Hotel California......where do I begin.....
My husband and I had the most amazing wedding in Todos Santos at The
Hotel California on February 21st, 2004 with 45 of our closest family
and friends. There is not enough time to even begin to elaborate on the
hotel itself, the owners John and Debbie, the food, the town and most
of all the hospitality. Not only is this a beautiful hotel, but the
feeling you have when it is time to leave is just overwelming. We came
as strangers and left as family. Anthony and I have stayed at many
hotels and resorts but none of them compare to Hotel California. They
catered to us and our guests like we were royalty.
The food...OUTSTANDING!! Dany, the chef, has an amazing menu from
selection, presentation, to taste and the prices are just robbery! Not
on their part - ours. It is amazing how little they charge for such a
wonderful meal! We honeymooned in Cabo San Lucas and not one of our
meals compared to the ones we had at Hotel California. I have to say to
anyone staying or passing by....If you like french toast -- they have
the absolute world's best french toast!!! I had it every morning for a
week!! If I wanted to try something else on the menu, I still had to
have it on the side.
The bar....so fun, great music, terrific atmosphere, awesome drinks and
the bartenders are Top Notch!! All of their fruit drinks are made from
fresh fruit! There is not a Strawberry Daquari that could ever touch
theirs. And...they are definitely not stingy with the liquor...so our
guests say. :) You must try their specialty drink..."The Cadillac"
The rooms....we had the whole hotel rented for our wedding, so I was
able to see each room. Not one is like another. They are so tastefully
decorated with complete comfort. The views from the rooms are
gorgeous!! We were in the two story suite and it has a huge terrace
decorated with tropical plants, cacti, lounge furniture and overlooks
the whole town, mountains and ocean. The first thing I saw every
morning out the french doors in front of our bed was the most amazing
sunrise imaginable!! And the sound of roosters never sounded so nice.
John Stewart and his wife, Debbie, have made this an amazing place to
come to with family and/or friends....you adapt to the Mexico ways
immediately without thought. This is truly a magical place.
The store....they have the most unique store in the hotel. We found
some wonderful gifts!! Make sure you take a few minutes to walk
through. I guarantee you will have to take a piece of Todos Santos home
Hotel ambiance.....there are no words to describe the hotel's ambiance.
It is so amazing how it changes from day to night. The entire hotel is
lit up by candlelight at night. In the week we stayed, every time we
looked around we found something new we had missed before. I cannot
imagine the time and thought that has went into the look of the hotel.
And it is constantly changing. Everything from the bright colored
walls, the antiques, the lighting, the art on the walls, the fresh
flowers, the music, the view and the over all character is just beyond
We were introduced to the town, and the hotel itself, by my Uncle John.
This is a man that has traveled the world and has so many life stories
he should have his own book. He has seen so many beautiful places and
he has chosen Todos Santos as his place of retirement. We will never be
able to repay him in any way for finding this magical place for our
For anyone considering to have a destination wedding.....I cannot
imagine you finding a more magical location. We fell in love with the
town and it's people. I believe I can speak for all of our friends and
family that were fortunate enough to visit the town and of course, The
Hotel California..."we all left a piece of us behind".
To John, Debbie, Alejandro, Barb, Dany, the whole staff at Hotel
California and especially my Uncle John ....Thank you for making our
wedding the most beautiful and amazing wedding! It was our dream
wedding and we have all of you to thank! We look at the pictures every
day with such fond memories of each and every one of you. We cannot
thank you enough.
~We will be back next year to celebrate our one year anniversary with you, our friends.
