I do not recommend this hotel, the rooms are in very bad shape. The TV does not work, not safe enough, broken mirror and incomplete toilet. The location is very good because it is close to the beach, but still the rooms are not nice. The personnel is friendly, the rates are accessible (about $70 USD per night) for a... More

We'd have to give the "restrooms" a minus one... More

We stayed at Hotel del Pirata on Playa la Ropa. http://www.hoteldelpirata.com Cost was 600 pesos($50) per night for AC room w/ view of beach. Restaurant is not so great, but owners and staff are very helpful and accommodating. This end of beach is away from larger hotels, but gets busy as it is popular with Mexican people. Free use of...
