“Best place for your money on the East Cape!”
Reviewed 7 January 2012

Had a wonderful time. From the room to the food to the fresh Civichi when we shared our catch of the day. What a wonderful time we had!

Room Tip: They wouldn't let me choose an alternate date. We were there at an earlier date. I would return...

If you are looking for a small town Mexico experience with hotel amenities, this is the place for you. Los Barriles is great for fishing, kite-boarding, wind-surfing and just plain relaxing. The beach is NEVER crowded. The hotel rooms are ok, the food quite good and the pools, etc. good. This hotel is locally owned by Mexicans and is worth a visit.

This place is about an hour north of San Jose del Cabo...and about and hour and 1/2 from Cabo San Lucus. It is primarily a resort for sports fishing, but we happened on the place a few years ago while driving and returned for a 3 day stay.

It's located on a quiet bay with beaches that stretch for miles and are largely empty, though the swimming is fine and the beaches wonderful. Just not a lot of people. There isn't much in town, but the food at the resort restaurants is outstanding and cheap...at least the fish and shrimp dishes are. Those were so good we never got past them. Great salads as well.

The rooms are just OK...and the matresses just passable. Everything is clean and neat and functional, but this is not elegant...just OK comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly and personalble at every turn.

We had a good time. Good place is you want to really get away and have a few VERY QUIET days in the Cabo area...or if you want to fish.

Still one of the better places to stay but REALLY showing it's age. Shower didn't work. AC wouldn't shut off. What would it take to have someone pick up the litter around the place, hire a waiter/tress for the pool or replace the chairs/umbrellas? Don't get me wrong. I have been going there for lots of years. Paying five star prices for a 2star hotel. Pick your boats carefully. The first one we had broke, no refund?? Ended up being directed (by someone else) to a private boat (Marlintini-sp?). Better than expected. Watched some guy get his finger smashed between the boat and dock.... no one seemed to care (at last discussion with him the hotel hadn't said a word-two days later).

I have stayed at hotel palmas de Cortez about 10 times. Although it's true that the hotel is not 5 stars. I usually go there for the fishing which has always been decent. can't believe all these people complaining. Guys this is raw fishing, so stop being such pusses. Catching that giant marlin makes up for all the shortcomings.
