By   Richard Scott

Probablemente planeaste tus próximas vacaciones usando el internet. Mientras algunos hoteles, restaurantes y desarollos tienen sus propias paginas web llenas de información, sabemos que a algunos detalles del viaje no les daremos gran importancia; la recomendación de alguien que ha estado en el lugar a donde tu quieres ir es valiosa.

Entra a; desde el año 2000, TripAdvisor es el sitio ideal para leer recomendaciones de personas que han estado en lo alto de la Estatua de la Libertad, han bailado en el Carnaval de Brasil, han comido en McDonalds En Mindanao, Philipinas! Además de su experienca personal y comentarios,los viajeros dan puntuacion al lugar que visitaron.

En los ultimos cuatro años, TripAdvisor ha otorgado un reconocimiento como premio a la excelencia a quienes obtienen la mejor puntuación de viajeros en todo el mundo; este año, Sonoran Sky Resort de Puerto Peñasco, recibio ese honor.

“El reconocimiento celebra la excelencia hospitalaria y es otorgado unicamente a empresas que constantemente reciben recomendaciones de viajeros en TripAdvisor.

Sonoran Sky esta ubicada en la hermosa Sandy Beach, tiene un ambiente mas intimo que algunos lugares. Tiene su propio spa, restaurante, areas de banquetes, alberca con wet bar y un detalle impresionante es el gimnasio con equipo de ejercicio mirando hacia la alberca que parece unirse con el Mar de Cortez. . . eso es mas saludable que mirar locuras en television, verdad?

Sonoran Sky ofrece condominios de una hasta cuatro recamaras completas con cocina, algunos con jacuzi en el patio, con arquitectura del Mexico Antiguo.

El reconocimiento de premio a la excelencia de TripAdvisor confirma que Sonoran Sky Resort es de lo mejor que ofrece Puerto Peñasco Sonora.

Sonoran Sky wins 2014 Certificate of Excellence Award


You have probably researched your next vacation getaway using the internet. And while most hotels, restaurants, and resorts have their own websites full of info, we know that some of the frustrating details of travel just might get left aside. If your hotels’ electricity cuts out every night, are they really just celebrating Earth Day? A review from someone who has already been where you want to go is invaluable.

Enter Since 2000, TripAdvisor has been the place to read comments from people who have actually gone to the top of the Statue of Liberty, danced Carnaval in Brazil, or had lunch at McDonalds’ in Mindanao, Philippines (“over other burgers in town Mcdo cheeze burger is what i love most..because of their cheeze so cheezy!”). Along with their personal experience, travelers give a rating. For the past four years, TripAdvisor has awarded a Certificate of Excellence to those who are ranked among the best, worldwide. This year, Rocky Points’ Sonoran Sky Resort received the honor.

“The award celebrates hospitality excellence and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor. Establishments awarded the Certificate of Excellence are located all over the world and represent the upper echelon of businesses listed on the website.” states TripAdvisor. Making this an even bigger deal is the fact that this is the first time vacation rentals are eligable.

Sonoran Sky sits on beautiful Sandy Beach, and feels more intimate than some of the larger places. Still, it is a complete resort with its’ own spa, restaurant, banquet facility and swim up bar. One nice touch is a gym with exercise machines that face out over the zero-edge pool with a view to the Sea of Cortez beyond. That’s got to be healthier than watching the latest crazyness on T.V., no? Sonoran Sky offers one to four bedrooms that are complete with kitchens, some with jacuzzis on the patio, and a feel for the architecture of Old Mexico.

