First off I will start off by saying that I have no desire to go back to Cabo ever again. There are some beautiful views, but the activities there are pretty limited. You will be harassed constantly to buy this or that. It is ridiculous. We stayed there 5 days and we had people everyday ask us if we wanted... More

I spent three nights at Mar de Cortez and it was a wonderful experience. The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of the clubs and attractions, even one block from Cabo Wabo! About 10 minute walk to the marina. 25 minute walk to Mango Deck. 10 minutes from other clubs such as Squid Roe, Mandala, etc.... It was really... More

Thank you, jaime e, for your most favorable and informative review. Others will definitely benefit from your input. Lots of detail will help future guests. And enjoying fresh water as opposed to salt and sand from the Sea of Cortez is a preference for many. Both, however, are part of the Cabo experience when you stay at Hotel Mar de... More

Thank you, francisco1, for your most generous review. Yes, location, location, location... key to finding the best place to stay for your money. And a lovely swimming pool right in the heart of town, is key. After all your Cabo activities, which the front desk staff can help you reserve, to sit by the pool with a cold beverage and... More

Clean, comfortable with a nice pool and good restaurant/bar. Very convenient location to everything in downtown Cabo. Not the Ritz, but very enjoyable and low-key. Attentive staff and free parking are a bonus.

Hotel is located for easy access to downtown Cabo, all in walking distance so no need for taxis. Rooms are basic and are clean and the hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Nice pool area. There is is a restaurant which I only had breakfast but was good. Good value for money.

If you like bar hopping, shopping, eating food, and saving money, you're in luck! This hotel is centrally located to the main area in Cabo San Lucas! Basically across the street from Cabo Wabo, minutes walk to the marina and the big mall, and surrounded by trinket shops, taco stands,and small bars with excellent drink specials.

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.
