“Nice view and breeze”
There was a nice view and a great breeze in the eagles nest. But it was not a great stay. The huge cockroaches were a bummer at night. The people who manage the place were very nice but the Eco palapas look like they have seen better days. My husband and daughter and I have been traveling in baja dozens of times. We have stayed of the grid and camped on the beach. We were disappointed in the cost of 78.00 a night plus 19% tax for the accamodations we recieved. The refrigerator did not work but the freezer did "thankfully" the master bed was nice but the two twins were dirty. I loved the geckos and the iguana that lives in the roof but like I said before the huge roaches were disgusting. The owner was not apologetic but the manager was and gave us a small discount. About 19% . I would recommend staying at Reinhardt in Cabo pulmo. Because Eco palapa in in Los Barracas not cabo pulmo and his place is super clean as well as a little less expensive to get so much more. One more thing this is not private it is communal living. That is something that should be mentioned...

Thanks for joining us here and we are happy you had a good time. We did recognize the Palmetto bug population had exploded to epidemic numbers at the time of your stay. I'm thankful to our managers who got all over this problem immediately using bug boxes and spraying inside & out around the floors and exterior walls with a safe but very effective "Home Defense" product found at HD that ended the problem. It is rare but populations in Baja and nature in general can sometimes explode in numbers or die off. We have seen this here with moths, toads, house flies and now the Palmetto bug. Guests come here to live closer to Mother Nature in her natural state and all natural surroundings. After all it would be pretty sterile and boring planet if mother nature never showed up. Here you enjoyed a white sand beachfront, indoor/outdoor living, 360 views, all natural surroundings yet suggested a traditional 5th row rental unit in the village with solid walls, closed windows, fans etc. as a better choice for you, which I understand. Being Off the Grid and on solar power we use propane refrigerators. They are not as strong as electric technology and users need to realize this perimeter to stay satisfied, especially in the warm months. Having a family work out of one with the door open a lot of the time will bring down efficiency. Upon arrival filling the refrigerator especially with lots of liquids and dense food will bring the temp up as will putting liquids in the freezer. Its the freezer that also cools the entire unit. They do take monitoring and some maintenance to stay at their best performance which we regularly attend to. Pappagallo, Sunset and Eagles' Nest are available for rent along with a couple of Cabanas, sharing a bathhouse & kitchen, that are usually for overflow from a primary rental. We are attentive to guests and share some good times as well as guests meeting and enjoying new friends at this small resort on a great big beach but don't understand the "communal living" comment.
“Magical Beachfront Friendly accommodation”
My experience at Cabo Pulmo Eco Palapa was excellent in all regards. The accommodation in the Eagle's Nest was spacious, comfortable and homey. The proprietor was especially welcoming and friendly - providing meal assistance, snorkeling, hiking, margaritas, yoga, and red moon celebration and good conversation. Highly recommended!
“Perfect, simple, nothing that you dont need and everything you d”
My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of staying here the end of January, 2014 for 3 nights. I will start by saying that Bill's accommodations are beach-hut rustic with all the modern conveniences you need to have an excellent self-sufficient adventure vacation. Which is exactly what we were looking for. There was running water (hot and cold) flushing toilets, electrical outlets... just make sure to use them before the sun goes down as they are solar! Candlelight and headlamps at night. We stayed here before we met up with friends down in the "resort" madness of Cabo. This was not that at all - and it was a relief. We rented a jeep and spent our days driving the dirt roads to secluded beaches snorkeling in the endless reefs, seeing wildlife - whales, dolphins, brilliant tropical fish. Buying chorizo and avocados from the local Super Mini about 30 minutes away. I will say that the walls are thatched, critters do get in and sounds are heard. We enjoy getting closer to nature and plan to go back. Thanks Bill for a great intro to Baja.
Homey, comfortable lodgings in a breathtakingly beautiful place (we stayed in the Eagle's Nest). Wonderful to fall asleep to sounds of the wind and to wake to views of the beach. We were wary of cockroaches/geckos at first, but came to love the sound of the geckos serenading us from the rafters :) Thanks to Bill for a great stay and great advice

“Fantastic away-from-it-all experience”
Four of us from England enjoyed a wonderful stay with Bill in the Eagle's Nest. For anyone who appreciates nature in a remote location this is a great place. Views of the surf crashing into the sand and the mountains behind are all around you as you sit in the very comfortable accommodation with panoramic windows all around three sides. Bill has equipped the place with good taste, combining a feeling of Robinson Crusoe with the modern traveller. Great hot water in the showers, powered by solar panels. Our moonlit walk on the beach looking for sea turtles was a beautiful experience; as was wandering through the bush looking at the bird life. Many thanks Bill andrew, Christine, Owen Hind and Peter Osborn

