Old and tired, dowdy even. All the profits from this operation, if any, go into the owners' pockets and not into improvements. No heat in the rooms and it's in the 50's at night. Fireplace but no fires allowed. Big signs in the parking lot that the hotel is not responsible for car break-ins. Rooms have cheap locks which any... More

The rooms are clean, but they need an upgrade. The hacienda is very nice, and view of beach is too. I think by remodeling the rooms and bathrooms it will really increase its value. It was like staying at a Motel 8.

The Playa de Cortez hotel is a decent hotel but sadly not up to past standards of 20 years ago. We had a nice sea view suite but the furniture needs updating. Also the restaurant food was very mediocre. We did love the wood carvings of conquistadors in the bar and dining room.

The rooms were neat and clean. Could use coffee maker, fridge and a sealant around the door frame. It's a beautiful place...will return. The waiters at the restraunt...we're a little slow with the service. The breakfast buffet was awesome.

Went to Hermosillo to get a reservation for Hotel Cortes due to lack of phone service caused by heavy rains the week of August 9, 2015. Hotel Guarda is the parent, and they were very good at getting us a reservation. The hotel is located on the Sea of Cortez, in Guaymas, Mexico. Good location. The room was large, excellent... More

This hotel is 75 years old, with personality. Colonial style, beautiful wood work. Very comfortable rooms, good and very friendly staff. We had a little problem with our AC, they came and we change our room, this was fast and painless :)) Beautiful sightseeing, nice pool, the beaches are great for children. The restaurant and bar are really good, delicious... More

Rooms are clean and air conditioning works well! Pool is wonderful to swim in. Everyone was friendly and helpful! I have known the Playa de Cortes for 50 + years. We used to stay at the Miramar next door but go to the bar at the Playa because it was so lovely. The food is okay, really enjoyed the Veracruzano... More

We'll definitely be back. We got a Junior Suite on the end of the suites building, so for $77 we had two balconies, the largest facing the cove and the smaller one overlooking the gardens. Fabulous views, worth the price. "Suite" didn't mean a separate bedroom, it meant a large room with sitting area and the two queen beds. The... More

This is an old beautiful hotel located right on a bay of the Sea of Cortez. It is an old Spanish styled hotel built in the 1930's and decorated with some old Spanish antiques. There were lots of weddings there on the weekends we were there. The beds are hard and the hotel needs a facelift but it has lots... More

Hotel Playa de Cortes is Mexico of my youth. Some of the details like hot water or burnt out light bulbs is just a reminder you are in Mexico. No problema....poco tiempo. But the best part is the hotel on the whole. It's charm, the view, and location is perfect. Just grab a drink, walk across the pool area down... More
