This Baja hotel first opened in 1925 and has since attracted the likes of celebrities and dignitaries from around the globe. Just 30 miles south of San Diego, the Rosarito makes for a quick getaway from California. The 500-room hotel is a full-service resort in a variety of buildings offering views of the Pacific and the Coronado Islands. Standard oceanfront rooms have a king or two double bed in an eight-story tower. (These do not have air conditioning.) Playas Tower Rooms are in three-story buildings and are suites with kitchenettes, perfect for families. Pacifico Tower Rooms are in a 17-story building and the newest on the property. These also feature suites with kitchenettes.
Dining at the resort includes the original Azteca Colonial-style restaurant, the Beachcombers bar and a rooftop lounge on the 17th floor. Rosarito Beach Hotel offers a free kids club during the summer and holidays that includes arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, games and a kiddies pool. The beachfront hotel provides a place for swimming, surfing and more. A full-service spa is also on premises.

We paid $100.00 dollars to stay here and from the moment we entered this institution we knew we should have driven on ! But having paid through booking.com we were caught in that non refundable way!
It’s old and tired and the rooms are akin to what one would expect in a hostel! Yellow walls and yellow sheets, broken bed frames and old bed spreads. When we tried to upgrade the receptionist offered us an option for a further $90. Oh please are you serious!
The only other occupants were students who with their red party cups and packs of dorritos piled into the jacuzzi ! What fun and pretty sure they weren’t paying the silly rate we had booked through Booking.com x lesson to self - book direct next time!
