“A Wonderful Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2010

We just returned from 5 nights at The Bungalows. We loved Eric and Estella, they made you feel like family. There was not anything that they would not do to make you feel at home. We had one of the upstairs bungalows, which was charming.
I just read the one review about someone saying there was theft, we are shocked. That was not our experience and the safe which is provided in your room is where we kept anything of value. We did not experience any problem with coconuts dropping and we read our books every afternoon there. Also, the back gate was always locked.
We cannot say enough about this charming find. And, oh my the breakfasts were so amazing!!!!!
Thank you Eric and Estella for a wonderful experience.

We spent a week with Eric "El Hefe" and his black n' whites....
Eric and his Mother, Sister....the whole Family....were helpful in giving direction as well as providing a very nice accommodation in relative proximity
to the hustle and bustle of downtown Cabo.
After driving all over the corridor, we returned to the calm of this hotel, and relaxed blissfully by the private pool under the bougainvillea.

We selected this hotel based on rave reviews by previous guests. We did find the hosts very amicable however unfortunately room theft was a recurring issue. My iphone was stolen as were some earrings and likely my daypack (I"m only 95% certain of this one) We moved rooms to be less accessible via the back gate but nevertheless another pair of earrings went missing. Eric told me there had never been theft in 14 years--clearly unbelievable whether in Mexico or Canada. The small safe in each room is not attached so could easily be removed. Unfortunately as well, falling coconuts around the pool were a continuing hazard around the pool (3 fell during our one week stay) I own tourist accommodation and feel bady to diss this hotel and the owners but feel I must.

It's the combination of the clean premises, friendly & very accomodating staff, delicious breakfasts, quaint & charming accomodation that make this the great place it is! You truly feel at home here - can you say that for the all inclusives & 5 star accomodations?
We walked every where from The Bunglaows, to and from shopping, dining and the marina. When exploring up the hill from The Bungalows, we noticed a deli/coffee shop and spa, we would have liked to check out.
It's unfortunate the pool doesn't get much sun and my only regret is not seeing Erik & getting a good bye hug before we left.

We stayed at The Bungalows for about a week over new year and whilst i had high hopes given the good reviews I was really impressed with the value for money it offered. The rooms are really charming little apartments and delightfully furnished. The family who run it are absolutely great, nothing was too much trouble but everything was approached in a very laid back and mellow manner. Fabulous breakfasts every morning and coffee all day. Nice pool though we didn't use it much. It's a 15 minute walk to the beach but I'm glad i was a bit away from the madness of Cabo! If you like big shiny resorts it's probably not your thing but if you like a more boutique and friendly place I would recommend the Bungalows and I would happily go back and stay again.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Bungalows for 3 nights at the end of December and we really enjoyed our stay.

Our room was excellent and the grounds are beautiful. The family that owns the hotel was fantastic: friendly, interesting, and always willing to share a travelling story and information on Los Cabos area.

For breakfast we enjoyed gourmet versions of classic meals such as french toast stuffed with cream cheese, fried bananas, and walnuts (Mmm!). The meal was always accompanied by hot, fresh cafe, a fresh fruit smoothie, and fresh fruit.

On our first full day in San Lucas, it poured all day. Fortunately, the lobby hosts a DVD library and each room is equipped with a TV and DVD player. We spent the rainy day in our cozy room and watched movies until the weather passed.

The location of the hotel is nice. Just far enough away from the main drag (Cardenas) to feel as though we were away from the real touristy zones, but walking distance to the beach, marina and restaurants. We had our car, which was nice, because it would have sucked to walk or take taxis everywhere.
