Nice to spend the night, just enough to have a comfortable night. Very clean and people were very kind. You get around easily from there. If you bring a car, there is no parking lot but you can park your car outside without any problem... there is a guy that watches over it.

The Alcatraz hotel in Puerto san Carlos on Magdelena Bay is very clean and very easy to find on one of the few paved roads in this little town. So less dust. Rooms come off the inner courtyard and are in the back. So very quiet. Cash only. I did not see a bank in this town. Bigger town, Comondo/Constitution...

The manager Daniela was very sweet and accomodating. We just happened upon this place and were very happy. We met Danny who took us out on his boat to see whales. If you want to go out on a Panga, find Danny! You will not be disappointed. Nice courtyard and food. The room was basic, but it was just fine....

Stayed here twice this winter for whale watching; once in January, once in February. Not the most modern, but very clean and friendly. Food was fantastic!! Danny is the best whale watching captain. Mamasita runs a great kitchen.

We had a master suite that had a king bed, twin bed and a couch. Good sleeping accommodations for our family of 5. It is in a great location to walk around and check out the little town. The staff was very friendly. The food was really really good but a bit expensive and takes a while to prepare... but...

Drove up to San Carlos on a whim to go see the whales, we arrived around 4pm and thought we would find a place easy enough to stay. Our 1st three choices (2 were booked and the other was nasty) so we found this on the main strip. Got a room with 2 queens and it was tidy and in...

Lodging options are limited in Puerto San Carlos. This is a classic Spanish building with everything off a walled in courtyard. Entry is through two massive doors into a tree shaded courtyard. Dinng is in the courtyard, rooms on the edge. There is nothing cookie cutter about this place. It has character.. The rooms are quite small, bed, night stand,...

We've visited San Carlos many times, but this was our first time at this hotel which was head and shoulders above what we were used too. Of course we were paying a lot more too, but it was worth it. However I do think we got the best room and at a discounted price as this was the slow season....
