We were on a cruise and went to the town of Todos Santos with relatives. It's an hour or so away from Cabo. We stopped for Margaritas and appetizers at the hotel. Both were excellent. There was a pottery making for the Hotel.

Never been to Todo Santos and wasn't sure what to expect but found this Hotel to be the perfect launch to our girls trip. We ditched our second day plans just to wade in the pool and enjoy beers in the sun. The decor is bright, funky and cool with an amazing gift shop where I purchased lots of great,...

This seems like an authentic Mexican Hotel- but unfortunately it's not very comfortable. Our bed was hard as a rock, we were woken up early with construction in room next to us, and water stopped working for a few hours one day. For the money, I don't feel like this place was worth it. I would not stay here again....

We stopped into just out of curiosity. We found a nice restaurant with a great bar. The drinks were reasonably priced and not watered down. There's a great gift shop attached. You have to try the jalapeño margarita!

Don't bother trying to argue this isn't the Hotel California from the Eagles song. They've heard it all before. Anyway it's a quaint hotel in a quaint town, with a great bar and great food. Short stays only in my opinion because, unless you're visiting friends, there's just not much to do in town (again, in my opinion).

We made our way up the coast from Cabos San Lucas to see the famed hotel and have a drink at their bar. The bartenders here know exactly what they are doing. The margaritas we made with limes squeezed right before making them. They had a variety, so you're sure to find one you like. Hit up the little shop...

We drove the short trip (45 minutes) from Cabo San Lucas to Todos Santos to explore the coast and visit the tiny town. Probably the number 1 tourist attraction there is the Hotel California. We hand breakfast on the charming outdoor patio. Without question, I had the best French toast I have ever eaten there. The bread is made in...

So it's as you would expect in Mexico...totally touristy. I have to say I was surprised how small the actual town is. We drove from Cabo for an hour to visit. Not much to see on a Sunday, seemed almost deserted! So the nacho's at the Hotel California were really good!! I would have them again, and I recommend them...

No matter if you believe this is or is not the inspiration for the Eagles hit single, this place can stand on its own by charm alone. We always walk around, take in the ambiance, and buy shirts and caps for gift giving. Very cool. Personally, we believe this is the song's true inspiration. It's just so perfect.
