Nice resort hotel

Posted Oct 12, 2016 on Hotels
Excellent location on the beach. Close to a couple of neighborhood restaurants, plus it has it's own restaurant and a beach bar/restaurant adjacent. Comfortable stay. International clientele, mostly German and Belgian is my impression from the languages I heard. My stay in October had excellent weather and temperature.

Expectation management

To begin with the check in was incomplete, we were not informed about the additional costs such as beach club, beach front chairs, towel deposit. The hotel does not make the mark of a 4 star hotel. Room was too small for the two beds. I had requested a double bed. The larger pool was very crowded and noisy. The positives were the breakfast buffet and the spa services. Requested a late check out of only 30 minutes due to a scheduled spa treatment and was denied. Not my favorite stay.

Four-night stay (11-15 July 2016)

Posted Jul 24, 2016
Pros: Friendly staff, affordable food and drinks, comfortable rooms (A/C!).
Cons: Rooms were a bit tiny, but that's a minor issue for me. The Wifi was strong in the room, but around the hotel grounds it was spotty.
Location: The beach right outside has water activities (parasailing, sailboats, etc.). Downtown Rota is about a 5-minute drive. Cars (and mopeds) for rent.
Fantastic experience. The entire hotel was incredible. From the staff, to the food, to the grounds and the multiple swimming pools, Hotel Playa was definitely a memorable vacation. The Beach Club was fabulous. It reminded me of some of the South Beach waterfront hotels with the cabanas and white-washed beds for rent. Immaculate condition and it felt like they guest was VIP - especially with the rooftop views of the beach. The food and drinks were perfect. The tapas, the Sangria, the Tinto de Veranos...all were outstanding and most importantly, low-priced. Lots of activities to keep yourself occupied with (especially for the kids). Absolutely cannot WAIT to come back. Thank you, Hotel Playa.

Decent hotel for the beach.

Posted May 23, 2016 on Hotels
We only came here for the beach, and this hotel seemed like a good choice of location and beach access. The location is GREAT!!! for the beach, but is a little secluded for anything else. We walked along the beach for quite a distance in order to find a location for food/drinks. I guess this is good for the hotel, since it makes more people use their dining facilities. Considering the locale, coffee should be readily available and good quality. Instead, the only options for coffee in the hotel are two machines (lobby and restaurant). We were very disappointed, since we wanted to enjoy some good Spanish coffee on the beach. The hotel itself is a little old and the rooms are slightly run down. But, overall, we're happy with our choice. We will definitely stay again if we're in the area.

HEAVEN ON THE WATER!

Beautiful hotel! I received an upgraded room to a junior suite right on the beach. Absolutely fantastic view and relaxing sounds througout the night. Iv'e stayed there once before 30 years ago and almost forgot how impressive the hotel and its location is. Marvelous breakfast to finish the stayover!!

Great location

Posted May 9, 2016
Pros: Affordable, friendly, clean, good parking. It was a great all rounder in our opinion
Cons: Can't think of anything!
Location: The location is quite isolated and very little choice for restaurants and bars other than the hotel facilities
We had a very pleasant stay at this hotel and look forward to returning next year!
