Hotel's Favourite
This place is just WOW! I don't know if I am able to say enough great things about Mar Del Cabo. We stayed a full week at Mar Del Cabo and ended the week with the most magical wedding at their property. Seeing the property in person was such a surreal moment because it looks exactly like the photos. Since most all of our family and friends stayed at the hotel it was like we had our own little resort, it was so so perfect! The food was absolutely amazing, there was nothing we didn't like! Our group probably ordered 15 orders of nachos a day, yes, they were that good! Even the food at our wedding was some of the best fish we have ever had! They were very organized and made sure everything was all set for the rehearsal and wedding day. Angela was who helped me coordinate everything for the wedding and she was so communicative and organized the whole time. She was so nice and explained everything so well and made sure everything was perfect for each event. She was amazing! The staff at Mar Del Cabo will forever have my heart! They worked so so hard for all of us and always had a smile and were so so friendly! They remembered names of people, specific orders people would get, and became some of the best parts of the week. We even got pictures with staff members at the wedding because they were so great to us! The pool was great, the beach was so perfect, the rooms were amazing (the showers were one of my favorite parts haha!) So many perfect spots to take photos, I could go on and on! Mar Del Cabo we 1000% be back!!!!

Response from Gerardo Vela, Director General at Mar Del Cabo By Velas Resorts
Responded 30 Jul 2021
Chad & Sealy, on behalf of Angela and all the staff at Mar del Cabo, I congratulate you on your loving union and thank you for allowing Mar del Cabo to be the setting that you will now remember for the rest of your lives. I am glad that you had plenty of time before your wedding to relax and feel the vibe of our boutique hotel. With just a few refinements along the way, you were able to step back and let Angela and her team put everything together just as you scripted it. Now your kind words, stunning photos, and long-lasting memories will be a testament for all time to the success of your wedding and the love and joy that was shared by all the family and friends who took part. Sealy, we, too, can't wait to have you "1000%" back with us to relive the warm memories and to give that meaningful spot to reminisce on everything that brought you both to this cherished moment. Until then, we wish you a long and loving future and place ourselves at your service for all your future needs and requirements. Congratulations! GERARDO VELA DIRECTOR GENERAL MAR DEL CABO

What a special place. An absolute gem. This hotel is one of the last two original resorts remaining in Cabo. It has a Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez classic 50's vibe with all the modern upgrades and touches. The hospitality is second to none. We were greeted warmly by the front desk staff and handed a lovely welcome beverage. They instantly offered how they can help plan any activity to help make our stay everything we hoped it would be. They check in with us regularly. Property: The private 40-room property is tiered into the mountainside and draped in gorgeous pink bougainvillea. Many of the rooms are accented with brightly colored new hammocks. The maintenance staff is understated, however, they are constantly manicuring every corner of the property - from paint to landscape, to cleaning. It's a beautiful classic that is well maintained. We loved the flexibility and proximity of the beach cabanas, and beach and pool lounge chairs. The pool towels were fresh and the service was prompt. The pool was the perfect temperature and it was fun to mix up our locations each day. The layout of the pool and restaurant made us feel very private - which we loved. Rooms: The rooms were all very spacious, comfortable, well-appointed and had incredible views. The air conditioning worked great! The daily cleaning service always left something special. Food and Beverages: JUST YUM! Every single breakfast and lunch was DELISH. The avo toast, the bagel and lox, the fresh organic salads, the ahi tacos, I mean everything was sooooo good. We were worried one restaurant might feel stale, but we never felt that way on our 5 day stay. The staff was also open to making specialty drinks or even eggs and bacon if you asked. Staff: I mean - AHHH MAZING. The General Manager, Gerarado Vella, checked in with us multiple times and deeply cared about our feedback. We very much enjoyed our conversation with him and really respected his commitment to excellence. The food and beverage crew was just awesome - especially VICTOR!!!! Checked in with us often, always walked out to the sand, offered creative ideas ...and they were just GOOD HUMANS! We felt so spoiled and very grateful. If you have a chance to stay - DO IT!!! Romantic, delicious, beautiful and wonderful.

My wife, two adult daughters and I have just returned from a very pleasant vacation in Mexico. We had the pleasure of staying at Mar Del Cabo Upon arriving, we were greeted by all and were offered a very refreshing drink as we checked in. All employees at the resort were courteous and were attentive. We enjoyed our clean , comfortable suites with private entrances. The pool was clean and refreshing plus there was a private beach. We would definitely recommend Mar Del Cabo. Tim - USA

This lovely gem exceeded our expectations! Our ocean-front suite was the perfect location, steps to the private beach and pool. All of the staff were excellent, the service and the food very, very good. Our suite was very comfortable with the kitchen, bedroom, and walk-in shower. Spotlessly clean. Great service at the beach and the pool and plenty of recommendations of other places to visit. We loved it and will definitely be back!

This was our second time staying at Mar del Cabo. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy what Cabo has to offer. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, with bougainvillea framing the charming architecture and ocean view. The suites are clean, comfortable and spacious. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite which was perfect for our needs. The staff are friendly and provide excellent service. I celebrated a birthday during our stay and the staff kindly presented me with the most delicious cake I've ever had. The restaurant, Encanto, truly is top notch! The food is fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. We enjoyed having our meals there daily and taking in the stunning ocean view. We will definitely be back.

The grounds are so beautiful and well kept! This hotel was a well-kept secret in this area for the price! The rooms were very clean and spacious. I stayed in a 1 bedroom suite one night and then a two bedroom suite the following 3 nights. While the 2 bedroom suite was great, the bathrooms and closet space were much smaller compared to the 1 bedroom. I feel like they could’ve enlarged the bathrooms and bedrooms at the cost of some of the kitchen and living room space in the two bedroom suites. That being said, it’s great that both bedrooms had their own private bathrooms regardless of the size. Both suites were very clean and nice. The staff was friendly and attentive and often went above and beyond. Special shout out to Victor and Sergio who took care of our large family who were at the hotel for a wedding!

Perfect from arrival as they handed us hibiscus lemonade drink the same color as the bougainvillea framing the ocean view from the lobby at the top of the property. Nestled in the hillside right over the beach, the property has a lot of stairs but they golf carted us right to our door and was not an issue for us. Stayed in an ocean view room overlooking the pool to the beach. Well appointed suite, colorfully but tastefully decorated for a classy furnished condo feel with seating area and full kitchen with dining table. Comfortable and the room service from their restaurant was the best food we had in Cabo, exquisite! Bar service in the pool, beach connects to other oceanfront hotels and restaurants. We'll be back.
