This is the place that put Todos Santos on the map. It is a beautifully restored older building with gorgeous local art everwhere. The restaurant serves excellent food and great drinks. The service is friendly. The place can get pretty packed at lunch but the service is still great. After 3, the day trippers from Los Cabos have mostly gone,... More

The Hotel has its real story and the story that connects it to the Eagles. Which ever version you pick it will work for you. An easy and interesting bus ride from Cabo San Lucas on Aguila Bus Lines the depot is one block up and one block over to the Hotel California. They are expanding the restaurant and it... More

We've been wanting to stay at the Hotel California for a very long time. As we got engaged on the Baja is only seemed natural to celebrate in a classy and rememberable way. Glad we had this opportunity. Magnificent ambience. Great staff and the food is wonderful. Wondering around Todo Santos you'll find all sorts of artisans, crafts, amazing artists.... More

My family and I had dinner here on New Years. This is a mature, nicely renovated property. The restaurant has ample dining indoor and out. It was a very nice evening, good food, not too loud entertainment and a night full of stars. One employee did offer the "official" Eagles connection. Supposedly Don Felder either came through or spent the... More

Great service and a solid menu. We will be back to enjoy dinner, which i think will be great. Charming town. Shopping was no deal, but the... More
