We came down to celebrate a birthday. Really enjoyed our stay. The food was delicious! The Prime rib, lobster and the chile verde were my favorites as well as the bar steak special. Awesome views all around. Great beach! The Swedish massage was amazing!

LaFonda restaurant is like a historical monument. I hear it has been around for ages, and that the stars from Hollywood use to frequent here in days gone by. We sat outside on the balcony overlooking the sea, and it was such a peaceful and beautiful sight. The food was simple and tasty to be sure. I don't know what... More

Stayed here for a night this past weekend, haven't stayed here in years and am so glad I came back. Ocean front rooms with private balconies and a fireplace starting at $80. Clean comfy beds, nicely updated rooms. $15 unlimited buffet with cocktails on Sundays. Highly recommend coming here!

Great experience at La Fonda for our 42nd wedding anniversary. Located on the free road about 20 kilometers south of downtown Rosarito, La Fonda is located on a bluff right on the ocean. Good prices and great food compliment the wonderful ambiance and friendly wait staff. You won't be disappointed by your trip to La Fonda.

We booked Bungalow 21, one of their best rooms, but upon check in, we were told there is only 1 King bed even though we were 4 people. So they booked us in room 5 with 2 king beds. The room was small and you could barely pass by each other on the way to the bathroom. Bathroom door didn't... More

We have come here before, while staying in La Mision (nearby housing community) and came here again this year after surfing Alistos, K58. The views are fantastic and if you can get a seat overlooking the beach it's very much worth it. The vibe is a good mix of locals from the La Fonda area and people staying at the... More

My wife had their buffet like 10 years ago. We were passing by on our back from Ensenada and she convinced me to stop. I am glad she did. It was a Saturday, so no buffet, but it is a quaint place, incredible ocean view. a couple chickens cruising around. A guitarist was playing live music, songs from the 60's... More
