Small, cute place owned by a wonderful, feisty Swedish woman. Prices were very reasonable and Osa (the owner) has a large fund of knowledge having lived in San Jose for decades. It is just a bit outside the main part of San Jose in an area called La Playa, but it is easy to get into town on the Urbano...

I booked this on a whim and knew it was a little out of the way from San Jose but I wasn't disappointed. The owner, Åsa, and her business partner in crime, Flor, couldn't have been more accommodating. Swedish pancakes with homemade mango marmelade every so often for breakfast. Outdoor kitchen and grill (which I made good use of) roof...

Dear Pnevrin Thank you for your long stay and nice review. I am so glad that you liked it here and did not run away to other hotels.

I am so sorry I took so long to write this review. My husband and I traveled here with our 6-month old son and it was the perfect place for us to land for a few days before we explored more of Baja Sur with other family members. We don't like resorts, but were nervous traveling for the first time...

Wonderful base for exploring San Jose and only a ten minute walk down through the village to the beach. A longer walk around the marina, great place to admire some local sculptures, takes you to a quieter, swimmable beach at the El Ganzo beach club. Also walking distance to some local restaurants, bars and hotels. The bus stops outside and...

By staying just outside the tourista madness of the Los Cabos Zona Hotelas, we had a taste of real Mexico from day one of our stay. El Delfin Blanco sits just a few blocks up the hill from the marina named Puerto del la Playita, a fishing village on the eastern edge of Los Cabos. The lodging is in small...

Looking for quiet place near beach in La Playa to visit my brother and his family. As I look back, this met my expectations. I could walk to beach, bus to town and found the place clean and quiet. Not the typical crowd that you find at the ritzy hotel zone, but that was fine with me. Meet some friendly...

Dear txmper, thank you for your friendly five points on TripAdvisor. I agree with you that the outdoor stove has seen better days, it still works good enough for pancakes.

The big resorts are encroaching and change is coming to the town of La Playa, but Osa Franzen's little corner is as peaceful and charming as when I first visited 12 years ago. It's only a short walk to the dynamic beaches and it's an easy drive to the center of San Jose del Cabo where you'll find the traditional...

El Delfin Blanco is a lovely alternative to the usual Hotel estate. It's a wonderful way to deep in the real life of western Mexico, at the same time having all the comfort you need, knowing that Osa, the owner, is taking care of you. At El Delfin Blanco you can enjoy a garden with Mango trees and palms, bbq,...
