Before I start; I just read a review that criticized the old towels,the dimly lit rooms, and other cosmetic issues. The only thing not mentioned was the people at the mar de cortez! It is not perfect. If you are looking for the Four Seasons, please go there. But if you are looking for people who go out of there...

This place was cheap at about $65/night. For that I was not expecting a fancy hotel, but at the very least a clean hotel with the basics. Especially considering the high praise and excellent reviews here and on other booking sites. The good: Excellent Location Nice Pool Cheap bar Mostly clean bedding Comfortable bed (although my wife would disagree) The...

I've been staying at the Mar de Cortez for over 20 years, first visiting in the 1990's and I have to say, gratefully, that things really haven't changed. Yes a new coat of paint was added a few years ago and really does make a difference but what really counts are the people you deal with year in and year...

We had a great stay at Mar De Cortez. This is a well kept older place with a very friendly and accommodating staff . No TV, no phone. The only thing we did not like was the bed. This is without question one of the hardest beds we have ever slept on. We went to Walmart bought a fome mattress...

Rooms all have balconies or patios; pool is great. Restaurant/bar has delicious food and 2 happy hours daily. All very reasonably priced. Walking distance to beach and...

Great place and budget friendly. Room was clean and the staff were very helpful with great customer service. The food at the restaurant was good as well. This place is a little gem for those traveling on a budget. Would definitely return.

Small hotel, rooms clean, roomy,comfortable. Very affordable, great location, centrally located and within walking distance to great restaurants. Staff are wonderful, knowlegable and many have been there for years. You feel like one of the family. This was our fourth visit over 10 years and worth the trip from the east coast of USA. There are people who come for...

We stay at Mar De Cortez for a couple nights before and after visiting a resort along the beach (Pueblo Bonito Blanco). This hotel is small and has a pool and small restaurant but I wouldn't recommend it for a longer stay. I do like how it's close to down-town, including the shops and restaurants (e.g., Cabo Wabo, La Quacamole)...

Another wonderful stay at MDC. I just love this quaint, affordable hotel in downtown Cabo. Such a great location and the staff is wonderful. I like the pool view rooms on the first floor. 2 happy hours daily at the bar/restaurant. 1-2pm and 5-6. This is a fantastic location for walking around downtown and the marina.
