We stayed two nights at this wonderful property! Liz was a great host - very knowledgeable of the area. She took great care of us and arranged our airport taxi. The unit (#3) was perfect and well stocked. There wasn't anything missing that would be needed, even for cooking. We ate out each meal and appreciated the informational booklet that...

Long before we boarded the plane, Liz was working to make sure that our trip to Loreto would be all that we hoped. Did we want to fish? Book now to ensure a good captain. Do we dive or snorkel, like to hike, ride mules, camp in the desert, watch whales? She had good advice for getting the most out...

We spent a week at El Tiburon Casitas. The owner, Liz, could not have been more welcoming. Our casita was clean, well appointed with everything we needed. We were in walking distance of the charming little village, the ocean and great restaurants. Delicious Mexican food at reasonable prices. We loved the relaxing atmosphere of the courtyard, the service of our...

I have stayed in several different Loreto Hotel-Cabana type places many times over the years. El Tiburon Casitas is the newest Casita Hotel and closest to the Marina. El Tiburon Casitas deserves 5 stars for service, location and comfy beds and showers. You have to take into account that a 5 star rating on Trip Advisor is not the same...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your very positive 5 star review of El Tiburon Casitas. Yes our rates are 120 usd for 2017 for 2 persons. 2 night minimum.

First time in Loreto, and we will be back! Clean and nicely furnished accommodations; friendly and very helpful owner; very safe environment guarded by well-trained and well-tempered dogs. Very safe neighborhood a block from the beach/boardwalk/marina. This is the best place we have stayed in all of Mexico or elsewhere. Everything you could want: individual kitchenettes, private patio for residents,...

As a less expensive alternative to previous Hawaiian and Carribean vacations we chose Loreto for our first visit to Mexico. The desert was a change from the lush tropical islands. The El Tiburon Casitas were very clean , very comfortable, nicely decorated, and located within a short walk of the marina, beach and many cafes and shops. We took tours...

I am so happy your first visit to Loreto was worthy of a return visit. The seasons are very different here and sometimes the desert is green and lush depending on the rainfall. If you choose to come May to November the water will be warm and ideal for fabulous snorkelling! Winter is whale watching season and the Blue and...

Went to Loreto to go fishing and El Tiburon turned out to be, by far, the nicest place we've stayed in Loreto. We could walk to the malecon, and practically anywhere else too. The room was spotless, the grounds well cared for and a quite/calm atmosphere. Highly recommend!

I have stayed at Las Cabanas and El Tiburon, and honestly, you can not go wrong with either one. They are very similar in price, amenities, and management. Both American owners go out of their way to make sure you have what you need. El Tiburon is significantly closer to the main swimming beach, Marina, restaurants, and town square. No...

Dear Peggy, thank you for your complete and accurate comparison of Loreto accommodations. Yes, we just upgraded all the mattresses to luxury memory foam in the KIng rooms and most of the Queen beds. Plus we always have fresh non lumpy pillows!! If you want to be close to the Marina AND the town square, this is the place!
