Had a very enjoyable stay at the El Tiburon Casitas. The room was clean and comfortable. It had a full kitchen and a big bathroom - nicely decorated. Comfy bed I may add. Liz gave us some good tips on places to go and see. I had some trepidation on coming to Loreto but I soon felt at ease in... More

I am so happy your fears were put to rest here in Loreto and the Casitas. Loreto is a safe little town and our Gated property open only to registered guests ensures your confidence. We do have American beds rather than the hard slats often found in Baja Hotels and great showers! Thanks for taking the time to review. And... More

This is the perfect place to stay in Loreto! Liz was a wonderful host and helped arrange a great day snorkeling for us. The Casitas are very comfortable and a great location within walking distance of everything in town. There is high speed WiFi to keep in touch back home.

Can't say enough good about El Tiburon! It was everything we had hoped - and more! Liz, the owner was not only informative but took the work out of planning by arranging anything we wanted to do. She has a wealth of knowledge about Loreto and the surrounding area and her commitment to the community is to be commended. Our... More

We stayed here for a week with our three year old son--Casita #4 was perfect for us with a comfortable King bed and single for my son. The small clean pool was perfect for my son to splash around in as we could see him from our room or sitting in front of our casita. Both Liz and Lee were... More

Thank you for writing such a positive review! Our beds are all imported from the USA so we do dot use those VERY hard beds often found in Mexico! And we have super nice pillows and linens too. Our small intimate pool and patio is perfect for couples and small groups. We are not really set up for kids- no... More

Four tastefully appointed casitas around a small pool outdoor dining area with hammocks. Each casita has kitchenettes and bathrooms with nice showers. The owner, Liz is very friendly and willing to help organize whatever you want to do whether it's connecting you with a local fishing guide, a driver for out of town excursions or recommend local dining. We had... More

These casitas have absolutly everything you need to have a wonderful, safe vacation in Loreto. The entire town is set against a sea wall so if you want the best location to get to the public swimming beach and the Marina this is it. The owner or manager will help you with anything you want to do and make sure... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a great review! Yes the town is on a seawall so there are not really hotels on the BEACH per se. We do feel we have the very best location as you discovered. And just far enough from the Malecon and busy front road to be intimate and quiet. We are pleased that... More

Thanks for reviewing our small boutique hotel! Glad you had a great time here. Since you left we added a second internet service so that any iffy spots inside Casita 1 will get better coverage. WiFi as improved and speed and coverage so hopefully that will help those visitors who cannot unplug while on vacation! Hope to see you back... More
