Thank you for your review, Delilah8020, even if it is negative. It's unfortunate that you did not discuss your dissatisfaction with the front desk staff; they would have helped you to change rooms. And they need to know when guests are unhappy. We have countless satisfied guests so we do hope you will consider giving us a second chance sometime down the road. Management has been made aware of your frustration.

Hotel's Favorite
I took the leap of spending 5 days in Cabo July 11th - the 16th. The hotel is the same as advertised, old Mexican charm with tremendous food, impeccably clean and the most welcoming staff from Nat, Ephrahim and Martha in front to Sergio, Joaquin, Javier and Marvin keeping the guests happy and drinks full. They have gone the extra mile with the cleanliness and sanitation requirements with a cleaning station as you come in and every single member of the staff wearing a combo mask/face shield at all times. I felt very safe. It was only about 30% capacity for the time I was there but it was a great group of guests all roughly my age and we all seemed to have a great time partying together by the pool. You can draw your own conclusions but if the status of the hotel is one of them you can rest assured they are doing everything they can to make you safe, comfortable and happy. Thanks to all at the Hotel Mar de Cortez and I'll see you in November!

This is the 2nd time I have stayed here. I love it here. The staff are incredible and super accommodating. Yes, there are no TVs or phones in the room, but come on, you're on vacation. If you need a TV use your iPad etc. It is in a great location and within walking distance to everywhere.

Thank you, lizzie_belle11, for your recent review. And thank you for your kind words and info for others to review. I guess you didn't know... we do have TV's in all of our Garden View Rooms, our Superior and Superior King rooms and a few of the poolside rooms for those who really enjoy them. And of course... location, location, location... so important for folks wanting to stay in downtown Cabo... close to the marina, restaurants, shopping and a 15-20 minute walk to Playa Medano. We look forward to your return and thanks again for taking the time to write down your thoughts.

We have stayed at the Mar de Cortez for several years now. I make our reservations thru Nat who is absolutely amazing. Nat is always eager to help and make whatever accommodations and changes we request. Everyone at the hotel is very kind, polite and beyond helpful. The food is super good! And who doesn't love free breakfast! We especially love the location of the hotel. Literally within walking distance of everything you need. There is an amazing fruit stand nearby that made us fresh squeezed grapefruit juice! The Marina is only a few blocks away. Restaurants and shops everywhere. Another thing we especially love about this hotel is the cleanliness of the rooms and the entire property!! Definitely our favorite place to stay in Cabo!!

Thank you, 439beccab, for your upbeat 'all inclusive' review. We so enjoy your visits and look forward to your return down the road... of course. I think with this review you have helped others to appreciate all we have to offer and for that I say thank you. Yes... that fruit stand is something special, isn't it. Thanks again...

I have stayed here for the last 35 years and have never been disappointed. My last stay in March of 2021 was no exception. The hotel manager even set up and took us to Urgent Care to get our departure Covid tests. She even covered the cab to the test site! This is another example of how the staff go over and above. One thing I love about this hotel is the location. It is two blocks to the Marina. There are probably 30 restaurants within 2 blocks each way from the hotel. The restaurant and bar serve great food and drinks. The hotel and pool area are kept very clean.

Thank you, Z4133VVjimr, for your great review. And especially for mentioning the complimentary assistance to/from getting your Covid tests which is offered to all having to go get tested. You and so many others have been returning year after year and everyone is so much like family. Yes, location, location, location...is what it's all about. We are like an oasis in downtown Cabo. Thanks again for taking the time to post here and we look forward to your next visit.
