    The Loreto Bay resort has everything necessary to be a first class resort. However, years of neglect and insufficient traffic have lead to the hotel being somewhat less than its true potential. Don't get me wrong, I really like the resort and the price point is great. I am not even sure I want it to be fixed up more as then the price would go up as well and right now from my perspective Loreto Bay is a great deal. Our room had a view of the water, pool area and a nice terrace for sitting out and enjoying the afternoon. The room was clean and included a ceiling fan that allowed us to stay cool without too much use of the air conditioner. The downside of our room was that it really needed be refreshed with new flooring and a bit of TLC. The service in the breakfast room, pool and bar was just OK. The included breakfast was quite good with a wide assortment of US and Mexican dishes. The pool bar and sports bar prices for drinks were great for a resort hotel. The pool area and beach were very nice and clean. The beach is sandy and the water calm for swimming. They also provide things like bikes and kayaks for use at no charge. My only issue was with the front desk and the policy regarding upfront deposits for on property charges. Mine got messed up and I needed to waste an hour fixing things. This is really something that needs to be improved to avoid confusion - especially when I told them on check-in that I wanted to charge drinks and food to my room. Will I return? Most definitely. Do I recommend the Loreto Bay Resort? Sure if you want a great location and don't mind the hotels shorting coming. Also, it is best to rent a car as the hotel is 15 minutes from the center of Loreto.

    This hotel did a wonderful job accommodating me and 30 members of my friends and family for my wedding at their hotel. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone who wants to have a chill wedding. I'm from America and felt very safe at the resort (and the rest of loreto). My family and I had plenty to do with snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding around the resort. These are activities are all available at Loreto Bay Resort, and they give you a free hour each day of each activity!

    Disappointing

    This was our first trip to Loreto, a rustic coastal community in old Mexico. This is not a resort town with huge all-inclusives. Loreto Bay Golf and Spa is a nice place on the bay with everything you need to relax, swim, and eat on a vacation. The hotel is nice although a bit old school. The staff is hard working and willing to help within the limits they can. Check in is slow because their system is slow. I recommend when you get a room, plan on checking it out to make sure it is at the standard you need. Check the air conditioner, ceiling fan, sheets and shower to be sure you are happy. We did and had a nice room for the stay. Food is served at the pool, upstairs bar and in the breakfast cafe. The pool bar food and drinks were good and we ate there several times. Breakfast was free on our stay and included traditional Mexican breakfast items and an omelette bar. There is no “extra” food store at the resort so candy, sodas, and bottled water for the room must be purchased elsewhere. Service is slower but this is true at EVERY restaurant in Loreto. There is no hurry in Loreto. The pool was warm and a hit among the hotel guests. The beach included free palapa coverage and lounges. I recommend bringing snorkeling masks because the shallow bay is teaming with a large variety of fish too see. It was very fun and safe. There are kayaks and paddle boards to use for free as well. We ate off site at Vista Al Mar (The Clam Shack) about 3 miles south. Highly recommended. We also went into Loreto to Mediterraneo and Mi Lareto, both excellent. Look them up on Yelp for more details. $10 fish dinners and $2 beers, what else can you say. We went to Loreto to relax, eat good food, swim in warm water and experience rustic Mexico. Loreto Bay Golf Resort and Spa is a great way to go.

    Fan didn't work and getting anyone to fix was a nightmare. Never got fixed. Excuse after excuse after call after call. Attitudes of the staff for the most part was sub-par to absolutely terrible. Staff is poorly trained and take their jobs for granted. They are not interested in customer satisfaction. Food by the pool was bad. Burned, dry burgers. Burned chicken wings. Lack of checking on us at all sit down meals. drinks were made by very bad bartenders and they constantly ran out of beer choices, food and booze. Finally, the pool was so dirty we were scared to go in. It looked like a gorilla piss-pool. don't go here. It looks great from far but far from great.
