Opened as an hotel & casino this building has great decoration that takes us back to the 30s. Visit the several rooms and bars, fountains and yards. It is great for a quick visit.
While I have seen the beautiful elegant building during my many visits to Ensenada and I always wanted to see it... I finally have the chance not only to admire but learned its interesting history... It was built as a hotel the 1930 in a luxurious dramatic style right on the beach of Ensenada for its wealthy and famous American... 更多
The building it beautiful and the history is colorful. Definitely didn't need a lot of time here to appreciate it for what it is. Never fails with vendors waiting for you, but their margarita was good!
Used as an event location for locals, this charming building is what's left from a prohibition casino and hotel complex for north Americans. Well worth a gander. Don't miss the original casino room rotunda with it's fantastic ceiling or the stunning wall paintings in the reception room just off of that painted by an artist who influenced muralist Diego Rivera.... 更多
we went with the tour from the cruise ship. What a surprise. The architecture was stunning, history amazing and the best margarita ever. Don't just take my word for it try one. its free with the tour and you can buy one for 3 USD. There is a little market outside. The venders will negotiate

But nudging and invitations from friends helped us experience a wealth of great performances. Jazz concerts on the outdoor stage, dancers on the platform under the canopy and performances inside the building. Jazz concerts, beautiful dancers, Ensenada orchestra, performances... 更多
The cultural center has a nice little museum that for a couple bucks donations. It used to be a hang out from Frank Sinatra and friends. The grounds are beautiful, you will often see wedding photos being taken. they also have frequent special events, we prefer the 'foodie' ones, great place to stroll around and enjoy the fresh sea air... 更多
Yes, I would recommend, especially if you are interested in the culture and history of Ensenada and the Mexican peoples. It's a small museum, within walking distance of the cruise ship terminal, less than 45 minutes to see if you take time to read the history. Much is in Spanish, but there are interpretation books available and much has both... 更多
This is a place to visit if in Ensenada with extra time. It will take you about 45 minutes to walk through and has some interesting information about the area.
