Historical Traveler Reviews The Bungalows Hotel Cabo San Lucas
Best Place in Cabo
Great!!!! We loved this place!!! Breakfast is delicious!!! Especially the fresh watermelon juice! Close to town. The upper bungalows have thatched roofs, refrigerator, and AC.
No TIMESHARE'S for us
What a great place to stay! We discoverd the Bungalows on the web 6 months ago and made our reservations. The place was exactly as described, if not better, and the staff EXCEEDS an excellent rating!
You may have a walk to the beach, but you can relax without the annoyance of the timeshare salesmen or vendors! We, too, felt safe walking the side streets (even with Hurricane Marty passing thru Cabo the day before we arrived and the streets in disarray). Forget about those high-priced fancy hotels and stay at the Bungalows.

Great place for travelers off the beaten track
My wife and I and our 16 months old son were looking at a place to stay for our vacation to Cabo San Lucas. We saw all the positive reviews for the Bungalows Inn and decided to give it a shot.
We had a memorable experience at the Bungalows Inn. The innkeep Estella and the rest of the staff treated us like family providing us with advice on where to eat, what to do, even helping us with the airlines.
Each and every morning, an excellent gourmet breakfast was provided, from smoothies to fresh cut fruit, to fruit and nut waffles or poached eggs and salsa. It's just the right way to start the day and always something to look forward to.
We had a fun time at the inn which was a quiet place to retreat to after the end of the day. The bungalows were cozy and charming in a way that a resort was not.
Definitely a recommendation for travelers, not neccessary tourists, looking for adventure off the beaten track.
Home away from home
The Bungalows Breakfast Inn is a wonderful place to stay in Cabo San Lucas, especially for first timers.It has a wonderful ambiance and charm (Mexican tile, Palapa roofs, Palm trees etc.) Also yummy breakfasts and the whole place is immaculate (no bugs!). Innkeeper Estella is the best!!! Supported well by her crew including Perla and Eric. It felt like a home away from home! My husband and I, along with two other families all returned to stay at the Bungalows Inn during the same week, even though we all had reservations elsewhere. That's how much we all liked it!

A Tranquil Get- Away
The place we were suppose to stay at turned out to be much less than we had expected, so we turned up on the door step of the Bungalows Breakfast Inn with hopes of finding someplace safe & clean. We got much more than we could have even expected! The Bungalows Breakfast Inn in Cabo San Lucas was perfect. My husband and I enjoyed tranquility away from the crowded resorts, party-goers & time share pitches. Although we did venture out for occasional day trips for scenery, shopping, snorkeling & horseback riding we knew that we would come back to the quaint inn for a peaceful night's sleep & a gourmet breakfast the following morning. We stayed in a nice double room for most of our stay & moved up to a tree-house like suite on our final night, which made it all the harder to have to leave! I do have to say that the inn is a good 10 minute hilly walk from the main downtown area, but it can be a bonus... it allowed me to eat those scrumptious breakfasts without guilt. If you want the serenity and peace of a true vacation this is THE place to stay! 100 thank you's to Estella.
EVeryone loved the Bungalows
Along with quite a few friends and family, we stayed at the Bungalows for a few days. Estela and Perla made sure that everyone was happy, they went out of their way for us, were fun and interesting, extremely patient and helpful, and all of the other guests (at the pool) were considerate and very sweet. The rooms aren't fancy, but the whole place is very quaint. It was quiet, and our group spent a lot of time playing the pool and talking about the amazing breakfasts. The big hill to the B&B is a tough walk from down in the heat, but it was really fun to stay so close into town and also be secluded from all of the other tourists. Our group raved about the place and the staff, and are all recommending it to friends.
My husband and I stayed at The Bungalows Inn for our honeymoon, and we actually booked the lovely honeymoon suite. Other than a very loud and lively party from one of the adjacent houses that went on until the wee hours one night, it was quiet and just the place we needed for some R&R. Breakfast was fantastic the entire week we were there, and the staff was helpful and pleasant. There is also a video and book library for those days you just want to hang out. The room was kept scrupulously clean, though some mosquitos were lurking in the corners.
We also had a mild ant problem, but nothing that couldn't be taken care of easily. If you prefer more sophisticated digs, this won't be the place for you. But if you like being off the beaten track and sampling a bit of local life, I highly recommend The Bungalows.
Cabo's Best Kept Secret
When we decided to go to Cabo we debated whether we should stay at a resort or an inn. We chose The Bungalows partly for the breakfast menu on their website but also because we wanted to experience a Cabo as if we were locals, not tourists. Did we ever ! Our room was charming, and the staff so accomodating and friendly, but our favorite aspect of the inn was the breakfast. It was absolutely incredible! We ate there every morning and we were full until late afternoon. I don't think The Bungalows is the right choice for everyone (it's about a 10 minute walk to downtown/20 minutes to the beach) but it was exactly what we wanted. We felt safe walking to and from the inn at all hours of the night, and by staying somewhere a bit removed from the hustle and bustle of Cabo we got to experience and see things we probably wouldn't have had we stayed at a beachfront resort.
Won't Stay Anywhere Else
We first found The Bungalows by accident. The room we had booked over the internet at a hotel in town turned out to be a nightmare. I pulled out my guidebook, found the listing for The Bungalows, and decided to check to see if they had any rooms available on such short notice. I was told they did, so we drove over to take a look around. By this time it was dark and we'd been traveling for almost 12 hours. When we arrived we told Eric our story and he made us a fresh pot of coffee before showing us the available rooms. We knew the second he opened the door to the room that this was the place we'd stay and always come back to on future visits. At that time we had no idea that what we'd experienced in our first five minutes at The Bungalows was only a hint of what was to come over the course of the next few days.
The rooms are spacious, pretty, clean, and well cared for. The small refrigerators and bottled water in each room are nice conveniences. The pool is pretty and the atmosphere around it calm and relaxing. The inn is quiet and peaceful...you're never irritated by noisy neighbors, and you can hear water running from the fountains all day and evening. We find the location to be perfect...five minutes from town or the beach, but not so close as to be caught up in all the commotion.
Breakfast is included each morning and is absolutely delicious...I think that's what we miss the most when we leave and look forward to the most upon our return.
Aside from all of this, the service is amazing...something I have found I literally cannot pay for in the US. Estela, Jorge, and Eric go out of their way to meet any need you may have (like the coffee we were made upon our arrival, a breakfast brought up to our room on a morning we slept in too late to eat downstairs, etc.) in a way that is personalized, that makes you feel like you're leaving friends when you leave The Bungalows.
We have stayed at The Bungalows twice and are planning to stay there again on our next visit this spring. We don't think of staying anywhere else.
The Bungalows is Superb!
The Bungalows was a perfect choice for our recent 7-day vacation. The two-bedroom suite was spacious, comfortable and very clean. A lovely courtyard surrounds the swimming pool and provides a wonderful place to relax and cool off after a day at the beach. The included breakfast was a delicious treat each morning. Estela, Jorge and Eric made us feel like we were visiting old friends rather than staying in a hotel. I highly recommend this establishment!
