Overall, I enjoyed my time at Playa Del Sol. It didn't have that touristy feel like a resort in cabo might have. The employees were all VERY friendly and we saw them everyday. The resort is small, so you get to know your fellow vacationers. The meals were all served upstairs on the patio. I had read the previous reviews... More

Agreed with most of the reviews - except the one for the crew of the Kahlua. They did an exceptional job! Enjoyed the meals, but would have liked more Mexican food. I like swimming laps and this pool was better then most.

If you are looking for a clean, quiet, rustic hotel, then this is for you. Prices are good and amenities are basic. No safe in the room, but it's a safe town. We thought the food was great and watch out for those margaritas!!! Pool area was always clean and not too busy. Small town charm. Loved it. Wifi is... More

We have stayed at Playa del Sol in the past and generally speaking, it is a decent place to visit from the fishing perspective. The hotel rooms are very basic, 2 singles and a double. They were clean and the air conditioner worked great. The food is a little marginal, but you can always walk down to Palmas de Cortez... More

Six of us stayed here for six nights on a Baja fishing trip. Location was great, Los Barriles, about 50 miles north of Los Cabos airport. Resort was all that we expected, been around for awhile but in good shape and clean. Fishing was OK not the best time of year. I am not sure how they manage to put... More

My girlfriend and I stumbled onto this hotel late at night looking for a place to stay. Not until morning we realized how nice it was. For the price it has a great location, good swimming pool, easy access to the beach, easy walk to town. All in all a very good value

Fresh ceviche is the highlight of Playa Del Sol. Each day between 4 and 7 PM.the bar tender will make up a batch of ceviche (if fish is brought in from the day of fishing), and the fishers and American locals (Los Barriles is a town of 9,000, 6,000 are American!) talk about the day. This hotel is one of... More

I purchased an all inclusive fishing/lodging package that included meals. I was under the impression that the food was served from the menu that is shown on the hotel web sight which also shows information for their sister hotels that they own in Los Barriles. Come to find out, this menu is for their parent hotel the Palma de Cortez... More

We loved Playa Del Sol! Even without TV or phone we sat out on the patio and watched the wild life in the sea of cortez.Service was very good along with the meals.The hotel is small so you get to know everyone easily.Thank you Thomas and Brenda for making our stay so memorable! We hope to return every year.
