“Great Boutique Hotel - Perfect Location - Amazing Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We've stayed here three times now and going back next month. It's not on the beach, but just a block from the water, the Office and less than 100ft from Edith's, and just across the street from Sharky's, which has a great breakfast!

The Bahia has great decor, very romantic and warm reception and incredible restaurant at Esquina with a very large patio and indoor dining. All the food is amazing, but be sure to try the pizzas, ceviche and all of the margaritas! They've continued to upgrade the rooms but remain extremely well-priced and casual. Staff are all wonderful and very accommodating. If you book online in advance, try the lush package, extra long happy hour from morning til' night - pays off and it's never too early for a drink.

Pool area is generally quiet with nice cabana style lounges and swim up bar. They also have really good coffee, which can be harder to find. Great value overall that is hard to beat in Cabo.

Room Tip: Poolside rooms are spacious, updated and obviously great access to the pool. Don't get rooms fac...

The Bahia was a perfect Hotel for our casual vacation in Cabo. If you want something more formal this might not be your choice. But we were looking for a easy going clean hotel that had great access to the beach, and thats what we got in addition, this was probably the best value we got on our trip. I look forward to another trip ASAP.

Thank you for your review. We say the the Bahia and bar Esquina offer casual elegance so it's nice to hear that from a guest. Simple easy vacations that rejuvenate and refresh is the goal of our staff at the Bahia.
Loom forward to seeing you on your next stay

We spent 5 glorious days celebrating our 18th anniversary at the Bahia! The service was terrific - all the staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is good; just 1 block from Medano beach. The Bahia is a boutique hotel, so don't go expecting the sterility and blandness of a Fairmont Inn, but it is clean, comfortable, and amazingly quiet (being so close to the party area of Medano beach). We absolutely loved it! The only (minor) disappointment was the WiFi didn't work in our room. It worked fine by the pool, though.

We spent a good deal of time by the pool, where they will serve you snacks and drinks (the Bloody Mary's were fantastic!) We were there at the early edge of spring break, though, so we did have to don earbuds a couple of times to drown out some of the music choices later in the day. It really wasn't a bother, though.

We dined once each for lunch and dinner at Bar Esquina, where the food was fantastic, and not terribly expensive. We also enjoyed smoothies from the coffee bar, but as we were early risers, the best morning coffee before 7AM came from Ramon's place down on the corner (Jarro Coffee), where he makes each cup fresh while you wait. We grabbed a cup from him each morning for our walks down the beach.

Sharky's next door offers excellent traditional Mexican fare. Their complimentary bean soup is marvelous (although my wife couldn't eat it as she's vegetarian), as was the guacamole and fajitas. They also make a great top-shelf margarita!

Down the beach a bit is Cascadas Beach Grill, where we had breakfast on two mornings, right on the sand. The food and service there was excellent, and the view was phenomenal. They couldn't top the Bloody Mary's at the Bahia pool, though!

Another must-do restaurant while in Cabo is Sunset da Mona Lisa.. And be sure to go at sunset (you'll need a reservation). It is absolutely the most beautiful and romantic place for dinner you will find anywhere in the world!

We did try dinner two evenings at the marina, which reminded us a bit of Ocean Drive in South Beach. We were pleased with La Galeria (table side Cesar salad is a big thing in Cabo), but not so much with Alexander's next door. The marina area is very tourist-y, and Alexander's fit right in with that vibe.

It is Mexico, so expect to be approached frequently by locals when on the beach or at the marina offering trinkets, boat rides, Stand Up Paddle (we didn't get around to that but want to try next trip!), etc.. They are not overly pushy, though, so if you aren't into that sort of thing (we aren't), a simple "no" will usually get them to go away.

One last adventure - if you are a fan of The Eagles - is to take an hour drive through the desert north to Todos Santos and visit the Hotel California. While not officially sanctioned as the subject of the song, it fits (dark desert highway, nice courtyard for dancing, etc.). We brunched there, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Google their website for the history of the hotel before you go. The drive is scenic as well, giving you views of the mountains as well as the Pacific coastline.

All in all it was an amazing trip! We can't say enough about the Bahia (a beach view would be tops, but we knew going in that wasn't available), and all of the staff there. We hope to return soon!

