Baytown, Texas15 contributions4 helpful votes
This hotel is close to almost everything you want or need in Cabo. Hotel restaurant is amazing. Pool area and garden very nice. Staff here are very helpful and friendly. Everything is super clean and orderly. Private parking for the car. Beds are comfortable, didn't seem like they would be when I first saw them but after sleep on them all good. Needs to have English television access in the rooms, I could only find one. Needs password protected wi fi. The do have wi fi but anyone anywhere has access. I will definitely be back too stay at Cortez..

Thank you for your review, Tlee5555. Your information will be most helpful to others looking for a special place to stay in downtown Cabo\ and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Re the TV and Wi-Fi, we have several English TV stations... 14 to be exact. And re Wi-Fi, it is usually quite good but the bottom line is that in all of Cabo it is up and down but our reception I'm told is limited to the hotel area. Thanks again for your input and we hope to see you again when you come back to Cabo down the road.

We were heading to Cabo for a wedding at a huge resort outside the Cabo area and decided to stay few nights before here. What a great find at a reasonable price which included breakfast. This place is very clean and you can tell it’s dated but that adds to the flavor of the resort. The pool area was awesome and room enough for everyone staying. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. This place is also centrally located so shopping and bar hopping are right outside the grounds. We will definitely be coming back.

This is a old school Mexican Hotel. Location is right in the heart of Cabo. Walk in off the street and the hotel justs opens up and has the whole city block. Wonderful staff and a wonderful daily breakfast included in the nightly rate.

Thank you for your review, Delilah8020, even if it is negative. It's unfortunate that you did not discuss your dissatisfaction with the front desk staff; they would have helped you to change rooms. And they need to know when guests are unhappy. We have countless satisfied guests so we do hope you will consider giving us a second chance sometime down the road. Management has been made aware of your frustration.

This is the 2nd time I have stayed here. I love it here. The staff are incredible and super accommodating. Yes, there are no TVs or phones in the room, but come on, you're on vacation. If you need a TV use your iPad etc. It is in a great location and within walking distance to everywhere.

Thank you, lizzie_belle11, for your recent review. And thank you for your kind words and info for others to review. I guess you didn't know... we do have TV's in all of our Garden View Rooms, our Superior and Superior King rooms and a few of the poolside rooms for those who really enjoy them. And of course... location, location, location... so important for folks wanting to stay in downtown Cabo... close to the marina, restaurants, shopping and a 15-20 minute walk to Playa Medano. We look forward to your return and thanks again for taking the time to write down your thoughts.
