If you're not looking for something fancy, priced right, has decent food, a cozy bar and a good pool and a great location, this is it. I've stayed here half a dozen times for a few nights each time on my way home from La Paz. People are friendly, easy access to the Marina and not to far a walk... More

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 May 2016

My friends and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at Mar de Cortez last week! We booked 3 Standard Pool View rooms and were all next to each other in 115, 116, 117, and one King Suite which was just around the corner in 501. Check in was easy and received our towel cards for the pool. We had requested mini... More

Centrally located, with a great restaurant and bar along with a very nice swimming pool. It seemed to be an older crowd of repeat visitors from USA and Canada. We were a little surprised that both rooms we stayed in did not have televisions, but we survived and based on price and cleanliness, water pressure and air conditioning, this is... More

The room cost 50 bucks a night, I was brought here by the favorable reviews. The room itself is nothing special, but it was clean and comfortable, which is all you can ask for 50.00.. the pool and bar area are pretty nice and the food and drinks are as affordable as anywhere in Cabo.. We stayed 2 nights before... More

It is located in town and has tons of local type shopping and decent bars near... the rooms are dated..shower is old, no TV, beds are not the most... More

I got a great rate on this hotel that included free breakfast. It is a clean, basic hotel in a great location where you can walk all over Cabo. It is for people who want to see real Mexico. If you need a swim-up bar, tv, safe in room, soft towels, heavenly beds...this is not for you. If you are... More

Ok, this is not a resort, keep that in mind. But if you want to experience Mexico, I recommend this Hotel. It is within walking distance of everything. This was our first trip to Cabo and we are very glad we stayed here. The hotel had everything we needed, and allowed us to walk the town and experience all that... More

Very nice hotel in the center of town. Very nice pool and restaurant. The grounds are nicely maintained. Within walking distance of the marina and lots of shopping. Cabo Wabo is just across the street. Rooms were a little sparse kind of like a motel 6 at home but really clean. Our room did have a mini fridge. Staff were... More

We love the Mar de Cortez! Have been staying there in October, usually for about 12 days, for the last 5 or 6 years. We couldn't ask for nicer or friendlier staff, a great restaurant, beautiful grounds & pool area and within walking distance to downtown and the pier. We definately recommend this hotel if you're looking to relax after... More

Mar de Cortez is a great, centrally located hotel. The staff are all very friendly and very helpful. Restaurant is good, rooms and pool are kept clean. It is a great little community! It's a short walk to shops, dining, and the beautiful marina.
