    I called the hotel directly to make reservations. Was told they have suites only and I asked for oceanfront, confirming there would be a microwave and mini fridge. I was given a rate and passed onto someone else. They booked my reservation and I was pleased to learn the rate was actually lower. I asked for an email confirmation and days later when I didn't receive one, called again and when it still didn't happen, sent an email and rec'd the confirmation that way. We checked in and found it was not a suite, no mw or fridge. The desk clerk said he would look into it. The next day they said they found my email and yes, I had booked a suite and they would move me, but not until 5 p.m. We did eventually get moved. The room was nice, the view beautiful -- albeit housekeeping was minimal. The hot tub worked (minimally) one day of the week we were there and the pool was literally too cold to swim in -- I'm talking frigid. The bartender was able to make only the most basic of drinks -- margaritas, Tequila sunrise, screwdriver. Not sure what he put in the mojita but it wasn't rum. Upon checking out, I found they charged me for a suite for the first night, but they corrected that. It's a beautiful place (note there is construction going on), beautiful views. But the lack of hot tub, the freezing pool and other minor issues would make me think twice before booking here again. BTW, Loreto is the cleanest, safest-feeling place I've been in Mexico. Lovely people, walkable and so so affordable.

    My husband and I stayed a week in a King Luxury Ocean view room and enjoyed a beautiful sunrise every morning. The hotel is immaculate and well maintained. We enjoyed every meal we ate there; breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks! Drinks were fantastic as well! I was disappointed to have to go to the bar to order food and drink, rather than poolside service - but they did deliver to the pool. Taxis are reasonable and conveniently parked out the front door, although didn't need them to see the town. I liked the coffee in the restaurant better than the Starbuck's in the lobby. The shower water pressure in our room was not so great, and I was surprised how much we heard from the rooms around us given concrete walls/floors, but it didn't keep us awake. All of the staff are friendly, helpful, and attentive. Since this was our first visit to Loreto, we took a taxi to check out the golf resort outside town...so glad we stayed at La Mision! I would highly recommend La Mision, especially for first time visitors as it is in a convenient location, immaculately maintained, and a very relaxing place to stay!

    The La Mision is a beautiful hotel in a Great location for walking around and viewing the sunsets! The food is good and the Margaritas are fantastic! Breakfast buffet is excellent. They have 2 bars and both are great! The King Ocean view suite is very nicely appointed with a comfortable bed however the 3rd floor room is right on top of the main dining room and literally looks down on the dining patio. The door to the dining room patio is a heavy wood and glass door that is on a spring hinge and begins slamming at 5:45am as every waiter and patron goes through it to the buffet and on into the evening! It was nonstop for hours actually shaking our room. We thought it was major construction going on below but it was just the door banging and the metal chairs sliding back and forth on the tile floors. So noisy it was unbearable so we asked for a room change. They did not have the same room equivalent so we ended up in an inferior room on the 4th floor only to find out that they were setting up for a wedding on the 5th floor which included construction noise, yikes! We never found a quiet moment for our entire stay and we ended up changing to another hotel. Non of the staff seamed very concerned with our concerns and made us feel we were inconveniencing them so front desk customer service was not stellar. Sadly disappointed for what could have been a wonderful experience otherwise.

    The location, the hotel, the room, the service, the breakfast food, THE VIEW the comfy bed and the amazing pressure in the shower head ;) all this and more, is just GREAT! I was upgraded to a room with a view, let me tell you, you will be so anxious to wake up early and open the curtains to see that beautiful view of the calm waters of Gould de Cortez and the Malecón with a stunning sun raising up, so peaceful! Also KUDOS to the front desk agent, Eder, ask him questions and suggestions, he has answers. ¡Gracias!

    Great Location and Staff ... but some opportunities for improvement

    We checked-in for a two night stay. The front desk people were very friendly and fully bi-lingual. In no time at all we were headed to our room. The room overlooked Loreto Bay and was nicely appointed ... with marble floors and nice furnishings. The first night we ate at the outdoors grill. The pizza was fabulous, as was the service. That night we realized that having marble floors, while aesthetically attractive, was a problem. Any walking on the floor above and/or the movement of furniture echoed throughout our room. The next afternoon, when trying to take a nap, it sounded as though the occupants above were tap-dancing. Also, that afternoon, we realized that our room had not been serviced. We spoke to the front desk, who said they'd have towels delivered. After a few hours we gave up and asked for a new room ... which they provided. Dinner that night in the "fine dining" also produced mixed reviews. A tortilla soup was presented that was cold ... and immediately returned to the kitchen. Sea bass and a chicken dish were well prepared and ample in quantity. Do not expect to be able to conduct any meaningful business at La Mision because the WiFi is both weak and intermittent. Very frustrating.
