“SAD, but a thing of the past!!!! Don't go!”
Reviewed July 21, 2008

My husband/I and our friends have gone a few times in the past. A few years ago- it was okay. It is MORE than slipping. The last few times the food has gotten worse, pool basically a hole with dirty water, thus the wives stopped going. However, the most recent time all 4 husbands' credit card info was stolen and all 4 had charges on their credit cards all over MX. The only place that all 4 gave out their cc info was Baja Mar- thus an employee. My suggestion, stay at Las Rocas up the coast and pay CASH for golf if you must play at Baja Mar. STAY AWAY is my best advice!!!!

Warning: do not use your credit card or debit card at Bajamar. There is a confirmed fraud ring there.

Myself and two other guys used our cards at this place for the golfing and it was only time we used our cards in Mexico. Everything else we paid cash.

So this was the only place that could have stolen our card information.

Next thing you know ... someone's charging up a storm in Mexico and in the US (San Ysidro) on all of our cards!

Stay away. Plus the place has gone way down. Worn down and in poor shape course wise. Ridiculous fees for such poor course conditions.

We went to Bajamar for a wedding and had a great time. Here's the problem: Three people in our group had their credit card information stolen. A coworker had been there a few weeks before and also had his card number stolen and used. I'm not suggesting not to go there, but if you use a credit card get it replaced right away.

Have been going to Bajamar for years as part of group of guys....always thought it was a nice break...being from S. Cal. Midweek special with lodging, golf, breakfast etc. is an exceptional deal. Golf course in pretty good condition..not perfect...but very good overall. Rooms clean...staff very nice...food was just fine.....all 8 of us were pleased. You might take in dinner (at least once) N. about 5 miles at LaFonda.....great place...atmosphere.

Pros - helpful staff, very clean rooms, ask for a room with a view, make the stay that more worthwile. This hotel is mostly for golfers. However, we found it nice because it was away from it all. Nice grounds, and the resturant is good too!
Cons- Mattress is very hard, decor need updating.
Other than that a very pleasant stay

Don't bother. Probably the worst golfing trip ever. The golf course was understaff and unprofessional. Not accomodating and extremely short with explanations. There were 14 of us and they tried to make us play three 4 some and 2 some. When asked why, they replied because that is the rules. Only after polite persuasion, did they allow us to play two foursome and two threesome. The food was overpriced and not tasty at all.

Hated the hotel we booked (New Port Beach Hotel), so left there and searched for another place to spend the night. Found Bajamar and paid only $15 more than our original hotel...and the Bajamar was ten times better! The beds are pretty hard and my husband and I ended up with two doubles due to the short notice. If you like golfing every day then this place would be the best to stay in the area. If you're not a golfer there isn't too much to do at the resort besides lounging by the pool, playing tennis (bring your own balls) and drinking at the bar. The food was alright, but the wait-staff act like they don't understand barely any english. La Salina is a little town a mile or two down the road and there is a public beach which is a lot of fun. After I take a few more golf lessons, I would consider going back to this resort. Very clean sheets and bathroom with a few brownish stains on the cloth headboards. More T.V. channels than usual in Mexico. Cute and quaint...Mexican dancers in the morning at breakfast. Make sure you ask for the Breakfast menu because they have a buffet and are reluctant to offer breakfast service. Check out the photos. If you want a few more, let me know.

  • Liked — Nice feeling, clean and quiet. Laid back atmosphere.
  • Disliked — Hard beds.
  • Tips/Secrets — Golfing a must here.
