My wife and I booked a three day stay based on the glowing reports on Trip Advisor. Perhaps they were true at one time, but we had an extremely bad experience. The staff was ill trained and apathetic. The resort had far fewer amenities than advertised. Our room was not ready when we arrived, so we were told we could wait a the poolside restaurant, but that was not allowed because we were wearing street clothes, not swimsuits. We talked and elected to move to the Penasco del Sol, where we were greeted warmly and had a great time at half the price.

A few days after we returned home, a fraudulent charge showed up on the credit card used to book the room. The charge was from Paris, France, and luckily the credit card company flagged it and contacted us immediately. That card us used rarely, and the only recent use was with the Sororan Sky.

It is a shame that this beatiful facility so poorly manged. Book at your own risk!

I had the most amazing vacation over Memorial Day weekend. I rented a 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom condo on the 8th floor of the resort through Seaside Mexico. The staff was pleasant and made check-in very easy. The condo had a wrap around balcony with the most breathtaking views of the Sea of Cortez where you can watch the sunsets in the evening. The resort had a state of the art fitness center, swim up bar, and water slide. The beach front access was also a huge plus. My family will continue to visit this resort throughout the summer. We were so impressed with the professional and courteous staff at the front desk. They helped us pick out places to go and even recommended special excursions that were available.

Room Tip: The 8th floor corner unit was amazing.I would highly recommend because you have panoramic views of S...

Right on Sandy Beach- the best beach location in Rocky Point. This is the newest of the 4 Sonoran condo projects and well maintained. The pools are excellent with georgous beach views. No long walk thru the property to get to the beach. But no restaurant at the property, although plenty are nearby. The units are very modern, probably more so than your home. Wireless is slow, but works (use Skype for telephone).

Room Tip: rooms on West side are quieter. lots of noise from kids pool/slide and trailer park next door on Eas...

Beautiful penthouse we stayed in room 1510 over memorial day weekend. While the condo was very nice it was not cleaned for our arrival old q tips deodorant caps and other items that didn't belong to us. It was Friday the beers were flowing so we said what the heck. Well it only got worse room was not made up when I inquired they said it was too late in the day had to beg for new towels. At check in we also were only given 2 keys with 4 couples they said it was all they had? The next day after another argument i got one more key but still never 4 which left one couple without a key. We were always out of toilet paper, paper towels, dish towels etc. Here is the kicker after spending 70.00 on some beautiful shrimp the grill was broken and looked like it had been like that for a while so we delayed cooking them one day while that was a mistake as the fridge did not keep them cold go figure. While we enjoyed out time in puerto Pensaco we will be returning to Las Palomas where we had stayed the last 6 years going to PP. Avoid the headache and stay at Las Paloma's

When friends found out we were going to Puerto Penasco, MX, for a few days of fun in the sun, they looked at us like we were insane. “What???? Don’t you two know they cuts heads off down there and leave bodies in trash bags along the side of the road!!!!” Yes. We were aware that there were some problems in MX with the drug cartels leaving body parts here and there, but that was more interior MX, not Puerto Penasco which is located in the Mexican state of Sonora, about a 7 hour drive from our home in Prescott, AZ. So we packed a few things, filled the ice chest, and off we went.

The drive was a piece of cake. The border crossing was easy. The Mexican highway was a beautiful drive. We were lucky enough to be witness to the saguaro cacti in full bloom!

When we arrived at The Sonoran Sky Resort, they were expecting us. We were given our parking pass, keys and wrist bands at the guard shack and directed to the underground parking. (Underground parking is wonderful. It can get VERY hot in the summer months.) We were in a penthouse one bedroom unit on the top floor of the resort.

Our condo was glorious! We had a large living room with a big flat screen TV (Didn’t watch it once!), a beautiful high-end granite/stainless steel kitchen, one bedroom with a very comfortable bed, and a huge deck that overlooked The Sea of Cortez.

Since we were on a reconnaissance mission to check out the resort, we only spent three nights, two full days on this first visit. Next time, we will stay for at least a week!! The weather was perfection. The air temperature was abut 85-degrees with some humidity, but not too bad. . (I understand it gets VERY warm in summer months.) My husband, a surfer from way back, spent hours lolling in the 75-degree Sea of Cortez. There was no surf at all, but wonderful, turquoise water in which to swim.

We only left the resort one time to head down to Old Puerto Malecon in search of a ceramic sun to hang on our fence at home. (We found two!) We also had dinner at Mary’s, a restaurant recommended by the HOA director at Sonoran Sky, Marcos. Absolutely delicious! The freshest seafood you could ever want. Go to Mary’s!

Will we go back to The Sonoran Sky? Without a doubt, but this time we will stay much longer!

My family and I just got back to the states from staying at the Sonoran Sky in Rocky Point. The view from this condo is just breathtaking. And its VERY nice having the outdoor sink on the patio. Very convenient. The room and lobby was very clean, great service the whole time we were there. This is the 4th time I've stayed in Rocky Point but the first in this condo. And after this trip I am definitely looking forward to going back soon. Rocky Point has so much to do for everyone. You're bound to find something you love.

The location is beautiful and the views are incredible but no restaurant or pool beverage service as we were told there was. Condo we stayed in was marginal at best. Not very clean.
