So this is your basic hotel. Not a resort but very close to all the bars& restaurants.I have stayed a few times& am always pleased. There is a great restaurant located in hotel as well as a coffee shop out front. This is in the downtown so you would think it's noisy but when you walk in you can't believe... More

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at Mar de Cortez. It's clean and quiet. Pool is freezing cold. And there's not much sun in the courtyard . The bar and restaurant aren't up and running yet. They open a make shift bar by the pool at 2pm. You have to ask for the breakfast coupons or they wont... More

An aging hotel that needs some TLC - but it is in the perfect location if you want to see and explore Cabo San Lucas. It is located in the heart of the city, very near the harbor, restaurants and shopping. It is in a more quiet section, so the real loud noise is a bit further away. It also... More

A clean, comfortable room in the heart of downtown. More of a motel than a hotel with some definite wear in the rooms, but if you are here to be in the middle of everything without paying beachfront prices, this is your place. Safe, quiet and pleasantly landscaped around the pool with excellent service. Nearby finds are breakfast at La... More

One of Cabo's first hotels, Mar de Cortez is swimming against the current tide: it's in town, and quite close to restaurants and the marina, unlike the timeshares and resorts that have popped up in the last 20 years that are spread around a radius of 20 miles. That's both good and bad. It's an attractive but compact hotel, with... More

We stayed here for a few days before moving to one of the timeshare resorts. This was a great place to get the vacay started and into full relax mode. Staff is very friendly and VERY accomodating. We moved rooms to be on the lower floor with a little patio. The garden and pool area are immaculate and well kept.... More

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...

Thank you, HaliNobel, for your upbeat review. We are so glad you found us, too. We are pleased that our bar is open once again, and the restaurant is soon to be open after the management change for that concession. Our staff is always eager to welcome new guests and our loyal return guests add a happy ambiance to the... More

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..

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....
