... stopped (or were stopped) by a handsome waiter who had entertained us a few days ago at lunch.....he wanted to make Erin & I a 'Sexy lady' coffee -(we were easy targets after a couple of Margarita's)....these he prepared tableside by heating our glasses under naked flame and flambéing brandy and Bayleys with icecream- OH gee ...delicious.

... San Lucas where bars and restaurants, a marina, shops and malls and more await. Tonight, we dine, at my insistence, at Edith's. Two lunches have already been enjoyed at the dangerous "Office" on the beach where tequila threatens.
One day perhaps, Marilee will live here year round. I could live in Cabo; maybe not year round but certainly all winter long. So could you. Thank you, Marilee; from all of us. Your generosity is remarkable.
... of the time. Between each floor are two sets of stairs which have some type of art work showcased there. The art work is beautiful so I usually take pictures of it.
At the end of the day, after having something to eat with Joanne, I tend to make it back to the track where I take in the sunset. I love watching and taking pictures of sunsets which you will notice from all the pictures of them that I shared on our blog.
... you alone is to put in ear buds and list to tunes. However, even that does not deter the most aggressive people from wanting to talk or tell me something that I could not careless about.
All in all, the first full day was a success I meet a lot of interesting people. I was floored when I meet a guy who had been on vacation for four weeks. He was a DCer, I don't recall what he did for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mar de Cortez Cabo San Lucas
The Mardi is great!
Right downtown Cabo. Very cheap, short walk to the beach, restaurants and shopping down the street. Staff is very friendly and nice.If you not looking for a 'resort', then the Mardi is perfect.Rooms are very basic, but clean(no mini-bars, TV's, or telephones). http://www.#################
Cheap,clean,safe,close to everything!
a block from the beach, close to great restaurants, very clean, cheap, cheap, cheap! a hidden gem!
Great place to stay while in Cabo
Very nice clean hotel. Staff are friendly and helpful. Great location, close to all activities and a walk away from the beaches. I would definately recommend this hotel to my friends.
Relaxed and loved it
what a deal, the french toast is to die for.. would recommend to anyone
Nothing fancy, but neat and clean, and conveniently located - - no taxi required. On site restaurant is excellent.
This hotel is the best value in Cabo - period!
Perhaps my thoughts are a bit skewed, since the Mar De Cortez is the only place I have ever stayed in Cabo (3 times). But I honestly don't feel the need to look for anyplace else, unless I'm planning a particularly romantic trip. The place can be summed up with three words, "Plain, clean, value". There is some liveliness to the pool, the restraunt is definately tasty, the bar is quite small. The "Mar de" is close to everything except the beach, which requires walking to the Plaza Las Gloria and getting a water taxi, or settling in for a 30 minute walk.One word of caution: there is an "adult establishment" diagonal across the street. When walking the street after dark, don't be suprised to be propositioned occasionally. Consider it part of the flavor of being in Mexico.If you want a luxurious resort right on the beach, this is not the place. But if you want to be in the midst of the dancing, dining, and shopping of Cabo, Mar De Cortez seems to be a good bet.
My favorite !
I have been going for 10 years and I love this hotel ! I have stayed at the other resort hotels in Cabo for 3 times the price and much prefer this one. It is my home at least 3 times a year. Spencers restaurant in the hotel is the best !
Great room for the price..
I stayed in the Hotel Mar de Cortez and the room was very clean and comfortable. There are no tv's or phones in the room. The food in the restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. The staff was also very helpful.
Cheap and great
I stayed there in June of 2002 and it was awsome. Very inexpensive. The food was good, it was close to everything, it had a great pool, and the rooms were nice. It wasn't the ritz, but it was great for the price. I would definately recommend it.
Best Kept Secret in Cabo
I went to the Mar de Cortez in December and absolutely loved it! They just opened some new rooms. The food was great. And I especially loved the fact that it has a huge swimming pool. It is within an easy walk of the Marina. No need to get a car. In fact, you can save a lot of money. Rather than spending around $500/night at the beach, stay at the Mar de Cortez for about $50/night. Their new website describes it very well. Go to www.mardecortez.com and see for yourself! As a single woman, I felt perfectly safe there.
