I stayed here 2009 and my overall experience was a little above average. I was not necessarily disappointed but I was surely not impressed. I decided to give it a second chance and what a good decision that was! The hotel seems to be a completely new hotel. So many changes have been made it seems as though they decided... More

We stayed at the Rockaway for a week in Jan 2012. The hotel has all the makings of a great little place - cheap cabanas perfect for travellers, and more sturdy aircon rooms for people who can afford the jump in price. We stayed in one of the cabana's as a travelling couple on our late 20's. They were rustic,... More

We stayed a week in one of the cabanas facing the swimming pool. The rooms are cleaned daily and have one double bed and bunk beds with mosquito nets on all and a really nice bathroom with shower. In October it is very hot. There's a ceiling fan and another larger plug-in fan and the room does cool down towards... More

During our stay it was really quiet (what we liked!) in compare with other accommodations. The rooms (double with aircon and van) are reasonably priced (500 pesos/night). We think the employees are not really friendly. The options they offer are good: 2h surflesson for only 300 pesos inc. material and transport and a boattrip to see dolphins and turtles for... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in a cabana for 250p per night. Room had 3 beds and 2 fans and got very hot during the day. The cabanas all face the pool which can also get very hot during the day. But in the morning and evening is a nice place to cool down. Pool area is very socialble. Most... More

Zicatela Beach is the location to be in Puerto Escondido - the beaches are nice and wide with plenty of restaurants/bars and surfing. The Hotel Rockaway, just across the street from the beach was in a great spot! It has a 24 hour convenience store attached to the reception office - big bonus. We stayed in an air conditioned hotel... More

There's a lot happening at the Rockaway and most of it involves noise. When it isn't generating its own from the Friday and Tuesday night live music—and daily happy hour crowd (except Sundays)—the disco a few doors down the street makes its own significant contribution. Still, I had a good time and liked the central location. At M$250 a night... More

We were warned when booking that the hotel was noizy, and for the most part was not too bad and died down around midnight. New Years eve and the next night there were many 20 somthing crowd anf they partied all night. The rooms were clean, we had hot water and aircon, so found the hotel great.

We arrived in P.E. without reservations so we walked around looking at different rates and rooms. Rockaway was by far the best deal we could find. I can't remember how much we paid...less than $50 for sure, maybe even less than $40, for a great room with AC. They also have bungalows without AC for much cheaper. Don't expect luxury... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed there for a week and just loved the place, it's location is right in front of one of the best surfing spots, Zicatela beach. The rooms are very clean, we stayed at the cheap cabañas but they had also rooms with ac if you needed that. We looked at other hotels before deciding for the... More
