I booked The Beachside hotel for Saturday and Sunday nights. However we arrived early Saturday morning at 4 a.m. We were hoping they would have a room available for us and it would be a bonus if we could get in the room we booked so we wouldn't have to move later in the day. I am horrible at remembering...

This was our first visit to this hotel and we will definitely be back. The room was clean. The pool and hot tub were perfect. And i really love the sundeck. The only negative was the pool bar was not open as we were there in November. But thats ok. When we arrived they gave us a choice of rooms....

We were in a low season so everything was calm and relaxing. Nice small gym and Internet was fast. Nice hot tube and friendly receptionist A bit humid and so smelly rooms but they fix the problem. No restaurant which is a down when you are far away from the centre Overall a nice stay

This is a great place for the value. I the beach is amazing here. I it's a older place so it's not flashy. The staff was awesome and friendly. Who wants to stay in a room with a beautiful beach and blue waters anyway

Pleasantly surprised ! This is an older facility, but very spacious, clean, and some recent updates. Definitely a "beach" hotel. Nice bar by the pool, pool was clean and well maintained. Nice grounds & landscaping. Right on the beach with excellent views, but away from the more crowded end of PCB. We will definitely be back !

We stayed at the Beachside Resort in mid October. It was a great location away from the craziness of the center of town. Beautiful beach. Though the room was not luxurious, it was very clean, had a very comfortable bed and pillows and relatively quiet air-conditioning. The view was amazing. Refrigerator and microwave came in handy. Even though the hotel...

I love this hotel. It was super quiet, a nice contrast to the other side of PCB. I stayed here twice in 2016. Each time, staff was very helpful and the property was very clean.

This is an older hotel that is built virtually side from the beach. True, it is ocean front, but you have to be hanging your head over the rail to see it. TV was out and they didn't tell me that during the booking process. A/C was not doing a very god job of keeping up either.

The bed was pretty hard. We were unable to get comfortable and rest due to the hard mattress on the bed. Also, there was a lot of noise coming from the room above us at times. The location was great. It was very clean and had great access to the beach. The staff was very accommodating.
