Hotel was charming but needs some upgrading

Hotel staff was excellent, the amenities were aging but very clean, the pool was small, loud and always crowded. The food and drinks at the bar were very good and cheap. Very close to the marina and the beach

good location

The hotel was an older hotel with old time charm. The hotel was within walking distance of the Marina and shopping areas.The beds were a little hard but rooms were clean. The breakfast from the bar was excellent and reasonably priced. The staff was friendly. Will book again on the next trip.

No worries on this hotel!

We had a pleasant stay. Served our basic needs in a hotel. Place is clean. There is good ambience- very friendly staff and guests. Delicious food at the restaurant/bar. Kudos to the chef! Not to mention, prices are not expensive at all. Cons? I have to say the rooms/bathroom and the pool can use some renovation to be able to provide TV and Fridge in all rooms. And for cosmetic purpose of course. Pool needs to be clean more often. But over all, it's close to perfect place to stay in Cabo!❤️

Good place to relax

Pros: Great location and good happy hour.
Cons: The pool could be heated.
Location: Cabo Wabo is 100 yards away, many local Mexican restaurants and bars. Numerous shopping opportunities.
Mar de Cortez is not a fancy place, but it is so comfortable and is a great place to relax, meet new people and just hang out. A nice addition this year was a TV in each room and by next year we will get to watch it. We are usually so busy we don't even notice the lack of a TV. The Americano breakfast is the best deal in Cabo.

Nice Budget Hotel

Safe area that is close to the marina. Catch a city bus to San Jose and back just 5-6 blocks away! Goto bus station to get a round trip ticket to Todos Santos! Lots of tours and activities available at the marina.

Quaint hotel close to everything

Pros: Loved the old Mexican charm, beautiful flowers in courtyard, nice staff, refreshing pool and great location.
Cons: A showerhead that worked correctly would be great. Softer beds...they are very firm. They should tell you online they charge for the frig.
Location: Great location - you can walk to everything. Shops and restaurants are so close.Ten minute walk to the Marina area.
We were looking for a "real" Mexico hotel...not one of those ugly high rises. We loved Mar de Cortez. It is so quaint and has such charm. We loved the beautiful flowered filled courtyard surrounding the refreshing swimming pool and great bar. We enjoyed sitting out on our patio deck every day to enjoy the view. The location couldn't have been better. We ate at many of the small taco joints with great food less than five minutes away.
