Very friendly..I do not know what is up with Play Bonita. They told me that have Managers have made some changes. Please go back to the way it was. This Hotel is... More

Our family of 4 stayed in this lovely hotel. two years in a row, to celebrate the holidays. It is charming, clean, friendly, safe, and only steps from the beach. Their beautiful restaurant has a daily happy hour where we watched the sun set over the sea each evening. We experienced no hidden charges, were fully accommodated with any requests... More

We decided to drive down from Tucson, last minute after Thanksgiving. Playa Bonita is the original hotel on this lovely flat stretch of beach outside of town and we'd heard good things. It's definitely not your ultra modern hotel, but it's also not a Motel 6 as another reviewer said. The staff was nice, made good recommendations for meals in... More

Definitely not a resort. Motel 6 quality. Hidden charges. No toiletries, no blow dryer, had to ask 3 times for towels. No coffee maker in the room. Had to go down to lobby to get coffee. Very messy area. Pool area totally out of control. People smoking although advertised as a NON SMOKING property, people drinking beer out of glass... More

It's ok, clean, right by playa Bonita beach, basic , wifi it's only good in lobby. The room with the ocean view I'd good for the people to watch the sea. But it's not worth it for $100 a night. If the closeness to the beach is not important , I rather to pay $30 a night and stay in... More

The place is good not the best but the service is good the rooms are pretty clean the pool area is nice on the beach. They really need more towels and chairs to accommodate the guest but other than that it's all good. For a budget vacation the place is great. For the price you really can't complain. The hotel...

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay here. The lady at the front desk was very helpful and recommended some great restaurants for us to try in town. Our room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The view from the room was amazing as this hotel is located on the beach. This was my first time... More
