Challenged arrival

Posted Jul 29, 2014
When we arrived they checked us into a room which had not been cleaned. We had to wait on the patio for at least an hour calling several times asking for it to be cleaned,

Great location & View

Posted Jul 15, 2014
The hotel grounds are very beautiful. Although an update is greatly needed in the rooms. The first night there our room AC unit was not working, not pleasant at all but we changed rooms the next day with no problem. The other thing that caught us by surprise was that the water used for baths was salty water!! Did not enjoy that at all!!! I think they filter water from the bay??

beautiful grounds, beautiful view

Pros: beautiful grounds - landscaping and cleanliness.
Cons: Bathrooms need more detailed cleaning and maintenance on the doors and light fixtures.
Location: Near a very run-down neighborhood. Everything you need is within the gates of this resort so don't bother venturing out.
The landscaping is beautiful, the pool area looks inviting, but the rooms need a little more attention to detail in cleaning and maintenance upkeep. Be advised: the "heated" pool was freezing cold, and the hot tubs were scalding hot. There was a sand volleyball pit but none of the staff seemed to know where the volleyball was. They also have tennis courts and they did have tennis equipment to borrow, but some of it is very old and worn out. The restaurant was excellent: we had good food and good service. Be aware that this hotel is a shore excursion on Carnival cruises and there was a busload of cruisers that were brought in to spend the afternoon there several days a week, but even so the pool area never felt crowded.

Pleasant stay by the bay

We will be back! My husband, two kids and i stayed for an additional night. Our room was ocean front and the hotel felt very secure. The kids loved the pool, the beach and the restaurant.

A nice quiet couples getaway

Posted Jun 2, 2014
Ensenada is an amazing place to visit... and so Estero Beach Hotel and Resort. At first glance, the resort appears to be a bit rundown, however, they still have all the necessary things in place for a pleasant visit. Clean pool (right next to the beach) Clean room (with excellent room and maid service) Safety (with security present at points of interest (i.e. main entrance, hotel entrance, all throughout hotel)... you feel safe. Although outside of downtown Ensenada, it close to enough to everything to have a fulfilling 3-day weekend.

Outdated

Posted May 27, 2014
Rooms are stuck in the 70's I don't think they've done anything since it opened besides the pool. Couldn't charge anything to the room went to take a shower and all the particles from the pipes came out onto the tub. The grounds look like judgement night the bar drinks were mediocre. Other than that the tacos in town were good.
