Maybe, just maybe the Eagles never got there. Regardless, it's a fun place to visit if only so you can regale stay-at-homes back in Tulsa that YOU traveled deep into the heart of darkness I mean Mexico to see (and stay at?) the REAL HOTEL CALIFORNIA. Yes Yes, it's a real hotel, maybe just not that other one mentioned in...

We have dined here a few times over the years and found it to be OK. We brought friends there yesterday and it was SO bad! We had to clear our own table and when we were finally approached and asked what we would like the first thing we asked for was a towel to clean out table. Somehow he...

I think a lot of people thought that we were going to the hotel on the cover of the Eagles album of the same name, which is actually in Beverly Hills California. It was a nice stop in a nice little town. They had a nice little gift shop. We only had a half hour and I wish we could...

Fun stop in a great up and coming towns in Mexico, loved the old town charm. The chocolate shop is great, best kept secret. Two different shop owners were like slot of the stuff isn't even made in Mexico, but rather come in from China under NAFTA. Go figure.

We have frequented the restaurant since 2002 and will continue to do so since it is a nice drive and somewhat of a tradition. The outdoor patio has been expanded nicely but the bathrooms need a little TLC still. No running water in the men's bathroom which left my husband with soapy hands and no way to rinse it off....

I did not stay the night as a guest, but my friends and I toured the grounds and made purchases at the gift shop. We'll definitely be returning someday, and staying the night. Absolutely gorgeous and worth the drive from Cabo.

So there isn't much to see in downtown Todos - except this place - and plenty of people visit this hotel. We ate here and had a few drinks. Fun side-trip from Cabo, but the beach is the real attraction. We walked to the beach from here (about 25 minutes) and enjoyed the rest of our day away from the...

We stayed for 3 nights- Hotel California was a great for being centrally located in Todos Santos, it was clean, the bed was comfortable and the staff friendly. There is fun, bright and interesting art around the hotel, the gardens atop the hotel are breezy and comfortable AND you can pretend that you are the focus of the paparazzi every...

We ended up here because it was christmas day and many places were full or closed and we were pleasantly surprised and enjoyed a nice meal. Our dinners were well done and the service was good. We didn't get to sit out back which looked very nice.

We were on a cruise and went to the town of Todos Santos with relatives. It's an hour or so away from Cabo. We stopped for Margaritas and appetizers at the hotel. Both were excellent. There was a pottery making for the Hotel.
