We've stayed at Playa Bonita a number of times and have always found the staff friendly and helpful, the rooms clean, and the restaurant overlooking the beach very good. This in not a high level luxury resort, but neither are the prices. A decent place to stay on the beach for a reasonable price.

I stayed at this hotel 25 years ago and since then the owners have doubled the size of the hotel and improved the grounds but the rooms need improvement, especially the bathrooms. Overall the hotel is still clean and comfortable and great location for the beach.

The view of the beach is wonderful. All rooms face the beach but some have unobstructed views. 2nd and 3rd floors are the best. Place is in need of repair. My heater didn't work. They offered to move me to another room. But I didn't want to give up the view.

Playa Bonita is a cute affordable little hotel with the basics that you would need: The lobby, rooms, and pool area were clean (although the balcony in my room could have used some dusting), beds are decent, friendly staff, free wifi in the lobby, beach towels provided, restaurant right next door (didn't get a chance to try it though).

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times and would definitely stay here again. The hotel is right on a stretch of beautiful beach--you can walk directly from the patio to the water. The patio also has 2 pools and a Jacuzzi. The rooms are comfortable and clean and have balconies overlooking the Sea of Cortez. There is... More

This hotel goes out of the way to make sure your stay is the best possible. Location is prime and the food is amazing, especially the weekend breakfast. Off-season and mid-week are my favorite times to stay and avoid the crowds. This is a family friendly place and they also pull off extraordinary events. I had the pleasure of sharing... More

This is a great place because it's nice, clean, on the beach and very affordable. The only times not to go are holidays and spring bresk, the rest of the year it's fantastic. It's not crowded at during the weekdays so you have entire stretch to yourself.

If you're going to stay at the RV Park - LOCK UP EVERYTHING - ALWAYS! We carelessly left out my camera and hubby's binoculars - GONE in the morning! The following day, when we went to use the computer at the "reading room" (because we could not access any WiFi in the park) our RV was accessed and about $400... More
