What a wonderful place, the perfect blend of BnB & hotel. The 'hotel' part is the sizable, well appointed, comfortable room with privacy and large bathroom. The BnB portion is the intimate communal areas, gardens, kitchen facilities, secure parking, and attentive but unintrusive personal service from Deborah & Gerardo. From a night with the whole place to ourselves to a... More

As greedy and selfish as I am, I write this review about this Baja Sur gem with tongue in cheek. Once you stay there you won't make a future reservation anywhere else and, consequently, will become my competition. True, as one reviewer wrote, La Damiana has location, atmosphere and Deborah, but it also has her gracious husband, Geraldo. After two... More

La Damiana Inn of Loreto is a great place to stay with pretty much everything you could ask of a casual inn. Deborah was there to greet me when I arrived by taxi and I must say that huge marks go to her for making the experience as good as it was. The room I stayed in was perfect with... More

We travel twice a year to Loreto and always start and end out adventure vacations with a few nights at La Damiana. This inn has lots of charming character. The rooms are all cosy and freshly updated, the showers clean and hot with nice fluffy towels and the coffee fresh. The garden offers both sun and shade to relax with... More

Stayed for 3 nights and glad we picked La Damiana. Central location for exploring downtown Loreto but the comfortable setting of La Damiana will tempt you to stick around the hotel. The open kitchen, garden patios, and lovely local artwork and colorful tilework all add charm to La Damiana but the best draw is definitely the owners, Gerardo and Deborah,... More

La Damiana is a restored home, made into a boutique hotel. The rooms are very charming and the feeling is very homey and relaxed. There is a large, private patio and a wonderful outdoor kitchen where you can make your own meals. The owners, Gerardo and Debora, are so nice and welcoming. They have a computer for guests, which beats... More

We LOVED our stay at La Damiana Inn. Proprietors Deborah and Gerardo were wonderful hosts, with a wealth of information about things to do in and around Loreto. This lovely old house has been restored in an artistic Mexican style, with a beautiful lush garden, including hammock and other comfortable seats for relaxing. He also appreciated how La Damiana Inn... More

We've stayed at La Damiana three times now and can't say enough great things about it. Great location. Great hosts. Great accommodation. Great service. Great atmosphere. Our favourite place to stay in Baja Sur.

This was a stop on our road trip to Cabo .We had trouble finding the place but the local police gave us an escort to the front door. Looks more like B&B and there were a number of colorful characters staying there. We were with friends so we got two rooms one upstairs and one in a cottage. The rooms... More

The pictures don't convey the lovely, artistic feel of this inn. It is beautifully decorated with interesting art & painted in lovely plaster colors & tile work. While we stayed there a local artist was painting the stairway with a cherry blossom mural. Each room is special. The garden area is an oasis for birds & people with fruit trees... More
