“You can do better elsewhere.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

They gave us a special deal (108) for the honeymoon suite which had a jacuzzi. The room was cheesy, smelled bad and we were grossed out by the jacuzzi (although it had a romantic mosquito net over the bed). The only shower was a hand wand which was busted. The person who recommended it said they had kayaks you could take for a morning tour - when we asked, they replied that the fleet was disabled except for one working kayak. The beach views are nice.
Upon checkout I informed management (before I wrote this review) and asked what they could offer to restore our experience. They offered us free breakfast, except they already made us pay cash for our breakfast as they would not allow charges to our room (despite a credit card on file??). With that option gone, we asked if there were anything else they could do and they responded that was all they could offer, so we thanked them and politely left.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

Wife and I, along with another couple, recently stayed at La Concha Beach Resort. No mas! The nicest feature about the place is the lobby. It's all downhill after that. While "location" may be everything, in the case of La Concha it's the only thing. The rooms are totally worn-out, the bedding and towels are thread-bare, and the physical plant so in need of repair one would hardly know where to start.

There wasa a two inch gap between the bottom of our room's door and the threshold. Fortunately, we had brought a beach towel that we stuffed in the opening to keep the critters out while we were in the room. The bed itself was as hard as a rock, with a top mattress that was some kind of rubber-like material. It was so low to the ground that getting out of bed was not second nature.

Many of the chairs around the bar pool were so worn and dirty, we felt uncomfortable sitting in them ... both from a sanitary and structural point of view.

While many rooms are designated non-smoking", this is not enforced. The other couple had to change rooms when the smoke from a neighboring room infiltrated their nearby room.

Until and unless a major renovation is undertaken, likely at great expense, this place should be avoided. Sadly, I suspect, it may have once been a glorious resort. Felt bad for the wait staff.

We had read many mixed reviews about this place and other hotels in the area when we planned our dive trip in the Sea of Cortez in September 2013. We are very pleased with our choice in La Concha! The dive shop is only a few steps away and although the hotel itself is showing its age a little, we found it to be perfectly suitable and comfortable. We had a balcony overlooking the sea and the pool area, in room fridge and flat screen tv. The room service was fast, friendly and they seemed to try and accommodate you as best as possible. It's not a super fancy mega resort, but it's low key and has a lot of charm. I hope to return again soon. The diving exceeded our expectations. Mantas, sea lions, whales, dolphins were daily sightings. But we did not see any hammerheads :-(

Location Location!! Not the best rooms ever but the bed was very very comfortable. Sheets and bedding wasn't over the top but man was the view amazing. Plus is it came with a free breakfast! I will be back! We searched all over last minute to find a place to sleep on a last minute road trip, and I am so happy we stayed here! Just ask for a room on the second or third floor!!!

Room Tip: I would ask for a room over looking the beach and on the second floor and above.

La Concha hotel is really conveniently situated, just outside town to avoid the business and traffic.
The beach is quite private and just the place to watch the beautiful sunsets. The staff are really helpful and friendly and you can see the sea from all the rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for the third floor and the side nearest to the town

Caferia staff are very courteous and helpful. The adjacent diving club, with whom we had skin diving trip, has very capable staff. Also, La Paz provides many encounters with sea life such as whale shark, sea lion. 10 pedo taxi ride from beach front down town. Food there is not bad. Great for family.

A group of us spent a nite here on way to another location. Hotel rooms are dated. They require some TLC. The food in hotel restaurant was pretty good but overpriced compared to what is available in La Paz. $20.00 for shrimp and $4.00 for a Cerveza is too much. The pool area and pool bar look like a lot of fun could happen here. The staff especially the ladies at the front desk are very good. With some TLC this could be a great spot.
