Nice place to stay really close to the beach with excellent views. Always stay here when visiting, family oriented. They have a small convenience store which makes it helpful. The staff is friendly, a couple of the rooms definitely need some retouching and maintenance.

Just came back from the Sonoran Sun in Puerto Penasco - It literally was beautiful, clean, and family friendly. We went for 7 days and the property is well kept up and the beach is always clean and nice. The condo was a two bedroom on the 4th floor. But any condo you stay in will have great views. I... More

This was our first time to Puerto Penasco, aka Rocky Point. We stayed at the Sonoran Sun on the 8th floor , SE building. The condo was very clean and well appointed. We brought food with us to eat for most meals, and the kitchen had everything we needed (except hand towels. Curious!). Every condo has a balcony overlooking the... More

We love Rocky Point and love staying at the Sonoran Sun Resort. The employees always helpful and courteous. The grounds including their 3 beautiful pools are well kept. Some nights it can get quite noisy, but it always seems to be taken care of by the security staff. Sonoran Sun thank you for your great hospitality!

They gave great conversation and even showed us a... More

We checked in on a Sunday and the check in process took about 5 minutes. That was a huge plus. Our condo was individually owned and it was a very nice 2 bedroom/2 bath on the 7th floor. The only issue was the A/C was not coming on. I finally called the front desk and they had the maintenance crew... More

We have stayed here with family and friends for years. Tried Las Palomas and will return here to Sonoran Sun for all future trips. Book early for best selection. Some rooms are decorated and more equipped than others. Someone reported that security was not good, I have made friends with security personnel on almost every trip. The do a good... More

We stayed in a top floor condo with amazing views of the beach and the sea. It was spotlessly clean with an extra large balcony with lots of seating. The pools, one heated and one not, were fantastic. The beach with its white sand and calm, clear water, was where we spent most of our time. There were always deck... More

I would at least like to start with a positive. The unit we stayed in was very clean and nicely appointed. The owner, Boris, was very easy to deal with as well. The very first night of our stay, we decided to hit the jacuzzi. We arrived late and only had about 40 minutes to enjoy the jacuzzi before the... More
