The Playa Bonita is an older building but is very well maintained and has elegance and pleasing layout. Bedrooms are basic and very clean. Nice deep bath. Balconies and ocean views. The restaurant and adjoining bar overlooks the beach and the decor creates a good feeling. You have a choice of eating indoors or alfresco on its patio. The food...

This property is not a 5 star but it is clean, affordable and right on the beach. All rooms have a balcony with a view. Slated view no full on but still beautiful and you are on the beach. Free coffee in lobby which you can take out to the pool area and sit at a table just a few...

Just stayed here for 4 nights with my boyfriend. I have been to Mexico many times..this was our first time to Puerto Penasco and it is beautiful. Check in- When we checked in or had questions at the front desk they were not very kind...or cheery, unlike other resorts where you get a big fat welcome upon arrival..we barely got...

The location on the beach is beautiful. The rooms are adequate. The mattresses are a bit hard. The decor is a bit spartan but adequate and every room has a balcony and view. The people are helpful. There is a good restaurant and patio bar attached to the hotel. It is very clean. The sound carries and so it is...

Best deal on beach and still short taxi to downtown. Has decent restaurant and bar. Staff very helpful. Decent views from almost all rooms. Rooms clean and beds comfortable. Booking site was acting up but phone call worked fine.

Clean, friendly and while not as modern as other resorts, this place has character and is well worth the cost. Restaurant excellent with atmosphere and good service. Food good. Great beach location. If you are looking for 5 star, this is not the place for you but we will be back!

Day 3-4 of our 8 day road trip. Nice room, with beach view from balcony. Onsite restaurant was good. Happy hour margarita was excellent. We were on a nice stretch of beach. Murals at public beach access were nice. A good walk to the old port area, but easily walk-able. Uber and taxis available for evening travel if you want.

For $80usd, you couldnt beat this place, right on the beach. Rooms were clean, good running water, toilet, showers, all good. a/c very cold. Beds was comfy, I can say the blankets and sheets were ugly... if I were a snob and really wanted to nitpick, but im not, as long as the sheets and blankets were clean and kept...

Mexican shrimp cocktail is tasty. Fish tacos are excellent and can be shared, as portion is big! Margaritas are tasty. Service is good; one man band was most enjoyable. Sitting on patio makes for an pleasant dining experience.

just spent two days here, great location, very clean but oh so old! This place needs a major renovation and the painting they are doing is not going to bring it up to today's hotel standards. The rates do not make it a value place to stay so might as well go somewhere newer and nicer for close to the...
