“10 Day Casita Stay”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Just returned from a 10 day stay at this charming gated Casita compound. This is an ideal spot for a lady flying solo to have privacy, be able to relax, and yet have the convenience of the nearby beach, shops, plaza and restaurants all within walking distance. There are some beautiful photography locations near the Casitas. I never felt afraid staying or going anywhere alone. The internet and kitchenette were more than adequate; shared lovely meals around the pool with others guests – IF that is what I wanted to do. The place was amazingly clean! I will be back!

Thank you for pointing out the safety of our small community and gated Hotel grounds. I am glad as a single woman traveler you were comfortable getting all around our village on your own. And Yes! we strive to be the most modern and clean casitas in town! Thank You for noticing our hard work, well equipped full kitchens, and adequate internet.
Many people do enjoy the intimate setting with just 4 casitas and getting to make new friends and share fresh fish and BBQ meals in the patio area. . But if you want privacy, like you say, not a problem either!

This trip marks the fourth time I have been a guest at the lovely ETC. As always this hotel offers a calm and relaxing environment near the heart of Loreto. Clean, clean, clean. Tranquillo!! Everything in order and just the way I like it.

When Liz is present the quality of the experience is enhanced by her knowledge of the area, recommendations, and helpful assistance. She is intelligent, thoughtful, kind, and engaging.

On this trip, while Liz was away, we did have some minor inconveniences regarding maid service and hotel management.

That being said I had a wonderful time staying at ETC and Loreto and would recommend it to almost anyone. Liz, thanks once again for making my stay a pleasant one. Looking forward to returning next year!!

Room Tip: Seriously, all rooms are very nice. Talk with Liz and she can help you decide which would meet your...

It was great to have you and your fishing buddy back for the 5th year in a row!
That speaks volumes to us in that you trust that our Hotel will be just as good as the last visit!
I do live next door to the Casitas year round and provide personal service when in Loreto. For the few weeks each year I am gone, I always hope that the staff will be perfect. No business I have ever owned can count on all employees 100% it seems! I built the resort small enough to be able to own and manage mostly by myself and I do plan to continue that for quite a while!

Great place to enjoy privacy and still relax with others. Very secure, convenient to beach, shops, restaurants, etc. Enjoyed relaxing with other guests and having them share their dinner with the catch of the day.
Liz makes sure that everything is clean, neat and helps you with local suggestions to make every part of your trip a success.
Been there before and am anxious to return again.

Room Tip: All of the Casitas are great. If you prefer American coffee, just bring some with you.

Thank you for your response! I am so glad you found our place quiet, clean and safe. You pointed out a popular feature here-- lots of our guests get together in our intimate setting to BBQ their fresh catch at night together and make friends. But if you want privacy, easy to do that too.
And definitely bring your camera! Loreto is a photographer's Paradise!

Best decision I ever made. For less than $85 USD a night gives you plenty of amenities.
Pool, WI-FI-, full kitchen, housekeeping, best location in Loreto. Walking distance to beach, plaza and restaurants is about 3-5 minutes. Safe environment, free parking (if needed), dog secured to keep strangers out. Staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. Anything I needed or questions I had they had the answers.

When I return this is where I'll be staying.

Room Tip: All rooms are similar ; but decorated differently. Choose Casita 1 is 3 beds are needed.

I was looking for a place to stay on a fishing road trip my son and I were taking. We found Tiburon Casitas and we found a little slice of heaven! The location is perfectly located near the marina, near restaurants and the historic downtown plaza. No need for a car, you can walk or use one of the bikes available. The casita was spotless and well appointed. The beds were very comfortable. Liz the owner is so friendly, it was like seeing an old friend again! She really pays attention to details. Very communicative during the booking process and payment was easy. She helped us book fishing with a couple of excellent guides with good pangas. This worked out so much better than me trying to do it blindly! THANKS again Liz! I would stay here again 100%!

Room Tip: All of the casitas are great! All are near the pool!

I am so glad you and your son enjoyed Loreto and our casitas! The fishing is always fun here and we can recommend excellent local Mexican Captains year round. I am also pleased that you found the booking process easy as long as you contact us directly! We do not partner with the Hotel booking sites listed on TA and so when you plug in dates on the Trip Adviser site they will redirect you to another hotel so you HAVE to go to the top of our listing and email or call the Hotel Direct. We do provide a US phone number, so Yes! it is easy to book with us!
We look forward to having you again.

We were privileged to stay at El Tiburon again; Owner Liz is so informative, everyone friendly. The units are immaculate and are kept clean daily. There is a small pool, palapa to sit under ,chat with other guests, always fun. It was our very first anniversary, and Ivan cooked us an AMAZING dinner of lobster, sea bass, shrimp, vegies. Even the rice was awesome flavor!
Such a wonderful stay and prices so reasonable.

Room Tip: Only four casitas. two with king-sized beds, some can sleep more than two

And yes we do have 2 casitas with ca King beds and 2 multibed casitas with queen beds or we can add a single in any room for that third person or son or daughter!
We look forward to having you back for your next anniversary!

We stayed at El Tiburon and it was my first trip to Mexico. It is safe and the accommodations are first class! Liz is a wonderful hostess and a wealth of information about the area. The casitas are extremely clean, well-kept and have everything you need for a couple or family vacation. The location is within walking distance of everything you want to do in Loreto. We were there in April and the fishing was outstanding. Even the two pups that live on the property add a little something extra to your stay at El Tiburon. We can't say enough about how great this place is...go and check it out for yourself. You won't regret it!!

Room Tip: Any of the casitas are wonderful!!
