Affordable lodging in Cabo – Hotel Mar de Cortez
Want to vacation in Cabo San Lucas without breaking the bank? Then look no further. The Hotel Mar de Cortez is a charming, popular and affordable colonial-style Historical Landmark Hotel in the center of what once was the small fishing village of Cabo San Lucas.
The hotel with its 88 air-conditioned rooms, large swimming pool, Baja Peppers restaurant/bar AND free WI-FI, offers classic Mexican charm near beaches, golf, the marina, shopping and restaurants.
The Hotel Mar de Cortez was among the first three hotels in Cabo San Lucas when it was a quaint fishing village. The architecture of the rooms and suites reflect the charming Mexican flavor of southern Baja and each year the hotel upgrades various aspects of the facility. Each room is attractively appointed; some open up to the pool area, others to the courtyard.
Family owned and operated for the past 30 years, the hotel has also retained many of its friendly staff members who recognize returning guests with an especially warm smile. In fact, their repeat clientele is significant, surely attributed to their great service, excellent rates and gracious hospitality.
