My boyfriend and I had a great time staying here. The place was beautiful, clean, and well located to yummy food (important!). Staff members were very friendly and attentive -- the whole experience was super serene and intimate in an I FOUND A COOL SECRET kind of way. Mezcal bar and plunge pool are A+. Thursday night food truck nights are fun! We had a car and didn't have a hard time finding street parking. YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY STAY HERE.

Drift is everything it seems and more! The 4 employees are all fantastically nice, welcoming, and engaging. The Mezcal bar is the best! Thursday night was great fun, the food truck eats were delicious, and hanging with the hip young locals is a blast. The room was perfect, minimal, comfortable, and a breath of fresh air. Plunge pool was clean and felt great to hop in a cool off. Bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper, the neighborhood dogs can be noisy at times. Also bring home a bottle of the house Mezcal, and some worm salt to impress your friends back home with the real deal.

The location of the hotel was great! There are plenty of places within walking distance, and Drift has a great information sheet that lists many of them. Our bed wasn't incredibly comfortable, but otherwise we enjoyed our stay here!

We loved everything about our stay at Drift. It was a very comfortable room, the property is exactly as the photos indicate - stylish, simple and in harmony with the surrounding environment. There are 8 unique, private rooms. The mezcal bar is stocked with some small batch offerings and a great way to meet other guests. My husband and I spent 8 nights here, and it was the most relaxing holiday we've ever had. Thank you to the brilliant team of 5 that make this place so welcoming. We hope to be back someday!

The team at Drift is super chill and hosts a great party on Thursday night. Staying at Drift adds a little bit of style and authenticity (smack in the middle of town) to your trip to Los Cabos.
