This was my second time in this hotel. Our last visit was in 2010 and we had good memories about the place. This time, the hotel left a lot to be desired. First, the good. The staff was very friendly. Our kids had a great time at the pool. Now, the not so good. The room was OK. But we... More

I went down with some friends for five nights and we had a different variety of rooms. I must say the pictures they post online for the lower end rooms ARE NOT accurate. Do not expect a nice updated room, there pretty dilapidated to say the least. The higher end rooms are rather nice with a much better view also.... More

Located on cotton beach and within walking distance (via the beach) to great bars/restaurants like soggy peso and la salsa. We got to our room and instantly noticed the noisy a/c. We ended up changing rooms because it was too loud..a bit of resistance came from the front staff although we were grateful to have moved. The ice machine area... More

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
