Loved this hotel. Easy on the price, great location, and friendly staff. Definitely staying here next time we come. Having a restaurant and bar so close made it even better and withe the scenery, you can't go wrong. We came here for a wedding and enjoyed every minute of this place

The best thing about this hotel is the price for location. Being right on the beach is very nice, however, some other items could use improvement. There was always a line 10-15 minutes (not holiday weekend) when we stopped by the front desk and requests for towels etc had to be made multiple times in person and over the phone.... More

One of the earliest high-rise hotels heading out to Sandy Beach, this has a comfortably large reception area and a bar for meeting up with friends. The place is a bit dated and needs some upgrading, but overall, worth the price, which is much less than the rest of the places further down Sandy Beach. It has a good view... More

Friendly people!! In front of the beach!! Nice view!! Clean rooms!! The food from the buffet is great!! Why pay more money if you are going to the beach you're not going to stay on the room!! Why pay $300 when you can pay $110.00 for a night just going to go to sleep in the room!!

Just returned from my first stay at Playa Bonita Hotel en Penasco Mexico, AkA Rocky Point. Loved the beachfront location with many rooms having beach front views. Pool area clean and well tended. Friendly staff and I like the fact that only those staying at hotel had use of pool and jacuzzi keeping it from overcrowding, green bands alerts security... More

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).
