This place is amazing for an evening dinner at sunset. The owner is a fantastic host, the food exquisite, the staff friendly, and the views magnificent. They had live music and dancing with a well stocked bar. Look forward to returning!

The desk will loan you a box fan and in July it was cool enough we did not miss the ac. The grounds are beautiful but not dog-friendly. They might claim to have wifi - don't believe it. Price is flexiable but you have to work for it

For starters La Fonda is maybe 25-30 miles south of the town/city Rosarito Beach. But, the drive on down is alongside the ocean is very pleasant. From November to February has Grey Whales are migrating south and are easily visible. From late March to late April they are there again, except that are heading north this time back to the... More

La Fonda has been around for over 50 years. Located 30 km before Ensenada...it is a waterfront gem. DMITRY puts on the best brunch by far. Excellent service & very easy on the pocket. On the free road just before La Mision. He also has rooms. Go in through the south door.

The food was fabulous, the views unsurpassed! Sarah & Dimitris were so welcoming and charming hosts to be back with their hotel was a treat. Sarah has made the most beautiful Beverly Hills style spa at the resort. If only we had known they were back with the hotel we would have stayed here. Instead we stayed 15 mins north... More

We came down to celebrate a birthday. Really enjoyed our stay. The food was delicious! The Prime rib, lobster and the chile verde were my favorites as well as the bar steak special. Awesome views all around. Great beach! The Swedish massage was amazing!

LaFonda restaurant is like a historical monument. I hear it has been around for ages, and that the stars from Hollywood use to frequent here in days gone by. We sat outside on the balcony overlooking the sea, and it was such a peaceful and beautiful sight. The food was simple and tasty to be sure. I don't know what... More

Stayed here for a night this past weekend, haven't stayed here in years and am so glad I came back. Ocean front rooms with private balconies and a fireplace starting at $80. Clean comfy beds, nicely updated rooms. $15 unlimited buffet with cocktails on Sundays. Highly recommend coming here!
