The Hotelito in the Press


"A seaside town bathed by the sparkling turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortés, La Paz has little truck with tourism of either the low or high sort. Of its handful of hotels, only the modest CostaBaja Resort & Spa is at all comme il faut. I enjoyed the sultry small-town atmosphere of its seaside promenade, the Malecón, where townsfolk parade in the cool of the evening before repairing to a taqueria for a Pacifico beer. La Paz makes an ideal base for whale-watching expeditions, for swimming with whale sharks – a colony of these gentle giants lives just out in the bay – or for lazy days on the beaches of Tecolote and Balandra, two of Mexico’s loveliest, blessed with tranquil waters of a Caribbean hue."

TripAdvisor Guest Testimonials

" Everything about this place was brilliant..... the amazingly comfortable beds"

"A tiny treasure"

"What a quality service"

"Unpretentious comfort in Paradise"

- We stayed at The Hotelito based on the recommendations of other users of this site. The place deserves all of the accolades other writers have offered. The attention to design is stunning. If you want to stay for a few days in a place that belongs in photo shoots, this is it. Yet, it is very comfortable. It is secluded from town but only minutes away, really. We came during the Todos Santos Film Festival, which we would recommend and were pleasantly surprised to see that the film stars attending the Festival were staying at Hotelito, too.

- Perfect for a relaxing, low key stay. I loved the modern Mexican style. Rooms are sufficiently large, comfy bed, roomy shower and bath area. Pool area is very attractive.

- I just returned from an amazing trip to Todos Santos and the Hotelito was a major contributor to my memorable stay in this great town. The rooms were large, stylish and perfectly appointed with great beds and tons of windows and light. Each room had a large semi-private courtyard with a comfy hammock and lounge chairs.

- We found Hotelito on Trip Advisor, and were very pleased with everything. The room was very comfortable, quiet, and the breakfast was made to our order. The beach is so close you can walk to it, and although we didn't see whales, we enjoyed being on the beach all by ourselves. We also appreciated the restaurant tips we received, and directions to the fishermen's beach where we watched them take off in skiffs in the early morning, and returned later after lunch to see the catch. What fun!

- The Hotelito is a fabulous location for a relaxing break, it really felt like we were staying with friends. Everything about this place was brilliant..... the staff, the breakfasts, the ama- zingly comfortable beds, the big rooms, the cute dogs (especially Luna the puppy) and all at an unbelievably good price. All the staff went out of their way to help with anything we needed..... beach umbrellas and chairs, advise on restaurants, surf lessons and beaches....and even a guided walk along the cliff tops followed by a great lunch. We'll definitely be back again.

- My family and I had an amazing experience at the Hotelito for our destination wedding in Todos Santos. Jenny and her staff were friendly, generous, and attentive to our every need--including taking care of my two elderly grandmothers and helping us set up excursions with to go whale-watching and hiking. The setting of the Hotelito is serene and so beautiful, and we felt perfectly relaxed and at home. Jenny designed the Hotelito to give you the utmost privacy and relaxation in a modern, unfussy style that is completely comfortable. I've been lucky to travel often, including to several high-end Mexican resorts, but the Hotelito is where I'll return to again and again. We had an absolutely magical time at the Hotelito and give it our highest recommendation.
The owner, Jenny has impressively designed a stunningly private and serene enclave for her lucky guests. Nestled on a quiet side of town near the beach, each bungalow like room is created to recharge and pamper its guests . Similar to the Hotel itself, Jenny creates a comfortable low key ambience through a mixture of thoughtful room ammenities, warm friendly staff members and her own dynamic approachable captivating personality. If you are looking for a gorgeous peaceful fun place to stay in Baja, you should look no further than this review.

- I first visited Todos Santos 20 years ago and was struck by how charming it was - although at that time still very very quiet with few hotels or restaurants. i always wanted to return but was worried that what i loved would be destroyed by over development. i needn't have worried. The Hotelito is everything that is right about how Todos Santos has developed. it's intimate, elegant and cool all at the same time. staying there, one feels close to being in one's own house. the beds and bedding are super comfortable, the rooms spacious and beautifully decorated. even though there to relax, it was great to have high speed wifi on tap. the hotel is walking distance from a spectacular beach for sunning/walking/riding/sunset watching (not swimming) and a short drive from some of the most gorgeous beaches i've ever been on. Jenny will happily help to arrange any number of activities - riding, massage, yoga, hiking etc etc - but one can be just as happy relaxing by her navy blue mosiac tiled salt water lap pool.
