My boyfriend and I went to Rocky Point for our two year anniversary and had a blast! Playa Bonita isn't exactly the top resort or anything, but for the price it is just right. It sits directly on the beach and even if you don't purchase an ocean front room the view is beautiful! The rooms were average, nothing super... More

We make an afternoon/sunset at Playa Bonita Restaurant part of every trip we make to Rocky Point. The Cadillac margarita is delicious, they have great food, and service is good also. Make a visit here part of your next trip.

Our drive to Mexico was easy and uneventful .. The hotel I booked was a hole in the wall. We drove to the Playa Bonito Hotel Resort and were welcomed and booked a room top floor Ocean Side ( awesome view ).. 20 dollars more a night then the hotel we just cancelled. Playa Bonito is on Sandy Beach right... More

I stayed at Playa Bonita Hotel with my husband and a bunch of family on June 24th and 25th. We loved it. The rooms were clean, spacious, and with a lovely balcony with the ocean view. We were able to check in earlier than 3pm, which was nice! The staff was very friendly and willing to help at all times.... More

They won't accept reservations via email or telephone - they always say to send in a deposit (usually $20 or first night's rent) with your date requests, site request and contact info. I've called to change my reservations, but haven't ever asked for a refund. They have storage nearby - I think it's now $36/month and they charge about $6... More

the hotel seems a lot nicer on online pictures. there was a patch of drywall on our wall that hadn't been painted over which looked tacky, the rooms were not clean and the front desk service sucked. the only pro to this hotel is the beautiful beach other than that it was a disappointment!

If you don't look at the walls or the floors it's not so bad. I don't think the bathroom has been really scrubbed cleaned in a long time and it shows it, disgusting. Staff at front desk needs to have training in customer service. Door locks were tricky and not easy to lock. No bedside clock or coffee maker. Beach... More

We returned to Playa Bonita for the first time since 2007. Back then it was one of the best places to at in Rocky Point. Now its become a wanna be resort with very expensive prices for what they offer. We have stayed at better Motel 6. The staff have no customer service skill at all. They make up excuses... More
