We stayed in a bunglow on the cliff-side with an amazing view of the ocean. The room was in all aspects charming and somehow authentic as to how I wanted it to be - not a modern, cold, charter hotel complex. Sure there are downside to this, the shower did for instance break the second day of our stay. But...

We come to Rosarito, Mexico often and have a condo here so I cannot comment on the accommodations at La Fonda, but we love going there for Taco Tuesdays! Really good pollo tacos and Dos XX on draft is only a buck! Tacos are a buck fifty. You can't beat the atmosphere or the live entertainment by the best guitarist...

My husband and I stayed here two nites, in a room (21) off on the hillside (yes,down a path with two sets of stairs --I think we were the closest to the beach) and it was a trip down memory lane for us of the 60's generation. Funky furniture, a 3-D painting of a mermaid on the wall, handmade furniture...Nothing...

My views on La Fonda Hotel goes back thirty some years. My first stay at La Fonda was in the late 70's, you had to pay in cash (no credit cards) and in the winter the rooms had drafts through them that left you chilled to the bone! Great place to "cuddle" with a lover! You see back then there...

Me and my girlfriend stayed at La Fonda this pass weekend (12-16) and yes the place is old and rustic, but that is the beauty in it. It’s not a Hilton so if that is what you’re looking for this is not the place for you. It’s for the people looking for something different. So getting to the room (#...

First off - La Fonda is not in Rosarito, it's in La Mision which is south of Rosarito (between Ensenada and Rosarito). My wife and I ate there a couple days ago for lunch (Dec/2011). We both had seafood (fish for me, shrimp for my wife). The portions are generous and the taste was acceptable. Nothing fancy here. We didn't...

Do not stay here, my girlfriend and I got completely worked over by bed bugs. I'm nervous that the infestation was so bad that I brought them home with me, I think I am getting fresh bites; not sure but it's kind of freaking me out...never experienced anything like this. A shame, we used to love this hotel. I didn't...

La Fonda takes great care to assure our guests a pleasent and healthy stay. In regards to the issue of bed bugs I do not think you had an issue of bed bugs. We have the property sprayed by a reputable pest control company on a regular basis and also vaccuum the beds because we know people like to take...

I participated in a wine tour of the vineyards in Ensenada and as part of the 3 day tour we stayed at La Fonda. The view, the water, the beach and the buffet were all of my favorite things about this hotel. It is definitely run down and needs some upgrades. My room had a great view and a big...

I have been here several times and I can't get enough. I love the atmosphere, the view, the memories, everything. The rooms are not fancy by any means but they are clean and comfortable. The ocean views are simply amazing. If you are a young, adventerous traveler, I highly recommend this place. Be careful with those margaritas, they're the strongest...
