This was a truly a very special place. The room at the back had an ocean view and was very comfortable. The towels were really nice! Everything was very clean and quiet. Jason was an amazing host. I can't say enough good things about him and Paddy and the kids. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for 2 nights. Wish it could have been longer.
The courtyard was absolutely wonderful. I got lots of reading done on the hammock.
Once you enter the gates you are welcomed by a beautiful courtyard and the warm colors of Mexico. Another plus is the friendliness of the hosts. Breakfast is light, fresh and delicious. This is a good launching pad for explorations in the region, especially the waterfall hike.
The only drawback is the typical urban sounds, but one really can't do anything about the barking dogs, loud Mexican music, roosters crowing, occasional traffic or construction spikes. We had those sounds almost everywhere we went in Baja!
The property is clean and attractive. The amenities on site are basically a nice courtyard and patios with ocean views. Room was basic , but clean. Bathroom nicely tiled and great shower.
Nice basic breakfast every morning- one of our favorite parts was visiting with the other guests at breakfast. 10 minute walk to a totally deserted beach. Great swimming. Hotel provided beach chairs, towels, umbrella for free. The town of LaRibera does not have a lot to offer, but is centrally located about a hlf hour from Cabo Pulmo, a a national marine refuge with snorkeling and diving, and Los Barrieles, a small touristy town with lots of western bars and restaurants and famous for it's kiteboarding. The rates are vey reasonable . By far the high point was the American owner, Jason- he was just accommodating in every way without being submissive about it. Made you feel real comfortable. I thought we had paid in advance, and he told me only on the last day that we owed him-then he knocked off a few bucks when he converted to USD.
Large, comfortable rooms, beautiful courtyard, friendly hosts. Patty served us breakfast each day to get us going. Perfect Spanish was not necessary to communicate, which was a relief to us as beginners in the language. Rooms were kept very clean and tidy. Safe location with secure parking inside the gate. Our room was on the 2nd floor, and had a great balcony right outside where we spent time relaxing. The other guests were friendly as well, and we spent time in the mornings chatting before we all went out adventuring our own ways. La Ribera is a very small town with minimal facilities, but the hosts recommended a couple good restaurants within walking distance. While there isn't much to do in the town itself, we visited Santiago, Cabo Pulmo, and Los Barriles while we were there, and La Ribera sits right in the middle of all those, which made the location actually quite convenient. If you're looking for a well-priced, comfortable place away from the tourist traps and better integrated with the locals, this is it!
The owners are wonderful. This hotel has a wonderful outside garden area that is serene and quiet. There is a beautiful fountain with some great foliage. The rooms are spacious and clean. We will return!
Excellent quiet spot with a beautiful court yard, and close to any adventure you could imagine! Rooms are large, comfortable, and relaxing.
I've stayed here 3 times and every single time has been a wonderful experience. Caught 3 Marlin, and many other fish (Shark, Durado, etc.) The place itself is a very short walk to the beach and incredibly comfortable with it's own bathroom. Can't wait to go back.
