A few blocks from the town center, Casa Pablito Bed and Breakfast Hotel (Hidalgo and Ortega, tel. 624/143-1971, toll-free U.S. tel. 866/444-1139, www.casapablitoloscabos.com , US$90) was originally built to house employees of the Club Cascadas resort. A few years back, the building was converted into a traditional Mexican hacienda-style inn with 14 suites set around a pool and palapa-shaded breakfast area. Rooms have either one queen or two twin beds, plus kitchenettes, air-conditioning, and cable TV. This location will work for you if you don’t mind a fairly long walk to most of the shops and restaurants downtown.
Another place that’s removed from most of the action downtown is The Bungalows Breakfast Inn (Dorado and Lienzo Charro, tel. 624/143-5035, toll-free U.S. tel. 888/424-2226, www.cabobungalows.com , US$95–175), a good option for small groups or any travelers who like to stay off the beaten path. Its eight newly painted suites have separate sleeping areas, air-conditioning, kitchenettes, and TVs. A honeymoon suite has its own terrace with city views. Six two-bedroom bungalows can accommodate 4–6 guests each. There’s no smoking, inside or out. The small but nicely designed grounds hold a swimming pool, hot tub, and BBQ. Full breakfast is a treat to start the day. Guests here unanimously praise owner Eric for his personal service and attention to detail.
About one and a half kilometers east of Cabo San Lucas and 800 meters above Mexico 1, Casa Contenta (tel. 624/143-6038, www.cabocasacontenta.com , US$160–195/day or US$1,050–1,300/week) has five air-conditioned rooms with private baths in a three-story home with a swimming pool and wireless Internet throughout. Take a yoga class, book a spa treatment, or simply enjoy the view of Land’s End on the rooftop terrace. There’s a three-night minimum.
