What a great place for a group to go. Very clean and close by everything. Liz was a wonderful host. We had great fishing and very close to the town. Liz arranged anything we wanted. If you want to cook there is a kitchen. Also phone service to the US. The Wi-Fi works well in certain spots. We will be...

Thanks for reviewing our small boutique hotel! Glad you had a great time here. Since you left we added a second internet service so that any iffy spots inside Casita 1 will get better coverage. WiFi as improved and speed and coverage so hopefully that will help those visitors who cannot unplug while on vacation! Hope to see you back...

One of the best hotel visits ever. I spend about 120 nights a year in hotels, this is one of the best. Clean, neat, comfortable, and relaxed. The rooms are stocked with all your needs. Liz took care of every detail, fishing, boats, meals, taxis. We have already booked our next trip to Mexico and will always stay with Liz!...

Liz has done an awesome job creating a wonderful retreat in the heart of Loreto. Away from the noise and dense population of Cabo San Lucas, Loreto is the place to go and El Tibuorn Casitas is where you need to stay for those who enjoy peaceful and non pretentious settings. My husband and I were excited to take our...

There are several individual, eclectically furnished casitas which are nicely appointed with Baja decor. Everything you need is here to make you comfortable and even if you want to cook. Centrally located near the marina and lots of good restaurants. Lee was welcoming and cheerfully volunteered to help us with arrangements for excursion, fishing, etc. Great patio, pool, bikes ands...

We return here every year for Gray and Blue whale season. Book well in advance to secure a Casita at El Tiburon! There are 5 units and we have stayed in all of them over the years and like them all--each is unique in colors and artwork. All are around a central Patio and common area where you can visit...

Thank you for already booking for 2016! You are correct in that we will book up well in advance for Gray Whale season. We are glad you notice our improvements each year- the Hammocks and free phone service to Canada and USA has been hugely popular. Email the hotel directly to book. We do not book through the Trip Adviser...

The accomodations are outstanding, and Liz and her team are the best. The marina and most restaurants are within walking distance of the casitas. For an eco-tour or fishing adventure, this place is hard to beat.

I generally do not write reviews but when I saw the review dated April 7 I had to add my 2 cents. You would have to be a pretty unhappy person not to like these Casitas. It is true that Loreto is not the easiest destination to get to, internet and phone service are not as fast or reliable as...

Thank you for clarifying the issues with the ONE slightly negative review we have received. You are correct on all points. We still are sorry that the young traveler was not prepared for Baja travel----- but the pluses really do outweigh the minuses!!!

My wife and I just got back from an incredible week at El Tiburon. The Casitas were very comfortable and the patio and pool area is perfect for relaxing.

Thank you for writing a lovely review and noting that the Casitas are a perfect place for a young couple like yourselves, despite the recent odd review form a young person.

I was a bit surprised when I reached the casitas, as this was voted so highly in Loreto hotels. Maybe the other places are in worse shape..but this one would definitely use a bit of love. Worn out bed sheets and towels, cheap artifacts on the walls, no wifi in the room. One thing trip advisor should consider adding as...

I am so sorry you did not like your 2 day stay in Loreto.
