We couldn't believe how delicious the food here was! We were just driving through on our way to Los Cabos. We had lunch and I had the best fish fillet of my whole weeklong trip to Baja! I actually ordered the fish burger without the bread (carb free) and they were able to substitute fries for steamed broccoli with butter.... More

Second brief visit to Hotel California was as pleasant as first! Great location within walking distance from most tourist attractions in Todos Santos. This extremely small hotel has a great dining patio with typical Mexican food. Just off the patio you may remain in the bar area and enjoy the wonderful drinks both Mexican or American. Even though there is... More

Not a bad drive from Cabo San Lucas. Everything I imagined. The restaurant served the best chicken enchiladas with a green tomatillo salsa that I have had in quite some time. It was definitely worth the drive.

Stayed at Hotel California July 1-3. Love this place. Comfortable bed and balcony where I played cribbage. Beautiful artwork and landscaping. Clean and fun. Great food and Tequila centrally located in town. Awesome value as well. Love it!

Lots of great architectural details, and at night it has a kind of mysterious atmosphere, with candles lighting the way. The room was adequate in size. Very comfy bed. Not a lot of storage space. No TV, which was fine with me. The restaurant is first-rate. Everything I tried was excellent. And it's right in the middle of central TS,... More

Headed to Todos Santos on a day trip from Cabo. Drive there was lovely and scenic along the coast. Enjoyed walking around town and checking the craft/book/jewelry shops. Although we didn't stay overnight at the hotel, they did have a lovely restaurant. Margaritas and food were great and atmosphere even better. Enjoyed the day & especially our stop at Hotel... More

We got to Todos Santos about 9:15-9:30 on Tuesday 6.21.16 and had a great breakfast here. Our party was 9 people & all of us said it was the best we had in our week in the Baja. This is a laid back fairly quiet community. This is not Cabo. So if that's what your looking for this is not... More

About an hour drive from the Hilton, was worth to visit , has a nice gift shop, although overpriced, the setting was lovely with a courtyard setting, Also has a bar. I enjoyed the artsy feeling of it. Next to cathedral , also across the street other art galleries , visited on a Sunday so not all galleries were open.

We didn't stay at this hotel. We just drove up from Cabo to see it and to have lunch. The food was excellent, as was the service. Afterwards, we walked around the town for gifts and some local art. It's definitely worth taking a few hours out of your Cabo vacation to visit!
