A few casitas around a courtyard and swimming pool, well isolated from the street. My casita was spotless and comfortable, well decorated and with a full kitchen. Liz, the owner, was helpful from the moment I arrived. The location, close to the waterfront and to the central square, could not be better. Maybe there are places in Loreto that are... More

El Tiburon Casitas is another of the small service oriented hotels brought about by what I like to call the Trip Advisor Era. In these days of instant access to reviews for every hotel in the world, thanks to sites such as this, Many small hotels have the ability to compete with the large places based on merit. Whether judged... More

Thank you for traveling all the way from Canada to stay in Loreto. I am glad you found the town to be quiet and charming like most people do. We do take pride in having the cleanest and most modern equipped casitas. Each Casita is different, in colors and design and layout, with different numbers of beds as you mention..... More

We finally got around to going to the El Tiburon Casitas website to find availability in Loreto as a base to travel to whale watching sites. We found that they had availability even though other travel websites indicated no vacancy. We booked directly on their website and spent a week in one of their Casitas with everything in the room...

As a very small boutique Hotel, we need to control all our booking directly with you! The... More

Karen and I rented a casita for the week February 2-9. Our interaction with the owner started months before our arrival and continued on a daily basis during our visit. She recommended tours, restaurants, shops, a bank, and sight seeing. We were seeking the 'real' Baja and we found it and it was a great week. We did not have... More

We stayed at the Casitas for a week in January. Based on reviews, I was confident it would be a good experience, but it surpassed our expectations with flying colors!

Your kind words are very much appreciated. Thank you for pointing out our well equipped kitchens. I try to make sure you will have what you need including wineglasses, Tupperware containers, ice tea pitchers, juice squeezers, toothpicks, etc. The dogs and the Bikes always seem to be a hit.

We visited Loreto for the first time in early December, 2013. We found it to be unspoiled and reminiscent of the Mexico we remember from our childhoods. I had narrowed down our preferences for accommodations to the three most highly ranked. We wanted to be within walking distance of restaurants and the marina, and to have an equipped kitchen.

Dear Hayley, Thank You for Choosing El Tiburon for your group of 11. 10-12 people is ideal to rent the whole facility. And we are super happy you found our well stocked Casitas to be worth the money! Our 2014 rates of 90 dollars a couple make us a great value for what we offer and our superb location! More
