Stayed here end of January thru Feb 6. Loved the location-easy to get to the marina, the beach, restaurants. My room was clean and well-appointed. Probably quieter in the back than my room across from the check-in desk. But no complaints. Food at the restaurant El Cortez was quite good and reasonably priced. The pool was cold but still fun...

As other have said this is a no frills hotel in the middle of Cabos San Lucas. It is very convenient for walking to the marina, restaurants or staggering home from the clubs. The pool seemed to be well maintained and their is a small restaurant and bar. There are no TVs or telephones in the rooms but why do... More

Very inexpensive hotel right down town within walking distance to everything. Hotel is clean but a little worn. Staff is very friendly. Restaurant and bar is good and very reasonably priced with good service. Front desk staff is very helpful. We are divers so go to bed early and AC did a good job of covering up sound of late...

The hotel is clean and affordable. Their inclusive American breakfast is fine. It has a bar, pool and restaurant on the premises. They even have safe deposit boxes big enough to hold my lap top. The close proximity to Cabo Wabo means your hearing music into the early a.m. Bring ear plugs. Rooms are comfortable but not stylish. No t.v.... More

It is hard to believe such a quiet spot can be found right in the center of Cabo. The staff were super friendly, and the grounds were immaculate. Hanging out by the pool was very quiet and serene. The only drawbacks were slow wifi, freezing cold swimming pool, and very dark room (which was a tad on the rustic side).... More

Thank you, Phil L, for your upbeat review after your recent stay at Hotel Mar de Cortez in Cabo. Yes, some call it 'the best kept secret in Cabo'. It is an Historical Landmark property so some of the 'old' is definitely part of it's character. Unfortunately we do not heat the swimming pool which therefore makes the water a... More

Can be a bit of a party spot. But the pool is clean and nice. Plenty of spots to sit. Breakfast was included for us, and was simple but did the trick. $1 US taco stands near by are delicious! Also a 10-15 minute walk from the marina. And in an area of good restaurants and bars. We felt safe.... More
