A charming, friendly and expertly managed hotel in the colonial plaza of San José.

Unlike the large US-style resorts which fringe the beach a short taxi-ride away, Casa Natalia sits on the main square in the colonial centre of hilltop San Jose del Cabo. Again in contrast to the chain hotels, this unique property is still managed by its approachable proprietor Natalie, and the service is very friendly and professional.

The 19 rooms are located over three floors overlooking a relaxing courtyard with a crescent-shaped pool surrounded by loungers and tall palm trees. Most of the individually-themed rooms have a small private terrace, where you can take breakfast. They are decorated with hand-picked Mexican objets d’art and, alongside the fresh flowers which appear every day, bear witness to the feminine touch. The main attraction is Mi Cocina, the hotel’s renowned restaurant. 

The hotel can arrange excursions for you such as diving, kayaking and visits to the local `cactus world’ which apparently boasts the world’s most diverse collection of cacti.

Our Expert's Opinion

At the entrance, you'll find a small boutique shop with a variety of gift ideas and accessories carefully chosen by Natalie. The dining room is a delight, and I highly recommend trying the smoked tuna bruschettas if they are available on the menu. Even if you're not staying at the hotel, the restaurant is open to the public, but it's best to make a reservation.
