Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came here for our 30th anniversary and it is a hidden gem! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we had the best service. All the staff we encountered were so friendly and welcoming. This is one of the reasons we love coming to Cabo because we feel so welcomed.

We enjoyed breakfast at Encanto every morning and we want to compliment Victor and Fachis for their excellent service. In the late afternoon or evenings, Sergio and Eufracia also provided outstanding service. We appreciated our conversations with each of them, their attention to detail, and their friendly personalities. In addition, to the great service, all of our meals at Encanto were delicious. We also met the general manager, Gerardo, who was equally welcoming and friendly!

We had the opportunity to spend a couple of afternoons next door at the sister property Gand Velas. The service and food there was also excellent.

Although Mar del Cabo is small, it makes up for the size with it's charm and outstanding staff. The beach views are beautiful and we were an Uber ride from both San Jose and San Lucas. If you want a relaxing stay without a large crowd, this is the place for you.

I took my two daughters to Mar del Cabo for a 4 day-long girls trip. We travel overseas quite a bit and we unanimously agreed this is one of the most beautiful hotels we have ever stayed in. The environment is almost surreal; bougainvilleas line the tiled staircase that leads directly to the beach. The entire hotel is indoor/outdoor which is an incredible touch that makes you feel so connected to the peaceful environment.

The rooms were pristinely kept and the perfect balance between modern and tropical. Our suite had views of the ocean in both one bedroom and the living area. The staff was always available and willing to bring us more espresso pods or extra towels. We were always met with smiles and helpfulness by everyone working at the hotel.

The restaurant located on the premises, Encanto, has an awesome selection at reasonable prices. We had breakfast there every morning, overlooking the ocean. The service was timely and accommodating. My daughters are vegetarians and Cristian was more than happy to edit dishes to fit their dietary restrictions.

The beachside service was also sublime (we cannot rave enough about the nachos, which we, embarrassingly, ordered daily!). The beach chairs were clean and there were plenty of cushioned, covered areas, as well as umbrellas. The pool was beautiful and clean, too.

The beach was exactly what we wanted. We whale watched most mornings. Unlike some beaches in Cabo, we were only approached twice by vendors. The section the hotel is located on is quiet and calm; this was not a typical spring break scene, in the best way. We did not swim and I’m not sure if it’s permitted in the immediate area, so maybe do some research if swimming is on your list.

Lastly, we do think it’s important to note that the hotel is built on the side of a hill so stairs are a part of getting to and from your room and the beach (we counted 112 steps for our commute). This was not an issue for us but may present one for some. The staff did provide a golf cart to bring our luggage to the lobby which was a convenience.

Overall, we had a wonderful stay. We got home and immediately started planning our next trip. Selfishly, we don’t want to recommend so we can keep this hidden gem to ourselves!

Thank you so much, Jennifer, for entrusting Mar del Cabo to host you and your daughters, while at the same time becoming "one of the most beautiful hotels" on your extensive list of international travels. At Mar del Cabo, we designed our service, product, and ambiance for the pleasure of the affluent traveler. A traveler who places a priority on the finer things in life rather than the frenzied pace of a typical March Break experience. And without a doubt, your daughters will benefit enormously from trips like this one, and you too will have felt an incredible joy by sharing these magical moments in the beautiful company of your family. It is also important to mention, Jennifer, that during these challenging times, your health and wellbeing are paramount for us. On your next visit to this paradise, you will find that, on top of our stringent cleaning standards, we have incorporated additional, world-class hygiene and disinfection protocols for the protection of our valued guests and staff members. And you can be assured that when the governing agencies decide to open, we will be at the ready, better than ever, to ensure your complete safety when providing you first-class vacation experiences. Thank you for sharing with us your marvelous comments and glowing photos. We look forward to having you return to us when the time is appropriate, and in the meantime, we place ourselves at your service for all your future vacation needs.

We loved our stay at Mar Del Cabo! This is the perfect place for people, like us, who don't like the idea of giant, all-inclusive resorts and prefer a small, boutique hotel vibe. The staff is so warm and attentive and the room was very large and comfortable, with a lovely view of the beach. The restaurant is great and we spent every morning having delicious breakfast and watching the whales breach out in the ocean. Idyllic. Uber is very inexpensive, so this is a great location to make your home base and then Uber to adventures in San Jose or Cabo San Lucas. The flowers are so pretty you will feel like you are coming home to paradise.

