Had $200.00 stolen from my wallet that was in my luggage tucked away. The supervisor refused to call the cops and said there was nothing he can do about it. The food is just ok. The staff is polite but really lazy. Do not stay here!!!

The location is perfect, has a very nice beach, and clean. The hotel is a little old but the service was great and it was clean. There are newer hotels but this one has the best sandy beach. We loved our stay!

We stayed at the San Carlos Plaza Hotel for the wedding of two friends of ours. We had not been into Mexico for many years because of the country's issues, but our stay was fabulous. The hotel could use a little fixing up in some places but that shouldn't hinder anyone from booking there. The room was very clean and... More

We booked at the San Carlos Plaza Hotel because they came up as "dog friendly". The booking was via Expedia. When we arrived, they would not allow us to even have our dog, on a leash and well behaved. walk through the lobby. We booked a room with a sea view but were shown a sad little affair facing a...

Beds are hard, staff unfriendly / indifferent, there were only 4 cars in the entire parking lot and we saw no one at the hotel, yet we had to ask for a room with a balcony May not be the worst place in SanCarlos but if you are used to US hotels you will be disappointed

The beds were good enough, nothing plush. The tc was the cheapest flat screen but I wasn't there to watch tv. The view was ok, but one is scared to touch the window. This hotel shows its age badly. Clearly no renovation but the restaurant and bad staff are superb. Just that mexican treat that you find in mexican towns,... More

We were staying nearby and wanted to try a restaurant that we could walk to/from as it was our friend's birthday. We didn't feel like Italian, so tried their International restaurant. We had a couple of drinks before we ordered food but were constantly were looking to catch the waiter's attention. When we finally ordered food, it took forever and... More

Took a lot of time to check-in, they were cleaning the rooms and got it almost at 6pm.. waited 30 minutes in the restaurant for a waiter.. had to go and eat outside... looks like they were not prepared for handling that kind of occupancy.

The property is older but well maintained and the bell staff and restaurant staff were very helpful and accommodating. great water front location and would stay again! Only complaint was the rooms were no smoking but folks were smoking on patios and we could not leave the windows open... More
