“globetrotter recommended!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

As an avid traveler I have seen a variety of accommodation, and this place ranks as one of my favorite because it was authentic, charming, clean, beautiful and peaceful, yet had amazing access to downtown AND the area where the locals eat (also highly recommended!). The family who run it are friendly but non-invasive. They do only speak Spanish (seriously, nada uno word of English), so try to come a little prepared (i.e. don't be a complete gringo) when you show up! Enjoy this little slice of paradise! I will absolutely return to this sweet little place Cuando yo regrese a Baja California Sur, México!

Had moved down to Cabo Pulmo from Portland Oregon to take a job helping out in a small dive resort. The place was run terribly and we had to leave them in our dust. Checked out several budget accomodations including the local hostel before miraculously running into this gem. Forget the location, (we easy walked to the strip to grab a drink) or the quaint, well equipped rooms, ( each one decorated differently and named after a famous Mexican women) , it was the hospitality from this family run inn which makes it unforgettable.

They look after you. The owner shared a rather tall glass of his tequila with me even though he couldn't drink because he was taking medicine. You're sure to have a few laughs as he jokes and you understand half of it.

In the morning the lady of the house whips up the best coffee I have ever had and fresh fruit so sweet and juicy you're likely to giggle like a school child. All while relaxing in what is best described as an open roof garden with a fountain right in the middle of the joint. The fountain makes for the perfect spot to take and post pictures to make everyone jealous back home.

If you are like me and can't stand the big box tourist thing, than this is the place for you. We had to hang around to get our visas back and checked out a lot of places. Hot showers, charming rooms, wonderful hosts, and a ten minute walk to the bars. Thank you to everyone at Norman Diegos!

This place is so cute. By far my favorite hotel in Mexico. The family who runs this are all so friendly and nice. The courtyard and palapa very peacefully and relaxing. The room quiet, clean, comfortable, and with great attention to detail. I'm going to be sending my family to Baja just to stay here. A great value, delicious coffee and breakfast. I would give it 5 stars all around but sometimes trip advisor will filter out the reviews. Please give this family your business at a great rate. True Mexico.

We felt very lucky to have found this little gem in Cabo San Lucas. Close to everything, but away from the hustle bustle. The owner was warm and gracious, and his assistant was friendly, and able to help with translations. The room was very clean, breakfast was lovely and the atrium a joy. Nice artwork - the whole place showed a sense of care and taste. I would highly recommend a stay here.

The staff is extremely nice and helpful!!! We had an incredible time!! They helped us a lot, with information not only about Cabo San Lucas, they also gave us tips about La Paz, Todos Santos and Cabo Pulmo (Touristic attractions, accommodation, transportation, restaurants, night life, diving …)
The location of the place is perfect!! Just some blocks away from the clubs and restaurants, the shopping and the beach!! The rooms are really nice and clean, the breakfast is very good, and they usually will cook anything that you want!! quesadillas, omelet, sandwich, and the chilaquiles are the house specialty , we even got free beers a couple of times!!! :D
At the end , Junior saved or lives and drove us to the airport (we were late) for an incredible price!! Thanks a lot!! We hope to go back some day!!

These people are wonderful Christian folks. They are so friendly and caring. The breakfast is good. They serve good coffee, pastries, juice and fruit parfait. The Inn is 2 blocks south of the main drag there in Cabo and about 4 blocks east. We were two females and came in pretty late at night but walking through the neighborhood wasn't bad. Of course I wouldn't just hang out at 2'am on the block but in general, this place is safe. They lock the gate at 10pm and give you a key. You feel really cozy here. They also have free high speed internet which the other 4 star resort we stayed at in Cabo charged for!

There are dogs that live in the houses nearby. They do howl and bark sometimes but that made it more authentic. It wasn't bothersome to me.

We loved staying at the Mexican Inn..it was so quaint, warm and romantic. Julia was fantastic..she was so helpful in recommendations and a super hostess. She would have our table set for breakfast..delicious pastries/breads with jam,fresh fruit,coffee and juice. It is served outside in the courtyard with views of the fountain..you can watch little birds bathing in the water and the sun rays that come gleeming in from the open roof above. The courtyard is very tropical with lots of different plants and pottery and gorgeous mexican tile. The rooms are cosy..and having a priivate bath was great. The marina and the shops and restaurants of downtown cabo were just a few blocks and minutes away..we walked everywhere.. I would definitely stay there again..hospitality and price were unmatched. it is true about the barking dog across the street but someone it didnt seem to bother me that much.. the internet was very slow in the room but a block away is an internet store where you can use a computer for one dollar and hour..and it was fast!
