This review is for dinner on 4/22/17. Seated on an outdoor patio under a palapa, music in the background, watching the ocean and pilot whales swim by--doesn't get much better than that for ambience! Add excellent food and spot-on service; that's what I experienced a Dmytri's Original La Fonda (not to be confused with the other La Fonda next door...

This review is only for Spacifico, the boutique spa on the grounds of the hotel. The main reason for the 5 stars is due to our experience with Antonio Salceda, the manager of the spa. He is the REAL deal! He has trained his therapists to give wonderful, relaxing massages. (The sound of ocean waves is very peaceful, too.) He...

Nice little resort sitting on top of a bluff overlooking the Ocean. Nice clean rooms, Not an upscale hotel but very nice. We had a fireplace in our room. We did the spa day and it was awesome. Steam, Massage, Wine all with looking at the Ocean. Did the Sunday Brunch was Pretty Good. Would to it again.

If you come expecting a Marriott you'll be disappointed, but dining while viewing the ocean, getting a good idea of Baja and feeling safe is all very possible here. You can be in Baja and still afford a nice visit.

We will book this hotel again. Our room was beautiful. We originally booked a 2 queen bed room but realized we needed more space for the 3 of us so we switched to a suite. Both rooms were clean clean and decorated beautifully. They have barn doors for the bathrooms and the neatest looking tile and vanity area. You will...

Wonderful roaring fire, good entertainment and service. The owners are lovely folks. But the food - that's another story. Soup and salad yummy but the main course was terrible. Worst french fries I've every had and the fish was inedible. To be fair, my dinner companions who had the lobster dinner were happy but my meal and my husbands were...

We visited the La Fonda Restaurant on a Cruise Ship Tour. We started with a great Margarita and went for a second one, accompanied with homemade salsa and corn chips. We ordered calamary and had plenty of time to enjoy the food and drinks and the superb view of the Ocean. A cosy atmosphere in a typical Mexican restaurant. There...

Checked out La Fonda on Sunday around 11 am and the place was packed! There was a buffet with all you can drink Bloody Mary's which seem to be the popular item of the day. My boyfriend and I opted for the regular lunch menu which was great! He ordered the lobster stuffed shrimp, I had the swordfish, an order...

We stopped for a breakfast here and it was very good and reasonable and the view was gorgeous. We are traveling with our service dog and had no problems bringing her out on deck with us. We even spotted a whale. Staff was great happy and welcoming would have no problem going back or even staying at hotel.
