Enjoyed our drive from La Paz over to Todos Santos to visit Hotel California. What a beautiful property. Lots of construction on the streets and roads to and from the hotel but well worth the walk. Don't miss Tequila Sunrise restaurant across the street.

The hotel's decoration is amazing. The stuff is really nice. It is a great getaway in a quiet environment. Beautiful on the inside as well on the outside. Our room had a great bed and a huge balcony overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The price was fair considering other resorts around. The pool was very nice but not so clean. And... More

Such friendly staff. Good food. Beautiful place. Be sure to stop here if for no other reason than to just walk around! But go for lunch and you won't regret it. Beautiful seating outside and no wait for a table.

This is really embarrassing. As I went to the restaurant and living here for 9+ years. I was looking forward to the nachos. Had them about 1 year ago and loved it but was sick that time. So we arrive, and I never have had such crappy service by the waiter Samuel, or at least that is what was in... More

Drove up the coast to visit during a trip to Cabos and thought it was great. We ate in the restaurant and there was no crowd in fact it was kinda a ghost town..very cool day trip. You can only access limited areas unless you are staying at the hotel for those who may want to see more to get... More

....because it appears that the town believes it is since everything seems to evolve around it. Regardless, I was glad we went to see it as it evokes flashbacks of bygone years when drugs and hippies ruled the world. Just take a walk through the lobby, the bar and the restaurant and I guarantee you'll get lost in time!

Our family had a great experience at the Hotel California during our recent trip to Todo Santos. Yes. There are parts that are touristy (like the gift shop). But, that is to be expected, given the name "Hotel California". We actually rented a villa nearby since we are a large family, but we visited the hotel for drinks and meals... More

We rented a car from Payless for $50 for 24 hours and drove from Cabo up the Pacific Ocean to Todos on our way to La Pez. Nice boutique hotel across from the best Margarita place in Mexico, Tequila Sunrise, winner of some World contest. Hotel has a souvenir shop. Roads in town were all under construction.

Every year that we go to Cabo we always make a trip up to Todos Santos to visit the Hotel California, which if you research it has nothing to do with the Eagles song. None the less we have fun just stopping in, having lunch walking around the town etc. Food here is great and I always thought the rita's... More
