“Average hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

Although this hotel is a block from Medano Beach, it has no views of the beach whatsoever. You literally look at ugly apartments and abandoned lots or the front of a much nicer hotel across the street. The rooms are nice enough inside (although dated) and there is a very cool looking bar/restaurant. A glass of wine will run you around 16$ though and a meal for two is at least 80$. The door men are great and friendly but the front desk people don't even smile or say hello. They barely look up at you when you're checking in or asking a question. It would have been well worth it to stay at one of the resorts on the beach. It is also the only way to escape the many people who badger you to buy goods on the beach.

Room Tip: A lower floor might give you access to wifi which is only available in the lobby.

Bahia is more like a boutique hotel... quieter, less crowded, and with great rooms. Centrally located within walking distance to the beach, the downtown areas, the marina & the mall. Appreciated the upgrade to a poolside room since only a single bed was available on the first day, but a little disappointed when we asked for a cot bed, & was told it would be an extra charge.Transferring to another room with 2 beds the next day was not a problem. Microwave & refrigerator in the rooms were a plus. Didn't like their choice of shampoo/conditioner - too manly smelling. Loved having the healthy choices (smoothies, shakes) in the coffee bar & excellent food in the hotel restaurant. Only negative was the lack of WIFI - only available in the lobby & when it works, very slow. Printing out boarding passes took longer than usually, but appreciate the computer/printer accessibility. Lovely & friendly staff!

Room Tip: Pool access rooms were convenient.

We visited for a week on a Groupon deal and upgraded to a newly refurbished 2-Bdr suite with polished concrete counters and floors, kitchen, dining room, 3 TVs, 2 bathrooms and two patios. Very spacious accommodations. Beds sit on concrete platforms so they are very firm (hard). We faced the street (or I should say the large imposing facade of the Hotel Dorado across the street) but it's a quiet side street. Noise not an issue. Lack of WiFi was an issue however.
Staff is gracious and accommodating. Manuel the concierge is superior. Dustin the doorman also exceptionally friendly and helpful as was Amir who checked us in.
Pool area is well kept and inviting. Can get loud (there was a noisy wedding group when we were there)
Food was ok for gringo food, but the prices were way too high. We therefore only ate there once and used Yelp and asked locals for restaurant recommendations. In the town, Caterina de mis Sabores was a favorite-very clean; try the chile relleno and the chilaquiles verde-good fish tacos, too; Mariscos de Mazatlan was touristy but the fresh fish was excellent; Los Claros for fish was also recommended but it was closed. Tacos Guss -just a little too dirty for me and the tacos were no better than what we get here in LA.
On Medrano beach stay away fr the Mango Deck unless you like to watch drunk tourists doing stupid things. The Hotel Dorado's restaurant overlooking the water had a spectacular setting, a kind wait staff but forgettably mediocre gringo food. Probably the best shrimp and fish ceviche (for $2.50!) we've ever eaten was at the tiny little Omega Sport bar and restaurant in the sand next to the Mango Deck.
Andromeda Sport had decent fruit plates, fruit smoothies, toasted bagels and oatmeal for breakfasts.

We just spent a weekend at the Bahia in Cabo. Overall it was a good experience but there are a few things to note to make the next trip better.

First the good:
This is a smaller hotel that is a bit quiter, but has quick access to the party spots if you're interested. It's a short walk to ME Cabo and Nikki Beach. It's a short walk to The Office and Edith's restaurants. And it's a short walk to Medano Beach. It's a very reasonable walk to the marina and nightlife (would not recomend trying to walk that distance in heels, but wedges are ok for the ladies). And the best thing about it is that it's about a third the price as ME Cabo but as close or closer to everything.

The food at the bar was very good (we had a margarita pizza that hit the spot for a light lunch). Drinks were good at the bar as well.

The pool is pretty chill and there is a swim-up bar that you can enjoy. There is also a hot tub at the bar as well. And there are hamocks placed around the property.

