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
My husband and I visited the Bahia in February and enjoyed it so much, we went back in August with friends. We were not disappointed! It was just as wonderful this time, if not better! The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the staff is just wonderful, especially Jasmin! We had met her on our last visit and she was so nice and attentive. This time it was like seeing an old friend. She was our "go to" person for anything we needed. We also had a wonderful complimentary continental breakfast in the open air dining room every morning. Just delicious! We did find the Beach Club and restaurant a little pricey, but since Medano Beach is right down the hill, there were many bars and restaurants to keep us happily satisfied! Jasmin, we will look forward to seeing you again because we will definitely be back!
Arrived around 1pm and was greeted with drinks and early check in. Jazmin orchestrated a welcome anniversary treat and our room was great. Comfy queen in a great room with a balcony overlooking the pool from the second floor. Room has nice large shower and decent space for bags. We hit the gym at the hotel right away for a little while. 3 rooms with cardio, weights, exercise accessories, and mats for a variety of activities. They had towels and water available. We went down to Sur for the afternoon and Jazmin organized a reservation for beach chairs for us. Had drinks and food all of which were good. There was a suggested $35pp spend for Sur but I think our bill only came to about $60 and it was fine. Enjoyed the pool in the afternoon which was relatively empty. Took advange of the 2x1 drinks that were quite good. Had a pre dinner drink in Esquina but did not eat there. Do not pass on the coffee and delicious pastry included in your room rate. The croissant was literally one of the best we've had. Day 2 consisted of pool relaxing and for 2-3 hours not another guest was there with us- it was amazing! When we checked out the following day, the nice bellman watched our stuff while we got lunch before our pickup. Overall the hotel was great-picturesque and home while being tropical and really relaxing. Definitely recommend as it's a great location and excellent service. All the staff we encountered were friendly. If they could make one improvement it would be to possibly have a better option to get water. We drank a TON and we had to go to the OXXO 2-3 times to get reasonably priced gallons of water. It exceeded my expectations for sure.
My wife and I have been coming to Cabo since 1987 and had stay at the Bahia Hotel on our first time in Cabo. This was way before the casa dorado resort was built, there the Bahia had a total unobstructed view of the bay. Over the years we noticed that the Bahia was remodeling and finally decided to stay there again just for old times sake. We booked a four night stay through Trivago website and upon arriving at the hotel, we were informed that our reservation had been cancelled. Apparently the company Trivago booked through, Hotels for Everyone, went out of business and cancelled all their bookings. We were not informed about it. Anyway, the Bahia had available room, gave us a discount from the regular rate, and rescued us from being “homeless”. What a blessing the staff was to us. Everyone from kitchen staff, front desk, pool attendants, etc treated us as family. Everyone seem to enjoy their jobs and wanted us to be in need of nothing. We had a great stay even though a storm caused it to rain two of our 4 night stay. Loved everything about the hotel and the Sur beach house too.
