Villa Marina
Ranked #26 of 38 Hotels in Ensenada
Reviewed 30 July 2017 via mobile

This hotel is in a great location, two blocks from the water and right in downtown Ensenada. The area is safe and convenient, with lots of great food and drinks nearby. The rooms are good enough, they could use a serious deep clean to get some grime off of the hard to reach places (behind curtains and furniture and such) but the beds and bathroom are clean and comfortable. Our room had a great view too of the marina (hence the hotel name I suppose). Request a room high off the ground facing the ocean. There's a pool that we didn't use but it seemed to be well enjoyed by those in it.

The desk staff were really helpful, we asked to store our surfboards and they more than happily put them somewhere safe for us. One downside, though, the wifi absolutely didn't work in our seventh floor room.

Stayed here for the Baja 500 and enjoyed the great location and the marina view from our balcony. Having all of the downtown restaurants and shops around the corner was so convenient. Our vehicles were secure in the gated parking lot. Our room as clean and bright. The shower was hot. What more can you ask for?

I have stayed at the Villa Marina many times. They have made great improvements over the years. Rooms now include a heater/ air conditioning unit. Wifi routers on each floor for better chance at grabbing some time. Great place if driving to Ensenada because they have a big parking lot. Very centrally located to restaurants and other attractions downtown. English spoken very well. They do have a pool.

Great hotel for large groups traveling together.

Room Tip: One side faces the water, one side faces city. If you don't mind the noice on the city side, bot...

The villa marina is an older hotel but has aged fairly well. It's nicely located in the heart of Ensenada with a view of the port.

Staff was bilingual and friendly. Rooms are spacious and clean. Good wifi.

Walking distance to hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. Also a Starbucks 2 blocks away!

Secure parking with a guard on duty is also a bonus.

At $75 US a night, not Abbas deal for Ensenada.

We stayed here for 3 days and the price which we paid was not worth for this hotel. Rooms were ordinary and the bathrooms also were not so great. Its near downtown, staff was co-operative. Staff could communicate in English. Internet was pathetic and after complaining for 2 days it did not improve at all. Next time I would not prefer this hotel.
