Hotel Mar de Cortez
Secret Little Gem
My fiancee and I took a work-sponsored trip to Mexico. We decided to go a few days early to see the culture, before being stuck on a resort. After doing some research (tripadvisor.com mostly), we decided to go w/ the Hotel Mar de Cortez.
This little baby is right next to Cabo Wabo, the Giggling Marlin, and Jungle -- the most popular bars in Cabo San Lucas. It's also only 2 blocks to the Marina, where there's all sorts of things to do (snorkling, glass bottem boats, scuba, sailing, jet skiing, etc).
If you're looking for a luxury hotel with all of the same things that you'd expect at home, then this is NOT the hotel for you. If you're looking to get off the beaten path a little, don't care about a TV or Phone in the room, then check this place out. Our room was $50/night ($61 after tax). They have a pool, a bar, and plenty of local shops. A vast majority of the guests were American and very friendly.
Unique Quality: Excellent Location.
Directions: Ask a taxi
They will Rob you BLIND!!
We had over $500 worth of personal property stolen from our rooms- things that shouldn't have to be put into a safe deposit box (like clothes etc). Please do not stay here unless you want to be robbed!!!
Cheap and Occasionally Cheerful
Staying in the centre of town may be appealing if you look on the map. But the best thing about Cabo is the beach. So unless you are in town for something specific, like Sammy Hagar's Birthday Bash, steer clear.
Unique Quality: This place is aging. That means peeling paint, creaky floors and bar, reception and pool areas that have seen better days. But the queue for tickets when Sammy holds his birthday bash is right across the street. In other words, it's a wise choice for one night a year.
Directions: In the middle of cabo. Gym next door is handy
Great Budget Hotel
The Mar De Cortez is a colonial style hotel located in downtown Cabo about a half block from Cabo Wabo. It's one of the 3 original hotels on Cabo. I've stayed here on 4 seperate occasions, and each time it's been great. This is a hotel that caters mostly to fishermen, but the great location and excellent prices for what you get make it perfect for anyone. Most of their clientele are repeat customers.
First off the staff is extremely friendly. I had 4 years between my first and second trip, and they still remembered me!
This hotel has been owned by the same family for the last 30 years, and many of the employees have been there for years and years.
Their in-house restaurant -- Spencers -- is outstanding, and I would go there to eat even if I wasn't staying there.
Unique Quality: Charming Colonial-style building, friendly staff and great prices -- truely an incredible value!
Directions: At the corner of Avenida Lazaro Cardenas & Vicente Guerrero, about a half block from Cabo Wabo. Can't miss!
