I spent 4 nights at the Hotel Mar de Cortez and enjoyed every minute of it. The hotel was very well maintained and the property grounds were very well kept. The rooms were basic but had everything you need to be comfortable. The best part of the Hotel was hands down the pool. The pool was the cleanest pool I... More

Hotel Mar de Cortez offers a beautiful (budget) experience of the real, old Mexico, situated in the old part of town. Adobe walls painted in traditional pinks and yellows, tile, a courtyard surrounding the pool with lush bougainvillea, cactus, palm trees, hibiscus, and other flowering plants It is truly an oasis of beauty and peace. Gift shops (no luxury shops... More

Can not say enough about The Mar de!!! The staff is top notch! I hate calling them staff because they became my friends. Yes, this is a no frills hotel... Blah blah blah. Fresh flowers left in my room daily, fresh filtered water brought to my room daily, 24/7 security guards, daily manicured garden, best shower/water pressure, great breakfast, money... More

My fiancé and I stayed at this hotel for a long weekend trip. We were pleasantly greeted upon arrival and we were able to check into our room right away. I noticed right away that the courtyard was very well maintained and the hotel itself just received a new paint job! The pool was also In great shape! The room... More

Thank you, kzimzim, for you upbeat review. Much appreciated. In an effort to keep the property as a Historical Landmark Hotel property, some things remain the same and others are updated to meet the 21st century demands. We are always working on making improvements and this year is no exception. With added promotions, new and colorful paint and a strict... More

Best deal if you don't want All Inclusive. Downtown location. Friendly staff and very clean. Ask for rooms in the back if you want no noise. Front rooms close to main drag. No tv. Wi-Fi Food in restaurant cheap but good.

Thank you, Arezes, for your favorable review. So glad you enjoyed your stay at the hotel. Yes, it's a great value staying with us. With so many fabulous restaurants in Cabo the 'all inclusive' does limit you unfortunately. And yes, no TV's, but we do have Wi_Fi throughout the hotel. Value, customer service and cleanliness keeps our guests returning on... More

Located in the heart of Cabo, the hotel is walking distance to everything you need. We came for relaxation and this hotel delivers just that. Very quiet atmosphere despite its location, friendly staff, and clean rooms. We had a car and were able to park in a gated and locked parking structure behind the hotel for free. The hotel may...

Convenient reasonably priced, no frills, nice pool. Right in the heart of town. Have stayed there many a times in my journeys to Cabo. Not necessarily a place I would stay if I had come to Cabo with a significant other. But traveling solo or the guys trip, its always a first choice. Have stayed in other "Reasonably Priced" places...

Thank you, Carey B, for your nice review. As a loyal, return guest, we so appreciate your comments. They are helpful as prospective guests search for a place to stay in Cabo. You hit the nail on the head... not a lot of frills, but so suitable for so many. And a much better than average 'reasonably priced' property. Thanks... More

We stayed here from March 26/31st. We didn't know what to expect but the reviews were good so we decided to give it a shot, plus it was reasonably priced more money to do other things. The rooms were ok but if you are used to resort style vacationing then reconsider. The ladies at the front desk were so nice... More

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
