“Great Accomidations, Great People, Great Fishing, Great Food, A+++”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

We have stayed in all of the East Cape resorts over many trips over the last 40 years. This was our first stay at Rancho Leonero in 20 years and after staying there this trip, everyone in our group said "we should have been back much sooner". The resort is in very good condition, the rooms are large, comfortable very clean and the air conditioning worked very well. The food is excellant (people staying at other resorts come here to eat), and the employees are extremely helpful and freindly. If you are there to fish, the resort has fishing boats of all sizes with excellant skippers and deck hands. The boats are equiped with fishing tackle if you chose not to bring your own. The owners and managers are always there to take care of your needs, where other resorts in the area sometimes are unattended. The setting is fabulous, away from the mainstream with one of the best beaches and view in Baja. Scuba diving or snorkleing is also very good straight out in front of Rancho Leonero. Overall it is an A+++ and should not be missed.

This is our second visit to the Ranch , another excellent experience. The staff , fishing and accommodations were great and I think the meals were even better than last trip. If you want a five star hotel with those amenities this is not your place, The Ranch is about as laid back as it comes, if you can imagine the 1950's , this is close. The water was warm , fishing great and the Pacifico was ice cold.

Having passed by the sign for the Rancho Leonardo many times we decided to stop in for a drink and see what this place was all about. If you are a fisherman looking for nice rooms with with a gorgeous view just steps away, this is it. The pool looked very inviting and the bar, restaurant was dark and cool looking in the heat of the day. We were given a quick tour and some of the history by a staff member and all and all had a pleasant time. It is a bit isolated and the road there is a slow one but the end result is a good one. I would make sure I had what I needed before I got there as the stores are a ways away but for a fishing resort for some friends to get together it is perfect.

This place is a real find. The resort is clean and the people are extremely nice. We had such a great time. The fishing was excellent and we will definitely be coming back. I would highly recommend this place.

Our family and friends have visited Rancho for many years. We love the Fishing, breathtaking views,amazing meals and comfortable anemnities they provide. The staff is warm and welcoming and they always make you feel like you are the only person there! So special!

We love it and we will continue to return to Rancho Leonero- it is safe and welcoming and the best place to vacation bar none!!

We stayed here for one night during our vacation to Cabo San Lucas in July 2011. We had stayed in Los Barriles before and remembered it fondly, and had always seen signs to this hotel and were curious. So we requested a room.

We were welcomed and given a tour of the property by a young intern who learned English by playing video games online! We booked a room. The accommodations are very simple and are catered mostly to people on game fishing trips. We would have liked the a/c to work a little better, but in July it's understandable how a smile unit in a small resort couldn't totally keep up with the Baja heat. This is not a luxury resort. But it was clean and had all of the amenities you would need for a vacation of good value and relaxation - a pool, a beautiful view, and well kept grounds.

Here's the intangible: you really feel that you've gone back in time when you stay here. Something indescribabable made me forget about cell phones and televisions. Most of all, the guests are friendly. How many times have you gne to a nice hotel only to be joined by spoiled rotten, obnoxious, and ill-behaved guests? You won't encounter that here.

The meals that were included we're very good, though I wish for dinner there had been an option for someone who is allergic to shrimp. But I had plenty of salad and was generously offered some of the delicious catch from some of the fishing guests, (and to be fair, I didn't tell the kitchen in advance that the dinner would be shrimp). The full breakfast was really a full breakfast including items like eggs, fruit, bacon, and French toast and more.

The location was perhaps the best part. The hotel is on a hill overlooking the beach (though it is easy to step down to the beach). The beach is long and pristine. At night, it's funny to see the cows wandering on the beach! At night, the property is quiet, which might not be for everyone. But most who stay here are "day" travelers - if you want nightlife, go to Cabo 90 minutes away.

There was a little bit of a dispute about check out (I can't really remember what it was now), but it obviously didn't overshadow our trip.

Room Tip: Get a deluxe room because the beds will be more comfortable.

This hotel is not for everyone. It is clean. It has miles of white sand beaches with hardly another person in sight. If you are looking for night life and shopping, this is not going to be the place to go. If you like solitude, good fishing, good service, and nice people you will probably like it.

This is no room service. There is one TV in the bar that is usually not on. There are no phones in the rooms. You can bring your own fishing gear down and fish from a boat or fish for free off the beach. There is also very good snorkling and kayaks are for rent cheap.

The place is pretty much deserted between 7 AM and 3 PM when the fishing boats are out. Once the boats have been launched and the fishermen gone, it is very quiet. The fishermen also go to sleep pretty early so it is also quiet in the evenings, too.

The price of the room includes 3 meals a day and the food is good to excellent.

Room Tip: go to the website to see a map of the rooms. The rooms above the office have no foot traffic and are...
