Me and my girlfriend stayed at La Fonda this pass weekend (12-16) and yes the place is old and rustic, but that is the beauty in it. It’s not a Hilton so if that is what you’re looking for this is not the place for you. It’s for the people looking for something different. So getting to the room (#...

First off - La Fonda is not in Rosarito, it's in La Mision which is south of Rosarito (between Ensenada and Rosarito). My wife and I ate there a couple days ago for lunch (Dec/2011). We both had seafood (fish for me, shrimp for my wife). The portions are generous and the taste was acceptable. Nothing fancy here. We didn't...

Do not stay here, my girlfriend and I got completely worked over by bed bugs. I'm nervous that the infestation was so bad that I brought them home with me, I think I am getting fresh bites; not sure but it's kind of freaking me out...never experienced anything like this. A shame, we used to love this hotel. I didn't...

La Fonda takes great care to assure our guests a pleasent and healthy stay. In regards to the issue of bed bugs I do not think you had an issue of bed bugs. We have the property sprayed by a reputable pest control company on a regular basis and also vaccuum the beds because we know people like to take...

I participated in a wine tour of the vineyards in Ensenada and as part of the 3 day tour we stayed at La Fonda. The view, the water, the beach and the buffet were all of my favorite things about this hotel. It is definitely run down and needs some upgrades. My room had a great view and a big...

I have been here several times and I can't get enough. I love the atmosphere, the view, the memories, everything. The rooms are not fancy by any means but they are clean and comfortable. The ocean views are simply amazing. If you are a young, adventerous traveler, I highly recommend this place. Be careful with those margaritas, they're the strongest...

I stayed the last four nights at La Fonda Hotel. Went there for a family members wedding. I read reviews on Tripadvisor that were really scary about thefts, dirty rooms, high priced food etc... I have to say that was definitely not the case. Our room, #36 was very clean and comfortable. The housekeeping was excellent, with no thefts of...

Just got back from a great weekend. Location is great, right in the middle of Rosarito and Ensenada. The food at their restaurant is awesome. However this is not typical perfect bland room, very rustic, old and different. Must haves at the Lo Fonda is there Margaritas they are great!

After deciding to have some gates made in Rosarito, we decided to stay overnight in the area. The reviews of La Fonda online looked to be outstanding, so we decided to stay overnight. We were in one of their high profile rooms overlooking the beach and ocean, but looked at most of the other options. All are a funky, but...
