Hotel Santa Fe Los Cabos by Villa Group
Ranked #45 of 70 Hotels in Cabo San Lucas
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 January 2014

This hotel is not for everyone, see previous reviews. We stayed three days over New Years eve and enjoyed the proximety to Cabo Central. Would walk up to the main area, stay for 3 - 4 hours, back to the hotel for a couple hours, rest, then back up again.

This hotel is for the budget traveler and for the location, so don't expect more. Room clean, but old, breakfast minimal, but will get you to an early lunch or late breakfast. This was our purpose and I was satisfied. At first I wasn't sure of the security, but after arriving back from new years celebrating, we found the gate locked with a security guard. I was fine after that.

My suggestion would be that they install water efficient shower heads(couldn't be more then $40 - $50 to do this) as this could help with the shortage of hot water when the hotel was full.

The three days were quiet and it seemed that the residents were couples and families. Could hear some noise in the room next door, but overall relaxing.

The area leading up to Cabo central had a mix of many small restaurants and services. Had breakfast at a place directly across from the Thai restaurant on the same side of the street. Delicious, hot, good price and great service. Could have stayed in the area a couple of more days to enjoy the area and of course Cabo environment. My wife got her hair done for $25 at one of the shops. There is a Reiki place near by, but reservations are needed. Had some traditional Mexican food at an open air place and took coffee at an open air place that had a guy with a great voice singing traditional songs. One house along the route had a twenty four hour party going. They saw us many times walking by and at one point waved us over. They were a little drunk, so we declined.

A couple of blocks down the street there was a hotel Cabo Cush and I was shown a very clean room and bathroom. They said they offered hot water, so they must know their competition down the street. Didn't seem the same security as Santa Fe, but the doors did have stronger locks.

This was a nightmare. Drunk guests passing out in front of our room, smoking, cigarettes all over, seeds on the floor. Bad service and not clean. The breakfast is either one banana or a small cup of melon. You have to choose and cannot get more. And each guest is entitled to only two pieces of bread and some jam. That's it. We left the hotel and moved up the street two blocks away to another hotel.

Room Tip: Do not go there

It really is well located, really close to the Clubs and the downtown. If you want to spend more money on the atractions that Cabo offers than in a hotel, this is the place. The service is trustworthy and also the mini-market and the laundry are a nice bonus.

The Santa Fe hotel was a great choice for our first visit to Los Cabos. Well is situated near to downtown easy acess to come, its very nice and quiet place.
The room was lovely and very spacious. Bed was very comfortable. Hotel staff accommodating, especially the valet service.

Stayed 2 weeks - cheap but no hot water many days and no water on others. Ok if you need a convenient base in Cabo but not a place to go for romance!! not much more to say but only 10 minutes from party bars and marina area

Room Tip: no elevator and courtyard pool can be noisy so if you can do the stairs opt for top floors

We booked this last minute due to its proximity to downtown and the great price we saw. It's true that it was only 5-6 blocks from all the big clubs and restaurants but those blocks change very quickly towards this el centro neighborhood. At night it feels a little more abandoned and off the tourist routes though I never felt unsafe. If you like a more authentic stay, and don't care about luxury resorts, this could be for you. We are in our 20's so didn't mind but wouldn't recommend it for an older couple or family unless you're trying to save money.

On a plus side, there is a mini market and laundry attached to the hotel. They have a small complimentary breakfast of café and toast. The staff was not very helpful in most tourist related questions so don't count on them if you didn't do your research. But from mine I'll tell you there is a shuttle back to the airport for $18/person from the Wyndham hotel (a short taxi or long walk). We paid 50p for a taxi from the hotel. When coming from the airport, you can get a shuttle for $16 per person from the desk inside. Don't bother with the tourist tour traps outside. Or $80 for a taxi they said.

The rooms were very average with plenty of storage space. Kitchen faucet and roaster oven with a/c. Bathroom was eh. Somewhat small. Shower head sprayed everywhere and wasn't very new looking. Again, not a resort. More of a Super 8 in Mexico.

I do recommend going to El pollo de oro for food and drink located 1 block over and 3 blocks down. Food is good and cheap and drinks are far less expensive than the big guys down the way. A great place to start your night before they close at 10.

You can walk to the beach but takes about 20-25 min. The marina route is the quickest.

My husband and i went on vacation and we wanted a not too expansive hotel but clean and friendly, well, this is it! i was greeted by the manager and his staff and they where very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very clean,the little kitchenettes are very accessible and and the price is awesome. What really made this vacation worth was the staff. They take it personally to make you feel at home.
Thank you for the wonderful experience. See you next year.
