There was a previous review claiming they had bed bugs. Well, I believe the same thing happened to us a week ago when we stayed at La Fonda Hotel. We only stayed one night, but when my girlfriend and I went to get in bed there was sand in the sheets. Obviously nobody washed the sheets and the bed was...

This is for the famous Sunday brunch. We had it and you can not ask for a better meal for the price. It is $13.95 and includes coffee, bloody Mary or margaritas. They have all types of Mexican foods to omelets, pancake to ribs to soups to dessert. We had excellent service with plenty of coffee refills and took our...

This is just for the restaurant. I may have low expectations, but I thought it was a nice meal and an overall pleasant experience. It was a warm atmosphere. The band was subdued and nice. Our waiter was helpful and not intrusive. We compared the view to a fond time at the Kapalua Bay Club on Maui back in the...

CONS - Parking is super tight, like my car had to fit 3" on either side to avoid hitting a mid sized truck and the wall. Room was kinda cramped for three(room#6) no AC sliding screen door was tweeked and allowed bugs in. No tv, only three towels given no wash cloths. Hotel soap seriously stunk(did not smell good, more...

La Fonda is not for everyone, it wasn't for me. I am used to having certain standards, such as clean room, enough towels and amenity in bathroom, frige in a room etc. La Fonda has none of that. We did get shampoo and soap, but it stunk and we ended up using our own soap and shampoo, they gave us...

Another great deal in Mexico. This is just a restaurant review. We had brunch on Sunday. It was $13 USD and included a very large buffet and unlimited margaritas and bloody marys. We chose to sit on the balcony below the main seating area. A little cool, but they will give you blankets if you need. The view is unbeatable....

My first visit to La Fonda Resort was in 1994. Then, it was hard to find a working light bulb and a toilet that did not run all night, but the view, food, and service made up for all the shortcomings. My visit this past weekend is most likely my last. I believe there are new owners, and they have...

I've been coming here for about the last 10 years. It used to be one of my favorite places. However, I was here in February 2012 and I'm not sure I'll be coming back. The room was so bad, I couldn't think of anything else to do but laugh. The curtains were stuck and couldn't be closed on one window....

La Fonda means a lot to my new wife and I. She grew up going down there with her family and friends and I spent my childhood summers right up the road at a place called the Medio Camino. My family and I travel down there year round. We decided to get married at La Fonda this past St. Patrick's...
