We stayed here in January, it was our first visit to Loreto. Liz the owner was very friendly and helpful - happy to give suggestions to make your stay superb. The casitas and lounging areas around the pool are immaculate and equipped with everything you need. The use of the bikes was wonderful - it's flat and easy to get... More

As a solo women traveller I have to say i am so happy I chose this property to stay for a month. From the moment I was greeted at the gate by Liz's friend and part-time employee Lee (and dog Sirena, who along with the other guard dogs are my new BFF's whom I take on my morning beach walks)...

We had the privilege of staying at El Tiburon in January 2016. We were warmly welcomed by Liz and her friendly dogs. I have to completely disagree with the previous reviewer (who did not even stay at this property) and ignored the signs at the front gate and tried to enter the property unannounced. Yes the dogs guard the property... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a complete and elegant review! And for addressing the previous 1 star review from someone walking by who has never even contacted this hotel, much less stay here. We try very hard to make sure our guests are comfortable and have what they need and we really appreciate the... More

First of all, I'm embarrassed to admit that although I am always on tripadvisor, I rarely take the time to write a review. However, Liz and El Tiburon are so outstanding that I need to acknowledge her efforts and our new favorite place. My husband and I traveled with our kids (20 and 21) and had the best time. The...

This was our first trip to Loreto (which we had not actually even heard of until we stumbled on it while trying to book a trip for the Christmas - New Years break) and we loved it! We lucked into finding El Tiburon Casitas and loved every minute of our stay there. The Casitas are fully equipped, spotlessly clean, homes... More

Last year was our first to Loreto and we stayed at a lovely hotel. We wanted to come back and find more of a "home away from home". I don't want to cook but want a fridge for leftovers, want cocktails by the pool but not a waiter. We love to be able to go anywhere without renting a car.... More

We just enjoyed our first Thanksgiving in Loreto. We stayed at El Tiburon Casitas, and the whole experience was great from beginning to end. The casitas are very well constructed, very clean, and perfectly equipped. The casitas are serviced daily, and you can even have your laundry done for a very fair price. The town square, mission, bank, restaurants, and... More

We were happy to spend 8 days at El Tiburon. Conveniently located close to the Malecon and the Plaza, El Tiburon has off street parking and is an adult-friendly place to stay. Our casita was large with cooking facilities and all the amenities that go with it. There is a nice pool and Palapa where guest can relax outside and... More

Liz does a great job of providing a clean, well-run hotel with all the amenities, and an easy walk to the main part of town. She checks in with you on a regular basis to see that your needs are met and to provide direction or help with any problems or concerns. Everything was perfect.

Thank you for confirming that our location is the best in Loreto! We are lucky to be right here in the heart of Loreto yet still tucked away behind in our gated compound so you will not be disturbed by bar noise or traffic. We pride ourselves on the best maintained property and will immediately fix any issues that come... More

El Tiburon Casitas was just what we were looking for - very comfortable, charming, and conveniently located just two blocks from the malecon (waterfront walkway) and three blocks off the main square. I hate generic places and this is the opposite of that. Liz the manager is friendly, attentive, and helpful with recommendations. We slept very well here, and enjoyed... More
