“3 amigos on quads”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

My friends and I drove our quads from La Paz to Todos Santos across the dessert, along the beach. Ivonne made an excellent breakfast for us, service was great, location is awesome!
I highly recommend Flora del Mar! We'll definitely stay here next time!

We spent our second week in Mexico staying at Flora Del Mar. We were travelling with our 11 month old son in september (hot!) and Flora Del Mar was what we needed! The whole house felt like a piece of art, it was gorgeous! It also stayed cool in the heat of the day. The grounds are well maintained and there are lots of spots to lie in a hammock or read a book. We spent many happy hours in the pool with our baby and we all loved it! It's just 2 minutes walk from a beautiful beach which is lovely for evening walks (but a bit dangerous for swimming). We made the right decision coming to stay at Flora Del Mar and I only wish that we had gone straight there from the airport!

Room Tip: We had a room with air con which was necessary in september in Mexico even though we didn't need...

We loved this place! We had an upstairs room which was beautifully appointed in a welcoming hacienda style. It was very clean with a very comfortable bed and very nice bathroom. The view from our room and adjacent rooftop sitting area was fantastic! We loved listening to the breaking waves throughout the night. It is just a short stroll past the pool and tennis court to the beach, which is amazing. We took long walks each day and encountered only a few people! I swam in front in the beautiful blue water but would advise caution to anyone who is not used to a big shore break. The warm breezes flowing through our room coupled with the beautiful sounds of the ocean have left us wanting to return soon.

I was enchanted when I first saw Flora del Mar. It is beautiful, spacious, crazy close to the beach...The waves were amazing. Getting up early to walk the dogs at the beach became a much loved routine.
Each room is beautifully and uniquely decorated. Sitting by the pool, viewing the ocean, seeing the very well kept tennis court, while having a cool one and patting the pooch...Well, I was in heaven.

The least one expects upon arriving to a place is a nice welcome (after hours of driving), and the truth was that after roaming around the property for more than fifteen minutes, the guy who, apparently, run the place did not know about us at all. Not a big deal so far, but a bit dissapointing. The location, absolutely magnificent, looking at the Pacific Ocean, great swimming pool...The house in which we were about to stay, looked clean and neat, besides the fact that in the kitchen there was a rubbish bin open and loaded .....Until unwanted visitors showed up night time: roaches, spiders and even a mouse. I am not extremely scrupulous, but that was a little too much.
I am positive, if the owner had been in place, none of this would have ever happened, but unfortunately we had this experience.
I just hope, for the betterment of the place and future travelers,that the place returns to the good reviews status it was before our arrival.

Well.....Flora del Mar is an interesting place. First off, the first impression is bittersweet. After wandering down dirt roads you find this expansive property with a few houses and a pool...unfortunately, when we arrived, it resembled some sort of abandoned property. We walked around knocking on doors and looking for someone but no one! Eventually we found someone after 15 minutes of wandering....so not the greatest welcome

Now the "supposed" caretaker is a nice enough guy, but he had no idea we were arriving. He had no clue what we agreed to pay for the place and he demanded to be paid in advance which is kind of weird. Needless to say, I doubt the room was really ready to be inhabited since no one knew we were coming apparently. Did I mention there are no keys to the place? Not many people around, but still......

We were put into the main house on the property, which in the day looked pretty nice. Don't get me wrong, the property is beautiful! Unfortunately, at night is when the true disarray of the place is prevalent. We came home after dark to our main house and boy what we found! First off, probably 5 or 6 huge roaches lounging in the bathroom. Next, a spider the size of my hand hanging out over our bed, followed by his "buddy" on top of the door. Not to mention two ticks we found on the bedspread! Yuck!

It's hard to believe, but the next night was worse. More roaches, more spiders, one more tick, and even a mouse for good measure.

Overall, the place is super beautiful but uninhabitable! The other reviews mentioned someone named "Marilyn" and her great breakfasts.....yaaaaa I don't know her or her breakfasts. Only the mouse, spiders, roaches, and ticks....

We have taken care of the problem! I'm sorry for any inconvenience.
This is the first summer that I have opened the doors at Flora del Mar, at greatly reduced rates. It's possible the guest's arrival coincided with the increase in summer heat and corresponding influx of insects. Prior to this review, I had only received appreciation with no problems. Had this guest mentioned his concerns to the on site manager, David, David would have rectified the situation, immediately and also offered him a different suite.
Since then, we have had the entire place fumigated. But, having said that, it is Mexico, at the beach in the summer, and there are occasional bugs.
Please note, summer months are casual and no formal breakfast is served. However, all guests have access to a kitchen.

My husband & I along with our close friends stayed a week at Flora Del Mar. We had a fabulous time!!! Marilyn is the best hostess ever!! We felt so comfortable & felt completely at home.We rented our own suites with kitchenettes. They were clean & comfortable & beautifully decorated. We could lay in bed falling asleep to the crash of the waves & wake up to see the ocean.We enjoyed running with her cute rescue dogs along the ocean. We love tennis & she has the only court in the area & it is great!! Her breakfasts were delicious & she is such an amazing woman!! We felt like we made a new friend with Marilyn. We met fun & interesting people. We loved the location because we could walk for 15 minutes to town or hop in our rental jeep & drive for 5. It was very convenient. Todos Santos is a cool artsy safe place with fabulous restaurants. You would be hard pressed to find a bad meal. Marilyn is a wealth of knowledge & was willing to help us with any arrangements we needed. She organized yoga & massages. What a fun & relaxing place to stay!! Comfy beds & great showers, nice grounds & right on the ocean. We will return!! Thanks Marilyn for a fabulous holiday!!!
