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.

I do not know where to begin. Hotel California took our breaths away. The decoration is so cool an eclectic, a mix of traditional Mexican with the flare of local and national art mixed in. There are so many small details that make this hotel a delight, such as the small private patio off of our room (room 1), the... More

Being huge Eagles fans, my friends and I wanted to see the hotel referred to in the famous Eagles song by the same name. We had a drink in the bar (great margaritas, by the way), shopped in the gift shop, and took some pictures. It's a funky hotel, great colors, very "Mexican" looking in the way you would imagine...

Walked in after 2 days, beautiful 1000 mile drive, down Baja, on way to a week in Cabo. Layout and atmosphere warm and friendly. Room unique and colorful. Staff ready to serve. Had the Chicken Mole (with 27 spices). So good, after week in Cabo, came back for seconds. I will stay there every time when visiting the region. Gave... More

You need to be prepared to go somewhat back in time as the rooms do not cater to those hooked on technology (no elevators either even though it is only 2 stories). This hotel is quaint, rooms are small but very, very pleasant. We had a standard room with a queen bed. The junior suites are very nice (our friends... More

and it's cool that you're at Hotel California. I didn't realize how loud the room would be when I booked it. It's on the main thoroughfare through town, so some noise was expected. The room provided no insulation from the noise though. Other than that, I was happy. Bed was comfy, shower was hot and water pressure was good. Oh,... More

We ate here last week when we visited Todos Santos while in Cabo. I ordered the "Legendary" Chicken Mole . Not so "legendary ! I considered sending it back . Chicken was very salty and the mole sauce was not very good . The Hotel itself was pretty funky and worth stopping by for a drink if in Cabo. I... More
