The Mar de Cortez provides classic Mexican hospitality in the heart of Cabo San Lucas. Quiet rooms, a delightful pool, good restaurant, friendly service and reasonable prices. Secure parking is a plus, but day or night, everything is within walking distance.

Stayed: May 2018, travelled with friends

Loved every minute at Hotel Del Mar.The rooms and grounds were always clean and hospitality as superb. Gracias to Alex,Reggie, Eduardo and the rest of the staff. Close to many attractions nearby. Enjoyed watching the World Cup with Reggie and Gerado in the bar.

Thank you, Ben C for your recent review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and yes, the sport events on TV in the bar are a popular attraction. We appreciate your input, as will others searching for a downtown hotel with a pool, restaurant, bar, and TV's in some of the rooms, mini fridges in some of the rooms... lots of reasons why to stay with us. We hope to see you again when you return to Cabo.

I needed somewhere central and cheapish to stay with a pool, Hotel Mar de Cortez fitted the bill and i am pleased to say i will return here when i re-visit cabo next year.
Pro's
Clean well kept reception, bar, restuarant and pool area.
Very polite reception staff always helpful and smiling
Felt safe security always around
Central location not on top of the mayhem but near enough for a 2 minute walk if you want it
Cons
Booked a shuttle pick up from airport through Mar de cortez with "Class VIP" they tried to scam me out of more money straight away. Told me the shuttle had gone and i must pay $160.00 for a private taxi. I refused and tried to call the office, this went back and forth until they said they could get me on another shuttle for $20, i again refused, then they walked me to the shuttle that was waiting all along and i was taken to my hotel, angry after a 20 hour flight and then scammers waiting for me.No tip was given to driver of course.
Pool is heavily treated with chemicals i could not open my eyes in the water
Drunken fellow visitors woke me every night but this isn't the hotels fault i suppose.

Room Tip: I paid the extra few $$$ for a pool side room, may not have been the quietest choice.

Thank you for your review, Daniel S, and for taking the time to share your experience. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at the hotel and will return on your next visit to Cabo. We apologize for the Class VIP experience; seems there was a complete mix up at the Cabo end and we are sorry you were the brunt of it. Normally they are exceptional in their service and this is the first time this type of experience has been shared with us. VIP is aware of your posting. Your review has been sent to management so they can address your 'cons' there at the hotel. Thanks again, and we look forward to your return.

This is an older property, but is very well maintained. We stayed in one of the rooms that have not been renovated and had no issues. The room was spacious and although the mattress was quite firm we slept well. The bathroom is small but adequate. There is a central courtyard with a lovely pool and plenty of trees and flowers that we found quite relaxing. The restaurant is excellent and all of the staff are friendly and professional. Location is within walking distance of the marina and the beach. I would certainly stay here again!

I rate it very good but that’s based on the $40 a night I paid! Sure it’s not a fancy all inclusive resort like I usually stay at but wanted to try something different. Located in the heart of town and a half block from the Cabo Wabo Cantina as well as tons of bars, restaurants and shops. You walk everywhere and plenty of deals to be found nearby for food and drinks. The smaller pool was pretty nice and easy to get spots. All the guests were pretty friendly and it felt more like a small apartment complex than a motel. About half mile walk to the beach. Great option if you want to go on a budget, stay in town near everything or just do your own thing.
