“Dont Stay At This Place! Dishonest People Own IT!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2008

I just wanted to warn guests that I booked a 3 day stay with Marisol. I was instructed to deposit $85 in their american account which I promtly did with no problem. I was emailing with the co-owner of the hotel ( her father named it after her) Marisol. She booked out reservation and then let me know that their was a 24 hour cancelation fee of one night.
We had rented a house in Todos Santos for a week of our trip so on our way out of town we stopped by and introduced ourselves and took a look around. No problem, meet Marisol and asked to upgrade to a view room if possiable.
Halfway through our trip my Father was very ill and I had to head back to the states. I called 4 days before our booking and Marisol promised our deposit back. As of now ( 3/17/2008)with many emails between us. Marisol has now stopped returning my emails and has not refunded my money! Please don't stay at this Place! Dishonest people!

We stayed in the Marisol Hotel for a total of 3 nights in March, 2007. The owners are wonderful people, very friendly and helpful. The first two nights, we stayed in a standard room for $75/night including tax, and credit cards are accepted. A continental breakfast is included Monday through Saturday. Fresh fruit, granola, yogurt, pastries, juice, and coffee. Our room included two double beds, bath and hand towels, soap, lotion, shampoo, and beach towels and chairs upon request. The first night, there was a lot of noise from music and traffic. The curtains did not block out the street lights, so we hung the beadspread over the curtain to keep out the light. The second night, there was no noise at all. The room also included a tv and a small balcony, and had high vaulted ceilings and a/c. It was clean and basic.
The hotel is not regularly staffed. However, when the staff is there, they will attend to all of your needs. While the hotel is not directly on the beach, it is a short two minute walk, and you will practically have the beach to yourself. This hotel is a great price for the beach location. The walk to town was about two miles, or you can take public transportation, which I believe is only 50 cents and the bus runs right in front of the hotel. The restaurant downstairs from the hotel had excellent food and service.
From the airport we took a shuttle bus for $13/person that took us directly to our hotel. The cabs from the airport are $50. To get back to the airport from our hotel, we were directed to go to Mega Supermarket across the street, and found cabs in the parking lot that took us back to the airport for $20.
We decided to spend only 2 nights in San Jose del Cabo, and Andrea was the best in helping us plan our trip to Todos Santos. She recommended restaurants and hotels, called several hotels, and booked the hotel for us. She gave us information about the bus to take us to Todos Santos. The bus station was about a one mile walk, with a two hour ride to Todos Santos for less than $10/person. The bus was comfortable, clean, easy, and showed a movie. After spending 3 nights in Todos Santos, and then 2 nights in La Paz, we emailed the Marisol Hotel to see if they had a room available for our last night. Their email responses are always immediate, and they let us know that they were booked. However, a few hours later, they emailed back to let us know that they received a cancellation. We went back to the Marisol for our final night and stayed in the suite, given to us for the same price as the standard. The suite was much nicer than the standard room. It had a seperate, small room with a futon, counter, refrigerator, and then the main room with two beds, tv, and small balcony with an ocean view. The room was quiet that night, and didn't seem to have as much of a problem with the lights shining in the room at night as our other room did. We enjoyed our stay in the Marisol Hotel.
I would definately recommend this hotel. As I said, the owners are wonderful, friendly people. The hotel is clean, and if you prefer a beach location, this hotel is close to the beach, and very economical.

We recently stayed in this hotel for a couple of days as a transition between other accomodation. On the positive side, this hotel was immaculate, 1 block to the beach, close to a large grocery store and local bus stops and central for getting into the down town area of San Jose. The owner and his daughters were very lovely people. The prices were higher than previously quoted, $85 US per night not including taxes. This translated into $109 Canadian per night with taxes in.
On the negative side, we were there over a weekend, and no staff were around. It kind of made us wonder about security, as anyone from the street could have walked up to the rooms. It also mean't that we were unable to contact hotel staff when we needed something. The beds were very hard, and as previously stated it was very noisy at night due to the neighbouring liquor store. Possibley this was all more challenging over a weekend.
If you are a traveller and can go with the flow, this hotel is a little gem, and personally I would stay here again. If however you are a tourist and used to staying in resorts and upper class hotels, you will likely be frustrated . Then again, you will need to expect to pay considerably more.

we had to relocate for the last two days of our vacation so we went to the marisol.. we could not view the suite we were going to rent however it was made to sound wonderful. once there we realized the noise coming from the traffic pulling up to the store directly beneath us, which was open till about 2am, was a bit much with radios blasting etc.. we had to keep the windows and doors shut and use the a/c because of that.. no coffee maker, although promised one, and only 3 channels on the tv.. 2 in spanish, 1 in english with spanish subtitles.. although we only watched a bit of tv at night a spanish with english subtitles would have been better. they do have a dish on the roof but you sure would not know it by the choices. the room ( suite) has 2 beds in it and poorly laid out in my opinion...hard mattresses and confining.. i do not want to trash this hotel however i would not stay in it again. i would look for alternate accommadation even if it cost a little more. in my humble opinion it is not worth the money we paid, which was about 85 us dollars, tax incl.
later on the marisol however the restaurant has great food..

  • Liked — a place to sleep and shower
  • Disliked — no coffee maker, not much room, noisy, not worth the money

I thought I had reviewed this hotel before. In a nutshell, then, my second review. Hard beds, no personnel on site after 1 pm Saturday. Other guests were locked in on Sunday morning, as you need a key to get out. Luckily we were there. No breakfast on Sunday. Nice Italian restaurant downstairs not open on Sunday--we got coffee at McDonalds., a little drive. Bright sunshine through thin curtains in the afternoon if you face south, and bright bright streetlights at night. We had to leave our departure note on the McD's napkin, as there was not even a piece of paper. It is close to the mall and to the beach. Young vacationers might like it for that, as the cost is reasonable. Hotel is clean but spare. However, we moved after one night to the Tropicana in the middle of town.

Stayed January 2007
