Quirky charm and stylish elegance of Hotelito

Date Published:

Todos Santos truly deserves it “Pueblo Magico” title – it really is an extraordinarily beautiful place

A relaxed, artsy, hippy town, an hour’s drive north of Cabo, Todos Santos attracts people for its old worldly charm. Giving them a real feel of what the “old Baja culture” used to be.


Enormously popular with artists, foodies, surfers, birdwatchers and generally all those looking for a more traditional Baja experience. It is much more chilled than its noisy neighbor, Cabo.


With a surprising array of amazing restaurants, charming little streets and shops, hip B+B’s and boutique hotels, Todos Santos is definitely the place to head if you want some peace and tranquility.

And a wonderful place to stay when you are there is the quirky Hotelito - a beautiful little boutique hotel. Located on the outskirts of town, with a fabulous view of the famous Palm Oasis, each room is charmingly constructed as its own little “casita” -  with a private terrace or garden.

Like so many who visit Baja California Sur, Hotelito owner and designer Jenny Armit fell in love with the breathtaking natural beauty of the area when she came on vacation 10 years ago, A second trip confirmed that she wanted to make her life in Todos Santos. And so, the concept of Hotelito was born….


Lucky enough to buy an amazing 5-acre plot of land close to La Cachora beach, with amazing views over the desert arroya to the old Mission Church, Jenny first built her new family home, plus a villa to rent.

A couple of years later came the Hotelito. With a successful career in interior design Jenny had a clear vision of what she wanted to create -


“Something unique and colorful; a mini homage to my much admired and beloved Mexican architects Barragan and Legoretto. More than anything I wanted each little casita to have space and privacy, so I built each one as a stand-alone house. A private tiny world for each guest to call home.”

And Hoteltio is exactly that. Utterly charming and beautifully designed. Each of the four rooms are named after a color – Azul, Rosa, Verde, and Violeta. With exquisite beds, luxurious English linen, and “at least one piece of serious design furniture”. Filled with perfumed plants and shady hammocks the verandahs are a delight. As is the 48-foot saltwater pool. A recently added kitchen even allows guests to prepare their freshly caught fish, or experiment with local produce.


And the charm doesn’t stop there. As a self-confessed animal lover, Jenny made sure she had sufficient space, far enough away from guests, to keep her beloved horses and goats. “The animals are mine. And I keep them away from the guests. But often they fall in love them, and want to feed them, and look after them. They get very attached to them. I think it’s what this place does to people – it helps them relax, and enjoy things they wouldn’t ever do in the middle of New York or LA. The animals have become a part of who we are here at Hotelito. With a donkey and some sheep too – it’s sort of a petting zoo” laughs Jenny.


So, if you want serenity and tranquility, and be able to ride horseback along an empty beach, see a local farmer use a horse and cart on his land, or spend hours in your hammock watching the whales at play, Hotelito is the place for you.


Peaceful, private, stylish and elegant, mixing rich Mexican colors with modern architecture, and only 10 minutes from the center of Todos Santos.  With a warm, friendly and very attentive staff, magnificent Mexican breakfasts, and breathtaking natural surroundings Hoteltio promises a wonderful experience.


 And as director/actor Diego Luna’s favorite “go to place” in Todos Santos – you shouldn’t really need any more persuading. Click through to Hotelito for more details and bookings.
