Always a bit of a party scene but people in the shops were so nice and we had a great experience overall. We bought a few things, had a fantastic dinner at El Nido and walked the beach seeing horses and people dancing on the sand. Happy crowds and a nice place to visit.

Rosarito Beach is a great place to spend some time, except on the weekend. As a local I pick weekday's to walk the beach, see the sunset, and look for shells. On the weekend it is packed and you can hardly see the sand for all the visitors, and trash piled up higher than the waves. And now many business... More

Once you're on the beach, it isn't bad, however it's not worth the horrendous drive back across the Tijuana/San Ysidro border crossing. It took a little more than four hours to go .6 miles. Yes, that's correct. Less than one mile of continuous street vendors trying to sell everything from food, Jesus statues and phone chargers...

Don't believe all the negative comments about Rosarito. It is no more dangerous than the States. For me this is a double edge sword as I prefer it when there is less people but the locals need the tourists to survive. I can only come here about once a month but wish I could live in Rosarito.

The Rosarito beach itself and its classic Rosarito Beach Hotel have been added to couple years ago. They now have a HUGE add-on hotel makes this the 'place to stay' in Rosarito Beach. Good food and drinks, owned by a family that is knowlegeable and caring ... and has long been involved in keeping the tourista's [us] satisfied with their... More

Other than the lower price this is similar to any high rise resort. Lots of pool, lots of Americans, nice rooms, no wifi in many rooms, nice bar, check was easy. $104 for what would be $350 in the US. Not much feel of Mexico and no need to speak Spanish. Too fancy for me but a damn nice place.

With organic clothes, organic food and ocean view, Sanoviv rocks as a first class spa destination. We loved the food prepared from local ingredients and the effects of clean water, air and a quiet atmosphere allow profound relaxation and detoxing away from the urban setting most of us endure the rest of the year. We will return when we can.... More

I have not been to Rosarito in over 5 years and we decided to go as a last minute get away for the day. Hours kinda nervous since we had heard all of the commotion in the past of the murders, drug deals, and other crazy events. However needless to say it has changed for the best. We went down... More
