In planning this trip we had a difficult time deciding to stay here or in town. We are glad that we chose to stay here; we visited the town one day and were not impressed. There is not much to do there and the waterfront was bleak. We had dinner at the Mission Hotel and it was excellent.
This resort is 45 minutes out of town, so it really is a destination stay. We read various reviews about the resort and were slightly wary. It is a little odd that when you leave the highway you are on a gravel/dirt road that actually crosses a riverbed. Very bumpy. However, once you get to the resort, it is a different experience. The rooms are large with a full kitchen and top of the line appliances. The deck is large with great views of the bay. There is no in-room wifi, but you can get a signal from the wifi at the pool if you go to the deck railing. There is no Verizon cell service, but apparently ATT works.
The service at the pool and restaurants was dependable, but a little slow. Always very pleasant. The facility is very well maintained and you can see staff constantly working on it. The food was fairly good; there are two restaurants and food at the pool/beach outdoor facility.
The staff put on nightly shows with different themes that everyone seemed to enjoy. We liked the glow in the dark art that is on the walks out to the waterfront. The evening sky is full of stars.
All in all we had a great experience here and were not sorry we booked there. I most likely will not go back to Loreto however.
