Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Coral & Marina Ensenada
We travelled to Ensenada with 3 children in December 03, and had researched extensively where to stay! We were very pleasantly surprised with the Corona Hotel - the staff were more than helpful, the pool was heated, and the hairdresser is sensational (and cheap!). It's a short walk to the main street, but well-lit and no problem whatsoever. Felt safer here than in parts of LA. Would highly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a comfortable, secure hotel in Ensenada.
It's a nice hotel to spark up that romance with your spouse!
Me and my husband had a very nice time in this hotel. It was like our second honeymoon. It was great! We sparked up our romance. We felt in love all over again. I recommend a weekend getaway for those young married couple and for anyone that wants to spark up their love. Inside the room they have a hot bath. The hotel has everything, swimming pool, jacuzzi, soccer tables, air hockey tables, a private gym, massages, even nail shop for the ladies. A bar to go kick it at. It's nice and quiet. And the view if breath taking...
Davis Boats Fish-o-Rama
We have fished every Davis Boats Tournament since 1997 out of this hotel / marina. It is absolutely first class.
Drove down with my girlfriend in June 2003 for a much needed weekend get away. Hotel is set a few miles north of Ensenada proper, but the city is easily accessible with a 10 minute cab ride. The interior is well done, and everyone from the desk staff to the bartenders and bell hops are unbelievably accommodating and friendly. We stayed in one of the smaller suites. The bedroom was smaller but comfortable. The living room, balcony and bathroom were huge for the price. The balcony especially had a wonderful view of the hotels own marina. There was a fishing tournament that weekend, and I just sat there watching the boats come in and out for a couple of hours with margarita in hand- very relaxing. Restaurant was good. Only complaint is lack of trowels at the pool, and area could use more lounge chairs. Overall a great weekend- can't wait to go back.
We love this hotel and have been loyal customers for many years. It is always a pleasant experience. This trip we started our 2-day stay on a Thursday because it was my birthday. Unfortunately, we found that the hotel only offers a week day or a weekend package - no combination.
They refused to be flexible. So...we spent our money in other wonderful restaurants and bars such as the Punta Morro.
We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Coral and Marina and plan on returning later this year. The suite was wonderful, with a great view of the marina and bay. The bedroom could have been larger, but the bathroom was great and the livng area was huge. We ate twice in the restaurant and enjoyed the food and sevice both times. And, pleasantly, the prices were much lower than comparable hotels in the States. The only criticism was the lack of service at the pool. We had to get our own drinks and snacks at the pool side bar. Overall, it was great and the hotel staff were friendly and helpful.
Great Hotel in Ensenada
We took advantage of "The Sunset Package" at the Hotel Coral & Marina Resort that we found posted on their website. We stayed in a Jr. suite the weekend of April 11, 2003. The suite was awesome with 2 TV's that had HBO, Cinemax, CNBC, etc. as well as a nice cold refrigerator. The hotel was very clean, well run, and had a very courteous staff. The restaurant had very good food and service. The resort atmosphere at the 2 outside pools and jacuzzi as well as a large indoor pool and 2 indoor jacuzzis made for a great time for families as well as single people. Plenty to do with 2 ping pong and foosball tables, a pool table which were all indoors as well as a nice big outdoor sand volleyball court. All rooms have big outdoor balconies facing the ocean. A full service spa is on the premises which books up fast so make reservations for massages, manicures, etc. early. There's a city bus/collectivo that stops in front of the hotel on the highway that takes guests into Ensenada for a few pesos and will drop you off in front of The McDonalds in town. Very convenient/cheap for people who don't want to drink and drive while bar hopping in town. The hotel also always has taxis waiting out front as well.
Stayed there on a spur of the moment trip. Had a problem with my credit card it was marked for fraud while I was traveling in Mexico. The Staff worked with me for 2hr trying to resolve the problem.. The hotel rooms were very nice and comfortable. Junior Sutie was awsome, I highly recommend it. Food was delicious at the restaurant, the Staff was courtious and professional. You are a 5 dollar cab ride from downtown Ensanada. Overall I would give the experience a 8 or 9. Would highly recommend it to anybody going to ensanada for the weekend
Big Corporate Meeting
I held a very large (125 people) corporate 3 day meeting at this hotel. Beautifully done; meeting planning, food, facilities, service.
If you want to do an inexpensive, easy corporate meeting this is a great option. Fly your people to San Diego, the hotel provided the buses, and an hour and a half later you are there.
Best in Ensenada
This is by far the best hotel in ensenada. The Hotel is imaculent and the service is first class.

... sign out their kids, and it was annoying trying to give this couple our schpeel while also having our Shockwaves and their parents trying to say bye and thank you to us. I had the couple move around to the other side of the table to complete the registration forms so other parents could come and pick-up. Once they were done with the cards, I looked them over and saw that in the section asking for names of people authorized to sign their kids out, they ...

He had a point; I wasn't exactly in a position to bargain. At the hostel they were warm and welcoming and after a quick forage for tacos I settled in for a cosy evening of Olympics and Anchorman with them.
The next day I planned to leave for Mulege in the evening so this was my only ...
... Going out we ran into Brad and Cheri Wales, part owners of 10 Barrels Brewing in Bend, Oregon. They were also headed out, pulling a trailer. We agreed to stay at the Baja Cactus Inn in El Rosario and who ever got there first would make sure the other also had a room. Although both of us had tried to make reservations, neither of us had been able to get a confirmation. The Baja Cactus Inn is a small place and has great showers. We really want to stay there rather than ...
... on the plane to San Diego! THE LONGEST flight ever!!! I've never been to the west coast...California is amazing!!! We quickly checked in to the Hilton bayfront hotel and went outside to walk around and touch the Pacific Ocean water!! It's so calm and peaceful here...all the SAS kids are here as well but I haven't really met any of them. So glad I have Michelle, Colby and Conal though....I don't think I would have made it here ...

Back on the ship, I worked the night shift and went over my appraisal with Cholena*. I wasn't expecting to get such a high score since I didn't feel like I made that much of an impression being only a week working on the ship, ...
