AllMusic Review by

The cheesecake cover shot of Baile Erotico: Fiesta Latina is a little misleading. Despite assurances to the contrary, the release has not collected "Latin America's hottest rhythms and pulsating beats." In reality, the 16 salsa and mambo numbers here are straightforward and entertaining, but are traditional in nature and lack fidelity. It has a mature, classy feel to it, as if meant for a fun-filled evening dancing with aunts and uncles at an outdoor family gathering. There are plenty of Latin dance collections that do offer the sweaty, danceable set suggested by Baile Erotico's adjectives and artwork, but this isn't one of them.
