We stopped in after a great day enjoying the town's galleries. Lunch was not that great and service was lacking. But consider the lead in for them with the name. Great town filled with wonderful art and friendly people.

Stopped in for a quick breakfast and wifi use. The orange juice was to die for. I could have bathed in it and been happy. The chilaquiles were also super tasty, a little americanized compared to other places we had eaten in Baja, but still tasty. Outdoor atmosphere was great and you couldnt even tell that the Hurricane had ripped... More

We did not stay at hotel but wish we would have stayed at least one night. Very nice inside. Great gift shop - bought lots of tees etc. One of the best breakfast restaurant experiences we had on our 7 day Mexico vacation. Highly recommend the French Toast!!

Not to be a spoiler, but I didn't see the big deal about this hotel. Yes, it is supposedly referenced in that famous song by the Eagles . . though even that is in dispute. We made a day trip from San Jose over to Todos Santos with a friend who had spent a good deal of time there a... More

My son & I spent a night at this amazing hotel this sept. while fishing & diving in LaPaz. It was even better than I imagined it. I have been listening to the song since '77, and even though it might not be connected, there is so much to stir your thoughts. It is situated in a town where there... More

An incredibly charming spot. Don't let the mainstream name deter you, they say there's no relation to the song. Hotel California is colorful and vibrant with a lovely boutique feel. The private pool was lovely, and there seemed to be endless crevices of charming art, colorful corners, and a total immersion into Mexican charm. The restaurant was good, but we... More

Never seen such an eclectic collection of art, colour and design techniques as are on display at the Hotel California. And the food and dining ambiance were also outstanding! The staff were extremely friendly and the owner Debbie Stewart (a Canadian expat) is a wealth of local information. A must visit if you're anywhere in the southern Baja.

..and ended up staying for four. Great place, rich with art history, culture, colorful design and friendly staff that we learned have grown up with the owners for more than a decade. There is something to be said of a staff as loyal as that and it heavily influenced our decision to continue booking. Everyone was friendly, patient with our... More
