I have been a very regular customer to El Rey Del Sol for many years and while I've complained before about not being told about the Fast pass after spending many nights there, this experience was terrible! Let me begin by saying that the staff are pleasant (eventhough not too helpful this trip) and the standard rooms are fine. However,... More

If you enjoy the smell of stale cigarettes and love going to sleep to dripping taps, this is your place! Bask in the opaque pool. Enjoy bedsheets with no covers. Feel secure with a flimsy door and feel totally private in bed next to a floor to wall nearly clean window. At $100 a night, it's nearly free!

For everyone who's interested in coming to Ensenada: We stayed here for two nights and couldn't have chosen a better place. Very friendly stuff, very clean room and bed. the pool and hot tub are great too. Plus guarded parking. We highly recommend this place!

Central to restaurants and shopping, El Rey Sol is a fantastic hotel. My husband and I stayed for our ten year anniversary. Our room was clean and decorated with unique furniture to give the room a boutique hotel feel. They offer a continental breakfast across the street at their restaurant. You can choose between two plates: two eggs your way... More

Front desk staff spoke both English and Spanish. Hotel is in close to all the shops, restaurants and port. The beds were comfortable only thing is trying to find a parking spot on Saturday night was a mission because it was full but other else than that no issues finding parking any other nights.

We stayed here for the Rosarito Ensenada bike race weekend of May 2nd. At the time that we booked the only room left was an apartment. We paid $600 for a 2 night stay. It was HORRIBLE!
