Staying at Drift was an unforgettable experience, and has set the standard for boutique vacation getaways going forward. The staff is beyond friendly and hospitable, care about your experience during and after, and just are all around great people. Angel was our main contact point - he was great conversation, provided ideal local recommendations (helped me stray away from anything too touristy), and it was always a pleasure seeing him on site. There is literally no other place I know of like Drift. Wonderful for networking (if you want to) but quiet and quaint enough to feel like you are in your own world of no distractions - which Drift lets you get to be. Squeezing my own fresh orange juice and pressing my own coffee every morning, hanging out on the coolest built in concrete-yet-comfortable furniture/amenities, Mezcal just steps away from our room...Drift alone completely changed my impression of Baja! Love this place and will see it again soon - and sooner through the eyes of my friends as I eagerly can't stop recommending this place to the people I care about most!

Team Drift is on a good level for people with independence and taste. The area is quaint and classic feeling. Everyone there was super friendly without being in your business. Dope! Look no further and book it now. Mezcal. Food. Vibes.

Our stay at the Drift last week was one of the best weeks we've had in so long! This thoughtfully designed hotel that Stu, the owner, has created right in the middle of historic San Jose was even better than we anticipated. The staff is so warm and quick to give recommendations, directions, etc. The amenities at the Drift fit our needs exactly -- dipping pool for the afternoon, beach towels on site, firepit for chilly evenings, stocked kitchen for fresh orange juice and banana bread in the morning, and the most amazing mezcal bar around. We spent our days on gorgeous nearby beaches watching whales and reading books, ate delicious meals at restaurants right outside the hotel gates and if you rent a car, there are so many other places to explore right outside San Jose. I'd list all my favorite spots here, but they were all recommended by the Drift staff so be sure and ask them when you arrive!

We absolutely loved our time at Drift - the staff, amenities, location, weather, and especially Clara! I would stay here again without hesitation.

It was a great experience to stay at Drift. The location was great for getting to know San Jose del Cabo. We could've stayed on the water but opted for this beautiful oasis to mingle and meet people. All the staff and owner were very accommodating. Thanks for a great time in Cabo... look forward to coming back to Drift.

Once we arrived at Drift, we knew we made the right decision. It was such an intimate setting that allowed us to interact organically with the other guests. The Mezcal tasting bar open every night created the perfect setting for getting to know the staff, owner, and others staying at the property. The entire space is beautiful and provided just what we needed. If we come back to the San Jose del Cabo area, we will definitely stay here! Thanks for a wonderful experience!
