This Hotel did not accept our Expedia confirmation number, we were lucky and did get our rooms BUT 2 couples did not (they had even paid when they reserved). They seem to be in a labor dispute, fortunately we took enough cash to pay (They are not accepting any cards at Hotel, bar and restaurant). We had a good time... More

Best part of hotel is their location - right on the beach. I didn't use their restaurant or bar so can't comment on them. I did use pool and it was packed with families. Room is rather small and no remote control for TV. All TV stations in Spanish so I didn't watch. Also, the TV was about fifteen years... More

A fantastic meal, fantastic ambiance (right on the beach -- especially... More

Had no reservations. Just drove to San Felipe. First night's motel was AWFUL (no names), so it was a pleasant surprise leave that one and rent a casita (right on the beach) at Motel El Cortez. Clean, neat and friendly. The bathroom/shower area could use a little updating, but overall good. I would definitely stay at one of their casitas... More

The Hotel itself is clean but needs some repairs, but then most average hotels in Mexico do. The view from the second floor rooms is great. The rooms are large, the mattresses need to be replaced. The Barefoot bar right on the beach is fun. Especially at happy hour. The hotel restuarant is very good with excellent service. They have... More
