Great experience at La Fonda for our 42nd wedding anniversary. Located on the free road about 20 kilometers south of downtown Rosarito, La Fonda is located on a bluff right on the ocean. Good prices and great food compliment the wonderful ambiance and friendly wait staff. You won't be disappointed by your trip to La Fonda.

We booked Bungalow 21, one of their best rooms, but upon check in, we were told there is only 1 King bed even though we were 4 people. So they booked us in room 5 with 2 king beds. The room was small and you could barely pass by each other on the way to the bathroom. Bathroom door didn't... More

We have come here before, while staying in La Mision (nearby housing community) and came here again this year after surfing Alistos, K58. The views are fantastic and if you can get a seat overlooking the beach it's very much worth it. The vibe is a good mix of locals from the La Fonda area and people staying at the... More

My wife had their buffet like 10 years ago. We were passing by on our back from Ensenada and she convinced me to stop. I am glad she did. It was a Saturday, so no buffet, but it is a quaint place, incredible ocean view. a couple chickens cruising around. A guitarist was playing live music, songs from the 60's... More

This was my first time at this hotel and by far one of my favorites. To start the outside of the hotel is very hacienda looking and the vibrant colors add much character to the charm. I had the pleasure of staying in Room #21 and the view was just Spectacular words are not enough to explain the authenticity of... More

I remember the Sunday brunch being amazing and it didn't disappoint after a decade. everything from mexican stews , fresh fruit, omelet station, huevos rancheros, Chile rellenos , I could go on the bottomless Margaritas & Bloody Marys didn't hurt either. With many steps down to the very quite beach its a great way to walk off the big meal.

This review is for the restaurant just south of what was the original La Fondas. Both still bear the name La Fonda (how confusing is that?), but the north one, the original location, has gone downhill, while the south one is updated with tasteful live music, and fine food. We went with several friends and watched the sun go down... More

The buffet was reasonably priced and a good way to try various items. We loved the green chili stew and tge tacos. The staff was friendly and helpful. And we were served sugar almond cookies at the end and they were delicious!

We had gone here before the feud. Staff are friendly, food is good, view is great. Spa service is okay. The worst this time was the bed bugs. My daughter, son in law and several of their friends were eaten alive.

Service is good, although they need to be clear about their rates and show them on their website. The staff is very nice and the food at the restaurant is very good. Wi-Fi hardly worked during the two days and it is available only in the restaurant. The room looked unfinished and had a lot of carved names in the... More
