El Tiburon Casitas

Luxury Rentals in Loreto, Baja California Sur

  Testimonials / Reviews    2023                                                                       We Love our Visitors!    And fortunately, our Visitors love El Tiburon Casitas! 

Here is a sampling of some recent reviews:  

 Whether judged by merit, service or any other standard I can think of, El Tiburon and it's owner Liz  will always be very near or at the top. Located only a block out of the town center, where the Mission and most of the restaurants are and only one blocks from the Marina, this is where you want to be in town. Remember that the sun sets over the desert on the east coast of Baja and there is no advantage to being further away from town by being closer to the water.

Others have accurately described the casitas, the pool, internet and of course the free use of the bicycles. What they haven't been able to convey is the synergy which is created from the return clientele. On my most recent visit everyone staying there except for us was a repeat visitor to the hotel. This leads to a casual feeling of returning to a favorite place.

Loreto is a wonderful town, a beautiful ocean, surrounded by pristine desert and full of colonial charm. Add to that the outstanding choices for dinning and it's a choice most would relish for a few days.

Over the years I've been fortunate enough to visit Loreto dozens of times, which has afforded me the opportunity to stay in most of the hotels there. Going forward this will be my first choice.

I almost didn't want to write this review for the selfish reason that it will certainly become more difficult to obtain reservation's at El Tiburon as ever more people hear about this place..."


"Clean and safe in COVID times"

The casitas are spotless and cleaned daily. There is ample room to be socially distanced if you want to be.

The town's restaurants are mostly open and the dive boats and fishing boats were operating normally.  Alaska air flights were not an issue.

First time visitors

This was our first trip to Loreto, and we were delighted to find it was a quiet little Mexican town. Just what we were looking for.
We stayed at El Tiburon Casitas.as it caught our eye on the net. We spent two weeks there and Liz , the owner, was fantastic at all times. Liz was helpful from the moment we arrived showing us where to eat on our arrival, Orlando's was great. Then she helped to set up a visit to the local Sunday market with some other guests the next day. 
Our casita #3 was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. It was very spacious with a well-equipped kitchen, and an endless supply of bottled water....................

For our first ever visit to Loreto, we read the Trip Advisor reviews of El Tiburon Casitas, and based on the very positive reviews, we decided to stay there. We are very happy we did.
El Tiburon has 4 casitas inside a walled compound - there is lots of space and privacy. There is a very nice pool and patio area with lots of lounge type seating. We stayed in Casita #2. It was exceptionally clean and had all the amenities one could want - full kitchen, hot shower, room safe, large bottled water, soaps, towels, etc. The room was cleaned every day - it was spotless throughout our stay. It is a one block walk to the Loreto central plaza, or a one block walk to the beach and the Malecon. We visited the plaza regularly and found several outstanding restaurants. Our hostess arranged for us to meet Francisco - he was our taxi driver while we were there - he was exceptional - prompt, polite, knowledgeable and spoke good English. With his help we explored many areas around Loreto.
If you are looking for clean and safe accommodation with easy access to very good restaurants and the beach - El Tiburon is an excellent choice. The assistance we received from the owner Liz, and her assistant, was superb. They are both very knowledgeable about the area and have a commitment to make your stay as good as it can be. We definitely recommend El Tiburon and will stay there again when we have another opportunity to visit Loreto.

Everything you need or want!

 .......Our casita (queen) was much more spacious and tastefully decorated than we had anticipated from the photos, the kitchen was very well-equipped and even had a blender so we could make smoothies. The housekeeping services are amazing and very discreet. Liz goes out of her way to make sure you have everything you could possibly need and she is a mine of information for anything you could possibly want to know about while you are in Loreto. The property has fiber optic  wifi, so you can just email her with a question and she gets back to you very fast which was a big help on a couple of occasions. I loved the hotel dog, the bikes, and the relaxed ambiance of the courtyard/pool area. The casitas are quite special and we will definitely return!

Already booked next year.....

Enjoyed another great week at El Tiburon, our eighth year. Still safe, clean and so accommodating! Not only is El Tiburon a wonderful place to stay, the town is quaint with many interesting things to do. Fishing, snorkeling, scuba, whale watching, swimming, hiking, biking, mule riding, shopping, boat tours, fabulous restaurants --- and relaxing! Our favorite vacation.

Look no further! Paradise in Loreto

We have stayed in many places in Loreto and in Baja over the last 30 years, and this is the best place, hands down. The location, value, and safety of this location is unparalleled.

The attention to detail in every Casita and the little things added for your comfort like  napkins and paper towels, wine glasses, pool towels, unlimited filtered water, ice trays, coffee grinders and French presses, and orange juice squeezers make for a very relaxing vacation.  It is the closest Hotel to the Marina and Public beach, as the main part of Loreto with the bigger Hotels are on the rock seawall which does afford a  better view from your Hotel window but also puts you square in to the noise and odor of the Malecon traffic. This quiet gated compound assures you no one will bother you. 

 All Casitas have CA king or Queen Temperpedic beds  and comfy pillows, hot water, full kitchens, heat and AC, not that common in Baja either!

I was looking for a place to stay on a fishing road trip my son and I were taking. We found Tiburon Casitas and we found a little slice of heaven! The location is perfectly located near the marina, near restaurants and the historic downtown plaza. No need for a car, you can walk or use one of the bikes available. The casita was spotless and well appointed. The beds were very comfortable. Liz the owner is so friendly, it was like seeing an old friend again! She really pays attention to details. Very communicative during the booking process and payment was easy. She helped us book fishing with a couple of excellent guides with good pangas. This worked out so much better than me trying to do it blindly! THANKS again Liz! I would stay here again 100%!

 10 Day Casita Stay

5 of 5 starsReviewed July 25, 2019

Just returned from a 10 day stay at this charming gated Casita compound. This is an ideal spot for a lady flying solo to have privacy, be able to relax, and yet have the convenience of the nearby beach, shops, plaza and restaurants all within walking distance. There are some beautiful photography locations near the Casitas. I never felt afraid staying or going anywhere alone. The internet and kitchenette were more than adequate; shared lovely meals around the pool with others guests – IF that is what I wanted to do. The place was amazingly clean! I will be back!
