Great little hotel right in the downtown of Cabo. Walking distance to everything you need for food fishing etc. Marina is very close. Would definitely stay here again. Rooms are old but very clean and the prices are very affordable.

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2016

My friends and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at Mar de Cortez last week! We booked 3 Standard Pool View rooms and were all next to each other in 115, 116, 117, and one King Suite which was just around the corner in 501. Check in was easy and received our towel cards for the pool. We had requested mini... More

Look, if you are on a budget and want a good location in the city this is the hotel for you (and Me). This is one of the older hotels in Los Cabos, I think I stayed at this place in 1981? Anyhow, it's small hotel surrounded by homes, roads and shops, just a short walk to the harbor and... More

Great Mexican style hotel with awesome A/C. Very good value for 3 of us ($69nt) with 4 beds. Close to the Marina for fishing, food, and all the nightlife you need in Cabo. Will definitely recommend this hotel, and quite likely stay here again. Only thing was that the toilet is not very private in our room.

For going to Cabo Wabo or Giggling Marlin, you can't get much closer. Easy walking distance. Great little taco place just to the left as you go out of the entrance and down a block. Hooliganz is another great place that is very close. Older classic resort is deceiving from the outside. A well kept but small entrance opens up... More

Our stay at Mar de Cortez was great!! The people are wonderful, the customer service is wonderful and it is right in the middle of all the action.

The Mar De Cortez has been our choice of places to stay for over 15 years. We have been there over 10 times. The reason why we continue to come back is because of its price, location, and its cleanliness. If your wanting Tv, phone? You won't find that. Do have free wifi. It's a great place to stay if...

Great budget hotel in the heart of things. Short walk to the marina. Fantastic location. The only slight negative - poor wifi. Nice clean pool. Restaurant with excellent breakfasts and happy hours (2 daily). Rooms are spacious and clean. A/C and plenty of hot water. I loved the old wood wardrobe in my room. There's a nice terrace to sit...

We spent one night here after spending a week at Pueblo Bonito. (Took advantage of lower plane fare). Nice little place right in the center of old town shopping. One of the first three original hotels from the little fishing village days. Owners and front desk people were very friendly and accommodating. Room was pretty drab, but I must say... More
