I have stayed in several different Loreto Hotel-Cabana type places many times over the years. El Tiburon Casitas is the newest Casita Hotel and closest to the Marina. El Tiburon Casitas deserves 5 stars for service, location and comfy beds and showers. You have to take into account that a 5 star rating on Trip Advisor is not the same...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your very positive 5 star review of El Tiburon Casitas. Yes our rates are 120 usd for 2017 for 2 persons. 2 night minimum.

First time in Loreto, and we will be back! Clean and nicely furnished accommodations; friendly and very helpful owner; very safe environment guarded by well-trained and well-tempered dogs. Very safe neighborhood a block from the beach/boardwalk/marina. This is the best place we have stayed in all of Mexico or elsewhere. Everything you could want: individual kitchenettes, private patio for residents,...

Dear Hilarie, Thank you so very much for the sparkling review of our Property.

As a less expensive alternative to previous Hawaiian and Carribean vacations we chose Loreto for our first visit to Mexico. The desert was a change from the lush tropical islands. The El Tiburon Casitas were very clean , very comfortable, nicely decorated, and located within a short walk of the marina, beach and many cafes and shops. We took tours...

I am so happy your first visit to Loreto was worthy of a return visit. The seasons are very different here and sometimes the desert is green and lush depending on the rainfall. If you choose to come May to November the water will be warm and ideal for fabulous snorkelling! Winter is whale watching season and the Blue and...

Went to Loreto to go fishing and El Tiburon turned out to be, by far, the nicest place we've stayed in Loreto. We could walk to the malecon, and practically anywhere else too. The room was spotless, the grounds well cared for and a quite/calm atmosphere. Highly recommend!

I have stayed at Las Cabanas and El Tiburon, and honestly, you can not go wrong with either one. They are very similar in price, amenities, and management. Both American owners go out of their way to make sure you have what you need. El Tiburon is significantly closer to the main swimming beach, Marina, restaurants, and town square. No...

Dear Peggy, thank you for your complete and accurate comparison of Loreto accommodations. Yes, we just upgraded all the mattresses to luxury memory foam in the KIng rooms and most of the Queen beds. Plus we always have fresh non lumpy pillows!! If you want to be close to the Marina AND the town square, this is the place!

This place is amazing! I'm sorry I only booked for one week! It's a 'home away from home' ... four beautifully decorated and well equipped and cared for casitas in a secure and spacious courtyard adorned with hand painted murals, and a lovely pool and palapa area.

El Tiburon Casitas is the best place to stay in Loreto. The casitas are very close to the Malecon and central plaza. Liz makes sure you have everything you need, whether it is daily excursions or total relaxation. The Tempurpedic beds were a wonderful surprise as we have never had comfortable beds in our travels throughout Mexico. The casita courtyard...
