To do something a bit different during our stay in Baja Sur and Cabo, we decided to spend one night at the Fonda Del Mar B&B. Run by a couple of environmentally conscious expats, this should have been a great stop, and would have been except for the down right rude treatment by the owners. The room we had was nicely decorated and clean, although it had a shared shower. Lot's of warnings that the place runs on solar energy and batteries that could run out at night, but we had no problem. All-in-all a comfortable stay- except for the treament by the owners Denny and Judy.
They never made any attempt at greeting you when we arrived or during meals. One thing you expect at any B&B is a little bit of hospitality and polite conversation, but despite our best attempts at it, they didn't reciprocate. We sat down for breakfast with one of the owners and it was like pulling teeth to get a conversation going. When some of her buddies showed up after a round of golf, we were almost relieve when she again gave us the cold shoulder. At night and again in the morning, there were plenty of local expats hanging around in the bar/restaurant getting tanked, and the owners hung out with them while ignoring their few guests. It was very strange and made us glad to leave.
From reading other review, it appears that not everyone has a similar experience. Maybe we just caught them at a bad time, but based on our experience, I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to find this place.
