4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW via mobile

I stayed two nights here, of which the second was for free - including free dinner - due to a slight bathroom problem in the first room that I'm sure they've already fixed. Very friendly and accommodating staff that made the second day lovely. The town is very pittoresque and the atmosphere relaxing despite numerous souvenir stores. I'm now proudly wearing the... More

My husband and I decided last minute that we just needed a few days away to relax. We had been to Todos Santos on previous trips and decided to stay there for three nights. I chose Hotel California based on the reviews and the pictures and it was just perfect for us! We stayed in Room #5 - the Penthouse.... More

During our stay in Cabo, we drove up the coast to checkout the Hotel California. We did not stay in the hotel, so this review does not reflect the actual "hotel" part. But, basically, it is a big gift shop. Nothing to get excited about. We spent a few minutes looking around wondering "is this all?" and then walked around... More

Since our store is a small part of the Hotel California, I hope that you will come and stay with us sometime. We are far from the crowds of Los Cabos where you can enjoy the quiet and relaxation of our Hotel. We have 11 beautifully renovated (and air-conditioned rooms), two great restaurants and a fun staff to tell you... More

When traveling to the southern Baja do take the time to take the hour drive up the west coast on highway 19 to the small town of Todos Santos. The highway used to go through town but with the new by-pass you will need to exit and drive the old highway to the center of town. There in the north... More

Though surrounded by vendors and tourist shops, this iconic hotel stands up well. Was visually beautiful and the staff were very helpful and fun. It's worth going to if in Todos Santos area. How could you not go, everyone humming about pink champagne on ice.

A must visit stay and location, beach is far from hotel but is definitely worth it, history surrounds the hotel, great for family and friends. It's a very nice experience for everyone looking for a good time.

Hotel California had the best green chili chicken enchiladas I have ever eaten. In fact they had the best Hibiscus margaritas and chocolate mousse pie too. The owner even gave me her Wi-Fi so I could check in from Hotel California. Just beautiful grounds all together. Will definitely go back again.
