A truly sublime experience!Posted Apr 6, 2015
Location: It's a good location, up the hill, about 5 minutes drive from the Marina (15 mins walk). Safe, quiet.
We travel a lot and have been lucky enough to stay at some of the most luxurious hotels around the world - from The Westin Excelsior in Rome to The Udai Palace in Udaipur. Naturally, we were skeptical of putting up at a tiny B&B for our first trip to Cabo, but I was aching to try something small, authentic, with a personal touch. This charming little place put all our worries to rest the second we stepped in through that palatial gate. The front yard is huge, very tastefully done with hand picked art pieces, a burst of colors, mango trees and dozens of caged birds. The owners - Sochi and Gary, are the nicest, most accommodating hosts you'll ever meet. The place had a laid back pace to it. We booked the palapa room which is something I'd never experienced - a room with one missing wall! I went in April and it did get a wee bit chilly deep into the night and if you have a sweet tooth, those blood sucking mosquitoes might come looking for you :) Also, if you rent a palapa room, you'll have to deal with a bit of noise as the main road is nearby and the locals love to drive around with their music blasting through their speakers. The breakfast is handmade by Sochi and is quite a spread. Delicious to say the least. Overall, I would totally recommend this for at least a night or two.

Don't stay anywhere else!Posted Mar 31, 2015
Great, all around. Go for the suite with the jacuzzi. Location is perfect, Sochi and Gary are amazing! This is where you stay if you need an authentic reprieve from "spring break Cabo" but want still want to be able to access it at your "leisure" aka, after some tequila.

A Hidden ParadisePosted Mar 8, 2015
Pros: Everything from the peaceful surroundings, the comfortable room, the gracious hosts, and the amazing breakfasts.
Cons: Absolutely nothing.
Location: It is only a 10 minute walk to the marina.
I had to make a quick business trip to Cabo. I ran across El Nido on Expedia and was impressed by the reviews. The experience was amazing. This small, hidden Bed and Breakfast offered a calming, relaxing trip that should have been hectic. The breakfasts were top quality. The patio, gardens, and birds made this place a peaceful refuge. I stayed in a first level room that was traditionally Mexican and very comfortable. I was shown some of the open air second floor rooms. They were so unique and beautiful. On my next trip, I will request one of these. I had recently had knee surgery and didn't feel comfortable walking on the uneven sidewalks to the marina market to get gifts for my students. They arranged to have a friend of theirs take me to the market and shop with me for the afternoon. I have traveled to Cabo many times over the past 15 years and am so glad that I discovered El Nido.

Lovely Boutique Hotel with a Local FlairPosted Mar 1, 2015 on Hotels
We didn't want to be in a typical resort and wanted something with a more local flavor, and El Nido was perfect for us. We booked the room with the partial palapa and enjoyed star gazing every night. Our private Jacuzzi was a bonus and gave us the relaxation we were looking for. The location is a few minutes walk to the Marina and very convenient. Gary and Sochi are wonderful hosts who made our stay very comfortable. We would stay with them again.

Delightful Mexican HaciendaPosted Jan 26, 2015
Hosts Gary and Sochi were friendly and welcoming. Sochi's breakfasts of authentic Mexican egg dishes with fresh guacamole and salsa were delicious. Open air palapa room was beautifully decorated and a unique and comfortable experience. Only a 10 minute walk to the marina. Try El Nido if you want a change from the big resort hotels.

Beautiful, authentic Mexican B & B.Posted Jan 7, 2015
We loved our time at El Nido. Our one and only negative, if you can call it that is that at night, after traveling 12 hours, it's not initially easy to find. Once you get your bearings, it's located close to just about Everything. We walked often. The room, staff, decor, owners are all superb. Wonderful breakfast. Beautiful communal deck with jacuzzi and lounge area. We would readily stay at El Nido again. Gary and Sochi are friendly, warm and make you feel like you've landed in a little piece of American heaven.

Sunshine and StarlightPosted Jan 5, 2015
Location: Short walk to restaurants, shops and the marina.
Palapa room open to the flowers and tree tops and the stars at night. Gentle breezes and comfortable surroundings. Excellent care from the staff and owners. A great place to experience a true Mexican/Cabo experience.
