When my boyfriend & I planned our trip to Cabo this year, we decided to veer away from the resort scene. We wanted to feel the local beat, & experience some real mexican hospitality. We reserved a room for a week at Norman Diego's at an unbelievably low rate. I was a bit skeptical about the hotel because the rate was so cheap & honestly I did not expect such a positive experience. However, we were pleasantly surprised upon arrival at Norman Diego's! From the moment we arrived Emilio, the inn keeper made us right at home. As soon as we walked thru the gate, we were surrounded by a beautiful lush garden, tranquil sounds trickling from the fountain, artistic murals, and a feeling of being whisked away to a personal sanctuary. The accommodations are immaculate & romantic with spanish style paintings, terra cotta tiled floors, lovely carved furniture & a comfy bed. Breakfast under the palapa is so refreshing, with fresh fruits, juices & sweet breads; there is a full menu, but once you've finished all the fruit and bread, there is no need for more! We planned to enjoy the local beaches & water activities during our stay; Emilio was eager to assist us & provided us more information about the local activities than we could ever ask for! He set up our snorkeling trip to Pelicanos & Lovers Beach; a guided tour of The Arch, as well as information about Chilleno Bay. He offered so much info concerning water sports & local activities that we had no need to deal with the peddlers around the marina & beach areas. The hotel itself is off the beaten track in a quiet residential area. It takes about 7 minutes to walk into the heart of town & the marina. Several great restaurants & taco stands are in the immediate area; a great tortilleria is across the street with fresh warm tortillas every day! There is a grocery store within a 3 minute walk & a bus station if needed about 5 minutes away. Everything we could possible want to do while in Cabo was within walking distance, or a quick bus ride away. Norman Diego's turned out to be a personal heaven for us & after we had been at the hotel for a few days, we decided to book 4 additional nights. Emilio was more than happy to accommodate us for the extra nights, and gave us yet another great rate. Both of us work in the airline industry & we have had the opportunity to travel and stay in many hotels & resorts. Norman Diego's is by far a leading example in hospitality, location & accommodations. We have we recommended the hotel to family, friends & co-workers; & we plan to stay at Norman Diego's on each visit to Cabo. If you are looking for a little piece of heaven in Cabo, Norman Diego's is the place to be!