As director of Mar del Cabo, I am highly pleased that our style and ambiance combined perfectly with your preference for laidback and relaxing properties. There truly is no better feeling than waking up and listening to the sounds of the waves and the playful gulls welcoming in the day, all of which is a significant contrast to the "giant, all-inclusive resorts" that you wish to avoid. And add to your early morning senses, the sight of clear blue skies, vivid bougainvilleas, and ornate tiling, and you will know at first glance that you are where you always wanted to be: on this side of vacation paradise. Thank you for sharing with the world your marvelous descriptions of Mar del Cabo and all that it provided you. We look forward to making you stay a tradition complete with your favorite spots in our pool and beach. Until then, we continue to place ourselves at your service for all your future vacation needs. Thank you! GERARDO VELA DIRECTOR GENERAL HOTEL MAR DEL CABO

This was our second visit to Mar del Cabo, but the first during the Pandemic. The Covid procedures were flawless from sanitized rooms to luggage wipe down on arrival. All staff were masked and wore face shields. Pool chaises, beach chaises and tables in the restaurant were spaced apart. So from the first day we felt safe.
But the real treat of this hotel is its quaint intimacy and the great staff. Rooms are serviced every day without having to make a request, the servers are always there for your cocktail order on the beach or a lunch at the pool. Breakfast is lovely and the flora beautiful. It feels more like your private villa. The rooms are spacious, nice linen and towels and a great shower. The added benefit of being able to dine next door at their five star all inclusive sister property was a great bonus, especially during the Pandemic when eating in town wasn’t an option for us.

When the worst thing you can say about a hotel is that you wished there were a couple more hooks in the bathroom, you know it’s a gem.

Thanks to diligence and luck we finalized our vaccinations four days before departure. In February my wife and I arrived on a half-full jet to San Juan del Cabo. We picked up a car and drove to the lovely Hotel Mar del Cabo. They were very, very happy to see us. The view from the open-air lobby was sensational; the pictures are accurate.

Throughout our stay, we maintained the Covid uniform, and the excellent hotel and restaurant staff were diligent in their precautions, as well. That complemented the first-class service delivered by all.

As we first descended the staircase to our room, we passed extravagant bougainvilleas in full bloom adorning cascading, brilliant white rooms and suites with lovely balconies. The steps and walls boasted liberal garnishes of blue and yellow Mexican tiles. We didn't pass a soul on the way down, and the pool, restaurant and beach, visible from our room, were all deserted. This was the case for most of our visit, and it was a sobering reality check.
The hotel was built in the ‘80s in an arroyo that descends through sand and granite landscape, from a ridge down to the sea. Instead of filling the arroyo, architects retained many of the rock formations, incorporating them into the structure of the building, and accommodating the design to the topography. The result is delightful.
Our suite was clean, comfortable and spacious. There was even a cheery Mexican elephant (see photo), bearing a bouquet of bougainvilleas, to welcome us. The room had a kitchen (not used), a ceiling fan and a/c. It overlooked the pool, the Encanto restaurant where we dined many mornings and evenings, and the beach.
Sunrises and sunsets were often spectacular (see photo). The setting was so exceptional that we felt no pressing reason to leave the hotel, though we still did our share of exploring..
There are many massive chrome, glass and concrete palaces lining these beaches, and if you could somehow pick up many of them, they could be dropped with equal effect in Shanghai, New York or Abu Dhabi. Unlike these, Mar del Cabo has a genuine sense of place, and we loved that.
What a beautiful way to spend a long week! We’d go back in a heartbeat…Once you get your vaccine, I can’t suggest a more inviting and deserving place to decompress…I hope their long winter, like ours, is beginning to turn into a better day.

