You will not find plush designer towels, big screen TV's or an all inclusive option. Nor will you be hounded by time share representatives, long check in or check...

Compared to resort-type hotels, this is a no-frills place. However, my wife and I loved it. it is charming, located in the heart of Cabo, clean, secure, and with a nice pool, bar, and excellent service. Plus the rates are extraordinarily good. Just a great value!!
