If you plan a trip to visit this specific resort, you are going to be very disappointed. We visited for the day from our cruise boat. The pool is filled with kids, stinks of chemicals, and the service is non existent. I can understand local mexican families visiting, but otherwise this run down resort has no place in terms of consideration for others visiting as a destination, even for the day.

We had read the reviews warning us of ants, so we tried preventing any problems by picking a second floor room. We even packed a can of Raid as a last-resort measure (my husband is mildly allergic to ant bites). Nothing could have prepared us for the army that awaited us. I sprayed all of the usual entry points. Still, when we returned from dinner, we saw the conga line streaming in from the ceiling and encircling our shoes and toiletries. I sprayed a perimeter around our possessions, but had to cede ground to the army in the bathroom - clearly they had contingency plans for all possible entry points. On the good side, the pool looked charming and the restaurant had lovely views for your morning coffee. The room itself was also reasonably clean and quiet, albeit slightly outdated (and with finicky door locks). Overall, a reasonable place to stay by the sea in Mexico, as long as you don't mind a family/army/horde of ants sharing your room.

While driving north toward Ensenada with dusk approaching we decided the Estero Beach might offer good relief to our road weariness. First impressions were good, though to call it a resort might be stretching it as much of the beach has disappeared and what remains is fairly small, wedged in between to stone walls. Our ocean view room was spacious. As there were not many guests we stayed in the delightful bar area for dinner rather than the BIG PROBLEM was the INVASION OF ANTS in the middle of the night - awoke to an army of ants TAKING OVER one of our suitcases --- we discarded some of our dirty clothes because there were simply too many ants to deal with.

All in all, it would have been a pleasant , relaxing stay, for the night had it not been for the ants.

My best friend was here in Ensenada and I took her to my favorite restaurant at the Estero Beach,the food is great, I love my chile relleno plate, and the have the best mix drinks, and the best ocean view. The waiters are very friendly and courteous.

We went to Estero to get info, and stopped to visit an acquaintance. We decided to eat at the restaurant there. The service was great. They had my favorite beer. The food was good and we had a great view! It was a nice pleasant walk around the grounds. Very relaxing.

What I didn't like
- Ant in the room
- View from the room: if you don't have an ocean view room, expect to see a parking lot
- Wi-fi: didn't work in the room, had to go out in the garden
- Bathroom: old and full of ant
- Very old and expensive
- Not relaxing: only big families with children, the pool was dirty and full of foam
- Beach in front of the resort: small and ridiculous. It is the landing for jet-sky so expect oil in the water and smell in the air

What I liked most:
- Location: far from the noise and sadness of Ensenada (a terrible town)
- Ok, you're at seaside

Room Tip: Ocean view is a must
