Just an hour up the road you can get away from the hustle of Cabo and live a little slower for a day. I am not certain more than a day trip is for most, but a day trip was a good investment for us. Town has many shops, restaurants, and galleries to shop at. Locals are very kind and... More

I have been going to cabo for 20 years. For the past 10, I have been making the journey to Todos Santos for 1 or 2 nights. It's a great way to change the pace while you are in cabo. There are really 2 great places to stay in town, Hotel California or The Todos Santos Inn. I prefer HC... More

We stopped off at this famous hotel and we were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the lobby and bar area. The jalapeño margaritas are delicious! Great spot to stop on your way to La Paz or on your way back to Cabo from La Paz. However, while we were in the bar we met some Americans and they told... More

Went to Todos Santos and had to make a stop at Hotel California. The kids were as happy as we were, they have heard the song. The souvenir shop is very nice and has good prices. Would like to back and stay there for a couple of days.

Even though we were feeling bad it was a good experience. Their tacos were good. We had the taco platter from the appetizer menu. Our favorite was the beef. Mojitos were nice, and he was nice enough to give me glasses of ice water for free. The waiter didn't make us wait long for anything. Great atmosphere. Hopefully will be... More

We couldn't believe how delicious the food here was! We were just driving through on our way to Los Cabos. We had lunch and I had the best fish fillet of my whole weeklong trip to Baja! I actually ordered the fish burger without the bread (carb free) and they were able to substitute fries for steamed broccoli with butter.... More

Second brief visit to Hotel California was as pleasant as first! Great location within walking distance from most tourist attractions in Todos Santos. This extremely small hotel has a great dining patio with typical Mexican food. Just off the patio you may remain in the bar area and enjoy the wonderful drinks both Mexican or American. Even though there is... More

Not a bad drive from Cabo San Lucas. Everything I imagined. The restaurant served the best chicken enchiladas with a green tomatillo salsa that I have had in quite some time. It was definitely worth the drive.

Stayed at Hotel California July 1-3. Love this place. Comfortable bed and balcony where I played cribbage. Beautiful artwork and landscaping. Clean and fun. Great food and Tequila centrally located in town. Awesome value as well. Love it!

Lots of great architectural details, and at night it has a kind of mysterious atmosphere, with candles lighting the way. The room was adequate in size. Very comfy bed. Not a lot of storage space. No TV, which was fine with me. The restaurant is first-rate. Everything I tried was excellent. And it's right in the middle of central TS,... More