Ok, so now the not so good (sort of):

Some of the rooms are newly renovated and some are not. You want one of the new ones. When we arrived, our room was not one of the new ones. My wife was a little disappointed with it, and the lighting was really bad (to the point where she couldn't see into her suitcase very well looking for specific things). The bed was also very hard. There was a big counter with a stove top in the middle that just took up a lot of the floor space unnecessarily.

When we went down to our friends room and saw how open thier floor plan was with a nice polished concrete counter (tucked along the wall, out of the way with no stove top) polished stone flooring, and plenty of lighting; she went from a little disappointed to a lot disappointed. We wound up requesting an upgrade the next day and got a room with direct access to the pool that was one of the newely renovated rooms. The bed was also a lot more comfortable which was good as we wound up being sun burned and needing the softer mattress. It was an extra $60 a night and she said she was fine with staying in the other room, but after we moved to the new one she admitted she was glad we did.

Overall I would recommend this hotel to both families and groups of friends, however I would also be willing to try a different hotel on our next trip. Would depend on pricing is all.

Room Tip: Ask for newly renovated rooms. Free Wifi but works best in public areas. Picks up sporadically in...

Thank you for your review. As you mentioned we are in a great location and walking distance to most of what Cabo has to offer. The combination of price, location, and quality of service has been a fovorite feature for our guests.

This fall we will be renovating additional rooms and provoding more deluxe rooms to our inventory.

Thank you again for taking the time to share your comments and hope to see you again in the near future.

Loved this hotel, it was quiet and well cared for. You did not have to deal with people trying to sell you a condo like in alot of the Cabo resorts. Staff was excellent and its location was only one block from Medano Beach with all the restaurants and attractions. Only disappointment was there is not wi-fi in the rooms as advertised on their website. Wi-fi is only available in the lobby and bar area.

Thank you for your review. We are a lifestyle hotel and not a timeshare property. We do not solicit our guests and try and provide a relaxing enviroment for there vacation. A place of casual elegance where service is the priority.

One can be very active taking advantage of the many activities Cabo has to offer or just relax and enjoy a peaful trip without interuption.

My wife and I stayed there for 5 days and loved it! The hotel is only a block from the beach! The food at the the Bahia is fantastic. Everyone working there were very friendly and helpful. Manual, the concierge, is a super nice guy and extremely helpful. He should be your first contact! The pool was clean and never very crowded. I would go back there tomorrow if I could! The only thing that could be improved is the extent of the wifi. Day three we discovered that it worked in our bathroom, freakin funny! Other than that, no troubles.

This was a beautiful hotel, centrally located, and perfect to get to both the city and the beach. Everything was clean, the pool area was really nice, and the restaurant was great. Overall we had a comfortable and nice stay. If you're looking for something central and nice, this is a great place. It definitely has a modern feel to it, which was also nice, and our rooms were reasonably priced. The restaurant costs a little more, but it's great food and a fun atmosphere and view, so it's nice for a good dinner. It truly was the perfect location for my friend and I to scope out Cabo for an upcoming wedding. The bellman at the front were great about helping us find Cabo SUP when we wanted to go our paddleboarding and asked us how everything went when we came back. The front desk staff was also nice, not necessarily personal, but very efficient and pleasant. We were two females traveling together and felt incredibly safe both in and around the hotel. Overall it's a great hotel and I'd certainly recommend it for anyone wanting a central location to enjoy Cabo.

Thank you for your review. You have pointed out something very important for our future guests and that's safety. The Federal goverment recognizes that Cabo is the jewel of the Mexican tourist market and is committed to ensuring its safety. With one road in and out, Cabo geographic isolation creates a safe enviroment. The new airport and improved roads also are a sign of the federal goverments committment to Cabo. As two females it is great to hear your comments and that you enjoyed your expereince at the Bahia.

The Stand Up Paddle Boarding has become a favorite activity for our guests and am glad you tried it.

The doorman and concierge are there to help create a memorable experience.

Thank you for coming and staying at the Bahia for your first trip to Cabo and we will look forward to seeing you on your next trip!!
