Based on the price, location, and nice room with charm, I'm giving this 4 stars. There is no ocean view direclty from the B&B - but walk 2 or 3 minutes and you are on the beach. Walk the beach away from the vacation homes and you have the long undeveloped white sand beach to yourself. This is a great... More

i was staying at palmilla before i decided i needed a more rustic authentic baja experience. this place was green and eco chic before there was such a thing. if you require Aveda toiletries and a butler, this is not the place for you, but if you want to see how the locals do it, you can't beat la fonda...

My daughter and I just spent 10 days in Los Cabos.....for half that time I had the pleasure of staying at Buzzard's bar and grill (la fonda del mar B&B) on the fringe of the Mexican baja outback. The road ends at Buzzard's but it's only 30 minutes from the San Jose airport and 10 minutes from the mega store.... More

We were supposed to stay here for one night but after a hotel gave our reservation away in Todos Santos we decided to take our chances and show up early. Boy are we glad. This is the cutest boutique hotel and run by a lovely couple. The accomadation are 4 little bungalows practically on the beach. The rooms were comfortable... More

This is the prefect vacation spot if you like being included in the local ambience. It's far from the "tourist" scene but offers great food at reasonable prices under an open air palapa and walking on the beach is a stones throw away. The rooms are clean and comfortable but it is unlikely you will spend much time in them.... More

This is one of my favorite places on Earth. My family has been staying here for the last eight years. We adore the owners, Denny, Judy and their Jack Russell terrier, Riley, who always makes us laugh. The place exudes a friendly warmth and ambiance so rare and heartwarming these days. The bar called "Buzzards", is usually filled with East... More

A great set-up: Spacious room (we had the one with the shower),real good food in the restaurant / bar, made by the local Mexican cooks. Just sitting there with the waves in the background - we fell in... More

Pro: Buzzards (aka La Fonda del Mar) is far away from the chaos of the two Cabos Con: You'll want to rent a car so that you don't feel stranded Pro: Buzzards is solar powered--good for the environment Con: There are rules about when you can and cannot flush the toilet Pro: Rustic and down-to-earth Con: The fan over the...

We started our ten day stay in the Cabo area at LaFonda and I have to admit I was a bit hesitant when my husband pulled out a business card that he picked up somewhere in his travels and insisted on staying here. But the rooms were very clean and well decorated. Truely a bargain when compared to room rates... More
