“Low-key and loaded with charm”
Reviewed February 25, 2005

My husband and I lead stressful lives....but the stress melts away the moment we pull up to La Fonda del Mar...the restaurant/bar under the palapa, with a view of the sea is an oasis of great food prepared by Lupe and great conversations peppered by a constantly changing cast of international characters....we are always made to feel at home, invited to join other guests and the ex-pats who throng to the palapa for special "diner nites" and the freshest seafoods and salads....

The 4 bungalows are clean, comfy and well-priced...the water and electricity are limited, as water is trucked in and solar power is the set-up...so don't expect to use a blowdryer or watch t.v. You won't be bored, as the beach is lovely, there is no one trying to sell trinkets and town is just a short drive....

Judi and Denny, the hosts, welcome us like family....it won't be long until you'll feel like family, too.

We loved staying at the La Fonda del Mar Bed and Breakfast (aka Buzzards) just 4 miles east of San Jose del Cabo on the East Cape. The rooms were very comfortable, clean and the owners were very accommodating. Being right on the beach among the beautiful plantings and surrounded by bright colors and chirping tropical birds was such a refreshing change from the wild hub bub of Cabo. We loved rolling out of bed and onto the beach to whale watch and then sit under the palapa to sip margueritas and dine in quiet comfort. What a wonderful secret spot. We and our family and friends will always stay at La Fonda. A true jewel of the Sea of Cortez.

My wife of 22 years and I live in San Jose del Cabo. We quite often spend the night at La Fonda del Mar B&B, know to locals as "Buzzard's". Even though we live only six miles away in a very charming casita, the ambiance, food and just trememdous romantic vibes lure us anyway. Usually on the full moon. HOWL!!!!!

Limited number of rooms make this a private getaway. The rooms are large, clean, unique, private, quiet. Wonderful casual restaurant on premises (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and most excellent breakfast is included in room price. A few miles from San Jose Del Cabo, paved road, on the beach. Owners are very friendly and can refer you to fishing, the best locations for surfing, swimming beaches, snorkeling, etc. What more could you ask for?

Would we go again? The very next chance we get! See you there!

This place is exotic and picturesque in a Jimmy Buffet sort of way. Surrounded by the sound of birds and surf and attached to a delightful outdoor restaurant it is a definite "get away from it all" destination. The personnel are friendly and genuinely glad to see you.
The mood is laid back and road beyond the door is certainly the road less taken. This is my idea of an adult release from the pressure cooker of work and time constraints. The ocean is as blue as it gets and the surf and fishing community is present and primed to go. Off hours provided fantastic sunsets and endless blue skies.

My husband and I live in San Jose del Cabo and to get away from the daily chores, we always choose to go to Buzzards B&B to get away. The hosts are great and the people you meet are from all over and everyone has a great time together. The food is delicious and the rooms are so inviting and unique. Everything is very quite at night, so sleep is wonderful.
We recomend Buzzard's to everyone, and always look forward to our little get aways for a totally fun experience.
