We have stayed at El Delfin Blanco several times, most recently in March. It is the perfect location for travelers who want to experience the culture of Los Cabos, away from the tourist corridor and all-inclusive resorts. The casitas are simple, comfortable and clean. The garden-like grounds are well-cared for and quiet with rooftop views of the ocean. You will... More

Want to avoid the 100s of tourists at your average Cabo hotel? Then try El Delfin Blanco in Puerto Los Cabos just outside San Jose del Cabo. Just five casitas in a small garden setting. Simple but clean, comfortable rooms. Excellent showers with really hot water. A/C very efficient but also windows for cross ventilation. 10 minute walk to local... More

El Delfin Blanco was amazing, beautiful cabanas and rooms (I stayed in both) with views over the ocean and the whole coastline. Clean and tidy rooms surrounding a lovely garden and such reasonable prices. Osa was the best host, nothing was too much for her and she was so helpful throughout the trip as well as before we arrived. Would... More

We stayed at El Delfin Blanco March 27-29, 2015. This mini resort is a little gem in the heart of the quaint fishing village, Puerto La Puebla. We originally booked the 2 night stay there as a way to extend our Los Cabos vacation, and to wind down after a 7 night stay at a larger resort in Cabo San... More

My husband and I stayed at the Inn known as El Delfin Blanco March 5-9 for a getaway trip. Prior to our arrival the owner and proprietor, Osa, sent us detailed instructions on transferring from the airport in San Jose Del Cabo to the Inn's location in the coastal area known as La Playita. These instructions proved invaluable as the... More

If you enjoy big, fancy,all-inclusive hotels, where you're identified by your room number & always around many other people just like you, El Delfin Blanco is definitely not for you. It is Everything those hotels are not. And a whole lot more. El Delfin Blanco is a small grouping of individual Casitas (I think there's 4 of them, maybe 5)--set... More

In my opinion, the review below is inaccurate. We and our 8-month-old stayed at El Delfin Blanco and found it charming,clean, convenient, and well-maintained. Osa went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable, even giving us a play pen for our baby. And she worked very hard to make repairs to the hotel after the hurricane. Unfortunately,... More

There are so many things about this place we didn't enjoy. The kitchen is massively under-equipped (e.g., has 2 bowls for 15 guests, a terrible stove, ran out of dish soap), there is one common water jug, into which the owner pours water. One morning it was out of water. The owner wouldn't allow us to have our own large... More
