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.

There is private parking behind the hotel, a satellite TV in the bar, filtered drinking water in each room, and a public phone in the lobby. There are safe deposit boxes at the front desk and security precautions throughout the hotel 24/7. Free wireless connections are available for your laptop computer and there are internet cafe hookups nearby for a reasonable fee. They have a large walk-in freezer for the fishermen to store their fish.

Standard Rooms

The 27 Standard Rooms are all ground floor rooms, with the exception of four, and have a queen plus a twin bed; or double plus a twin; or two double beds. One room has a king bed only. Most of these rooms were part of the original construction in the late 1960s, reflecting the charm and warm Mexican flavor in their design. Most rooms have a porch opening to either the courtyard or pool

Terrace Rooms

The 18 Terrace Rooms opened in October 2001 and were an instant hit. They are all upper level and each has a queen plus a twin bed, and opens up to an extended terrace/walkway with tables and chairs overlooking the hotel’s courtyard and palm trees. The rooms are bright, nicely appointed, and accommodate one or two persons. Relax on the terrace in the warmth of the Baja air as you enjoy your morning coffee and a good book.

Garden Rooms

The 20 Garden View Rooms all have a queen bed & a double bed, an extra large recently remodeled in ’04 & ’05 shower and bath area with either a private patio or balcony overlooking the garden and pool. These large rooms are always in demand and can accommodate up to three persons comfortably.

King Suites

The 10 extra-large King Suites are tucked back in the corners of the hotel and accommodate up to four people easily. These suites are one large room with a king plus two twin beds. All suites have a very large shower and bath area plus a sitting area. Suites are especially suitable for families.

Suites 2 + 2

The 6 extra-large Suites are also tucked back in the corners of the hotel and accommodate up to four people easily. A 2 plus 2 suite is one large room with two double and two twin beds.

    If your a budget minded traveler looking for possible the best location in Cabo look no further then the Mar de Cortez. It just off the marina area with lots of great local shops and restaurants within a short walk.
    They have wonderful restuarant onsite called Baja Peppers which serves up good food and drinks around the pool on in their different dining rooms. Beakfast is a steal at $3 and good. They have dinner specials thru-out the week and are priced fairly.
    Good safe parking and 24 hour onsite security for the hotel.
    Maybe one of the best street Taco vendors that I 've ever eatin at just 100 feet outside the front door at night, these guys are doing a killer job serving up the freshest tacos in all of Cabo in my opinion.
