We have been spoiled for any other place! We have been coming for over 7 years now and have stayed in most of the rooms. Tony, Nelly and Bill always make sure we are taken care of. They are the most lovely people and will go out of their way to make sure you feel at home. Marty and Jill are wonderful if you want to learn how to kite. We can't say enough good things about the place, the beach, the town and the people. Thanks for another great trip! xxoo, Kirsten and Marty

Stayed there because we were looking for accomodation for another night. That was great. We would have stayed there the entire time if we would have know that place. Highly recommended. Very nice grounds, great restaurant, plus rooftop bar, great rooms.

I had such a wonderful stay here. Big shout out to Nelly who is such a gracious host, helpful, friendly, and professional. The setting amongst the beach is perfect, complimented by the amazing landscaping on the property. The food is fresh, local, and gourmet. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean and well maintained with nice amenities such as a fridge, drinking water, and coffee machine in room. I definitely recommend renting a car but the location is an ideal jumping off point for whatever your interests are - ocean going or land based. I met several other guests who have been frequenting the area and the hotel for many years, it is easy to see why and I look forward to returning soon and for many years to come. Thank you all!!

This is our 18th year coming to this area and this Hotel. I have led 2 Yoga Retreats here. Tony & Bill have been nothing but accommodating to our needs. If you are looking for deep rest, kite-boarding, kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling or just dipping in the water out in front of your room come! The food is literally some of the best food I’ve ever eaten in my life! They hire local chefs from the area. You get 3-4 course meals for dinner. Breakfast & Lunch are included. You can also book tours to see the whale sharks, whales or to the local islands. Day trips include: Bahia de los suenos, Punta Arenas coral reef, La Paz & Espritu Santos & Cerralvo Islands. Or just hang out and snorkel in front of Hotel! Renting a car is preferable. We also brought our daughter with us every year. She loves it here. I cannot say enough good things about this quiet, homey Eco-Resort. You will feel like a local here.

We stayed for three days. When we arrived, Tony was waiting for us. He is great and anything you need was fulfilled. He made us feel so welcome. He showed us 3 bungalows which we could choose from. And we chose the one with the most privacy, a beautiful view and three places to sit and enjoy the ocean view. We had sunbeds which we often used in the afternoons. We had breakfast at the little restaurant. It was freshly prepared. Eggs made to order with coffee and juice and a great plate of perfectly cut fruit. This is a place we would visit again when in the area. The beaches here are great for people like us who love to do long beachwalks. There are lots of kiters, nice to watch.

It is a remote kite surfing resort near La Paz Baja. I don’t kite but I went to relax. Loved it. Roma are great a clean. The food cooked by locals was exquisite. They have a daily special. Sometimes there is a choice. The bar is self serve and you just write down what you had. Tony the manager is so very helpful. He arranged for the taxi to and from the airport. I plan on going again once Covid has released us from bonding.

Uncomfortable owner to staff dynamic – one of the owners criticized the property manager in front of us (for not giving us a tour when we asked to do it later, as we wanted to rest for a minute in our bungalow). This seemed absolutely not worth criticism and particularly uncomfortable given that the racial undertones (of an expat property owner and Mexican employee). The bungalows were nice, altho the layout is confusing (coffee maker is in the bathroom right next to the sink??). The nearby beach is great for kite surfing but otherwise unspectacular. The overall price was quite high given the lack of resort facilities and comparable price points in most of Baja. The staff and the food are great. The honesty bar is a good touch. The ceilings of the buildings are beautiful. There were definitely some nice parts, but overall I wouldn't recommend.

Undoubtedly, VENTANA BAY RESORT is the best place in La Ventana if you are looking for relaxation and tranquility, next to a perfect kite spot. The facilities are lovely, and the rooms are comfortable, clean, and cozy. From the first moment, all the staff make you feel as if they were your family, as if you were in your own home, but not harassing. That is a feeling that in very few places you can achieve. And for kitesurfing the spot is great, not much people in the water, good environment, and very well-mannered. Highly recommended!

I just finished my third trip here. Absolutely fabulous for kiteboarding, reliable sideshow winds and clear and reasonably warm water (for winter). The staff and facilities are top-notch; food is very good and the winter weather is usually ideal. Great job Bill, Antonio, Marty, Roberto, Jill and the ladies in the kitchen!

My wife and I stayed at Ventana Bay Resort for seven days in late December, including the Christmas holiday. The resort is a visual delight, with unique dome-topped buildings, colorful tilework and masterfully-executed stonework. All this is beautiful, but the stars of the show are the blue ocean water, green mountains, and Cerralvo Island (aka Jacques Cousteau Island) offshore, which changes color in the shifting light. While the resort is a great place to just relax, the focus of most of the guests (or one (plus) of each party) is kiteboarding. During our stay, the wind was robust and the kites were out from mid-morning to late afternoon. The on-site kiteboarding school features cutting edge equipment that customers can rent or use in lessons. I was a complete novice, but kiting instructors Marty and Roberto helped me make rapid progress. They were highly skilled, patient, and fun to be around. We ate most breakfasts and lunches at Cisco's, the on-site restaurant. The food was high-quality, mostly Mexican, and delivered with a smile by Carla and the excellent staff. The restaurant does not typically serve dinner, but there were two exceptions during our stay, "Mexican Meal" on the 23rd and a Christmas meal on the 25th. Both were outstanding. It was a pleasure to enjoy margaritas served up by the multi-talented kite instructors and meet other guests and local visitors at these events. A special shout-out to Toni, the manager who keeps the resort running efficiently, and who offered great recommendations for dinner at local restaurants. All of the staff were wonderful and we appreciated their efforts to make our stay enjoyable. Adios, amigos--see you next time!
