Historical Traveler Reviews Las Cabanas de Loreto
Best possible place to stay in Loreto Mexico
My wife and I spent a two week vacation in Loreto in April 2006. The best part was our stay at Las Cabanas. The owner/manager ( Jill ) was friendly and extremely helpful. She was also kind enough to let our friends come over and use the new pool and laundry faclities ( they had chosen to stay at a place called Sukasa nearby which lacked these facilities ). The location of Las Cabanas is ideal because it's close to the water but not right next to the noise of the main waterfront. The rooms are clean and quiet with good A\C and fans. The pool guy came by every morning to clean the pool and hot tub. There was a fridge and microwave in the room and a big outdoor cooking facility next to a long table under big sun shades right next to the room. Great place.
A wonderful, relaxing haven in Loreto
We stayed at Las Cabanas and had the most wonderful time! The grounds, pool, hot tub, cabanas and everything were beautiful! Jill and Linda were so great at making us feel completely comfortable. Everyone we met was great and friendly and I can't say enough about this place. We will definately return to Las Cabanas and encourage anyone looking for a relaxing, wonderful vacation to stay here.
Delightful, warm & firendly accomodation and setting.
Our 4 night stay at the Cabanos was the culmination of a 14 day trip October, 2005, to review the recent developments at Loreto Bay. Our first week was spent at the Coco Cabanos, also worthy of commendation,3 nights at the Camino Real at Loreto Bay, enjoyable, and the last 4 nights at the Las Cabanos de Loreto, which we found quite by accident and by walking the malecon. We were invited to stay by a delightful innkeeper, and set up in one of her excellent cabanos lacking nothing in comfort and charm. Review delayed by non-working pc and travel. Best value for dollar for sure.
No Better Place to stay in Loreto
We stayed at four establishments during our 2 weeks in Loreto and "stumbled" into Las Cabanas de Loreto while taking a walk and reserved the only two days left available while we were in Loreto. Our only regret is that we didn't find Las Cabanas earlier so we could have stayed longer! The grounds are beautiful and immaculate, the rooms the same... and the beds are comfortable! (a rare find in Loreto!)
Jill, Rick, and Linda were wonderful and helpful... from talking about things to do to arranging for a panga to San Clemente Island and lending us a kayak!
Trip Advisor does not have a high enough ranking for Las Cabanas!
A great spot!
My family spent 16 days in two of the Cabanas over Christmas 2005. We loved the newly finished hot tub, the sheltered feeling of the compound, and the functional, appealing cabanas.
We cooked a lot of our own meals using the kitchenettes in the room and outdoor grill, then dined under the stars at the lovely wooden tables. What a great spot!
Excellent Cabanas, had everything there. Used to staying in some "less than 5 star" hotels due to the geography of Baja and driving it. Used to be not very many options in regards to lodging between the bigger towns of the Baja until you get to La Paz. This is a great choice for Loreto. They were building the pool and have since finished. Great attention to detail in the bathrooms and rooms themselves. Needed at least a week to settle into the groove of Loreto. Great ecofriendly town!
The Perfect Destination
Spending 17 November days in Loreto was marvelous. Besides enjoying this charming fishing village, its friendly people, great restaurants, and easy living, our stay at Las Cabanas de Loreto was a joy. A half block from the malacon along the sea and walking distance to shops and dining makes it the perfect location. The cabana was just what we were looking for--beautifully tiled bathroom, well supplied kitchenette, ample sleeping area with lovely furnishings, set in a quiet restful location. The gracious owners, who take great pride in their creation and community, make you feel more like their house guest than a visitor. We watched the completion of the new swimming pool located next to a great outdoor cooking area for preparing the fresh fish you will bring home from a day on the sea. The outdoor barbecue, tiled counter and sink plus dining table invite evenings of dining al fresco or leisurely breakfasts of freshly baked goods from the bakery/cafe just a block away. The four stylish cabanas plus the owner's home make this little compound a pefect destination for those who prefer a lovely setting in the charming culture of Loreto over a crowded beach resort. We plan to return often.
Best Vacation Ever
This is the place to stay in Loreto! We rented the main house in Oct.,2004 and, as long as they have room, I will not look anywhere else! Las Cabanas de Loreto is, as far as I could tell, the nicest home in town! Definately the nicest short term rental. Gourmet kitchen, two huge master suites with full baths (huge showers w/excellent water pressure-always a 'pet peeve' with me), a deck with a view of the Sea of Cortez that will take your breath away, and the nicest innkeepers you will find anywhere!! What more could you ask for? Well, how about world class fishing for marlin, sailfish, dorado, yellow tail, yellowfin tuna, roosterfish, etc.! We made the mistake of waiting too long to firm up our plans for 2005 and had to stay elsewhere-not good. Anyway, I learned my lesson and have rented all four cabanas for a week in July, 2006. Make your reservations early, you will not be disappointed--the finest accommodations, the best destination left in Baja, great fishing all year around, fabulous restaurants and watering holes, and, again, the Clarks/Jacksons are wonderful folks to rent from. I can hardly wait for July!!! Steve K. Jones
Forget the rest - stay at Las Cabanas
After about 1,500 miles of grinding around Baja on and off road Las Cabanas was a true oasis in the desert. Full on HOT and powerful shower (if you've traveled in Baja you know the true value of a REAL shower) - the room was incredibly comfortable, large selection of movies to just veg out and watch, close to the malecon but far enough back to be out of the noise, nice secure compound for the car, and GREAT hosts. Free WiFi internet was a true bonus - and it works out by the pool! - this is a great place to stay - planned to stay only one or two nights but ended up staying for a week!
Outstanding Vacation Spot in Loreto
My wife and I spent a wonderful week's vacation in Loreto in November 2005 at Las Cabanas de Loreto. The owners, from Sonoma California, are charming people and were incredibly helpful (e.g., on-target restaurant recommendations, letting us use their laundry facilities, letting us use their computer to check email, and arranging fishing, island beach and inland mission outings with local guides they have vetted previously). The location is perfect - half a block off the Malecon, one block from a great bakery/breakfast/lunch place that (among other things) makes excellent cinnamon rolls, three blocks from one of the best fish restaurants in Loreto, and about five blocks from the plaza/city center. The rooms, arranged around a small pool and lounging area, are simple but very well-appointed and have a fridge/microwave/coffee-making area for guests who get tired of eating in restaurants. No criticisms. This place is great.

We stayed all day Sunday at Ballandra. Ken, Rob and I decided to go out in Bottoms Up for another try. We circled north around the tip of Isla Carmen. We fished near the shore, far out to sea. We trolled fast, we trolled slow. We tailed local fishing boats from Loreto. We changed gear often. We prayed to the fishing Gods. We tried different music. We finished hard. In short, we tried everything we could but to no avail. Tail between our legs, ...

This makes it look like we do nothing but loll about, and that is not entirely so. There is some sweet lolling in the mix, though, for sure!

... healthy ecology. There is abundant, and diverse, birdsong. This is evidence that certain human neighbours haven't won the day. Insects still abound, and thus so do the birds.
I have even come to love ants here. If a cricket suddenly tumbles onto its side, having breathed its last breath, ants will appear out of nowhere, some silent (to me) signal guiding them to the site. They are like the turkey vultures of Parsi tradition.
