This is probably not the best place for gringos to stay in Ensenada.
I had stayed here several years ago over Thanksgiving weekend with a former girlfriend when I was living in L.A., and I remembered it as a decent place with nice water views and fairly reasonable prices. So when my new wife and I decided to spend a couple of nights in Ensenada on our California vacation from the East Coast, I booked us here again.
It was not terrible but we would not stay here again. The pluses: the room itself was nicely decorated, large, and did have a nice view. It was not meticulously clean but it was OK, and my wife is pretty fastidious. The bathroom was a bit smelly but from our Cozumel honeymoon we knew to expect that.
room was on the third floor with no elevator -- I had to carry all our luggage up the stairs
No air-conditioning, not even a fan, and the placement of the room meant not even a breeze. It was stifling and I decided to drive into town and buy a fan to make our two night stay tolerable
The complex is very loud. Most of the people staying there are vacationing Mexicans and their norms of what is expected are simply different than that of most gringos -- a lot of loud partying and singing until very late at night.