My wife, Joanne Mitchell, and I just got back from our wedding week in Cabo... A good majority of our guests stayed at the Bahia hotel - i believe we had over 20 rooms there. Their service and staff were top notch. Adrianna Hernandez helped out with reservations and ensuring our guests were taken care off at all times. Each and everyone of them were treated cordially and the staff went out of their way to make sure we had a great time. The restaurant, Bar Esquina, was exceptional. Food and drinks were excellent. And if ever there were any problems, they took care of us. The staff also made sure that we were recognized outside of the spring break crew that had descended. A+++++++. The rooms were perfect for our guests. The pool had a great scene. Proximity to all of our wedding activities and beach. Can't say enough. We will definitely be back. Thanks again Bahia hotel for ensuring everything ran smoothly! Especially Adrianna!

This is my 5th trip to Cabo in a year and my first stay, and last, at Bahia. I have been here for 2 days and want to go home. Between the unfriendly and lazy staff, the crappy room conditions (shower either scalding or freezing no matter the time, sandpaper towels, bugs in the bathroom swimming in my soap, blinds that jam if the wind blows, dirty one cup provided and few other utensils, no microwave but a dirty electric stove with no pots, high pitched screeches from the fridge, kitchen sink full of dirt and a phone that despite the free calls to the us doesn't let anyone on the other end hear you) and the noisy Spring Breakers this getaway has no way of getting better. The staff in the bar only serves the pretty or drunk people and the staff at the pool only the men. Other than the one bellman, Dusty who smiles, no one else does. I am down here to find a place permanently to live as I loved Cabo so much but this experience has changed my mind completely.

Thank you for your review. I am upset to hear that your experience was less than perfect. I was not aware of many of the negative issues you have pointed out and neither was my staff. We would make every effort to move you or accommodate you and your requests. As far as the staff they work very hard and are generally happy people. Please don't let a bad experience change your mind about CABO as a destination. It is a wonderful place to live with great people and ideal weather.
I sincerely hope you give us and CABO another chance.

I've stayed in this hotel three times now, and am still amazed at what a great value it is for the location and amenities. They have a great location, good restaurant, helpful staff, coffee shop, great pool area.
The Hotel is one block away from the beach (Medano Beach), where a lot of the action happens beachfront. You can hang out at Mango Deck and literally stumble back only a block away, Medano beach has quite a few bars, restaurants and beach clubs, as well as lots of water activities and beach vendors. Also, Walking to downtown Cabo and the marina is not too bad, or taking a taxi is about $10 US.
The rooms are clean, with very good air conditioning, and a small kitchenette. None of the rooms i've stayed in had any cookware, although they have a stove and refrigerator.
The restaurant downstairs, Bar Esquina, is very good, and has a continually changing menu. There is also an indoor bar/restaurant area just inside. The coffee bar area serves coffee drinks and pastries all day.
The hotel staff is very nice, and very helpful. There is no in-room safe, but they have a safety deposit box room downstairs, that is available to guests.
Pool are is large and has plenty of seating, and the bartenders are always friendly and courteous. Great place to hang out. Swim up bar, too !

From the moment we stepped off the shuttle bus from the airport we were greeted with a huge smile and are luggage was immediately attended to, we were then sat down to check in to our room and taken through all we needed to know about the area and hotel.

The room we had was a Classic room on the 5th floor, very comfortable, clean and great space with amenities, and the added extra of a balcony with great view of the pool.
One of the main points of the hotel that stuck out for me was the staff!!! they are on hand to help you with any enquiry and are so attentive to your needs, extremely friendly and make an effort to remember your name. To add to this the owner Lee, every night made sure to work the room and meet and greet all guests at the hotel restaurant Esquina.

Cabo SUP: This is Stand Up Paddle which is run by the Bahia hotel and its Owner Lee, my first time and certainly not my last!! I cant wait to get back on the board!! Our instructors were the amazing Lizzy and Shea, both professional surfers and athletes so you are in safe hands with them.

Overall I would highly recommend this hotel, it has something for everyone and a real sense of home away from home.

If you have never been to Cabo San Lucas and want a real experience then take my word and choose The Bahia Hotel.
