Went to Rocky Point Mexico for a long weekend trip and stayed in a 1BR condo on the 4th floor at the Sonoran Sun. Condo was clean and very well decorated. Weather was perfect in the low 80's so we had the patio screen open to get a nice cool breeze blowing through the condo. All of the condos are... More

We stayed in SW 1001. I just want to say that the descriptions vary on the seaside reservation system with others of this unit. This unit is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath penthouse on the 10th floor with a wrap around balcony that is closest to The Esmeralda Resort. The first bedroom as you enter the unit on the right... More

After I got over the shock of arriving to party central and family galore, I was able to really enjoy this resort. Unfortunately we came to Puerto Penasco for a quiet getaway. We thought that all spring breaks were over. Wrong! We even chose Sunday through to Wednesday for an even quieter time but quiet is not what we got.... More

Yesterday night, around 7pm, the entire hotel ran out of water (the morning after we were told that a hotel employee broke a pipe by accident). This accident was solved until 5am the next morning, the worst part was not having no running water from fawcets or bathrooms, the worst came 3 hours later when a number of drunken hotel... More

I stayed in a one bedroom with a wrap-around balcony with a friend. Here is a list of what I consider to be pros and cons. Pros * Heated pool during cold months * Secure parking lot * Convenience store on the premise * Friendly and helpful staff * Security in the pool area* Ample elevators * Swim up bar... More

We rented a 2 BR suite with another couple for a 4 day holiday. It was my husband's birthday and the staff gave him a lovely gift photo of a sunset on the gulf and they decorated the mirrored closet door in our bedroom with a birthday mural and balloons. It was all totally above our expectations and much appreciated.... More

We just returned from our first trip to Rocky Point. There are a lot of great looking resorts, it was hard to choose but we were very pleased with the Sonoran Sun. Its proximity to the beach is outstanding, with each room having a gorgeous ocean view and amazing balcony. Rooms are large and well accommodated. Our only complaint is... More

We booked this off the Senora Sun reservations from a property agent in Phonenix. The room we booked was on the 3rd floor east side. When we arrived we got a 6th floor suite. ( 603E) and I would stay there again. Nicely appointed and all items in room working. TV, CABLE, DVD. No complementary shampoo etc, but I generally... More
