Very attentive staff and amenities. Clean and cute rooms.

Upon arrival I was greeted by the guard, all personnel was very friendly and helpful. There was lots of restaurants with in walking distance. I would definitely stay there again.

Everything was super clean, but the plumbing is an issue, but that seems to be all of Ensenada in general. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Location and staff were great. Rooms are dated. Pool and bar were nice.

The hotel has a great location and very convenient amenities that are in room. Bed was comfortable and clean and the bathroom had instant hot water. Toilet flushing pressure was also great.

The hotel is at the end of downtown so was out of the busy town bustle, but made it easy to walk into downtown or to the harbor.

We have free breakfast at El Rey Sol Restaurant it was really good. The hotel is ok and the locations is very good. Pool was fun for the family.

Nice place great location staff was friendly and helpful free breakfast

The staff here was attentive and professional, the front desk representative, the security guard and the bartender all were courteous and helpful. The check-in process is simple and straightforward, and politely asked me which language I would like to continue the check-in process. (I could have continued in Spanish but after a 3.5 hour drive I don't think I was up to it.) During my stay I was provided vouchers for a free drink at the bar and the off site restaurant for breakfast. The room was clean and cozy with ample privacy provided by the design of the hotel. Downtown and the marina is within walking distance. I didn't have to drive or find parking again, everything was close by. I travelled with my friend on this trip and she also enjoyed her stay here. She like me, liked the design of the hotel and the room.

This place is nicely situated near the beach, with plenty of restaurants and taco stands nearby. Very comfortable room with a working hair dryer and iron. Very quiet at night as well, which is a huge plus. Biggest pro about this place? Hotel staff is very accomodating! Everyone at the front desk and the security guard was very nice and helpful to us.

The hotel staff is terrible. I leave my hotel key inside my room and the lady charge me 90 pesos for a reposition.

Posada El Rey Sol: We rented 2 rooms, one for ourselves and a larger to bless another family. 3-story charming hotel with Elevator (not noted in other reviews so I expected only stairs). Unique decor for each room. We slept comfortably in our queen bed. Lovely modern bath facilities wall dispensers for soap/shower gel, shampoo, conditioner. Nice hot showers and good towels. Hotel is just off the tourist street so not as noisy. Walking distance to everything! We liked that we could park the car in the parking lot (inside area of the hotel) and leave it. Parking can be a tight squeeze for big vehicles. Helpful Reviews had warned us of late arrivals not finding parking. Family liked trying the lovely unheated swimming pool, and the warmish hot tub. Enjoyed the nice upper terrace area for our picnic. FYI: although encouraged to drink only bottled water, the rooms provided one bottle per person per STAY, not day. Of course, it's nice that they did that much, (but for that room price?)... and water is sold all around. BREAKFAST: Coupons are given for Limited but Adequate Breakfast Options at the lovely El Rey Sol restaurant, but only for occupants of certain higher priced (4-person?) rooms, and I heard only 2-4 coupons. ASK about your room. DO eat in that restaurant, and note the History of the place! It's a lovely place, and I found it odd that they played bar music... SO, if they're playing other music, request kindly that they change to the more elegant older classic music of Mexico...after all, that's where you are! They love changing it for you, and love talking about those classic musicians, too! Great staff at hotel front desk and at the restaurant.

The hotel is in a great location. Service was nice. The hotel had a problem with the water system was not able to flush toilet and no shower. It was fixed in about 1.30 hours. Overall nice experience.

Room was excellent and comfortable. I can't complain but there are two things they could of done better. When I called to make the reservation I asked them if they offered an extra service for a special occasion, they said yes we do, so I gave them my credit card and they sent me a confirmation. When we arrived I couldn't wait for my wife to see the room fill with roses, bottle of wine, chocolates, etc.. (It was our anniversary) but then nothing, no accommodations were made. I was mad, and went to the office to complain and they said they never saw the confirmation. Very disappointed, and the other thing was the jacuzzi was not even hot. Besides those two things, room was clean and good for the price

The hotel was ideally suited for our trips to La Bufadora, and to the waterfront to catch our boat to see the whales. Wonderful restaurant for breakfast right across the street. The room was very clean, and cozy. Wonderful shower, and all the standard amenities. Beautiful television. We would all come back in the future.

We stayed in what they call the "two floor apartment," which is a little misleading. Yes, you open the front door on the first floor, and immediately walk up to the second floor where the rooms are. There is nothing on the first floor except the beginning of the stairway. The quality of the room was the worst I have ever stayed. Thin, mismatched, 20 year old carpet, old stale couch, exposed pvc pipe for plumbing. The second bedroom had no windows. The front door was locked only by a deadbolt. If you were inside the apt, you needed to lock the deadbolt from the inside. They did not have two keys until second day of our trip, and that key did not lock from inside. Not sure about quality of other rooms. Staff are friendly and location good. Fast pass to cross border made it all worth it. Would likely stay somewhere else next time.

"Breakfast Included" was " full value!...room and internet very good;best hotel in the BAJA PENNINSULA;ROOM WAS CLEAN AND MODERNIZED;staff was friendly...we would recommend!

Close to the waterfront and the commercial area, can walk almost everywhere and not too loud. Good value.
