... came over with the news he picked up on his satellite from Phoenix. Apparently it was a drug cartel situation and there were 5 killed in the apartments down the beach including those in the truck we saw. In hindsight, driving around yesterday we saw a silver Rolls Royce with oversized tires on it driving in the the direction of the hotels...something really out of place and you have to wonder if they were not part of the final scenario.....more rumors to monger.
... is in the middle of nowhere. The resort is on the Sea of Cortez, about six miles from the road. The resort has three floors but no elevator which was really hard for John and Bertha. We had adjoining rooms and the main room had a small kitchen.
The wind was blowing and the temperature was only in the 10c range. The beach stretched for miles both ways but it was too windy to walk on the beach ...
Puerto Penasco, MX., population approx. 45,000 unless its American Thanksgiving and then it probably doubles. Our friend Norm spends time down here every winter and told us that he always reserves his spot on the beachwall a year ahead of time. I like to plan ahead or at least not to be surprised so I phoned down to the Playa Bonita RV park to inquire about a spot.....no problema senior, lots of space. Well we show up and the place is wall to wall with Americans down for the ...
... pounded us with rain, hail, snow, and wind. So, we only made it as far as Raton, New Mexico, right over the CO border. Saturday, we kept heading south through Albuquerque, Socorro, and Deming. From there, we headed west through Tucson and went to cross the border at Lukeville.
I visited Juarez, MX twice with church groups many years ago, and during those trips, I walked across the border multiple times. The trips were ...
... shed the sweat shirt.. Per the fish finder we were in 85 ft of water and while we anchored and fished, 5 seals showed up, and played for us for an hour or so... we had several pelicans around us the whole time and tried a couple of times to pull our fish off line as we tried to land them.... and on the trip in we had at least a dozen of dolphins swim alongside the boat for 30 min or so.... It's a thrill to get into this ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sonoran Spa Resort at Sandy Beach Puerto Peņasco
Beautiful Resort, condos are beautifully decorated with every amenity you can possibly need during your stay to include washer and dryer. Restaurant was delicious and Spa was to die for! Ladies get ready to be pampered at a very reasonable cost. Enjoy!
Little known paradise
My family just returned from a weekend trip to the Sonoran Spa Resort (7/25-7/27/2003) and it was the best vacation we have had. The condo was beautifully decorated and "homey" and provided all of the amenities for a comfortable stay. The resort is almost self contained as we dined at the restaurant, used the work-out room, enjoyed both the ocean and resort pool, as well as enjoyed the game rooms, tennis courts and email capabilities. We are planning our next stay at this beautiful resort in the near future and consider this "spot" the best ocean vacation of all we have taken.
Excellent with only two caveats
I will agree with the other reviews on this site that the Sonoran Spa is a great vacation destination.However, we rented a 1 bedroom. The building where the one bedrooms are housed is set further back. No big deal; the view of the ocean is still nice but the construction site at the Sonoran Sea which is adjacent to the Sonoran Spa is quite noisy.Once the construction is completed in November is will be a lot nicer.Secondly, our room did not have a phone. So if you do reserve a suite there make sure there is a phone. Not knowing any better I charged a call on the payphone in the lobby and had to pay $29.95 for the first 5 minutes. Outrageous!I was told later they do sell phone cards at the Hotel for 5 dollars good for 5 minutes.
Sonoran Spa Resort - Fabulous!
A1, A+, AAA, 5 Stars - We found the Sonoran Spa Resort on the web at rockypointres.com. Our visit to this resort in Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point) Mexico was outstanding. The resort is right on the beach. Our 2 bedroom condo on the top (8th) floor had a covered terrace looking right out over the ocean. They also have 1 and 3 bedroom condos. Our condo included everything we needed in the kitchen for cooking, all linens, even a washer and dryer. They told each condo is decorated differently. All we had to bring was our beach towels. The grandkids kept busy and happy in the pools, jacuzzis and the ocean. The beach is a nice sandy beach (no big rocks, like some of the other beaches at Puerto Penasco). There is a mini market and a game/video room for the kids. The restaurant on site is open for dinner Thursday thru Monday. We rented a small sailboat right at the resort. They have other things too, like beach umbrellas, kayaks, horseshoes and boogie boards. So there was plenty to keep the kids entertained. We will definitely go back. The price is very reasonable. We have told all our friends about Sonoran Spa Resort. It's the best!!!
