“Charming ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We were staying in Loreto for a couple of nights and then a week at Villa Del Palmar 20 miles out of town. While in town we notices this hotel, walked through it and wished we had known about it before. It is so charming and beautifully decorated. The rooftop glass bottom pool is really cool and the views beautiful from the rooftop terrace. The staff was professional and very gracious. The rooms were decorated after different flowers and were very charming, comfortable and clean. We opted to stay there on our last day and night in Loreto and can't wait to go back and stay again. Anyone who would like this place has something wrong with them. Centrally located in a very quaint, charming clean old town of Mexico with the culture all around and wonderfully gracious and proud people. Fabulous food in local restaurants and the best Margarita's ever!
We recommend very highly.

Our hotel was just as advertised. Right in the center of town and walking distance to everything. Across the plaza from the first catholic church in Baja.
Small hotel with great Mexico charm. Nice views from the roof but must look past telephone wires. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We opted for the suite which was a nice size and beautifully decorated in colonial decor. Bed was comfortable but no hot water in shower.

First trip to Loreto and was surprised how clean the town was. Several residents sweeping the curbs in front of their houses. Malecon recently improved and nicely done. Very friendly people and very slow pace. I recommend dinner at the Palapa restaurant.

I haven't given a hotel a "Terrible" rating in years, but if there were a lower category, I'd assign it to this place immediately. After a tumultuous 6 + hour drive from Cabo, we were anxiously awaiting the respite promised by some other TA reviews as well as a well decorated, well worded, glossy hotel web site. Our check in was relatively smooth, albeit haltingly slow. Walking the steps to the third floor "junior suite," I inquired as to the location of the hotel bar - NO BAR !! The check in guy laughed, apparently amused I'd ask for such an amenity in Mexico.
The unnumbered rooms on the third floor, he informed us, were the "suites;" how inviting, I thought, considering there was no bar. The room was tiny, tiny, stifling hot, the AC providing little relief. There was no desk for a laptop or writing, or anything else, for that matter. The old orange chair was complete with threadbare coverings, and a hole in the cushion. Upon sitting in the chair, my butt literally hit the floor - zero support. While on the floor, I noticed some unwanted guests - roaches on the floor and one on the wall. Alas, we located the "balcony" with a "plaza view." the "balcony" was a mere ledge not large enough for one person. The "plaza view" was completely obscured by a large tree. We decided to leave the room and walk to town for dinner and, yes, a margarita. On the way out the door, I told the check in guy we would not be staying the third night.
Following a great dinner on the plaza, we returned to the hotel for a dip in the highly touted roof top pool. Upon returning, the check in guy informed us that we would be charged for the third night even though we had given notice. The tiny pool was uninviting, covered in black bugs. We noticed an empty, locked bar on the rooftop, but who cares? A closed bar doesn't sell many drinks. The real shocker of the night came when we went to bed. The bed was made up with a lower fitted sheet and a heavy, thick goose down comforter. While this might initially sound cozy. the choices were either to sleep under the comforter and burn up, or sleep out of the comforter and be cold. A top sheet or blanket would have been so much more appropriate than a comforter befitting Alaska or Denmark far more than Mexico. Our sleep was a horrible night of cold/hot/toss/turn, etc. At this point, we decided not to stay the second night, either, charge or no charge, but we were not going to lose sleep another night.
"Breakfast" the next morning was bleak, so we went next door and had a wonderful hot breakfast for USD $6. I looked for some sign of life at the front desk before leaving, but found no one. We left the key in the room and hit the road. Absolutely the worst hotel experience I've encountered in a long, long time.

Room Tip: There are no tips for such a bad place; don't go in the first place.

As soon as we walked into this small hotel, I knew it was going to be special. The entrance and ground floor spaces are cool and welcoming. How amazing to look up and see the glass floor of the rooftop pool! The bed was so comfortable and the 'art work' in the bathroom was amazing - never seen a swan made from a towel before.........The staff are friendly and helpful and were always available when we had any queries. Breakfast on the roof was wonderful and the 'breakfast' lady behind the scenes always waved and made us feel so welcome. Great 'people watching' opportunity from up on high as well. Yes - Loreto is small but there are lots of hidden gems. We had great, cheap tacos at a small local restaurant and an amazing evening at Fandangos coffee bar. Would always choose to stay here rather than the larger more impersonal hotels on the Malecon (boardwalk).

Beautiful mexican style-hotel situated in centre of town, helpful and kind staff en good choice of breakfast, swimming pool at the roof. We've enjoyed our stay here. Although hotel is beautiful, town was very quiet. Not much activity going on.

Five of us went to the bar and we had 8 shots of tequila and 4 beers. The bartender charged us US $180 for this, a total ripoff. When we asked him if that was the correct amount he looked at his buddy at the bar and they both smiled. Do yourselves a big favor and avoid this place.

Omg! This was our third trip to this spa and the massages are both reasonable and excellent! On this trip they had a special, full body massage for $39.99 USD. Wow! Agnes & Sergio, the proprietors are both complete professionals and personable. Agnes, Sergio & Suje are all a 10 on a 10 scale for massage expertise. They are skilled in various modalities of massage as you would expect from any 5 star plus facility, I'm not sure what the actual hotel is rated, but this is the real deal when it comes to massage satisfaction and professionalism. My wife got a mani/pedi as well and was very satisfied. The shop also has items for sale inside. Don't miss this diamond in the rough.

Room Tip: Unsure of hotel quality as we did not stay here. The spa is wonderful and well with the visit.
