We stumbled upon the Hotel Mar De Cortez after selling our motorhome during our stay in Cabo and feel like we've won the lottery. The rooms are clean, location is central, pool area is lovely and the staff are super friendly. We have met numerous people who return every year to this boutique hotel in the heart of Cabo and...

We traveled to Cabo over the Thanksgiving holidays. There are some signs of damage in Cabo San Lucas but not bad. The locals are always so welcoming to the tourist. The restaurants were up and running. It is a great place to spend time in.

Thank you katyproud for your great update. It's important that others know our guests' thoughts about how far Cabo has come in their recovery efforts after Hurricane Odiel. Fortunately, Hotel Mar de Cortez suffered minimal damage, having only lost a few palm trees, one broken window, an awning came down and a gate was broken. That's it. Pretty remarkable. Yes,... More

We have stayed here 6 different times. Enjoyed each visit. We arrived several weeks after the hurricane. All was in great shape except for restaurant and bar which were closed.. Always eclectic group of guests. The friendliest bunch you will meet. This Hotel just seems to be attractive to very friendly people. Rooms are very basic (no TV, no phone),... More

Thank you, calmseas1, for your fisherman's point of view. Much appreciated! Yup... we've been a favorite budget property for the fishermen since day one. Our huge, recently renovated, walk in freezer for their catch each day is one of the many reasons. Plus the free Wi-Fi, swimming pool and outside bar and friendly faces are a draw for the folks....

The staff at Hotel De Cortez was of great help to me on the last trip. I spent 2 "bonus days" at the Cortez.

This is a great place for the value traveler. Walk to everything. Lots of food and activities very close. Super friendly people at the desk and around the hotel. Baja Peppers is good, but I miss Spencers.

Thank you Jay D for your review. We are so glad you returned and appreciate you positive words. Value and location are so important and obviously you appreciate both.

I have been staying here since 2010; you cannot beat the price, location (10 minute walk to the marina), or staff. Everything here is perfect. They recently did updates to the hotel which is cool because it shows they are invested in the hotels success as well as keeping the patrons happy and impressed. Absolutely no complaints, never had a... More
