Reviews for Marina Fonatur (Singular)
Great town and nice marina, 2015-12-23
Captain: , San Diego, CA (1239)

We spent 5 days here in November 2015 waiting a bad norther to blow through. We had potable water delivered to the boat for 20 pesos per 5 gallon jug. The shore power worked well and the bathroom facilities were clean and nice, better than other Fonatur Marinas we have been to. Isabel in the office is a great lady with good English and helped us find services in town.
I'm giving the marina 5 stars because of the excellent service. The pool and hot tub were not open when we visited. It looked like they were under repairs as there was new concrete in the pool.
The town is cute and fun. Totally different from the rest of Baja. There are great tacos on the main street and hot dogs from a stand near the church. The main church in town is steel and was designed by Eifel (of the Eifel tower).
Great icecream at Splash.
There is a mining museum and you can walk through the old refinery. It's a cool town with a Mexican European vibe.

It's a Fonatur!, 2014-01-01
Captain: , San Diego (30)

If you've been to one Fonatur marina then you know the layout of them all. There are about 13 slips with power and water. The power was "clean" and reliable. The docks are strong with good cleats. We draw 7' and had no trouble at all with depth. Isabel at the office is awesome - she's very helpfull. There is sometimes fuel at the navy pier (they'll need to move the boat(s) to let you dock) and the marina is also across from a Pemex and they'll let you borrow a cart to haul jerry cans. It's a 5-10 minute walk into Santa Rosalia which is a great town. The showers / bathroom facilities leave some to be desired, so just use the facilities on your boat. Perhaps due to the minerals in the mountains in the area that are being mined, Santa Rosalia is a HF radio black hole -- you won't be able to hear any of the Ham or SSB nets. Luckily there's good Telcel coverage at the marina. This is a great stop!

Fonatur Santa Rosalia, 2013-04-10
Captain: , Kirkland, WA (4478)

We stayed 4 nights and wanted to stay longer. The town is very active and alive with many restaurants, bars, and several sights. Several mini-supermercado grocery stores, a number of fruterias, and a good panaderia. The one-person Fonatur is well run and very helpful. We had no problem getting space at the marina.

No fuel was available at the dock, only available from land Pemex station a very short distance away.

If you haven't been here before then put it on your list of places to go. Intersting town and good museum up steps at the back of town. The marina is the standard cookie cutter Fonutor marina but with more slips. We got a berth for our 62ft Nordhavn no problem

Nice marina and staff, 2011-06-10
Captain: , Newport, RI (10275)

Very friendly staff who speak Engish. Standard Fonatur design. Plenty of water at docks.

Note that the water is NOT potable!

I have had a couple of experiences which left me feeling like I was being being ripped off due to being a Gringo. When we got fuel, the final price was much too high and I wasn't provided with a receipt. The next day I discussed this with the marina manager and got a refund for the difference. I strongly suggest that you carefully watch the fuel pumps (which are located 20' overhead) and get a receipt for the fuel.
