Las Rosas - A diamond in the rough of Ensenada
My wife and I drove into Mexico for a 4 day trip planning to stay in 3 different cities and see the northern part of Baja-California. Due to a cancellation, Las Rosas had their "La Cosita" room available and we booked it for 1 night at $190/night (trust me it's worth it). To make a long story short, we spent our entire trip at Las Rosas in La Cosita. It is a beautiful small house with a large living room, bedroom, full size kitchen, and all tile front patio only feet from the crashing waves of the pacific but 100 yards from the main hotel. Very secluded and extremely romantic. We spend entire days reading books, drinking Margaritas, and making love under the sun. With a full kitchen a trip to the store was all that was needed to be 100% self sufficient. For that extra touch, order a romantic dinner served to you while a fire burns in the fireplace and you listen to the crashing waves. Skip downtown, if you're into relaxing and love spending quality time with the one you love then Las Rosas and La Cosita is for you.
My boyfriend and I visited Las Rosas for a quick weekend getaway from San Diego and loved it. The hotel is situated above the crashing waves and the view simply cannot be beat. Forget going into Ensenada, just take a book and relax at LasRosas' beautiful pool all day and order drinks from the poolside bar. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the restaurant on site was very good and reasonably priced. I had some trouble sleeping because traffic noise was somewhat disturbing, but my boyfriend wasn't bothered by it. The spa services were OK, but not on the same level as you'd find at a US resort. (Staff was running late, massage rooms were cold, no real spa ambiance.) I'd recommend a day trip to the nearby wineries for wine tasting.
I give Las Rosas an A+
We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. It was fantastic. The infinity pool looks as if it's spilling into the ocean. It is so pretty all lit up at night. And the Jaccuzi is large too. The view of the ocean and island from our room, make the balcony a great place to spend some time. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. Beds were comfy too. I would like to see them plant tree's by the hwy though. I did hear some traffic noice in my room. All in all, our trip was just perfect. I even got to watch some locals pull in an octopus. They were going to cook it for a party later that night. And they were just so friendly. Was really a fun time. The Mexican hospitality was all around. And the food and service in thier restaurant was just fantastic. I give this hotel an A+Julie from Oregon
Nice, Relaxing Getaway
Just got home yesterday from Las Rosas after a four night stay with my husband. This was our first getaway after the birth of our daughter five months ago. We picked Las Rosas because I just wanted to sleep and relax this vacation. The hotel is a perfect little getaway from California to do just that. We had the Jr. Suite Deluxe with a jacuzzi for two that was really nice. The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and the location on the cliff perfect. Ensenada was a dump as most of the Tiajuana, Rosarito area is. Go here if you don't want to leave then hotel much. The food at the restaurant was just average and you will get sick of eating at the same place for all your meals if you don't leave the property. We had a fantastic meal at a restaurant in an old winery in town. Ask any cab driver to take you there, it was great food in a really unique setting with great prices for what you get. Skip La Bufadora. Way overhyped for just a row of street vendors and little cliff that sprays. Overall a nice place to stay.
We go again and again
This is one of the most delightful surprises in Ensenada. The staff is very helpful and courteous; at least one of the staff remembers that you have stayed with them before. The hotel is quiet, clean, the view is great, the infinity pool is beautiful. The jacuzzi is above the pool making it yet another place to enjoy the sunset. Food is prepared and served very well. There is a casual formality that makes your stay quiet and peaceful. The hotel has not added any speciality items for children, although children do stay, which makes this hotel a little more adult friendly. Be sure to visit the Punta Morro Resturant, just 1 mile south from the hotel, and watch the waves (which are lighted at night) while dining. You can also enjoy the sunset if your early.
Very nice hotel, good location. The only one thing I did not like was the size of the bathrooms, they are too small. We staying in a two bedroom suite and I must say the inside room was too hot and noisy it faced the inside stairwell. Next time I will not stay in that room. I liked that they welcome you with drinks. We stayed there for 4th of July weekend. Be careful with the people who like to drink at the pool, they get annoyed if you want to swim. I found the staff to be very accomodating to guest.
We have been staying at Las Rosas for over 15 yrs. Equal to any 5 star Calif hotel. View gorgeous, service outstanding, great brunch. We travel over 3000 miles just to go to this hotel.
Las Rosas Hotel..great food,service,views!
Our stay at Las Rosas hotel was very nice.We got a junior suite..very large unit,with the most awesome views of the ocean and pool area.The dining in their restaurant was superb! We also had the Sunday Brunch...excellent.Service was very good.Hotel is very clean and the decor was just perfect.We're looking forward to going again soon.
Great place that is almost superlative...
Just got back-this is a wonderful 50-room boutique hotel with a lot of pluses-an attentive, on-the-ball staff; a good restaurant (half the customers were local Mexicans, a good sign); all rooms face the beach and the pools are nice...our room was new and modernA couple of minor minuses-the color scheme is late 80's Southwest and could use some upgrading; also due to lots of sharp-edges on the stone walkways and a rocky beach below (no sand) it is not really a good place for small children. Also, American TV channels would be nice (only Mexican Sky TV available)Overall, a great place for couples that is close to downtown Ensenada that I would stay at again in a minute and which would command $350 a night if it was in La Jolla or Laguna Beach...
My girlfriend and two other friends stayed here, it was amazing. We shared a room with 2 double beds for $145, bit pricey for Mexico but the veiw was worth it. The pool was heated and had a small little tunnel you could swim under from one side to the other. The jacuzzi was spacious-great place to watch the sun set. We were on the ground floor which was great, we had a huge lawn between us and the ocean all to ourselves. Also, they had stone paths leading down to the water, and the service was great. I will definitely be going back, hopefully one every couple months to get away from it all. Oh, and you each get a free, and strong, margharita when you arrive.

I went back to Tijuana that same day.
Overall Ensenada was entertaining and relaxing. I met really nice people and saw beautiful things.
I would definitely go back!
PS. It is really safe!!!

At the end of this irritating shift, we had a mini meeting where we got our new schedules for the next 4 day cruise. I have both Santa Barbara and Ensenada ...
