“Great Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

What can I say but wow! If you like peace and quiet on your vacation with a great view and a wonderful host, then this is the place for you.
It's a bit hard to find but well worth it. The rooms were very nice, large, clean, and the kitchen was well stocked.
Brian went above and beyond your usual hotel Manager. He had great information on local restaurants and things to do.
The free breakfast was very good, but due to the language barrier there were some small issues with ordering and getting what we wanted.

Would definately recommended this place to people that are looking for a quiet getaway. It was a great little home away from home with great staff and one of the best views of Cabo.

Room Tip: They all are great from what we saw

We stayed at Castillo Blarney in early February for a few nights prior to a week at a timeshare resort. All the other reviews tell the story - awesome laid back place with top notch service - Brian and all the staff are amazing. Rooms are clean, comfortable and stocked with all the amenities you'll need. Breakfasts were great, other guests were nice. This Inn is on my list for return trips to Cabo.

My wife and I spent two days at the Blarney Inn before, and one day after, our week at Playa Grande. What a great place to stay!

Brian and the staff made us feel like family, looking after all our needs from breakfast, transportation, access to a computer for printing boarding passes, offering to let us make a phone call home and even telling us not to worry about check-out time, letting us stay till late afternoon before our check-in time at Playa Grande..

Its location is an easy 10 minute downhill walk to the marina, the surrounding hills are a great challenge for my morning run and the view from our balcony was outstanding. I loved its feel of a small, private club - it was a nice change from a big resort with people everywhere. The pool, hot tub and sitting areas were great and made for a great stay.

Thanks to Brian and the staff! We will be back!

I almost feel bad contributing to good reviews here because this place feels like a hidden gem. Our trip was across Baja California and back by car and this is the best place that we have stayed at during the two week vacation.

Superb view, great value of accommodations, full kitchen, delicious breakfast, outstanding hospitality. This castle on the top of the hill is designed in a very interesting way that creates this homey feeling of comfort and neighborly surroundings. Staff is very helpful with finding places to go and things to do. I was able to practice my Spanish, get a great deal on fishing, have a fun celebration of New Year and 'Every Day in Cabo', which in itself is a holiday.

I have also stayed in the acclaimed 'best BnB hotel in whole Baja California' (one in La Paz) as well as few other BnBs on our trip, but this place beats them all by a mile. Will come back again. Thank you Alejandro (hope I didn't misspell the name) and staff for making our stay a great experience!

Adios

We stayed at the Blarney Castle Inn a few nights in early February 2012. We had just spent a week at a big time share hotel on Medano Beach near downtown Cabo, so we were looking for a quiet few days before flying home to the frozen north. Brian met us at the front steps and introduced us to his funky inn. The rooms are not fancy, but have considerable charm. Brian has varied books in each room, plus the kitchen area is large and decently stocked. The pool area is sunny in the morning but not in the afternoon, but you can always just rock in the swing and enjoy the view. Since this is a "castle", there are many nooks and crannies to explore all over the place. The onsite restaurant "Brennan's" was not open while we stayed, but Brian made sure our made-to-order breakfast was served every morning. Once breakfast is ordered, read a book on your deck or just chill out, because the food takes a while to arrive. Good thing there is a microwave in our room, because the food is not always hot. They provide coffee makers, coffee and filters, which is better than the expensive time share hotels on the beach. Overall, it was a quiet, pleasant few days with great views of Cabo San Lucas, the marina and the ocean in the day and night. Lots of fun.

Room Tip: Room 4 has a large deck.

Great hotel! A little off the beaten path which for me is the ONLY reason I gave it a 4 and not 5 star review. It is literally the most accomadating hotel I have ever stayed at. Brian, the manager is extremely attentive to the needs/ requests of the guests. He and his staff will get you anything you need, to include the ocassional lift into town. Also, I checked out at 5 am and he was at the room to see me off. He even carried my luggage to my transport. One day me and my group brought back fish from our fishing trip. He had an employee come to the hotel and cook it with rice, beans and more fixings I can't even remember right now. It was fantastic. Breakfast was included with the price of the room and was fantastic. If you want a quiet vaca in cabo with great views, this is the place to go. I can't imagine a better "bang for your buck"

We stayed for a week in January; the room was spacious, clean and airy. The view is great; Brian and his staff are wonderful. Upon arrival, Brian brought us a couple of beers and gave us a brief orientation of the hotel, how to get into town, and how best to negotiate with cabs back at night. A full breakfast was provided every morning, and there are water dispensers in the rooms. Because Castillo Blarney is off the beaten path you'll never be harassed by anyone to purchase anything, and you will genuinely feel relaxed and rested. If we ever return to Cabo it will be contingent upon staying at Castillo Blarney. Thank you for everything Brian.
