staff could improve more customer service should be very important to them to uptain more tips they were sad and angry but they should know if not for us they would not have any work.

Not super luxurious, but a fantastic place. Great spot!

This is Mexico; not "American" Mexico, but Out West Mexico. That said, found this restaurant/hotel on Or itz and being familiar with the area and a bit adventurous, looking at photos and map, decided to try it for ourselves (comfortable Baja travelers) and another couple (first time south of TJ). I reserved a larger "2 bed" room for our friends at their request, and an even less-expensive "King bed" room for ourselves since my tall husband prefers King. I optioned to Pay On Arrival, not online. Hotel is 2-3 miles of OK dirt road from Camalu; arrive before dark. Upon arrival the staff (1 of 3) graciously showed us the rooms before paying, since they were not expecting to be full that night. Our King bed room was shown first, ground level with ocean view, and would have been OK for us, certainly for their asking price (older and a bit musty-smelling). The small room also had a twin bed in it. Then we were led upstairs to our friends' slightly more expensive "2 double-bed" room, #18. What a difference, that newer, more spacious room. My husband and I immediately decided to forego the king, and upgraded to an upstairs room, #16. The building is in a partially finished state, as are many in that area. The grounds are also rustic, partially "finished" plans. Our tile-floor room opened by sliding glass door to a nice balcony. Other amenities: 2 unopened water bottles, small coffee pot, coffee packets; soap& small packets of shampoo, towels, a working TV.

I very much enjoyed my stay at Cueva del Pirata. My room had a balcony, and a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. The hotel is away from town, so there's no noise from Camalú, only the sound of the surf to serenade you to sleep. The staff is very pleasant, and the restaurant has some delicious dishes. Also, El Rosario, and San Quintin are easy drives, and there are some fantastic food, and sights of the ocean to be had in those places too. My only complaint about the hotel would be that the building and the grounds are incomplete. In between my room and the ocean was a muddy construction pit that seems like it was supposed to be a pool eventually, but had been abandoned halfway through. Also parts of the hotel were "under construction" (or more likely construction was abandoned there too) - though those parts were separated from the guest areas.
