Great hotel that is made even better by the owners George "Doc" and Joanne Armstrong. Rooms are large and clean, walk in shower with great water pressure, top notch chefs in the kitchen and close to the fishing docks. An A+ experience.

Small, Quiet, Quaint and Relaxing. Fishing Right across the street. We could roll out of bed and be on the boats. Old Mexican charm with Bar and Restaurant on property. Excellent food and drinks. They cooked our fish for us. Wonderful!!

I wanted a place near the fishing and were we could relax. Never been that far south into Mexico and with a just 18 yo son, didn't want to spend the night drinking and then try to fish the next day. Found LaMarina from a local tour operator. It was everything I needed. We stayed in the Penthouse, but the... More

Do you want to go fishing on the Sea of Cortez in Baja Sur, Mexico? I have been going down there for 40+years and although nothing is like it was in the "old days", this place is great. What makes it so good for us fishermen is the food, the drinks..fresh squeezed orange juice...cold beer and a 2 for 1... More

We stayed here 2 nights and fished on a panga from the marina. I will admit first impression was kind of meh. Boyfriend who is typically okay with anything seemed to be considering looking for something else when we first arrived. Room appeared rough at first glance but a/c worked great, an absolute necessity in Cabo in June. Shower water... More

We stopped in here for breakfast and the staff was really friendly and the food was decent. The owner George is a nice... More

La Marina is small, but set in a fun and safe environment. The food was wonderful and great people we met even better. A hotel built right across the street but the owner doesn't care because he said he's protected from hurricanes. The beach is a quick walk where you can safely swim. We'll be back.

We stayed at the inn for a total of 4 weeks this December thru January 15 2014 and we had a great time. The Manager and Staff are very helpful pleasant and friendly. Especially Kelly who is a great front desk person. We think that this hotel could be even better with a few improvements, even though El Ganzo has... More

We were checking out the marina and we decided to stop for a drink. What a great surprise! We sat down, ordered and proceeded to meet people enjoying there time in this great place. Bob, a friend of owner George told us "you have to meet this guy". He was so right. George is a great guy, when he told... More
