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

We stay here 1 night on our first family trip to Mexico. This location is secluded from the busy town but it has everything you need. Amazing ocean views from all the rooms, restaurant, and spa. It is outdated with no tvs or AC but really you don't even miss them. Left our balcony open at night allowing the sound... More

This review, just to be sure, is for the "original" la Fonda hotel, also known as Dmytri's. We came here for my birthday weekend, and the view from our room was amazing! It was breathtaking and unforgettable. The entire weekend, we stayed in the hotel area , and it was relaxing. The foods and drinks were delicious! I would give... More

Had a great time, the staff and owner were really helpful, had a really nice dinner, the view from the room was amazing with their location right on the bluff, they even had a 24 hour security guard at the parking lot, and we hope to return soon!

First thing is first. This review is for Dmytri's La Fonda Hotel and Bar. The place owned by the friendliest and most helpful couple you can find. This ownership takes absolute pride in their location and it shows. First thing I found is I had a hard time getting confidence in a good telephone number to contact them. Their FB... More
