The Mar has done some great renovations since our last visit. The staff are all friendly and made us feel welcome. The location is fabulous and is in walking distance to anything you need or want to do. Baja Peppers has great food and service. Can't wait until our next visit. Maurice&Colleen Winter

We travelled to Cabo San Lucas with 15 friends and stayed at Mar De Cortez. This was a sentimental trip because many of us had visited here various times since 1979. We had a great holiday and thoroughly enjoyed Mar de Cortez once again. The hotel has had some renovations and the interior courtyard is painted in wonderful Mexican colours.... More

I recently visited Cabo San Lucas and stayed at Mar De Cortez. I have nothing but good things to say about my time there. It was clean, the staff always friendly and ready to help if needed, location was very centrally located and made everything very easily walkable. The restaurant they have there is also great - especially dinners!

Thank you Therese D for your complimentary review. It's always great to hear from first time guests who enjoy the many benefits and the comfort of the Mar de Cortez. Yes, location does have its merits. So convenient for shopping, restaurants, the marina, swimming, night clubs, etc. We've often been described as 'the best kept secrect in Cabo'. Thanks again,...

This is a very friendly place to stay that will not break the bank this is a good option. It is clean but not at all fancy. The staff is helpful. The bed comfort is not the best but not horrible.

I have stayed here many of time. Price is fantastic. Very nice clean hotel with swimming pool, restaurant, and bar. Rooms all have Refrigerated air. Very good staff. Best part is that it is walking distance to all the action and the marina. Would recommend this place to anyone.

The customer service, location, rates, and the food were phenomenal. Even our friends staying at their over-priced 5-star timeshare spent the remainder of their vacation hanging out with us at the Hotel Mar de Cortez. Perfect little oasis in the middle of everything.
