Residences: It Began In The Roaring 20‘s


In the 1920‘s along these beautiful beaches, Manuel Barbachano chased a dream. After starting what would become the first electricity and telephone company of the newly founded city of Tijuana --- using money earned from a paper route --- he bought the small 12-room hunting and fishing lodge called Rosarito Shores.

It was first opened to the public as a hotel in 1925. In 1932, the grand hotel foyer was constructed, as well as 50 additional rooms, the Salon Mexicano Ballroom and the Azteca restaurant. Senior Barbachano married the talented and beautiful Maria Louisa Chabert and set about building a mansion on the ocean that was worthy of his wife and family. That elegant mansion now forms the hotel‘s Casa Playa Spa and Chabert‘s restaurant.

The beauty of the hotel, its Mexican ambiance, impeccable service, exquisite food and drinks attracted Hollywood stars and filmmakers. They made the Rosarito Beach Hotel the place to be for the rich and famous.
