Cabo has its fair share of hotels that are past their prime, but the Bahia Hotel & Beach Club isn’t one of them. A top-to-toe renovation in 2010 saw to that, adding a sleek design, bang-up hotel restaurant, beach club access and chill vibe. In the heart of the Medano Beach district, the property has an enviable location just two blocks from Cabo’s only swimmable beach and easy access to a clutch of great bars and restaurants.
Bed & Bath
Guestrooms eschew the bold, brash colors that can be found in many Bahia hotels in favor of a neutral look and Mexi-chic design: polished cement floors, plush beds swathed in layers of white, hanging lanterns and dark wood furniture. Most rooms on the ground level have patios outfitted with hammocks. Spacious bathrooms have rain showers and luxe Teva and/or C.O. Bigelow amenities.
Outside by the pool, the scene is set for stylish lounging, from the daybeds and wooden recliners to the diaphanous swaying white curtains and swim-up palapa bar. Prefer to spend your time with sand between your toes? Head over to Medano Beach, where the hotel operates a concession at the Medano Beach Club. But perhaps the best feature is the excellent on-site restaurant, Bar Esquina, which puts a delish Baja twist on familiar Mediterranean flavors. For something more casual, an adjacent coffee shop serves tasty coffee made from beans grown in Chiapas and Oaxaca, plus quick-grab pastries, salads and sandwiches — perfect whether you want a low-key picnic on the beach or fuel for adventures in Cabo’s stunning desert landscape.
How to Get There
We stayed for some days at Bahia beach house and we were super happy with it. Very friendly staff, nice location, beautiful beach club, great food! The only thing to know is that it is not directly located at the beach and you will have no sea view - but it is in 2 minutes walking distance to the beach club! We will come back!
Bahia was the perfect home base for our stay in Cabo. We had 5 wewly renovated rooms all next to each other, throw in the swim up pool bar, super clean common areas and rooms, and friendly staff with great service. Not to mention on site Bar Esquina and across the street SUR Beach Club. Our group was there to do it all in a 4-6 day window. Owner Lee and staff have the scene dialed - Some of our jaunts included surfing, fishing, All terrain vehicle experience, sunset yacht cruise, snorkeling, SUPs, and private birthday dinners on the beach to name a few.. The vibe is epic - outdoors, adventurous, entrepreneurial type people that like to have a good time. Walk or cab to all the local bars if that's your thing.
Will be coming back in the near future for sure.
This hotel was selected in accordance to a destination wedding invite, which was took place in a neighboring town. My first time in Mexico!
-Wonderfully clean! Staff continuously keeps the grounds and the entire hotel sparkling.
-Great pool (although a tad small) with music (not too loud, just right)
-Excursions can be booked through concierge. Thank you JAZMINE for your great recommendations, your friendly demeanor and for booking our awesome tour which was definitely a highlight on our trip!
-SUR Beach House: there is a shuttle golf cart that takes you there, however it's a really short 2 min. walk. Shout out to MANNY, who made our days on the beach a pure pleasure! You gave us, and our whole group your undivided attention and best service ever. Loved the best view and private beach in the area!
-Jose from the Coffee Bar was amazing, polite, friendly and I appreciated his morning smile. Great service too! Good specialty coffee's and pastries.
-live music in the restaurant every evening!
-close proximity to restaurants and town
-although breakfast was included, there was inconsistency and confusion from the servers in the restaurant as to what it includes. It was like we were asking for a "special" request every morning, when it should of been treated as the norm.
-SUR Beach House: there is a service fee of $30US each day for a chair on the beach. (can be used in the form of drink and food purchases)
-current construction noise
Nice hotel in a good location. Best part of my stay was Julio the bartender. He was always on top of things. Never had to wait on drinks. We told him our names at the beginning of the trip and he remembered and called us by name the rest of the time we were there. My name is Peter and the next time I go back I’m sure Julio will say my name, remember what I drink and have it ready for me even if it’s a year from now!
My wife and I have been staying at Bahia for all our Cabo trips since we started visiting th area over the past 7 years. We have never stayed anywhere else because it is that good. We recently celebrated her 50th birthday at Bahia and brought family and friends with us. Pepe, the concierge, answered all our questions and had everything ready to go for us. We had a group of 6 traveling from all over the US and they made all of reservations for us. He handled all the birthday logistics including the birthday cards- they truly made it a great trip. The hotel always exceeds our expectations and be sure to go to SUR Beach House and enjoy the food and entertainment at Bar Esquina. A HIGH RECOMMEND!