The best and most beautiful vacation my family has had for a ling time.
Salt water pool with large shallows for young children. Clean and secure beaches (and we saw lots of dolphins and other sea life).
Perfect rooms, clean and well decorated. An absolute blast for a family with young children!
Let's keep the Sonoran Spa a secret!
Sonoran Spa actually exceeded my expectations in many areas. While there were a few minor negatives, the positives of this great property far exceeded any problems. Our one bedroom unit (#602) was nicely appointed, clean and a great view of the beach and pool area. This unit has a security door which enabled us to open the back door and let the ocean breezes filter through. No amenity was missed, but I suggest you bring your own pillows (unless you like flat pancake type pillows).
Property was well-maintained, several security guards and offered a few extras: nice gym, computer room with free internet access, and a comfortable lobby. Didn't try the spa or the restaurant so no comment there. The location is the biggest plus - nice "rock-free" beach and away from the hubbub of downtown Puerto Penasco.
Some negatives: as indicated in earlier posts, the front desk staff is rather uncaring, but only an issue at checkin and checkout, so don't let it ruin your trip.
Pool is a bit cloudy, but a welcome retreat from the heat.
The center building where all the one bedroom units are seems to get the brunt of the pool noise and construction noise from the Sonoran Sea Resort going up next door. Fortunately the ocean "drowns" out a lot of the racket with the waves crashing.
Don't spread the word too far - let's keep Sonoran Spa our own seaside escape secret!!
The best hotel in Rocky Point!!
What an amazing and beautiful hotel! Just built, rooms are totally loaded up with everything and very luxurious. Our 2 bed/2ba condo had everything-washer/dryer, dishwasher, VCR/DVD combos in each bedroom, fully furnished. Had 2 pools one heated, each room had a nice patio. We were on the 8th floor right on the beach had an AMAZING view and even the master bedroom was oceanview. Truly gorgeous place to stay-worth the $$. Security is excellent too and that is important when much of the city is very run down and sometimes tourist are targets for thefts and car vandalisms and other crime. 5 stars!!
We just returned from the Sonoran Spa Resort. Each condo is individually decorated. Ours was 704, and it was very lovely and clean.
Friends got another unit, which was quite uninspired in the decorating.
The spa was very relaxing for massage, manicures and pedicures, with the pedicure chairs facing out to the beautiful ocean view. Front desk service was another thing. Check in was already late day at 4:00pm, but one room was not ready until 5:00pm, and then the wrong key was given to our friends, and it took at least another hour for someone to figure out how to let them in their room! No one was very concerned about this, either. There is a great restaurant, but it is not open for breakfast, it opens at noon. We would definitely stay here again, and hope that the longer it is open, the more that the service will continue to improve.
We stayed at the beautiful Sonoran Spa resort for the first time this past weekend, 6/12-6/16. You just can't express it enough in words of how gorgeous it is! To hear the ocean waves at night with your oversized arcadia door open while you sleep (we were on the 5th floor). It was wonderful! We rented some quads, went out to the reefs for a morning walk, couldn't get the kids out of the pool except to swim in the ocean....which helps give mom and dad some time alone on the sandy beach. It's amazing when you start talking about it and how many people have never been! they're thinking twice after we start elaborating about our trip. We'll be back again, soon I hope!
My wife and I spent the weekend here, and we didn't want to leave. The room was completely furnished with just about every amenity you can imagine, including computer. The atmosphere was very pleasant as were the staff and inhabitants. We will definitely be returning in the Fall with our 3 kids. We Loved It!
