“Home away from home,,,a most excellent place to stay while in Loreto Mexico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2012

Hola mi amigos:

I had the pleasure to stay at EL TIBURON CASITA'S in February for 10 nights on a scuba trip to Loreto Mexico. It was recommended to me by my diver friend who runs Dolphin Dive Shop, he said it would be a great place to stay for me as I was alone on this particular trip.

He was so right,,,what a great place,,,why I have never stayed here before on my previous trips to Loreto baffles me. The Casita's ( or Gringo language, Cabins ) are fully equipped with Fridge, Oven, Microwaves, TV's, ( although no cable TV) and King and or Queen size beds, some even have extra twins. The Washrooms have full size showers, and are very spacious.

The rooms remind me of a sort of glorified Bachelor suites,,,very clean and tidy and cleaned everyday. There is a smaller size pool and lounge deck and a GAS BBQ should you decide to cook your food outside,,,maybe you caught a fish and want to share with your other Casita mates,,,this is a great place to meet new people and make new friends!

El Tiburon is located in the heart of Loreto, close to restaurants, stores and markets, you can stock up and cook your own food or enjoy local Mexican cuisine a stone throws away from your casita.

The entire place is gated and walled off so your valuables are very safe in your room,,Loreto is a VERY safe place to be,,,you can walk anywhere anytime and never feel anything but comfortable. The people are friendly and you will always get a " Hola" from everyone.

All the casitas have ceiling fans and air conditioning although you will find the AC hardly ever needs turning on. The host " Liz Bracken" will make you feel right at home and will do her best to see you are wanting for nothing.

I recommend El Tiburon to anyone who wants to relax and chill out,,sit by the pool and read,,,go for walk, the beach and fisherman's wharf is 10 min away, or go shopping,,whatever you decide to do, is easy access from El Tiburon.

Highly recommended in my books, I will make El Tiburon my place to stay when I am in Mexico from now on!

Hasta Luego
Gracias

Room Tip: Any of the Casitas are good,,,even if you have a larger group they are all close together

My wife and another couple rented two rooms for a week at El Tiburon Casitas and had a wonderful experience. Our friends were in "the apartment" while we stayed in casita 5. Very nice amenities, full kitchen with large refrigerator and stove, A/C (though we never used it as the weather was perfect during our stay) and a very comfortable living environment. The location can't be beat. It's near dozens of great restaurants and only a block from the marina and waterfront. We were out of the room quite a bit enjoying the charms of the area but also had a chance to enjoy some of Ivan's cooking and the beautiful roof patio as well as the nice shady palapa near the pool. Liz is just great and one can tell Ivan enthusiastically likes serving the guests. And, yes, Lucy the dog is pretty special. I highly recommend El Tiburon Casitas if you're in Loreto.

We just got back yesterday from a week long vacation in Loreto. We stayed at El Tiburon, and it was wonderful. The units are spacious, comfortable and very centrally located in town.There was never any question about our stuff being safe in our room.
Liz the owner is very helpful and Ivan, her assistant, is also very helpful and knowledgeable. Ivan can setup any activity you envision, and his cooking skills are superb. We would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: Unit #4 is very nice.

... I would!!!
We stayed 5 nights at El Tiburon in casitas # 3 and loved every minute! We took a couple tours with Ivan and had an excellent and delicious dinner prepared by him. I can't say enough about this place, from the comfortable castias to the 'old town' flavor of Loreto, great food and shops and the friendly people. We will diffidently be back to stay at El Tiburon Castias and Lorecto!

Stayed for two weeks. Quiet residential location in very close walking distance to both the marina and town centre amenities. Secure gated property. The free standing casitas are fairly large and have full kitchen facilities for self catering. Spotlessly clean and reasonably priced. Lucy, the dog, is a delightful character.

I live this place! Wonderful casitas! Great room with little kitchen, good beds, beautiful patio area. Best of all are the people! Liz was so great giving advice on places to go see, eat and things to do. Ivan is an amazing cook and helped us arrange outings. I can't wait to go back!

So close, yet a world away. Only a couple of hours from LAX and the hustle and bustle of what we have (unfortunately) become used to melts away. Life slows down to the perfect pace. I love this place and I can't imagine ever staying with anyone else besides Liz and her awesome dog Lucy! The made us feel very welcome, but are not obtrusive in the least. Liz's employee Ivan is a Chef that will cook for you if requested (Great meal!) or take you on a sight seeing tour. His uncle Nacho is a boat captian that took us on a trip to the islands for snorkeling and swimming...... Not to be missed! We could walk everywhere from El Tiburon. Didn't need a car at all! We went with a group of six and had a blast. Already planning our next trip! We were there in Nov. ,and didn't need the AC at all, but nice to know all the casita's have them. Super clean and cute. Muchas Gracias Liz and Lucy......we'll be back soon! CK
