Checking In: The Loreto Bay Golf Resort & Spa

Guide to Loreto, Mexico

Beachfront views, classic Mexican cuisine, and comfortable, yet affordable rooms. If these are things you’re searching for on your next trip to Mexico, look no further than the Loreto Bay Golf Resort and Spa. On my most recent trip to Loreto, I took a chance and stayed in a resort that had very few reviews. Lucky enough, I was pleasantly surprised by this oasis in the Mexican desert.

Checking In:

The resort is located in Loreto Bay, which is a small town located approximately 15 minutes from downtown Loreto, and 5 minutes from the airport by car. A taxi to town costs around 300 pesos and can be arranged by the concierge.

This resort is only 3 stories tall, with most of the rooms facing the Sea of Cortez, allowing for great views. The staff are extremely friendly and willing to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We originally ended up in a second story room without a balcony, and after requesting one, were able to change rooms for a better view!

Honestly, that balcony really made the trip for us. There’s nothing better than getting out of the mid-day heat and reading a book, but still being able to sit outside. All in the comfort of your own room!!

The employees at the front desk also speak english relatively well, and are eager to answer any questions you may have. Although, if you have questions on activities to do in the area, like hikes, it’s best to ask locals in town or tour guides. We found that although the staff knew of restaurants and basic information on Loreto, they couldn’t tell us where to go buy a new GoPro (when mine broke), or how to get to hiking trails, etc…

Activities:

The resort has bikes, paddle boards, kayaks, and snorkels/flippers included. You’re allowed to use each item for an hour a day and they are available from 9am to 5pm.

We found it’s pretty easy to get around these rules.

As long as nobody else wants to use them, you can play around on the boards, etc, for as long as your little heart desires. If you wish to go for a morning or evening venture out at sea, you just need to sign a waiver at the front desk.

Along with these activities is golfing, which is a huge draw for most guests (I am not a golfer). The course runs along the waters edge and is very well maintained. The resort is also placed next to Nopolo Rock, which is a perfectly sized hill for a casual climb. The views of the sea and surrounding area are amazing.

Dining:

With two restaurants, a poolside bar and a rooftop bar, Loreto Bay Resort has everything you need. Both restaurants serve traditional Mexican cuisine and are relatively cheap. They also have a breakfast buffet, and breakfast menu, which is free to everyone at the resort.

Many guests decide to opt in for the whole “all inclusive” thing, which we decided against. The food is delicious, but it does get old after eating there several days in a row. I would recommend a shorter visit, or dining at many different restaurants in Loreto to mix things up. By the end of our two week stay here, Mexican food was the last thing we wanted to eat. SO don’t make the same mistake as us, and try to mix it up a bit.

Near By:

The resort is nestled in Loreto Bay. You can tell that this area is not “local” Mexico, and more resembles a gated community. But with downtown Loreto only a 15 minute drive away, this didn’t bother me too much. The houses are built in shades of red, pink, blue, green, and beige, matching the seaside and desert colours. Canadian’s and American’s own the majority of these homes. There are two market shops and several restaurants in the area, all with their own uniqueness and flare.

Although I am normally the type to forego the resort scene, the Loreto Bay Golf Resort and Spa pleasantly surprised me. With its many activities and very few visitors, it allowed for a peaceful stay, full of adventure and exploration!
