The staff was wonderful! Hotel is in the perfect location and stays relatively quite. The rooms are clean, simply and roomy. I enjoyed that there weren't any TVs in the rooms, however a coffee pot and a personal safe would have been nice. Really the only complaint I have is some of the guests acted like they owned the place... More

Don't get me wrong...I do love being pampered and I like all inclusive resorts, but I feel like in Cabo, there is so much to do---why waste your $$$ on an all inclusive resort? The Mar de Cortez is absolutely wonderful if you love rustic and inexpensive. I did NOT feel that the hotel was loud (as previous reviews claimed).... More

I visit Cabo a lot. With the lingering effects if the hurricane still hampering hotel rooms, I decided to stay here. I'm not special, but the place needs to spend someone's now. Can recommend to go back.

The location is great, within walking distance of so many great things. The staff is very friendly and accommodating! The rooms are simple, clean, and adequate. However, it was a frat party every single night we were there, 3 nights, the party was raging til 3am every night.

We booked this hotel last minute without having a chance to do much research and we were very pleased with our decision. First of all the staff is awesome. They are very friendly and knowledgeable. Ana at the front desk is super sweet and welcoming, even when she has to deal with unpleasant people, which we saw her have to... More

This hotel is fine if you are looking for something economical and central. The location is definitely the best part as it is 5 minutes to the marina and water taxis, and 20 minutes to the main swimming beaches/bars, but there is nothing charming about this hotel at all. The rooms are big and clean but very basic. The mattresses... More

Super nice hotel, the evening bartender Umberto is the loveliest man, treated my Mom and I really well. All the staff are great, for cheap and cheerful it's fantastic. Very clean, suitable for families, couples or solo.

Great staff, clean, cozy, close to everything - not on the beach - but walking distance - only complaint is I wish they had someway to make coffee in the room - hate getting dressed first thing in the morning to go get coffee! Great bargain.

Thank you, Carolyn H, for your favorable review. And thank you, too, for your comment re the coffee maker. Management is taking that into consideration. You are not alone in that thinking. Cozy is a great word for the property... so many folks like that kind of ambiance and to find it in downtown Cabo is a draw for many... More

Stayed there the weekend of Feb 21, 2015...at $45 a night, it was definitely worth it. If you want a view of the beach or to get there in 2 minutes, and something kinda ritzy, this isnt your spot. It is, however, a very clean place overall, the front desk is very helpful if you need anything at all (they... More

This place has the best location for being right in the heart of Cabo. Close to bars, restaurants and shopping. Not close to the beach if that is what you are looking for. This place is for the traveller that wants to spend money on other things more important than a fancy hotel room. The rooms are very clean and... More
