Ensenada! Too bad I can't go ashore for more amazing tacos and margaritas.
I worked PDS from 8am-1pm and it got pretty busy and hectic! Time went by quickly though and I got to go watch the movie 12 Years a Slave with Lily* in the Princess Theatre afterward. We grabbed a light dinner at Horizons before I worked from 6-8pm (the beginning of the Survivor Night ...
Worked 9-noon and then went ashore with Greta*. We took the shuttle into town and found Hussong's Cantina, a restaurant claiming to have first invented the margarita. Probably the best margarita I've ever had. The place was such a neat dive. Chloe* came into the cantina telling us that she and some friends were next door getting tacos, so after our drinks Greta* and I went next ...
... a good day. Shocked, I said thank you and pulled forward into the maze on the U.S. side. Slowly, we drove up to the agricultural inspection and were waived through. Not even a check of the glove box. It took longer to find the check point than to get through it. A sweet breeze. I was really dreading unloading the kayak and reloading it.
We are in America. On to San Diego and find Sadie a dog beach because she is such a good girl. The X made it down Baja and back. No ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Punta Morro Hotel Suites Ensenada
Loved my time at Punta Morro
Took my boyfriend to Punta Morro for his birthday. The rooms are cute and cozy. We had an incredible meal at the hotel restaurant. The view is amazing. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. Am hoping to return with a group in April and stay in one of the three bedroom suites.
The very best of Ensenada
Punta Morro is out of ordinary from any other hotel or resort in Ensenada. The food is amazingly high in quality and the service is first-class. The best feature Punta Morro has is its peaceful beauty and its small room ratio which is a big plus in my book. Punta Morro offers the best of Baja California's wine, which are all estate reserves and specialy selected grapes from the "Valle de Guadalupe", which has earned much respect internationally. Punta Morro is a great getaway for anybody especially if you are in the mood for a romantic weekend this is definitley the place to be. I have visited Ensenada for the last ten years of my life and this is the one hotel that truely stands out from any other. Happy getaways to everyone, take full advantage of its peaceful beauty. CIO!
It's a nice hotel to have the privacy and get away from the noises!!!
Me and my husband spend Christmass in this Hotel it was great except that it's kind of pricy for the fact that the bathroom is small and has no bathtub :-( the kitchen is kind of small too...I was sick that night with flu (I really would of haved enjoyed a really nice hot shower in a tub) but that did not stopped me from enjoying my stay... I enjoyed my stay very much. I took my own heater so I was very cozy and warm...the view was excellent its breath taking. We totally enjoyed it and the customer service was great! We had locked our keys in the car and the people at the front desk helped us right away, the guy called a locksmith they came in 15 minutes. The only dealer in the city with our same type of car was close that day and thanks to them we got our car open in no time!!!! We liked the continental breakfast and the courtesy was great. We really recommend this hotel it's nice, cozy, and private, very quiet I slept like a baby!!!
Punta Morro Hotel is Great
Just spent three nights at Punta Morro and found it to be a delightful place. The place is immaculate and the employees are friendly, well-groomed,and efficient. The setting is awesome. I expect to return many times.
Feeling ripped off and not all its cracked up to be
First off, there are no bath tubs in any of the rooms. The showers take about 10 minutes to heat up and when they do the water really isnt that hot. When we went to the lobby, a sign was posted saying that the rooms were only 120 for the one bedroom, however, we paid 135, paying in advance. When I asked the front desk about this they said, oops, the price is now 135! I think I just got screwed out of 15 bucks but Im not going to let it ruin my trip.Then I look to see that the pool and the jacuzzi is under construction and out of order. It would have been nice to have them warn me of this when I talked to them on the phone making my reservations. However, everything is clean and the view is spectacular. The continential breakfast was nice to. Also, their private restaurant was a breathtaking view. One more thing, the kitchen is really small with one of those micromini fridges. There is also no heating or air. They put one of those cheap little metal heaters in your closet in case you get cold. No air conditioning for the summer time though. Regarding cable, there is English speaking stations with a couple of movie channels but the reception is poor. The fireplace is a nice romantic touch.All in all, in Mexico, its worth about $80.00, not $135
Ensenada's best kept secret
There is no better place in Mexico than Punta Morro. The sevice is exceptional, the food at the restaurant is fabulous, the rooms are cozy and very clean, and the view from your balcony is breathtaking. My boyfriend and I go about 4 times a year and love it so much that we are planning our wedding there.
This place is so nice and quaint. It is hidden off of the main highway going into Ensenada. Close enough to the city, but nice that is is just outside of it. The rooms are very nice although the bathrooms are small. The hotel itself has a beautiful view and the view in the restaurant is awesome. The waves crash onto the windows. The staff is incredible and cater to every whim. We were always ordering something extra, like towels or water, etc. . They were always at the door within minutes. The kitchenettes are very nice also. If you want a NICE, quiet place to stay, this is it.
Best kept secret
Sept. 15, 200My family and I enjoyed ourselves tremendously, their attention to detail is superb and the service is top rated...
I loved the resort it has been one of the most memorable times in my life. When I am fed up at work I always think back to the time I spent at the resort and my day seems a lot lighter. My boyfriend took pictures of the resort. I hung one of them taken from the balcony at my desk and I look glance at the picture for therapy, living in LA can take a toll on you. I recommend this resort to anyone whether you take kids, partner or even by yourself.
Loved this place!
Although a bit pricey by Mexico standards (but not by California standards!) this place was WELL worth it. For $185 a night, my friends and I stayed in a two-bedroom suite with two king-sized beds, a living room, fireplace, dining table, a balcony with a gorgeous view, and complimentary bottles of purified water (handy for Gringos!). The jacuzzi and pool were wonderful (the only drawback being that the pool was a bit cold), the restaurant was fantastic (with free continental breakfasts or considerable discounts on delicious hot breakfasts),
and the service was great. Everything is literally right on the ocean, so that we had daily sightings of pelicans, sea lions and dolphins. When we were there, the hotel itself was fairly quiet, but by no means stuffy. A short cab right to the heart of town, it's a great place to stay for both relaxtion and nightlife! I highly
