Travel Blogs from Cabo San Lucas
Ok, so this is only our "planning" trip before our road trip from Kelowna to Cabo. But hey, with 19 pieces of luggage and the back seat of your Jeep, it still makes for an adventure.
Celina and I did manage to narrow down what we'd need in Cabo for 5 months into about 7 suitcases, but we did have a mad scramble at the Kelowna Airport to …
... mushrooms, and potato skins. Janene had tortilla soup which was as good looking to eat as it was tasty.
Back to our room the girls are bathed in their outdoor spa and into bed. We need to clear the fridge of any leftover alcohol so the kids teach us drinking games. 1 2 3 4 you need to be coordinated to play this one. Then we do fingers on the cup, not sure if it has a name but it is pretty funny. Rock ...
... 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 ...

After all the stress, and drama, of cleaning, packing, storing, moving, Cameron and I were happy to see all of our friends at a "see you soon" party that we had a bar called Eastburn. Nothing makes a girl feel more special than seeing all our family and friends, old and new, in one place. I couldn't be happier, or luckier, ...
... We asked how long we would be out there... "about 12 minutes" they replied. We quickly paid, followed the guy to the boat, and became the biggest American sucker tourists of the year.
To make a really long and really pathetic story short…
…we got in the boat alone, then 2 couples joined us… and then.. a family of
eight Mexicans joined us… and we barely had room to sit in the boat

Historical Traveler Reviews Siesta Suites Cabo San Lucas
This is a budget hotel and, like most such places, it has its pros and cons. The room consists of a living/kitchen area in front and bathroom and bedroom in back. The air conditioner is a noisy room unit and unfortunately it is placed at the front of the suite. Thus, the bedroom in back takes a very long time to cool town and is always considerably warmer than the front area. There is a small TV with no remote in the bedroom. I couldn't determine whether or not the room phone could be used for local calls since there were no instructions. The room was clean and quiet. The location in the heart of Cabo San Lucas is great - near the Marina and all the great nightlife. Overall, this place seems to be comparable and priced similarly to the other budget places that have gotten good reviews here and if you need the kitchen facilities then it becomes the best budget choice in Cabo San Lucas.
A great place for everyone
This hotel is a great place, walking distance to all the club/bars/resturants in Cabo. The beach is about a 15 min walk. It is clean and organized. My best friend and I felt safe and totally enjoyed our time. Juan who runs the front desk so sooo helpful! I also reccomend visiting the Jungle Bar which is about 3 blocks away, very nice people.
Where do I begin? The Siesta Suites was darling! Small property, very immaculate. Housekeeping services daily. The manager Juan, was very accomodating and helpful. The staff is friendly and kind. The rooms are perfectly sized, as well as super clean! The kitchenettes were stocked with plenty of utensils as well as pots and pans.
A magical little place
I have stayed at Siesta Suites 3 times this year. Each time I return home I immediatedly re-book. The hotel is a HAPPY place to stay. The rooms are great, the staff is amazing, you couldn't ask for a better location(close to the marina for fishing/scuba diving - really close to Cabo Wabo, Squid Roe, etc. for table dancing or ?) and the upgrades they're making look wonderful. Not to mention the UNBELIEVABLY fantastic room rates. I'm staying for 3 weeks coming up pretty soon ~~~ I can't wait! I even have a "floaty chair" for the pool this time. Look out Siesta Suites... here I come ~
Budget rates - quality accommadation
my wife and I have visited cabo on numerous occassions ,purely for the fishing. we both loved the "siesta suites" and found the accommodation to be of a high standard and very clean. it was perfectly situated for the marina,the staff could not be more freiendly. thoroughly recomended !
see you down there !
We went March 10-15 and it was wonderful. The location was perfect.
Close enough to the marina and downtown and quite enough to get away from the noise. It was cozy and comfortable. The restaurant downstairs was a perfect place to grab a nice meal before going out, or a nice place to grab a drink before an early evening. The staff was always helpful. For the ladies out there, remember to bring a hair-dryer if you need one. A great place to stay for such a resonable price. I would love to go back and stay again. Thanks for everything.
My girlfriend, Diane, and I spent two weeks in Cabo San Lucas from 7-22 Jan 04 and stayed at the Siesta Suites. We absolutely loved it. John, Jaun and all the staff were fabulous. John freely offered advice on restuarants, where to catch the beautiful sunsets and the best ways to take in a tour of El Arco and Land's End as well as other activities. The Suites are located perfectly right in the middle of town making all things close enough to walk to. The rooms are very clean, very quiet and a joy to come back to after a day of sun, shrimp and margaritas. There is a nice social pool to cool off in and an area on the second floor landing with a barbecue (which is a nice area to catch some mid-afternoon sun) and some additional lawn chairs and a table. Our overall experience at the Siesta Suites was outstanding and contributed greatly to making our holiday fantastic.
My fiance had been to Cabo many times and always stays at Siesta Suites. This was my first time to Cabo and, I must admit, I was a little skeptical about staying in a small, downtown hotel v. staying in one of the bigger, beach front resorts. But after our experience at Siesta Suites, we will ALWAYS stay at Siesta Suites!! When you stay there, you feel like family - the staff makes you feel like they have known you for years and that you are a guest in their home - not just the guest of a hotel! The rooms are very clean, the beds are very comfortable, the adjacent restaurant, AJ's Hideaway, is superb, and you can't beat the location (its within an easy walking distance of the marina, excellent restaurants, and nightlife and about a 15 minute walk to the beach). I would highly recommend Siesta Suites!
I go back every year
Great location for downtown and Marina. They arrainged fishing trips for me and I caught a marlin both times. Must be good luck to stay here!!!Staff is friendly and rooms are clean. Overall it's the best cheaper hotel value in Cabo.
The Siesta Suites was very clean, the staff was friendly. They helped us with directions and other plans. During the week we spent in the area, we stayed at three different hotels, and the Siesta Suites was by far the best one for the money.
