    B- rating

    There was a strong sewer smell on the last day of our stay in the hallway around room 105.

    Bad service, but good locarion

    Jacuzzi has a great view of the beach but was too cold to use.. We asked several times to have the heat turned on to no avail. Pools are not heated either so amenities are worthless in the winter. WI FI didn't work at least half of one day and the office staff wasn't helpful. No ice on site and the water coolers were empty. The hotel was under construction when we visited but we received no warning about the dirty mess and the constant loud noise all day long. You couldn't even sit on the beach outside the hotel without your nerves fraying due to the noise. And of course they gave us a room right next to the construction. Rooms are Motel 6 quality and not worthy of resort status. Front desk staff never friendly or helpful and conveniently didn't speak English very well. However, the location is great. Right on the beach.

    5/5 Excellent

    Great value beautiful view

    Playa Bonita exceeded our expectations. Fantastic view from our room. Nice beach. Polite English speaking staff. That said, the bathroom had minor plumbing issues that didn't really affect us, but if you're looking for a resort with American standards, these little things might bug you. It was a little loud, but for the price, Location and security we will be back.

    Beautiful building, poorly maintained.

    Loved the location and the beach. The Hotel is was a beautiful structure, but looks like maybe they haven't recovered from the last recession. Broken glass panes in the elevator, hallways not air conditioned nor room cooled prior to our arrival. I understand about conserving electricity, but you are in the Sonoran desert and charge around 100$ per night, I am expecting to be cool inside the building. There are no microwaves or fridges in the room. Wi-Fi was TERRIBLE. I would have been better off with a stable dial-up connection. Housekeeping barely touched the room when we were out. The Puesta del Sol restaurant next door was a nice bonus. Could be amazing with some better attention to what the guest wants.

    Pros: Location, architecture

    Cons: Wi-Fi, housekeeping, general up keep of facilities

    Location: One of the nicer beaches near the center of the city. Restaurant next door was perfect. Tide pools to view sea life

    Stayed 4 nights in Jul 2017


    Overall horrible experience especially for the price. The air conditioning was broken in our room, the walls are so thin you can hear everything, the onsite restaurant was terrible. Nothing good to say.
