A cool little hipster spot in the center of San Jose. We started our honeymoon here and really enjoyed the Drift's central location, Mezcal and coffee bars, and the great staff. Angel, Mauricio and his team were awesome! Accommodations are classy but pretty basic, but this is part of the charm of the property. We'd definitely stay again, only constructive feedback is wishing the pool were a bit bigger--it was 95 degrees during our stay. Otherwise, great spot in San Jose!

This was our second time staying at Drift. First time was in early June. This time was last week of September. After just the first visit, Drift felt like home. Just a note that September is the hottest month and many business are closed in preparation for the tourist season which officially begins in November. We still found so much to do and, as always, enjoyed hanging out at the mezcal bar with Stu, Mauricio, Angel and Christian. Plan your visit to include a Thursday evening when Drift opens to the public as a beer garden with fabulous food trucks and a wonderful mix of locals and visitors.

An excellent alternative to the (way too) expensive resorts along the water, Drift lets you do your thing but will still provide you with excellent recommendations for making the Los Cabos area (and beyond) memorable. The staff are also excellent, and helped us tremendously during Hurricane Newton. The mezcal bar is a great place to swap stories of your day and plan your next and the location is great for exploring the restaurants in town and the places over in La Playa. Additionally, the spaces themselves are well designed and minimal in the best way possible.

Great style, great people, great location! We loved everything about our stay at Drift from the minimalist, contemporary design to Angel's warm welcome and spot-on restaurant recommendations. Don't miss food truck Thursdays!

I don't even know where to begin to tell you what an amazing time myself, husband and friends had at Drift. The staff consisted of three charming men who made all of us feel at home. It was a perfect place for a group to get together and relax while doing nothing and having the downtown area so close. However, we easily enjoyed ourselves when it was just the two of us. It was fun getting to know others who also stayed at Drift. The venue and rooms were perfection balancing - simplicity and style! Thank you Drift for making my 40th b -day something I will cherish forever!
