Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 January 2009

We stayed at the Hotel Coral a couple of times while we had our boat in their Marina. The Junior Suites are large, comfortable rooms with beautiful views. The spa has a nice though small workout facility, steam room, and sauna in addition to the two swimming pools and jacuzzis. I got excellent pedicures and a haircut at very reasonable prices.

All of the staff is very friendly and go out of their way to help you. We really enjoyed our stay in the Marina, and can also highly recommend Baja Naval for any work you need done on your boat.

We have berthed our yacht in the Coral Marina since November 2008 and used the facilities of the hotel, since you are a registered guest of the hotel when you rent a slip in the marina. A number of years ago, we stayed at the Coral hotel while attending the Ensenada wine festival (yes, they have very good wineries in the valleys behind the city) and thought "Gee, if we ever bring a boat to Mexico, this is where we would want to stay!"

It has turned out that our expectations were more than met. Most people will be interested in comments on the hotel, and all we can say is that the place deserves its reputation as one of the best resorts in the area. Especially great is the experience of drinks and the appetizer menu in the bar - be sure to spend an evening there. Also don't miss some of the Mexican menu items in the restaurant - breakfast is a real experience if you are willing to try some new ideas. The staff is very helpful with any questions you have, from explaining the food to letting you know where the local restaurants and sights are.

As an example, the marina staff took several of us boaters to Migracion to register our boats and obtain import permits as is required by Mexican law. They took several of us in a hotel van, and the marina representative personally dealt with the local offcials to ease our way through Mexican customs and beraucracy for what we all agreed was a very reasonable fee. The same type of services have been provided by the hotel to meet guests needs. I wish that we could find the same level of help and service in American hotels operating on the same level.

My family and I just returned from a 4 day stay at the Hotel Coral and it was oustanding in every way. From the heated indoor pool to the large rooms we were impresed by the Hotel. For those of you TripAdvisor service "nuts" even you would have been pleased. Every single staff person that we encounterted was kind and helpful. For whatever its worth the staff were also bi-lingual. Check-in was a breeze. We arrived on a Thursday around 1:00 and were immediately shown to our room, a Jr. Suite. on the 4th floor (403) that had an incredible view and was perfectly prepared. The Hotel grounds are expertly maintained and the marina itself is right in front of the Hotel. The boats were beautiful but we're not part of the sailing and boating crowd so I can't comment on the service at the Marina. We ate at their restaurant at the Saturday brunch and it was fantastic and the food was plentiful. The Hotel itself is ideally located about about a 10 minute drive (or less) into the area of town that everyone goes to and is only a $6.00 cab ride (1 way) into town. Parking costs around $10.00 if you drive yourself but we found it a lot easier to take a taxi. The Hotel has a contract with the Yellow Cab company so your $6.00 rate is guaranteed. As to any safety concerns we had none. The Hotel has its own security and we felt completely safe at all times. The same for Ensenada and La Bufadora. My 9 year old son had a blast. He loved the pools and we always found other kids to hang out with at the indoor pool. The Hotel also has a kids program for the 4-7 crowd that looked to be a lot of fun and it was very well organized. We would recommend the Hotel Coral to all who would visit Ensenada and we can't wait to return.

I have my boat in their Marina and have full access to the hotel. Fito the dock manager is always available and fuel at the marina is less than half of California charges. The facility is very secure and there are top notch services available from waxing, washing, and bottom cleaning to charter fishing with "Sammy" and his dad, great time!
I would recommend this location to all boaters.

I agree with most of the other posts in that this is truely an excelllent hotel. The jr. Suite is excellent and very roomy. Almost like having your own condo. The views of the marina and ocean are spectacular. The way the hotel is set up I don't belive there is a room with nothing less then a great view. All staff spoke good english, grounds well kept and very safe. Taxi ride into town is only $6 and takes just a few minutes. Ensenada has really developed itself since I was there a few years ago. Its a very nice city and this hotel is definately the place to stay when visiting. I don't have a negative thing to say as everything was great and I will definately be back !

Impressed upon arrival ! Great service, very spacious rooms, wonderful food, beautiful views! The pool was very nice, full of familes having a great time. Indoor pool and spa too. We booked a hot rock massage, many services are available. It is about a $8 cab ride to town. Town is very clean and upscale. Do your shopping when the cruise ships are not in port, but keep in mind the shops close earlier these days. I was suprised the hotels gift shop had the same prices as stores in town for local items & art.

Overall we ha a wonderful stay and did not want to leave! We will return again!
