Dette indlæg bliver skrevet fra min telefon i bussen på vej over den mexicanske grænse, hvor vi nu har siddet i kø i 2 timer og selvom der kun er knapt 10 meter til grænsen så bevæger vi os ingen vegne, da de er sygt korrupte. Vi har betalt ca 6 dollars for at undgå at stå i kø i flere timer, men busserne holder stille og lader folk betale mere for …
... as the cruise liners come down here from San Diego full of Americans. The locals loved the fact that we were Aussie, and when we explained that we could not buy as we cannot carry they were just happy to try and talk about Australia, they are fascinated by our accent.

It doesn't matter where I travel there is no place like home. There is a smile on my face as I land in San Diego knowing that my journey is embedded in my heart.

We glimpse the beach and sort of see a bit of sun (but not really) and decide given that our ice creams were $11, we should just focus on them for the time being. So we sit in the car and eat and watch other people exercise (in a non pervy way).

Historical Traveler Reviews Festival Plaza Hotel Rosarito
It was fine
I thought the hotel was fine. It wasn't great or anything fancy, but for the price we paid we weren't expecting it to be. The room was clean, the staff was very friendly, and the atmosphere was just what i expected. We met some new people there and even ran into some old friends. I thought it was totally worth it, and i would totally stay there again.
"It's no-luxury, all fun place"
Not easy to get reservations. This place gets packed! kids love it, it's a let your hair down kinda place with lots to eat, drink, shop and party.
This was pretty much the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. For $100. a night, I felt completely ripped off. They advertise things you cannot get like hairdryers and AC, but you would think that the room would have lights! I cannot understand how that horrible IGGYs is allowed to blast their music until 2am so that even the town residents cannot sleep. This hotel gets it the worst. Partying is one thing, but disturbing a whole town is ridiculous. For $29.00 more, stay at the Rosarito Beach Hotel next door. Or if you are willing to drive further to Puerto Nuevo and not party in hellsville, stay at the New Port Beach Hotel or the condos next door to that place. Beautiful places with huge swimming pools, tennis courts, volleyball, and everything else a hotel is supposed to have. The only fun part was blowing off fireworks on Rosarito Beach down the street. Oh, and the valet parking misplaced our rental car key making us wait almost two hours to leave that hellhole.
Time to Party!!!!
I've stayed in both a rock n roll room and an ocean front room and both were hella fun! Festival is the place to be and stay when you are in Rosarito! During the day it's like the club to be at and be seen!
I had a good *** time!!!
I just came back from this hotel today and it was the bomb! I stayed in one of their rock n roll rooms and the room looked very clean and nice for a very cheap price. I have stayed at hotel with rooms costing at over $150 and they didn't look as nice as these. The staff was very friendly to me and my friend and we got free drinks! We partied all night and then came back and found another party at the hotel, young college guys were everywhere and luckily for me and my homegirl, they were our neighbors. =) It was also great that we could walk to the beach and the clubs, they were only like 5 mins away so we didn't have to drive anywhere. If you want to party till dawn then this is the place to stay, I'm definetely coming back guys! ;)
I went down to Rosarito to party my ass off, and that Hotel made it easy for me to do so. Yes the room's looked warn down but they were still always clean. Security was ok, but alot better then other hotels down there. When I first checked in, my room was trashed by the previous people that stayed in there, when we complained to the manager, he quickly gave us a new room with free drinks:). People have to rember that the Festival Plaza is directed only toward the young college crowled, this Hotels first main objective is to have a non-stop party atmosphere....and thats what it did. If you want to be pampred while you are taking a crap by sitting on a nice shiny toilet, then you should go to the Corona Plaza Hotel. But I guarntee you that it will be extremly dull there with a family of 5 staying next door to you. I would definately go back again!!!
Rock and Roll rooms are the bomb! Talk about a party place! Everyone that we met was having the time of their life, the bar tenders were awesome, and so was the rest of the staff. Total security on our car made us not sweat. Walking distance from any and everything. I will never stay at another hotel in Rosarito!
Not too great
The wallpaper in my room was peeling. The maids did not do a very good job cleaning the rooms. There were a couple of hotel security guys that were very unfriendly. My stay in Rosarito was nice, but this hotel was mighty ghetto.
i do not even want to rekindle my thoughts regarding my spring break trip from hell @ this hotel. When one thinks 'security guards' they commonly do not associate them with cons and thieves. Our room was broken into, everything taken even used disposable cameras. The room was locked, no signs of forced entry. The only way to get in the room was via key...hence my presumption that the hotel employees played a role in this chaotic adventure. When we approached the front desk to be placed in a different room, they denied our request...denied any type of request for reimbursements etc...please do not stay @ this hotel. If i reach one person, then all is good. They even stole my pants!!!! When I asked to speak to the hotel manager...the person working the front counter said, "no, he's too busy"....ill leave it up to your discretion...thanx
I live in San Diego and go to Rosarito often to relax and have fun. I stayed once at the Festival plaza to try it out. The rooms looked worn and tired, the bathroom didn't work and everything was overpriced. If you want a nice hotel in Rosarito stay at Corona Plaza (011526616124200) for about the same amount of $. If you want a cheaper room that is clean and decent stay at Los Pelicanos, (011526616120445) its right on the beach--its quaint but charming.
