“Best $550 I spent in Baja!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

This was just the relaxing week I needed! Casitas ( with a King or Queen bed) are chock full of everything you need to eat in or relax around the small but fabulous pool. Since my visit here last summer, lots of nice improvements were seen- beautiful new artwork in the rooms and lovely new pots and plants in the patios and gardens. This place gets better and better now that all buildings are complete and the finishing touches have been lovingly applied by the American owner. Fishing was good and the marina is just down the street. Orlando's restaurant and Mita Gourmet is just around the corner. I will definitely be back next summer.

Room Tip: Casita #4 has a super comfy King Bed and a fabulous bathroom. Be sure to book with the hotel directl...

I am happy you were able to take advantage of our 490/week+tx TripAdvisor summer special.
(one of the advantages of booking direct with us) Our direct email contact and website info is at the top of the TripAdvisor Listing. Our Hotel is a great value at 490-590/week , depending on the Casita and number of persons..... Looking forward to seeing you next summer!

Compared to other Loreto Hotels, the location, value and ambiance here is unmatched! Rooms are spotless, great beds and hot showers, cold A/C. It was safe, quiet, and the closest hotel to the Marina and beach.

What a wonderful place to stay. Our Casita was extremely well built and decorated. Very comfortable. Ivan cooked a great meal for a group of us one night. We look forward to staying at El Tiburon on our next trip to Loreto.

Thank You Lori and Thomas for being our guests!. We certainly look forward to hosting you again. Ivan is glad you appreciated his poolside BBQ skills and I appreciate your notice of our American quality standards in all of our Casitas, including roomy, tall showers and one flush toilets. We went to alot of work and expense to have the best built Casitas around!

My wife and I have stayed at ETC four consecutive years and continue to find it to be a very nice and comfortable place to stay. Liz, Ivan, Lucy and Sirena all contribute to make our stay there as easy as possible. New artwork and completed construction welcomed us this year and further enhanced the beauty of the grounds. The location is perfect for our needs as most everything we want is nearby. Orlando's restaurant, Mita, grocery stores, fruteria, Michoacana, cervezeria, Rey's tacos!! This place is quiet, quiet, quiet - as long as you don't mind the neighboring roosters! Peace and tranquility abound. If you want a big, noisy hotel with a restaurant and bar you will need to go somewhere else. If you want a place to relax and rest in peace stay at ETC.

Thank You for your positive review, and I hope we will see you for a fifth year in a row in 2014.
I think the neighbors just got rid of that pesky rooster! So let's hope for another quiet year here at El Tiburon!

Me and buddy booked this place for a fishing trip in July. Didn't read any reviews and was pleasantly surprised at the place. Liz, the owner is very laid back and met us later in the afternoon after we arrived. Just sitting under the palapa enjoying a cold drink she gave a us a map, and told us all the eating places. Rooms were very comfortable, everything you would need in the kitchen. The pool was right outside our door and I jumped in everyday after fishing! Would recommend it to anyone. Just blocks from the marina and main part of town too! Very convenient. Great guests and guard dogs!

Room Tip: We chose casitas #4, it doesn't get the morning sun. All rooms are just a few feet to the pool.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we are glad you were satisfied with our property and service. We try to make everyone's stay memorable. We are fortunate to have the best location in Loreto being just one short block to the Marina and malecon and 1 and a half short blocks to the Mission Plaza with its restaurants and shops!

A quiet, clean and convenient property. I fish in Loreto and this place is 3 blocks from marina and malecon. Also 2 blocks from Mission plaza which has a few restaurant. Full kitchen, which I did not use other than the refrigerator to keep the beer cool. Easy to set up reservation with Liz. Ivan the property manager was very helpful and I understand a very good cook. The one drawback is the wifi, very weak signal in the room, have to go out by the pool to get good signal. Pool is very refreshing and all the people I met there were very friendly.

We are so glad you appreciated the quiet, personal nature of our Hotel. Our location, however is just ONE short block from the Marina on Calle Davis and Agua Dulce so it is super easy to get to your fishing Panga early in the Morning! And being located just down the way from The Plaza, many eating and shopping choices are very close. You can also take our complimentary bikes out for a ride.We are sorry the Wi Fi was not better in your Casita when you were here. Our system has been recently upgraded but depending on which casita you are in and what type of device you have, occasionally it is slower than American Hotels...... and being Baja, all systems are not always running perfectly with Telmex! We do try to keep our Wi Fi running as fast as possible here in Mexico at all times and will continue to monitor this closely! Thank you for your input.

a very comfortable and clean room with bath in a gated, secure and quiet compound downtown Loreto....we only stayed one night but want to return to spend more time in this sleepy, Mexican village .....and we would not look elsewhere to find a better place to stay....you can walk to anywhere in town, enjoy numerous restaurants with excellent Mexican food, explore a historic mission and museum, check out the huge farmer's market, and drive 1 hour away to a well preserved San Javier Mission built in mid 1500's....
