Ensenada Refuge
Very nice apartment within walking distance to the central tourist zone of Enseneda where all the main clubs and bars are at. The apartment is also a 25 minute drive to wine country (Valle de Guadalupe). The area is also safe.

Great Stay in Ensenada
El Refugio made our trip to Ensenada. Upon arrival we were met by Rigo who promptly provided keys and showed us around the unit. The location was great and walking distance to all that downtown has to offer (1st street, fish market, restaurants, marina). Also a short 40min drive to Valle de Guadalupe/wine country. Price was definitely high compared to other options, but you’re also not getting a 2 bedroom apartment, gated/private parking, and full kitchen with those. Great stay.

8/10 Very good

Great view
Easy to get to. Access kind of tricky. Property really nice with a nice view. There is no front desk or office so paying at the property took forever since the terminal wasn’t working. Had to go to the bank to pay in cash with the risk of having the card blocked because of so many attempts to pay. Advertised with washer and drier but no laundry detergent. Overall it was a nice stay.
