We had the best stay at Villa Sto. Nino! We were in the penthouse and it was perfect for our family of 5. We couldn’t ask for better accommodations or hospitality. Everyone was so helpful and welcoming. The location can’t be beat as you can walk to everything. One of the best places we’ve stayed on our travels. We can’t recommend highly enough!

Perfect spot in Loreto —- in town near restaurants, coffee, music and shops. Oralia is so kind and helpful, assisted with kayak and SUP to the beach. Highly recommend. Super clean, and the WiFi is very good. Already booked a week for the holidays, excited to return to Loreto

Villas del Santo Nino I want to take a minute to give praise to Villas del Santo Nino in Loreto. We have stayed here a couple of times and enjoy it even more each time. This time we spent almost a month with our kids (6mo and 2.5yo). The Datil I was just perfect for us, it has 2 rooms and everything for us to live there and also feel like we are on vacation! The hosts Oralia & Francisco couldn't be better. They acknowledged every concern we had (which weren't many) and met every expectation we had while in Loreto. The location is perfect, about a block from the Malecon (boardwalk) and only steps from many restaurants and the town center. They have a few common areas including a BBQ and outdoor eating area, a beautiful sitting area with small library & a hammock garden. The property is kept clean and tidy at all times, the beautiful flowers and plants look great and add to the beauty of Villas del Santo Nino. They have a fleet of bikes for your use! They organized a dinner to be cooked in their garden that far exceeded our expectations. We asked if we could have dinner cooked for us one night and the result was a gorgeous feast for almost 20 people for a very reasonable price. The chef and assistants came with a BBQ, chairs, tables, and a couple people helping. The food was incredible and there was plenty of it! We'll definitely do this next time we are in Loreto. They have a few helpers that take care of the property, Jessy is the most awesome person we could imagine. She is very busy keeping the grounds clean and tidy. She helped us with our kids and we can't say enough good about her! The hosts are very classy people and allow you to enjoy your vacation, they are also available for anything from requests to advice for what restaurant to eat at! They truly are the best hosts we have stayed with. Their house is removed enough that we would go days without seeing them. We can't say enough about Santo Nino, we hope to get back to Loreto and stay here.

The location is excellent, near the sea and the Mission. The hosts are very friendly and seek to make the stay as pleasant as possible. Close to good restaurants, it is an ideal place to be in Loreto. I understand that you can stay for a weekend or for a few months

Loreto, Mexico8 contributions8 helpful votes
My husband and I travelled around Baja for 5 weeks last January. We both fell in love with Loreto but particularly Villa Santo Niño. Our hosts, Francisco and Oralia were the perfect hosts, paying close attention to details and making sure we had everything we needed. The studio and the grounds were spotless and the kitchen was equipped with everything you could think of. The studio was located just a few minutes walk to the central plaza and to the beach on the Sea of Cortes. We had access to bikes, kayaks, and we could enjoy our morning coffee in the beautiful surrounding gardens. We are already planning to return next year:)

Sto Nino has a special place in my heart. The warmth of the owners, the charm of the rental units, the fabulous central location, between the central plaza and the Sea of Cortez, all come together to make for the perfect vacation rental. Chato and Oralia are perfect hosts who greet each day with a smile, help you with your plans and are enthusiastic to hear about your adventures! They have become my family in Loreto.

We love coming to Loreto and staying with Oralia and Chato. We wanted 6 months but my wife passed away. Her 3minths here last year were some of her happiest. I returned this year at her request with gifts.

Villas Santo Nino are a true home from home. The owners / managers are called Oralia and Chatto and they both go out of their way to make your stay with them as comfortable as can be. All the accommodations are very well equipped plus good Internet and TV. They also have a collection of coolboxes, collapsible chairs plus snorkelling gear for the use of guests, plus bicycles and kayaks again for the use of guests.

An appreciation of the Villa Santo Nino begins with the location. Less than a block from the town square in Loreto and a short distance from the Sea of Cortez the Villa's are in walking distance from great restaurants in Loreto including those with views of the Ocean. The grounds of the Villa's are a beautiful desert garden, when you leave your Villa your are surrounded by beauty. We have been in two apartments and both were furnished and decorated as if they were some ones home rather than a rental Apartment. The kitchen is furnished with every thing one could possibly need. Equally as important is the genuine care and friendliness of the owners who are always willing to assist their guests.

One block from the main square, two blocks to the beach. Close to all the restaurants and shops and the apartment is fully equipped and spotless. Francisco was always available and helpful. This was our second visit to Loreto and we will stay there again if we go back. Can't think of a better place to stay!