First of all, allow me to thank you for sharing with us, and the world, your wonderful thoughts on Mar del Cabo. Your words pass along a genuine message that you couldn't have chosen any wiser when looking for your "deserving place to decompress." In reading your detailed review (twice), it's clear that you found a fulfilling sense of freedom and peace of mind right from the time of your arrival. From there, the colors, curves, landscaping, and nostalgia all combined to lift you to another place and time, all of which made you feel refreshingly detached from your day-to-day routine back home. Thank you so much for your well-wishes for the future. I am excited to say that our forecast is looking more optimistic every day, and with your fabulous review, we hope to have more guests coming in search of that balanced sense of contentment that you so nicely found. Until next time, we wish you and your loved ones all the best for a healthy and prosperous year and continue to place ourselves at your service. Take care, GERARDO VELA DIRECTOR GENERAL MAR DEL CABO

For those that don’t want to enjoy their vacation in accommodations of 100 - 300 plus room hotels, this is the place for you. This Lovely Botique Hotel of only 48 NS Suites is perfect. The staff is exceptionally professional and accommodating. Families be warned no children allowed under 12, which I feel very fair for those of us that prefer a smaller more relating environment.
You literally don’t have to leave as their free breakfast of fruit, juice, granola, yogurt, choice of juice (ask for the green mix) and coffee is delicious. The restaurant is open from noon until 10p for lunch/dinner and chef Mario has created a menu that your tastebuds will dance to.
We DEFINITELY will be returning. Thank you Paola, front desk concierge, for all your kindness & help. Thank you waiters Andres, Christian & Sergio for attending to all our needs and enjoyable conversations. And chef Mario for delectable meals!
We will miss you all,
Denise & Chris

We absolutely loved our experience at Mar del Cabo! We originally booked a partial ocean suitet, but upon reading reviews, we decided to go for the upgrade since we rarely get away and we were so thrilled we did. We had Room 50 which was very close to the restaurant and beach and the location was perfect. This hotel is spotless, it is so clean. They were constantly cleaning everything, including the millions of flowers that would fall into the pool (but you would never know it!). Maid service, phenomenal. Twice a day. The pool was a really nice temperature, we didn't swim in it very much but it was refreshing when we did. We spent most of our days relaxing on the (free) daybed and the almost empty beach front. You are sandwiched between Garza Blanca and Grand Velas, which are two really nice resorts as well. I highly recommend taking advantage of the fact that you can get a 20% discount at Grand Velas, and you should at least plan to eat one meal there. That resort is unreal as well, food phenomenal. We ate at the French and Italian and enjoyed both very much. However, Encanto, the restaurant at Mar Del Cabo was also excellent. We had breakfast, lunch and some dinner there as well and everything was top notch. The shrimp tacos, nachos with chicken and all the ceviches were our favorites. The front desk staff was very knowledgable and friendly and made us quick reservations whenever we asked. We never had to wait for anything longer than a few minutes. This isn't exactly a "party" resort, but you can always head into the city for that. We loved the quiet and relaxing nature of the hotel and we would go back in a heart beat! The grounds are so lovely and make you feel like you are in a Spanish/Greek resort in Europe! My husband and I agreed, it was one of our favorite trips together of all time.

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'.

Our family of 5 (2 adults & 3 teen boys) just returned from 6 glorious days at Mar Del Cabo. We stayed in the penthouse, which became our Mexican home away from home. It had a spacious patio that overlooked the incredible view. The interior had a comfortable living area and bedrooms that were tastefully decorated and impeccably clean. The lovely outdoor restaurant was steps away from our room, and we also enjoyed several meals at their extravagant sister hotel (a 5 minute walk) Grand Velas, a stunning large resort. As guests of Mar Del Cabo, we enjoyed a 20% discount at their restaurants.

We’re grateful for the staff at Mar Del Cabo who could not have been more kind or accommodating. We especially want to thank Paola, Giovanny, Andres & Favian for making our stay so enjoyable.

The only disappointment was that I thought there was a swimmable beach at this hotel, which I wanted for 3 teen boys. With a beach as gorgeous as this was, I was surprised that swimming is not allowed due to rocks and riptide.

That said, we had no regrets with a charming hotel, beach views for miles and so many family activities in San Jose Del Cabo. We would highly recommend Mar Del Cabo. It was hard to say goodbye.
