When you come here, make sure you go to the original restaurant/ bar. It has a spectacular patio that is on the edge of a cliff and has amazing views! Service here is always first rate and i have never been disappointed with a meal here. If you get cold you can ask your server for a blanket. Again the... More

Our friends wanted to stop at La Fonda on our way down to Ensenada. We didn't know what to expect. It turned out to be glorious. There is a small hotel built cliff side overlooking the Pacific and a very charming/romantic restaurant with a perfect view of the beach and the water. The day we were there was a Friday... More

I've been coming here for a while now, and felt guilty for not giving Sarah and Dmitry props for the perfect little reprieve they've cultivated at the Original La Fonda over the years. If you are looking for a resort feel or get bent over little imperfections, please mosey on down or up the road, so the vacancy sign will... More

This place is amazing for an evening dinner at sunset. The owner is a fantastic host, the food exquisite, the staff friendly, and the views magnificent. They had live music and dancing with a well stocked bar. Look forward to returning!

The desk will loan you a box fan and in July it was cool enough we did not miss the ac. The grounds are beautiful but not dog-friendly. They might claim to have wifi - don't believe it. Price is flexiable but you have to work for it

For starters La Fonda is maybe 25-30 miles south of the town/city Rosarito Beach. But, the drive on down is alongside the ocean is very pleasant. From November to February has Grey Whales are migrating south and are easily visible. From late March to late April they are there again, except that are heading north this time back to the... More

La Fonda has been around for over 50 years. Located 30 km before Ensenada...it is a waterfront gem. DMITRY puts on the best brunch by far. Excellent service & very easy on the pocket. On the free road just before La Mision. He also has rooms. Go in through the south door.

The food was fabulous, the views unsurpassed! Sarah & Dimitris were so welcoming and charming hosts to be back with their hotel was a treat. Sarah has made the most beautiful Beverly Hills style spa at the resort. If only we had known they were back with the hotel we would have stayed here. Instead we stayed 15 mins north... More
