Wifi was ok. the place was kind of musty, but u r by the ocean. The pool was not anything to go into. the frontdesk was ok. The place itself... More

OMG !!!!......We planned to stay only one night after a concert in the vineyards but couldn't stand it. It was very old, dirty, and too expensive for what you are getting. Bathrooms are rusted. I couldn't stay . I asked for my money back. Will not recommend it.

We never thought we would stay here. It was really a coincidence that the tollway was closed and we were on our wine tasting trip. The hotel was introduced to us by one of the wineries we visited. We took their word and we never regretted our choice. Since it was weekday, the hotel was not busy. The people at... More

Our toilet was really close to wall and when you use it almost hit the wall with your face. We paid 80 a night , I'm sure there is better... More

As first-time visitors of Ensenada, we wanted to make sure that we had the best views possible- staying at Villa Marina definitely achieved that goal. But despite its reasonable price, I cannot give a better rating as the hotel itself is outdated in every possible way. The hotel is in a central location, within walking distance to many of Ensenada's... More

I could have found a more upscale hotel it is true. But I want the view only offered by a high rise hotel. And this was it! The first night I spent on the city side of the Hotel, on the 5th floor. Watched the lights come on all over town, most of which has sprawled up three main hills.... More

It is an dated hotel, the decor of the late 70's and the room pretty worn looking. I wasn't expected a whole lot, but was expecting the bathroom shower to be much cleaner than it was. Too much mildew and the room carpet didn't feel clean. One of two elevator (very small) did not land properely on any floor, something... More

It is an old hotel and one of the tallest buildings in Ensenada. I was surprised by the night life of this small port of Baja California. Surrounded by deserts and majestic mountains Ensenada is an oasis of fun and entertainment. This property is located near the main tourist avenue and surrounded by bars, cafes and restaurants. Recommended for stays... More
