Hotel Mar de Cortez

Why it made the list

One of the first hotels built in Cabo San Lucas in the early 1970s, Mar de Cortez retains a fiercely loyal clientele thanks to its low rates, personal service, and central downtown location (it’s right around the corner from Cabo Wabo Cantina). The poolside scene is another selling point, with a nearby bar and restaurant for refreshments.

Siesta Suites

Why it made the list

The penthouse at Siesta Suites is the best deal in Cabo San Lucas: a rooftop suite with an enormous private terrace with wraparound city views for under $100 U.S. per night. Happy hour gatherings at the patio bar promote camaraderie between guests, and the Italian restaurant downstairs, Salvatore’s, is a locals’ favorite famed for its gargantuan portion sizes.

Hotel Seven Crown Malecón

Why it made the list

Sleek and chic, with gorgeous balcony views of the malecón and the bay beyond, this Seven Crown property qualifies as one of the region’s best bargains. A newly renovated rooftop restaurant only adds to the allure, as do protected parking spots in one of the capital city’s most notoriously difficult parking areas. There is no pool, but Seven Crown Centro a few blocks away provides that and other amenities, only minus the spectacular views.

The Bungalows Hotel

Why it made the list

The Bungalows may be a bit off-the-beaten-path, but it more than makes up for the short walk to the downtown area of Cabo San Lucas with affordable prices and a lovely familial atmosphere. The breakfast is the best in town, and comes complete with hugs from the staff. Pool facing rooms feature handcrafted furnishings and regional artworks.

Hotel Arte Museo Yeneka

Why it made the list

How cheap are the rates at Yeneka? That’s largely up to guests, as the staff is happy to negotiate. Just look for the large horse sculpture on a trailer out front, which is a signpost as well as a clue to the hotel’s artsy, bohemian sensibility. The downtown La Paz location could hardly be better. It’s about two blocks from the main plaza, and less than three from the malecón. Rooms are no frills, but do have air-conditioning and private bathrooms.

Cabo Inn

Why it made the list

Cabo Inn has an interesting history: during the 1950s, its building housed one of the first brothels in Cabo San Lucas. Today, it’s a popular choice among young international travelers, who appreciate its colorful atmosphere, downtown setting, and low nightly rates. The owner sometimes invites interested guests on early morning surfing expeditions.

Solmar Resort

Why it made the list

Grupo Solmar has become one of the premier resort brands in Los Cabos, and it all started with this small property, opened in 1974 by the former manager of the local cannery. The Pacific Coast locale is gorgeous, and although swimming in the ocean is not allowed to hazardous currents, two swimming pools and a beachfront area for nightly theme parties provide plenty of tropical ambiance.