The 2014 Certificate of Excellence Award from TripAdvisor confirms Sonoran Sky Resort as among the best that Rocky Point has to offer.  By Richard Scott

Funkalicious volley ball at Sonoran Sun



imageThe Funky Business Beach Ball Tournament roars into town this weekend. What is it? Funkalicious is the Phoenix volley ball league that knows how to party. Twice a year since 2009, Rocky Point has been the site for their most anticipated tourney.
The Sonoran Sun Resort is the location this time around. Courts are set up on the beach right in front, with taco stands and drink specials available during Saturdays’ tournament play. Friday and Sunday offer free play, open to those registered to stay through Seaside Reservations. (The Sonoran Sun is fully booked. Bella Sirena and the Sonoran Sky Resort are suggested as nearby alternatives).
Volleyball Magazine places this event on its list of top tourneys for Spring 2014. Known for being well organized with competitive play at all levels, Funkalicious starts the fun with the Opening Party at Banditos. Mexican Moonshine Tequila will be presenting $5 Margaritas, and none other than Roger Clyne will be playing an acoustic set! Saturday nights post tourney party will be at Wrecked at the Reef.
Come on down and enjoy superior volley ball at the beach, starting this Friday, April 11th. Visit the Funkalicious website or facebook page for more details.

Roger Clyne opens Banditos on Sandy Beach

imageThe word was out. Rumour had it that Roger Clyne would be taking over The Hut, a popular watering hole along Rocky Points’ Sandy Beach. Confirmation came from the Mexican Moonshine page on Facebook . . .

Ladrones, libertines, lushes and lovers,

For those who seek
high spirits, positive vibrations & good medicine
in the finest company:
come slip away and steal some time for yourself,
find shelter in the shade with party-going peacemakers in our prodigious palapa,
come relish Mexican Moonshine margaritas,
revel in mirth, music and merriment!

Where “the good guys and the bad guys never work past noon,”

we’ve a place for those who “do the don’ts & don’t the do’s,”

when you “gotta go a little loco to stay sane,”

while you let “your heart and your cup overflow,”

and delightfully declare that

“life is grand, love is real, and beauty is everywhere!”

We offer refuge and refreshment,
a respite for the rebel soul!

Come tip big with pesos and besos
at our humble hide-out,
our second home,
which we will name simply
and simply name,


Here’s to Life!

Clyne and the Peacemakers have played here before, from Circus Mexicus to solo sets by Roger (see the recent article). With stages inside and out, Banditos promises to be a focal point for live music in Puerto Peñasco. Banditos big palapa roof is easy to spot when staying in Rocky Point.

Sonoran Sky Event Planning Special

Sonoran Sky Events

Olympia Watson

Olympia Watson carries a notebook with ‘All you need is love’ printed on the cover. “This is my philosophy” she tells me. As Event Planner for the Sonoran Sky Resort, her love for creating just the right setting for an anniversary, a wedding, or any get-together is neccesary for success. So is being really organized.
“Can you be playing when the guests walk in?” She asks the sax player while posing for a publicity photo. We stand next to the elegant leaded glass doors of the Los Volcanes Salon, inside the Sonoran Sky. “This is an intimate dinner party for Valentines’ Day,  just a few tables. But we can have receptions for 200 people here, plus a band.”

The Girl from Ipanema plays as people take their seats. Candlight and gold table imagecloths, champaign glasses and waiters in black and white. A pleasant murmur of conversation as a full moon rises outside the tall arched window.

“My work as planner is free for clients using Sonoran Sky Events” says Olympia. “We offer great packages for beach weddings right here at the resort”(see the offer for Seaside Mexico Reservation clients below).
Chocolate covered strawberries complete the dinner, and the guests head to the elevators. Olympia leads the way. “Oly” someone asks, “what’s next?” Pressing the ground floor button, she smiles over her shoulder “A surprise.”

The swimming pools glow neon blue in the night as we pass them on our way to the beach. A strong ocean breeze, not there before dinner, tries to push us back into the lobby. This is not the surprise Oly had in mind.

Two helpers struggle to hold the orange paper ballon, as another flicks a lighter over and over, trying to light the candle that will make it fly. “Play something please.” Touching the arm of the sax player as she goes, Olympia casually walks to where the guests gather. Quickly she gets one, and then a second balloon lit. Disaster averted.

Twilight at Sonoran sky

Twilight at Sonoran sky

A toast! Glasses raised to a wonderful time at a beautiful place. Everyone ‘ooohh’s as the glowing balloons slowly rise. Up above the lights of the Sonoran Sky Resort, the moon waits to meet them. As if it was planned.
