Over the years I've stayed here at least a half dozen times and it has always been enjoyable. The rooms are perhaps a little "rustic" but that just adds to the charm of the place and what the heck? It's Mexico! If you want over the top luxury, go to the Bellagio in Vegas! The rooms are split level, have a bar to sit at with a small fridge, microwave and a sink. The rooms we've stayed at have balconies that face the street and I've always liked sitting out there before the evening starts having a beer and watching life in Ensenada go by. The beds are not the most comfortable but they are suitable and anyhow as I get older most hotel room beds bother me!
A small word of warning: the rooms that are closest to the disco can be pretty noisy in the evening but I've only noticed it at the rooms adjoining the disco. Otherwise I have always found it relatively quiet and felt very safe there.
We're coming back down within the next month and I'm already really looking forward to it!
