My wife & I spent part of our honeymoon at the Casa Bentley, and we can't say enough about it. The fountain suite is an amazing room, with stonework and an open floor plan that makes you feel like you're the King and Queen of Todos Santos.
The pool is just perfect for either splashing around to beat the heat or gettting a few (short) laps in before hitting the town. And the town is virtually at their doorstep. Great dining is just a few blocks away along with groceries, gifts, books, real estate, travel and drug stores.
Bob and Beatrice are wonderful, with Bob willingly sharing his incredible knowledge of the area (as well as his addiction to Google Earth) and Beatrice going out of her way to make sure you are enjoying every part of your stay.
The outdoor kitchen is a great place to prepare and share meals with friends, and the hule tree has to be experienced to be believed. The dogs make you feel welcome and protected, though small children may take their exhuberance the wrong way.
This is definitely the best value around, though I'm sure the rates will be going up soon.
Do stay here if you :
Want insider knowledge (or gossip) of the area
Want a unique place that is unlike anything anywhere
Want a place in town to be close to the arty expats scene and the warm locals scene.
Want a quiet place to relax completely
Want to feel like your staying at a house. Because you are!
Want to stay with other couples or as a family. Plenty of room and privacy yet great common areas.
Don't stay here if you:
Want A/C - I hate the heat but found the bountiful fans made it very pleasant inside.
Want to be steps away from the beach.
Want the feelling of a Cabo resort (but then I guess you wouldn't be looking in Todos Santos!)
Looking for a place that is just like the US. While it is luxurious, it is still in Mexico and has just enough quirks to remind you you're not at home. Some lights are burnt out, some switches hard to find, and there is plenty of dust due to the dirt roads.
If you want plenty of sunlight and one or two steps to the pool, stay in the Mango or Hule Suites. If you like privacy and more luxury, stay in the Fountain or Dolphin Suites.
Just remember to ask Bob about the elephant and the monkey!
