La Fonda Hotel, Bar and Restaurant


Just 45 minutes south of the Tijuana border on the spectacular Baja coast, perched above a sandy white beach and overlooking the blue Pacific, is our long time favorite spot for locals and visitors alike, La Fonda Hotel, Bar and Restaurant. Now boasting an extensive new Spa, La Fonda still offers the Baja traveler a retreat to a piece of old Mexico. Rooms, each unique in nature and surrounded by tumbling Bougainvillea and banana palms, randomly dot the bluff overlooking 180 degrees of sand and sea. This is truly your own private piece of Paradise Lost.

Hotel La Fonda offers 47 charming rooms and suites, each unique, most with fireplaces. See the sea, hear the surf, watch the sunsets and kick back and relax from you own private patio or balcony. Time stops here. Let worries and cares wash out with the tide, and peace and calm enfold you in this ageless setting.

The La Fonda Restaurant offers a wonderful dining experience. Watch dolphins play in the waves, while you enjoy a sumptuous lunch out on the patio, complete with hand-made tortillas. At night, dine in the magical atmosphere that only La Fonda can conjure and watch the sunset. Lobster feasts, candle light, live music nightly, and the feeling that you’re being welcomed home has been bringing guests back to La Fonda for decades.

Not to be missed is the La Fonda Sunday Brunch. It is like nothing you have ever seen. Dish upon dish of steaming Mexican delicacies from Paella to pancakes, accompanied by all the Bloody Mary’s you can drink.

The beautiful new full service La Fonda Spa will complete your getaway or vacation. Offering an enticing array of treatments and services, many treatment rooms even have ocean views! Try their romantic spa bath for two, complete with champagne, overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Their friendly staff consists of highly trained massage therapists, who effectively relax muscles, increase circulation and improve joint mobility using hot and deep tissue techniques. Before or after a massage you can enjoy a saunas and steam room.

And for the pet lover, Hotel La Fonda also has Kinda La Fonda, a pet-friendly hotel, mere meters away.
