Overall, Mar del Cabo was a perfect hideaway! We normally stay at boutique hotels and while looking around stumbled upon Mar del Cabo and took a shot. We were far from disappointed. The service was impeccable and the staff could not be any more attentive and nicer, and the food was a 10/10 (I would recommend their chicken, it was quite literally the best I've ever had). Sergio was so sweet and he did absolutely amazing on his first day! The hotel showed such cleanliness and provided the utmost convenience, laying on the beach and being served was a picture perfect vacation. I would recommend Mar del Cabo to anyone, however, we did get some cloudy weather and would've loved to enjoy drinks in a jacuzzi! All together, this was a great trip and Mar del Cabo and their staff catered more than enough and made the trip all the better!

My wife and I recently returned from a 7 day stay at this beautiful boutique Mar Del Cabo Hotel and had a wonderful stay. We have been coming to Los Cabos for several years now and stayed at various hotels but was referred to Mar Del Cabo by a relative who had visited the property. We now consider Mar Del Cabo our secret "hide away" for a beautiful setting, classic design modern rooms, cleanliness, superior customer service by all staff members, delicious food, central location, and at a fair pricing. The staff provided remarkable customer service and they all tried to make our day and tomorrow better. We felt a bit pampered and it was wonderful. We enjoyed the white sand beach and fantastic sunrises & sunsets. Pool area was secluded & comfortable. We treated our relatives to dinner at sunset and they were very impressed by the beauty of the restaurant setting and the delicious food. My brother is a picky eater and loved the grouper (catch of day) they served that night. A dinner we will all remember. Another convenience they offer is when you are returning to the USA you will need the covid 19 viral test (within 3 days before departure) and documented results. Mar Del Cabo offers free covid testing to guests with simple forms and then testing is done next door at the exquisite world class Grand Vela Hotel. So Simple!! Thank you to everyone at Mar Del Cabo for a wonderful stay and we are already planning our next visit to our beautiful 'hideaway'. john & rosa

Beautiful, authenic Mexican decor with up to date rooms. Reception beautiful. Pool and ocean front beautiful and relaxing. Restaurant great! Staff excellent; so professional, kind, and helpful. Although there are a lot of steps, the staff will take you down to the pool or up to reception on a golf cart.
