My hubby and I had breakfast here. The food was expensive and not great. Seemed to be all men working there and lacked a personal feel. Maybe it would be a good place for a Friday night party, but not breakfast. For that, go to Las Fuentes.

If you are visiting Southern Baja Mexico you must visit the wonderful town of Todos Santos. It is about one and half hours from Cabo San Lucas and the drive is wonderful. The famous Hotel California which inspired the Eagles to write about it is a MUST SEE experience. Not only is the town quaint but the people, the beautiful... More

We weren't going to rate Hotel California. Really. It's a tourist attraction with 500 TripAdvisor reviews. Who needs another one? But we stopped in the bar for a drink, and I was incredibly impressed with the bartender. I didn't get his name, but if the boss is reading this, the guy working yesterday afternoon (15 Nov 2016) needs a raise!... More

Todos Santos is a remarkable place, and Hotel California adds to the magic. In fact, it's a big part of it. Whether it's THE Hotel California (many say it is), pales into insignificance when you get there. This place is terrific, with or without the legend. It's a must - even if it's just for a lunch (the flautas and... More

Flies abound in Todos Santos, especially on very hot muggy days. But then, so do people. We made our one day annual excursion for Cabo San Lucas, a nice drive on excellent freeways with almost no traffic. After walking around for a while we stopped for drinks and food at one of our favorite restaurants and again, it did not... More

I've always heard of it and wanted to go there. The last 2 years my wife & I have stayed in San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. Both times we rented cars and drove to Todos Santos to see the Hotel California. It was great both times. Once was a Sunday, and the town was pretty much closed... More

We ate at the restaurant associated with the Hotel California. Service was excellent, the food was awesome, especially the crab cakes with a Tequila mayonnaise sauce. Enchiladas Verde were very good, large portion, with tomatillo sauce. Highly recommend it.

My first trip to HC was probably around 2003. It was rough but had only been reopened a few years before after being boarded up for a long time. Next trip was around 2006 or '07 and I could tell a lot of work had been done. Yesterday, my girlfriend and I drove to HC from Cabo to spend the... More
