Good value for Ensenada

Posada El Rey Sol: We rented 2 rooms, one for ourselves and a larger to bless another family. 3-story charming hotel with Elevator (not noted in other reviews so I expected only stairs). Unique decor for each room. We slept comfortably in our queen bed. Lovely modern bath facilities wall dispensers for soap/shower gel, shampoo, conditioner. Nice hot showers and good towels. Hotel is just off the tourist street so not as noisy. Walking distance to everything! We liked that we could park the car in the parking lot (inside area of the hotel) and leave it. Parking can be a tight squeeze for big vehicles. Helpful Reviews had warned us of late arrivals not finding parking. Family liked trying the lovely unheated swimming pool, and the warmish hot tub. Enjoyed the nice upper terrace area for our picnic. FYI: although encouraged to drink only bottled water, the rooms provided one bottle per person per STAY, not day. Of course, it's nice that they did that much, (but for that room price?)... and water is sold all around. BREAKFAST: Coupons are given for Limited but Adequate Breakfast Options at the lovely El Rey Sol restaurant, but only for occupants of certain higher priced (4-person?) rooms, and I heard only 2-4 coupons. ASK about your room. DO eat in that restaurant, and note the History of the place! It's a lovely place, and I found it odd that they played bar music... SO, if they're playing other music, request kindly that they change to the more elegant older classic music of Mexico...after all, that's where you are! They love changing it for you, and love talking about those classic musicians, too! Great staff at hotel front desk and at the restaurant.