“Best, Rustic, Low Key get away on the Eastcape”
My wife and I spent 3 nights in the "Eagle's Nest". We enjoyed the solitude of the beautiful beach, while having some of the best shore fishing ever. Bill, the owner was one of the most hospitable host's and we enjoyed his conversations and all his knowledge of the area. The eco palapa will definately become an annual stop for us on our adventures of the Eastcape. The accomadations were exactly the type we were looking for and at the most reasonable rate.
“Reasonably Priced, Low Key, Off the Grid adventure”
My wife and I were looking for somewhere off the beaten path to get away from it all for our honeymoon. Cabo Pulmo Eco-palapas was just what the doctor ordered and exceeded all of our expectations. The location is great, right alongside the pristine beach with turquoise water that stretches for miles. We rarely came across another soul during our numerous long walks up and down the beach. We also saw a good amount of wildlife, (birds, marine life, reptiles, amphibians and insects) on our walks. We stayed in "The Eagle's Nest" which I would recommend, as it's very cozy and is perched on the second story with a great 360 degree view. The room is accommodated with everything you need, a refrigerator/ freezer, propane range, and sink in the kitchen; a bathroom with toilet, sink and shower; and a queen size bed in the bedroom. We cooked breakfast every morning and dinner with margaritas every night. Bill and his dog Bay are great hosts and great company for dinner. Bill is very knowledgeable about nearby things to see and do. We drove out to have a dip in some hot springs he recommended and had a blast. Our stay here was very economical and the prices can't be beat. We would definitely stay again if we had the chance. I would absolutely recommend Cabo Pulmo Eco-palapas to anyone considering staying in this area, you will not be disappointed.

“Beautyful place, wonderful people”
What a sublime moment when spent at this place ! Bill was a wonderful guest and the accomodation so unique. One of our very best remembrance of a 3 weeks trip all around Mexico. Thanks again.
“Beautiful secluded beach”
If you are looking for peace,solitude,and a lovely, virtually private beach that goes for miles then, this is the spot for you! Since Eco Palapas are solar powered and off the grid, you will experience a quietude that nourishes your soul! We stayed in the Eagles Nest which is a second story apt. with a 360 degree view. You can watch sunrises, sunsets all from your comfy bed. While not a luxiourious hotel, it provdes for all of your needs. It even has a good wifi connection. Bill is a wonderful host - there to help you with anything you may need.
“Rustic, functional getaway with safe ocean swimming.”
My buddy and I were looking for an "off-the-beaten-path" getaway with sun, swimmable ocean beach and basic amenities where we could primarily appreciate nature in solitude. This is what we found at Cabo Pulmo Eco Palapa. We spent the last week of November 2012 in the then-newly-constructed "Sunset" casita. We rented a car in San Jose del Cabo, because that proved to be the most reliable means of getting there -- a nice 2-hour drive. We stopped in La Ribiera for provisions and got great, fresh meat, cheese, fruits and vegetables for our 7-day stay. Meals were also available for purchase at Eco Palapa at a very reasonable prices. The greatest feature at Eco Palapa is its beachfront location on playa Las Barracas, in that safe swimming beaches in Los Cabos are rare. It was hard to stay out of the water. It's very safe for kids too. We typically saw only a few other people there per day. With the exception of propane cooking and refrigeration, this an off-the-grid lodging, relying on solar power. It was pretty easy to adapt to the power-usage suggestions to avoid the noise of the backup generator coming on late at night. It was nice too that the other residents along the several mile long beach practiced a "lights out initiative" in the evening. Try to visit around the time of the full moon, as we did, if you can. "Sunset" has an open layout, with a sleeping area with 2 beds, one full, one twin; small sitting area, dining area and kitchen; and, its own bathroom with shower and sink. There was is a small surcharge for a linens change in less than one week, which we found desirable. Very small kitchen area; we used the dining table for prep, then eating. Cooking was manageable on 2-burner propane cooktop; refrigerator was also propane. Good space for 2-3; maybe a little tight for 2 couples. The lodging was once a garage, and the owner had the foresight to retain the large steel doors which we opened for hours at a time each day.
