This is a very friendly place to stay that will not break the bank this is a good option. It is clean but not at all fancy. The staff is helpful. The bed comfort is not the best but not horrible. The place really could use a facelift but it is fine. You will bump into friendly people by the...

I have stayed here many of time. Price is fantastic. Very nice clean hotel with swimming pool, restaurant, and bar. Rooms all have Refrigerated air. Very good staff. Best part is that it is walking distance to all the action and the marina. Would recommend this place to anyone.

We have stayed at the Mar for a few years now, adding a few days to our timeshare weeks. From Nat at the reservation office to Ana at the hotel, and everyone in between, you are all great!! For those who've posted negative reviews maybe you should go spend a few hundred a night elsewhere! The value here exceeds the...

Thank you, '3FC' from Port Orchard, WA, for your great review. Yes, we have often been described as the best kept secret in Cabo San Lucas and an oasis in downtown Cabo. Thanks for sharing about the poolside dining. It's a great 'plus' that our guests so enjoy not just because of the experience, but because the food is just...

The customer service, location, rates, and the food were phenomenal. Even our friends staying at their over-priced 5-star timeshare spent the remainder of their vacation hanging out with us at the Hotel Mar de Cortez. Perfect little oasis in the middle of everything. Begining with the reservations, through out our stay, and even after we left Cabo - the staff...

Thank you 'getusthere' for sharing your experience for others considering where to stay in Cabo. A hotel in downtown Cabo has many advantages most of which you included in your review. One's experience makes all the difference in the world when it comes to travel and you hit the ball out of the park when you listed customer service, food,...

The Hotel Mar de Cortez is located in the middle of Cabo San Lucas and you can easily walk to most attractions such as the beach, harbor or shopping. This family owned hotel is well maintained, secure, and the staff is friendly and helpful. There is a good restaurant in the hotel, but there are lots of inexpensive local eateries...

You are absolutely right Fruebertt about our location. As they say in real estate... location, location, location. Now, if you want to be in town, then yes this is the place. As noted in another recent review, we are about a 15 minute walk to the beach, and only a 5 min. walk to the marina. Yes, many prefer upper...
