“With colorful hand-stamped tiles playing off stark white walls and stunning views of the ocean and the mountains, it’s an Instagrammer’s dream. The call of the town, just ten minutes away, was the only reason we wrested ourselves away from poolside margaritas and strolls on the beach. With yoga lessons, two restaurants, and a library, it’s a village unto itself.”
“Few people had heard of Todos Santos, a sleepy surf town to the north of resort-filled Los Cabos. But that changed with the recent opening of super hip Hotel San Cristóbal, designed by Bunkhouse hotelier Liz Lambert. Here, Lambert brings the same stylish accents and laid-back cool as she did to El Cosmico, that glamping retreat in Marfa, Texas, you've definitely seen all over Instagram.”
“Because this town is nothing like buzzy, crowded, beautiful Tulum; it’s more like Marfa-by-the-Sea — similar aesthetic, same sleepy rhythm — with a resort by noted Texan hotelier Liz Lambert called Hotel San Cristóbal that has enough pastel tiles and mezcal cocktails to hinge a vacation on. But, really, you’re here for the beach, preferably Los Cerritos, which is open to the public (though you wouldn’t know that from how empty it is).”
"Like all of Texas-based hotelier Liz Lambert’s properties, this one feels totally of its place and seriously cool, with bright woven blankets, hand-stamped tiles, copal incense, and plenty of mezcal and cold Mexican beer. The location is a dream for surfers—and if you don't ride waves, you can still chill at the hotel’s turquoise-tiled pool or get out and explore the area. Borrow a cruiser bike from the hotel and pedal into Todos Santos for tacos, or rent a mountain bike and wind your way through miles of local trails."
"Lambert and her team at Bunkhouse Hospitality did a deep dive into the regional culture and design, making bimonthly research trips for four years. The findings inspired the hotel’s polished concrete walls, hand-stamped tiles, and equipales, traditional rustic chairs made from tanned pigskin and woven cedar strips."
"It is clear that every single element of the hotel has been painstakingly executed for maximum sensory enjoyment, and there’s a specifically modern delight that comes from noticing all the small details that make up the sum: The candlesticks in the library with their artfully dripped wax, the three large fireplaces tucked into different nooks, the curtains in the guest rooms with their pretty bamboo pulls, and the woodsy smoke of copal incense that trails you wherever you go."
“The southern part of Mexico’s Baja California state has a sun-soaked surfy feel and the Hotel San Cristobal - with its easy-on-the-eye 1970s look- ticks these boxes nicely."
"Just south of Todos Santos, meanwhile, Texas’s funky and forward-thinking Bunkhouse Group is about to open the doors of the Hotel San Cristóbal (tressantosbaja.com; from $250), part of the ambitiously holistic Tres Santos development of residences, restaurants and cultural venues that hopes to present a wholesome farm-to-table alternative to the glitz of San José del Cabo."
"Liz Lambert's Bunkhouse group, the company behind Austin's Hotel San José and Marfa's El Cosmico, brings its own brand of Texas cool to the boho fisherman/surfer town of Todos Santos. Details like kimono robes and a gong that's hit when the sun sets are impeccable. But it all takes a backseat to ridiculous views of the Pacific."
"Set on Baja California Sur peninsula, this newcomer is the latest from hipster hotelier Liz Lambert who tapped Texas architects Lake l Flato for the design.”
"When I think back to the three days I spent seduced by the landscape and vibe surrounding the Hotel San Cristóbal in Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, my memory is soundtracked by the Echocentrics’ 'Canyon.'"
