I had a one night stay booked here to house additional guests for one night. I am a local in Cabo. This hotel is only 4 blocks from my condo. I had an email confirmation for 1 room one night. When I checked out the clerk said I had 2 rooms. She had paperwork for 2 rooms

Thank you, Mollyd2, for your review. I can only imagine how frustrating this must have been for you when you checked in and once again, I sincerely apologize. As you know, apologies were emailed to you as soon as the error was discovered, since you had already left and that was our only contact with you. As I stated in my email to you, I mistakenly double booked your room in error and I genuinely apologized for the problem. You were never charged for two rooms and as soon as this error was confirmed, the second room was immediately cancelled. Our front desk manager also contacted you by email to advise you of the situation and apologize. Your situation was a clerical error which got out of hand. Clearly not a 'shady practice'. We want all of our guests to be happy and comfortable and when mistakes are made, we try to correct them immediately and in such a way that will satisfy all concerned. Thanks again, for taking the time to write.

We came back to this hotel after 18 years. We remembered how good the breakfast was and we were not disappointed. The staff is always so sweet and the food is DELICIOUS!!!! You can't beat the price either. 4 of us ate for $20. Don't miss out on this hidden gem.

Thank you,shouldbefall, for your review. And welcome back! Yes, we are getting raves about our El Cortez Restaurant and Bar menus and prices. And to think that in many cases breakfast is included in our rates. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, and we do hope it's not another 18 years before you return...

To be honest we didn't hang around the hotel at night although it looked like other guests did. It is so central, you are near lively bars and restaurants. Plus we felt totally safe in the area so were happy to be out of an evening. Breakfast is plentiful and cheap. If you want to hang around the hotel, there is a bar and seating areas where you could while away an evening. Very authentic, chilled place. We loved it.

We didn’t, and we didn’t miss it one bit.

We did not have a TV in the single King room. In April. The location is so close to restaurants and entertainment, we likely would never have watched it if it was in the room.

"upstairs balcony have a nice view of the property. less noisy. There are larger rooms for bigger families."
