this hotel has enough charm to make up for the rest of the city's lack thereof.

  • Liked — The comfort and beauty of the rooms, the breakfasts, the staff, the pool
  • Disliked — A bit of a walk to downtown which can be tedious in the middle of a hot day

4+ Stars.....
My girlfriend and I were real happy with the Bungalows. We stayed 8 days in Cabo. Eric and his mother were great host. We did a bunch of things while we were there. I played golf at Cabo Del Sol and we went to Los Cerritos Beach. BE CAREFUL when driving towards Todos Santos. We almost were involved in a head on collision. Anyways, the bungalows was close to everything. We walked to town everyday and night. It was a nice little walk. The rooms were nice and spacious and the maids did a good job of keeping it clean. I will definitely stay at the Bungalows again.

Our family stayed here five days in July. We booked directly after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. We had them book a "suburban" which truned out to be an Escalade that met us at the airport. I had read about pushy timeshare salesmen, but did not find it was really bad at the airport, maybe because it was the low season. We could have gone in a taxi and saved some money. We arrived at the hotel within an hour of our planes arrival, and were met by Eric with a big "abrazo" hug for each of us, and shown to our second floor patio bungalow, which was two bed rooms in back and a living and kitchen area on the patio, which was enclosed by sliding glass. In the heat of the summer the patio can be too hot, but you can leave the air conditioned bedroom doors open and the ceiling fan on, and it is fine. The breakfasts are excellent as others have stated. It is about a mile walk to the Paraiso Mall (a Galaria style mall with upscale shopping and restaurants) or to the Finistierre Hotel, which lets you use their pools and beach. The pool and landscaping in the Bungalows is beautiful, and you don't really have to go anywhere. My only complaints were that it was a bit too hot in the middle of summer when there was no breeze, and that we had to close the windows at night, because a neighbor's rooster would wake us up too early. The real reason for the success of the Bungalows is the management, a family who are not the owners, but who were the best I have seen at taking care of guests. You can not get better value for the money anywhere in Cabo San Lucas.

We spent five nights here in paradise! The hosts are welcoming and it truly feels like you are entering a family environment that loves what they do!
Eric was warm and friendly. He recommended some amazing restaurants and the best places to enjoy the beach. He also drove us to our airport shuttle, provided free movies, popcorn and fresh squeezed juice!
Breakfasts were indescribeable, we were looking forward to sleeping in but found ourselves waking up simply for the food!
Have no hestitation in staying here, you will not regret it! Would be the perfect honeymoon or romantic getaway.
